Now why would a state stay in the Union even if some of its residents had slaves? Maybe some of them did not have slaves and disagreed with the others?

**Algebra 1**

y = x (-.04 x + 8.3) when is y = 0 at the start of course but also when .04 x = 8.3 or x = 207.5 meters I think you left a significant figure out :)

I bet you mean [ f(x) - f(a) ] / (x-a) Parentheses are VITAL ! f(a) = -2 a^2 + 5 a - 1 so [ -2(x^2-a^2) +5(x-a) -1+1 ]/(x-a) = [-2(x-a)(x+a) + 5(x-a) ]/(x-a) = -2(x+a)+5 Note for future calculus purposes that the limit of this as a approaches a this becomes -4 x + 5

y dy = x dx y^2/2 = x^2/2 + c or y^2 = x^2 + c (-3)^2 = 0 + c so c = 9 y^2 = x^2 + 9 y = +/- (x^2+9)^(1/2) since only y = -3 is given I think your answer correct
