User: The airport parking lot charges different rates for different lengths of time. One hour in short term parking is $5.00; additional hours are $3.00. Any car parked longer than 24 hours is charged $10.00 an hour for any amount of time exceeding 1 day. How much would a person be charged for parking in short term parking for 32 hours?

Weegy: 5 for one hour, plus 3 for 23 hours, plus 10 for 8 hours so... 3 x 23 + 10 x 8 + 5 = 69 + 80 + 5 = 149 + 5 = 154 $154 source: yahoo

User: A family is moving and has a number of electronic devices in the same packing crate. One of the devices beeps every 8 minutes, another device beeps every 10 minutes, and a third device beeps every 12 minutes. If all the devices beeped together at 3:00 pm, what time will it be when they all beep together next

Weegy: If they beep together at 3 pm, the next time they will all beep together is 8 x 10 x 12 minutes, or 960 minutes, or 16 hours, so that would be 12 hours later plus 4 hours, so that would be 7 AM. source: yahoo

User: ur firefighters were discussing the number of fires they extinguished for the month of February. Rafael extinguished 25% fewer fires than Louis in February. William extinguished 50% more fires than Rafael. Albert extinguished 20% fewer fires than Rafael and William combined. If Louis extinguished 6 fires per week, how many fires did all four men extinguish during the entire month?

Weegy: Louis extinguished 6 fires per week, and since there are 4 weeks in February, [ Louis extinguished 24 in February. Rafael extinguished 25% less than Louis = (3/4) * 24 = 18. William extinguished 50% more than Rafael = (3/2) * 18 = 27. Albert extinguished 20% less than Rafael and William combined = (4/5) * (18 + 27) = (4/5) * 45 = 36. So, altogether they extinguished 24 + 18 + 27 + 36 = 105 fires in February. source: yahoo ]
