your solution is correct to check, you must go back to the original equation LS = log4 (19-3) = log 4 (16) = 2 -----> what must be exponent on 4 to get 16 ? = RS so x = 19

Let his original number of pens be x then his original number of pencils is 30 - x So for every pen he gets 2 pencils so x pens will yield him 2x pencils but he already had 30-x pencils, so 2x + 30-x = 48 x = 18 So, originally he had 18 pens and 12 pencils check: 12+18 = 30 , ...

I will assume you mean (1/25)^(x+2) = 125^-x or else we got ourselves one doosey of a problem (5^-2)^(x+2) = (5^3)^-x 5^(-2x-4) = 5^(-3x) then -2x-4 = -3x x = 4

Did you not read the 3 conditions I outlined for you? Especially this one: "- if the variable drops out, and you get a true statement, there will be an infinite number of solutions " so you got 0=0, which is true, thus there will be an infinite number of solutions

1st: 2(x-3) = 2x 2x - 6 = 2x -6 = 0 -----> contradiction, thus no solution 4th: 4(x+3) + 2x = x - 8 4x + 12 + 2x = x - 8 5x = -20 x = -4 -----> One solution in general - if you get ?x = ? , there will be one solution - if the variable drops out, and you get a true ...

#1, you can decide for yourself if (-5,-1) is correct by subbing in those values into both equations. You should be able to do this mentally. -- A quick mental calculation shows that your answer does not work in either equation from the 2nd: x = 2y + 10 plug that into the 1st...

When testing if a number is prime, you would only try primes as divisors until you reach the last prime < √(the number) e.g. is 71 prime try: 2, 3, 5, 7 none divided exactly, so 71 is prime (did not have to go for 11 , since 11 > √71 so for 1881 ... √...
