Not enough information. since volume of a rectangular prism, a plain ol' box, is (length)(width)(height) any 3 numbers that will multiply to give you 256 will work e.g. L = 16 W = 8 H = 2 or L = 32 W = 8 H = 1 or L = 10 W = 6.4 H = 4 etc

the way you typed it, it is not a quadratic but a cubic e.g. 10x^2 - 1/x = 3 times x, 10x^3 - 1 = 3x 10x^3 - 3x - 1 = 0 , which is a cubic equation appr x = .67023 if you meant: (10x^2 - 1)/x = 3 then 10x^2 - 1 = 3x 10x^2 - 3x - 1 = 0 (2x - 1)(5x + 1) = 0 x = 1/2 or x = -1/5 ...

I assume you are rounding to the nearest thousand since it rounds to 4000, the hundreds digit could only be 0,1,2,3, or 4 if the number starts with a 4 or only 5,6,7,8,9 if it starts with a 3 but the hundreds digit is twice the tens, so the hundreds digit must be even so cases...

let the number of cookies be x let the number of friends by y x - 5y = 0 x - 3y = 36 subtract them: -2y = -36 y = 18 x - 5(18) = 0 x = 90 John has 90 cookies.

starts with x spends half, so amount left = (1/2)x Spends 1/3 of that, so left with (2/3)of (1/2)x thus amount left = (2/6)x or (1/3)x but (1/3)x = 20 x = 60

Geometry
no, one other piece of information , such as one of the angles or one of the diagonals must be given. Many years back on Sesame Street, Oscar the Grouch took a rectangle and squished it, so its angles were no longer 90°. He then called it a wrecked-angle. Notice that if ...

ahhh #2 - Math
looks like our replies crossed. So there was an actual direction to your problem. Now you state: "Write each expression as a single logarithm" Why didn't you say that at the beginning and avoid all this confusion.?

Just thought I would play some "Jeopardy" with your post Alex Trebek : log3 (3x^2) me: What is 1 + log3 (x^2) simplified expanation: log3 (3x^2) = log3 3 + log3 (x^2) = 1 + log3 (x^2) so the two expressions are the same.

1 + log3(x^2) is not a question 1 + log3(x^2) is an algebraic expression What do you want to do with it ? Do you want to solve something like 1 + log3(x^2) = 0 ? Do you want to colour it blue? Do you want to sent it to Donald Trump as a campaign slogan? etc The way it stands, ...

just replace y with x, since it says y = x 2x^2 - x^2 = 1 x^2 = 1 x = ±1 if x = 1, then y = 1 if x = -1, then y = -1

arrangements in a line = 5! = 120 around a circle, with no specified position around the table = 5! / 5 = 4! = 24 e.g. for any arrangement of the 5 people around the table, everybody could get up, move once to the left, and the arrangement would not change, etc . We could do ...

Just use ordinary keyboard keys According to the properties of tangents to circles, AO is perpendicular to PA making angle PAO = 90°, thus angle angle POA = 90-32 = 58° The same property is true for angle POB since PA = PB , angle POB = 58° Then angle AOB = 116°...

sounds like conditional probabilty Prog(A|B) , (read as the prob of A, given B) = prob(A AND B)/prob(B) prob(A and B) = 1/15 prob(B) = 7/15 prob( as stated) = (1/15) / (7/15) = 1/7 (of course, since the 4 is one of the 7 even numbers from 1 - 15)

I agree with Ms Sue To show us that you are not merely sponging off us, for the question above, I would be interested in your thinking to solve the problem So you want whole numbers m and n so that 3^m + 2^n ≤ 999
