College Algebra and Trigonometry
Wow, 20 sheets of paper ? Since you titled your post "College Algebra & Trig" I will assume you know that both cos(π/4) and sin(π/4) = √2/2 so x = (√2/2)u - (√2/2)v and y = (√2/2)u + (√2/2)v In 5x^2 - 6xy + 5y^2 we will need...

perfectly set up for using substitution: in the 2nd: 4x - 2(3x+2) = -8 4x - 6x - 4 = -8 -2x = -4 x = 2 , then y = 3(2) + 2 = 8 but, anyway... line them up in a better way: #1: 3x - y = -2 #2: 4x - 2y = -8 double the first: 6x - 2y = -4 subtract the 2nd: 2x = 4 x = 2 sub back ...

number of pictures it can hold --- x (1/4)x + 375 = (2/3)x times 12 3x + 4500 = 8x 5x = 4500 x = 900 so originally we had (1/4)900 = 225 pictures

number who play clarinet --- x number who play flute ----- 2x , (notice how I avoided fractions?) 2x + x + 8 = 44 3x = 36 x = 12 So 12 play clarinet, 24 play flute and 8 play oboe

ok, you fixed your earlier typo. Did you make a sketch? I completed the parallogram and am looking at a triangle with sides 30 and 15 and the angle between them as 102° by the cosine law: R^2 = 30^2 + 15^2 - 2(30)(15)cos102 = 1312.102... R = appr 36.22 mph by sine law: sin...

first line them up properly #1: -x + 2y = 6 #2: x - 6y = -18 add them: -4y = -12 y = 3 in #1: -x + 6 = 6 -x = 0 x = 0 why did you not sub your values back in to see if you are correct ?

Mmmmhhh, as a Canadian, I always thought that the US had 50 states, but anyway .... You must have data for the whole country, but I will give you the hints for the 10 sets of data you show. I will not do the arithmetic for you. To get the mean, just add them up and divide by ...

trigonometry
One more clue. Since all 6 trig functions can be defined in terms of sin and cos, I often change everything to sines and cosines, unless I see an obvious definition such as 1 + cot^2 Ø = csc^2 Ø in #1

trigonometry
Most of these appear to be based on the Pythagorean identity sin^2 x + cos^2 x = 1 , and its variations e.g. if I divide the above by sin^2 x , I get 1 + cot^2 x = csc^2 x and that is what I see in the LS of #1 Use LS for left side and RS for right side, work each side ...

cosx - cosx/(1-tanx) = sinxcosx/(sinx - cosx) LS = cosx - cosx/(1 - sinx/cosx) = cosx - cosx/( (cosx - sinx)/cosx ) = cosx - cosx(cosx)/(cosx - sinx) = cosx + cos^2 x/(sinx - cosx) = (sinxcosx - cos^2 x + cos^2 x)/(sinx - cosx) = sinxcosx/(sinx - cosx) = RS

If you have a typo in #1 and you meant: cot^2y(sec^2 y-1)=1 , then LS = cot^2 y (tan^2 y) = 1 = RS recall that : tanx = sinx/cosx and cotx = cosx/sinx so tanxcotx = (sinx/cosx)(cosx/sinx) = 1 The first substitution is one of the basic Pythagorean identities derived from sin^2 ...

nice triangle, with sides 20,20 and the contained angle between them as 3° could just use cosine law: x^2 = 20^2+20^2-2(20)(20)cos3° = 1.09637.. x = √1.09... = appr 1.047 miles or since you have an isosceles triangle, draw and altitude to get a right-angled ...

Assuming the second purchase was in 500 g packages .... (typo) The shopkeeper bought 30(1000) + 20(500) or 40000g , or 40 kg He/she divided this into 40000/125 smaller packets or 320 packets of 125 g each
