 Question 196896: I have a few problems I'm struggling with: 1: x^2 - 3x = -10 (directions say use quadratic formula, use radicals as needed). 2: (x+12)(x-8)(x+8)>0 (directions say to use one equality or compount equality) 3: 2x^2 - 5x +1 (evaluate polynomial for x= -4 4: (9x^8 - 3)(x^9 - 3) (use FOIL to find product) I thank you in advance for time spent in helping with these problems Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28715)

 Question 196949: A retangular field is to be enclosed by 500m of fence. What dimensions will give the maximum area? What is the maximum area? Solution: Let the length of rectangle = x So the width will be, w perimeter = or x+w=250 or w=250-x So the area,A(x) = A(x)= Area is maximum at the vertex if the parabola made by the equation, A(x)= vertex=[(-b/2a),A(-b/2a)] -b/2a = = 125 A(250) = = 15625 So Length,x =125m Width = 250-125 = 125m Maximum area = Click here to see answer by mathsteacher(28)

 Question 196953: find the equation of the axis of symmetry and the coordinates of the vertex of the graph of each function.
