argh. alrighty~ :) (1) 2r - 5s = -12 (2) 5r + 2s = 57 to solve using elimination, you have to multiply a factor into the equation so that when you add/combine them, one of the variables gets eliminated or canceled out,, here, to deal with whole numbers, we multiply equation (1...

**Algebra PLEASE HELP**

(1) 2r - 5s = -12 (2) 5r + 2s = 57 when using substitution method, first you choose an equation (either of the two given) and express one of the variables in term of the other,, in this case we choose the equation (1) and express variable 'r' in terms of 's': 2...

for the first one, convert the mixed number into improper fraction: 10 4/5 = 54/5 *how to do it: multiply the denominator (which is 5) by the whole number (which is 10) then add the numerator (which is 4), thus 5*10 + 4 = 54,, while the denominator is still 5, thus it's 54...

**physics**

i think you mean it's weight (units in N), because mass is constant. anyway, since the weight increased, the elevator accelerates and moves up. :)

**math!!!!!!! help**

the answer was around five because if you look at (15 1/3) * (1/3) we can estimate 15 1/3 to 15 and 15 * 1/3 is 5,, when you look at the answer, 46/9, when converted to mixed number, it's 5 1/9 which is close to 5. so there,, :)

**math!!!!!!! help**

to multiply this, convert first the mixed number into improper fraction, 15 1/3 = 46/3 *how to do it: multiply the denominator (which is 3) by the whole number (which is 15) then add the numerator (which is 1), thus 3*15 + 1 = 46,, while the denominator is still 3, thus it'...

yes, that's right. :) then (42-45)/15 = -3/15 = -1/5

i'm not sure if i get the picture but do you mean, 1/[9^(5/3)] if it is, let's focus on the 9^(5/3). let's make 5/3 into 5* 1/3,, the 5 here means you raise 9 into power of 5, or 9^5,, the 1/3 means "cuberoot" of 9 (thus if it's 1/2, it's "sq...

1 dm = 10 cm ,therefore, 80 dm = 800 cm *just multiply by 10 so there,, :)

**Math 111**

remember the form, y = a(x-h)^2 + k where (h,k) is the vertex, and x and y are points on the graph,, therefore, solving for a, 170 = a*(8-(-1))^2 + 8 170 = a*81 + 8 81a = 162 a = 2 therefore, y = 2(x+1)^2 + 8 expanding this, y = 2x^2 + 4x + 10 so there,, :)

**Math - derivative of f(x) (check)**

yes, your answer is correct. :) i think that simplification means to factor 6x(x^2-1)^2 into 6x[(x-1)^2][(x+1)^2]

**Math - derivative of f(x) (check)**

yes, that's the derivative. did you expand your answer? or how did you do it?

**math**

first, notice that you can group the first two terms, and the last two terms, (2x^3-7x^2)+(4x-14), and factor: (x^2)(2x-7)+2(2x-7) then factor out 2x-7 from both terms, thus: (2x - 7)(x^2 + 2) so there,, :)

first, notice that the first three terms, x^2-12x+36, is a perfect square, and can be factored into (x-6)(x-6),, now rewriting the expression, it becomes: (x-6)^2 - 49y^2 (x-6)^2 - (7y)^2 this looks like difference of two squares,, let a = x-6 and b=7y, thus: a^2 - b^2 (a-b)(a...
