216 = 6^3 <-----> log6 216 = 3 How did you ever get 0 as an answer? That is not even an equation ! I suggest you memorize the definition of logs 16-(1/4)^-2 1/2 No idea what that is supposed to be. Was that supposed to be an equation like your question suggested?

so the $72.09 represents 70% of the original price .7x = 72.09 x = 72.09/.7 = $102.99 check by taking off 30% of that

length of side of the larger --- x length of side of the smaller -- y x+y = 5 So what do we see? We see 4 side faces of the larger = 4x^2 we see 4 side faces of the smaller = 4y^2 If we look straight down, we see a small face on top of the large face exposing the edge of the ...

Since you already have the second part, let's work on the number of pennies , dimes and quarters we have to make $5.98 number of pennies -- x number of dimes ---- y number of quarters -- 52-x-y x + 10y + 25(52-x-y) = 598 x+10y + 1300 - 25x - 25y = 598 -24x - 15y = -702 8x...

amount into lower rate account --- x amount into higher rate account --- 8000-x .04x + .07(8000-x) = 480 4x + 7(8000-x) = 48000 4x + 56000 - 7x = 48000 -3x = -8000 x = 8000/3 = 2666.67 amount into CD = $2666.67

Since F lies on DE, all we need is the equation of DE We don't even need F slope DE = (-2-2)/(-3-3) = 2/3 so y = (2/3)x + b but (3,2) lies on it, so 2 = (2/3)(3) + b b = 0 y = (2/3) x is the equation check: F is the origin (0,0) which satisfies y = (2/3)x A rather ...

#1 and #2 ok #3, I agree with you, there is little that can be done All I could see is to divide top and bottom by 2g #4 ok #5, careless error, 2/2p = 1/p , not p #6 you have a common denominator, so add them 8m^2/(4m^5) = 2/m^3 #7, according to BEDMAS, division is done in the...
