Hi Mary, It is not clear what parts of the equation are under the radical sign, but I will guess from the type of problems I have seen. [] sqrt sign [y + 5] -1=2: Isolate the variable to one side by moving over numbers. [y + 5] = 3. Solve for y by removing the square root sign...

This is a logic problem. I will write out the steps below. Ja= Jack Ji= Jill Jill gives 50 to Jack, so she has 50 less and he has 50 more. And, this quantity of 50 more is equal to 5 times Jill's amount. So, now Jill has Ji-50 and Jack has Ja + 50 So, now just think how to...

Hello, you can not add vectors by just looking at the numbers. Vectors have magnitude and direction. So, you can only add North and South together, and you can also add East and West vectors together. So, think about vectors on an x-y plane. X is positive in Quadrants 1 and 4...

I think that you have given the distance between the two planks to be 2 feet, but I am not quite sure on this one. I think the technique would be to determine the surface area of that disc that would come in contact with the plank upon reaching the floor. I am quite intrigued ...

**Pre-calculus--EDIT TO POST ABOVE**

Oh. I realized that you must also pay attention to signs, which I failed to do. In the fourth Quadrant, sin is negative, while cos is positive. So, your new solution will be: So Sin(X + Y)= Sinx Cos y + Cosx Sin y So, Sin x= sin 36.9=-0.60 Cos y= 12/13=0.92 Cos x= 4/5=0.80 Sin...

So, since you know Cos x= 0.8, plug in to the calculator Cos inv of 0.8. Do the same for Cos Y= 12/13. X=36.9 degrees Y=22.6 degrees I think that where you are in precalculus, you have to know these trig identities. You MUST memorize them as they are the basis of good ...

You know that a pentagon has 5 sides and 5 angles. So, if you already have one angle you only have to solve for four more, which happen to be equal. So, first determine the total degrees sum of the interior angles in a pentagon by using the formula: 180(n-2) where n is the ...

Hello, at STP a standard gas has 22.4 L volume and 1 atm pressure. The atomic mass of one mole of O2 gas would be 32 g. And this is 16 g of 02 which would mean that there is 16g/32g = 0.5 mol O2 gas. So, if 1 mol of any standard gas at STP is 22.4 L then 0.5 mol would be 11.2 ...

Now (1,8) is a coordinate pair. 1=x value and 8=y value. So, plug these in to your equation: y=5x + 3 Is this true? 8= 5(1) + 3 8= 5 + 3 8= 8 Yes! It is true! The order pair does make the equation true! Hope this helps!

Can someone also tell me if this amount of voltage varies from one circuit to another? If so, how would you know? Is this an explanation for the bulb not lighting up in a simple circuit where the capacitor is after the switch (which is also right after the battery), but before...

**introductory physics concept**

I know that a capacitor does not allow charge to flow through it because its two conducting plates are separated by a dielectric (insulating material) but then how does a current flow through a circuit? Is it because at a certain DC voltage (almost like a breaking point), the ...

So, first determine how far the first few numbers are apart to figure out a pattern. Zero to 1/3 is 1/3 and 1/3 to 2/3 is also 1/3. 2/3 to 1 is also an addition of 1/3. So, it seems like you have established a pattern of adding 1/3 to every preceding term (number). Now, add 1/...
