well, you have the mass of 1 liter. So, what is the mass of 2 liters? Now just look up the conversion factor for kg to lb. A handy site is http://www.onlineconversion.com/weight_common.htm On the home page there, you can find many other conversion calculators.

think of the calendar as units of 24 hours So, 5:44 am on day 10 is the same as 29:44 on day 9. So, subtract 14 from 29 and you have 15:44 of the previous day, or 3:44 pm. Or, you could just subtract 24 hours, giving you 5:44 am of the previous day. But you only wanted to ...

**Alegbra**

If you mean y = -3/2 (x+5) you can see easily that y=0 when x = -5. So, that's where the graph crosses the x-axis. Now, since the slope -s -3/2, just mark a second point, 3 down and 2 to the right from there. Join those two points with a line, and that's the graph.

Draw a diagram, including the radii to the ends of the chord. Draw the radius perpendicular to the chord. You now have two right triangles with one leg=1 and hypotenuse=5. Half the length of the chord is √24.

**Algebra II**

no, since 2x^2+x-15 = (2x-5)(x+3) Just multiply both sides by (2x-5)(x+3) The thing to watch out for is to be sure to note that 5/2 and -3 must be excluded from the domain.

**mat/117**

you want where P < 0 P(x) = 750x(20-x) You know that P=0 when x=0 or 20 Since the graph is a parabola opening downward, P>0 between the roots. So, P<0 if x>20

Surely this treated in your text. You want A/(v-1) + B/(v+2) = 1/(v-1)(v+2) A(v+2) + B(v-1) = 1 Av + 2A + Bv - B = 1 (A+B)v + (2A-B) = 0v + 1 For those polynomials to be identical, all of the coefficients must match. So, we have A+B = 0 2A-B = 1 solve those and you get A = 1/3...

You use partial fractions. 1/(v+2)(v-1) = 1/3 (1/(v-1) - 1/(v+2))

**Math**

The fan is a sector of a circle. That means that 198 = 1/2 (x+3)^2 θ Unless you know how much of a circle the fan occupies (that is, what is θ, compared to 2π), there's no way to solve for x. If the fan is a half-circle, θ=π, so 198 = 1/2 (x+3)^2...

the slopes are the same, so they are either parallel or the same line. If you multiply the 1st by -3, the constant term is different from 7, so the lines are parallel.

Hmmm. I get √(4x+1)+√(x+3)=2 4x+1 + 2√(4x^2+13x+3) + x+3 = 4 5x = -2√(4x^2+13x+3) 25x^2 = 4(4x^2+13x+3) 25x^2 = 16x^2 + 52x + 12 9x^2 - 52x - 12 = 0 (9x+2)(x-6) = 0 x = -2/9 , 6 But x=6 does not satisfy the original equation, so -2/9 is the only solution.
