 Rectangles/637007: Hi Guys - Pretty basic algebraic question here however it would be great if you could provide some assistance. A rectangle is x cm long and y cm wide. There is a frame around the mirrior, which is m cm wide on all four sides. Questions: Write a formula for the area of the mirror and frame. Is your answer a sum or a product, how do you decide? How can this be answered? Thanks, Dom.1 solutions Answer 401422 by jim_thompson5910(28536)   on 2012-08-13 14:23:35 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The length is x. You add m to to each side of this length to get m + x + m = x+2m So the new length is x+2m cm Similarly, the old width of y cm becomes y+2m cm The new area is then... Area = Length*Width A = LW A = (x+2m)(y+2m) A = xy + 2xm + 2ym + 4m^2 Notice how the second to last line above is a product and the last line is a sum, so either one works.

Plug in , , and Square to get Multiply to get Rewrite as Add to to get So the discriminant is Since the discriminant is greater than zero, this means that there are two real solutions.
 Distributive-associative-commutative-properties/636839: 3x+6=421 solutions Answer 401246 by jim_thompson5910(28536)   on 2012-08-12 14:16:56 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given equation. Subtract from both sides. Combine like terms on the right side. Divide both sides by to isolate . Reduce. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Answer: So the solution is
 Sequences-and-series/636692: How do i find the 15th term of the series 3,7,11,15...1 solutions Answer 401178 by jim_thompson5910(28536)   on 2012-08-12 01:41:01 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!nth term: an = a1 + (n-1)*d an = 3 + (n-1)*4 an = 3 + 4n - 4 an = 4n - 1 ------------------- 15th term an = 4n - 1 a15 = 4(15) - 1 a15 = 60 - 1 a15 = 59
 Travel_Word_Problems/636460: you have to drive 300 miles. for the first three hours, you drive 50 mph. how much longer will you have to drive if you increas your speed to 65 mph?1 solutions Answer 401032 by jim_thompson5910(28536)   on 2012-08-10 23:14:54 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!In the "first three hours, you drive 50 mph", so you've driven 3*50 = 150 miles so far You need to travel the remaining 300 - 150 = 150 miles at 65 mph So this will take you about 150/65 = 2.30769 hours
 Travel_Word_Problems/636468: Train A leaves a station traveling at 32 km/h. Two hours later, train B leaves the same station traveling in the same direction at 52 km/h. How long does it take train B to catch up to train A?1 solutions Answer 401031 by jim_thompson5910(28536)   on 2012-08-10 23:10:41 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hint: the equation for train A is y = 32x where x is the time and y is the distance traveled. The equation for train B is y = 52(x-2) where again x is the time and y is the distance traveled The two will meet when the two distances are the same. So solve 32x = 52(x-2) for x to find your answer.
 Distributive-associative-commutative-properties/636465: Given that f(x) = x^3- x^2 + 2x, what is f(-3)?1 solutions Answer 401030 by jim_thompson5910(28536)   on 2012-08-10 23:08:08 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! So the answer is
 Rational-functions/636466: Find the slope of the line passing through (-3, -4) and (3, -2).1 solutions Answer 401029 by jim_thompson5910(28536)   on 2012-08-10 22:44:40 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! 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
