well, is (2+3)^2 = 2^2+3^2 ? Hint: (x+y)^2 = (x+y)(x+y) expand that and compare to x^2+y^2

if the initial value is v, v - .35(2) = 13520 Now, knowing v, after n years the car is worth v(1 - .35n) Note that the car is fully depreciated after only 3 years, if the depreciation is 35% of the full value each year.

math trig
If B is at distance x from the tower of height h, h/x = tan 46° h/(x+80) = tan21° so, eliminating x, we get h/tan46° = h/tan21° - 80 Now just solve for h

the outer tire travels 2pi*1.7 = 10.68 m farther than the inside tire Since the radius is .4 m, that's an extra 4.25 revolutions per lap Since a lap takes 20.2 seconds, that's an extra 2pi*4.25 rad/20.2 s = 1.32 rad/s

PV/T is constant So, if we have 2P, we need 2T to hold the ratio. (T, of course is Kelvin)

since PV/T is constant, if P increases by a factor of 4.69/4.6, T decreases by a factor of 4.6/4.69. T is Kelvin, of course.

Maths
you know the general shape of a cubic. The only real trick is finding where the roots are, then sketch a cubic curve through the roots. A little synthetic division shows that f(x) = (x-1)(x-3)(x-3) So, draw your cubic curve so that it crosses at x=1 and is tangent at x=3.

If the front of the log is at distance d, and the log has length x, then 30/d = tan 16.7° 30/(d+x) = tan 14° eliminate d and we have 30/tan16.7° = 30/tan14° - x now just solve for x, the length of the log.

Looks good. Nice work. We'd much rather see that you are making an effort to solve the problems, rather than just getting someone else to do your assignments. Although, usually the earlier time is mentioned first, as was done in the problem.

In that case, he gets a $16.80 discount, making his base membership cost $67.20 SO, he gets an additional discount of $19.20 to bring his cost down to $48. At $5/referral, that would mean 4 referrals would do the trick. In symbols, we have 84(.8)-5n < 48 67.20 - 5n < 48 ...

well, a 5-gallon bucket costs the same as 4 1-gallon cans. So, if g <= 4, buy cans. If 4<g<=5, but the bucket. Naturally, if g > 5, buy enough buckets so that the remainder is less than 5. Then apply the above rule for the remainder.
