 Question 354305: I need to factor 25c^2+1-10c This is what I've tried, but I'm just lost. 25c^2-10c+1=0 25c^2-5c-5c+1 (25c^2+1)(-5c-5c) (5c+1)(5c+1)-10c I don't think this is right. Please help me find what I'm doing wrong. Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6287)

 Question 354318: I am supposed to find all #s for which rational expression is unidentified. (q^3-6q)/(q^2-9) I got q(q^2-6)/(q+3)(q-3). Is this right? Does it mean the solutions that are unidentified are 3 and -3?? Because they would make the denominator zero? Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)

 Question 354585: If I throw a quarter from a balcony 78ft up and its travels 10 ft/sec how do I solve the equation s=-16^2+tv+k with t=seconds, v=velocity ft/sec, and k=height in ft? Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30993)

 Question 354730: We have been working on factoring trinomials and the problem I don't know how to solve is (x^2+4x-4)^2=64. I think what we're supposed to do is divide the exponent off both sides but I'm not sure. Were I get stuck is you're left with x^2+4x-4 on one side and that doesn't facter into two binomials.

 Question 355000: I need to solve the equation by completing the square. The following is my work but I get the wrong answer. Please let me know where I went wrong. x^2 - 6x +3 = 0 x^2 -6x = -3 x^2 -6x -3^2 = -3-3^2 x^2 - 6x = -12 (x-6)^2 = sqrt -12 x-6 = sqrt -12 x=6+sqrt -12 and x = 6 - sqrt-12 Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)

 Question 355007: Hello! I am trying to solve a problem and not sure if its correct. The equation is y= . I must write the quadratic equation into vertex form and find the vertex. What I did was factor out the 5 from the equation. So the result would be y=. To complete the perfect square trinomial, I made the equation y= or adding 1 to both sides. Moving the constants to one side the equation came out to be y= leaving the vertex to be (-1,6). Is this correct? Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)

 Question 355495: Hi, I'm being asked to solve for x by completing the square: -2x^2 + 12x - 6 = 0 -2x^2 + 12x = 6 < I moved the 6 to the other side x^2 - 6x = -3 < I divided everything by -2 to get the x^2 by itself x^2 - 6x + 9 = 6 < I took half of the coefficient 6 (6/2 = -3), squared it (9), and added it to both sides of the equation This is where I get stuck. I'm supposed to write the left side in squared form, but because there is a plus and minus, it wouldn't be just one factor squared. Would I write this as (x-3)(x+3)? If so, how would I take the square root of that? Thanks for any guidance you can provide! Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)

 Question 355844: Hi, I'm being asked to solve the inequality and graph on a number line. I'm new to this, so I'm wondering do I treat the inequality as an equation and complete the square? x^2 + x - 9 > 3 x^2 + x + .25 > 12 (x + .5)^2 > 12 x > -.5 +/- sqrt(12) Would this be correct? I'm getting x > 2.96 and x > -3.96, and not sure how I would put this on a number line. Any guidance you can provide is greatly appreciated! Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30993)
