make everything into twelfths, so you have... 9/12k-2/12 =6/12 take out the 2/12 so... 9/12k=8/12 so now you divide 8/12 by 9/12 = 8/12*12/9 = 96/108 and simplify to 8/9 so k = 8/9

well... its still clear, that's your problem you won't "see" it because you can't really see depth using a light microscope and of course its transparent.

zero! when you multiply by five, you'll always get a number ending in 0 or 5. multiplying by two means if you get one ending in 5, it gets timesed by 2 and equals zero anyways try it with any number

the answer is 10squareroot 3. 25 root 24 simplifies to 50 root 6, then you divide the 50 by 5 and the root 6 by root 2 to get 10 root 3. hope that's clear enough

so basically you have a circle, right? and the equation of a circle is x^2+y^2 = r^2 so in this case your r, or radius is root of 64, or 8 if the radius of the circle is 8, use the formula for circumference of a circle (c=2pi(r)) to find the length of fencing so... c=2pi(8) so...

What bob said is right. you do y2 - y1 _______ x2 - x1 That is a fraction (-1,-6) are the y's and (3,-2) are the x's. -1 is y1 and -6 is y2. and the same goes for the x's.
