19.9% - percentages are always out of 100 so this is the same as saying the following: 19.9/100 - however it's not proper form to be using a decimal in a fraction so what you could do it move the decimal over to the right for both the numerator and denominator: 199/1000 - ...

Well 3 is a whole number so you know your ones value is 3. Then look the 1/2. 1/2 is = 0.5. So 3 1/2 is 3.5 as a decimal.

This might be silly but one thing that immediately came to mind was the fact that our eyebrows catch our sweat so that it does not go into our eyes. Maybe eyebrows could be more thicker due to increased sweating in the warmer environment.

**math i need help plz!**

I've been working on this for a while but I cant seem to get anywhere with this. I created this equation. 360(x) + 270 (y) = $ 45,990 360 (3x/4) + 270 (x/3) $27, 630 There's a starting point. If I figure out how to solve this I'll post.

**algebra 2**

Ok so what you would do in this scenario is fill in the sides for a and b. 10^2 + 7^2 = c^2 ( c is the diagonal AKA the hypotenuse) 100 + 49 = c^2 149 = c^2 sq root of 149 = c 12.21 = c (this # is rounded) But that's what your diagonal should be.
*March 29, 2011*

**algebra 2**

You want to use Pythagorean theory here. So a^2 + b^2 = c^2. a and b would be the 2 side length and then solve for c. Do you think you can take it from here? If you tell me what you got as a answer I can figure it out and let you know what I got.

In order to find the length of [AM], you want to look at only half of this triangle. Half of an isosceles triangle is a right angle triangle! Therefore you can use Pythagorean theory: a^2 + b^2 = c^2 (hypotenuse) Do you think you can solve this from here?

I just realized the long division is completely unnecessary. You could just simply factor the x out. -_- x^3=5x^2+4x = x(x^2-5x+4) = x(x-1)(x-4) Hope this makes more sense. Ignore what I did above. It's completely wrong.

For this equation you should find that (x+1) is a factor. If you sub 1 in for the x-values you should get a result of zero. So next you do the following: (x+1) divided by (x^3-5x^2+4x) - First you divide the (x^3) by (x+1) and you find that in order to get x^3 you must ...
