You can put this solution on YOUR website!

If your inequality symbol is or then use a broken line for the boundary. This means that points on the line are NOT included in the solution set.

If your inequality symbol is or then use a solid line for the boundary. This means that points on the line ARE included in the solution set.

Once you have the boundary line graphed, pick any point you like that is NOT ON THE LINE. If the line does not pass through the origin, the origin itself is a very good selection for a test point. Otherwise, pick something with small integer coefficients -- all this so that the arithmetic is easier.

Substitute the coordinates of the point you chose into the original inequality. If the result is a true statement, shade in the side of the line that CONTAINS the point you chose. If the result is a false statement, shade in the side of the line that DOES NOT CONTAIN the point you chose.

This doesn't go through the origin so, lets try (0,0)

Yep, zero is less than 2, so the shading happens on the side of the line containing the origin.

 Quadratic_Equations/310688: Hello I have a problem solving this parabola question.The path of a cliff diver as he dives into a lake ,is given by this eqaution,y=-(x-10)(SQAURED)+75,where y metres is the diver's height above the water and,x metres is the horisontal distance travelled by the diver.What is the maximum height the diver is above the water?1 solutions Answer 222183 by solver91311(16872)   on 2010-06-02 14:32:06 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Not sure whether you just need an intuitive approach, a formal algebraic approach, or a calculus approach. Intuitive The largest y can be is 75 and that is when . That is because is always a positive number, unless it is zero, so is always a negative number unless it is zero. Therefore you are always subtracting something from 75 unless , which happens when While we are at it -- 75 meters? That is 246 feet. Hitting the water from that height would be like hitting concrete. I rather think your cliff diver is only going to perform this particular stunt once. Algebraic Expand the binomial expression: A parabola with a negative lead coefficient opens downward, hence the vertex is a maximum. The vertex of a parabola expressed in form has a vertex that occurs at an value of , so: And the value of the function at is: Calculus Using the function definition from the Algebraic discussion: The function will have a maximum where the first derivative is zero and the second derivative is negative. Set it equal to zero which is negative for all in the domain of So there is a maximum at John

 Quadratic_Equations/310685: Under what circumstances would prefer using factoring, completing the square and quadratic formula over each other?1 solutions Answer 222161 by solver91311(16872)   on 2010-06-02 13:36:47 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Factoring is very handy for quadratics that are easily factored. If you don't see the factorization right off, do a quick mental calculation of the Discriminant, that is the part of the quadratic formula under the radical. If you come up with something other than an perfect square, then the quadratic does not have rational factors, i.e. it is time to move on to another technique. Completing the square is valuable in two situations: First, when you are learning the concept in preparation for development of the quadratic formula, and second when you want to transform a general second-degree equation in standard form into vertex form so that you can identify and graph the conic. All other situations call for the quadratic formula. If you forget the quadratic formula, you can always take the time to complete the square on to derive it -- but memorizing the formula is MUCH easier. John
 Mixture_Word_Problems/310674: This question was answered but I'm still confused. Can I please have some more help? High school was ten years ago, what little math ability I had is gone. Thanks Again My question is why is the quanity equation multiplied by 20 and not.2. Also when solving the two equations why does the 20a cancel, but not the 550? I know these are probably very simple, but I just don't understand. How many ml of medication A which has a 20% concentration, and medication B which has a 65% concentration should be mixed to form a 550 ml solution that is 30.9% ------------------------------- Equation: Quantity Equation:::::::: a + b = 550 ml Active Ingredient Eq: 0.20a + 0.65b = 0.309*550 ---------------------- Solving using 2 equations and elimination: Multiply thru the 1st equation by 20 Multiply thru the 2nd equation by 100 ---------------------------------------- 20a + 20b = 20*550 20a + 65b = 30.9*550 ---------------------------- Subtract 1st from 2nd and solve for "b": 45b = 10.9*550 b = 133.22 ml (amt. of 65% solution needed in the mixture) ---- Since a + b = 550, a = 416.78 ml (amt. of 20% solution needed in the mix)1 solutions Answer 222158 by solver91311(16872)   on 2010-06-02 13:23:29 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Actually, you could multiply the Quantity equation by 2, but then you would have to multiply the Active Ingredient equation by 10 instead of 100. As to your other question, let me illustrate it this way. In the first place, I would have used -20 as a multiplier for the Q equation and 100 for the AI equation, thus: Now, you could multiply out the constant terms in the right-hand sides, and that would actually answer your question about "why the 550 doesn't cancel". But let's proceed without that step. Since I used a -20 multiplier for the Q equation, we can actually add the two equations rather than subtracting them. This technique gives you much less chance for a sign error. But rather than just showing the sum of the two, let's use the idea that if and , then to write: Now, and that is why the goes away. , just like you wrote. For the constant term, let's do a little factoring. Factor out the 550: Putting it all back together: And finally, as you stated, John
 Geometry_Word_Problems/310676: The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is at most 57 feet. What could the length of a side be?1 solutions Answer 222155 by solver91311(16872)   on 2010-06-02 13:00:12 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! An equilateral triangle has three sides that are the same length. That's what equilateral means: "equi-" means "the same" and "lateral" means "side" If the perimeter is at most 57 whatevers, then the measure of a side can be at most 57 divided by 3 of the same whatevers.

