Need to know how to set up this word problem: the water consumption was 4 percent higher in 2005 than it was in 2004. If the water consumption for 2005 was 9,740 cubic feet, what was the consumption in 2004. (pls. show work)

Ok - the math is like this:

9740 = (y x 1.04)
Dividing both sides of the equal sign by 1.04 leaves:
9740 / 1.04 = y
Which equals
y = 9365.38

Check by multiplying 9365.38 by 104% (1.04 decimal) and you get 9740.

I hope that helped!

Can my 1999 Cadillac Seville concourse overheat by mixing too much water with antifreeze??

Theoretically yes. Antifreeze has a higher heat capacity than water. Basically, a liter of antifreeze can hold more heat than a liter of water. I dont think it would be enough to cause an overheat though

I'm going to buy a new motherboard...... i found two interesting motherboards Msi x79 Bigbang xpower2 and msi z97x gaming 5 wich one is better and wich cpu should i take i7 4930k or i7 4790k !!!

I'm a MSI guy myself. I would go with the Z97. As for the processors, I would save the extra \$150 to \$200 and get the 4790k. Plenty of power, and you save some money on it. Use the left overs to purchase a good set of ram. Intel Core i7 4930K vs 4790K

Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required Higher clock speed 4 GHz vs 3.4 GHz Around 20% higher clock speed Higher turbo clock speed 4.4 GHz vs 3.9 GHz Around 15% higher turbo clock speed Lower typical power consumption 71.5W vs 105.63W More than 30% lower typical power consumption Better PassMark (Single core) score 2,535 vs 1,995 More than 25% better PassMark (Single core) score Better cinebench r10 32Bit 1-core score 8,785 vs 6,903 More than 25% better cinebench r10 32Bit 1-core score Higher Maximum Operating Temperature 74.04 °C vs 66.8 °C More than 10% higher Maximum Operating Temperature Better performance per dollar 4.97 pt/\$ vs 3.93 pt/\$ More than 25% better performance per dollar Newer Apr, 2014 vs Jul, 2013 Release date 9 months later Lower annual commercial energy cost 77.09 \$/year vs 113.88 \$/year More than 30% lower annual commercial energy cost Lower annual home energy cost 21.2 \$/year vs 31.32 \$/year More than 30% lower annual home energy cost

On my 02 eldorado running tall tires at 65mph rpm is 1750. what mpg can i expect

you might get there but I doubt it as the digger diameter wheels takes more power to turn so the throttle will be opened wider even though the rpm's are lower.

I have a problem with the consumption of fuel in my fx35 2005

fuel consumption higher driving in the city because you are stopping and accelerating causing more fuel get car in motion.to help fuel consumption problem some, replace air filter,keep check on tire pressure.low tire pressure will cause fuel consumption.

Hi, We have a 3phase Hobart D300 Mixer onboard and the cooks are complaining that there is not enough grunt. I have checked the 3 speeds and they are working finee however when dough is being mixed it...

Hello Veelec,

As the machine is mixing dough it seems that it is getting sluggish. This is caused by the machine being over loaded. Although it is a 30 qt mixer that is for liquid filled capacity. I do not know what kind of dough you are mixing so I will give you a light to medium dough and then the heavy dough capacity. Also on this machine all dough should be mixed in speed 1 or low to keep from damaging the machine.

You will need to know the Absorption Rate (AR) of you dough, to find this you take the weight of the water divide the weight of the water and multiply by 100.

AR = Water Weight / Flour Weight x 100%

The higher the percent the higher the capacity the lower the percent the lower the capacity. Also the temperature of the water will have to be considered as the colder the water the harder the dough it is to mix the dough the batch should be reduced by 15% to 20% for water temperature between 65-75 degrees.

For a Light to Medium dough with a 60% AR the unit capacity is 45 pounds in first speed.
For a Heavy dough at 55% the units capacity is 30 pounds in first speed.

The above capacities are for bread doughs, if you are doing pizza dough, dough nut dough or wheat dough please post back to this thread and I will help you to find the capacities.

I hope that I have helped you with your problem and would like to thank you for using FixYa to find a solution to your problem.

Smoking at higher rpms

Hi, its time for a ring set job in this vehicle. the blue smoke is a sign of major oil consumption due to bad piston rings. you also have faulty valve seals as well. this is deep engine repair and it will be costly.

If you cant do this job soon, be sure to watch the oil consumption by checking the level regularly and, monitor the oil pressure as well.

No ice or water at door.

Hello,
Welcome to fixya.

You said, you can shut off the water and remove the filter container pour the water out and reinstall the container. Open the water line again and the water will flow for about three full 10 ounce glasses and then stop. Then it will not flow again at all, although you continue to press the flapper as it is set for water through the door. You said, you can repeat the above sequence and get the same results, water for a short while and then stopping again.

First you need to try the water filter and leave it out!
Now see if it works. If so the filter is bad.

Remember that if the dispenser paddle is pushed for more than 4 minutes,
the dispenser motor may overload and stop.
The overload protector will automatically reset in 3 to 4 minutes..
if the problem continues you will need a tech hands on to diagnose the problem.

How old is the fridge?

Here is an interesting report I just read!

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay \$100 to \$200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
