It seems that point B is irrelevant. <AOC = 90 <AOD = 135 So, <COD = 45 As for finding x, it seems that <COB + <BOA = 90 3x-7 + (-2x+4) = 90 x-3 = 90 x = 93 But that makes no sense, since then <BOA is negative. If you lay out the diagram, with point A at the ...

**Math**

not likely. How did you figure it? If x=138, -2x+4 = -272 not likely one of the angles

**Math**

Huh? If the points A,B,C,D are in sequence, then since <AOC = 90, <DOC = 135-90 = 45 If the angles are in some other order, then you may have to find x first.

You say the pool is 12m wide, but both ends are only 10m wide. I'll assume that's a typo, and the pool is 10m wide. The side view is a trapezoid with bases of 1.3 and 3, and an altitude of 40. So the volume of the pool is (1.3+3)/2 * 40 * 10 = 860 m^3 The volume of ...

hmmm. I see a couple of straight lines, and what may be a point. I fail to see any circles or other curves involved. Maybe a little more explanation will help. Do you want the equation of a circle whose center is on y=1/3x+6, and is tangent to y=x+20? If so, where does (11,9) ...

You have a sum of an arithmetic progression, where the common difference is 7. 50/2 (2a+49*7) = 12075 a = 70 70+49*7 = 413 So, numbers range from 70 to 413

f(1) = 0/0, so (x-1) must be a factor of both the numerator and denominator. f(5) = 0, So (x-5) is a factor of the denominator only. f(2)=0, so (x-2) is a factor of the numerator only. f(x) = a(x-1)(x-2)/(x-1)(x-5) for x?1 f(x) = a(x-2)/(x-5) as x->1, f(x) -> -1/9, so a...

since the diagonals are equal, 5x+2 = 4x+7 x = 5 Knowing the diagonals does not help in determining the lengths of the sides. However, if we go with integers, then the halves of the rectangle are 3-4-5 right triangles. So, the perimeter is 2(3+4) = 14.
