I am about 99% sure you meant: (p-24)/(p^2 - 3p - 18) , -3/(p+3), and p/(p-6) just add them up did you notice that p^2 - 3p -18 = (p+3)(p-6) ?? so you have your common denominator

I would make a sketch on a graph to see what the problem is find the length of GH, GK and HK then test using Pythagoras I will find GH, you find the other two. GH = √(8-3)^2 + (5-2)^2 ) = √(25 + 9) = √34 hint: remember that if you square √34 , you get 34

Yes, make sure your wording of the answer matches your diagram. I don't know which method you use to state direction angles, but it could be called W 5.29° S

velocity has two components, 1. magnitude, your answer is correct for that 2. direction look at your triangle, it was clearly right-angled, and you found the length of the hypotenuse Now, can you find one of the acute angles ? (hint: tangent)

**calculus**

All are correct except the last one. you will need the cosine law, r^2 = 650^2 + 175^2 - 2(650)(175)cos175° = 545657.5863 r = appr 738.69 remember cos 114° is negative, so the 2abcosØ gets added, this is a common error with obtuse angles and the cosine law

nope, think about what it means ... y^4 = yyyy y^3 = yyy so (y^4)(y^3) = (yyyy)(yyy) = y^7 when multiplying powers with the same base, keep the base and add the exponents

**Equation find x xo tricky**

I read that as: (x^x)√x = x(√x^x) square both sides x^(2x)(x) = x^2(x^x) x^(2x+1) = x^(x+2) 2x + 1 = x+2 x = 1

**Math Answer Check**

1. ok #2 why are you giving the negative result? cos 7π/2 = 0 so we need cos^-1 (0) = π/2 see: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=arccos%28cos%287pi%2F2%29%29+ #4. arctan (11/60) construct a right-angled triangle with opposite as 60 and adjacent as 11 r^2 = 11^2 + ...

A = { 3, √2, 2√3, √9, √7} , but √9 = 3 which is rational, so you have 2 rationals out of the 5 well ?

I will number your problems 1. ok 2. you need 6.5 ÷ 1/3 = 19.5 I would have expected a whole number, since it deals with people. So 19 would receive a full 1/3 of a box, and the 20th person would get less than 1/3 of a box 3. 3^2 = 9 , which is rational 1/5 is rational ...

don't you get a right-angled triangles with legs of 30 and 60 ? How about Pythagoras ?

**TC Maths**

recall that sinxcosx - sinycosy = cos(x+y) LS = (sin^2(x)-cos^2(y))/(Sinx cosx-Sinycosy) notice I inserted the absolutely necessary brackets to make the statement true = (sinx + cosy)(sinx - cosy)/(cos(x+y)) not getting anywhere ≠ tan(x+y) I usually test the equation ...

**Word problem maths**

Restating what Steve said in a slightly different way: sum of ages of all 21 boys = 21(14 3/12) = 299 1/4 sum of ages without oldest = 20(14 2/12) = 283 1/3 age of boy not included (oldest) = 299 1/4 - 283 1/3 = 15 11/12 which is exactly what Steve did

well, let's set the velocity equal to zero ... 3t^2 - 12 = 0 3t^2 = 12 t^2 = 4 t = ± 2, but t ≥0 so the velocity is zero when t = 2 so what is the acceleration when t = 2 ??
