4 times y divided by 9
well, 4y= 4 times a number (y), and then u divide that by 9
the answer is right there in the question
4*y divided by 9
terry eats 6 wings, paly eats 8 wings, steggy eats 12 wings ,bronto eats 17 wings and rexy eats 17 wings
given : five dinosaurs go for a walk and come across some lovely chicken wings. their names are rexy, bronto, steggy, paly, and terry.
also given, there are exactly 5 dozen wings that is 12 × 5 = 60
given: terry is on a diet and he only eats 6 wings.
if paly eats 2 more than terry that is 6 +2 = 8 wings.
steggy eats 4 more than paly that is 8 + 4 = 12 wings.
wings left = 60 - (6 + 8 + 12) = 60 - 26 = 34 wings
bronto and rexy eat the same amount that is they divide 34 wings in equal amount.
wings bronto and rexy eats = 17 wings
thus, terry eats 6 wings, paly eats 8 wings, steggy eats 12 wings ,bronto eats 17 wings and rexy eats 17 wings
x = 4
note the exact value of tan60° =
since the triangle is right use the tangent ratio to find x
tan60° = =
multiply both sides by x
x × = 4
divide both sides by
x = = 4 × = 4
