9 3/4 = 39/4 39/4 / 3/4 = 39/4 * 4/3 = 39/3 = 13

**TIP MATH!**

well Ms Sue used the fact that 15% is halfway between 10% and 20% I used a tenth plus half of a tenth. same difference :)

**TIP MATH!**

10% + 5% = 15% 2.3 + half of that 2.3 + 1.2 = 3.50 ps the accurate answer is 3.49

The y intercept is where x = 0 so -12,000 is correct The x axis intercepts are when y, the profit, = 0 that is when x = 2 and z = 15 correct the 15 is from 6000 - 400 x = 0 x = 60/4 x = 15

**calc**

so displacement is zero and distance is 5.33 + 15.75 + 10.42 = 31.5 check my arithmetic !!!!

**calc REPAIR of displacement**

v = t^3 - 10 t^2 + 27 t - 18 integral = t^4/4-10t^3/3 +27t^2/2 -18t at 7 integral = -7.58 at 1 integral = -7.58 so displacement = 0

I do not think slaves were in Rhode Island before about 1700 so I agree with you. Pilgrims landed in Plymouth MA in 1620 and settlement of RI was thus later than that. I have my doubts about timing in SC as well.

**physics typo?**

Vi = 47 m/s d = 50 =============== v = Vi + a t 0 = 47 + a t a t = -47 or a = -47/t =============== d = Vi t + .5 a t^2 50 = 47 t + .5 a t^2 50 = 47 t +.5(-47/t)t^2 50 = 47 t - .5*47 t 50 = .5*47 t t = 100/47 then a = -47/(100/47)= -22 m/s^2 > twice gravity I think maybe ...

The Spanish certainly DID find gold. They became the most powerful country in Europe for a while due to their riches from the New World. So I agree with you.

**Math algebra**

I have a hunch you mean f(x)= (x-2)/(x^2-81) which is (x-2)/ [ (x-9)(x+9) ] it is zero if the numerator is zero so when x = 2 it is undefined when the denominator is zero x = 9 or x = -9

Get it?

**ANOTHER TRIANGLE MATH PROB!**

I said 12, and 12 is an option

**ANOTHER TRIANGLE MATH PROB!**

Now maybe you need to do this a more official way to really get it 21/24 = 10.5/x we want to get the 24 and the x out of the bottom so multiply both sides by 24 x 24 x (21/24) = 24 x (10.5/x) 21 x = 24 * 10.5 x = 24 * (10.5/21) x = 24 * (.5) x = 12

**ANOTHER TRIANGLE MATH PROB!**

21/24 = 10.5/x well 10.5 is half of 21 and we all know 12 is half of 24 so 10.5/12