That would depend a great deal on the annual interest rate and, to a lesser extent, on the compounding frequency, and if you are just considering an investment that will earn that much that will be allowed to remain in the account or if you want to actually draw out$500.00 every month as an annuity payment. Let's presume annual interest expressed as a decimal. Let's assume that the institution actually pays one-twelfth of the annual interest each month and that you want a monthly pay annuity.

 Triangles/310449: The angles of the triangle are 30°-30°-120°. Two of the sides lengths are 2 times the square root of 3. What is the length of the third side?1 solutions Answer 221960 by solver91311(16872)   on 2010-06-01 18:49:36 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The hypotenuse is the longest side of a right triangle. It is always the side opposite the right angle. Since your 30-30-120 triangle doesn't have a right angle, it is not a right triangle, therefore it does not have a hypotenuse. Having said that, if you want to know the measure of the longest side of your triangle, even though it isn't called a hypotenuse, use the Law of Cosines. Let c represent the measure of the longest side, and let a and b represent the measures of the other two equal length sides. Let C represent the measure of the largest angle. Then which, for our purposes will be more conveniently written: Plugging in the numbers given: You can do your own arithmetic. Hint: and John

Your notation is VERY confusing. Lower case letters, generally speaking, refer to the measure of the sides of a triangle, while upper case letters are generally reserved for the measures of the angles. But taking the cosine function of the measure of a side of the triangle doesn't make any sense. Hence, unless you have referred to BOTH the measure of a side of the triangle and a measure of an angle with the same variable (sort of like calling everyone in the room "George" regardless of what their names really are), you must be saying that the ratio of the measure of one of the angles to the cosine of the measure of the other acute angle is equal to the ratio of the measure of the other acute angle to the cosine of the measure of the first angle -- an assertion that is false for all except an isosceles right triangle.

 Surface-area/310349: The base of a rectangle is on the x-axis and its two upper vertices are on the parabola y=16-x^2. of all such rectangles, what are the dimensions of the one with greatest area?1 solutions Answer 221898 by solver91311(16872)   on 2010-06-01 13:55:08 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Because of the fact that the parabola is symmetric to the y-axis, the rectangle must also be symmetric to the y-axis. That means that the two lower vertices are and . The measure of the base of the rectangle is therefore . The upper vertices, being points on the parabola are: and . Therefore, the measure of the height of the rectangle is simply . Therefore the area of the rectangle is: Such a function has local extremes at the points where the first derivative is zero: Discard the negative root since we need a positive measure of length We are looking for a maximum, so we want to see if the value of the second derivative is negative at the extreme point.
