Factoring

(100)d^2-(57.3)d= 0

solve for d.

yes...I just can't figure out what number I'd use to factor this and it got bumped to the next page.

I thought it was an easy question but...

Thanks

  1. (100)d^2-(57.3)d= 0
    factor out d.
    d(100d)-57.3 = 0
    solve for d. One is d = 0
    100d = 57.3
    d = 57.3/100 = 0.573.

  3. I kept trying to factor out a number and the d, that's where I got cofused.

    well i'm stumped. i can't figure out how to solve this. solve for (x,y): 3/x + 2/y = 0 5/x - 1/y = 13 i can't graph it, and i can't use a calculator. i keep getting stuck on the second equation b/c i get 5y -13xy -x=0 and since 13
