The first one: x-number of 60 second comercials (12-x)-number of 30 second comercials 60x + 30(12-x)=600(6 minute=600 seconds) 60x+360-30x=600 30x = 240 X=8 He played 8 long ones. 12-8=4, he played 4 short comercials. the second one: G:B=5:3 5x - 3 = 3x + 3 2x = 6 X = 3 5×3=15 3×3=9 15 girls, 9 boys. Uh, what a party. I hope this helps you.

A rectangle's length is 3 more than its width 1. Write an expression for the rectangle's dimensions. ANSWER: L = W + 3 (L=length, W=width) 2. Write an expression for the area of the rectangle. ANSWER: A = L*W = (W + 3)*W = W^2 + 3W (A=area, L=length, W=width) A rectangle's length is 5 less than twice its width. 1. Write an expression for the rectangle's dimensions. ANSWER: L = 2W - 5 (L=length, W=width) 2. Write an expression for the area of the rectangle. ANSWER: A = L*W = (2W - 5)*W = 2W^2 - 5W (A=area, L=length, W=width) Phelim
1. u gotta make two equations for this one. Let the 30 sec commercials be x, and the 60 sec commercials be y. ok then, we can see that the first equation wud be x + y = 12 secondly, 30x + 60y = 600 (because 10 minutes = 600 seconds) now, when u solve the above equations: u get x = 4 = no. of 30-sec commercials y = 8 = no. of 60-sec commercials 2. Equation time again. Suppose girls are G, and boys B. G/B = 5/3 (simple, right) and B+3 = G-3 by solving the above 2 equations, u get B = 9 = no. of boys G = 15 = no. of girls dont i deserve a thank-u for this ?! :)

There are 600 seconds in ten mins. (60*10=600) So you divide 600by 30 thats gives ya 20 times, divide 600 by 60 that gives you 10. Sooo 10 60 sec commercials or 20 30 sec commercials

8 60 second commercials = 480 seconds, and 4 30 second commercials=120 seconds 12 commercials = 600 seconds or exactly 10 minutes. There were 15 girls and 9 Boys.

y + 2 = -x/4 + 1 Finally, [y + 2 = -x/4 + 1]-4 -4y - 8 = x - 4 -8 = x + 4y - 4 x + 4y = -4 I hope this helps!
