Bacterial Growth – Page No. 360

Bacteria are tiny, one-celled organisms that live almost everywhere on Earth. Although some bacteria cause disease, other bacteria are helpful to humans, other animals, and plants. For example, bacteria are needed to make yogurt and many types of cheese.

Under ideal conditions, a certain type of bacterium cell grows larger and then splits into 2 “daughter” cells. After 20 minutes, the daughter cells split, resulting in 4 cells. This splitting can happen again and again as long as conditions remain ideal.

Complete the table.

________ yards

Answer: 41 yards

Explanation:
First, we have to calculate the perimeter of the 1st triangle.
Given:
a = 33 yards
b = 56 yards
c = 65 yards
P1 = a + b + c
P1 = 33 + 56 + 65 = 154 yards
Now we have to calculate the perimeter of 2nd triangle.
Given:
a = 26 yards
b = 49 yards
c = 38 yards
P2 = a + b + c
P2 = 26 + 49 + 38 = 113 yards
Now we have to calculate which triangle has greater perimeter and how much greater.
P1 – P2 = 154 yards – 113 yards = 41 yards
Therefore, 41 yards greater is the perimeter of the 1st triangular field than the perimeter of the 2nd triangular field.
