**Math - Algebra2**

f(x)=3x+2 , g(x)=3/x^2+2 , h(x)=sqrt(x-2) (f∘g)(-5) to me means: f (g(x) ) so f(g(5)): g(-5) = 3/27 = 1/9 f(1/9) = 3(1/9) + 2 = 1/3 + 2 = 5/3 (f∘g)(-5) = 5/3 so the others the same way

**Precalculus**

w = -i - 2j describes the vector (-1,-2) so it the same way I showed you in the similar problem of unit length. YOu can do it in your head to get (-1/√5 , -2/√5)

**Algebra**

for any quadratic of the form y = ax^2 + bx + c the x of the vertex is -b/(2a) so for yours ... x of the vertex is -184/(-32) = 5.75 so it took 5.75 seconds, plug that into your original function to find the maximum height.

**Pre calculus**

correct notice you can check that the magnitude is 1 magnitude = √( (1/√2)^2 + (-1/√2)^2 ) =√( 1/2 + 1/2) = √1 = 1

**Pre calculus**

for any unit vector in the direction of (a,b) .... find the length of the vector = √(a^2+b^2) now divide each component by that magnitude to get (a/√(a^2+b^2) , b/√(a^2+b^2) or you could write it as (1/√(a^2+b^2) (a,b) apply this to your vector, let me ...

multiply each term by 2x(x+1) 6x - 2(x+1) = x(x+1) 6x - 2x - 2 = x^2 + x x^2 +3x + 2 = 0 (x-1)(x-3) = 0 x = 1 or x = 3

it would be a combination of the chain rule and the product rule, doing it as a single power the way I did it was easier as a product rule - chain rule for that term ..... x√x = x x^(1/2) derivative: x (1/2) x^(-1/2) + (1)x^(1/2) = x/(2√x) + √x = x/(2√x...

yes, of course, silly me, the exponent on the last one was 3/2

**Calculus1**

I would rewrite as h(x) = 3x^(1/2) - x^(3/2) h ' (x) = (3/2) x^(-1/2) - (2/3) x^(1/2) = 3/(2√x) - (2/3) √x

**Algebra**

it will hit the ground when the height h(t) = 0 -16t^2 + 144 = 0 16t^2 = 144 t^2 = 144/16 = 9 so t =√9 = 3 after 3 seconds

PS-3PQ = (-10,4) - 3(2,5) = (-10,4) + (-6,-15) = (-16,-11) magnitude is √((-16)^2 + (-11)^2) = √377

**Algebra**

since you want the height horizontally from the starting height, and that height was 5.4 metres, -.06x^2 + 9.6x + 5.4 = 5.4 the 5.4 drops out, so x(-.06x + 9.6) = 0 x = 0 , the starting time or x = 9.6/.06 = 160 it will land after 160 m

**Geometry**

let the chord AB = 2x then the diameter = 2x+2 or the radius = x+1 This allows me to draw a right-angled triangle with sides x and 9 and hypotenuse x+1 (x+1)^2 = x^2 + 9^2 x^2 + 2x + 1 = x^2 + 81 2x = 80 x = 40 AB = 80 check: diameter = 82 is 41^2 = 40^2 + 9^2 ? LS = 1681 RS...

rowing speed in still water ---- x mph speed of current ------------- 2 mph time to go 50 miles with the current = 50/(x+2) time to go 25 miles against current = 25/(x-2) the two times are the same, so ... 50/(x+2) = 25/(x-2) 50x - 100 = 25x + 50 25x = 150 x = 6 speed in still...

**calculus**

let the two equal width be x let the single side by y xy = 600 y = 600/x cost = 20y + 30x = 20(600/x) + 30x d(cost)/dx = -12000/x^2 + 30 = 0 for a min of cost 30 = 12000/x^2 x^2 = 400 x = 20 the two equal sides are 20 yds each, and the long side is 600/20 = 30 yds.

the x of the vertex is -b/(2a) = -184/(-32) = 5.75 seconds plug that into the function h(5.75) = 16(5.75^2) + 184(5.75) + 20 = 549 ft
