To make the trip there and back home, it's 77 miles x 2, so total Lori is going to have to drive 154 miles. To find out how many gallons she'll need, divide 154 miles by 28 mpg. Soooo she'll need 5.5 gallons EXACTLY to make the roundtrip.

Can someone please explain to me how to use the stock naming system when naming chemical/ionic compounds? I reeeeaaaally do not get it. Here's some examples: 1. CaCO3 ==> I know the answer is calcium carbonate, but how is it that answer? 2. FeSO4 ==> The answer is fe...

The distributive property means you DISTRIBUTE a number/variable to other numbers in a set of parentheses. So, in this example, you would distribute a to b, c, and d to get this: a => b a => c a => d ab + ac + ad

Isolate the variable x onto one side of the equation: 6-2x = 6x-10x+14 -2x = 6x-10x+8 (subtract 6 from both sides) -2x = -4x+8 (add 6x and -10x) 2x = 8 (add 4x to both sides) x = 4 (divide each side by 2)

Zeros are also "x = ..." statements, so x = -2 + i, x = -2 - i, etc... Since you need REAL coefficients in the polynomial, change the x = -2 + i and x = -2 - i statements to "clean" polynomials, like this: x = -2 + i x + 2 = i (square each side to get rid o...

All you have to do here is isolate the variable x on one side of the equation. Soooo start with substraction, like this: Ax + Hy = L Ax = L - Hy Now, to get rid of the coefficient A to isolate just the variable x, you have to divide both sides by A. (since A is technically mul...

You're very close. However, you solved the equation like this: a^2 + b^2 = c 5^2 + 2^2 = c 25 + 4 = c 29 = c I think you forgot to mess with c^2: a^2 + b^2 = c^2 a^2 + 2^2 = 29^2 a^2 + 4 = 841 (once you subtract 4 from 841, you must take the square root of both sides) a^2 ...

Math
You solve for a using a^2 + b^2 = c^2 because it is the unknown value. I'm not exactly sure if that was what you were asking..

Does c=29? If so, use the Pythagorean Theorem and solve for a. a^2 + b^2 = c^2 a^2 + 2^2 = 29^2 a^2 + 4 = 841 ...

algebra
It gives you the value of x, so substitute that value into the first equation, like this: x + 3y = 2 x = 9 - 3y 9 - 3y + 3y = 2 9 = 2 Somehow, you get 9 = 2, which is DEFINITELY not correct, so maybe there was a typo in typing out the question?

algebra
All of the denominators in the equation have a common factor 4, so multiply both sides of the equation by that. 4( 5/2x + 1/4x = 5/4 + x ) 10x + x = 5 + 4x Bring the variables to one side of the equation and all the constants to the other side and solve for x.
