Actually, wait. You should be using tan, since you're given the adjacent side. (The lesson here: always draw a picture.) 120tan(36).

**Math**

The transit here is extraneous information-- it's simply a device used to measure angles (I assume). We know that the base of the right triangle is 120 feet. (Notice that the transit of 8ft is nonsensical in this problem doesn't make sense because we're solving for...

Perimeter is the sum of all sides. For a rectangle, P = 120 = 2L + 2W. You are given that L = 3n W = n, so you can now do a substitution into the perimeter equation: 120 = 2(3n) + 2(n). Simplifying this, we get 120 = 8n, so n = 15. Revisiting our length and width equations, L...

You are correct. :-) A conjunction joins two parts of a sentence together. A better example to describe this would be "Alice bought a calculator, and Ben bought a mouse." The conjunction "and" divides the sentence into two thoughts-- "Alice bought a ...

Set up a proportion: If Bill can type 10 pages in 24 minutes and we want to know how many pages he can do in 5.5 hours (330 minutes), a possible proportion is: 24/10 = 330/x Cross-multiplying we get 24x = 3300, so x = 3300/24 = 138 pages.

**Algebra**

The easiest way to justify this is to visualize the graph. We know from the first the signs of this equation that this quadratic opens upwards and know that it is shifted to be above the x-axis, so the quadratic never crosses the x-axis and therefore has no roots. You could ...

Net daily change is revenue - expenditures, 12500 - 15000 = -2500. The overall change in the treasury's funds is 1.1Mil - 1Mil = 100K. To find out how many days, we divide the overall change by the net daily change in revenue: 100K / 2500 = 40 days.

Her preliminary cost (prior to tax and tip) is regular price (p) - 2. Tax and tip is 20% of this preliminary cost, so total cost is 9 = 1.2(p - 2). p = $9.50. (Nice coupon, there...)

**Math**

We know that after cutting 1/3 of the coil and 8m of the coil, 1/2 of the coil remains. This can be written as 1/3 + x = 1/2, where x will be 1/6. We know that this 1/6 of the coil is 8m, so the total length of the coil is 8 * 6 = 48m because one coil = 6 subcoils each of 8m.

Where is Q located? I'll explain how to do this, since I don't know enough about this problem. Solve for the the bob's velocity right before it hits ball Q using energy equations: U(bob) = KE(bob) + U(Q). From here you can use your elastic equations to solve for ...

The volume of the tank is 3885 cubic centimeters. Volume is equivalent to length * width * height, in which you are provided both length and width. Your equation becomes 3885 = 18.5 * 15 * height Solving this, we get height = 14 cm.

We want f(x) - g(x) and are given both equations. All you have to do is substitute: 9x^3=2x^2-5x+5 - (5x^3-7x+4) Be sure to distribute that negative sign! (I'd give you an answer but I'm not sure what that equals sign is supposed to be?)

A picture is helpful. Start by drawing the 8 by 12 lot. The field must fit in this lot and is 3 by 6. The area that is not the field is the remaining area. This is a simple area calculation. Total area of the lot is 8 * 12 minus the area of the field, 3 * 6. The remaining area...

From the problem statement, we know that some 6 integers must sum to 171. To get an idea of what these numbers are, start by dividing 171 by 6. This yields 28.5, which is what the average of our numbers are. Here we can construct numbers close to this interval-- the problem ...

**Maxima and minima Application**

This is a parabola, so it can either open upwards and have a min but not a max or open downwards and have a max but not a min. From the sign of the leading term (+1), we know this opens up. The minimum position of this parabola would be the point of symmetry. To find this, we ...

From the prompt, we know that: a) L = W + 2 b) Perimeter = 28 = 2L + 2W Where I call breadth W The easiest way to solve this system is by substitution. Plug in (a)'s value of L into b, yielding 28 = 2(W+2) + 2W. From here, isolate and solve for W. You should get W = 6cm. ...

Start by calculating the area of the desk. Area of a rectangle is base x height, 5.5 * 3.5 = 19.25 ft^2. Now calculate the area of the tile: .5 * .5 = .25 ft^2. To figure out how many tiles can fit, divide the area of the desk by the area of one tile: 19.25 / .25 = 77 tiles.

**math polynomials**

I'm assuming you're solving for x? Set each term in parentheses equal to 0, yielding: ~ 3x + 4 = 0 ~ x - 2 = 0 Now isolate x and solve. For the first equation, this would be subtracting 4 from both sides, then dividing by three. x = -4/3, 2
