I would greatly appreciate it! Thx! Here is the problem: x^7+x^5-10x^3+12/ (x+2) Since the divisor isn't in "x-c" form, I had to alter that. Also, lots of terms were missing in this problem, so I had to alter that, too. (That is what made this problem looonnnggg!) After I altered it, the problem looked like this: x^7+0x^6+x^5+0x^4-10x^3+0x^2+0x+12 / (x-(-2)) My synthetic division went like this: -2_| 1 0 1 0 -10 0 0 12 -2 4 -10 20 -20 40 -80 _____________________________________ 1 -2 5 -10 10 -20 40 -68 as remainder So my answer is: x^6-2x^5+5x^4-10x^3+10x^2-20x+40-68/(x-(-2)) YIKES!!

Percentage-and-ratio-word-problems/396153: the cost of the item is$56 after a 20% discount....what is original price? how do you get the answer?1 solutions Answer 281093 by jim_thompson5910(28598)   on 2011-01-18 11:45:30 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Unfortunately the first answer is incorrect. Why? Because a 20% discount subtracts 20% of the original price from the original price. It's not simply 20% of the original price. This is a common pitfall with these types of problems. Let x = original price. Since "the cost of the item is \$56 after a 20% discount", this means that . Basically, the original price is x and 20% of this price is 0.2x. Subtract 0.2x from x to get the discount price of and set this equal to the known discount price of 56 Start with the given equation. Subtract Divide both sides by 0.8 to isolate x. Divide. So the original price is 70 dollars. Check: Notice that 20% of 70 dollars is 0.2*70 = 14 dollars So subtract 14 dollars from 70 dollars to get: 70 - 14 = 56 So this confirms our answer.
