    Okay, you see s=d/t. we know Jason's doing 5km/h, and Raj' 25km/h, so its 5=d/t, we want x to be the distance, so its 5=x/t, if we know t it become t=x/5. (i really hope this makes sense, im hopeless at explaining!), so anyway, we do the same for Raj, let it equal the time we know- which is 6minutes, then solve it-
    1. x/5 - x/25= 1/10. its 1/10 because, its 6minutes, so 6/60(one hour).
    2. then- times both sides by 25.
    3. which gives us- 5x-x=2.5
    4x=2.5
    x=2.5/4
    x=0.625km, so 625m
    Got it .. THANKS!!!!!

    Ok for that question
    you had to find the area of the rectangular drive:
    550*400 = 220, 000

    Then you find the area of each brick:
    10*20 = 200

    And then finally you divide the area of the drive by the area of the brick:
    220,000/200 = 1100 A.K.A Answer B

    Did that help??

    This question is annoying me - I'm probably missing out something simple !
    Please can somebody be the light at the end of the dark tunnel that is question 19.

    19 On the island of Skilly tax is paid as follows:
    No tax on the first $5000 of income, then10% on the next $10000 plus 25% on the remainder.
    How much tax is paid on an annual income of $45000?
    A $4500
    B $8500
    C $9000
    D $11250
    E $12750

    The answer is B
    The question is HOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

    D $11250
    E $12750

    The answer is B
    The question is HOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
    45000-5000 = 40000 taxable income.

    1000 for the first 10000 ie. 10%
    7500 for the rest i.e. 25% of 30000

    total tax = 8500

    = B



    Having done my accounting exams this morning it'd be lovely if questions like this came up. doubt it though.

    The answer is B
    The question is HOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
    it works like this:

    5000 - no tax
    10000 - 10% (10000*0.1=1000)

    the remainder (45000-5000-10000=30000) - 25% (30000*0.25=7500)

    7500+1000=8500

    hm not really concise layout but u get what i mean?
