You appear to have a typo You must have meant: $20.25 per hour for overtime. normal weekly wage = 40(3.50) = 140 leaving 661.50-140 or $521.50 for overtime. overtime hours = 521.5/20.25 = 25.75 So he worked 40 + 25.75 or 65.75 hours. strange question: very huge gap between ...

current charge -- $180 membership ---- 1000 Let the number of $5 increases be m new charge = 180 + 5n membership = 1000 - 10n revenue = (180+5n)(1000-10n) = 180000 + 3200 - 50n^2 = -50(n^2 - 64n - 3600) this is a parabola and the vertex will yield our answer the n of the ...

let the diagonals be a and b respectively. given : ab = 144 but the area of a rhomus = (1/2) product of diagonals = 1/2 (144) = 72 and that was also given. So we have redundant information, but not enough to find the values of a and b a and b could be any values, so that ab = ...

what about it ? If you are solving, let y = x^2 - 4 then you have y^2 - y - 30 = 0 (y-6)(y+5) = 0 y = 6 or y = -5 sub back in: case1: x^2 - 4 = 6 x^2 = 10 x = ± √10 case2: x^2 - 4 = -5 x^2 = -1 x = ± i , if you want complex number solutions.

I will use x instead of beta for easier typing tanxsinx + cosx = secx I usually try to express everything in terms of sines and cosines, so LS = (sinx/cos)sinx + cosx = sin^2x/cosx + cos^2 x/cosx = (sin^2 x + cos^2 x)/cosx = 1/cosx = secx = RS Give the other two a try using ...
