 Graphs/212123: State the equation of the line asymptotic to the graph y=5^x1 solutions Answer 160207 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-09-09 10:10:04 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! As x goes to negative infinity, y approaches 0. y=0 is an asymptote.
 Linear_Equations_And_Systems_Word_Problems/212084: Tanner has \$4.35 in nickels and quarters. If he has 15 more nickels than quarters how many of each coin does he have? Would it be 2x + 15= 4.35? Is that how I write the equation? Then how do I find both the amount of nickels and quarters?1 solutions Answer 160206 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-09-09 10:08:28 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let N be the number of nickels and Q the number of quarters. You will have two equations. The first relates the number of coins. "he has 15 more nickels than quarters" 1. N=15+Q The second is the total value of the coins. Each nickel is worth 5 cents. Each quarter is worh 25 cents. The total is \$4.35 or 435 cents. 2. 5*N+25*Q=435. Now substitute the expression for N into eq. 2 and solve for Q. Then go back to eq. 1 and solve for N. Re-post or email if you get stuck or need more help. Good luck!
 Average/212121: This question is from textbook Algebra 1 Hi, I know this may be a very simple question for you but I need assistance. Here is the question: A northern city had the following temperatures one winter week. Find the average temperature for the week: -7, -15, +2, +9, -1, +17, +23. Please help me with the answer and explain how the answer was computed. Thanks!!1 solutions Answer 160205 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-09-09 10:04:15 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Add the numbers and then divide by the number of samples. There are 7 samples. Average=Sum/N=(-7-15+2+9-1+17+23)/7=28/7=4
 Numbers_Word_Problems/212095: what 2 digit number is equal to twice the product of it's digits?1 solutions Answer 160204 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-09-09 10:02:12 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let the number be A*10+B where A and B are between 0 and 9 A*10+B=2(AB) 10+(B/A)=2B B and A must be multiples of each other for this equation to work. (2,4) and (3,6) are the only digits that are multiples. 10+(4/2)=2(4) 12=8 No, that doesn't work. 10+(6/3)=2(6) 12=12 Yes, that works. The number is 36. 36=2*(3*6)=36 . . . The other possible solution is 00, because 00=2(0*0) although I'm not sure that 0 is really a 2 digit number.
 Exponential-and-logarithmic-functions/212118: find the solution to the exponential equation correct to four decimal equations. 5+3^(5x)=131 solutions Answer 160203 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-09-09 09:54:10 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!5+3^(5x)=13 3^(5x)=8 5x=log(8,3) x=(1/5)log(8,3) log(8,3) is log 8 base 3. log(8,3)=log(8)/log(3) in base 10. x=(1/5)(log(8)/log(3)) or approximately x=0.379
 Numbers_Word_Problems/212119: the sum of the two digit number is 7, when you reversed the number it was increased by 27. what is the original number?1 solutions Answer 160201 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-09-09 09:51:52 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A*10+B is the original number where A and B are between 0 and 9. 1. A+B=7 B*10+B is the number with digits reversed. B*10+A=A*10+B+27 10B+A=10A+B+27 2.-9A+9B=27 Use eq. 1 to solve for A as a function of B. A+B=7 A=7-B Now substitute into eq. 2 and solve for B, -9(7-B)+9B=27 -63+9B+9B=27 18B=90 B=5 Now go back and solve for A. A=7-B A=7-5 A=2 The original number was 25, the reversed digit number was 52.
 Numbers_Word_Problems/212117: what two integers is 77 squared between?1 solutions Answer 160200 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-09-09 09:47:39 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!77^2=5929 5928 and 5930 are two integers that 5929 is between.
 Geometric_formulas/211898: This question is from textbook Geometry l=7, w-3, p=? P=2l + 2w 1 solutions Answer 160088 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-09-08 16:25:24 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!P=2l+2w=2(7)+2(3)=14+6=20
 Miscellaneous_Word_Problems/211909: Each day esterno drives 52 miles.

 Graphs/184549: I need help. It says to use the slope intercept form to graph the equation. y=4/5x-31 solutions Answer 138522 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-03-02 16:43:49 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First, graph the intercept, when x=0, y=-3. . . . Next use the slope. The slope is the number of units of rise (y) for each unit of run (x) for your line. So for every positive 1 step in x, you take a positive 4/5 step in y. More practically, for every 5 positive steps in x, you take 4 positive steps in y. . . . Start at (0,-3), 5 steps in x and 4 steps in y would then take you to another point (0+5,-3+4)=(5,1) . . . Graph that point and connect the line through those points.

 Probability-and-statistics/182871: one digit frin the number 8,969,911 is written on each of seven cards. what is the probabilty of drawing a card that shows a 8,9,or 6.1 solutions Answer 137276 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-02-20 09:43:01 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! That means there is one 6, one 8, two 1's, and three 9's (total of 7). P(8)=number of 8 cards/total number of cards=1/7 P(9)=3/7 P(6)=1/7 and although you didn't ask P(2)=2/7
 logarithm/182853: Please solve this equation: 1 solutions Answer 137275 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-02-20 09:36:15 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Here's a graph of both (in red) and (in green). The only time that is greater than is when x<0. At that point, both values are less than one and their difference cannot equal 18. When x>0, is always greater than , the difference cannot be 18. There is no solution.
 Exponential-and-logarithmic-functions/182675: 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. thank you for your help.1 solutions Answer 137165 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-02-19 09:13:05 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Its all in the sign of the exponent (assume a>0). quickly grows to as x gets large. quickly decays to 0 as x gets large. . . . The graphs are for a=1.
 Quadratic_Equations/182677: 5b. What three techniques can be used to solve a quadratic equation? Demonstrate these techniques on the equation "12x2 - 10x - 42 = 0." thank you for your help.1 solutions Answer 137164 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-02-19 09:07:58 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! 1. Quadratic formula, . . . 2. Factor the equation, First solution: Second solution: . . . 3. Graph and make reasonable guesses. Iterate until you find the answer. Although it's easy for this equation, it may not be the best method for every equation.
 Vectors/182408: Write an equation of a tangent to the curve at a given point: y=2x-1/x at P(0.5,-1)1 solutions Answer 136897 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-02-17 16:56:09 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The slope of the tangent line is the value of the derivative of the function at that point. First, find the derivative of the function. At x=0.5, Now you have the slope of the line, use the point-slope form of the line, . . .
 Radicals/182384: This question is from textbook how would you multiply this 1 solutions Answer 136894 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-02-17 16:37:32 (Show Source):
 Functions/182387: Which set of ordered pairs is not a function? A. (-1, 0), (0, 1), (1,2), (2,3) B. (-1, 0), ( 0,0), (1,0), (2,0) C. (1, -1), (1, 0), (1,1), (1,2) D. (-1, 1), (0,0), (1,1), (2,2) 1 solutions Answer 136893 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2009-02-17 16:35:49 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!C) A function returns a unique y value for each x value. The relationship in C) returns 4 distinct y values for x=1, therefore it cannot be a function.
