Calculate the probability that the device in the car will respond to the given signal, that is in less than 148 microseconds and within 100 and 180 microseconds.1 solutions Answer 325358 by robertb(4012)   on 2011-07-26 01:02:49 (Show Source):
 Rational-functions/474382: wha is the inverse of h(x)=x?1 solutions Answer 325350 by robertb(4012)   on 2011-07-25 23:55:03 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Since there is only one operation present, multiplication (i.e., x = 1*x), the inverse function should "undo" this operation, hence .
 Quadratic-relations-and-conic-sections/473981: Show that the equation (x^2)/(5-C) + (y^2)/ (9-C)=1 represents - an ellipse if C is any constant less than 5. - a hyperbola if C is any constant between 5 and 9. - no real locus if C is greater than 9.1 solutions Answer 325346 by robertb(4012)   on 2011-07-25 23:50:48 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If C < 5, then ==> 5 - C >0, and 9 - C >0, hence the coefficients will be positive, and we get an equation for an ellipse. If 5 < C < 9, then 0 > 5 - C > -4, while 4 > 9 - C > 0. This would give a hyperbola with the y-axis as transverse axis, and the x-axis as conjugate axis. If C > 9, then both 5 - C and 9 - C are negative, and so the left side of the equation is negative while the right side is positive, a contradiction, hence no real locus is formed.
