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

Maths help asap please.

Are you sure you mean sqrt(-9) ??? That is an imaginary number. Maybe you mean sqrt (25-9) = sqrt (16) which is 4 which is a whole number and an integer

US History
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

AVA + .2*10^9 = 2 * AVE T + .6*10^9 = AVA AVA + AVE + T = 6.5*10^9 ============================ do them all in billions well T = AVA - .6 AVE = .5 AVA + .2 so AVA + .5 AVA + .2 + AVA - .6 = 6.5 2.5 AVA = 6.9 take it from there

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

re: Differential Calculus
Just copy your function into there: x^2cos^2y - siny = 0 look at the solution close to (0,0)

Algebra
maybe: same as the probability that one of the numbers you choose is zero probability that first one is zero = 1/6 probability that second one is zero also is 1/6 so sum is 2/6 = 1/3

do the integral 4(x^2+1) dx/x^2and divide by the span which is 3-1 = 2 4 x^2 dx/x^2 + 4 dx/x^2 is 4 x - 4/x = 4 (x-1/x) at 3 = 4(3-1/3) = 32/3 at 1 = 0 so 32/3 divide by 2 16/3
