Evaluate log√24+log1216−log432

**Answer Details**

To solve this equation, we can use the logarithmic identity log(a) + log(b) = log(ab) and log(a) - log(b) = log(a/b). Using this identity, we can simplify the equation: log√24 + log1216 − log432 = log(24^(1/2)) + log(1216) - log(432) = log(4^(1/2) * 6^(1/2)) + log(1216) - log(432) = log(2*3) + log(1216) - log(432) = log(2*3*1216/432) = log(16) Therefore, the answer is 2.5. In summary, we use logarithmic identities to simplify the equation and find that the answer is 2.5.

Find the slope of the curve y = 2x2n+ 5x - 3 at (1, 4).

**Answer Details**

To find the slope of the curve at a specific point, we need to find the first derivative of the curve and substitute the x-coordinate of the point of interest to obtain the slope. The given curve is y = 2x^{2}n + 5x - 3, and its first derivative is obtained by differentiating each term with respect to x. dy/dx = 4xn + 5 Substituting x = 1 (as given) into the derivative, we get: dy/dx = 4(1)n + 5 = 4 + 5 = 9 Therefore, the slope of the curve at the point (1,4) is 9.

A cinema halll contains a certain number of people. If 25/2% are children, 95/2% are men and 84 are women, find the number of men in the hall.

**Answer Details**

Let's use algebra to solve this problem. Let the total number of people in the hall be x. Then we can write two equations based on the given information: - (25/2)% of x are children: (25/2)% * x = 0.25x - (95/2)% of x are men: (95/2)% * x = 0.95x We know that 84 people in the hall are women. So the total number of men and children in the hall is: x - 84 We can set up an equation using this expression and the two equations we found above: 0.25x + 0.95x = x - 84 Simplifying this equation, we get: 1.2x = x - 84 0.2x = -84 x = -420 This answer doesn't make sense because we can't have a negative number of people in the hall. We made an error somewhere. Let's check our work. We can see that our equation for the total number of people in the hall doesn't take into account the 84 women. We need to add 84 to our equation: x = 0.25x + 0.95x + 84 Simplifying this equation, we get: x = 1.2x + 84 0.2x = 84 x = 420 This is the correct total number of people in the hall. Now we can find the number of men: 0.95x = 0.95 * 420 = 399 So there are 399 men in the hall. Therefore, the answer is option (D) 133.

A bag contains 5 blacks balls and 3 red balls. Two balls are picked at random without replacement. What is the probability that a black and red balls are picked?

**Answer Details**

There are 5 black balls and 3 red balls in the bag, so there are a total of 8 balls. When two balls are picked at random without replacement, there are (8 choose 2) = 28 ways of doing so. To pick a black ball and a red ball, we can pick one black ball from the 5 available, and one red ball from the 3 available. There are (5 choose 1) = 5 ways to pick one black ball, and (3 choose 1) = 3 ways to pick one red ball. By the multiplication principle, there are a total of 5 × 3 = 15 ways to pick a black ball and a red ball. Therefore, the probability of picking a black ball and a red ball is 15/28.

Three consecutive terms of a geometric progression are given as n-2, n and n=3. Find the common ratio

**Answer Details**

In a geometric progression, each term is obtained by multiplying the previous term by a fixed constant called the common ratio (r). Therefore, if we divide any two consecutive terms in a geometric progression, we get the same value for the common ratio. In this problem, the three consecutive terms are given as n-2, n, and n+3. We can divide the second term (n) by the first term (n-2) to get: n / (n-2) We can also divide the third term (n+3) by the second term (n) to get: (n+3) / n Since these two values must be equal to the common ratio (r), we can set them equal to each other and solve for r: n / (n-2) = (n+3) / n n^2 = n(n-2) + (n+3)(n-2) n^2 = n^2 - 2n + n^2 - 5n + 6 0 = n^2 - 7n + 6 0 = (n-1)(n-6) This equation has two solutions, n=1 and n=6. However, n cannot be equal to 1 because that would make the first term (n-2) equal to -1, which is not allowed in a geometric progression. Therefore, n must be equal to 6. Plugging n=6 back into the equation for the common ratio, we get: r = (n+3) / n = 9 / 6 = 3/2 Therefore, the correct answer is: 3/2.

