**Geology**

I think it is by the fossils found in rock strata.

**Earth Science**

Now, I think it might be Potassium.. I just saw anothr post with K -40 has a half life of approx. 1.25 billion years.

**Earth Science**

You want a long half-life for older rocks. I think it may be argon, but you need to lookup the half-lives of each of them. You can probably google it.

**physics**

A - B = +5 A - C = -16 Do between B-C we must have -21

**quadrilaterals**

The sum of the angles = 360 paralleograms have pairs of equal angles. You have 110 degrees so far. Now can you find the other two angles?

**science**

a higher velocity or more mass??? is this is what you are looking for?

**math**

What do you need to know about percents? Percent means out of 100 like 20% means 20/100 or .20

**physics**

I would say no force since it is in free space. I am not 100% sure.

**math**

Add up all of the scores and then divide by 5 since you have 5 scores.

**algebra**

The y-intercept is easy in this form of the equation. Y = mx + b b is the y-intercept. Written (0,1) To find the x - intercept let y = 0 in the equation and then solve for x. (x, 0) is the form of the x - intercept.

**finance**

Just multiply 7100 times .109 since it is the apr.

**math**

If you sliced 12 and you need 30 total. that means you have 18 left to do and you can do 2 per minute. How many minutes will it take? I will check your answer.

**math**

Sorry, I don't. I am on her quite often.

**math**

Yes. that is it. I hope it makes sense to you.

**math**

(-8)(-2) that takes care of the coefficents = 16 (x^2)*(x^1) = x^3 (y^1)(y^3) = y^4 Now, put them all together and you will have the answer.

**math**

Multiply the coefficients (numbers in front). for the letters with exponents. You keep the letter and you add the exponents. Remember that y is y^1 Try it and I will check it for you.

**Science**

It depends on what you are going to use to compare the difference. suppose there were 20 people and 5 remembered better if they heard the numbers and 15 remembered better if they saw them. That could be a bar graph. If you were going to use a % right, you might want to make a ...

**Science**

Could you use a bar graph? One bar for eyes and one bar for ears??

**algebra**

Yes 5^3 or 125. I am not sure how your teacher will want the answer.

**algebra**

so keep the base of 5 and add the exponents for the multiplication. that gives you 5^11/5^8 For division, keep the base of 5 and subtract the exponents. What is your final answer?

**algebra**

By using the law of exponents, we cannot combine anything because the terms are all different.

**algebra**

You can't simplify because there are no like terms. Do you need to factor this?? or are you just being asked to combine like terms. If you have to factor it. that is possible. Let me know.

**Math**

You are welcome.

**Math**

Yes. Very good.

**Math**

of means multiply Multiply 3/5 times 65

**math**

We can start to take it apart using the law of logs. ln x^3 + 1/2 ln(y^4 - z^10) 3lnx + 1/2 (4)(lny)-1/2 (10) ln z Can you finish from here. Remember exponents become multiplications Multiplications can be changed to additions and Divisions can be changed to subtractions.

**math**

Let t = ten's digit Let x = one's digit t + x = 13 2t= x-1 or 2t+1 = x You can substitue for "x" t + 2t + 1 = 13 3t = 12 t = 4 find x = 9 so we have 49

**Math**

Right. The radius is 2.5 So you can see that the diameter is double the radius. or you can say the radius is 1/2 the diameter.

**Math**

The diameter is the distance across the circle and the radius is the distance from the center of the circle to the edge of the circle. I will be happy to check your answer.

**Math**

50% right.

**Math**

You can add the whole numbers and you can add the fractions. When you get 3/3 that can be changed to 1 which can be added to the sum of your whole numbers. I will check your answer.

**sci**

Force = G times (m1 x m2)/r^2 If you double the masses your have 4 times the force. since the distance is the same and the "G" is a constant.

**math**

You are welcome.

**math**

Correct. You have to be careful with the signs.

**math**

-3x -3x = -6x this is the same as -3x + -3x + -6x You are right, but missing the middle term. -3x + 3x = 0 that isn't what you had here.

**math**

You have to combine like terms. When you add you keep the variable(letter) with its exponent and and the coefficients (numbers in front) 3x + 5x = 8x You are going to combine your x^2 terms your x terms and your constants. Show me your answer and I will check it.

**math**

Right. Glad it makes sense.

**math**

NO.. p/8 40/8

**math**

no, you would divide. Let's say the perimeter is 40? Would it make sense to say a side is 320 or does it makes sense to say a side is 5?

