The farmers got caught in a cycle of debt because it says they did not have capital to buy land and therefore I suspect they had to borrow.

LOL !!! This is a trick question. You know the answer. It is exactly the same as throwing a ball straight up. It takes just as long to go up (0 = Vi - g t) so t = Vi/g h = Vi t - (1/2) g t^2 as it takes to go down 0 = h - (1/2) g t^2 = Vi t - (1/2) g t^2 - (1/2) g t^2 t = Vi...

C = 9000 + 21 x yes Revenue = R = 49 x P = 49 x - 21 x - 9000 so P = 28 x - 9000 now for some reason they did not asdk how ma tires must be sold to break even but it would be P = 0 28 x = 9000 x = 9000/28

Your notation is extremely awkward. We normally write x to a power as x^power like x^3 is x cubed Now I will do it your way but you have errors starting with the sign in the first line x(2x squared-x-3)+ 1(2x squared-x-3) should be x(2x squared-x-3) - 1(2x squared-x-3) then x*...

when you have more than one term in a numerator or denominator, put a parenthesis around them a + b/c is just that , a alone plus b/c but (a+b) / c is a+b ----- c or a/c + b/c

Go with my original reply then. I had a hunch that was the case because both 24 and 15 were divisible by 3.

**Math 221**

ok if you really mean that. I had a hunch it looked like 24x^5-15x^4 ------------ 3x^2 but if you really mean 24 x^5 - (15 x^4/3 x^2) then 24 x^5 - 5 x^2
*August 4, 2014*

**Math 221**

Be careful with numerators and denominators and parentheses What you wrote is 24x^5- (15x^4/3x^2) but I bet what you mean is (24x^5-15x^4)/3x^2 which is 24x^5/3x^2 - 15x^4/3x^2 or 8 x^3 - 5 x^2
