**PreAlegebra**

in these kinds of problems, the largest area is always achieved when the available fencing is divided equally among lengths and widths. In this case, the maximum area is found when the garden is 80x40.

**Math**

3/4 + 2/3 = 9/12 + 8/12 = ? maybe after playing, you can work on typing ...

**English**

#2 or #5 are often used. The rest, almost never. Some additional context would be needed to give rise to those usages.

**math**

see you earlier post for suggestions.

**English**

All are grammatical in some contexts. Though the distinction is fading away, "will" is used in the indicative mood "shall" is the imperative mood (reversed in first person)

**English**

No one would ever say #1.

**math**

you need to add the width w on both sides of the frame. Also the width, and as you know, area = length*width

**math**

at the very least, try using some value for x, say x=1. Does (2+7)^2 = (7-2)^2 ??

**math**

this is just an exercise in polynomial multiplication. You should recognize the difference of two squares. Even if not, you can surely attempt B and C. A garden cannot have negative sides, right? Charging in and demanding answers "now" will not get you much help here.

**Physics**

the acceleration is as usual: -9.8 m/s^2 due to gravity Considering h=0 when it was thrown, we have h(t) = 7.26t - 4.9t^2 = 3.3 I don't get your answers. In fact, I suspect a typo. What did you do?

**Maths**

well, the nth figure has n(n+1)/2 triangles, so check it out.

**geometry**

I think this will help you out: http://jwilson.coe.uga.edu/EMAT6680Fa2012/Szatkowski/SzatkowskiWU8/ASwriteup8.html

**math**

well, tan? = 12/18 now adjust for the new values.

**math**

If he can buy x expensive pencils that cost p each, then xp = 1800 (x+12)(p-40) = 1800 so, since x = 1800/p, (1800/p + 12)(p-40) = 1800 Now just solve for p

**Maths**

If you check this out, you will see that the velocity vectors form a right triangle, making things pretty easy. The final speed is just the hypotenuse of the triangle: ?(20^2+5^2) = ?425 ? 20.6 km/hr The direction is just (136-?)° where tan? = 5/20 the distance is of ...

using a common denominator of 84, they are 42/84, 56/84, 32/84 so, what do you think?

A. if x is cut from each corner, then each side of the square base is 28-2x. When the tabs are folded up, the height of the open box will be x. As you know, volume is length*width*height B. The area (outside only) is the area of the square base plus 4 sides of length 28-2x and...

**Pre-Calculus 12**

well, you need to get the x stuff isolated, so get rid of those exponents: (x-2) log3 = x log5 x(log3-log5) = 2log3 x = 2log3/(log3-log5) = log9/log(3/5) = log3/59

**Math**

why stop there? subtract the equations and you get 2b = 10 b = 5 so, a = -4 so, the equations is -4x^2+5x+3 = 0 as always, the axis of symmetry is at x = -b/2a, so it is x = 5/8 and the vertex is at (5/8,73/16) you can see this by writing it as y = -4x^2+5x+3 = -4(x^2 - 5/4 x...

**Trigonometry**

as usual, parentheses make a big difference. sina/(1+cosa) if you recall your half-angle formulas, you know that this is just tan(a/2)

**Algebra**

you'll get a better answer if you don't forget that "-1" on the right: [x(x+1)] + [(x-1)(x-2)] = -(x-2)(x+1)

**physics**

since there is no acceleration, there must be some friction.

**English**

#1 is bad English -- improper grammar #2 is grammatical, but not something I'd say #3 is best, because it offers an accomplishment as proof of intelligence.

If a box's base measures x by y cm, and its height is h, then all we can tell is that v = xyh You don't give enough information to pin down any one of the three variables.

**Maths**

In that case, look for a typo somewhere. The numbers you gave produce the given result.

**Maths**

the modulus of z1 = |2-i| = ?(2^2+1^2) = ?5 z1•z2 = (2-i)(-2+i) = -3+4i so, Re(z1•z2)/?5 = -3/?5

**math**

a) 2x-3y = 1 kx+5y = 7 There is no single value of k which determines a unique solution. In fact, since the slope of 2x-3y=1 is 2/3, any value of k which makes the slope of the other line different from 2/3 will work. So, if -k/5 = 2/3 then k = -10/3 and the line -10/3 x + 5y...

If you find this interesting, read about Gödel encoding, where each letter is a prime factor raised to a power. The nth letter is the nth prime to the power of the letter's place in the alphabet. For example, cat is represented by 2^3 * 3^1 * 5^20 You can see that the...

the domain of rational functions is all real numbers except where the denominator is zero since x^2-4x-5=0 when x = -1 or 5 ?(3-x) is undefined when 3-x < 0, its domain is x <= 3 so, the domain of f/g is (-?,-1)U(-1,3) because anywhere else either f or g or f/g is ...

I have no idea what (srt)x means. I'll take a guess it is sqrt(x) or ?x. If I got it wrong, maybe you can clear it up. h(x) = 5-1/?(x+1) g(x) = 1/?(x+1) f(x) = 5-x h(x) = (f?g)(x) = f(g) = 5-g = 5-1/?(x+1) If you need to fix things a bit, it should be clear now how to ...
