**Algebra**

as usual, first just clear fractions: (n+9)(7) = 6(d+9) (n-7)(3) = 2(d-7) 7n+63 = 6d+54 3n-21 = 2d-14 7n-6d = -9 3n-2d = 7 Now can you solve for n and d?
*September 21, 2014*

**Algebra**

Just put the words into symbols. If the original fraction is n/d, then (n+9)/(d+9) = 6/7 (n-7)/(d-7) = 2/3 Now just solve for n and d.

**math**

If the base of the rectangle has length 2x, and height y, the area is a = 2xy = 2x√(1-x^2/16)(4) = 2x√(16-x^2) da/dx = 4(8-x^2)/√(16-x^2) so, max area occurs at x=√8, and the rectangle is 2√8 by √2

Clearly A is not continuous at x = -1, since the denominator is zero. The domain of √u is u >= 0. So, we need x+6 >= 0 The domain of sin x is all reals, so it doesn't affect the result. we know that lim sin(x)/x = 1, so sin(2x)/(2x) is 1. So, lim sin(2x)/x = 2...

The only question I see is whether x^3-2x^2-1+2 = 0 For some values of x, it is. I suspect a typo, since you have no x term, and two constant terms. Why not fix the typo and then ask your real question?

Do a little simplification first. As long as x≠5, (x^2-25)/(x-5) = (x-5)(x+5)/(x-5) = x+5 So, what you have is, f(x) = x+5 if x <= -1 2x-3 if x > -1 So, since 4 > -1, f(4) = 8-3 = 5 And, since -1 <= -1, f(-1) = -1+5 = 4
