math/fractions
\$6 is 1/5 of the regular price. So the regular price is 5*1/5.

set up like this: 200*100*1*1 ----------- 1*1*2000*16 just do the math and your answer should come out right. if you are unsure whether the untis will cancel each other out as they did in this case then just right it all out each term its own fraction and see if the untis ...

Use parentheses to make things easier. [(x^2)-(4x/5)]*[(2/x)-2] [(x^2)*5/5-(4x/5)]*[(2/x)-2*x/x) (5x^2-4x) * (2-2x) --------- ---- 5 * x Multiply through to get: 10x^3+18x^2-8x -------------- 5x

math
12*10 is twice as much as 12*5 so 12*5 would equal one half of 12*10.

math
I would weigh the empty jar. then weigh the jar with marbles. Subtract the weight of the empty jar from the weight of the full jar. divide the remaining weight by 500 to find how much each marble weighs.

math
no because -1/2*-5= 5/2-8=-11/2

math
slope point is y-y1=m(x-x1) slope intercept is y=mx+b slope point: y+8=-1/2(x-5) solving gives us the slope intercept form of y=-1/2x-11/2

I don't understand the equation or i'd help u.

Algebra
I got -(5/24)xy-(27/20)x^3y^3+1.4y^3 Notice that the xy terms are of two DIFFERENT values. 1/8xy-1/3xy=-5/24xy That was your mistake.

Algebra
just add the terms together. you have two of each type of term. treat it just like a normal addition subtraction problem.

Algebra
Yes I would say that is the correct answer.

math
fraction to decimal: divide numerator by denominator. ex. 1/2=.5 decimals to percents: multiply decimal by 100. ex. .5x100=50

calculus-how to solve?
Could you explain how to solve? How would you do matrix algebra here?

so f(1)=a+b+c+d=0 f(-2)=-8a+4b-2c+d=3 f'(1)=3a+2b+c=0 f'(-2)=12a-4b+c=0 Now do I solve the system of equations for a,b,c,d? But is it possible to solve for this system of equations with 4 unknowns? Can I only substitute derivative into derivative and original into ...

no set formula. Just remember in problems with more than one variable first factor the first two terms and then the second two terms and look for a common factor(s) which will usually appear in the parentheses or outside. Then multiply this by the remaining terms to get your ...

The first one works like this: 8a^2+12ab-3b^2-2ab take the first two terms and notice the common multiple of 4 and a. they become 4a(2a+3b) Now take the last two terms and notice the common multiple of b. they become: -b(2a+3b) Now see the common factor in the parentheses? (2a...

2) first rearrang terms to solve x^2+5x+7x+35 x^2+12x+35 now what two numbers added together make 12 and multiplied make 30? those are your factors to go in the parentheses. Like this: x^2+12x+35 (x+?)(x+?) this is the answer then.

okay, yeah sorry I forgot to type my name in.

calculus-another Q
okay I get it now! But how do I find (C)find the intervals of concavity and the inflection points. I think I would take the 2nd derivative and set the numerator equal to zero and solve but i'm not quite sure how solve it.

calculus
(a) find the intervals on which f is incrs or decrs. (b) find the local min/max values of f. (c) find the intervals of concavity and the inflection points. f(x)=(lnx)/sqrtx I took the derivative and got 2-lnx/2x^3/2 take the values when f'(x) >0 I get 2-lnx > 0 2 >...

Algebra
yes it is (m+4)(2a-2)

Algebra
The first step is to remember that you can add exponents together. Then move everything into the numerator and add the exponets. this will give you your answer. (5x^-2)-(3y^-1) --------------- (original) (x^-1)+(y^-1) (5x^-2)+(x^1)-(3y^-1)+(y^1) (5x^-1)-3 (-2+1=-1, and -1+1=0)

calculus
So I put -1 in for dy/dx and got this equation: -2x^2y+2xy-x+y=0. Then would I solve for either x or y and substitute back in to the original equation to get a value for x and y?

calculus
Find all points on the curve x^2y^2+xy=2 where the slope of tangent line is -1. This is what I got. x^2y^2+xy=2 x^2*2ydy/dx + 2x*y^2 + x*dy/dx + y =0 dy/dx(2yx^2+x)= -2xy^2-y dy/dx = (-2xy^2-y)/(x+2yx^2) how do I finish from here? I need to know where the slop of the tangent ...

calculus
I need help simplifying this problem. f(x)=x^4/5(x-4)^2 f'(x)=x^4/5*2(x-4)+(x-4)^2*4/5x^-1/5 it is suposed to end up as this: 1/5x^-1/5(x-4)[5*x*2+(x-4)*4] but how do i get it to there? I need to see all the steps and how to get them. Thanks
