    What is the formula for finding the volume of a cube?

    • A.

      2x*x

    • B.

      E^3

    • C.

      Fish

    • D.

      2*x=3x(3+4)

    Correct Answer
    B. E^3
    Explanation
    The formula for finding the volume of a cube is E^3. The letter "E" represents the length of one side of the cube. To calculate the volume, you need to raise the length of one side to the power of 3, which means multiplying it by itself three times. This formula is derived from the fact that all sides of a cube are equal in length, so multiplying the length of one side by itself three times gives you the total volume of the cube.

    Solve  -x + 3(2x+5) = 100

    • A.

      19

    • B.

      17

    • C.

      16

    • D.

      12

    Correct Answer
    B. 17
    Explanation
    To solve the equation, we need to simplify the left side first. Distributing the 3 to the terms inside the parentheses, we get -x + 6x + 15 = 100. Combining like terms, we have 5x + 15 = 100. Next, we isolate the variable by subtracting 15 from both sides, yielding 5x = 85. Finally, we divide both sides by 5 to solve for x, giving us x = 17. Therefore, the correct answer is 17.
