If all men had identical body types, their weight would vary directly as the cube of their height. the tallest person reached a record height of 8 feet 11 inches (107 inches) before his death at age 22. if a man who is 5 feet 10 inches tall (70 inches) with the same body type as the tallest person weighs 170 pounds, what was the tallest person's weight shortly before his death?
45.44/71 - 1 = -0.36 = -36%
4 ln x=2ln25
replace 25 with 5^2
4 ln x=2ln (5^2)
we know that ln a^b = b ln a
4 ln x =2 2ln 5
4 ln x = 4 ln 5
divide by 4
4/4 ln x = 4/4 ln 5
ln x = ln 5
x = 5
to calculate the distance (d) use the distance formula
d = √ (x₂ - x₁ )² + (y₂ - y₁ )²
with (x₁, y₁ ) = (- 5, 0) and (x₂, y₂ ) = (0, - 5)
= = = = 5 ← exact value
each person will get or approximately 0.23 pounds of chicken.
this is a word problem involving fractions. using key words and phrases from the problem, we can decide which operation we need to use to solve. since jamie is splitting the chicken equally between three people, she would need to divide the amount of chicken she has by 3:
since we can't divide fractions, we need to use the 'keep-change-flip' rule to keep the first fraction, change the operation to multiplication and flip the second fraction:
we can convert the fraction into a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator: 7÷30≈0.23 pounds per person.
