**Math - Trigonomety**

What a silly and unrealistic problem, anyway .... I made a sketch the main working triangle has the height of the tree, its opposite angle as 10°, and the other angles as 105° and 65° The side opposite the 105° is also the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle ...

x/2 + 2y/3 = -1 ---> 3x + 4y = -6 x - y/3= 3 --------> 3x - y = 9 elimination: subtract them: 5y = -15 y = -3 sub into the 2nd 3x - (-3) = 9 3x = 6 x = 2 x = 2, y = -3 by substitution: from the 2nd: y = 3x-9 into the 1st: 3x + 4(3x-9) = -6 3x + 12x - 36=-6 15x = 30 x = 2...

**math**

to me this says: x = 4sin^3 t y = 7cos^3 t dx/dt= 12(sin^2 t)(cost) = 12cost(sint)^2 dy/dt= 21(cos^2 t)(-sint) or -21sint(cost)^2 both dx/dt and dy/dt must be zero for dx/dt =0 , dy/dt=0 12cost(sint)^2 = 0 , -21sint(cost)^2 = 0 in other words, wherever the sine or cosines are ...

**Pre algebra**

1 km/h = (1/60) km/minute (how many minutes are there in 1 hour? ) You don't post an actual speed (typo?). so suppose you have 80 km/h = (80/60) km/min = (4/3) km/min replace my speed with whatever speed you have, then simplify ??/60 to lowest term fractions.

**Jim and Mia : - Math (6)**

Jim, they do intersect at one point only, thus creating an open region on the left. By squaring you are introducing a part of the graph which was originally undefined. y = √x is defined only for x ≥ 0 Mia: Both Steve and I gave answers to this earlier http://www....

graph of your function http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=y%3D++-xe%5E%28-x%5E2%29++from+0+to+1 notice the region will be below the x-axis, so height = 0 - (-xe^(-x^2)) = xe^(-x^2) area = integral (xe^(-x^2)) dx from 0 to 1 = (-1/2) e^(-x^2) from 0 to 1 = (-1/2) e^-1 - (-1/2...

Here is what your curve looks like from x = -1 to +1 http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=y%3D+2x%2F%28x%5E2%2B4%29+from+-1+to+1 So where is the shaded region? Are you finding the area between the curve and the x-axis? (That is the usual case for this question, but let me know...

**Trig**

Or use the old sum of roots and product of roots property sum of roots = 5+i√2 + 5-i√2 = 10 product of roots = (5+i√2)(5-i√2) =25-2i^2 = 25+2 = 27 x^2 - (sum)x + product = 0 x^2 - 10x + 27 = 0
