For example: A square field had 3 m added to its length and 2m added to its width. The area is 90 m2(squared). Find the asked by Michelle on April 29, 2009 90. Physics An object of mass M = 884 g lies on a table. It is free to move along a horizontal, frictionless surface. This object is connected to a second object that hangs along the slide of the table by a massless string that runs over a pulley and connects both asked by Nala on October 14, 2009 91. algebra An airplane encountered a head wind during a flight between Joppetown and Jawsburgh which took 5 hours and 30 minutes.
