The chance that the usual language in that household will NOT be English = 0.4

Step-by-step explanation:

As given ,

Total households in which languages spoken is English = 180

Total households in which languages spoken is Spanish = 80

Total households in which languages spoken is other than English or Spanish  = 40

So,

Total households = 180 + 80 + 40 = 300

Now,

Household in which English language is not spoken = 80 + 40 = 120

So,

The chances that the usual language in that household will NOT be English =

∴ we get

The chance that the usual language in that household will NOT be English = 0.4

Speed=Distance/time

Here,

distance=15m

time=1sec

speed=15/1=15m/sec

Distance=Speed*time

time=15min=15*60sec=900sec

Distance travelled in 15 min=15*900=13,500m

=13500/1000 km=13.5Km
