**math 5**

I didn't see a question, but your response seems like a reasonable answer.
*August 18, 2015*

**Math**

R=xxx clearly the 1st digit is 0 or 5, so it must be 5, since 3-digit numbers don't usually start with 0. R=1x5 The second and third digits add to 8 R=135 The last item is redundant.

That would be ∜(8/9a^3) Not sure what you mean by simplify. You could break it into separate factors, but There aren't any 4th-powers to factor out of the radical.

The angles are 5x,6x,7x and they add to 180. So, 18x = 180, x=10, and the angles are 50,60,70 So what do you think?

**Math**

Nope. Inequalities do not have a single value for a solution. -3 < 2x+1 < 5 -4 < 2x < 4 -2 < x < 2 Clearly 4 does not work. 2*4+1 is not less than 5. Any value between -2 and 2 will work.

**Algebra**

domain is all reals except where the denominator is zero So, if you have 1/(x-1)^2 - 5 D= all reals except x=1 Clearly, 1/(x-1)^2 is smallest when x is huge. Then it is close to zero, but always a little bit positive. So, R= all reals y > -5

Since the ratio of radius/height is constant at any water depth (45/6 when full), r = 15/2 h. You want h when v=5000. v = 1/3 πr^2 h, so π/3 (15/2 h)^2 h = 5000 π/3 * 225/4 h^3 = 5000 h^3 = 12*5000/225 = 800/3 h = 6.43m

x^2 * x^n x^(2+n) x^3 * x^n = x^(3+n) now, after the division, subtracting powers, you have x^((2+n)-(3+n)) = x^-1 = 1/x You can see that this is so, because in the original fraction, you can cancel the x^n factors, leaving just x^2/x^3 = 1/x
