MATH
2, yes 1/2 3. I guess you want p(red)which is 5/8 4. You have to specify what you want, not imply it. What if the question asked what is the probability CD is ***NOT*** scratched or of NON-fiction

MATH
1. Sam flips two coins. Find probability of 1 head and 1 tail. I think 2/4 or 1/2 ----------------------------- yes, 4 possibilities including h,t and t,h so 2/4 = 1/2

what is theta ?
to convert to rectangular form I need an r and a theta then x = r cos theta and y = r sin theta

Science
I never heard of a glacier flowing uphill :) They certainly do flow downhill to the ocean.

Science
I answered this

Pre-Calculus
r = sqrt (4^2+3^2) which we know is 5 because of 3 4 5 right triangle so we do not need c^2=a^2+b^2 -4 = 5 cos theta cos theta = -4/5 theta = 143 if you use your calculator but that would be wrong because we are in QUADRANT 3 where sin and cos BOTH negative cos^-1 4/5 = 36.9 s...

math
yes, but divisible by 4 means x/4 = whole number 4 is divisible by 2 BUT 2 is NOT divisible by 4

math
1 2 3 4 5 6 the only one divisible by 4 is 4 1/6

sorry, no idea
I never heard of it.

Pre Calculus
r = 3, theta = 0

Pre-Calculus
r cos theta = x = -2.598 = - 3(sqrt3/2) r sin theta = y = +1.5 (-2.6 , 1.5 ) or exact: (-3 sqrt 3 /2 , 3/2 )

Science
Try b If the pressure is high enough, the ice can be pushed uphill or in any direction toward lower pressure. This is not common but happens.

Science
Now wait a minute, where do you think icebergs come from (think Greenland or Alaska or Antarctica). I think c --------------------------------- agree on conservation plowing although I suppose you could also call it recycling. terracing is making various flat levels like stair...

Science
So yes, C

Science
Force times distance in direction of force If not moving in cafeteria line - no work If moving forward in line and weight of tray is down, force not in direction of motion --> NO WORK

Science
NO !! F = m A m is just a scalar Acceleration in the SAME direction as applied net force

History
A for sure B quite a few in Rome, Greek cities, Sicily C not really yet D Yes, after he crossed the Rubicon E. Like C, I think the real trouble was after Julius Caesar and his successor Augustus (Octavian)

Phsyics
rho g h + Pa 1000 kg/m^3 * 9.81 * 66.1 + 101,300 648,441 + 101,300 = 749,741 Pascals 7.50 * 10^5 Pascals two decimal places here only makes sense if using scientific notation

suspect making fun of both, but I have not read the whole thing.

I am not sure about it, like you know

English III
To make fun of the manner of speaking that the writer is criticizing

Where are the limbs out on which we once walked? :)

MATH
1 2 3 4 5 6 primes: 1 3 5 so 3/6 = 1/2 ----------------- 5/6 YES, you got a NOT !!! :) ------------------------- yes -------------- yes

S.S (DAMON)
I think you can come up with answers from the definition of interdependence: http://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/interdependence You mean for countries, but use people or plants or animals as examples.

Physics
density = 1000 kg/m^3 volume = 26 * 32 * 3 = 2496 m^3 so mass = 2.496*10^6 kg so weight = 9.81*mass = 24.486 *10^6 N = 2.45*10^7 N

science motion short answer
position for example would be meters in SI units, but could be inches or leagues or light years and you must specify units or be completely wrong. Actually in SI units your 1 hour to school was 3600 seconds. The point is that you must specify.

science motion short answer
I ran fifty (miles? degrees? millimeters?) I am sure you can come up with two more :)

math
[ -1 +/- sqrt (1 + 72) ] / 2 - 1/2 +/- (1/2) sqrt (73) Hey if a x^2 + b x + c = 0 then x = [ -b +/- sqrt(b^2 - 4 a c) ] / (2a)

MATH
19 20 21 22 23 16 17 18 so 5/8

You found probability that it IS white BUT It asked for the probability that it was NOT white 31/31 - 6/31 = 25/31

S.S (DAMON)

science (check answer?)
I think Aluminum is all metal. My only question would be Germanium which is considered a "semi-metal being a semiconductor. However I really think they are all metals.

math
That is much harder because I can not factor it. Have to use quadratic equation x = [ -1 +/- sqrt (1+16) ]/2 x = -1/2 +/- (1/2)sqrt(17)

math
5 x^2 + 4 x - 1 = 0 (5x-1)(x+1) = 0 x = 1/5 or x = -1

math
yes, that is the way dice is supposed to work.

math
Hey, that word NOT again !!!!!

