if there are x yellow cars, there are 9x white cars so, add them up: x + 9x = 40 10x = 40 x = 4 Now you know how many yellow cars there are, so you can figure out how many white ones there are.

It is in fact C D is just a quadratic in (2/x-4), because if you substitute u=2/x-4, you have just 3u^2+5u-2=0 It is C because as you say, there is not a term with twice the exponent of the other.

since the plane descends 100 feet as it travels 5000 feet, clearly the slope is -100/5000 = -0.02 so, since y=100 when x=0, y = 100-0.02x Note that when x=5000, y = 0, and we have touchdown.
