f=p(c-1)-c(p-1) sOLVE FOR p f=pc-p-cp+c pc - cp = 0 So now we have f = -p+c Move "p" by itself. f-c = -p Now we multiply each side by -1 p = c-f Let's plug in values for f and c to check. We'll say: f=2 c=3 p=3-2 p=1 in this case.

How do you find the domain of log(x^2-4)? and how about this one? e^(3x+4)? Please help me! Well kristie, you might recognize log(x^2-4) = log((x-2)(x+2)) and then use a property of logs to see it as a sum, i.e.,
