larger x smaller y x+y = 83 x - 3y = 19 subtract them: 4y = 64 y = 16 , then x = 67 larger is 67, the smaller is 16

The $5,500 is irrelevant, all you want is the annual rate equivalent to 6% per annum, compounded monthly let that annual rate be i 1+i = (1 + .06/12)^12 1+i = 1.005^12 = appr 1.06168 the equivalent annual rate is 6.168 %

**algebra, how to do fractions?**

Don't let the fractions scare you .... slope = (15/32 - 1/4)/(5/8 - 1/3) = (15/32 - 8/32)/(15/24 - 8/24) = (7/32) / (7/24) = (7/32)(24/7) = 3/4 so y - 15/32 = (3/4)(x - 5/8) y - 15/32 = (3/4)x - 15/32 times 32 32y - 15 = 24x - 15 24x - 32y = 0 3x - 4y = 0

so arccos(?) is an angle, so let arcos(x/2) = θ that means cosθ = x/2 that is cosθ = adjacent / hypoenuse = x/2 so we are looking at a right-angles triangle with angle θ, adjacent = x, hypotenuse =2 Make a sketch, then x^2 + y^2 = 4 y^2 = 4-x^2 y = √(...
