Tn = a + a+d + a+2d .... + a +(n-1) d T3 = a +2d T8 = a + 7 d so a + 2d = 2 (a+7d) a + 2d = 2 a + 14 d a + 12 d = 0 a = -12 d sum of first 25 = (n/2)[ 2a +(n-1)d ] = (25/2) [ -24 d + (24) d ] LOL !!! = 0

Hey, I told you use completing the square to find the vertex, boring. 2 n^2 - 84 n = - p - 45 n^2 - 42 n = -p/2 - 22.5 n^2 - 42 n + (21)^2 = -p/2 -22.5 + 441 (n-21)^2 = - (p/2 - 418.5) (n-21)^2 = - (1/2) (p - 837) so 21 taxis making 837

-9 x + 10 y = -9 10 y = 9 x - 9 y = (9/10) x - 9/10 slope = 9/10 well, the y axis intercept is y when x = 0 10 y = -9 y = -9/10

That is beyond my pay grade Carol. You need a financial software package. Google "yield to maturity" The semiannually confuses the issue but I am not sure it matters much and perhaps you can use the 6% You have to assume you reinvest the interest. You have to figure ...

distance engineer moved = 500 m = .5 km average speed = (84.2 +16.4)/2 = 50.3 km/hr (during constant acceleration you can use the average of first and last for the distance and time) time = distance/speed = .5km / 50.3 km/hr = .00994 hours * 3600 = 35.8 seconds

P(20) = -2(400) + 84(20) - 45 if you do not know calculus, find vertex of parabola by completing square. I am assuming calculus. 0 = -4 n + 84 n = 21 at maximum so Pmax = -2(21^2) + 84(21) - 45 21, been there, did that -45 when n = 0

what your teacher did was say g =-10 m/s^2 F = m g = m a so a = -10 m^s^2 then v = Vi - g t = Vi - 10 t h = Hi + Vi t - (10/2)t^2 Vi = 20 v = 0 at top = 20 - 10 t so t at top = 2 h at top = 60 + 40 - 20 = 80

wrong, typo
but I think I see the problem you mean H = -5 t^2 + 20 t + 60 when t = 0, the height is 60. That is the height of the cliff if t = 2 h = -5(4) + 20(2) + 60 = -20 +40 + 60 = 80 when dH/dt = 0 or vertical speed is 0 it stops going up 0 = -10 t + 20 t = 2 seconds to top (that is ...

I guess the first term is -4 and the difference is a = 3 Term n = term 1 + (n-1) a Term n = -4 + (n-1) 3 for example Term 3 = -4 + 2(3) = 2 , good, that works so Term n = -4 + (n-1)3 = 74 3(n-1) = 78 n-1 = 26 n = 27

Algebra 1
slope = 4 any other line with slope = 4 will do for the opposite side for example y = 4 x + 53178 then we need two lines perpendicular to those slope = -1/original slope = -1/4 so y = -.25 x + b again any two b values y = -.25 x + 3.14159 and y = -.25 x - 3.14159 or whatever
