This will be a multiple post thing so please bear with me. If my answers are wrong then please explain I'll post my work as needed thanks. 1)Identify the y-intercept and the axis of symemetry for the graph of f(x)=-3x^2+6x+12. answer=12:x=1 2)Determine whether f(x)=-5x^2-...

State the possible number of imaginary zeros of g(x)= x^4+3x^3+7x^2-6x-13 this is how far Ive gotten:there are 4 zeros,3 positive and 1 negative If you've found four real zeroes, then there are no imaginary zeroes. You can also see that there are no imaginary zeroes ...

Why does an ice cube melt @ room temperature? The melting point of water is zero degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). Room temperature is more like 20 degrees C or 68 degrees F. Therefore, heat is tranferred from the warmer room air to the colder ice cube and it melts.

why is a burn from steam potentially more serios than a burn from very hot water? Water at boiling temperature has a specific heat of 1 calorie per gram. Steam, however, at the same temperature, has a heat of vaporization of 540 calories/gram. Thefore, steam condenses and ...
