  2. try factoring the top.
    If this problem is possible, a factor is (5x-3)

    (5x-3)( 5x +or-6 to get 18)

    (5x-3)(5x-6)
    hey are you sure it was not
    25 x^2 -45 x + 18 ?????

  5. here are the answer choices:

    5x - 5 - 3/5x - 3
    5x - 8 - 18/5x - 3
    5x - 5 + 3/5x - 3
    5x - 14

  6. OH !!
    remainder allowed

    just do long division
    5x - 5
    with remainder of 3
    so

    5x - 5 and 3/(5x-3)

    my post is still on this page as algebra, could someone elaborate on what bobpursley tried to help me with. See your original post. I am guessing you are referring to your question 5)Simplify:(5x-4)^2 and your answer= 25x^2 - 16

  1. Calc again sorry

    4) The graph of y = (x)/(1+25x^2) for x is greater than or equal to 0 has a horizontal tangent at x = what. So what I did was find the first derivative. I did the quotient rule and ended up with x50x - 1+25x^2 ---------------
