It's not clear what the measurements are. It looks like they mean the handles are 6 feet from the wheel.   I'm not going to give you the answer, but you can figure out the torque (or moment-arm) by multiplying force times distance to get foot-pounds.  360 pounds placed 1 foot from...

Jay and Madalina are correct. :-)   Let me add that the key to this and any other rate problem is UNITS. Keep your units straight, and they will point you in the direction of multiplying or dividing.   For example 35 parts in one hour can be written (the second ratio is...

Solving (usually GRAPHING) systems of inequalities rests upon other skills, the two most important are solving (and graphing) linear inequalities, and solving (and graphing) systems of equations.   So you'll have great trouble with systems of inequalities if you haven't mastered "systems"...

This is a trick question.   If you aren't told what the expected probability of her free-throws is, there's no way to tell.   For example, if you flip a fair coin 3 times and it comes up heads all three times, that has no effect on the next flip. It's not "more likely"...

The equation y= -4x + 1 is in the "slope-intercept" form of y=mx+b, where m is the slope (rise over run), and b is the y-intercept (where the line will cross the vertical y-axis).   You need graph paper for an accurate graph (but it's possible to do it on notebook...
