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

algebra
(-1 -(-1) ) /(-3-6) = 0/-9 = 0 so the slope is zero (of course) it is the line y = -1

I forgot to mention that the 30 year pays more per year than the 10 year because in the 30 years inflation may make the income worth much less.

finance
Of course as you can see, wealthy people often do not spell well.

Well, one of the characteristics of the market is that some people will buy each of them depending on what their priorities are. A retiree with wishes for a very safe income stream might choose the 30 year treasury. A young person who is willing to take a risk for higher retur...

yearly income versus safety versus inflation. Why do you think Greece is paying 5 times as much as France? Why do you think a 30 year bond pays more per year than a ten year bond from the same treasury ?(usually) Why do you think an inflation indexed bond might pay negative in...

I agree. in #7 motion is kinetic and position is potential (for example k x^2 or mgh) so together is total mechanical

Algebra 2
(5,10),(10,7)= y=(5/3)x-(17/3) m = (7-10)/(10-5) = -3/5 so your m = 5/3 y = (5/3) x + b x --> 15/2 y --> 17/2 so through (15/2 , 17/2) 17/2 = (5/3)(15/2) + b so 17/2 = 25/2 + b b = - 8/2 = -4 y = (5/3) x - 4 agree with your second answer this time

Algebra 2
(1,4),(6,-6)= y=(1/2)x-(3/4) m = (-6 -4)/(6-1) = -10/5 = -2 so your m = +1/2 check x ---> (1+6)/2 = 7/2 y ---> (4-6)/2 = -1 so (7/2 , 1) 1 = (1/2)(7/2) + b 4/4 = 7/4 + b b = -3/4 y = (1/2) x - 3/4 I like your first answer

Algebra 2
Perhaps I am not being clear. There is no reason the original pair of points would be on the perpendicular bisector of the line between them. In fact they better not be there.

Algebra 2
(-5,6),(1,8)= y=-3x+1 m = (8-6)/1+5) = 2/6 = 1/3 so yes, your slope is -3 y = -3 x + b now midpoint x --> (-5 + 1)/2 = -2 y --> (6+8)/2 = 7 so yes the middle is at (-2 , 7) 7 = -3(-2) + b 7 = 6 + b b = 1 so yes y = -3 x + 1 THe original points are NOT on the bisector.