The graph of the function y = x2 + 4 and a straight line PQ are drawn to solve the equation x2 - 3x + 2 = 0. What is the equation of PQ?

**Answer Details**

To solve the equation x^2 - 3x + 2 = 0, we can factor it into (x - 1)(x - 2) = 0. This means that x = 1 or x = 2. Now, we can plug these values of x into the equation y = x^2 + 4 to get the corresponding y values. When x = 1, y = 5 and when x = 2, y = 8. We also know that the line PQ intersects the graph of y = x^2 + 4 at two points, since the equation x^2 - 3x + 2 = 0 has two solutions. Since the line PQ is a straight line, we can find its equation by using the slope-intercept form, y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. To find the slope, we can use the two points of intersection between PQ and the parabola, which are (1, 5) and (2, 8). The slope is the change in y over the change in x, which is (8 - 5)/(2 - 1) = 3. To find the y-intercept, we can plug in the coordinates of one of the points into the slope-intercept form and solve for b. Using (1, 5), we get: 5 = 3(1) + b b = 2 So the equation of PQ is y = 3x + 2, which is.

Factorize completely 4abx - 2axy -12b2x + 6bxy

**Answer Details**

To factorize the given expression completely, we need to look for the common factors among the terms. First, we can take out 2 as a common factor from all the terms. So the expression becomes: 2(2abx - axy - 6b^2x + 3bxy) Next, we can take out ax as a common factor from the first two terms and 3bx as a common factor from the last two terms. So we get: 2ax(2b - y) - 3bx(2b - y) Now, we can see that (2b - y) is a common factor in both terms, so we can take it out. This gives us: (2b - y)(2ax - 3bx) So, the expression is completely factorized as (2b - y)(2ax - 3bx). Thus, the correct option is: 2x(a - 3b)(2b - y)

A woman buys 270 oranges for ₦1800.00 and seels at 5 for ₦40.00. What is her profit?

**Answer Details**

The cost of one orange can be found by dividing the total cost by the number of oranges: Cost of one orange = 1800/270 = ₦6.67 (rounded to two decimal places) The selling price of 5 oranges is ₦40.00. So the selling price of one orange is: Selling price of one orange = 40/5 = ₦8.00 Profit per orange = Selling price - Cost price = ₦8.00 - ₦6.67 = ₦1.33 Total profit = Profit per orange x number of oranges sold = ₦1.33 x 270 = ₦359.10 Therefore, the woman's profit is ₦360.00 (rounded up to the nearest naira). So the answer is: ₦360.00

If nP3 - 6(nC4) = 0, find the value of n

**Answer Details**

The given expression is an equation that involves the binomial coefficients nP3 and nC4, where n is an integer. We are asked to find the value of n that satisfies the equation: nP3 - 6(nC4) = 0 Using the formula for the binomial coefficients, we can simplify the expression: nP3 = n(n-1)(n-2) nC4 = n(n-1)(n-2)(n-3)/4! Substituting these expressions into the given equation, we get: n(n-1)(n-2) - 6(n(n-1)(n-2)(n-3)/4!) = 0 Simplifying further: n(n-1)(n-2)(1 - 6(n-3)/4!) = 0 Since n is an integer, we must have either n = 0, n = 1, n = 2 or 1 - 6(n-3)/4! = 0. However, n cannot be 0, 1, or 2 because nP3 and nC4 are defined only for n >= 4. Therefore, we need to solve the equation: 1 - 6(n-3)/4! = 0 6(n-3)/4! = 1 n-3 = 4! / 6 n-3 = 4 n = 7 Hence, the value of n that satisfies the given equation is 7.

