**Geometry**

a + b + c = 1400 a + b + 600 = 1400 a + b = 800 using Pythagorean theorem a^2 + b^2 = 600^2 a + b = 800 a^2 + b^2 = 600^2 solve simultaneously I got a = 258.579 b = 541.421 or a = 541.421 b = 258.579

2) you are correct x - y = 4 add + y to both sides x - y + y = 4 + y x = 4 + y

**math(algebra 1)**

1)3x + y = 0, x - y = 4 Pick and equation, and solve for either x or y x - y = 4 x = 4 + y Substitute, x = 4 + y, for x, in the other equation and solve for y x = 4 + y 3x + y = 0 3(4 + y) + y = 0 12 + 3y + y = 0 12 + 4y = 0 4y = -12 y = -3 substitute y = -3 in either equation...

To have a remainder of 8, the divisor must be greater than 8. The only single digit greater than 8 is 9, so 9 must be the divisor. Since 8 is 1 less than 9, the dividend needs to be one less than a multiple of 9. Candidates are values of 3 digits, as the problem states. The ...
