**Math**

Just do hex long division, as at http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/63375.html However, it is sometimes easier to convert to decimal, divide, and convert back.

**Algebra ll**

division by zero is not defined. What is 12/0? 0/0? So, for a rational function, the domain excludes any values where the denominator is zero, because the domain is the set of values of x for which f(x) is defined. For f(x) = (x^2 - 25)/2 the domain is all real numbers; there ...

**Simplify this Expression?**

You can do it using the distributive property as J and Ms Sue did, or you can use it implicitly, working term by term z-2z+4z+6 -z+4z+6 3z+6 Their answers basically factored out the z, as in z-2z+4z+6 (1-2+4)z+6 (3)z+6 3z+6

**Trigonometry**

Just do things as you normally would. tan 28 = 0.5317, so you have (20-x)/6.11 = 0.5317 20-x = 3.25 x = 16.75 Don't forget your algebra I just because you're taking trig now!

**Math**

as with all fractions, multiply top and bottom by the GCD (a-1)(b) to get 1/(a-1) + 1/b = c b + (a-1) = c(a-1)(b) b + a - 1 = abc - bc a - abc = 1 - b - bc a = (1-b-bc)/(1-bc) = 1 + b/(bc-1)

The curves intersect at (4,0) and (1,3). You don't specify the axis, so, assuming the x-axis, using shells, the volume is v = ∫[0,3] 2πrh dy where r = y and h = (5-(y-1)^2)-(4-y) v = 2π∫[0,3] 3y^2 - y^3 dy = 27π/2 Using washers, we have to break ...

**Algebra HELP!**

No ideas on any of them? Look for groupings of like expressions, difference of two squares, etc. For example, (g) is (x^2-y^2) + x + y (x-y)(x+y) + (x+y) (x-y+1)(x+y)
