 Question 168539: 3x^3+x^2-3x-1=0 (The ^3 and ^2 and exponents) I have tried to factor and pull out the x but I am getting confused with the two different power. I got x=-1, x=-1/3 and x=1 but i dont think i need three answers Click here to see answer by stanbon(57967)

 Question 168648: This particular problem is a more of a quadratic function. I truly wish I could give you some of my calculations but nothing I put together makes sense. I have tried multiplying by the squared denominator, using the square root property but nothing is working! Any help is very much appreciated!! "Solve each equation for the indicated variable"..... Solve for R (E > 0) E squared R is the numerator. (r+R) squared is the denominator. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57967)

 Question 169672: Hi, Here is my problem Nancy walks 15 m diagonally across a rectangular field. She then returns to her starting position along the outside of the field. The total distance she walks is 36m. What are the dimensions of the field. I have a good understanding of how to solve quadratic equations, but the word problems really confuse me. I made a diagram and used the pythagorean theorem to identify an equation, but it didn't factor in the end...Please help, if you could walk me through the steps that would be great thanks Click here to see answer by Mathtut(3670)
