you have an AS sum = 4000 + 5000 + 6000 + .. sum(n) = (n/2)(8000 + (n-1)(1000) ) = 60000 n(8000 + 1000n - 1000) = 120000 1000n(7 + n) = 120000 n(n+7) = 120 n^2 + 7n - 120 = 0 (n - 8)(n + 15) = 0 n = 8 or n = -15, ignore the negative They can be late 8 days

I jumped to conclusion when I subbed in the 0 (4/(1/3) (x+1)^(1/3) from 0 to x = 12(x+1)^1/3 from 0 to x should have given me: 12 (x+1)^(1/3) - 12(1)^(1/3) = 12 (x+1)^(1/3) - 12 f(x) = 12 (x+1)^(1/3) - 12 f(26) = 12(3) - 12 = 24

Calculus
so you want f(x)= ? 4 (x+1)^(-2/3) dx from 0 to x = (4/(1/3) (x+1)^(1/3) from 0 to x = 12(x+1)^1/3 so f(26) = 12(27)^(1/3) = 12(3) = 36

Did you notice all the y values are perfect squares when x=1 , y = (1 + 8)^2 when x=2, y = (2+8)^2 when x=3, y = (3+8)^2 ... mmmhhhh?

Algebra
straight lines are usually written in the form y = mx + b, e.g. : y = 5x - 9 yours looks nothing like that furthermore, points are shown in the form (-7,4) repost so we know what you mean

Math
#5, can't see the graphs, but should have a y-intercept of 3, leaning to the right with a slope of 3 6. slope = (-10 -(-5))/(-9 - (-2)) = -5/-7 = 5/7

math
assuming simple interest: I = PRT 200 = P(.05)(4) P = 200/(.05(4)) = 1000

algebra
earning: x spending: y savings: x-y part of salary which is saving = (x-y)/x

Maths
number is the whole class ---- x number of boys = x-18 or number of boys = (1/4)x x/4 = x-18 times 4 x = 4x - 72 -3x=-72 x = 24 state your conclusion

Differential Equation
y=x^2+4x dy/dx = 2x + 4 checking in (xdy/dx)=x^2+y LS = x(2x+4) = 2x^2 + 4x RS = x^2 + x^2 + 4x = 2x^2 + 4x = LS Yes, it is

algebra
let the 3 numbers in AP be a-d, a, and a+d a-d + a + a-d = 33 3a = 33 a = 11 after the changes, the new numbers are: a-d + 2, a+1, and a+d+6 or 13-d , 12, and 17+d which are now is GP, so 12/(13-d) = (17+d)/12 144 = 221 - 4d - d^2 d^2 + 4d - 77 = 0 (d + 11)(d-7) = 0 d = -11 or...
