Just like 3(2x+5) = 6x + 15 just like 3(7+2) = 21 + 6 so is √5(2+√5) = 2√5 + √25 = 2√5 + 5 you could also check by evaluating it with your calculator.

√5/(2-√5) ?? what about it? If you are rationalizing it, then = √5/(2-√5) * (2+√5)/(2+√5) = (2√5 + 5)/(4-5) = -2√5 - 5

y^3 = 16x^2 when x = 4 y^3 = 16(256) y = 16 3y^2 dy/dt = 32x dx/dt sub in our values 3(256) (-1) = 32(4) dx/dt dx/dt = -768/128 = -6

Write fractions this way: x/2 - 1/3 - x/4 LCD = 12 6x/12 - 4/12 - 3x/12 = (3x - 4)/12 Your answer makes no sense. (It doesn't even have an x term)

**Inverse Trig**

for both cases, since for any -π/2 < y < 0 the sine will be negative, we only have to concern ourself with angles in the first quadrant. so if y = arcsin (√3/2) then y = π/3 ( I know sin 60° = sin π/3 = √3/2 ) and for the second one y = &#...

look at the sine curve, it is zero, or crosses the horizontal axis at 0 , ±π , ±2π .. or in general kπ , where k is an integer.

**Inverse Trig**

since sin(?) and arcsin(? are inverses of each other, arcsin( sin (6π) ) = 6π , but that is beyond your stated boundary. so arcsin(sin 6π) = arcsin 0 = 0 , π , 2π
