3. ### Geometry

I got angle NMO = 61 same method as above, but correction for LMO = x + 32 Therefore, angle LMO = angle NMO angle NMO = angle LMN - angle LMO angle NMO = 5x - 23 - (x + 32) angle NMO = 5x - 23 - x - 32 angle NMO = 4x - 55 angle LMO = angle NMO x + 32 = 4x - 55 3x = 87 x = 29 ...
4. ### Geometry

Thank you. That's much better. If I am understanding your description, A line that bisects an angle divides it into two congruent parts. Therefore, angle LMO = angle NMO angle NMO = angle LMN - angle LMO angle NMO = 5x - 23 - (x + 3) angle NMO = 5x - 23 - x - 3 angle NMO...

What is LMN? For example, is this a line segment, triangle, or ? How did you get 45.75? You need to post a better explanation. Think of it like this. If you knew absolutely nothing about this problem could you solve it with just the info you posted?

7. ### math/ CIRCUMFERENCE of a circle

- find out how many feet are in 1 yard - divide 5280 feet by 2 (which would equal half a mile) - take that number and divide by how many feet the circumference of the wheel is

5 / 1/3 5 x 3 = 15 1/3 x 3 = 3/3 = 1 15/1 Then find the quotient, 15/1 = 15 IF you did have to divide 5 by 3/9 you would multiple 5 by the reciprocal of 3/9, so 5 / 3/9 = 5 x 9/3 = 45/3 Yes, you were correct IF you had to divide by 3/9.

14. ### math

(1/2)^x = 1152 rewrite as, 2^(-x) = 1152 Take the logarithm to the base 2 of both sides: -x log 2 = log 1152 -x = (log(1152))/(log(2)) Divide both sides by -1: x = -(log(1152))/(log(2)) x = - 3.061452/0.3010299 x = -10.1699

21. ### Pre-Calc

sqrt(x-6)+sqrt(x+10) = 8 sqrt(x-6) = 8 - sqrt(x+10) Square both sides x - 6 = (8 - sqrt(x + 10))^2 Expand out terms on the right hand side x - 6 = x - 16sqrt(x + 10) + 74 16sqrt(x + 10) = 80 Divide both sides by 16 sqrt(x + 10) = 5 Square both sides x + 10 = 25 x = 15
