 test/335456: A laborer uses a crowbar 4 feet long.If the fulcrum is 7 inches from one end of the bar,how heavy a weight can be move by exerting a force of 175 pounds?1 solutions Answer 240530 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-08-26 22:54:13 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!This is more of a mechanics(physics) problem rather than algebra problem. The crowbar provides mechanical advantage which multiplies the force according to the ratio of the two lengths. lb . . .

 test/335497: Your question goes here. Write clearly! We are not mind readers, so be sure to ask a question that we can understand.what r sets?1 solutions Answer 240526 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-08-26 22:46:35 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Sets are collections of elements. Some sets have lots of elements like the set of all numbers greater than 2. Some sets have no elements in them like the set of all basketball players taller than 10 feet tall, that's called the empty set. Some have a finite number of elements, like the set of positive integers less than 2 which only contains the number 1 or the Latin alphabet with 26 elements starting with a and ending with z.
 Angles/335508: Lines p and q intersect to form adjacent angles 1 and 2. If m<1 = 3x + 18 and m<2= -8y - 70, find the values of x and y so that p is perpendicular to q.1 solutions Answer 240523 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-08-26 22:42:51 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If the lines are perpendicular, then angles 1 and 2 both equal 90 degrees. . . .