In set theory, the complement of a set A, denoted by A', is the set of all elements in the universal set that are not in A. In this question, we are given three sets: U, P, and Q. U is the set of even numbers between 0 and 30, P is the set of multiples of 6 between 0 and 30, and Q is the set of multiples of 4 between 0 and 30. To find (P∪Q)c, we first need to find P∪Q, which is the union of P and Q. The union of two sets is the set of all elements that are in either set. In this case, P∪Q is the set of all multiples of either 4 or 6 between 0 and 30. We can list out the elements of P∪Q: {0, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30} To find (P∪Q)c, we need to find the complement of P∪Q, which is the set of all even numbers between 0 and 30 that are not multiples of either 4 or 6. We can list out the even numbers between 0 and 30 that are not multiples of 4 or 6: {2, 10, 14, 22, 26} Therefore, the answer is option A: {2, 10, 14, 22, 26}.

Determine the maximum value of y = 3x2 - x3

**Answer Details**

To find the maximum value of y = 3x^2 - x^3, we can take the derivative of y with respect to x, set it equal to zero, and solve for x. First, we find the derivative of y: dy/dx = 6x - 3x^2 Setting this equal to zero gives: 6x - 3x^2 = 0 Factor out x: x(6 - 3x) = 0 Solving for x, we get two solutions: x = 0 or x = 2 To determine which value of x gives the maximum value of y, we can use the second derivative test. Taking the second derivative of y: d^2y/dx^2 = 6 - 6x Plugging in x = 0 and x = 2: d^2y/dx^2 |x=0 = 6 > 0 d^2y/dx^2 |x=2 = -6 < 0 Since the second derivative is positive at x = 0 and negative at x = 2, this means that x = 0 corresponds to a minimum value of y, while x = 2 corresponds to a maximum value of y. Therefore, the maximum value of y = 3x^2 - x^3 occurs when x = 2, and is equal to: y = 3(2)^2 - (2)^3 = 4. So the answer is 4.

If y = 3 sin(-4x), *dy/dx* is

**Answer Details**

To find the derivative of y with respect to x, we use the chain rule of differentiation, which states that if y = f(g(x)), then dy/dx = f'(g(x)) * g'(x). In this case, we have y = 3 sin(-4x), so f(g(x)) = 3 sin(g(x)) and g(x) = -4x. Therefore, f'(g(x)) = 3 cos(g(x)) and g'(x) = -4. Plugging these values into the chain rule, we get: dy/dx = f'(g(x)) * g'(x) = 3 cos(-4x) * (-4) = -12 cos(4x) Therefore, the correct answer is: -12x cos(-4x).

To evaluate the integral ?23(x^2 - 2x)dx, we need to find the antiderivative of the integrand and then apply the definite integral between the limits of integration, 2 and 3. First, we find the antiderivative of x^2 - 2x: ∫(x^2 - 2x)dx = (1/3)x^3 - x^2 + C where C is the constant of integration. Next, we apply the limits of integration, 2 and 3: ∫2^3(x^2 - 2x)dx = [(1/3)3^3 - 3^2] - [(1/3)2^3 - 2^2] = (27/3 - 9) - (8/3 - 4) = 9 - (8/3) = (27/3) - (8/3) = 19/3 Therefore, the value of the integral ?23(x^2 - 2x)dx is 19/3.

The length a person can jump is inversely proportional to his weight. If a 20 kg person can jump 1.5 m, find the constant of proportionality

**Answer Details**

Inverse proportionality means that as one quantity increases, the other decreases in a proportional manner. In this case, the length a person can jump is inversely proportional to his weight. Let's assume that the constant of proportionality is represented by 'k'. We can use the following formula to solve for 'k': Jump length ∝ 1/Weight Jump length = k/Weight We know that a 20 kg person can jump 1.5 m. So we can substitute these values into the formula and solve for 'k': 1.5 = k/20 k = 30 Therefore, the constant of proportionality is 30. This means that if we multiply the weight of a person by 30, we will get the length of the jump they can make. For example, a person who weighs 60 kg will be able to jump half the distance of a person who weighs 30 kg.

