since the bus catches up 175 km in 5 hrs, that's a speed difference of 35 km/hr. So, the bus went 10+35 = 45 km/hr Your solution is in error. It should be 225km/5 hr = 45 km/hr (Also, the units are wrong in your 1st line: 10km/hr * 5 hr = 50 km, not 50km/hr) another soluti...

What's all this nonsense with ;;;? Just use + signs! If you mean the sum of x^2 / ((x-1)+x+(x+1)) that's kind of weird, since it boils down to x^2/3x = x/3 Naturally, the sum will be infinity. And what do you mean "find the value of x"? We are adding up all t...

**Math help, anyone?**

very good. B is the answer

**Math help, anyone?**

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.

Pick any person. There are 16 people to shake hands with. Since there are 18 people, there are 18*16 shakes. But, counting this way, each shake is counted twice, once for each person. So, the final answer is 18*16/2

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.

set everything to zero, then you can factor. #4 6s^2-17s+12 = 0 You know the factors will look like (6x-?)(x-?) or (3x-?)(2x-?) So, since -17 is fairly large, we will probably have the first (6s-3)(s-4) gives -27s too big (6s-4)(s-3) gives -22s still too big (6s-6)(s-2) gives ...
