everything is correct except #7. it must be 8 1/4 = 33/4 1 3/8 = 11/8 (33/4) / (11/8) 33/4 * 8/11 = 6 hope this helps~ :)

**Calculus**

recall that to get the derivative of 2 functions of x which are multiplied, we do this: d/dx f(x)g(x) = f'(x)g(x) + f(x)g'(x) therefore, d/dx 3x((x+1)^1/2) = 3(x+1)^(1/2) + (3x)*(1/2)*(x+1)^(-1/2) hope this helps~ :)

**math**

let x = number of chicken let y = number of goat let 100 - (x+y) = number of sheep 0.5x + 3.5y + 5[100-(x+y)] = 100 0.5x + 3.5y + 500 - 5x - 5y = 100 -4.5x - 1.5y = -400 9x + 3y = 800 there are actually many possible answers here since you got only 1 equation and 2 unknowns. ...

**Chemistry **

assuming ideal gas, we can use the formula for constant pressure: V1/T1 = V2/T2 where V = volume T = temperature (in Kelvin) note that to convert to Kelvin, K = C + 273 substituting, 39.5 / (25 + 273) = 7.7 / T2 now solve for T2. subtract 273 to convert it to deg C units

**Math**

we subtract the price of magazine from 59.99 to get the total amount of the 3 books: 59.99 - 1.99 = 58.00 (cost of 3 books) thus, we divide this by 3 to get the price of each book: 58.00 / 3 = 19.33 hope this helps~ :)

**math**

recall that speed is distance travelled over time. let x = speed of the other car. then we set-up the equation. when you draw the directions they're travelling, you will form a right triangle. thus recall that in a right triangle, the hypotenuse (in this the the distance ...

**Trigonometry**

sec (π - x) = -sec (x) when we prove, we only manipulate the left side. first, recall that sec (x) = 1/cos x. thus we can replace the the term on the left side of equation by: 1 / cos (π - x) then recall the sum/difference identity for cosine: cos(A−B) = cos A ...

**Math **

to get this, we get the derivative of h(t) with respect to t, and equate it to zero: h(t) = 2 + 28t - 4.9t^2 0 = 28 - 9.8t 9.8t = 28 t = 2.86 s *note that the derivative of a function is the slope of the tangent line at the given point (in this problem, the point referred is ...

**Math**

first we represent the unknowns using variables: let x = length let y = width recall that perimeter of rectangle is just, P = 2x + 2y since P is given (which is 400), we can get an expression of width in terms of length: 400 = 2x + 2y 400 - 2x = 2y y = 200 - x then to get the ...

**Math **

first we solve for hypotenuse: to get the hypotenuse we use pythagorean theorem: c^2 = a^2 + b^2 where c = hypotenuse of the right triangle a and b = legs of right triangle substituting, c^2 = 6^2 + 3^2 c^2 = 36 + 9 c^2 = 45 c = 3*sqrt(5) therefore the perimieter is: P = a + b...
