 Question 333369: Find the slope of the line passing through the points (0, -4) and (-6, 7). Click here to see answer by solver91311(16872)

 Question 333392: I am attempting to solve the problem: 4x/3+6/4+(3x-2)/2 I have attempted to solve it below, but get stuck pretty quick... 4x/3+6/4+(3x-2)/2 -----> from the original problem i think you must use GCF on 6/4 which would change it to 3/2 4x/3+3/2+(3x-2)/2 -----> from here i am not sure wether to factor out the -2/2 or if i need to solve it as a quadriatic.... then from there find the LCD.... If somone could help I would be very greatful Thank you in advance Becca Click here to see answer by unlockmath(1599)

 Question 333536: Shawn is taking a science test. So far he answered 12 out of 15 questions correctly. then Shawn's teacher tells the class that there are addidtional questions on the back of the test. Shawn answers all of the questions on the back of the test correctly. If x represents the number of additional questions on the back of the test, which rational expression models the situation? a. 12+x/15+x b. 15+x/12+x c. 12/15*x d.12/15 I believe that the proper answer would be A. because he got 12/15 right, but then the additional (x) on the back he also got right, so 12x would stand for the questions he got right, while 15x stands for the total problems...I am wondering if someone could tell me if i am correct in this assumption... thanks in advance Becca Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30983)

 Question 336660: My question is in regards to an equation in my homework. x^2 + 18x + 58 = 0 I was to use the discriminant to assess the number of solutions and if they are rational, irrational or imaginary. I came up with: a= 1, b=18. c= 58 (18)^2 - 4(1)(58)) simplified to 324 - 232 = 92 Since 92 is not a perfect square my answer would be 2 different irrational solutions.
