Please help with this question.

Jared packed some sweets and chocolates into gift bags as door gifts for his birthday party. He tried

putting every 2 sweets with 1 chocolate into a bag and found that he had 30 chocolate left. When he put every 2 sweets with 2 chocolates, he needed another 50 chocolates. How many sweets and chocolates did he have altogether?

To put one more chocolates in each bag, he will need 80 chocolates. So he has a total of 80 gift bags.RJ_164 wrote:Please help with this question.

Total chocolates and candies he had 270 (3*80 + 30).

Then (X - 20) cm is the increase in the water level of Tank B and (28 - X) cm is the decrease in the water level of Tank A.

If the water level in Tank A falls by 1 cm, then its volume decreases by 1 cm × 756.25 cm² = 756.25 cm³.

If the water level in Tank B rises by 1 cm, then its volume increases by 1 cm × 5 cm × 5 cm = 25 cm³.

We know moreover that the increase in volume of water in Tank B equals the decrease in volume of water in Tank A. Therefore:

(X - 20) × 25 = (28 - X) × 756.25.

Do the algebra:

⇒ (25 + 756.25) X = 28 × 756.25 + 20 × 25

⇒ 781.25X = 21675

⇒ X = 27.744.

Hope this helps and feel free to ask for any clarifications.

This length is highlighted in red, green, and blue colours in the figure below.

The red lengths on the left and right sides simply add up to 2 × 15 cm = 30 cm.

The green length on the upper side is 38 cm - 2 × 7 cm = 24 cm. The blue length on the upper side is half the circumference of the circle: π̶r̶=̶ ̶3̶.̶1̶4̶ ̶×̶ ̶7̶ ̶=̶ ̶2̶1̶.̶9̶8̶

Altogether, the green and blue lengths on the upper side add up to 34.99 cm.

Symmetrically, the green and blue lengths on the lower side add up to 34.99 cm.

Altogether then, the total length is 30 + 34.99 + 34.99 = 99.98 cm.

Hope this helps and feel free to ask for any clarifications.

Hi Dr Choo,

Thanks so much for your help. For question 13, the answer in answer sheet is 99.98cm. I think it could be wrong, I am not sure. Nevertheless, we thank you for helping us solve it.

Thanks

Dido

God Bless13.I interpret this question to be asking for the length of the perimeter of Figure 1 with which Ball A comes into contact, during its journey.

This length is highlighted in red, green, and blue colours in the figure below.

The red lengths on the left and right sides simply add up to 2 × 15 cm = 30 cm.

The green length on the upper side is 38 cm - 2 × 7 cm = 24 cm. The blue length on the upper side is half the circumference of the circle: πr= 3.14 × 7 = 21.98.

Altogether, the green and blue lengths on the upper side add up to 45.98 cm.

Symmetrically, the green and blue lengths on the lower side add up to 45.98 cm.

Altogether then, the total length is 30 + 45.98 + 45.98 = 121.96 cm.

Hope this helps and feel free to ask for any clarifications.

If you found this answer helpful, then please help me out by spreading word of my services. I’m a new tutor in Singapore so I need some help getting word out! Thank you!

The blue length on the upper side is half the circumference of the circle:

πr= 3.14 × 7 x 1/2 = 21.98 x 1/2 =

Cheers
