  • Precalculus -

    1.
    y = 10 - x^2
    x = sqrt(10-y)
    domain: y <= 10
    I don't see that as a choice.

    2.
    1/f + 1/j = 15/8
    but f = j+2
    1/(j+2) + 1/j = 15/8
    8(j + j+2) = 15j(j+2)
    16j + 16 = 15j^2 + 30j
    15j^2 + 14j - 16 = 0
    (3j-2)(5j+8) = 0
    j = 2/3
    so, f = 2 2/3
    I don't see that as a choice.

    4.
    The answer is C, not B because 1/(x-2) is not defined.

    5. C correct

    6. D correct

  • Precalculus -

    For number 4, I got this answer after calculating...

    4x/(x-2)=(3x-2)/(x-2)

    4x(x-2)=(3x-2)(x-2)
    4x^2 - 8x = 3x^2 - 6x - 2x + 4
    4x^2-3x^2-8x+6x+2x-4=0
    x^2 - 4 =0

    (x-2)(x+2)=0

    x= 2, -2

    Am I doing something wrong?

  • Precalculus -

    Yes. 2 is not allowed as a solution, since putting it into the original equation gives

    4x/(x-2)=(3x-2)/(x-2)
    48/0 = 10/0

  • Precalculus - PS -

    make that
    4/0 = 10/0
