science pls help
Looks like you need to brush up on one of the most basic and useful identities in mechanics: F = ma F(N) = m(kg) * a(m/s^2) 1 N = 1 kg-m/s^2 So, with that in mind, #1: F = ma = 40kg * 10m/s^2 = 400 kg-m/s^2 = 400N #2: F = ma = 60kg * 2m/s^2 = 120N Note that you can eliminate t...

Math
after n hours, 1+3+3^2+3^3 + ... + 3^n = (3^n - 1)/2 people have heard the joke. So, we want n such that (3^n - 1)/2 = 8500 3^n = 17001 n = 8.8666 hours = 8 hrs 52 min

Math
7*8*4 = 56*4 = 224 recall that using a variable, 7x * 8x * 4x = 224x^3 Now, using units, 7ft * 8ft * 4ft = 224 ft^3

Math
did you multiply the three dimensions? If so, what did you get? If not, what's the problem?

Math - Answer Check
I'd say #15 is right, since you were given 180,000 inches. 2.84 miles is close enough, IMO.

Math - Answer Check
#12. a mile is 5280 ft, not 5820 The rest look ok (including #15!)

MATH
1/5 is correct 1/4 may be correct, but only if there is exactly one white sweater in the bunch.

Pre-Calculus
r = 5sinθ r^2 = 5r sinθ x^2+y^2 = 5y x^2 + (y - 5/2)^2 = 25/4

MATH
but 1 is not a prime. It is explicitly excluded from the list of primes.

Geometry
recall that if the legs of a right triangle are a and b, and the hypotenuse is c, then the Pythagorean Theorem states that a^2 + b^2 = c^2 So, the height of the triangle is 12 There are several commonly used right triangles which you would do well to commit to memory: 3-4-5 5-...

math
If there are 6 numbers on the die, how many of them are multiples of 4? I think not 2. How many numbers are there from 16-23? Remember to count both 16 and 23. #3 ok

Calculus
well, x^2/(2logx) = x^2/log(x^2), so if you can figure out the limit of x/logx, you're ok. Since x->0 and logx->-∞, x/logx -> 0/-∞ = 0 -------------- e^-x -> 0 as x->∞, so the upper limit -> 0 e^0 = 1, so the lower limit -> 2

Math
well, the factors of 18 are 1,2,3,6,9,18 The -21 in the middle makes me think that 2,9 will be likely, so (4x+9)(x-2) gives +x nope (2x+9)(2x-2) gives +14 Hmmm. That pesky 4. So, (4x+3)(x-6) : -21x YAY!

Math
after the 1/3, she had 2/3 left 1/2 of that is another 1/3, so if she started out with x, x - x/3 - x/3 = 6 x = 18 check: she spent 6, had 12 left. she lost half of 12, or another 6, leaving her with just 6.

Math
yes

Math
assuming the velocity is as written, a = 3(2) = 6 If you meant 3(2t+1)^0.4, then a = 2.4/(2t+1)^0.6 as usual, s = 25 + 1/2 at^2 = 25 + 3t^2 or = 25 + 1.2(2t+1)^1.4 just plug in your values.

Calc Help :(((((
d/dx(x) = dx/dx = 1 So, how come you included it in d/dx (x+3) but not in d/dx (x-8)? Your work so far is correct. 3(x+3)^2(x-8)^5(d/dx(x))+5(x+3)^3(x-8)^4 3(x+3)^2(x-8)^5 + 5(x+3)^3(x-8)^4 Now factor out some stuff: (x+3)^2 (x-8)^4 (3(x-8)+5(x+3)) (x+3)^2 (x-8)^4 (8x-9)

math
find the factors. If any of them is zero, the product is zero. Sometimes the factors are hard to find, and sometimes there are none using just real numbers. For higher than quadratics, it starts to become necessary to use various numerical methods.

math
I would assume it means to divide each third into two pieces (presumably also equal halves)

avg speed is total distance divided by total time: (5+4)/(21+39) km/min = 9 km/hr That's a pretty good clip!

as usual, draw a diagram and you will see that if θ=0 when x=0, tanθ = x/4 so, sec^2θ dθ/dt = 1/4 dx/dt Now, you have θ and dθ/dt, so just solve for dx/dt

Calculus
At time t, using the law of cosines, d^2 = (7t)^2 + (5t)^2 - 2(5t)(7t)cosπ/4 = 74t^2 - 35√2 t^2 = (74-35√2)t^2 so, 2d dd/dt = 2(74-35√2)t Now, plug in your numbers to get d(15), and solve for dd/dt at t=15 Remember to use appropriate units

what you have tried is the volume when rotating the region about the x-axis. But, of course, the volume of a disk is pi r^2 dx, not pi r^3 dx In addition, your radius is 3-x, not y, since you are rotating about the line x=3, not y=0. So, if you want to use discs, you need to i...

The diagonals are perpendicular, and they bisect each other. So, you have 4 right triangles with legs 6 and 3.5 The diagonals bisect the vertex angles, so the angle is 2arctan(6/3.5)
