Integral (2x^2-4x-6)dx from 0 to 1 = (2/3)x^3 - 2x^2 - 6x from 0 to 1 = (2/3)(1)^3 - 2(1)^2 - 6(1) - ((2/3)(0)^3 - 2(0)^2 - 6(0)) = 2/3 - 2 - 6 - (0 - 0 - 0) = 2/3 - 8 = 2/3 - 24/3 = -22/3 Hope this helps :3

1. You have to just multiply them, because it says 20% of those 50 students got milk, so 50 * 0.2 = 10 students 2. Yep 3. Yep 4. Yep 5. [Unit ratio] What we'll do here is to get the cost per oz. Thus we divide $1 by 3.6 oz and $2.50 by 11.5 oz, then compare. $1/3.6 = $0....

Let x = son's age Let 38-x = Mr. Bellini's age (since the sum of their ages must be equal to 38) Set up the equation using the the second statement: (38 - x) - 4 = 5(x - 4) Solving, 34 - x = 5x - 20 34 + 20 = 6x 54 = 6x x = 9 years old (son's age) 38-x = 29 years ...

**Calculus**

y = log(8x^2-3x+9) Note that derivative of log(x) = 1/(x*ln(10)) Thus, dy/dx = ( 1/(8x^2-3x+9)*ln(10) ) * (16x - 3) = (16x - 3) / ((8x^2 - 3x + 9)*ln(10)) Hope this helps~ :3

**Calculus**

f(x) = ax^n f'(x) = a*n*x^(n-1) Substitute the given conditions. f'(3) = a*n*(3)^(n-1) 14 = a*n*(3)^(n-1) f'(6) = a*n*(6)^(n-1) 28 = a*n*(6)^(n-1) We can solve this since there are two equations, two unknowns. From the first equation, we can say that a = 14 / n*(3...

**Calculus**

y = cos^4(pi*t-20) Note that the derivative of cos(x) = -sin(x) and the derivative of x^n = n*x^(n-1). We'll apply them here, and we'll also use chain rule. dy/dt = 4 * pi * cos^3 (pi*t - 20) * (-sin (pi*t - 20)) Hope this helps~ :3

**algebra**

Hi. I answered you previous post and it was almost similar, except that here, the roots must be complex/imaginary so D must be less than zero. Anyway, Recall the formula for discriminant. For a quadratic equation in the general form, ax^2 + bx + c = 0, D = b^2 - 4ac if D = 0...

Recall the formula for discriminant. For a quadratic equation in the general form, ax^2 + bx + c = 0, D = b^2 - 4ac if D = 0 : real, equal/double root D > 0 : two real, unequal roots D < 0 : two imaginary roots Since we're required to have one real root, we equate D ...

integral (sec u) du This is pretty tricky, but what we'll do here is multiply both numerator and denominator by (sec u + tan u): = integral (sec u * (sec u + tan u)/(sec u + tan u)) du = integral (sec^2 (u) + sec(u)*tan(u))/(sec u + tan u)) du Then we use substitution. Let...
