Q:
# A grasshopper covered a distance of 5 yards in 9 equal hops. How many yards did the grasshopper travel on each hop?a. Draw a picture to support your work.b. How many yards did the grasshopper travel after hopping twice?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:a)5/9 yards=0.556yardsb)10/9 yards=1.11 yardsStep-by-step explanation:for the part a To solve this exercise we must divide the total distance traveled by the grasshopper (5 yards) by the number of jumps that were made (9).[tex]d=\frac{5}{9}[/tex]
if you use the calculator you will realize that the value is 0.55yardsfor the part b
knowing the distance traveled in a jump, we multiply this value by two to find out how much is the distance traveled in 2 jumps[tex]d=\frac{2x5}{9} =\frac{10}{9}[/tex]
if you use the calculator you will realize that the value is 1.11 yards
