**Amount of the job done after 2 hours:
**

**2(1/6 + 1/8)
**

**2(4/24 + 3/24)
**

**2(7/24)
**

**7/12 (amount of job finished)
**

**.
**

**amount of job left to do:
**

**1 - 7/12
**

**
**

** **

**12/12 - 7/12
**

**5/12 (remaining)
**

**.
**

**Let x = time (hours) slower press takes to finish job
**

**then
**

**x(1/6) = 5/12
**

**multiplying both sides by 6:
**

**x = 5/12 *6
**

**x = 5/2 hours
**

**or
**

**x = 2 hours and 30 minutes**

**
**

**The slower press (8-hour press), will take h 3 hours, 20 minutes to complete the job**

The scneario here expressed is an aritmetic sequence because it can be explained like this:

<span><span><span>a1</span>=35

</span><span><span>an</span>=<span>a<span>n−1</span></span>+<span>17

So all the variables can fit in and will be better explained than a geometric sequence in which you need a common ratio and that is not needed in this case</span></span></span>

There are six p's, and those six p's have a total sum of thirty six

6p=36

Divide both sides by six to get the value of p

36/6 is 6

p is equal to six

Answer:

Slope is 5/17.

Step-by-step explanation:

Subtract the y's and put on top of a fraction. Subtract the x's and put on the bottom of the fraction. Simplify. Be sure to start with the x and y that go together in front of the minus sign and end with the other x and y behind the minus sign.

7 - 2 put 5 on top.

11 - -6 is 17 (because 11 - -6 is the same as 11+6)

So you get 5/17 and it cannot be simplified so it is your answer.
