We can solve this by factoring.

Factor out the GCF .

Now let's try to factor the inner expression

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

Looking at the expression , we can see that the first coefficient is , the second coefficient is , and the last term is .

Now multiply the first coefficient by the last term to get .

Now the question is: what two whole numbers multiply to (the previous product) and add to the second coefficient ?

To find these two numbers, we need to list all of the factors of (the previous product).

Factors of :
1
-1

Note: list the negative of each factor. This will allow us to find all possible combinations.

These factors pair up and multiply to .
1*1 = 1
(-1)*(-1) = 1

Now let's add up each pair of factors to see if one pair adds to the middle coefficient :

First NumberSecond NumberSum
111+1=2
-1-1-1+(-1)=-2

From the table, we can see that the two numbers and add to (the middle coefficient).

So the two numbers and both multiply to and add to

Now replace the middle term with . Remember, and add to . So this shows us that .

Replace the second term with .

Group the terms into two pairs.

Factor out the GCF from the first group.

Factor out from the second group. The goal of this step is to make the terms in the second parenthesis equal to the terms in the first parenthesis.

Combine like terms. Or factor out the common term

Condense the terms.

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

So then factors further to

So completely factors to .

In other words, .

So is equivalent to

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

Now let's solve

Divide both sides by .

Reduce.

Take the square root of both sides.

or Break up the "plus/minus" to form two equations.

or Take the square root of to get .

Since -0 is really 0, this means we have one equation:

Subtract from both sides.

Combine like terms.

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

So the only solution is .

 Linear-equations/221025: find the equation of the following lines, write the answer in slop-intercept form. Parallel to y=3/7x-2 through (4,0)1 solutions Answer 165835 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2009-10-03 14:18:37 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! We can see that the equation has a slope and a y-intercept . Since parallel lines have equal slopes, this means that we know that the slope of the unknown parallel line is . Now let's use the point slope formula to find the equation of the parallel line by plugging in the slope and the coordinates of the given point . Start with the point slope formula Plug in , , and Simplify Distribute Multiply So the equation of the line parallel to that goes through the point is . Here's a graph to visually verify our answer: Graph of the original equation (red) and the parallel line (green) through the point .

 Probability-and-statistics/220381: The bus you take every morning is equally likely to be anywhere from 2 minutes early to 15 minutes late. What is the probability that the bus is more than five minutes late? I put 10/15 and got it wrong. The teacher's response was that the denominator was wrong. How so? Please explain.1 solutions Answer 165637 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2009-10-02 14:08:12 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Think of it like this: There are 15-5=10 minutes in the interval from 5 minutes to 15 minutes. Also, from 2 minutes to 15 minutes, there are 13 minutes. So the chances of the bus being more than 5 minutes late is (since there are 10 instances out of 13 that it could be 5 minutes or more late). It looks like you have the right idea for the numerator, but you just forgot to do the same for the denominator.
 Equations/220726: This is a word problem my son just had on a quiz and I couldn't solve either. I thought we didn't have enough info. Marshfield Middle school cluster C has 100 students in honors pre-algebra Cluster C has 30 students enrolled in after school math enrichment. If 105 cluster C students are in only one or the other of these, how many students are in both? Tried a venn diagram to get my mind around it, didn't work. (I keep thinking I need to know the total enrollment of honors pre-alg plus after school)my son said he got 12.5 as an answer, but the teacher said it would come out as a whole number. Thanks, Trish 1 solutions Answer 165625 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2009-10-02 13:13:48 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x = Number of students in both classes To find the number of students in only one or the other (not both) class, we subtract out the number that are in both (which is 'x') from the total. In other words, Number that are in one or other (not both) = (Number in pre-algebra + Number in math enrichment) - (Number in both) 105 = (100+30) - x 105 = 130 - x 105-130 = - x - 25 = - x 25 = x x = 25 So there are 25 students in both classes.
 Miscellaneous_Word_Problems/220710: Given that the number 5913d8 is divisible by 12, what is the sum of all the digits that could replace d?1 solutions Answer 165622 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2009-10-02 13:01:18 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!5913d8 is only divisible by 12 only if 5913d8 is divisible by both 3 and 4. 5913d8 is divisible by 4 only if the last two digits are divisible by 4. In other words, 5913d8 is divisible by 4 only if d8 is divisible by 4. This restricts the choices of d to: 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 5913d8 is divisible by 3 only if the sum of the digits are divisible by 3. So add them up to get: 5+9+1+3+d+8=26+d. Now just plug in the possible values of d to determine if 26+d is divisible by 3. d=0: 26+0=26 which is NOT divisible by 3. So d=0 is eliminated. d=2: 26+2=28 which is NOT divisible by 3. So d=2 is eliminated. d=4: 26+4=30 which is divisible by 3. So d=4 is one digit. d=6: 26+6=32 which is NOT divisible by 3. So d=6 is eliminated. d=8: 26+8=34 which is NOT divisible by 3. So d=8 is eliminated. So the only number that is divisible by 12 is 591348. So the sum of all the digits that could replace 'd' is 4.

Let's find the two areas:

Area of the Circle:

Take note that the radius is units (ie divide the diameter in half to get the radius)

 Solved by pluggable solver: Find the Area of a Circle Start with the area of a circle formula. Plug in . Replace with (since is approximately 3.14159...). Square to get . Multiply and to get .So the area of the circle with a radius of units is roughly square units.

Area of the Rectangle:

 Solved by pluggable solver: Find the Area of a Rectangle Recall that the area of any rectangle with length L and width W is simply . In other words, to find the area, just multiply the length by the width. Start with the given area formula. Plug in and Multiply and to get (click here if you need a calculator). So the area of a rectangle with the length of 5 units and the width of 3 units is 15 square units.

From above, we see that the area of the circle is about 12.566 square units while the area of the rectangle is 15 square units. So the circle has the smaller area.

Subtract 90 from both sides

 Solved by pluggable solver: Quadratic Formula Let's use the quadratic formula to solve for x: Starting with the general quadratic the general solution using the quadratic equation is: So lets solve (note: since the polynomial does not have an "x" term, the 2nd coefficient is zero. In other words, b=0. So that means the polynomial really looks like notice , , and ) Plug in a=2, b=0, and c=-90 Square 0 to get 0 Multiply to get Combine like terms in the radicand (everything under the square root) Simplify the square root (note: If you need help with simplifying the square root, check out this solver) Multiply 2 and 2 to get 4 So now the expression breaks down into two parts or Now break up the fraction or Simplify or So the solutions are: or

Plug in (the given distance) and (the given speed) Now the goal is to simply solve for 't': Divide both sides by 3 to isolate 't'. Divide 7.6 into 3 to get 2.533 (this is approximate). Rearrange the equation. So the solution is which means that it takes about 2.5 hours to walk 7.6 miles.