**math**

no we have p = perimeter You want to use p and 8. Do you multiply or divide?

**math**

An octagon has 8 sides. Perimeter = 8 times length of 1 side.

**math**

Supplements add to 180 What is angle z? Complements add to 90. what is the complement of z?

**math**

18 miles is right.

**math**

you can cover 3 miles every 20 minutes You are walking for 12o minutes. 3 miles/20 minutes = x miles/120 minutes. The denominator of 120 is 6 times bigger than the denominator of 20. so you should go 6 times farther.

**math**

walking rate = 1/20 jogging rate = 3times or 3miles/20 minutes 2 hours = 120 minutes Can you finish from here?

**computer science**

I bet you could google this.

**Math**

tens digit + ones digit = 11 tens digit = 3 + ones digit t + x = 11 t = 3 + x substitute: 3 + x + x =11 3 + 2x = 11 Solve for x which represents the one's digit. Then find the tens digit.

**math**

This is a right triangle problem. c^2 = a^2 + b^2 c^2 = 8^2 + 15^2 remember to take the square root in the last step to find c.

I answered earlier. Let x = 0 and find y Let y = 0 and find x. Remember the pairs are written (x,y)

**Applied Calculus**

This is a chain rule. (the derivative of the whole thing times the derivative of what is in the parenth.) first derivative: (1/2)(5) (5t+4)^-1/2 Take the derivative of the above for the second derivative. Take the derivative of that answer again and you will have the 3rd ...

**OAA math *wolf***

Tell me what you think the answer is...

**OAA math *wolf***

If x = 0 find y. If y = o find x. That will give you the ordered pairs. Any time you have a MC question, you can check the values in the problem if you are stuck. (x,y) is the correct order in the ordered pairs.

**Math**

I would say recheck her work since the estimate and actual are so different from each other.

**Math**

compare y = x with y = mx+b m = slope What number is in front of the "x" in your equation?

**college algebra**

The best way to do it is using calculus, but you are in college algebra. You are looking for length + width + width = 1000 feet because you don't need any for the river side. L + 2w = 1000 or L = (1000 - 2w) A = lw A = (1000-2w)(w) A = 1000w - 4w^2

**trigometry**

It is always good to draw a picture. You have a right triangle with hypotenuse of 16. The side opposite the angle that you are looking for is 5. If you take the opp/hypotenuse = sine of the angle 5/16 = sin of angle. You can use your calculator to find the value of the angle. ...

**Algebra**

Solve for b? add a -1/6 to both sides of the equation. You have to combine -1/6 and -1/3 You need a common denomiator of 6.

**Applied Calculus**

I agree with your first derivative. Now, start with 10/(7x+10)^2 and take the derivative again. Denom times deriv of numerator = 0 since deriv of 10 = 0 minus the numer time the deriv of the denomin. - 10(2(7x+10)7) this is the chain rule You need to simplify this expression ...

**Math - Help with radicals please**

It seems that you need a lesson in everything you need to know about radicals. #3 You can't combine radicals unless they are the same like 3x - 2x = 1x So yo have to write 75 xy as 25(3xy) you can take the square root of 25 with the 3xy left under the radical. for 27x^3y ...

**Math - Help with radicals please**

do you have any idea how to do any of these or where to start??

**Algebra**

I didn't get A, Did you make a Venn Diagram with two overlapping circles. The 31 goes in the overlap. for band alone subtract the 31 from 89. For the sports alone subtract the 31 from 215. Add up all of the numbers in the 3 parts of the circles and subtract from 464.

**Math**

Negative signs and subtraction signs are really the same thing. You can write -8 - 6 negative 8 subtract 6 which is the same thing as writing -8 + -6 negative eight plus negative 6. In both cases, you get a -14 as the answer.

**Math**

17 -12 is a subtraction problem 4w -w is a subtraction problem.

This is an order of operation question. My Dear Aunt Sally. Multiplication and Division are done first Addition and Subtraction are done second. Otherwise work from left to right. 3 + 7 - 7 + 3 - 3 x 3 3 + 7 - 7 + 3 - 9 Now just combine from left to right.

**Please help quick**

You are working with the sum of two squares that you cannot factor and the difference of 2 squares that can be factored. Perhaps your teacher just wants you to show that one factorization.

**Algebra**

Did you start the problem? You have to begin by factoring.
