another problem for checking - algebra
P dollars is invested at annual interest rate r for 1 year. If the interest is compounded semiannually, then the polynomial P(q + r/2)^2 represents the value of the investment after 1 year. Rewrite w/o parenthesis and eval if P= \$200 and r = 10% P(1 + r/2)^2 200(1 + r/0.10/2)^...

The length of a rectangular swimming pool is 2x-1 meters, and the width is x + 2 meters. Write a polynomial that represents the area. Find the area if x is 5 meters. (2(5)-1) (5+2) (10-1) (9* 7) 63 My answer is 63. Do you agree?

Where does the 1.8x come from? Can you break that down?

substitution
Please take me through this one problem and I think I can use this as a guide to tackle the others... Solve by the addition method, indicate if it is independent, inconsistent, or dependent x+3(y-1)=11 2(x-y)+8y=28 multiply out and get each into the form of ax + by = c. then p...

Suppose most business executives expect a slowdown in the economy. How might this situation effect the economy? What would these expectations do to inventory ordering, hiring, and making loans, or investing in new machinery?

Algebra question
When you solve a system of equations by the substitution method, how do you determine whether the system of equations is dependent? If your variables disappear as you simplify, and you end up with 0=0 (or k=k) the system is dependent. (really just the same line, one equation i...

I have the problem halfway solved
-9/7x + 8 < -4x - 5 -9/7x + 4x + 8 , -4x + 4x - 5 -9/7x + 4x +8 < -5 The book then has 19/7x + 8 < - 5 I know how to solve this but I am lacking or trying to remeber how they got 19/7 - need a refresher Convert the "x" terms to common denominators 4 x - (9/7...
