1. ((n-5)/(n^2 - 2n -3)) / ((n-3)/(n^2 -4n - 5))
multiply both sides by (n^2 - 2n -3)(n^2 - 4n - 5) , sometimes called cross-multiplying

n^3 - 4n^2 - 5n - 2n^2+ 8n + 10 = n^3 - 2n^2 - 3n - 3n^2 + 6n + 9
-n^2 = -1
n^2 = 1
n = ± 1

Evaluate the following expression given the function. function: h(x)=12/x problem: h(x) = -2 solution: -2 = 12/x. 1/12 * -2 = 12/x *1/12 (mulitply both sides by 1/12 to get x by itself. -2/12 = 1/x -1/6 = 1/x (simplified -2/12) I

to calculate Ea i solved for slope and i got -7.6111x10^3 so i did this for Ea: 7.61x10^3 x 8.314/mole= 63.3 KJ/Mol but someone told me im missing the number 2.30? that i have to mulitply (2.30)(8.314)(7.61x10^3)=? which is right?
