**Algebra**

Square of the 3rd side is the hypothenuse. If we square root 1025, we'll get 5sqrt(41). 5sqrt(41) - 20^2 = 625 = 25^2

The answer is S. A right angle triangle follows Theorem Phytagoras rule. The sum of squares of 2 sides = length of the 3rd side For S, 25^2 + 20^2 = 1025

Use distance formula: sqrt[(x1-x2)^2 + (y1-y2)^2] x1,y1 = (-2,2) x2,y2 = (4,-6) Substitute all values inside. The final answer is an even integer. Work it out! :)

The formula is Q = mc(theta), where theta is difference in temperature (final- initial) m = 43g, Cp = 0.90 J/g & theta = 25 degree C Substitute all the values into the equation above: Q = (43)(0.90)(25) = 967.5 J

Hi Shanice, Numbers in total : 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 In the first draw : 2 was selected, therefore the probability of drawing a 2 is 1/8. (since there is only one 2 in the list) In the second draw, 3 was selected. The probability is again 1/8. Therefore the overall probability is: 1...

Hi Helen, this is easy! Solving the literal equation for 'a' means expressing the equation in terms of a. Let us see the solutions step by step: a) Multiplying the denominator a-b with y gives : y(a-b) = xab b)Expanding the parentheses y(a-b) gives ya-yb = xab c)Since ...

Hi Mary, Q30 : Yes you are correct. Vertex is the highest point of a graph. Moreover,the f(x) cannot be zero because if f(x) = 0, then 2|x| = -4 |x| = -2 ,which is undefined since |x|is always positive. Q21 : The answer is D. Try to substitute a number of x value and you'...

Hi Dee, this is ez! H3O+ is an hydronium ion, a Lewis acid and OH-, hydroxide ion is a Lewis base. Reaction between hydronium and hydroxide yields water molecules H3O+ + OH- ----> 2H2O This is called a neutralization reaction.

Hi Roger, For this problem, you have to cuberoot each of the element (64, x^5 & y^7) separately. For 64 , cuberoot of 64 is 4. x^5 , cuberoot is x^(5/3) y^7, the cuberoot is y^(7/3) Therefore the simplified cube radical form is 4x^(5/3)y^(7/3) Hope this helps you

Hi Brittney, The solution is as follows: Always start with the basic equation: H2 + O2 -----> H2O(l) Balancing the equation above gives: 2H2 + O2------> 2H2O(l) Since 200 molecules of H2 & O2 are involved,just multiply the equation above with 200, 200(2H2 + O2)---->...

I disagree that the answer is c < 4. The correct answer is c > 4. Lets see the steps again: x^2 + 4x + c = 0, b^2 - 4ac < 0 4^2 - 4(1)(c) < 0 16 - 4c < 0 16 < 4c 4c > 16 Therefore c > 4

Hi Ruth,this is easy! Imagine a right angle triangle. In this case, the length of the hypothenuse is 12'.Given the angle of elevation 68 degrees. Since it is a right angle triangle,one of the remaining two angles is 90 degrees. So the third angle is 180-90-68 = 22 degrees...

**Math - Triangles**

The answer should be c). The sum of angles for a triangle is 180 degrees. Since this is an isosceles triangle, it must have two equivalent angles. Therefore 180-26 = 154 degrees. When we divide 154 by 2, we get 77 degrees. So the possible degree measure is 78.

For the reaction: H2PO4- + HAsO42- ---> HPO42- + H2AsO4- Which pair exists as base in the equilibrium? H2PO4- & H2AsO4- are proton donors,therefore they are conjugate acids. HPO42- & HAsO42- are proton acceptors,therefore they are the base pairs asked in the question.Is it ...

So,the answers are HAsO42- & HPO4- rite? Because from what I found,HAs04 2- is weakly basic and HPO4 2- is a conjugate base. So the bases are these two species above. M I rite?
