 Question 204167: One principle used by the ancient Greeks to get shapes that are pleasing to the eye in art and architecture was the Golden Rectangle. If a square is removed from one end of a Golden Rectangle, as shown in the figure, the sides of the remaining rectangle are proportional to the original rectangle. So the length and width of the original rectangle satisfy L/W = W/L-W An artist wants her painting to be in the shape of a golden rectangle. If the length of the painting is 36 inches, then what should be the width? So far the only thing I have is 36/w = w/36-w. I can't find an example in my book that looks like this equation. I am missing a step somewhere. Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)

 Question 204189: 1) The sum of the squares of two consecutive integers is 613. What are the integers? Let x be one integer. Therefore x +1 is the next integer. x^2+(x+1)^2= 613 2)The length of a rectangle is four more than the width. If the area of the rectangle is 621 m2, find the width and length of the rectangle. Let w be the width. Therefore w + 4 is the length. W(w +4) = 621 Click here to see answer by RAY100(1637)

 Question 204501: I would like to know if I did these questions right. For the first one I have this: Do exponential functions only model phenomena that grow, or can they also model phenomena that decay? Explain what is different in the form of the function in each case. Yes they also model decay, for example you can use them to model the decay of radioactivity. The only difference is that there will be a negative index. Example of function of growth: y = ae^(kt) Example of function of decay: y = ae^(-kt) And for the second one I have: A cell divides into two identical copies every 4 minutes. How many cells will exist after 5 hours? f(t) = 2^(t/4) after 5 hours: 5 * 60 = 300 f(t) = 2^(300/4) f(t) = 2^75 f(t) = 3.78(10^22) Are these correct and if not can you please explain them to me Click here to see answer by alicealc(281)
