Let the number of Yellow counters you already have is Y

Let the number of non-yellow counters you already have is Z

Then the current ratio of Yellow counters to the total counters is Y : Y + Z

Let the number of Blue counters you add be B

After they have been added, the ratio of Yellow counters to the total counters is Y : Y + Z + B

This is 1 : 6

Thus Y = 1

and Y + Z + B = 6

→ Z + B = 5

Which means that for the Yellow counters you have you will have five times as many counters made up of whatever non-Yellow counters you originally had plus the Blue counters you added.

Thus to find out how many Blue counters to add, take the number of Yellow counters, multiply it by 5 and subtract the number of non yellow counters you originally had.

examples:

You had 6 Yellow counters

Add 6 × 5 - 0 = 30 Blue counters

Which gives you 6 Yellow and 30 Blue counters

→ ratio Yellow : total counters = 6 : 30 + 6 = 6 : 36 = 1 : 6

You had 4 Yellow counters and 6 Red counters

Add 4 × 5 - 6 = 14 Blue counters

Which gives you 4 Yellow counters, 6 Red counters and 14 Blue counters

→ ratio Yellow : total counters = 4 : 6 + 14 + 4 = 4 : 24 = 1 : 6

You had 4 Yellow Counters, 2 Blue counters and 3 Red counters

Add 4 × 5 - (2 + 3) = 15 Blue counters

Which gives you 4 Yellow counters, 3 Red counters and 2 + 15 = 17 Blue counters

→ ratio Yellow : total counters = 4 : 3 + 17 + 4 = 4 : 24 = 1 : 6

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

12 counters are arranged in 4 dishes how could you rearrange the shaded or white counters to clearly show two equivalent fractions?

move one unshaded counter to the 3rd dish that only has two circles in it. You have 12 total counters ..9 are shaded 3 are not. fractions would be 9/12 and 3/4 (9 counters are shaded out of 12 total counters) and (3 dishes out of 4 are shaded)

What is given is: total assets = $422,235,811 Debt ratio = 29.5% Find: debt-to-equity ratio Equity multiplier Debt-to-equity ratio = total debt / total equity Total debt ratio = total debt / total assets Total debt = total debt ratio x total assets = 0.295 x 422,235,811 = 124,559,564.2 Total assets = total equity + total debt Total equity = total assets - total debt = 422,235,811 - 124,559,564.2 = 297,676,246.8 Debt-to-equity ratio = total debt / total equity = 124,559,564.2 / 297,676,246.8 = 0.4184 Equity multiplier = total assets / total equity = 422,235,811 / 297,676,246.8 = 1.418
