v(t) = ds/dt = 128-32t So, plug in t=4.

for m months, the cost c is c = 127 + 28m now plug in m=9 for the cost of 9 months. actually, c is the cost of joining and then using the club. The question is poorly worded.

well, what was the date 250 years ago? A light-year is the distance light travels in a year. So, it took the light 250 years to get to earth.

Dan and Reiny just did one of these for you. Just make sure everything is expressed as powers of 3, then equate the powers to solve for x.

momentum is mv surely you can figure the starting and ending values. The time taken makes no difference.

the slope is the constant of variation. In this case, 11. This is just a special case of the slope-intercept form y = mx+b where b=0.

Since 25 > 21, the ellipse is long on the y-axis. So, the vertices are (0,5) and (0,-5) You should have immediately seen your answers were incompatible. The foci must lie on the major axis. Your foci are correct.

**trig**

since sin^2 + cos^2 = 1, cos(23) = √(1-p^2) cos(113) = cos(23+90) = cos(23)cos(90) - sin(23)sin(90) = -p sin(46) = 2sin(23)cos(23) = 2p√(1-p^2) Time to review your basic sum/double-angle formulas

**maths**

sin(2x) = 1/2 tan(x) 2sinx cosx = 1/2 sinx/cosx 4sinx cosx = sinx/cosx Clearly, sinx=0 is one intersection Elsewhere, we can divide through by sinx, and we have 4cos^2x = 1 cosx = ±1/2 Now you can easily find the points you want.

**Math**

what? You can't take a number, multiply it by -2 and subtract 4? y(0) = -2*0-4 = -4 Clearly, only C and D are possible answers. Now find y(1) the same way and you should get the correct choice.

pick any value for x, say 20 Then 2*20+y = 8 40+y = 8 y = -32 So, (20,-32) is one pair Or, pick any value for y, say 0 Then 2x+0=8 x=4 So, (4,0) is another pair

**PHYSICS**

If the parts are x and M-x, then F = Gx(M-x)/r^2 = G/r^2 (Mx-x^2) This is just a parabola, with vertex at M/2. That is, the force is maximum when the masses are equal. It's like the area of a rectangle with constant perimeter is greatest if it is a square.

if xi is the right endpoint, then 3 cannot be x1. That leaves only c and d for choices. Since the interval length is 2, and the number of divisions is 4, each interval is .5 in width. Looks like (c) to me. BTW, (d) is the set of midpoints.

rotation through 180° changes both signs. So, (3,-5) -> (-3,5) Did you actually plot your solution? You would see that it was nowhere near the rotated point. an equilateral triangle has axial and rotational symmetry.

**Algebra**

I don' see no steenking inequalities! For the equations, 6y = 9(x-6) 3(2y+5x) = -6 6y = 9x-54 6y+15x = -6 so, since we have 6y in both equations, set them equal: 9x-54 = -6-15x 24x = 48 x = 2 now you can find y.

excuse me? Every parallelogram is a regular parallelogram. They all have two sets of parallel sides. Pick any side and call it a base. The altitude is the perpendicular distance between that base and the parallel side.

you can go the e^kt route, but it's more transparent to use base 2, since we're talking about half-lives. 2^-1 = 1/2, so A = Ao*2^(-t/10) after 5 years, you have A = 20*2^(-5/10) = 14.14g Of course, since 2 = e^ln2, that means you could use (e^ln2)^(-t/10) = e^(-t*ln2/...

since the triangle is equilateral, the radius of the circle is 18. so, your area is 5/6 of a circle plus the area of the triangle, which is 18^2/4 √3 = 81√3