Which compound is made up of three elements?
H O Ca Cl H N O Na O

math
yes

algebra
6 y = - 4 x + anything y = (-4/6) x + anything else slope = -4/6 = -2/3

math
agree

math
21 + 4 + 12 + 18 = 55 so 4/55 yes

probability that it IS 23 is 1/11 probability that it is NOT is 10/11

Physics
specific heat of fresh water = 4186 J/kgdegC heat in = 4186*100* 20 = 8372,000 Joules = 8372 kJ

Linear Algebra
x-4y=12 and y=1/4x-3 a. one b. two c. infinitely many d. none ------------------------- x - 4 y = 12 x - 4 y = 12 Once again both lines are the same, infinite solutions, a y for every x

Linear Algebra
y=4x+3 and y=4x+4 a. one b. two c. infinitely many d. none ------------------- Those two lines are PARALLEL. They never cross!! No solutions in Euclidean geometry (There are in other systems of geometry)

Linear Algebra
How many solutions does the system of equations have? 2x=-10y+6 and x+5y=3 a. one b. two c. infinitely many d. none ---------------- Those two lines are THE SAME For every x there is a y infinite solutions, no intersection.

S.S (DAMON)
I think so.

S.S (DAMON)
I think so. In number 4, certainly D is a factor but I think B more usual and important.

S.S (DAMON)
I think the rest are ok but Costa Rica has by far the most stable democracy.

S.S (DAMON)
2. NO !!!! B checking the rest 1 os ok

An example of a net force of zero could be a squeeze between your fingers. If you squeezed hard enough I suppose you could split the wood. However I would tend under reasonable conditions to agree with your answer. If it had said a rubber, I would have said you could stretch i...

science
You can add the magnitudes of forces if they are in the same direction. However watch out. You can not just add them if they are not in exactly the same direction.

science
If you have two 5 Newton forces pushing a block to the right, that is a total of 10 Newtons pushing to the right. There may also be a moment due to the forces, but that is not part of the question.

YIKES !!!!

S.S (DAMON)
I have to see what you think first. I will check after lunch.

science one question
The questions are overly simplistic. It is impossible to change velocity at constant speed without acceleration. Even if going around a circle at constant speed, you have centripetal acceleration. In other words if you change direction at constant speed you need acceleration a...

science one question?
You are welcome, hardly a challenge though. Inches are certainly not SI :)

science one question?
SI: meter , kilogram , second so meter is distance unit in SI system We used to call it the MKS system.

I am a naval architect and a little touchy on the subject of the scientific world forgetting about the ocean and its basic importance :)

Plz help me.
By the way, all of this seems to leave the world oceans out. They fix more CO2 out of the atmosphere than anything else with phytoplankton photosynthesis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PI_curve

Plz help me.
1. D yes agree 2. D yes agree 3. C I believe 4. I think A, disagree with you. I am not entirely sure that trees fixing CO2 out of the atmosphere is a comprehensive solution though, but it would help. It certainly hurts to cut forests down and burn them up filling the sky with ...

A chemical bond was broken in separating H2O into hydrogen and Oxygen. New chemical bonds were made between the 2 hydrogen atoms and between the two Oxygen atoms.

science, pls explain this!

The side is (2x+3)? then the area is: (2x+3)(2x+3) = 4 x^2 + 12 x + 9 if x = 6 then Area = 4(36)+12(6)+9 = 144 + 72 + 9 = 225, too big :(
