 Trigonometry-basics/309300: Hello, I'm sorry if this question is confusing but i don't understand this, so it's sort of hard to explain. Okay, i have triangle ABC. Angle ABC=90 Degrees, Angle BCA=75 Degrees, and angle CAB=15 Degrees. If the length of line BC equals 20 units, what is the length of line AB? Please explain.1 solutions Answer 221202 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2010-05-28 00:22:09 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If you draw the triangle and label it's parts, you'll see that triangle ABC is a right triangle. Now let's use angle BCA=75 degrees as our reference angle. The side BC is the adjacent side while the side AB is the opposite side (again, a drawing will help). So we're going to use the tangent function (since tan=opposite/adjacent) So this means that tan(75)=BC/AB and that tan(75)=20/x where 'x' is the length of AB. Now compute tan(75) to get approximately 3.73205. So 3.73205=20/x Now you're job is to solve the equation 3.73205=20/x to find 'x' which is the length of AB. Note: There is a way to compute the tangent of 75 degrees exactly, but we don't need to do that here.
 Systems-of-equations/309282: 3x/6 -4/12 =7 ; -36x +24=-504 In the following pair of equations, both sides of the equation on the left were multifplied by a number to get the equation on the right. What is the number? I know the answer is -72. If you could please help me find out how to get that answer that would be so wonderful. Thank you!!1 solutions Answer 221185 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2010-05-27 22:25:17 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Well a quick and easy way to get a common multiple of 2 (or more) numbers is to simply multiply them. For instance, a common multiple of 17 and 5 is 17*5=85 In this case, a common multiple between 6 and 12 is 6*12=72. It turns out that the numbers that share the common multiple will go into that common multiple. Ie and . What this means is that you can effectively clear out the denominators of the fractions leaving you with integer terms. For instance, multiply 72 by to get . In the given problem, the only difference is that 36x is really -36x. So instead we must multiply both sides by -72. Another quick way to realize that -72 is the magic number is to look at the right side. This side already has an integer which will make life easier for us. Take the number 7 and multiply it by some unknown number 'k' to get 7k. This is now equal to the new right side of -504. Set them equal to get 7k=-504. The task now is to solve the equation 7k=-504. Sure enough, solving the equation will get us k=-72 which is the number we're looking for.

 Quadratic-relations-and-conic-sections/309219: Write an equation for the hyperbola...I have no idea. vertices (0,6) and (0,-6) conjugate axis of 14. I'd really like to figure out on my own but I have no idea where to start..so if someone could give me a step-by-step solution, that would be wonderful! Thank you.1 solutions Answer 221108 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2010-05-27 18:24:13 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The center of the hyperbola is the midpoint of the line segment from vertex to vertex. So the midpoint of (0,6) and (0,-6) is ((0+0)/2, (6+(-6)/2) ---> (0, 0). So the center is (0,0). The center is in the form (h,k), so h=0 and k=0. In this case, 'a' is the length of the semi-minor axis and 'b' is the length of the semi-major axis. So the lengths of the conjugate and traverse axes are 2a and 2b units respectively. Since the traverse axis is 2b units long, this means that 2b=12 (since the distance between the vertices is 12 units) which means that b=6. Also, because the conjugate axis is 14 units long, and 2a is the length of the conjugate axis, this means that 2a=14 and a=7 Finally, recall that the general equation for a hyperbola which opens up vertically is . From here, all you need to do is plug in the right values and simplify.

In other words, you'll have the equation . From here, you have a simple linear equation in which you can solve for 'b'. I'll let you do that.

Now add this to the second equation and you'll find that the 'y' terms cancel out. This will leave you with an equation in which you can solve for 'x'.

 Sequences-and-series/309008: Is the formula explicit or recursive? Find the first five terms of the sequence. a. recursive; 1, -4, 16, -64, 256 b. recursive; 0, -16, -24, -48, -80 c. explicit; 1, -4, 16, -64, 256 d. explicit; 0, -8, -24, -48, -801 solutions Answer 220934 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2010-05-27 00:02:24 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!It's explicit since you are able to find any term you want (eg the first or the eighty first) and you don't need to know anything about any previous terms. I'll let you find the first five terms. Simply plug in , , , , and and evaluate each individual expression.
 Percentage-and-ratio-word-problems/309004: an iteam is originally priced at D dollars will be discounted at 35%. write an expression to represent the new price. i thought that you would take D/.35 but that is not right.1 solutions Answer 220930 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2010-05-26 23:56:13 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Say the item is $100, if you divide by 0.35, you then get which is clearly NOT a discount (unless you like paying more for something that should be less) Instead, when that same$100 item is discounted by 35%, this basically means that you are subtracting 35% of that item's price from the price of the item. Recall that 35% is 0.35 in decimal form. So if a item is originally \$100, then a 35% discount reduces the price to dollars. In general, an item at D dollars discounts to . Take note that if , then which is what we originally got. So the new price after the 35% discount is dollars.
 Inequalities/308661: Which of the following statements must be true when a^2 < b^2 and a and b are not 0? I. a^2/a < b^2/a II. 1/a^2 > 1/b^2 III. (a + b) (a - b) < 0 1 solutions Answer 220928 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2010-05-26 23:37:37 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I. Clearly this is false. If , then the inequality sign should flip, but it does not. If the sign did flip, then it would only be true for negative values of 'a', but what if 'a' was positive? Since we have this uncertainty, statement I is false. II. If and , then and are both positive numbers. Recall that if and 'x' and 'y' are both positive, then which shows us that statement II is true. III. Start with the given inequality. Subtract from both sides. Factor the left side using the difference of squares. So statement III is true.
 Inequalities/308695: If xy > 1 and z < 0, which of the following statements must be true? I. x > z II. xyz < -1 III. xy/z < 1/z 1 solutions Answer 220927 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2010-05-26 23:20:25 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I. False. For example, let x = -10 and z = -1. Clearly is false. If we let , then showing that is true. II. False, this is only true if . So is on the right track, but it is false. For example, if , and we let , then which is clearly not less than -1. We must make the requirement that the right side be 'z' and not -1. III. This is true since dividing both sides of an inequality by a negative number will flip the inequality sign. Basically, divide both sides of by the negative number 'z' to get (don't forget to flip the sign).

Any single one of them would be helpful if you can't necessairly figure them all out, so if you know anything at all pleaseee help. Thank you so much! 1 solutions Answer 220922 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2010-05-26 22:55:37 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!This is very helpful to remember: For the general conic If , then the given conic above is an ellipse Furthermore, if , and , then the conic is also a circle If , then the given conic above is a parabola If , then the given conic above is a hyperbola First, let's subtract 3 from both sides to get So if we wanted to force to be a circle, then we must make sure that , , and . In this case, , , , , , and . Plug these values in to get and simplify to get . Solve for 'k' to get . So 'k' must be positive. Also, because we want and , and we know that , this means that as well. But . So This means that if , then we get the circle For any ellipse, just pick a positive 'k' value that is NOT equal to 4. This 'k' value will make true. For the parabola, just make since this satisfies the equation (basically, everything goes to zero since B and C are zero) And finally, for any hyperbola, reverse the idea of the ellipse and pick any negative 'k' value. This works because is essentially the opposite of
