0.\(\bar{4}\)

\(\frac{□}{□}\)

Answer:

\(\frac{4}{9}\)

Explanation:

Let x = 0.\(\bar{4}\)

Question 20.

A \(\frac{7}{16}\)-inch-long bolt is used in a machine. What is the length of the bolt written as a decimal?

______ -inch-long

Answer:

0.4375 inch

Explanation:

The length of the bolt is \(\frac{7}{16}\)-inch

Let, x = \(\frac{7}{16}\)

Multiplying by 125 on both nominator and denominator

x = \(\frac{7×125}{16×125}\) = \(\frac{875}{2000}\) =\(\frac{437.5}{1000}\) = 0.4375

Question 21.

The weight of an object on the moon is \(\frac{1}{6}\) its weight on Earth. Write \(\frac{1}{6}\) as a decimal.

______

Answer:

0.1666

Explanation:

The weight of the object on the moon is \(\frac{1}{6}\)

Let, x = \(\frac{1}{6}\)

Multiplying by 100 on both nominator and denominator

x = \(\frac{1×100}{6×100}\) = \(\frac{16.6}{100}\) =0.166

Question 22.

______

Answer:

2.8

Explanation:

The distance of the nearest gas station is 2 \(\frac{4}{5}\)

Let, x = 2 \(\frac{4}{5}\)

Multiplying by 100 on both nominator and denominator

x = 2 \(\frac{4×100}{5×100}\) = \(\frac{80}{100}\) =0.8

Question 23.

A baseball pitcher has pitched 98 \(\frac{2}{3}\) innings. What is the number of innings written as a decimal?

______

Answer:

The average score on a biology test was 72.\(\bar{1}\).

72.\(\bar{1}\)

Let x = 72.\(\bar{1}\)

10x = 10(72.\(\bar{1}\))

10x = 721.1

-x = -0.1

9x = 721

x = 721/9

x = 80 1/9

Question 29.

Analyze Relationships To find \(\sqrt { 15 } \), Beau found 3^{2} = 9 and 4^{2} = 16. He said that since 15 is between 9 and 16, \(\sqrt { 15 } \) must be between 3 and 4. He thinks a good estimate for \(\sqrt { 15 } \) is \(\frac { 3+4 }{ 2 } \) = 3.5. Is Beau’s estimate high, low, or correct? Explain.

_____________

Answer:

3.85

Explanation:

15 is closer to 16

√15 is closer to √16

Beau’s estimate is low.

(3.8)² = 14.44

(3.85)² = 14.82

(3.9)² = 15.21

√15 is 3.85

Question 30.

Justify Reasoning What is a good estimate for the solution to the equation x^{3} = 95? How did you come up with your estimate?

x ≈ ______

Answer:

x ≈ 4.55

Explanation:

^{3}√x = 95

x = ^{3}√95

64 < 95 < 125

Take the cube root of each number

^{3}√64 < ^{3}√95 < ^{3}√125

4 < ^{3}√95 < 5

^{3}√95 = 4.6

(4.5)³ = 91.125

(4.55)³ = 94.20

(4.6)³ = 97.336

^{3}√95 = 4.55

Question 31.

The volume of a sphere is 36π ft^{3}. What is the radius of the sphere? Use the formula V = \(\frac { 4 }{ 3 } \)πr^{3} to find your answer.

r = 3

Explanation:

V = 4/3 πr³

36π = 4/3 πr³

r³ = 36π/π . 3/4

r³ = 27

r = ^{3}√27

r = 3

Question 34.

Persevere in Problem Solving

The difference between the solutions to the equation x^{2} = a is 30. What is a? Show that your answer is correct.

_____

Answer:

30

Explanation:

x^{2} = a

x = ±√a

√a – (-√a) = 30

√a + √a = 30

2√a = 30

√a = 15

a = 225

x^{2} = 225

x = ±225

x = ±15

15 – (-15) = 15 + 15 = 30

Communicate Mathematical Ideas Irrational numbers can never be precisely represented in decimal form. Why is this?

