 Question 51085: I have been away from school the past few days because i was sick, and i am really not understanding these questions. i am also not sure if this is the right section to be asking this question in, but nothing else seemed to fit (x^2-64)/(5x) * (10x^2)/(x+8) 1. what i thought to do is factor the denomanator so it would be (x+8)(x-8)/(5x) * (10x^2)/(x+8) then the two x + 8's cancel out....once u have the final answer as (x-8)/(5x) * (10x^2)/1---do u just multiply?? and how do u multiply??

 Question 51621: im sorry i dont know how to make a radical sign, but the question is to simplify 100 over 9, its under the radical sign and another one thats 19 over and then a radical sign and a 19 under that sign, sorry if im confusing, maybe someone can show me how to make a radical sign...thanks for any help Click here to see answer by checkley71(8403)

 Question 51600: 2√ [48] + √[27] - 5√[12] I first looked at 2√[48]which tells me it's the square root of 48 so I then broke 48 down into factors. 48 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 3 I took out 2 * 2 = 4 and left 3 under the radical sign 4√[3] I the did the same for √[27] following the same steps and I got 3√[3]. where my problem comes in is when I get to 5√[12] how do I break this down. I also wanted to know am I doing this correctly. PLease point me in the right direction. I am having troubles seeing how to break these down. Click here to see answer by checkley71(8403)

 Question 51696: Hi, I've been working on this problem for a while, and am still getting an answer than doesn't work when I check/proof it. Here's how I've been trying to solve it: 5(3 - 2x) = 4(4x + 20) or 15 - 10x = 16x + 80 or -65 = 26x or x = -65/26 and then to proof 5(3 - 2(-65/26)) = 4(4-65/26)+ 20) or 5(78/26 - 130/26) = 4(260/26 + 520/26) or -260/26 = 3120 The problem is: "5(3 - 2x) = 4(4x + 20)" It looks so simple... what am I doing wrong?

 Question 52471: This is my first time here not sure I picked the correct topic but here it is the question that my online Contemporary Math Professor gave us for our Discussion Board. While the radical symbol is widely used, converting to rational exponents has advantages. Explain an advantage of rational exponents over the radical sign. Include in your answer an example of an equation easier to solve as a rational exponent rather then a radical sign. Thank you for you help. Lisa Click here to see answer by darq(90)
