Math- consecutive intigers
A student opens a math book to two consecutive pages with a sum of 1640. What are the two pages? I would need one odd number and one even. 819 and 820 are as close as I can come. What am I missing?

What are the pros and cons of completing the square as a way to solve quadradic equations?
February 15, 2008

When a quadratic equation has one solution, there will be one x-intercept; when there are two solutions, there will be two x-intercepts and when the equation has no solution, the graph will have no x-intercepts",is there another way of determining this?

Got it. Thank you

OK. I think I have my head around most of this but for one question. I have plotted a graph with the quadratic equation tickets=-02x^2+12x+11. My graph opens down and shows I will sell tickets for 60 days peaking at the vertex at 30 days where I sell 191 tickets. Now I have to...
February 11, 2008

This is the first step. I will need to answer a series of questions such as a. Does the grapgh of this equation open up or down? How did you determine this? So I will need to graph it.

I need to provide a quadratic equation that models the number of expected tickets sold each day x. (x=1 is the day tickets go one sale). tickets=-0.2x^2+12x+11

That makes sense. So not so much the wieghtof the object but how high above or below sea level the object was. A mile is still 5280 I am guessing so if I have an object in Death Valley is my given example, (its not a even numbered question so I don't have to do it but I ...

Thank you drwls. I was not reading my own question clearly. I am trying to make the equation true for an object that is 100 pounds at sea level. Find the vlaue of C that makes the equation true. wouldn't C, being the contant, be where I put my 100 pounds?

Thank you bobpursley. In question 2, if sea level is 3963 miles from the center of teh earth can I change the equation to figure out the weight of a 100 pound weight at lea level by doing something like this? 100=sqrt C/3963^2 ?

I am still on this weight and elevation question. w=Cr^2 for r= r= quare root c/w Suppose that an object is 100 pounds at sea level. find the vlaue of C tat makes sense. Sea level is 3963 miles from the center of the earth. Wouldn't this be 100=C/(3963)^2 C=(3963)^2x100?
