so you need 15(10) or 150 man-days to do the job so with 6 men you would need 150/6 or 25 days or use a ratio 15/6 = x/10 6x = 150 x = 25

1 e^(3r) = 2 take ln of both sides 3r lne = ln2 , but lne = 1 3r = ln2 r = ln2/3 = .231.. So you will need a continuous rate of growth of 23.1 % good luck on that one.

if f(x) = g(x), it must be true for all values of x (all we need is ONE exception and they would not be equal) f(1) = 6 + -11/5 = a fraction g(1) = 3-4 = -1 so f(x) is NOT the simplified form of g(x)

(-9,-90°) this would point you clockwise 90° or 270° using the standard rotation. You would then go in the opposite direction for 9 units so equivalent to (9, 90°) (9,270°) would be the same as (9, -90°)

I will assume you meant to type (x^2 + 8x + 15)/(x+5) and you want to simplify it = (x+5)(x+3)/(x+5) = x+3 , x ≠ -5

You would use ADDITION No need for multiplication, division, or fractions in this case. 360+240=600

**MATH**

If you have two points (a,b) and (c,d) then the distance between them is √( (a-c)^2 + (b-d)^2 ) (notice that since we are squaring the difference, it really would not matter in which direction you are subtracting) e.g. for R(-2,1) and S(-5,1) RS = √( (-2+5)^2 + (1-...

Olivia, why did you not evaluate the equation given to you in the first reply ? it gives a time of 2.777... or 2.8 years Bob gave you the calculation using compound interest, the most likely scenario in our 21st Century, and the time for this real-life case would be 2.65 years...

What is this? Are you expanding 2x(3xy + 4y² + 8y) ? Then it would simply be = 6x^2 y + 8x y^2 + 16xy What you did is pure mathematical gibberish
