**Algebra**

#1 factored, you have (x+3)(x+3)/(x-1) * (x-1)(x-1)/(x-3)(x+3) The (x-1)(x+3) cancels, leaving (x+3)(x-1)/(x-3) so, A #2 The (x-2) cancels, leaving D
*April 28, 2016*

**algebra 1**

you are correct. Although, since formatting is not always clear online, you should say 1/(x-3) so it is not confused with 1/x - 3 which is how 1/x-3 would normally be interpreted.

No way to tell. All we know is that the distance AC is somewhere between 28 and 154 miles. So, it will take between about 5 and 31 minutes. I suspect you have left something out,

#1 ok #2 (x+2)/(5x-15) * (10x^2-25x-15) (x+2)/(5(x-3)) * 5(x-3)(2x+1) the 5(x-3) cancels, leaving (x+2)(2x+1) if x≠3

**College Algebra (pt.3)**

yes, you did it wrong. You left out the t part: 1000 e^.08t = 1750 e^.08t = 1.75 .08t = log(1.75) t = log(1.75)/.08 = 6.99 or, 7 years. surely you didn't think that the money wold almost double in a year and a half at 8%!

**Algebra**

when dividing, just subtract exponents 4^4/4^6 = 4^(4-6) = 4^-2 = 1/16 or, you could look at it as 4^4/4^6 = 4^4/((4^4)(4^2)) now the 4^4 cancels, leaving 1/4^2 = 1/16

ln(5x-3) = 0 5x-3 = 1 x = 3/5 Your notation is a bit odd. I think you mean log5(x) = 3 x = 5^3 = 125 log2(32) = x 5 = x because 32 = 2^5 log2(3x+1) = 4 3x+1 = 2^4 = 16 x = 5 ^ is usually reserved for exponents, not used in logs.

initial means "at the start" I assume you know what velocity is. So, you are talking about the speed of something at the start of some process.

**Algebra**

You can use =/= for not equal. Or, you can find a site with math symbols, and copy/paste the ≠ character. How can you choose both A and C? (x+7) is a common factor, so A is the choice. Similarly, the second one is B. check your math.

**Physics Volume question!!!**

since the range is proportional to the square of the initial velocity, if it has increased by a factor 4, the initial velocity has doubled. Since the volume of water stays the same, that means that the area of the opening has been halved.

**PreCalc**

Reiny is right: 42.5, not 37.5 but I'm sure you caught my error. Note how he offset his function by using a phase shift, which has the same effect as changing the sign as I did, since shifting by 1/2 period does that flip: cos(x+pi) = -cos(x)
*April 27, 2016*

**PreCalc**

the max-min value is 50-35=15, so the amplitude is 7.5. The center line is (35+50)/2 = 37.5 y = 7.5 sin(x) + 37.5 y has a max at t=12, and the period is 24 hours, so the minimum k is a t t=0. cos(x) has a max at x=0, so we have -cos(x) and thus y = -7.5 cos(π/12 x) + 37.5...

since sin^2θ is never more than 1, you need cos^2θ = 0 so, θ = π/2 or 3π/2 or, solving algebraically, sin^2θ = cos^2θ + 1 cos^2θ - sin^2θ = -1 cos(2θ) = -1 θ = π/2 or 3π/2

From 0 to π/2, 4cos(x) is above 8-4x/π, so the area would be ∫[0,π/2] (8-4x/π)-4cos(x) dx = 7π/2 - 4 But there is a second symmetric region between π/2 and π, so the area is double that, or 7π-8 see http://www.wolframalpha.com/...
