Start with the given equation. Subtract from both sides. Rearrange the terms. Divide both sides by to isolate y. Break up the fraction. Reduce. Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is 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 4 and the run is 1. This means that to go from point to point, we can go up 4 and over 1 So starting at , go up 4 units and to the right 1 unit 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

 Human-and-algebraic-language/275215: Studying probabilities ... Three cards are drawn in succession and without replacement from a standard deck of 52 cards. What is the probability that they are all face cards ( jack, queen, king)? The textbook says the answer is 11/1105, but for the life of me I can't get it to come out. Can you help me please? Thanks in advance! 1 solutions Answer 200732 by jim_thompson5910(28595)   on 2010-02-28 15:00:33 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!P(3 Face Cards) = P(Face Card AND Face Card AND Face Card) Remember that the keyword "and" tells us to multiply. Since there are 4 suits and 3 face cards, there are 12 face cards. Because we're not replacing the cards, the number to choose from will go down. So on the first draw we have 12 face cards to choose from (out of 52). On the second draw, we have 11 face cards to pick from (out of 51). Finally, on the third draw, we now have 10 face cards to choose from (out of 50). So P(Face Card AND Face Card AND Face Card) = P(Face Card)*P(Face Card)*P(Face Card) P(Face Card AND Face Card AND Face Card) = (# of face cards/# total)*(# of face cards/# total)*(# of face cards/# total) P(Face Card AND Face Card AND Face Card) = (12/52)*(11/51)*(10/50) P(Face Card AND Face Card AND Face Card) = 11/1105 So this means that P(3 Face Cards) = 11/1105

 Solved by pluggable solver: Finding the Equation of a Line Parallel or Perpendicular to a Given Line Remember, any two perpendicular lines are negative reciprocals of each other. So if you're given the slope of , you can find the perpendicular slope by this formula: where is the perpendicular slope So plug in the given slope to find the perpendicular slope When you divide fractions, you multiply the first fraction (which is really ) by the reciprocal of the second Multiply the fractions. So the perpendicular slope is So now we know the slope of the unknown line is (its the negative reciprocal of from the line ). Also since the unknown line goes through (3,6), we can find the equation by plugging in this info into the point-slope formula Point-Slope Formula: where m is the slope and (,) is the given point Plug in , , and Distribute Multiply Add to both sides to isolate y Make into equivalent fractions with equal denominators Combine the fractions Reduce any fractions So the equation of the line that is perpendicular to and goes through (,) is So here are the graphs of the equations and graph of the given equation (red) and graph of the line (green) that is perpendicular to the given graph and goes through (,)

Thanks so much! Guðrún1 solutions Answer 200625 by jim_thompson5910(28595)   on 2010-02-27 17:19:24 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Because we're only looking for positive integer solutions, this set of solutions will be finite even though we're missing a third equation. To find these solutions, simply list all of the factors of 630 and see which set of 3 factors add up to 38. For example, 630=2*5*63 which means that 2+5+63=70. It turns out that there are only 6 sets of solutions and they are A = 2, B = 15, C = 21 A = 2, B = 21, C = 15 A = 15, B = 2, C = 21 A = 15, B = 21, C = 2 A = 21, B = 2, C = 15 A = 21, B = 15, C = 2 For example, when A = 2, B = 15, C = 21, then 2*15*21=630 and 2+15+21=38 Basically, there are 3 unique numbers here (they're just being rearranged) and the numbers are 2, 15, and 21.

Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is 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 3 and the run is 4. This means that to go from point to point, we can go up 3 and over 4 So starting at , go up 3 units and to the right 4 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

#### x-intercept

To find the x-intercept, plug in and solve for x

Plug in .

Multiply and 0 to get 0.

Multiply.

Divide both sides by to isolate .

So the x-intercept is .

------------------------------------------

#### y-intercept

To find the y-intercept, plug in and solve for y

Plug in .

Multiply and 0 to get 0.

Divide both sides by to isolate .

So the y-intercept is .

 Square-cubic-other-roots/274775: simplify by factoring 4√486 is1 solutions Answer 200504 by jim_thompson5910(28595)   on 2010-02-27 00:26:34 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First, let's simplify The goal of simplifying expressions with square roots is to factor the radicand into a product of two numbers. One of these two numbers must be a perfect square. When you take the square root of this perfect square, you will get a rational number. So let's list the factors of 486 Factors: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18, 27, 54, 81, 162, 243, 486 Notice how 81 is the largest perfect square, so lets factor 486 into 81*6 Factor 486 into 81*6 Break up the square roots using the identity Take the square root of the perfect square 81 to get 9 So the expression simplifies to In other words, ---------------------------------------- So this means that ================================================================= Answer: So

So lets graph the line (note: if you need help with graphing, check out this solver) graph of Now lets pick a test point, say (0,0). Any point will work, (just make sure the point doesn't lie on the line) but this point is the easiest to work with. Now evaluate the inequality with the test point Substitute (0,0) into the inequality Plug in and Simplify Since this inequality is true, we simply shade the entire region that contains (0,0) Graph of with the boundary (which is the line in red) and the shaded region (in green) (note: since the inequality contains a greater-than sign, this means the boundary is excluded. This means the solid red line is really a dashed line)

A counterexample is an explicit example in which proves a theorem or equation false (usually by a contradiction of some sort). So let's say that and . This would then mean that Now plug and into to get So in short, and when and . Clearly which means that when and . --------------------------------------------------------------- Here's another way of looking at it. By the change of base formula, By another identity, So let's assume that . If this is the case, then Equate the bases and arguments to get and . The second equation simplifies to . Solve for b to get . Now if , this means that which is impossible (you can't divide by zero).
