1/4 2

____ = ____

50 x

1/4x = 100

x = 100 x 4

x = 400

Write the probability that the letters BR would be the first two letters in a code that is chosen at random.

1/26 for B & 1/26 for R, so multiply them for the total probability

1/26 x 1/26 = 1/676

If there are 3 green marbles and 4 blue marbles in a box, what is the probability that you would pick a blue marble?

4/7

If a student thinks of a number from 1 to 75, what is the probability that the number will be 20, 30, or 40?

Sam made 84% on a science test. The test had 25 questions of equal point value. How many questions did sam miss?

100 total points divided by 25 questions make the questions worth 4 points each.

Sam made 84, so he got 16 points counted off.

16 divided by 4 = 4 questions missed.

A map has a scale 1/2 in. = 60 mi. If two cities are 2 inches apart on the map, how many miles separate the cities?

1/2 / 60 = 2/x

1/2 x = 120

x = 120 x 2

x = 240

Find the distance between two cities on a map if the scale used is 1/2 in = 20 mi. and the cities are 55 miles apart.

1/2 / 20 = x / 55

20x = 27.5

x = 1.375 = 1 3/8 in.

Find the length of the actual object if the scale for the drawing is 1/4 in. = 10 ft. and the scaled side is 7 in.

1/4 / 10 = 7 / x

1/4x = 70

x = 70 x 4

x = 280 ft.

An architect uses the scale 1/2 in. = 1 yd. to make his blueprint for a building. If he draws a line segment 4 1/2 inches long, what actual size does it represent?

1/2in. / 1 yd = 4.5/x

1/2x = 4.5

x = 4.5 x 2

x = 9 yd.
