y = k x 6 = 3 k k = 2 y = 2 x 2/3 = 2 x x = 2/6 = 1/3 ================= 25 = m (1.25) so m = 25/1.25 a = F/m = 35 /(25/1.25) = 1.25 * (35/25)=1.75 You could have written that down immediately by proportions but: 1. I am a physicist 2. You are doing algebra of direct variation.

I can get it in powers of cos but not first power sin^8 = sin^2 * sin^2 *sin^2 *sin^2 but sin^2 = 1 - cos^2 sin^2*sin^2 = 1-2cos^2+cos^4 (1-2cos^2+cos^4)^2 = 1-4cos^2x+6cos^4x-4cos^6x+cos^8x

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

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 :)

Well, we will run out of fossil fuel first of all. It is by definition not "long term" because we are using it up faster than plants are turning into coal and oil and even gas. However there are more immediate obvious problems such as air pollution and land pollution...

If it is exactly the same distance from each speaker then there is no difference in path length between the two paths and the signals superimpose to give a maximum.

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.

You do not show any multiplications or divisions in your given problems. All you can do is collect like terms. (5x+3)+(8x+1) is the same as 5x+3+8x+1 which is 13 x + 4 =========================== similarly (2t^2-3t)-(7t^2-5t) = 2 t^2 - 3 t - 7 t^2 + 5 t Note that +5 t due to ...
