almost always you can take "of" to mean "times" 25% of 200 = .25 * 200 = 50

looks like there was a 20% discount, plus 6% tax.

Math
Note that 4x^2 and 9 are both perfect squares, so the first thing I'd try is (2x+3)^2 good guess!

Math - Int Trig
I'll do one. Do the others in like wise. If you get stuck, come on back with what you did. (g∘h) = 3/(h^2+2) = 3/(x-2+2) = 3/x (g∘h)(-2) = 3/-2 = -3/2 The domain of h is x>=2 The domain of g is all reals, since x^2+2 is never zero. So, the domain of (g∘...

Algebra
the common denominator is (b+1)(b+2)(b-2), so when you place all over the common denominator, you have [4(b^2-4) + 1(b+1) + 5(b+1)(b-2)]/[(b+1)(b^2-4)] (9b^2-4b-25)/(b^3+b^2-4b-4)

PRE CALC
cos k*pi = 1,-1,1,-1 so they add to zero and the sum is just 4

Algebra
(x^3)^-4 = x^-12 (-2x^-2)^-3 = (-2)^-3 (x^-2)^-3 = -1/8 x^6 multiply those and you have -1/8 x^-6 = -1/(8x^6)

Math
so, what's the problem? 2 2*159 = 318 3 ... 5 10

math - 6th grade
subtract 3x+2 from both sides and you have 4x+2 -3x-2 = 3x+9 -3x-2 x = 7

Math
Tn = -3n

Math
subtract 3 for each successive term. So, by the 93rd term, you have done it 92 times. -3 - 3*92 = -279

Math
I don't see any equations (gotta have an = sign for that) add 4 for each term. So, for the 76th term, you have added 4 75 times, and it is thus -2 + 75*4 = 298

Geometry
Each lateral face is a rectangle. The trapezoid has four sides, possibly all different, so you have four rectangles. Then add the areas of the two trapezoidal bases.

Geometry
well, duh - it's the area of the triangular base. If you're discussing prisms, you've surely already covered triangles, no?

Math
looks like y = 2 - x/2 Note that y decreases by 1 when x increases by 2, making the slope -1/2

math
subtract the smaller rectangle from the larger. The remainder is the area covered by the frame. 28*24 - 24*20 = ? or, rewriting things a bit, 28*24 - 20*24 = 8*24 = ?

math
If you look at the table, you should find a value of 1500(1+.12/4)^(4*8) = 3862.62

well, of course, the larger circle has radius 1. Draw a diagram of the upper right quarter of the square. Include half the diagonal of the square, which goes through the centers of the two circles (O and Q), which are tangent at point P. Draw a vertical diameter of the smaller...

Calculus
20^n = 5^n * 4^n so, you have 5^n/20^n + 4^n/20^n = 1/4^n + 1/5^n both of which converge

Calculus
sure you do. It's just a geometric series a = 1/e^2 r = 1/e^2 S = a/1-r = (1/e^2)/(1 - 1/e^2) = 1/(e^2-1)

Algebra 2
division by zero is not defined. So, when the denominator is zero, f(x) is not defined. x^2-4x+3 = (x-1)(x-3) so, when x=1 or 3, you are trying to divide by zero. Those values are not part of the domain. Note that x^2-9 = (x-3)(x+3) So, for any value except x=3, f(x) = (x+3)/(...

.2^(t/4) multiplies by 0.2 every time t increases by 4. That's how the efficiency is described in words. so, get out your calculator (online or physical) and evaluate some values for t. As a sanity check, 50% is a little more than twice as much as 20%, so expect t to be so...

3x^2+6x-2 = 0 better use the quadratic formula. x = (-6±√60)/6

gotta clean up those ? marks with + or - signs.

Algebra
e^2-e-12 = (e-4)(e+3) dividing by e-4 leaves e+3 similarly, a^2+11a+30 = (a+5)(a+6) x^2+3x+2 = (x+1)(x+2) x^2+5x+6 = (x+2)(x+3) now the LCM should be easy

rats - that's dx/dt = -6csc^2θ dθ/dt when θ=π/3, we have x = 6/√3 and cscθ = 2/√ dx/dt = -6(4/3)(-π/3) = 8π/3 km/min

Odd notation. P is a point (x,y) so usually we would see dy/dx = 3y y = c*e^3x 2 = c, so y = 2e^(3x) You divided the right side by 3 and multiplied the left aside by 3, but that was not correct: dy/dp = 3y ∫dy/y = ∫3dp ...

draw the lines for the equations For the first one, shade the area below the (dashed) line, since y is less than 2x-9 For the second one, shade the area above the (solid) line, since y is greater than or equal to 3-5x.

a^2 + b^2 = 16 2ab = 8 (a+b)^2 = 24 so, a and b will not be integers. Their sum is √24 or -√24, and both will have the same sign, since ab > 0. b = 4/a, so we have a^2 + 16/a^2 = 16 a^4 - 16a^2 + 16 = 0 a = ±2√(2±√3) b = ±(√...

y = 6.2x + b 2222.4 = 6.2*52 + b, so b = 1900 So, we now know that y = 6.2x + 1900 Just plug in x=26 Or, without even finding b, we know that each gallon of fuel weighs 6.2 pounds, so just subtract 26*6.2 from 2222.4

so, if you have √(y+3) - 4 = 5 √(y+3) = 9 y+3 = 81 y = 78 by the way, I meant that you could have written sqrt(y+3), not just show ... as the argument.

try √ to copy/paste. as written, I read y+3-4 = √5 but that seems unlikely. You can also write sqrt(...) to show explicitly what is inside the radical.
