x^2 - y^2 - 2x + 4y - 6 = 0 First, rearrange the terms as such: x^2 - 2x - y^2 + 4y = 6 We can put parenthesis to separate all terms with x from all terms with y. (x^2 - 2x) + (-y^2 + 4y) = 6 Notice that the coefficient of y^2 is negative. We can factor out -1 so we'll ...

Formula for power given the current and voltage: P = IV Substituting, P = 5.0 * 120 P = 600 Watts Note that Watts is also Joules / second. Thus to get the energy, we multiply the power by the time: P = E/t E = Pt E = 600 J/s * 42 s E = 25200 J hope this helps~ `u`

First, we get the boundaries of the arch. The boundaries of the arch has y-coordinate of zero (when it crosses the x-axis), thus, 0 = cos(x/4) cos^-1 (0) = x/4 π/2 = x/4 x = 2π -π/2 = x/4 x = -2π Thus, boundary is from -2π to 2π. Actually, there ...

Well, you use substitution. To do substitution, you choose one of the equations, and express one of the variables in terms of the other. Actually, here, we can see that the first equation (3a = 6-b) can be readily substituted to the second equation (3a = 4-b), because of they ...