Answer:

Because irrational numbers are nonrepeating, otherwise they could be represented as a fraction. Although a potential counter-example to this claim is that some irrational numbers can only be represented in decimal form, for example, 0.1234567891011121314151617…, 0.24681012141618202224…, 0.101101110111101111101111110… are all irrational numbers.

Question 20.

A teacher asks his students to write the numbers shown in order from least to greatest. Paul thinks the numbers are already in order. Sandra thinks the order should be reversed. Who is right?

_____________

Answer:

Neither are correct

Explanation:

\(\sqrt { 115 } \), 115/11, 10.5624

\(\sqrt { 115 } \) is between 10 and 11

Since, 115 is closer to 121, (10.7)² = 114.5, hence the estimated value is 10.7

Question 7.

A square patio has an area of 200 square feet. How long is each side of the patio to the nearest 0.05?

______ feet

Answer:

14.15 feet

Explanation:

The area of a square is found by multiplying the side of the square by itself. Therefore, to find the side of the square, we have to take the square root of the area.

Let’s denote with A the area of the patio and with s each side of the square.

We have:

A = 200

A = s.s

s = \(\sqrt { A } \) = \(\sqrt { 200 } \)

Following the steps as in “Explore Activity” on page 9, we can make an estimation for the irrational number:

196 < 200 < 225

\(\sqrt { 196 } \) < \(\sqrt { 200 } \) < \(\sqrt { 225 } \)

14 < \(\sqrt { 200 } \) < 15

We see that 200 is much closer to 196 than to 225, therefore the square root of it should be between 14 and 14.5. To make a better estimation, we pick some numbers between 14 and 14.5 and calculate their squares:

(14.1)² = 198.81

(14.2)² = 201.64

14.1 < \(\sqrt { 200 } \) < 14.2

\(\sqrt { 200 } \) = 14.15

We see that 200 is much closer to 14.1 than to 14.2, therefore the square root of it should be between 14.1 and 14.15. If we round to the nearest 0.05, we have:

s = 14.15

2 < \(\sqrt { 8 }\) < 3

1 < 3 < 4

\(\sqrt { 11 }\) lies in between 3 and 4

\(\sqrt { 5 }\) + 11 lies in between 13 and 14

Explanation:

\(\sqrt { 99 }\), π^{2}, 9.\(\bar { 8 }\)

99 lies between 9² and 10²

99 is closer to 100, hence \(\sqrt { 99 }\) is closer to 10

(9.9)² = 98.01

(9.95)² = 99.0025

(10)² = 100

\(\sqrt { 99 }\) = 9.95

\(\sqrt { \frac { 1 }{ 25 } } \) = 1/5 = 0.2

Question 1.

The square root of a number is 9. What is the other square root?

Options:

a. -9

b. -3

c. 3

d. 81

Answer:

a. -9

Explanation:

We know that every positive number has two square roots, one positive and one negative. We are given the principal square root (9), so the other square root would be its negative (-9). To prove that, we square both numbers and we compare the results:

9 • 9 = 81

Question 2.

A square acre of land is 4,840 square yards. Between which two integers is the length of one side?

Options:

a. between 24 and 25 yards

b. between 69 and 70 yards

c. between 242 and 243 yards

d. between 695 and 696 yards

Answer:

b. between 69 and 70 yards

Explanation:

The area of a square is found by multiplying the side of the square by itself. Therefore, to Bud the side of the square, we have to take the square root of the area.

Let’s denote with A the area of the land and with each side of the square. We have:

A = 4840

A = s . s

A = s²

s = √A = √4840

Following the steps as in °Explore Activity on page 9, we can make an estimation for the irrational number:

4761 < 4840 < 4900

\(\sqrt { 4761 }\) < \(\sqrt { 4840 }\) < \(\sqrt { 4900 }\)

69 < \(\sqrt { 4840 }\) < 70

Each side of the land is between 69 and 70 yards.
