I think I already explained this to you down below.

Calculus
1/a+1 + 1/a-1 I solved this out by multiplying the (a+1) by (a-1) and multiplying (a-1) with (a+1) To get (a+1)(a-1) as the denominator. Then I did the same with the numerators and got this: 1(a-1) + 1(a+1)/(a+1)(a-1) And I got 2a/(a+1)(a-1) But still sometimes this process ...

Multiplication of Rational Numbers: 1. Consider the factors of the numerator and of the denominator. 2. If there are factors common to the numerator and the denominator, reduce by dividing out the common factors. 3. Multiply all the numerators together and multiply all the ...

Thank you and yeah nonpermissible is another word for restrictions.

Calculus
Thank you so much Damon :)

Calculus
Simplify. State the nonpermissible values. (3t^2+3t-6/2t^2-2t-4)(4t^2+4t-24/3t^2+6t-9) This is the way I tried solving this: 3t(t-1)6(t-1)/2t(t-1)4(t-1)*4t(t-2)12(t-2)/3t(t+1)9(t-1) (3)(t)(t-1)(2)(3)(t-1)/(2)(t)(t-1)(2)(2)(t-1)*(2)(2)(t)(t-2)(2)(2)(3)(t-2)/(3)(t)(t-1)(3)(3)(t-...

Calculus - Reiny, Friday, December 23, 2011 at 6:59pm I read that as (4a^2-1)/(4a^2-16) * (2-a)/(2a-1) , my brackets are necessary = (2a+1)(2a-1)/( 4(a+2)(a-2) * (2-a)/(2a-1) the (2-a)/(a-2) are opposite, they will give you the -1 so.. = -(2a+1)/(4(a+2)) , again you have to ...

Calculus
Thanks Reiny =) But I to get everything clear, the 2-a and the a-2 cancel right? After I cancel those I am left with (2a+1) as the numerator:S Sorry I am just confused. Also did you factor out the 2a+4 and 2a-4 to get 4(a+2)(a-2)? Could you please explain step by step?

Thanks so much =)

Velocity and Displacement
A stone falls freely from rest for 8.0s. A. Calculate the stone's velocity after 8.0s. V2-V1+at V2 = (0) = 9.8(8.0) V2 = 78.4m/s B. What is the stone's displacement during this time? d = (v2 + v1)t/2 d = (78.4 + 0)/2(8.0) d = 313.6m

A brick falls freely from a high scaffold. A. What is its velocity after 4.0s? B. How far does the brick fall during the first 4.0s? I don't know what formula to use. I only have time, and I guess the first velocity would be 0s.
