Games are random processes. All we can say is that if he wins, he gets one point, and if he loses, he loses one point. We also know (or believe) that the probability of winning or losing is each 50%. The actual outcomes depends naturally on chance. But in the long run, the ...

**Algebra 2**

Find probability of numbers matching (2/4) and not matching (2/4). Construct table for A: Outcome value,x P(outcome) x.P(x) Win..... +1 ...... 0.5 ....... 0.5 Lose.....-1 ...... -0.5 .......-0.5 Sum(x.P(x))=0, so game is fair.

Let K=[HI]²/([H2][I2]) The given reaction is in equilibrium at 430°C, if K=Kc=54.3 Substitute given concentrations to get K=[HI]²/([H2][I2]) =0.5²/(1*1) =0.25 < 54.3 Therefore the reaction is not in equilibrium and will proceed in the forward direction ...

**Algebra**

Divide each term of the numerator by 2m^3: -6m^9/(2m^3) = -3m^6 -6m^8/(2m^3) = -3m^5 -16m^6/(2m^3) = -8m^3 Choose your answer accordingly.

**Precalculus**

Yes, the square bracket means the value is included in the interval, and ( or ) means excluded. There are other notations where ( or ) is replaced by a square bracket pointing outwards, for example, [0,2π) is the same as [0,2π[ To solve the above problem: cos^2x=2+2sinx ...
