**History**

B is nonsense. Native Americans did not work out as slaves even here in America. They revolted or died. That is why the European creeps started importing slaves from Africa.

well, I write that line under as >/= or </= It does not change your approach and is just like an equal sign. If it is there, leave it there in your answer. </= is leas than or equal >/= is greater than or equal

multiply both sides by 1/2 n > 7 multiply both sides by 5 n > 55 NOW if you multiply both sides by a NEGATIVE number, you turn the arrow around and shoot the other way. multiply by -1/3 and reverse direction y > 6

**math**

e^ix= cos x + i sin x so what we have here is 2 cos pi/4 + 2 i sin pi/4 conjugate is 2 cos pi/4 - 2 i sin pi/4 but cos pi/4 = .5 sqrt 2 and sin pi/4 = .5 sqrt 2 so sqrt 2 - i sqrt 2

What is the product of (–6.8)2? a. –13.6 b. 46.24*** c. –46.24 d. 13.6 ============================= Notation???? what you wrote was (-6.8)(2) which is -13.6 , a. (not d) if you meant to type (-6.8)^2 that is (-6.8)(-6.8) = 46.24
