We do not do your work for you. Once you have attempted to answer your questions, we will be happy to give you feedback on your work. Although it might require more time and effort, you will learn more if you do your own work. Isn't that why you go to school?

1. (12,8), (4,2).
d^2 = (4-12)^2 + (2-8)^2 = 100,
d = 10.

2. (3,1), (7,-5).
Xo = (3+7) / 2 = 5.
Yo = (1-5) / 2 = -2.
M((Xo,Yo),
M(5,-2).

3. 4Y = X^2 + 4.
Divide both sides by 4:
Y = (1/4)X^2 + 1,

h = Xv = -b/2a = -0 / (1/2) = 0.

k = Yv = (1/4)0^2 + 1 = 1.

V(h,k) = V(0,1).

F(0,Y2),
VF = Y2 - k = 1/4a,
Y2 - 1 = 1/1 = 1,
Y2 = 2.

F(h,Y2) = F(0,2).

4. X^2 + 10X + Y^2 = 75.

Complete the square:
X^2 + 10X + (10/2)^2 + Y^2 = 75 + 25,
X^2 + 10X + 25 + Y^2 = 100,
The 1st 3 terms is a perfect square.
(X+5)^2 + Y^2 = 100,
(X+5)^2 + (Y-0)^2 = 100 = r^2,
Eq: (X-h)^2 + (Y-k)^2 = 100 = r^2.
C(h,k) = C(-5,0).

r^2 = 100.
r = 10.

5. X^2 + Y^2 - 4X + 12Y -6 = 0.

Complete the square:
X^2-4X+(-4/2)^2+Y^2+12Y+(12/2)^2-6=0,

X^2-4X+4 + Y^2+12Y+36-6=0+4+36,
(X-2)^2 + Y+6)^2 = 40+6=46

This is the Eq of a circle.

6. Eq1: x^2 + y^2 = 64,
Eq2: x^2 + 64y^2 = 64.

Multiply both sides of Eq1 by -1,and

-X^2 -Y^2 = -64
X^2 + 64Y^2 = 64.
Sum: 64y^2 = 0,
Y = 0.

Substitute "0" for Y in Eq1:
X^2 + 0^2 = 64,
X = +- 8.

Substitute +-8 for X in Eq2 and solve for Y in each case:
(8,0), (-8,0).

7. Substitute -2 for X and solve for Y.
Y = -29.

8. Y = X^3 + X^2 - 14X - 24.
The zeroes are the points where the graph crosses the X-axis(Y=0).

By trial and eror,a value of X(-2) was found that gives a Y value of 0 when
plugged into the given Eq.

(-2,0).
X = -2,
X+2 = 0.

Therefore, x+2 is a factor of the Eq.
So we divide the Eq by x+2 using long-
hand(synthetic) division and get:

X^2 - X - 12,
We now have Y = (X+2)(X^2 -X - 12).
Then we factor the Quadratic and get:

Y = (X+2)(X-4)(X+3).
X= -2,4,and -3.

9. Use same procedure as prob. 8 and
get: X = -3,-1, and 2.
