 Solved by pluggable solver: Graphing Linear Equations Start with the given equation Subtract from both sides Multiply both sides by Distribute Multiply Rearrange the terms Reduce any fractions So the equation is now in slope-intercept form () where (the slope) and (the y-intercept) So to graph this equation lets plug in some points Plug in x=-8 Multiply Add So here's one point (-8,9) Now lets find another point Plug in x=-7 Multiply Add So here's another point (-7,8). Add this to our graph Now draw a line through these points So this is the graph of through the points (-8,9) and (-7,8) 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 1 units to get to the next point), the y-intercept is (0,)and the x-intercept is (,0) . So all of this information verifies our graph. 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 1 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 (0,1) and (1,0)

I would greatly appreciate it. :) Here is my first problem. A calculation shows that an angle has a measure of 113.05 degrees. This angle can be written in the form A B', measured in degrees and minutes. What is the sum of A and B? Note: In the second sentence the A has a degree symbol after it. This is how far I got into the problem. 113 + ?/60 + ?/ 3600 1 solutions Answer 86798 by jim_thompson5910(28593)   on 2008-01-04 14:29:18 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Since the angle is 113.05 degrees, this means A=113 (just take the whole part of the number). Now take the decimal portion 0.05 and multiply it by 60 (since there are 60 minutes in a degree) to get . So this means that 0.05 degrees is 3 minutes which means B=3 So the sum of A and B is:
 Numeric_Fractions/118668: If you have a negative improper fraction like -29/16 If you simplify that is it still a negative?1 solutions Answer 86797 by jim_thompson5910(28593)   on 2008-01-04 14:22:57 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Well you can't reduce the fraction, but you can convert it to a mixed fraction. Start with the given improper fraction Break up into . Notice how is a multiple of . Break up the fraction. Reduce to get . Simplify. Remember is the same as . So the improper fraction is the mixed fraction . So the fraction is still negative
 Rectangles/118667: What is the area of a rectangle with a length of 45 and diagonals of 51?1 solutions Answer 86795 by jim_thompson5910(28593)   on 2008-01-04 13:13:33 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If we cut the rectangle in half along the diagonal, we get this triangle Since we can see that the triangle has legs of x and 45 with a hypotenuse of 51, we can use Pythagoreans theorem to find the unknown side. Pythagoreans theorem: where a and b are the legs of the triangle and c is the hypotenuse Plug in a=x, b=45, and c=51. Now lets solve for x Square each individual term Subtract 2025 from both sides Combine like terms Take the square root of both sides Simplify the square root So the width is 24 Now multiply 24 and 45 to get the area So the area of the rectangle is 1080

Let's simplify this expression using synthetic division

First lets find our test zero:

Set the denominator equal to zero

Solve for x.

so our test zero is 3

Now set up the synthetic division table by placing the test zero in the upper left corner and placing the coefficients of the numerator to the right of the test zero.
 3 | 1 3 1 |

Start by bringing down the leading coefficient (it is the coefficient with the highest exponent which is 1)
 3 | 1 3 1 | 1

Multiply 3 by 1 and place the product (which is 3) right underneath the second coefficient (which is 3)
 3 | 1 3 1 | 3 1

Add 3 and 3 to get 6. Place the sum right underneath 3.
 3 | 1 3 1 | 3 1 6

Multiply 3 by 6 and place the product (which is 18) right underneath the third coefficient (which is 1)
 3 | 1 3 1 | 3 18 1 6

Add 18 and 1 to get 19. Place the sum right underneath 18.
 3 | 1 3 1 | 3 18 1 6 19

Since the last column adds to 19, we have a remainder of 19. This means is not a factor of
Now lets look at the bottom row of coefficients:

The first 2 coefficients (1,6) form the quotient

and the last coefficient 19, is the remainder, which is placed over like this

Putting this altogether, we get:

So

which looks like this in remainder form:
remainder 19

So Now when you divide, just undo the multiplication by dividing. In other words, Now if you divide 2 equal expressions, then you will always get 1 (ie ). So something like So this shows why for any nonzero value of a. Now I'll let you think this question over: why does "a" have to be nonzero?

For instance, the variable x is a term and is a square. So if we have x and y, then and are both squares. Now subtract one from the other to get a difference of squares: note: this also works for numbers. For instance, 25 is a perfect square that can be written as . So if we have it's the same as which is also a difference of squares.
