Note that rate is distance traveled over time, or r = d/t If you have walked 1 mile from 6:00 to 7:30 (that's 1.5 hours, right?), then your average rate is r = 1 mile / 1.5 hours r = 2/3 mph This is your average rate. And we assume this as constant. If we make a linear ...

**Differential Equation**

(ye^xy + 1)dx + (xe^xy + 2)dy = 0 Check for exactness: Let M = ye^xy + 1 Let N = xe^xy + 2 ∂M / ∂y = ∂N / ∂x ∂(ye^xy + 1) / ∂y = ∂(xe^xy + 2) / ∂x Use chain rule to get the derivative: e^xy + xy e^xy = e^xy + xy e^xy Thus it is ...

Let x = salary Let (x-3000)/5 = cost of shoes Therefore, total salary minus his costs is the 2/5 of his salary left: x - 3000 - (x-3000)/5 = (2/5)x [ x - 3000 - (x-3000)/5 = (2/5)x ] * 5 5x - 15000 - x + 3000 = 2x 2x - 12000 = 0 2x = 12000 x = 6000 hope this helps~ `u`

The equation for this relationship is a linear equation (I even used linear regression to prove it lol). To get the linear equation, we can look for the slope first. m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1) where (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) are points on the line. Taking two points, for instance, (0...

Note that the process involved here is the phase change of ice, from solid (ice) to liquid (water). Thus, the heat involved is latent heat, not sensible heat. The latent heat of fusion of ice is approximately 334 J/g. You can look for this value in textbooks or google. Then we...
