What is the best estimate for the product of 289 and 7

**Precalculus 11**

I have looked at this for 2 days & not understood but I think I get it... so you multiplied the top & bottom by -1 which made the top 5-2a but then you factored out the negative making it -(2a-5)/(5a-2) is that correct? Thank you so much for your help :)

**Precalculus 11**

(6a^2-15a)/(6a-15a^2) (3a(2a-5))/(3a(2-5a)) Multiply top & bottom by -1 -(5-2a)/(5a-2) is that correct? I have an answer here that's -(2a-5)/(5a-2) but I don't understand how to get there... Thanks :)

**Precalculus 11**

Ok, that makes sense :) thank you very much

**Precalculus 11**

If when simplifying 2 rational expressions you got: (-2(x-3))/2-x would you multiply the top & bottom by -1? Thanks!! :)?

**Precalculus 11**

Ok, thank you :)

**Precalculus 11**

When subtracting 1 rational expression from another, when I'm multiplying the top & bottom of the first term by the denominator in the second term is that number automatically negative because the whole term is being subtracted? ex: (8a-3b)/7a - (2a+5b)/4b is the 4b ...

**Precalculus 11**

That makes total sense, thank you very much :)

**Precalculus 11**

but why is the +1 on the planes side of the equation when it was the train that took an hr longer? Thanks again :)

**Precalculus 11**

It takes an express train 1hr longer to travel 240km than it does for a small plane to travel the same distance. If the plane travels twice as fast as the train, how fast does the plane travel? This is an ex., they lay out online but I'm confused about how they've laid...

**Precalculus 11**

Sorry, I meant to say any unknown variable in the denominator :o

**Precalculus 11**

OK, so then any unknown variable is negative, correct? Thanks a bunch again :) I appreciate your help

**Precalculus 11**

Hello, I'm hoping someone can explain this to me: I'm ID-ing polynomials; -x^7-5x^4+(3/x)= not a polynomial .25x^3+3.9x^2-(x/3)= polynomial Why is 3/x not but x/3 is? Thanks a bunch! :)

**Physics 11**

You're right that does make sense, I got confused & mixed up t & t. if I switch them I get 1.1s. Thank you :) I appreciate your help

A rose is placed 15.0 cm in front of a convex mirror of focal length 10.0 cm. I assume f= -10cm bc it's convex correct? giving me (1/-10)-(1/15)=(1/di)? Thank you

**Physics 11**

I am & I can't get it to match up... They haven't given an exact height, they just say "at least 4 squares high" but between 4 squares & my cap I can't get it to that point.

I found a tutorial on youtube, he says just to do it to any point on the mirror unless otherwise specified. So I think I'm good :) Thanks a bunch!

Well that's the thing, I know what it looks like & they even went step by step in the lesson. I know that my reflected ray has to have the same angle to normal as my incident ray but I don't understand how I'm supposed to know what angle my incident ray is supposed...
