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.
You cube the scale factor, so 4^3 = 64 times. lwh = 4lX4wX4h = 64lwh.
Make a list of factors for both the coefficient of the x^2 term and the constant. In this case, 1 and 10. so 1X1 and then 1X10 and 2X5. Also, the fact that the constant is a negative 10, that means one of the 2 binomials must be negative. Then you look for the combination of t...
"How much more" would be subtraction, so subtract the smaller from the larger. 2/3 -5/9. (You can tell 2/3 is larger because the closer the numerator is to the denominator, the larger the fraction) Get common denominators or "names" as I like to use so that...
Assuming the dice are 6 sided, there are 36 possible outcomes to this situation, 6X6. How many are multiples of 7? Check the sample space, none of them are multiples of 7,impossible to get without a 7 involved.
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.
Wolframalpha is a great site for these type of problems. Check it out.
a plane is flying in the direction of 190 degrees with an air speed of 400 mph. Its course and ground speed are 200 degrees and 350 mph respectively. What is the speed and direction of the wind?
The easiest way to do this is do (30X 3) + (4X3) or 90 + 12 which is 102. No regrouping needed. This is called Partial products method.
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.
