 Functions/316118: Find the domain of the following function f(x)=x+5/x^2-4 Can you please explain how to work this out!!1 solutions Answer 226127 by jim_thompson5910(28598)   on 2010-06-21 01:12:07 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The domain is the set of all values that we can plug in for 'x' which will give us some number output for f(x) Since you CANNOT divide by zero, this means that we must look for values that make the denominator equal to zero. So just set it equal to zero and solve. Set the denominator equal to zero. Add 4 to both sides. Take the square root of both sides. Don't forget about the plus/minus. or Break up the plus/minus. or Take the square root of 4 to get 2. So when or , the denominator is equal to zero. To avoid dividing by zero, we then make the restriction that or So the domain of is the set of all real numbers but or In interval notation, we would write that as: Basically, we're taking the number line and picking out the numbers -2 and 2.

 Probability-and-statistics/316102: Please help me understand how to answer this question. Thanks! "As a basketball coach, how many possible ways can you position your players if you have a roster of ten and five different positions?" 1 solutions Answer 226113 by jim_thompson5910(28598)   on 2010-06-21 00:13:01 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You have ten selections and five slots to place them. Let's assume that order matters. So for the first position, you have ten choices. For the second, you have 9 choices (since that first player can't play two positions). The third will have 8 choices, the 4th will have 7 choices, and the fifth position will have 6 choices. Now just multiply all these choices out to get: 10*9*8*7*6 = 30240 So there are 30240 different lineups. Another formal way is to use the permutation formula, but we basically follow the same logic. If we were to use the permutation formula , we'll plug in n=10 and r=5. After a bit of work, you'll end up with 10*9*8*7*6 = 30240 which is the same answer.

 Linear-equations/316044: Find three ordered pairs that are solutions of the given linear equation. y = 2/7x - 41 solutions Answer 226076 by jim_thompson5910(28598)   on 2010-06-20 20:10:27 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Simply pick values of 'x' to plug in to find values of 'y'. To make things easier, select values of 'x' that are multiples of 7 (so they divide into 7). For instance, if x=7, then giving you the ordered pair (7,-2)

 Exponents-negative-and-fractional/316029: What is 4.1 x 10 to the power of 4 - 1 x 10 to the power of 3?1 solutions Answer 226068 by jim_thompson5910(28598)   on 2010-06-20 19:36:51 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!When you multiply by , you're basically going to move the decimal point 4 spots to the right. So . Similarly, multiplying by moves the decimal point to the right 3 spots. So . Note: -1 = -1.0 Altogether, we get So
 Graphs/316028: y = 1/3x graph the equation and identify the y-intercept.1 solutions Answer 226067 by jim_thompson5910(28598)   on 2010-06-20 19:32:12 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is note: really looks like Since this tells us that the y-intercept is .Remember the y-intercept is the point where the graph intersects with the y-axis So we have one point Now since the slope is comprised of the "rise" over the "run" this means Also, because the slope is , this means: which shows us that the rise is 1 and the run is 3. This means that to go from point to point, we can go up 1 and over 3 So starting at , go up 1 unit and to the right 3 units to get to the next point Now draw a line through these points to graph So this is the graph of through the points and

 Solved by pluggable solver: Fractions Solver Start with the given expression In order to subtract these two fractions, these fractions need to have a common denominator. In order to do that, we simply find that the LCM of 4 and 9 is 36 (note: if you need help with finding the LCM, check out this solver) Now we need to get each denominator to 36 Multiply by Multiply and to get Multiply by Multiply and to get Since both fractions have a common denominator of 36, we can now combine the fractions Combine the fractions Subtract the numerators So

 Trigonometry-basics/316023: what is the reference angle for theta= 5pi/3? I know that 300 degrees= 5pi/3. so this means that theta lies in quadrant four and this means that you subtract theta from 360 degrees. so i'm thinking 360-300 = 60degrees or pi/3 radians as the answer. thanks in advance1 solutions Answer 226064 by jim_thompson5910(28598)   on 2010-06-20 19:17:32 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Or simply remember that 360 degrees = radians. So (which is 60 degrees). Either way, you get the same answer. So good job.
