A math class has 25 students. There are 13 students who are only in the band, 4 students who are only on the swimming team, and 5 students who are in both groups. How many students are not in either group? I think it's 3 students?

**French**

thank you

**French**

is this correct too? this is what i ended up writing: La matière la plus utile est les sciences.

**French**

In French, how do you say "The ost useful subject is science? I need to know how to say the science part..is it plural, like math, and is it masculine or feminine?

**French**

thanks

**French**

yeah, that's the one! i remember now thanks

**French**

is there another way?

**French**

how do you say "subject" in french? I think there's one way to say it that starts with an m?

**Math**

the ways above is probably easier, but my teacher probably wants me to solve it by factoring..

**Math**

The sides of a square are all increased by 3 cm. The area of the new square s 64 cm^2. How can you find the length of a side of the original square?

**Math**

ok thanks..

**Math**

how do you factor 4x^2-35x-9=0?

**Science**

thank you!

When it's winter in the northern hemisphere, it's summer in the southern hemisphere. So, if it's April in the northern hemisphere, is it still April in the southern hemisphere?

**Science**

If Earth's axis had no tilt, we'd only have spring and fall for seasons, right? But which hemisphere would get the vernal equinox and which would get the autumnal?

**Math**

I don't think there is any factor that can be multipl;ied by 2 to get -7..

**Math**

how do you factor 2c^2-7c=-5? I know that you have to change it to 2c^2-7c+5=0. Then you do this: (2c )(c ). But how do I find the two numbers? I can't think of one that works..

thank you

How can you match a parabola to it's graph? I know that in y=ax^2+bx+c, the a tells you if it opens upwards or downwards, and the c tells you the y-intercept..is there anything else?

**Math**

Never mind, I got it.

**Math**

I'm graphing the parabola f(x)=x^2+2. I'm going to make a table of values, and I'm choosing 5 values. How do I know which value I should choose as my 3rd value so I can make the parabola symmetrical?

**math**

copy and complete input-output table for the function y=2x - 5

**Math**

never mind, i get it, i wasn't supposed to solve any equations at all..

Suppose you buy flour and cornmeal in bulk to make flour tortillas and corn tortillas. Flour costs $1.50/lb. Cornmeal costs $2.50/lb. You want to spend less than $9.50 on flour and cornmeal, and you need at least 4 lb altogether. Write a system of inequalities that describes ...

oh, so it's d. cuz only plants do that..thanks

**science**

I don't know..

**science**

all of the following are life functions of animals except? a. obtaining energy from food b. responding to changes in the environment c. production of new individuals d. synthesizing food from carbon dioxide and water I think it's b.

**science**

what would make it sink halfway down?

**science**

thanks, but can you explain my second question?

**science**

why doesn't density depend on size? If you cut a block in half, and put it in water, wouldn't the density change because I think half a block wouldn't sink all the way in water?

**Math**

i get it..thanks!

**Math**

You have a total of 21 coins, all nickels and dimes. The total value is $1.70. Write and solve a system of equations to find the number of dimes d and the number of nickels n that you have. I already wrote the equations: n+d=21 and 10d+5n=1.70. But I don't know how to ...

thanks

**Science**

for the most of the Jurassic Period, were there coral reefs?

**Science**

there are 6: lever, inclined plane, wheel and axle, screw, wedge, and pulley

**Science**

ok thanks

**Science**

Why two half-lives?

**Math**

why are the two formulas for finding compund interest: B=p(1+r)^x and y=a*b^x acually the same?

**Math**

thanks

**Math**

Suppose your parents deposited $1500 in an account paying 3.5% interest compunded annually(once a year) when you ere born. Find the account balance after 18 years. So how do you plug all this information into this formula: B=p(1+r)^x?

This is a continuation: Hannah's average speed for the remainder of the trip to her cousin's house was 40 miles per hour. How long, in hours, did it take her to drive the remaining difference? I got 33.3 mph by dividing 40 by 1.2, but i'm not sure if i'm right...

If I were to graph 20a+34b is greater than or equal to 240, which would be the easier way: graphing it by finding the x and y intercepts, or graphing it by finding the slope and y-intercept?

**Math**

thank you!

**Math**

if you were to graph x=5, how would it look like? And where can I find an online graphing calculator? and what does it mean in math for something to be undefined? What exactly is x=5? is it a function or something?

**math**

on second thought, it's undefined.

**math**

3.

**Math**

thanks

**Math**

so it's not undefined?

never mind, i got that too.
