d 5 cm wide. The area of the rectangle is 15cm squared. What is the height of the rectangle?
The second question is on another rectangle, the height is a and the width is 3a. The perimeter is 24cm. What is the length of the shortest side.
is Imagine that in the voting for a certain award, 7 points are awarded for first place, 4 points for second, 3 points for third, 2 points for fourth, and 1 point for fifth. Suppose there were five candidates (A, B, C, D, and E) and 47 voters. When the points were tallied, A had 155 points, B had 173 points, C had 170 points, and D had 154 points. Find how many points E had and give the ranking of the candidates. (Hint: Each of the 47 ballots hands out a fixed number of points. Figure out how many, and take it from there.)
