I'll solve one, and will let you try the others as exercise. x=(4/5)(x+10) multiply by (5/4) on both sides: 5x/4 = x+10 subtract x from each side 5x/4-x =10 x/4=10 x=40 Check: (4/5)(x+10)=(4/5)(40+10)=40=x ok.

First 30km with a speed of 30km/h means it took 1 hour. For an average of 40km/h over 60 km, total time = 60/40 = 1.5 hours. Time left for 30 km = 1.5-1 = 0.5 h. Can you calculate the speed needed for the second half of the journey?

math
If the roots of a quadratic equation are equal, that means the discriminant equals zero, or b²-4ac=0 (for ax²+bx+c=0) So expand the expression and see if you can factorize the result to suit the conditions.

Physics
For the velocity, equation PE and KE. PE=KE mgh = (1/2)mv² and solve for v. (both g and h are negative, y is positive upwards) For time, use y=vi*t+(1/2)at² for vi=0, equation simplifies to y=(1/2)at² (Notice that both y and g are negative)

PHYSICS
Resolve forces into x,y components. Let the x-components of forces be f1,f2 then f1+f2=332 f1-f2=122 Solving f1=(332+122)/2=227 f2=(332-122)/2=105 Assuming θ=0 (in direction of raft) so the forces are 227 and 105N

If you plot the graph, it will be a parabola concave up, with a zero at x=0, or x=4. Therefore f(x)≤0 when x∈[0,4). The correct answer would be S={x|x∈(-∞,0]∪[4,+∞)}

Assuming garden has uniform width w. 2*60*50=(50+w)(60+w) => w²+110w-3000=0 w=22.62 or -132.62 (rejected) So wall is 22.62 m from the house.

physics
In the case of uniform acceleration, distance = average speed * time distance = 0.04m average velocity = (350+210)/2 m/s = 280 m/s Time = distance / average speed = 0.04/280 s = 1.43*10-.4 s

For maximum height, equate PE and KE mgh=(1/2)mv² h=(1/2)37.1²/9.8=70.2 m at 50m, KE is reduced by mgh => (1/2)mv²=(1/2)m(37.1)²-mg(50) v=sqrt((37.1²-2(g)(50)) =19.9 m/s

Since gravity on the moon is about 1/6th of that on earth, the mercury column would be 6 times higher for the same air pressure. However, the atmosphere on the moon is about 10^13 time rarer than that on earth, the height of the mercury column is practically nil on the moon.

math
If the shapes are similar, area increase as the square of the ratio of the lengths. In this case, the shape remains the same, so old area = d*n new area = (1.1d)(1.1n) = (1.1)² dn = (1.1)² old area Percentage increase in area = 1.1²-1 = 21%
