 Question 632502: Ok here is the equation 2(x-4)-(x+2)=(x+2)(x-4) I am supposed to solve for x since none of the other equations work I am to put it into ax^2+bx+c=0 form. My question is how does it go from 2(x-4)-(x+2)=(x+2)(x-4) to x^2-3x+2=0? I know the rest of the problem this is the only part I am having difficulty understanding.

 Question 633145: I don not understand this question at all! 1.Suppose you are an event coordinator for a large performance theater. One of the hottest new Broadway musicals has started to tour and your city is the first stop on the tour. You need to supply information about projected ticket sales to the box office manager. The box office manager uses this information to anticipate staffing needs until the tickets sell out. You provide the manager with a quadratic equation that models the expected number of ticket sales for each day x. (x=1 is the day tickets go on sale). tickets=-0.1x^2+12x+11 1a.Does the graph of this equation open up or down? How did you determine this? 1b.Describe what happens to the tickets sales as time passes. 1c.Use the quadratic equation to determine the last day that tickets will be sold. 1d.Will tickets peak or be at a low during the middle of the sale? How do you know? 1e.After how many days will the peak or low occur? 1f.How many tickets will be sold on the day when the peak or low occurs? 1g.What is the point of the vertex? How does this number relate to your answers in parts e. and f? 1h.How many solutions are there to the equation ? How do you know? 1i.What do the solutions represent? Is there a solution that does not make sense? If so, in what ways does the solution not make sense? Click here to see answer by ewatrrr(10682)

 Question 633321: I think this is using the pythagorean theorem and I get really confused... A mason wants to be sure he has a right angle corner of a building's foundation. He marks a point 3 ft from the corner along one wall and another point 4ft from the corner along the other wall. If the corner is a right angle, what should the distance be between the two marked points?? I did the a^2 + b^2 = c^2 formula and plugged in 3^2 + b^2 = 4^2 and got an -7 as an answer. I know a negative # can't be it so that's where I need assistance. Thanks in advance. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57967)
