**Math**

a mess, is what. Still, I will try to parse your garbled sentence. 9 - 3 ÷ 1/3 + 1 = 1 If that's not what you meant, try using some parentheses to get what you want.

original: (d-3)/d now, adding 1's, we have (d-3+1)/(d+1) = 5 Hmmm. I suspect a typo, since d is not an integer.

clearly the numbers in question must have 6336 so, there are two 3's left over, which must go on the ends: 36336 63363

**Algebra**

you show B and D the same. Pick the one which is really 6^x x^6 is not what you want. That is (0,0),(1,1),(2,64)...

oh come on. either 4cotx+3 = 0 cotx = -3/4 or cotx-1 = 0 cotx = 1 In the first case, x will be in QII or QIV on the second case, x will be in QI or QIII
*May 20, 2016*

**math**

since csc^2 = 1+cot^2, 4(1+cot^2x)-7 = cotx 4+4cot^2x-7 = cotx 4cot^2x - cotx - 3 = 0 (4cotx+3)(cotx-1) = 0 Now it's easy, right?

**HELP ME ! DESPRATE MATH STUDENT !!**

you cannot compare those integers with 6 1/3 ? You are in deep doodoo. At the very least, grab a calculator and subtract each from 6.333333 If the result is positive they are less; if negative, they are greater.

**HELP ME ! DESPRATE MATH STUDENT !!**

well, geez, did you try a few values? 3*0 - 4 <= 15 ? 3*6 - 4 <= 15 ? and so on. or, algebraically, 3x-4 <= 15 3x <= 19 x <= 19/3 so, how many of those values fit the bill?

v/i = 5/2, so v = 5i/2 v = i+42 5i/2 = i+42 so, i=28 and v=70 You want to find x such that (70-x)/(28+x) = 3/4 I expect you can handle that part.

**Math Help!!**

well, is there any chance of rolling a zero?
*May 20, 2016*

**pre cal**

y = 4√(2x/3) - 1 y+1 = 4√(2x/3) just square both sides and you have y^2+2y+1 = 16(2x/3) That is clearly a parabola opening to the right.
*May 20, 2016*

**calculus**

why all those useless words? Use some math symbols! dy/dx = 3y/x dy/y = 3/x dx lny = 3lnx + c or, lny = ln(x^3) + ln(c) (different c) y = cx^3 y(1)=1 means c=1 y = x^3 I expect that you can determine the domain for that...

**math**

looks right to me.

**Algebra**

while 40 = 40*1, 20 ≠ 40*2 so, your first guess is wrong. However, note that x*y=40 for all the items.
*May 20, 2016*

**trigonometry**

I'll just use x for the angle sin^2(x)/(1-cos(x) = (1-cos^2(x))/(1-cos(x)) = (1+cosx)(1-cosx)/(1-cosx) = 1+cosx

of course you do. The perimeter was in inches -- so are the sides. Of course, you could use cm or miles or chains or light-years, but then the numbers would no longer be integers.

(x + 1/x)^2 = x^2 + 2 + 1/x^2 = 49 so, x + 1/x = 7 or -7
*May 20, 2016*

**calculus**

even without calculus, this one is easy. The x-intercept of y=2x+a is x = -a/2 So, you have a triangle with base 3a/2 and height 3a, so the area is 9a^2/4. If 9a^2/4 = 18, a = √8 check: ∫[-a/2,a] 2x+a dx = 9a^2/4
*May 20, 2016*

**Trigonometry**

Draw a diagram. The 14.6m part and the 4.4m part form two sides of a triangle. You want the 3rd side. Using the law of sines, 14.6/sin50° = 4.6/sinB now you have one more angle, so the 3rd angle C is easy to find, and the side you want is now easy. c/sinC = 14.6/sin50°
*May 19, 2016*

**math**

none. each side must be less than the sum of the other two. 9 is too long. The sides of 7 and 1, laid down completely flat don't reach from one end to the other.

did you try plotting the points? Note that the line from (0,0) to (4,0) is horizontal the line from (0,0) to (0,4) is vertical there are two kinds of triangle that cold be named.

**math . someone please explain**

a negative exponent changes to positive when it's swapped from top to bottom That is, x^-4 = 1/x^4 1/x^-4 = x^4 and, raising powers to powers multiplies them. So, your fraction can be written as (x^4y^4z^4)^4 / (-3x^-4y^-2) = x^16y^16z^16 / (-3/(x^4y^2)) = (x^16y^16z^16)(x...

**Math Trignometry**

Let x = distance from Ray to the point under the plane h = height of plane You can see from the diagram that (h-800)/(5280+x) = tan67° h/x = tan81° Now just eliminate x and solve for h. I get 21,119 (c-800)/tan(67°) -5280 = c/tan(81°)

the average rate of change is just (f(10)-f(2))/(10-2) so, plug and chug.

sin = y/r cos = x/r, so sec = r/x so, plot the triangle, find the missing side (x) and plug it in.

root(3,12m^2) Not sure why you have two arguments to root. Do you mean cube root? If so, then you just have 12^(1/3) m^(2/3) Then nth-root is just the (1/n) power. Plug it in and then just use the normal exponent operations.

I misread the problem. If we label the bottom of the pole B, then BT cot68 = (BT-20) cot28 Both those expressions give BP, the distance between the building and the pole. To get PT, then, PT^2 = BP^2 + BT^2
