No fair, can not cut two person desk in half :) Please check my reply below.

**math**

then subtract the 27 you have and buy 14

**math**

13 + 10 + 9 + 9 needed

**math**

No, 25/2 is not a two person desk need 13 desks for 25 people and 9 desks for 17 people TRICK QUESTION :)

**math**

Unless you cut them in half of course :)

**math**

well for 25 you need 12 1/2 but that is not possible so 13 +10 + 9 + 9 ----- 41 but we have 27 so we need 41 - 27 = 14

x^2 + y^2 = 61 x x^2 y^2 1 1 == 60 nope 2 4 == 57 nope 3 9 == 52 nope 4 16 = 45 nope 5 25 = 36 SCORE!!! 5 and 6 6 36 well then 25 of course 7 49 = 12 nope 8 too big

**Physics**

the rope is evidently mass less. total force up = total force down because nothing is accelerating. Total force down = m g Tension in rope is T on each side of mass horizontal component of T = T cos angle above horizontal right and left vertical component of T = T sin angle, ...

**Math**

agree and by the way: 726 = 2*363 ok but 2*363 = 2 * 3 * 121 BUT 121 = 11*11 :) so we have 1*3*11*11 =11^2 * 6 so sqrt(11^2 * 6) = 11 sqrt 6

**Math**

726 = 2*363 ok but 2*363 = 2 * 3 * 121 BUT 121 = 11*11 :) so we have 1*3*11*11 =11^2 * 6 so sqrt(11^2 * 6) = 11 sqrt 6

**Physics**

do this with north (y) and east (x) components the same way as the one you asked below.

**Physics**

y component = North = 3 + 5 sin 45 x component = East = 5 cos 45 d = sqrt (x^2 + y^2) tan T = y/x where T is angle above x axis 90-T = angle clockwise from north

x^2[4y^3dy/dx] +y^4[2x]+3dy/dx -12x^2 = -5sin x [4x^2y^3+3]dy/dx = 12x^2 -2xy^4-5sinx dy/dx =(12x^2 -2xy^4-5sinx)/[4x^2y^3+3]

**left out 3y term**

x^2[4y^3dy/dx] +y^4[2x]+3 -12x^2 = -5sin x 4x^2y^3 dy/dx = 12x^2 -2xy^4-5sinx -3 dy/dx=3/y^3-y/2x-(3+5sinx)/(4x^2y^3)

**calculus**

d/dx of x^2y^4+3y-4x^3=5cos x-1 ((( note - dx/dx = 1))) so x^2[4y^3dy/dx] +y^4[2x]-12x^2 = -5sin x 4x^2y^3 dy/dx = 12x^2 -2xy^4-5sinx dy/dx=3/y^3 - y/2x- 5sinx/(4x^2y^3)

**mATH..OHHHH NOOOOO PLEZ HELP I AM STRUGGLING**

In this link which MsSue gave you will find: http://www.mathsisfun.com/quadrilaterals.html That a square is also a rectangle and a rhombus.

**if a square, then a rhombus**

a square has 4 equal sides, so does a rhombus however a square has 90 degree corners a rhombus could have 90 degree corners, but not necessarily. therefore If a square, then a rhombus If a rhombus, maybe a square In other words, a square is a special case of a rhombus

**mATH..OHHHH NOOOOO PLEZ HELP I AM STRUGGLING**

Normal force is indeed 810 mass = normal force /g = 810/9.81 = 82.57 kg but it depends what your class uses for g. I use 9.81 but some classes even use 10m/s^2 (I guess they live on a slightly more massive planet :)

no, not distributive property of multiplication If the question were (5x+3)(8x+1) no plus sign, so TIMES then you could say 5x (8x+1) + 3 (8x+1) That would be distributive property.
