For the next questions, they are all solved with the same method. So I'll guide you to solving #1, then try solving the others by following these steps. We need to find an equation in the form y = ab^x that passes through the points (1,6) and (2,36). What we'll do is ...

**ALGEBRA 2 (LOGARITHMIC FUNCTIONS)**

I'll solve for the first five problems. You have to recall some laws of exponents for these. (1) 3^(x+1) = 27^(x+3) Note that we can rewrite 27 as power of 3: 27 = 3^3. Thus, 3^(x+1) = (3^3)^(x+3) You can distribute the '3' in 3^3 to (x+3). 3^(x+1) = 3^(3(x+3)) 3^(...

**Algebra 2**

(a) "Z" is distinctly different than the other: I think that means you have to count both of them, as if they're different letters. There are five letters in total. Therefore, 5! = 120 ways (b) "Z" is repeated twice in the word FUZZY. Thus, 5! / 2! = 60...

**math -check**

Yes, all the equations you wrote are correct. :) I don't know what window setting means too, and I don't have a graphing calculator. But I think window setting looks like in table (rows,columns) format? I'm not really sure. ^^;

Yes it's B. This is another example of conditional probability. Note that there are four vowels here: U, I, O, E. And there are six letters total. So, P(vowel) = 4/6 Then you spin again. The probability of getting a P: P(P) = 1/6 Thus, P(vowel, then P) = 4/6 * 1/6 = 4/36...

No it isn't. It was said that time varies inversely as the rate: t = k/r where t = time (hours) r = rate (mph) k = some constant If we solve for the constant, k, k = r*t and this k is the same for all. Therefore if we have two different values for time and rate, r1 * t1 = ...

Mass, m, is varies inversely as acceleration, a: m = k / a where k some constant. since f is the constant of variation, we substitute f for k: m = f / a

**integral**

Well the derivative of sec(x) = sec(x) tan(x) dx, as it's one of the formulas usually memorized. So the integral of sec(x) tan(x) dx = sec(x). But if you want a longer method, we let sec(x) = 1/cos(x) and tan(x) = sin(x) / cos(x). Substituting, ∫ sec(x) tan(x) dx &#...

**Precalculus**

Yeah, you have to draw two different triangles for them. It's easier to solve this if you draw them. Anyway, we let arcsin(8/17) be equal to some angle, A. And we let arctan(4/3) be equal to some angle, B. In your drawing of two triangles, label these angles as A and B. We...

At STP, T = 0 C or 273 K and P = 1 atm or 101.325 kPa. Assuming the gas ideal, we can use the formula: P1 * V1 / T1 = P2 * V2 / T2 where P = pressure V = volume T = absolute temperature (in K) subscripts 1 and 2 = initial and final properties respectively substituting, 103 * 5...

**calculus (steps and explanation plz)**

y'' = 6x Integrate: y' = 3x^2 + c1 Since it was said that it has a horizontal tangent at (1,1), then we let y' (the slope) be equal to 0: 0 = 3x^2 + c1 0 = 3(1)^2 + c1 0 = 3 + c1 c1 = -3 Integrate y' further (and substitute c1 = -3): y' = 3x^2 - 3 y = x...

Raul's appointment started at 9:30 AM according to the problem: Raul - 9:30 AM After 17 minutes, Timothy arrived. That is, at 9:47 AM. But it was said that this time is 8 minutes BEFORE his actual appointment. Therefore, we add 8 minutes to it: Timothy - 9:55 AM Tyson'...

**SCIENTIFIC NOTATION**

What we'll do is divide 1.3 x 10^8 by 8.8 x 10^5: 1.3 x 10^8 / 8.8 x 10^5 We can rewrite 1.3 x 10^8 such that the exponent of 10 is 5. To do this, move the decimal point 3 places to the right. Why 3 places? It's because 8-5 = 3: 1.3 x 10^8 = 1300 x 10^5 Then, 1300 x 10...

**math plz help**

Well it's a conditional probability. You have to multiply the probability of the first event to the probability of the second event for this kind of problem. If the question asked for the probability of choosing a red OR a blue marble, then their probabilities are added. ...

**math plz help**

Total marbles = 43 P(red) = 8 / 43 Since it was replaced, the total number of marbles is the same for the second choosing of marble. P(blue) = 12 / 43 Probability of getting a red, then a blue: 8/43 * 12/43 = 96/1849 (letter D)

**ALGEBRA PLSSSSSS**

To get the inverse, what you'll do is: (1) let f(x)=y, and replace x with y and y with x: f(x) = (8 - 2x)^2 y = (8 - 2x)^2 x = (8 - 2y)^2 (2) solve for y, and substitute back the y=f(x): x = (8 - 2y)^2 sqrt(x) = 8 - 2y sqrt(x) - 8 = -2y y = (sqrt(x) - 8) / (-2) y = (8 - ...
