Rearrange the terms and combine the roots. So
 Quadratic_Equations/286500: A model rocket is projected straight upward from the ground level according to the height equation h= -16t^2+192t, where t is greater than or = to 0. What is the maximum height of the rocket and after how many seconds does the rocket reach maximum height? I am just somewhat frustrated because it seems as thought the book and my lecture do not have sufficient information to answer this question, and I could really use some help. Thanks.1 solutions Answer 207790 by jim_thompson5910(28504)   on 2010-03-29 14:32:10 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Note: I'm using 'x' instead of 't' and 'y' instead of 'h' The max height will occur at the vertex since the vertex is the highest/lowest point on the parabola. So we must find the vertex. To find the vertex, we'll use the formula which is the x coordinate of the vertex. Since is in the form where , and , we can plug these values in to get So the 'x' coordinate of the vertex is . So the highest point occurs when or equivalently when (since I replaced 't' with 'x'). So the rocket reaches the max height at 6 seconds. From here, just plug into to find the height 'h' at that given 't' value. Note: the vertex will be (6, h) where 'h' is the height at 6 seconds, but you probably don't need this info.

 Trigonometry-basics/286433: How many nanoseconds (1 nanosecond = 10^-9 s) does it take a computer signal to travel 60 cm at a rate of 2.4*10^10 cm/s ? Thank you1 solutions Answer 207739 by jim_thompson5910(28504)   on 2010-03-29 12:39:19 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Recall that distance = rate*time or D = rt In this case, D=60 cm and cm/sec. Plug these values in to get Now divide both sides by 2.4 to get Now divide both sides by to isolate 't' to get From here, it helps to remember that negative exponents effectively flip fractions. Eg. . This means that we can write as So the value of 't' is seconds. Now just multiply this answer by (this is the given conversion factor) to convert the answer into nanoseconds to get nanoseconds So it takes about 2.5 nanoseconds.

 Solved by pluggable solver: Graphing Linear Equations In order to graph we only need to plug in two points to draw the line So lets plug in some points Plug in x=-8 Multiply Add Reduce So here's one point (-8,6) Now lets find another point Plug in x=-4 Multiply Add Reduce So here's another point (-4,5). Add this to our graph Now draw a line through these points So this is the graph of through the points (-8,6) and (-4,5) So from the graph we can see that the slope is (which tells us that in order to go from point to point we have to start at one point and go down -1 units and to the right 4 units to get to the next point), the y-intercept is (0,)and the x-intercept is (,0) We could graph this equation another way. Since this tells us that the y-intercept (the point where the graph intersects with the y-axis) is (0,). So we have one point (0,) Now since the slope is , this means that in order to go from point to point we can use the slope to do so. So starting at (0,), we can go down 1 units and to the right 4 units to get to our next point Now draw a line through those points to graph So this is the graph of through the points (0,4) and (4,3)

Graph the function. -2(X+2)^21 solutions Answer 207727 by jim_thompson5910(28504)   on 2010-03-29 12:07:43 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hint: The vertex of is (h,k) and the axis of symmetry is . Note: rewrite as
 Linear-systems/286418: Solve using the Substitution Method 3x+2y=13 x+y=5 1 solutions Answer 207726 by jim_thompson5910(28504)   on 2010-03-29 12:06:17 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Step 1) Pick an equation and a variable to solve for. I'm going to solve for 'y' in the second equation. So solve for 'y' in to get Step 2) Plug in (ie substitute) into the other equation . In other words, replace each 'y' with to effectively eliminate every 'y' term. After doing so, you should get Step 3) Solve for 'x'. This can be easily done as is a simple linear equation with one variable. Step 4) Take the solution found in step 3 and use it to find the solution in terms of 'y'.
 Linear-equations/286207: Find an equation of the line described. Write the equation in the slope-intercept formif possible. through (6, -14) and (3, -2)? 1 solutions Answer 207547 by jim_thompson5910(28504)   on 2010-03-28 18:28:32 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First let's find the slope of the line through the points and Note: is the first point . So this means that and . Also, is the second point . So this means that and . Start with the slope formula. Plug in , , , and Subtract from to get Subtract from to get Reduce So the slope of the line that goes through the points and is Now let's use the point slope formula: Start with the point slope formula Plug in , , and Rewrite as Distribute Multiply Subtract 14 from both sides. Combine like terms. So the equation that goes through the points and is
 Functions/286185: Find the domain of the function g(x)=8 'over' 2-3x I'm so lost...Thank you in advance!!1 solutions Answer 207512 by jim_thompson5910(28504)   on 2010-03-28 16:41:46 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Reminder: The domain is the set of all allowable inputs. You can think of this as the set of all possible 'x' values (that produce some number as an output). Remember that you CANNOT divide by zero. So if the denominator , then (solve for 'x'). This means that if , then . In other words, if , then the denominator is zero (which is not allowed). So we must exclude this value from the domain. Since there are no other values that make the denominator zero, this means that the only value to exclude from the domain is So the domain is the set of all real numbers except We denote this in interval notation as Basically, this is the interval with the number taken out of it.
 Exponents/286155: Help.... (-4m^2n^4)^3 (-3m^3n^2)^2 / (-6m^2n^3)^61 solutions Answer 207484 by jim_thompson5910(28504)   on 2010-03-28 16:01:34 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hint: Use the four identities 1. . Basically, you can either multiply first, then exponentiate, OR, exponentiate and then multiply. (note: this can expand to any number of terms inside the parenthesis. So you could have 50 terms in the parenthesis if you wanted). Example: 2. . When you raise an exponential expression to another exponent, you're going to multiply the exponents. Example: 3. . When you multiply monomials (with a common base), you're going to add the exponents. Example: 4. . When you divide monomials (with a common base), you're going to subtract the exponents. Example:
