⅖ths is larger than 2/7ths because when changing the fraction to a common denominator, in this case 35, we get 14/35ths and 10/35ths respectively.

4/10ths is larger than 3/8ths, I found this by finding the common denominator of 80 and changing the fractions accordingly to get 32/80 and 30/80 respectively.

When comparing 6/11 and ⅗ we find the ⅗ is larger when we find the common denominator. The common denominator is 55, we get 30/55 and 33/55 respectively, showing that ⅗ is larger than 6/11.

I multiplied ¾ by 2 to get 6/8, to make it visually easy to find the larger fraction between ¾ and ⅝. We see that ¾ is larger.

By multiplying 4 by 2 we get 8, which makes it a common numerator with 8/15, we get 4/7 as 8/14 and can now compare it to 8/15. Since we know that 1 unit cut into 14 equal sizes pieces will produce larger pieces than 1 unit cut into 15 equal size pieces, 4/7 has to be the larger fraction.

Common Denominator

To find the common denominator of ⅘ and 9/10 we need to multiply ⅘ by 2, making it 8/10. Now that the two fractions have the same denominator we can now compare the two fractions. We can think of each fraction as 1 unit cut into ten equal size pieces. In one unit we would shade 8 of the 10 pieces to represent 8/10 and we would shade 9 out of the 10 pieces on the other unit, because we can see that the second unit has 9 out of the 10 pieces shaded we know that 9/10 is the larger fraction.

Benchmark

7/13 and 11/23 are best compared through the benchmarking strategy. We are going to use ½ as our benchmark for these two fractions. First we need to divide each of the denominators by 2 to get 6.5 and 11.5 respectively. As we can see 7 is greater than 6.5, this means that 7/13 will be to the right of ½ on a number line. 11 is less than 11.5 meaning 11/23 will be to the left of ½ on a number line. We know that the number furthest to the right on a number line is the larger number, so 7/13 is the greater

This was an increase of 117% and 353% respectively. The baseline mean arterial pressure (MAP) was 88.3 mmHg. With the introduction of mild exercise, the MAP reduced by 8.66 mmHg to 79.67 mmHg. Moderate exercise had the highest MAP at 99 mmHg, which was an increase of 10.67 mmHg from the baseline MAP.

2977 Words | 12 PagesAll the inscribed angles in each of the circles are equal (inscribed angles on the same chord law) and these sets of equal angles decrease with an increase in size of the circle (exterior angle theorem for a triangle). For example, angle AFB = angle ACB and angle ADB>AGB. Consequently, the optimal position would be found where the conversion line forms a tangent with one of the circles as it provides the largest angle along the conversion line (line TF) than any other point. This is shown in Figure 4

## Bess Bug Lab Report

1131 Words | 5 PagesThe bessbug was able to carry 6 weights which has the mass of 18.85 grams, while ten times the mass of a bessbug is 17.6 grams. The maximum amount of weights the bessbug was able to pull was 10 weights which is equal to 31.46 grams. The data shows the strength of the bessbug and how much the bessbug is able to carry in all. The data occurred because the capacity of the bessbug allows the bessbug to carry 10 weights. The data supports the hypothesis because the bessbug was able to lift ten times the weight of the bessbug which is 17.6 grams, and much more because the total amount the bessbug was able to pull was 31.46 grams.

## Psychoanalytic Theory Of 16PF

1348 Words | 6 PagesFor the 16PF primary scales, test–retest reliabilities average 0.80 over a two-week interval (ranging from 0.69 to 0.87), and 0.70 over a two-month interval (ranging from 0.56 to 0.79). The five global scales of the 16PF Questionnaire show even higher test–retest reliabilities (they have more items); they average 0.87 for a two week interval (ranging from 0.84 to 0.91), and 0.78 for a two-month interval (ranging from 0.70 to 0.82). One important source of validity for the 16PF Questionnaire has been factor-analytic studies of the structure of the primary and global traits across diverse samples of people. These studies have used exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis to confirm the number, identity, and independence of the primary factors; and to confirm the number, identity, and primary factor make-up of the global factors. There are numerous applications for 16PF and it is useful in the following settings: • Career Choices • Counselling and correctional

Beginning with the total number of colonies in each dilution, this number was divided by 0.1. Then the number found from the division explained previously was then multiplied by 10 to the power of n, where n was the number in the dilution set. For example: dilution 4 would solved using the answer to the division problem and multiplying by 10 to the 4th power.

Juzlova et al (1996) described that amino acid addition in growth medium of Monascus lead to increase red pigment production than other pigment. Metal ions additions showed a great effect on Monascus both growth and red pigment production (Fig. 10).

Although, Portugal has an absolute advantage, which means it requires less resources on both goods, it is better to produce the wine only and exchange it to the cloth from England, since England has comparative advantage in the cloth: if it uses 100 labor for the cloth, it loses 5/6

## The Chi-Square Test

882 Words | 4 PagesIn this example, two dies are open to differ whereas the third die is not. For that reason, degree of freedom is equal to 2. For data with one category: Degree of freedom = number of observations -1 For data with more than one category represented in a table: Degrees of freedom = (number of rows in the table) – 1 X (number of columns in the table) -1 The chi-square test is used to determine whether two variables are independent or not. If two variables are dependent on each other, their values have a tendency to progress together, either in the opposite direction or in the same. Example Consider a data set of 100 individuals divided into categories of Male, Female and university admission (Yes/No).

## Omar Khayyam: A Brief Biography

848 Words | 4 PagesBased on making 8 of every 33 years leap years, it was more accurate than the present Gregorian calendar, and it was adopted in 1075 by Malik-Shāh. Khayyam found that 1,029,983 days made 2,820 years. This gives a tropical year length of 365.2422 days to seven significant figures. Although it has become fashionable to quote more decimal places than this, Khayyam’s input of 1,029,983 days contains seven significant figures, so it is unreasonable to quote more than this number of significant figures in the calculated year length. Today we know that the length of a tropical year actually changes by as much as 30 minutes from year to year.
