Algebra 1
Looks good. Nice work. We'd much rather see that you are making an effort to solve the problems, rather than just getting someone else to do your assignments. Although, usually the earlier time is mentioned first, as was done in the problem.

Algebra 1
OK. You've given some possible answers. Which one do you think is right, and why?

Algebra 1 - and now, ...
oof - how about you propose some answers to these problems? Surely you must have some ideas.

do you understand the expressions for the current and proposed plans? Those are just symbols for the words that described the plans. Read the problem carefully, and wherever they give some information, write it down in numbers or symbols. To solve for m, just do the regular st...

for m minutes, current plan: 5.00 + .12(m-200) proposed plan: 30.00 so, we want solve 5.00 + .12(m-200) < 30.00 m < 409

In that case, he gets a $16.80 discount, making his base membership cost $67.20 SO, he gets an additional discount of $19.20 to bring his cost down to $48. At $5/referral, that would mean 4 referrals would do the trick. In symbols, we have 84(.8)-5n < 48 67.20 - 5n < 48 ...

can't say, without knowing whether or not he got any discounts.

well, a 5-gallon bucket costs the same as 4 1-gallon cans. So, if g <= 4, buy cans. If 4<g<=5, but the bucket. Naturally, if g > 5, buy enough buckets so that the remainder is less than 5. Then apply the above rule for the remainder.

5% of $84 = $4.20 20% of $84 = $16.80 Assuming no discounts, he needs n referrals, so that 84 - 5n < 48 Adjust that 84 according to how many discounts he achieved.

since the period is 60/3.6 seconds, and reaches a max at t=12 seconds, y = 35cos(2pi/(60/3.6)(t-12))+51 which agrees with your formula. You have found y at t=8 seconds, not 8 minutes.

compare the times. The time it took to cover 100km at speed s is 100/s That was 1/2 hour more than the time it took to cover 100km at the faster speed, s+10

(sum(r) for r=1..n)^2 - (sum(r) for r=1..n-1)^2 = n^3 well, we know that n ∑ r = n(n+1)/2 r=1 so, square that and we have n^2(n+1)^2/4 Sum to n-1 instead of n, and we have (n-1)^2 n^2/4 Subtract to get n^2/4 ((n+1)^2 - (n-1)^2) = n^2/4 (4n) = n^3

very good. B is the answer

well, I just said that "right" refers to angles, not sides. So, #1 and #3 are out. Other kinds of angles are acute and obtuse. So, rather than just guessing, why not check on the terms being used?

Math help, anyone?
actually, a right triangle contains a right angle, so it does not fit into the category of triangles classified by sides. We aren't talking about angles. So, questioner, just look up the terms listed, and see which ones only talk about the sides of a triangle.

well, no. If the product of some numbers is zero, then one of the numbers must be zero. We have (3s-4)(2s-3) = 0 So, we must have either 3s-4 = 0 or 2s-3 = 0 So, s = 4/3 or 3/2 Had you tried your guesses in the original equation, you would have seen they did not satisfy it.
