Assign some variables and formulate your equations.

x and y are the numbers.
and .
Solve either equation for one variable and substitute the expression into the other equation. Solve this resulting equation. Now, solve for the other still unknown variable.

Question 752217: Find m: 2x/m + 3a/x = 5/c

Find m: 2x/m + 3a/x = 5/c
-----
2x/m = (5/c)-(3a/x)
---
2x/m = (5x-3ac)/(xc)
---
m/(2x) = (xc)/(5x-3ac)
---
m = (2x^2c)/(5x-3ac)

Question 752137: Solve each equation by factoring.
2p2+128=-32p

Answer by lenny460(775)   (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website!
Solve each equation by factoring.
2p2+128=-32p
I will assume 2p2 is 2p^2
Add 32p to each side of the equation.
2p^2 + 128 + 32p = -32p + 32p
Combine like terms:
-32p + 32p = 0
Therefore:
2p^2 + 128 + 32p = 0
Rearrange the above equation.
2p^2 + 32p + 128 = 0
Divide each term by 2
p^2 + 16p + 64 = 0
Factor the trinomial:
(p + 8)^2
Therefore:
(p + 8)(p + 8) = 0
p = -8

Question 752039: A card is drawn from a deck of cards and replaced. A second card is then drawn from the deck. Are these events independent or not independent?
Answer by solver91311(16897)   (Show Source):

Does the outcome of the second trial depend on the outcome of the first trial? Does the probability that you will draw a specific card on the second draw change depending on what was drawn on the first card, given that the first card is replaced in the deck before making the second draw?

3 ( log 5 - log 3 ) - ( log 5 - 2 log 6 ) = 2 - log n , find n.
.
3 ( log 5 - log 3 ) - ( log 5 - 2 log 6 ) = 2 - log n
3log 5 - 3log 3 - ( log 5 - 2 log 6 ) = 2 - log n
log 5^3 - log 3^3 - ( log 5 - 2 log 6 ) = 2 - log n
log 125 - log 27 - ( log 5 - 2 log 6 ) = 2 - log n
log 125 - log 27 - ( log 5 - log 6^2 ) = 2 - log n
log 125 - log 27 - ( log 5 - log 36 ) = 2 - log n
log 125 - log 27 - log 5 + log 36 = 2 - log n
log 125/27 - log 5 + log 36 = 2 - log n
log 125/(27*5) + log 36 = 2 - log n
log (125*36)/(27*5) = 2 - log n
log (125*36)/(27*5) = 2 - log n
log (125*36)/(27*5) - 2 = -log n

Because of replacement the selections are independent.
-----
P(red, then yellow) = (4/10)(1/10) = 4/100

Question 751408: A parabola shaped tunnel is 10m high at the centre and spans 18m wide at the base. A 7.5 m high vehicle needs to use the tunnel;, what is the maximum width of the vehicle that can fit through the tunnel?
I need to draw a diagram to represent the tunnel on a coordinate number plane , and find the equation of the parabola. using algebra and coordinate geometry to determinate the maximum width of the truck
I try to solve this problem many times but my results seems to be wrong, please help me I'm so stuck
Ally

Answer by jim_thompson5910(28598)   (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website!
The parabola is upside down and has the vertex at (0,10). Notice how this is the highest point.

The two roots are (-9,0) and (9,0). The horizontal distance between these two points is exactly 18 m. Basically how I found these two points is that I divided the distance of 18 m in half to get 9 m, then you walk 9 m in each direction to land on (-9,0) and (9,0)

So we have the three points: (0,10), (-9,0) and (9,0)

The first point is the vertex. The first point is also the y-intercept.

The next two points are the x-intercepts or roots.

Let's use the roots to find the equation

x = -9 or x = 9

x+9 = 0 or x-9 = 0

k(x+9)(x-9) = 0 ... for some fixed number k (we don't know it yet, but we'll find it soon)

k(x^2 - 81) = 0

The equation so far is y = k(x^2 - 81)

Since the y-intercept is (0,10), we can plug in x = 0 and y = 10 to find k

y = k(x^2 - 81)

10 = k(0^2 - 81)

10 = k(0 - 81)

10 = k(-81)

10 = -81k

-81k = 10

k = 10/(-81)

k = -10/81

So the equation that models the tunnel is which distributes to and that simplifies to

So the equation in standard form is

Now we're told that the truck is 7.5 m, so this means that the height y is 7.5, so we can plug in y = 7.5 and solve for x to find the clearance

or

or

So when or , the height is exactly 7.5 m, which means that the truck's width must be less than 2*4.5 = 9 feet across so it can fit in the tunnel.

A process to eliminate terms of y.

Note each entire equation is being multiplied.

We may sometimes apply commutative property of multiplication,

Subtract one equation from the other equation:

And this is how we have the term, "elimination method".

In this general case, symbolically giving

Question 751133: What is an algebra

Answer by Edwin McCravy(8909)   (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website!
From wikipedia:

In mathematics, an algebra over a field is a vector space equipped with a
bilinear product. An algebra such that the product is associative and has an
identity is therefore a ring that is also a vector space, and thus equipped
with a field of scalars. Such an algebra is called here a unital associative
algebra for clarity, because there are also nonassociative algebras.

In other words, an algebra over a field is a set together with operations of
multiplication, addition, and scalar multiplication by elements of the
underlying field, that satisfy the axioms implied by "vector space"
and "bilinear".[1]

One may generalize this notion by replacing the field of scalars by a
commutative ring, and thus defining an algebra over a ring.

Because of the ubiquity of associative algebras, and because many textbooks
teach more associative algebra than nonassociative algebra, it is common for
authors to use the term algebra to mean associative algebra. However, this does
not diminish the importance of nonassociative algebras, and there are texts
that give both structures and names equal priority.
