Hey Amy, any fraction is equal to one when the denominator and numerator are the same number.

""Those who believe that there is widely scattered evidence of 'modern' behavior going back 200,000 years in Africa will be delighted that modern human anatomy also goes back that far," said John Fleagle, a physical anthropologist at Stony Brook ...

physics help
Hey again Stan, hmm, okay, I'll keep playing with it, I still say we're missing info though... but re-post in the meantime, so other tutors don't think I've answered.

Hey Stan, is that a direct copy/paste? Ie that's all your were given word for word? Hoi.. I think my Physics is rusty.

A point of intersection is when the two equations equal each other. So set: log(x-2) = 1 - log(x+1) Then solve for x. Does that help, or are the logarithms themselves giving you trouble?

Chemistry
Hey Michael, A) For the first step you want to take the reactants from both the slow and fast steps and put them on the left of the arrow. And put all four products on the right side. Then cancel out anything that appears on both (Ex: NO2) Then make sure all your elements are ...

Okay, so your question is saying "At Least -6" Meaning you can't go any lower than -6, therefore x must be greater than or equal to -6. Second the question is saying "At Most 3". So x is smaller than or equal to 3. Right away you can eliminate c. Then ...

Looks like your copy/paste didn't work so well, some of those should probably be "Greater than or equal to (>=)" or "Smaller than and equal to (<=)". Repost?

Calculus
Hi Brittany, you're going to need a split function, one where t <= 0.35 and one where t > 0.35. a) When t <= 0.35 The information you have is: when t = 0, the quantity will also be zero. When t = 0.35 the quantity will be 0.3. Seems like this will be a linear ...

math
Scientific notation is when there is only one digit before the decimal, for example 314 can become 3.14 x 10^2 Use a positive power if the decimal should move to the right, negative if it should move to the left.

geometry
Two angles are complimentary if they add up to 90 degrees. So you can say that: (14q + 8) + (8q - 6) = 90 You can then rearrange the equation to solve for q. Then sub q back into the individual equations to calculate the angles.

The formula for the surface area of a right circular cylinder is; SA = 2*pi*r*h + 2*pi*r^2

The circumference of a circle is defined as: C = 2piR Remember that a diameter is twice the radius, so make sure to divide 10 by 2.

What would make a slope undefined? A slope is defined as the change in y over the change in x. (Or vice versa). Hint: Anything divided by zero is undefined.

geometry
The perimeter of a square is four times the length of a side, so if we let x be the length of a side you can set up two formulas. Let's set P to be the perimeter. So P = 4x (by definition) and P = 7x - 12 Now you can use these two formulas to calculate x, by setting them ...

I think there is a typo in your question. "She has to check in 2 h and 35 min". Is it she has to check in 2 hours early and it takes 35 minutes to get to the airport? If so, you want to add up all the time for travel and chit chat. So 2 hours + 35 minutes + 45 ...

Yup, the circumference of a circle with radius r has the formula C = 2piR

Hi there! What you want to do is start with 22.25, then add any amount that Megan receives, and subtract any amount she spends. The number you end up with is your answer :)

Hey Stephanie.. if I'm understanding correctly there's a typo, and you actually meant 'w and z are positive constants'? a) Hint: Look at a picture of a cosine graph and see what value of '14*pi*w*t' maximizes the value b) Hint: When is 2zcos(14piwt) ...

Linear Algebra
Hey Linus, First step: simplify where you can. For example, equation 3 can be divided by 5, so you end up with (x3) + 2(x4) + 3(x6) = 1. Equation 4 can also be simplified. This will make the algebra later a little easier. Second step: Pick an x (x1 seems to be a good one) to ...

Joshua, it's always easiest to draw yourself a graph so you can understand the question. a) Set y as cat years, and x as human years. You should have a straight line when you're finished, on a diagonal. Any idea what the slope means now? b) Determine your slope using ...

Hey there! Speed is defined as distance in metres, over time in seconds. So if a hare ran 40 metres in 2 seconds he would have a speed of 40/2 = 20m/s

There's no one formula for maximum acceleration, it depends on the situation (velocity, type of motion etc). What is the full problem? Maybe I can help then.

Math
Oh! Okay, well anything to the negative power is equal to the reciprocal to the same positive power. Therefore; (x^-4*y^2/x^-2*y^-4)^-3 = (x^-2*y^-4/x^-4*y^2)^3 You can then multiply each exponent within the brackets by 3. And simplify your numerator and denominator from there...

Where are you stuck Ethan? Show me what you have so far and I'll point you in the right direction. Hint: Draw a graph for yourself, designate the x axis as miles and the y as dollars. So when x is 300 what is y? And when x is 600 what is y? This might help you understand ...

Hint: It takes the same amount of time to go up, as it does down, so use 2.5 as t. And your only acceleration will be gravity acting downwards. Figure out a, and vi, then put them into one of your kinetic formulas and you should get your answer.
