Hope this does not come too late to help you. Three consecutive even integers can be represented by n, n + 2, and n + 4. 15 x (n + 4) = 136 + 4 x (n + n + 2) 15n + 60 = 136 + 4 x (2n + 2) 15n + 60 = 136 + 8n + 8 15n + 60 = 8n + 144 15n  8n = 144  60 7n = 84 n = 12 So the three consecutive even integers are 12, 14, and 16. To check: 15 x 16 = 136 + 4 x (12 + 14) 240 = 136 + 4 x 26 240 = 136 + 104 240 = 240

3/(2x + 2) + 4/(x + 1) = 11/12 Then we can say 3/(2(x + 1)) + 4/(x + 1) = 11/12 3/(2(x + 1)) + 8/(2(x + 1)) = 11/12 (3 + 8)/(2(x + 1)) = 11/12 11/(2(x + 1) = 11/12 2(x + 1) = 12 x + 1 = 6 x = 5

hello iim jessie27 can you help me with probability of independent events please

Two events A and B are independent if the occurrence of one does not affect the probability of the occurrence of the other. For instance, the event of obtaining a head on the up face when a fair coin is tossed and the event of obtaining a five on the up face when a fair die is rolled are independent.

for jessie27
Also If the outcome of those effects do not effect eachother in any shape or form, for example the outcome of flipping heads or rolling a six have nothing to do with eachother depending on the problem therefore making them independent of eachother.
