in this question ALL of the answers should be given IN STANDARD FORM TO ONE DECIMAL PLACE.

a) 1mcubed blood is estimated to contain 5*10(this 5*10 has a little 12 near the 10) white blood cells. how many white bloody cells are there in 1litre of blood.

b) during the operation a patient loses 750cm cubed of blood. using figures you have obtained in part a above, estimate how many white blood cells are lost.

c) the heart beats on average about 72 times per minute. on each beat it pumps out about 75g of blood. how many kilograms of blood does the heart pump out each day?

thnks for helping in advance im really really really bad at maths thanks in advance.

hi please could somone help me im sure im maths dislecsic. please help my maths tutor has given me some questions to answer and i cant seem to get my head around it at all. it might be that im just lazy and that im not really interested in maths but you never know iv tried and tried and tried and i still get the wrong answers can someone please help me!!!
here are some of the questions

1) a bicycle wheel has a diameter of 55cm.

a) how far is it round the wheel (1 d.p)?
b)if the wheel turns 50 times, calculate how far the bicycle has travelled. TO THE NEAREST CM?

2) the accss nursing home has a circular pond in the grounds. the pond is 100 metres acreoss and is surrounded by a narrow concrete part of his recovery program, arthur wants to walk at least 1200 metres each day. how many times (TO THE NEAREST WHOLE NUMBER) should he walk around the pond to ensure that he covers this distance?

3)one method of measuring an irregular path is to use an odometer. this is a wheel attached to the handle by means of which it can be pushed along the irregular path. also attached to the whell is a device which counts the number of times the wheel is turned. one odometer has a 30cm diameter wheel and when pushed along a path through some woods turned 417 times. calculate the length of the path to the nearest metre.

Please could you help me with these i have more but i dont want to bombard you all so ill just try and get the jist of these first thanks from mandytouched

The yearly water bill for a child care centre consists of a standing charge of £18 and a rate of 40p for each unit of water used. i have to draw a graph which could be used to find the cost of water up to a maximum of 250 units. and i have to lable this water board A.

i have to use the graph to answer the following

1)   one year 200 units of water are used.what was the water bill for that year.

2) it is decided that the yearly water bill is to be reduced to a maximum of £80. what is the maximum number of units of water that should be used ?

later in the year, water board B sends some literature for their water costs. they make no standing charge, but instead make a single charge of 60p fpr each unit of water used.

so on that same sheet of graph paper i have to draw a line to show the cost of water from this water board to a mximum of 250 units.
then i have to lable this line water board B

1)at what number of water units do the two lines cross ?

2)how can this number be used to decide which water board to use ?

i have had so many goes at this graph and it is really really anoying me please can someone help me i would be very greatful.

thanks from mandy

                           A=    88Lsquared

calculate the surface area of such an boject if it is 12.5cm long.   I HAVE DO THE ANSER SO THAT IT IS TO THE NEAREST WHOLE NUMBER.


               A=  12.5L SQUARED

i have a couple of question for people of they are willing to help me please,

1) the equations connecting the running cost of a piece of apparatus,R,and the number of times it is used in one month,N, are

    R=(3N + 15)

    N=  8R
         -----    -   5
use these equations to calculate

   a) the value of R when N=27

   b) the value of N when R= 42

   c) the value of R when N=0

this is really getting to me please help thanks to anyone who can yikes)
