we just substitute the value of x for x + h : f(x) = x^2 - 2 f(x+h) = (x+h)^2 - 2 if we want to expand it, f(x+h) = x^2 + 2xh + h^2 - 2 hope this helps~ :)

3/4 or 75% of the people were students. thus, 100 - 75 = 25% of the people were parents (moms & dads) of these, there are 3 dads to 4 moms. Note that the total is 3 + 4 = 7 parents. We can say that 4/7 or 57.14% of the parents are moms. 25% of this is the percent mom: (25% * ...

(a) log(base10) of 8 log(base10) of 8 can be rewritten as = log(base10) of (2^3) = 3*[ log(base10) of 2 ] = 3*0.301 = 0.903 (b) log(base10) of 12 log(base10) of 12 can be rewritten as = log(base10) of (2*2*3) = log(base10) of 2 + log(base10) of 2 + log(base10) of 3 = 0.301 + 0...

**math**

Two ways: (1) Plot y = 3x - 5 and check if it passes through the point (4,7). (2) Substitute the x-coordinate of the point given (which is 4) to the equation, and solve for y. If the resulting y is equal to 7, it is a solution to the equation. Let's do #2 to check: y = 3x...

6 1/2 - 4 7/10 first, we convert this to improper fraction (numerator is greater than denominator). We do this be multiplying the whole number to the denominator then add to the numerator: (6*2 + 1)/2 - (4*10 + 7)/10 (12 + 1)/2 - (40 + 7)/10 13/2 - 47/10 Then, we find the ...

For an ideal gas, (P1*V1)/(T1) = (P2*V2)/(T2) where P1, V1 and T1 are the pressure, volume and temp at initial conditions, and P2, V2 and T2 are the final conditions Substituting, (104*2.5)/270 = (95*5.3)/(T2) now solve for T2.
