So the cars will reflect blue light, but since no blue light is being emitted, they won't look blue? Since yellow light is a combination of red and green light, no blue is involved. One will not be able to see the police cars??? Thank you for your help!! :)!

I am confused as to how light would work in the following question: Some very efficient streetlights contain sodium vapour under high pressure. They produce light that is mainly yellow with some red. Should a community having these lights buy dark blue police cars? Why or why ...

This is probably a really easy question, but I just don't know how to set it up. An object in equilibrium has three forces exerted on it. A 33 N force acts at 90 degrees from the x-axis and a 44 N force acts at 60 degrees. What are the magnitude and direction of the third ...

**Algebra**

You're welcome. If you think about it, it makes since why you got the same answer. The way you did it was right, just not the method they were asking for. There is never just one way to do things in math. :-)

**Algebra**

Both sets of answers are correct. I only wonder if in the second one, you should have used the sq. root property. If you did it that way you would get the exact same answer. I just don't want you to get marked down for not following directions. here's how to do it ...

Alright. I think I might have gotten the answer. Write back and tell me if you think it's right. If you think I messed up, I'll keep trying. First use ln to rearrange the original: 4^(x+4)=5^(2x+5) ln4^(x+4)=ln5^(2x+5) Put the exponents in front because of the ...

Well for one thing, we know f(x) is equal to y. It is the original function. For f(x)=3x^2 -5 We want to find the y value when x=-4 So just plug in -4 for all the x's and get the y value. f(-4)=3(-4)^2-5 f(-4)=3(16)-5 f(-4)=48-5 f(-4)=43 f(-4)=43=the y value at x=-4 So for...

First you have to realize that: square root 12x^3/5 and (12x^3/5)^1/2 are equal! :-) Taking the square root of a value is the same as taking the value to the 1/2 power Use this rearrangement to simplify: (12x^3/5)^1/2 Multipy the exponents... 12x^3/10 I'm pretty sure that...