On the pie chart, there are four sectors of which three angles are 45∘ $\circ $, 90∘ $\circ $ and 135∘ $\circ $. If the smallest sector represents N28.00, how much is the largest sector?

**Answer Details**

To solve this problem, we need to first find the total angle of the pie chart, which is always 360∘. Next, we need to determine the value of one degree of the pie chart. We can do this by dividing the value of the smallest sector (N28.00) by its corresponding angle (45∘): N28.00 ÷ 45∘ = N0.62 per degree Now that we know the value of one degree, we can use it to find the value of the largest sector, which has an angle of 135∘: N0.62 × 135∘ = N83.70 Therefore, the largest sector represents N83.70, which is closest to the option N84.00.

Simplify 1 - (7/3 x 5/4) + 2/5

**Answer Details**

To simplify the expression 1 - (7/3 x 5/4) + 2/5, we first need to evaluate the product of the fractions inside the parentheses: 7/3 x 5/4 = (7 x 5)/(3 x 4) = 35/12 Substituting this value back into the original expression, we get: 1 - 35/12 + 2/5 To combine the fractions, we need to find a common denominator. The least common multiple of 12 and 5 is 60, so we can convert the fractions as follows: 1 = 60/60 35/12 = (35 x 5)/(12 x 5) = 175/60 2/5 = 24/60 Substituting these values back into the expression, we get: 60/60 - 175/60 + 24/60 = -91/60 Therefore, the simplified form of the expression is -91/60. Therefore, the correct answer is: -79/60.

Find the range of values of x which satisfy the inequalities 4x - 7 ≤ $\le $ 3x and 3x - 4 ≤ $\le $ 4x

**Answer Details**

To solve the system of inequalities 4x - 7 ≤ y ≤ 3x and 3x - 4 ≤ y ≤ 4x, we can use the following steps: 1. For the first inequality, isolate y in the middle by adding 7 to both sides: 4x - 7 + 7 ≤ y + 7 ≤ 3x + 7, which simplifies to 4x ≤ y + 7 ≤ 3x + 7. 2. For the second inequality, isolate y in the middle by adding 4 to both sides: 3x - 4 + 4 ≤ y + 4 ≤ 4x + 4, which simplifies to 3x ≤ y + 4 ≤ 4x + 4. 3. We want to find the range of values of x that satisfy both inequalities. To do this, we need to find the intersection of the two intervals [4x, 3x + 7] and [3x, 4x + 4] for y. 4. We start by finding the maximum lower bound of the two intervals. The lower bound of [4x, 3x + 7] is 4x, and the lower bound of [3x, 4x + 4] is 4x. So the maximum lower bound is 4x. 5. We then find the minimum upper bound of the two intervals. The upper bound of [4x, 3x + 7] is 3x + 7, and the upper bound of [3x, 4x + 4] is 4x + 4. So the minimum upper bound is 3x + 7. 6. Therefore, the range of values of x that satisfy both inequalities is 4x ≤ y + 7 ≤ 3x + 7 and 3x - 4 ≤ y ≤ 4x, which simplifies to 4x ≤ y + 7 ≤ 3x + 7 and 3x - 4 ≤ y ≤ 4x. 7. To solve for x, we can use the second inequality: 3x - 4 ≤ y ≤ 4x. We can substitute the upper bound of y with 4x and the lower bound of y with 3x - 4 to get 3x - 4 ≤ 3x - 4 ≤ x ≤ 4x. Therefore, the range of values of x that satisfy both inequalities is -4 ≤ x ≤ 7. Therefore, the correct option is "-4 ≤ x ≤ 7".
