 Solved by pluggable solver: Completing the Square to Get a Quadratic into Vertex Form Start with the given equation Add to both sides Factor out the leading coefficient Take half of the x coefficient to get (ie ). Now square to get (ie ) Now add and subtract this value inside the parenthesis. Doing both the addition and subtraction of does not change the equation Now factor to get Distribute Multiply Now add to both sides to isolate y Combine like terms Now the quadratic is in vertex form where , , and . Remember (h,k) is the vertex and "a" is the stretch/compression factor. Check: Notice if we graph the original equation we get: Graph of . Notice how the vertex is (,). Notice if we graph the final equation we get: Graph of . Notice how the vertex is also (,). So if these two equations were graphed on the same coordinate plane, one would overlap another perfectly. So this visually verifies our answer.

 Polynomials-and-rational-expressions/119313: x-2 / 3 + 5x/2 = -3/51 solutions Answer 87397 by jim_thompson5910(28598)   on 2008-01-09 13:19:17 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given equation Multiply both sides by the LCM of 30. This will eliminate the fractions (note: if you need help with finding the LCM, check out this solver) Distribute and multiply the LCM to each side Combine like terms on the left side Add 20 to both sides Combine like terms on the right side Divide both sides by 105 to isolate x Reduce -------------------------------------------------------------- Answer: So our answer is (which is approximately in decimal form)

Write each equation in standard form using integers.
just checking. is this right?
y=5x-32
5y=(5x-32)5
5y= 25x-160
-25x -25x
-25x+5y=-260
???
i am having trouble on this.
