**Math - fractions**

to multiply fractions, just multiply the numerator by numerator, and denominator by denominator. (note: numerator = the number above the fraction bar, while denominator = the number below the fraction bar). thus: 9/16 * 14/15 (9*14) / (16*15) 126 / 240 or 21/40 yd^2 hope this ...

**Algebra**

for the first problem: -a = 5 to get a, you divide both sides of equation by the numerical coefficient (number before the variable) of a. the numerical coefficient of a is -1, thus: -a/(-1) = 5/(-1) a = -5 for problem 2, 3 and 4: do the same procedure as what we did to problem...

you're right. you can do log144/log6 the sign will not be switched.

first you represent the unknown with variable: let x = number of hours you rent the canoe then we set-up the equation. since the rate is $10 per hour, we multiply the number of hours (which is x) by 10 and add the usage fee to get the total amount. thus, 10x + 5 = 45 hope this...

i'm not actually sure about this, but what do you mean "x is the measurement outside the square"? is it the length of the square? because if you have a circle inside a square, you can find right away the area of the whole square using the given radius r. the side...

if K is between JL, then we can say that the sum of the lengths of JK and KL is equal to JL, or JK + KL = JL 6x + 3x = 27 9x = 27 x = 3 KL = 3x = 9 hope this helps~ :)

amount of energy absorbed or released is given by Q = mc*(T2 - T1) where Q = heat (in Joules) m = mass (in grams) c = specific heat capacity (J/g-K) T = temperature (in Celsius or Kelvin) *note that Q is (+) if the object absorbed heat, and (-) if it released heat. for water, ...

recall that for a projectile motion, the maximum height that the object can reach is given by the formula, h,max = [(vo)^2 * sin^2 (θ)]/(2g) where vo = initial velocity θ = angle of release g = acceleration due to gravity = 9.8 m/s^2 the unknown in the problem is vo...

3(x-2)(x+6) since we want to expand this, we can use the FOIL method: multiply the FIRST terms of each expression inside the parenthesis (x and x), OUTER terms (x and 6), INNER terms (-2 and x) and LAST terms (-2 and 6), and we add the products. therefore, 3*(x*x + x*6 + (-2)*...

you can rewrite -27 as -26 16/16 (since 16/16 is just equal to 1). thus, -26 16/16 + 1/16 -26 + (16-1)/16 -26 15/16

x^3 + y^(-2) to evaluate means you substitute the value of x and y which are given in the problem. first, recall some laws of exponents. if a term is raised by a negative number, it is also equal to its reciprocal raised to the that number but positive in sign. for example, 5...
