if they are parallel, then the lengths will be proportional. 10/2 = 5, so the ratios of the other dimensions will also be 5:1

**Algebra II**

So, with the triangle drawn as you have said, with the right angle on the x-axis, you just have a scaled up 3-4-5 triangle, with sides 15,20,25. sinX = 15/25 = 3/5 cosX = 20/25 = 4/5 tanX = 15/20 = 3/4 Looks like time to review your basic trig functions and the Pythagorean ...

the opposite side is √(y^2-x^2) so csc(Ø) = y/√(y^2-x^2)

**calculus-again frustrated-looking for steve asap**

sinh(y)=[(4sinh(x)-3)/(4+3sinh(x))] cosh(y) y' = (25cosh(x))/(4+3sinh(x))^2 cosh^2(y) = 1+sinh^2(y) = 25cosh^2(x)/(4+3sinh(x))^2 so, cosh(y) = 5cosh(x)/(4+3sinh(x)) y' = 5/(4+3sinh(x))

**calculus-help me sir~steve**

L{f'(t)} = sF(s)-f(0) L{f"(t)} = s^2 F(s) - sf(0) - f'(0) Not sure what to do with f(0)=f'(0) since you don't give a value. L{sin(t)-cos(t)} = (1-s)/(1+s^2) Just plug in the expressions and it will all fall out.

it's a right triangle so use the Pythagorean Theorem. If the other leg is x, then (5√3)^2 + x^2 = (x+2)^2

**Algebra II**

surely you know (a) what a reciprocal is (b) what a sum is (c) what consecutive integers are So, if the smaller integer is x, the equation is just 1/x + 1/(x+1) = 17/12 Unfortunately, I detect a typo. Fix it, and it will come out a lot better.

either that, or "pitcher" is the wrong word to use. In any case, just add the two numbers. Since you want the answer in "simplest form," I suspect Ms. Sue is right, and you have garbled your fractions.
