**Pre Calculus**

You have to factor the polynomial. If for instance you get (x-3)(x+2), then your x intercepts are where you take each to equal 0. (x-3)= 0 so x = 3; and (x+2) = 0 so x = -2. The x intercepts are the opposite sign of the values of the constants in each binomial.

1/3 is your new whole, NOT 1. So take 1/4 of 1/3 + 1/6 of 1/3 + 1/6 of 1/3. Pretend there are 180 plants. That would make 60 of them on sale. 1/4 of that is 15, 1/6 is 10 and 1/6 is 10. so that makes 35 out of the 180 is 7/36. 1/12 +1/18+1/18 or 3/36 + 2/36 + 2/36= 7/36.

3/4 divided by 7/12 is the same as 3/4 X 12/7. This is the same as (3X12)/(4X7) which can first be reduced down to (3X3)/(1X7)= 9/7 or 1 and 2/7.

Seet up a proportion of Shadow/height for each object. So Shalonda would be 8/4 and the flagpole would be 28/x. so 8/4 = 28/x. Cross multiply and divide. (28 X 4) / (8x) or 112/8 = x. So the pole is 14 feet tall which makes sense if her shadow is twice as long as she is tall, ...

**Math**

If radius and height are halved, then the total surface area is 1/4 the size. (1/2)^2 = 1/4. So 218 /4 = 54.5 units squared. We get the relationship from SA being 2 dimensions, so we square the ratio. If this were volume, you would cube the scale factor ratio.

**Math**

pythagorean theorem.....if the height is 4 times, and it must reach 16, then the distance along the horizontal must be 4. so 4^2 + 16^2 = c^2. where c is the length of the ladder. Use a calculator to solve.
