## Set 5 Part 3

- The scale on the map is 1:
*n*. A square field has an area of 1600 sq. m. is represented by 1 cm^{2}, the value of*n*is: - If five masons can earn P675 in 6 days, how much can 12 carpenters receiving the same rate earn in 10 days?
*Situation.*Two flat belt pulleys have a center to center distance of 137 cm, and diameters of 72 cm and 36 cm, respectively. Neglecting the sagging of belt,

- Compute the length of belt if both pulleys will rotate in the same direction.
- Compute the length of belt if the belt will be cross-connected to make the pulleys rotate in opposite directions.
- Determine the distance of the point from the center of the bigger pulley where the belt will cross when cross-connected.
