**algebra**

Good ! You are welcome.

**algebra**

no, look below carefully 3.2*10^2 LY ( 5.88*10^12 mi/LY) = 18.8 * 10^14 mi = 1.88 * 10^15 mi

**easy algebra question, check answer**

yes 3*10^1 * 3*10^5 = 9*10^6 because x^a * x^b = x^(a+b)

Since I do not know what it looks like. You can not copy and paste here.

Well, I would have picked A, although I would put it much more strongly. The Soviet Union effectively took absolute control of countries like Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, East Germany ..... Google "Winston Churchill Iron Curtain speech"

dR/dx = 1500 - 3000*2/(2x+3)^2 if x = 150 dR/dx = 1500 - 6000/303^2 = $1499.93 per unit the point is that you have an initial 1000 setup cost then it is $1500 per unit but that decreases as the number goes up and you train robots

luckily a right triangle with legs of 3 and 4 has a hypotenuse of 5 so there is no need to use c^2 = a^2 + b^2 to get the magnitude. The cosine of the angle south of west is 3/5 so the angle is 53.13 degrees south of west which is 180 + 53.13 degrees counterclockwise from the ...
