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 ...

-5x/7 - 2 > -1 Solve for x like a normal equation: -5x/7 > -1 + 2 -5x/7 > 1 -5x > 7 -x > 7/5 Now, when you multiply both sides by a negative number (in this case, it's -1), the inequality sign changes to opposite: x < -7/5 x < -1.4 Or if that's not...

For a general reaction, aA + bB ---> cC the equilibrium constant, Kc, is given by Kc = [products] / [reactants] = (C)^c / ( (A)^a * (B)^b ) The reaction given is: 2 NH3 ---> N2 + 3 H2 Thus, Kc = (N2) * (H2)^3 / (NH3)^2 Plug in the concentration values given, and solve ...

The chemical formula of aspirin is C9H8O4. The molecular weight of aspirin is therefore 180 g/mol. To get the grams of aspirin in the problem, just multiply the moles given by the molecular weight (to cancel units). Hope this helps~ `u`

Represent the unknowns. Since the ratio of their money shared is 5 (David) : 2(John), Let 5x = David's money Let 2x = John's money In the problem, John received \$30 less than David. Thus, 2x = 5x - 30 Solving, 2x - 5x = -30 -3x = -30 x = 10 Thus, 5x = \$50 (David) 2x...

Since the equation is already given, we just plug in the values. It was said in the problem that the reaction should proceed 8 times faster than the original at 315 K. Thus the ratio k2/k1 = 8. R is the universal gas constant = 8.314 J/mol-K All temperatures must be absolute (...

Definitely it isn't a noble gas since noble gas are stable and unreactive. They can still form compounds with other elements though. Group 15 is also group 5A (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, etc.), and Group 17 is also group 7A (Fluorine, chlorine, etc.). Elements in these groups ...

Algebra
I think you mean x^3 - 6x^2 + 8x for the equation written in the problem. No, the answer you got isn't quite right. The first factoring is correct though. To factor x^3 - 6x^2 + 8x, the first obvious factor here is x, since all terms in the expression contain x. Thus, x(x^...

No, it isn't. In a geometric sequence, there is a fixed number multiplied by a term to get the next term. This is an example of geometric sequence: 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, ... Here, we can see that each term is multiplied by two to get the next term. 3*2 = 6 ; 6*2 = 12, and so ...

I just assume you want to convert the 275 liters to mL units. To convert, note that 1 L = 1000 mL. Thus to cancel units, 275 L * (1000 mL / L) = 275000 mL hope that helps? ^^;

f(x) = x^2 + 2x - 9 This is a quadratic equation. There are plenty of ways to get its maximum/minimum. One way is to graph and locate on the graph the point where max/min occurs. Another is to solve for its vertex. We can transform the equation into the form f(x) = a(x-h)^2 + ...

Recall that molarity is moles of solute per liter of solution. It has mol/L (or M) units. M = n/V First, we convert the volume (100 mL) to liters units. To convert, we just divide it by 1000: 100 / 1000 = 0.1 L Since we need to calculate the moles, we rearrange the formula to ...
