since it's already factored, you can equate each factor to zero and solve for x. 2x - 3 = 0 2x = 3 x = 3/2 x - 5 = 0 x = 5 4x + 7 = 0 4x = -7 x = -7/4 note that there are three values of x. hope this helps~ :)

first represent unknowns with variables. let x = games that they tied let x+1 = games that they lost let (x+1)+2 = games that they won then we set-up the equation. since the total games is 12, x + x+1 + (x+1)+2 = 12 x + x + 1 + x + 3 = 12 3x + 4 = 12 3x = 8 x = 8/3 = 2.67 ...

recall that speed is distance travelled over time. thus we calculate the speed of each. let's also make sure that the units of speed for both are the same. Car: (convert first the units) 240 km * (1000 m /1 km) = 240000 m 2 hr * (3600 s / 1 hr) = 7200 s v = d/t v = 240000/...

i think you forgot to include here the time given. because speed is distance travelled over time, but the only given here is the distance.

recall the form, y - y1 = m(x - x1) where m = slope (x1 , y1) = point on the line substituting, y - (-2) = (2/3)*(x - 5) y + 2 = (2/3)x - 10/3 y = (2/3)x - 10/3 - 2 y = (2/3)x - 10/3 - 6/3 y = (2/3)x - 16/3 *the slope-intercept form is in the form y = mx + b. hope this helps~ :)

**Chemistry**

(a) to get the weight/volume percent, we just divide the mass of the compound to the volume, and multiply by 100: 25 g / 1000 mL * 100 = 2.5 % w/v (b) recall that molarity is moles of solute per liter of solution. thus first get the number of moles of the compound by dividing ...

cos (theta) = -0.25 theta = cos^-1 (-0.25) there are two answers: theta = 104.48 degrees = 3.65 radians and, theta = -104.48 degrees = -3.65 radians hope this helps~ :)

(9m+2)(m-3) to multiply this, use FOIL method: F = multiply first terms (9m & m) O = multiply outer terms (9m & -3) I = multiply inner terms (2 & m) L = multiply last terms (2 & -3) then add all the products. therefore, 9m * m = 9m^2 9m * -3 = -27m 2 * m = 2m 2 * -3 = -6 9m^2...

**algebra**

y = (-7/4)x - 1 since the points given will satisfy the given equation, we just substitute the value of x-coordinate to variable x in the equation to get y: for x = -4, y = (-7/4)*(-4) - 1 y = 7 - 1 = 6 thus the first point is (-4,6) for x = 0, y = (-7/4)*0 - 1 y = -1 thus the...

first, represent unknowns with variables. let x = measure of angle 2 let 4x-5 = measure of angle 1 (according to the first statement of problem) then set-up the equation. since the angles form a linear pair, their sum must be equal to 180. thus, x + 4x - 5 = 180 5x = 180 + 5 ...

first we write the balanced chemical reaction: C + 2 H2 -> CH4 *note that Hydrogen is diatomic in nature (that's why it's H2, not H) then to get how much H2 reacted (in grams), we use the data of Carbon. 1 g of Carbon reacted, thus to get the number of moles of C, ...
