I think that the semicolon (;) should be deleted in your line: if (a == b) System.out.println(a*b);

**Intro to computers**

You are correct!

**Math**

The first equation has y=10-2.2x Substituting that value for y into the second equation: 5x + (10-2.2x)=70 5x + 10-2.2x=70 combining... 2.8x=60 x=? Plug that value for x into the first equation to find y.

*January 4, 2015*

**Algebra 1**

When you multiplied the second equation by 2 your result is wrong. It should be: 6x + 12y=52 NOT: 6x-12y=52

**Math**

Looks good!

*December 14, 2011*

**trig**

You have the right idea. one revolution is 2(pi) radians. Converting revolutions to radians: R=revolutions Revolutions in Radians=R*2(pi) So, to convert 2.8 revolutions/sec to radians =2.8(2)(pi)/sec

**precalculus**

With the values given, I did not find any of the answers on the graph. For a distance vs time graph. X axis is time and Y axis is distance. at t=6s, dist=5m at t=8s, dist=6m at t=10s, dist=7m at t=12s, dist=8m I don't see any of those as choices.

For a distance vs time graph. X axis is time and Y axis is distance. at t=6s, dist=5m at t=8s, dist=6m at t=10s, dist=7m at t=12s, dist=8m I don't see any of those as choices.

*December 3, 2011*

**precalculus**

Problem 1 A is not the answer. f(4)- f(1) =11 - (-1) = +12 -------------- Problem 3. C looks correct

**precalculus**

Problem 2. The answer is not B, (x=0).

*December 3, 2011*

**precalculus**

Problem 1. The answer is NOT D. The average rate of change is: for x=1, f(1)=-3 for x=4, f(4)=-3 Average rate of change is 0, not a negative number. One of the answers does give a negative average rate of change.

**MATh please help**

Let D = the number of dimes. So, D + 9 = the number of nickels. Adding... D * 10 + (D + 9) * 5=135 combining 15 * D + 45 = 135 15 * D = 90 Divide both sides by 15 D = 6 There are six dimes. So, the number of nickels is 6 + 9 = 15

The best way to check is to substitute your answer back into the equation. SQRT(2x+1)-5=8 SQRT( (2*84)+1)-5=8 SQRT(168+1)-5=8 SQRT(169)-5=8 13 - 5 = 8 8 = 8 You are correct!

**Physics for Engineers**

Check part b comments on your previous post.

*September 14, 2011*

**Physics**

Using that... Y=14.47m/s(2.2s)-(1/2)(9.8m/s)(2.2)^2 Y=31.834m - 23.716m =8.118m So it clears the wall by 8.118m - 6.7m =1.418m

**Physics**

I get 14.47m/s for Vy.

*September 14, 2011*

**Physics**

I calculated the ball was thrown at a speed of 18.12m/s. Vx is 24m/2.2s=10.91m/s Vx=V(cos(53)) That gives V as 18.12m/s

**Algebra**

Change the 31% to a decimal value. Then multiply both sides of the equation by Q. Then get all the Q terms on one side and the number terms on the other side. Combine the terms and solve for Q.

Yes, that is correct. I would really encourage you to carry the units through from start to finish. It seems like extra work, but it can help detect errors.

Add 4 to both sides. Then, square both sides. Does that help?

My error I just reread that the first 1/2 hour is included. I am quite sure that the it is $30 for each additional 1/2 hour the equation is: Let H = the number of HALF HOURS $200 = $50 + (H-1))$30 similarly $150 = (H-1)*$30 5 = H=1 adding 1 to each side: H= 6 This is the ...

*February 21, 2011*

**Algebra 2**

I think there is some confusion here. Let H = the total hours $200 = $50 + (H-1)*$30 Remember that the first hour is included in the $50. subtract $50 from both sides $150 = (H-1)*$30 divide both sides by $30 5 = H -1 add 1 to both sides: H = ??

**Algebra B**

You are very welcome.

**Algebra B**

You're welcome, but I am not sure what you mean by reverse FOIL. First terms: x and x Outer terms: x and -5/4 Inner terms: -5/4 and x Last terms : -5/4 and -5/4 I just want to be sure you have a good understanding about the order.

*February 16, 2011*

**Algebra B**

OK, (x-5/4)^2 = (x-5/4)(x-5/4) multiplying (remember FOIL--first, outer, inner, last) = x^2 -(5/4)(x) - (5/4)(x) + (5/4)^2 = x^2 - (10/4)(x) + (5^2)/(4^2) = x^2 -(5/2)(x) + (25)/(16) Does that help?

Be careful of units. You expressed the runway length in m (meters), but the takeoff speed is expressed in mi/h (miles/hour). You will need to do some units conversion.
