Logarithums?
I don't see why you have to convert it; they are indeed the same thing. I want to draw a graph for this, but I can't :-) In general, you can use the rule that ln(1/x) = -ln(x), so you can simply declare that and be done. I'll try to show an equivalence so it might ...

For more details, look up "Newton's law of universal gravitation" on Wikipedia, but the gist is that the force between the Earth and the Moon depends on the product of the masses divided by the square of the distance, and then thetre's a factor g that is ...

The brackets mean that you need to add the 8 and the 7 first. 8 + 7 = 15. Now multiply that 15 by 3, and multiply that answer by 2.

Algebra I
Call the numbers A, B and C We know A + B + C = 147 We are told that: B = 2 A + 4 (two times the first number and add 4) and C = 3 A - 5 (five less than three times the first number) This is called substituting. Now we can substitute (2 A + 4) for B whenever we see it. Using ...

Sorry, missed your followup earlier. I get the numbers you do, but something is funny with the question. h = 3.40t^3 anything with a t^3 term isn't acceleration; it's jerk. Constant jerk, in fact, that would have the chopper well into outer space in 60 seconds! Sorry, ...

How high is the chopper after 2.05 s? call it H H = 3.4 * 2.05^3 m Now from that height, it drops something. I assume we're not taking air resistance into account here, or the question would be much longer. I don't know how accurate the measuure your class uses for g, ...

Assume the particle starts at x=0. What is the position after 2.3 s? x = (50 * 2.3) + (10 * 2.3^2) That's how far it has travelled in 2.3s From there the average velocity is easy, I think

Scientists and mathematicians tend to avoid pie charts, because humans have a harder time judging angles and areas than line lengths. The Wikipedia page on Pie_charts, which I just visited, shows examples of a pie chart with apparently equal-ish segments that show up as ...

Is the question average speed? Assuming average speed, you must find total distance, then total time, then divide them Time is easy: 24 + 36 + 44 + 13 minutes So how far do you get driving 24.0 min at 63.0 km/h? 36.0 min at 45.0 km/h? 44.0 min at 49.0 km/h? 60 min at 63 kph ...
September 19, 2009

math
How you present the pie chart is kind of up to you, unless you were given specific instructions. You could put the numbers of deaths, or the percentages, or both. Apparently I can't put a link here, but if you go to the Wikipedia page Pie_chart you will see typical examples.

math
The numbers are close, but not exact since for example alcohol is about 12.6 rather than 13, but yes, you've clearly got it - but be careful; those numbers are degrees, not percent Alcohol is about 3.5%, and that makes about 12.6 degrees of a circle

math
Ayup! 54120 total deaths 510 from murder will be represented by about 3.4 degrees of the circle
September 19, 2009

math
A useful approach is to take a simpler case Suppose there were just 5 by murders, 30 by accidents, and 65 by tobacco How many would all the deaths add up to? What proportion of all deaths would be by tobacco? So there were 100 deaths, 65 by tobacco So tobacco would be 65% of ...

Well, you have a) one variable per entity, and they are b) discrete rather than continuous, and c) within a reasonable range; the largest is no more than 80 times as big as the smallest, so you won't go wrong with a simple linear graph - column or bar chart. If you had two...
