 Polynomials-and-rational-expressions/234574: A boat can travel 9 miles upstream in the same amount of time it takes to travel 11 miles downstream. if the current of the river is 3 miles per hour, complete the chart below and use it to find the speed of the boat in still water distance = rate * Time upstream 9 r-3 downstream 11 r+3 1 solutions Answer 172956 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-11-03 12:08:24 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The time is the same for both the upstream and downstream trips ("in the same amount of time"), so just call it . Since we can also say So for the upstream trip: And for the downstream trip: But , so we can say: Just cross-multiply and solve for John
 Numbers_Word_Problems/234564: How do write this out?: One third of the sum of a number and seven is seven1 solutions Answer 172952 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-11-03 11:59:28 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! "sum" means add. "of" means multiply. "is" means equals. Let represent the number. Then the sum of the number and seven means . One third of the sum means one-third times the sum, so, . Finally, all of that is seven which means: So the number is 14. John
 Mixture_Word_Problems/234550: If x ml of water are added to 200 ml of pure orange (concentrate) the result is a mixture that is 80% orange juice (concentrate) and the rest water, what equations could be used to solve for x? Please help me solve the problem too.1 solutions Answer 172940 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-11-03 11:43:41 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The total quantity of mixture at the end is the 200 ml of concentrate plus the amount of water added, , or . 80% of the mixture is pure concentrate, and the pure concentrate amount is 200 ml, so: Just solve for John
 Graphs/234536: Fin the area of a triangle whose vertices have coordinates of (0,9), (0, - 4), (5, -4).1 solutions Answer 172936 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-11-03 11:28:30 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The first thing to do is plot the three points and draw the triangle so that you can see what you have to work with. You can tell from the fact that two of the points have identical -coordinates that one of the sides of the triangle is a vertical line segment. You can also see that two of the points have identical -coordinates, so another side of the triangle is a horizontal line segment. Having one side vertical and another side horizontal tells us that this is a right triangle. We can say the base is either one of these two sides and the height is the other. In order to compute the area, use the formula: where is the measure of the base and is the measure of the height. Now all we need are those measurements. Given the coordinates of two points you can find the distance between them using the distance formula: Where and are the coordinates of the two points. Let's call line segment BC the base. B has coordinates and C has coordinates . Substitute these values into the distance formula: hence the measure of the base is 5. Do the same process to calculate the measure of the height, that is line segment AB. Then use these values in the Area Formula to calculate your area. John
 Linear-equations/234531: Graph the equation using the slope and y intercept. y=5/4x+6 so I think the slope is 5/4. I think the y intercept is 6. I need to know if these are correct and also how I graph it. I think I plot the point (0,6) and then go down 5 and over 4 to plot a second point and then draw a line.1 solutions Answer 172932 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-11-03 10:45:21 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Yes, yes, yes, and almost. The slope is positive 5 over positive 4, so you go UP 5 and RIGHT 4. Anytime you have a positive slope, the line will go up as you go from left to right. Negative slopes go down as you go from left to right. You don't need help with your math, you just need confidence. Go to http://www.padowan.dk/graph/ and download the free graphing program. Write back and I'll answer any questions you have about using it. John
 percentage/234471: ONE PIECE OF THE PIE HAS THE SAME SHAPE AS WOULD BE FORMED BY THE HANDS OF A CLOCK WHEN IT IS EXACTLY THREE O'CLOCK.THIS PIECE WOULD REPRESENT _% OF THE WHOLE PIE.1 solutions Answer 172880 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-11-03 01:35:10 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Is there some reason that you feel the need to shout? Typing in ALL CAPS is the text communication equivalent of shouting. It is both annoying and rude. The answer to your question depends on whether you are considering the piece that goes from 12 to 3 clockwise, or from 12 to 3 counterclockwise. The 3 is at 90 degrees from 12, so the smaller piece is 90/360 or 1/4. The larger piece is then 3/4. Just convert 1/4 or 3/4, whichever you think it is, to percent. You can do that by dividing the denominator of the fraction into the numerator and then multiplying the result by 100. John

Is there some reason you feel the need to SHOUT? Typing in ALL CAPS is the electronic equivalent of shouting, and is therefore both annoying and rude. Please stop. Let represent the number of pounds of$3.11 per-pound candy. Since there are to be a total of 36 pounds in the final mixture, the number of pounds of $1.92 per-pound candy must be: . If there are pounds of candy that cost$3.11, then the total cost of that part of the mixture must be . Likewise the total cost of the less expensive part of the mixture must be . And finally, the total cost of the overall mixture must be $2.48 times 36. The sum of the costs of the two kinds of candy must be the total cost of the mixture, so: Just solve for .

Please help.1 solutions Answer 172725 by solver91311(16877) on 2009-11-02 16:58:12 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! It depends. Do you just want a numerical approximation or do you want the exact answer in simplest terms? For a numerical approximation, enter 175 into your calculator then press the square root key. Round to an appropriate level of precision. For an exact answer in simplest terms, first determine the prime factorization of your radicand. 175 is odd, therefore not divisible by 2: 1+7+5=13, 13 not divisible by 3, so 175 is not divisible by 3: 175 ends in 5, so 175 is divisible by 5. 175 divided by 5 = 35: 35 is 7 times 5, so the prime factorization of 175 is 5 times 5 times 7. There are a pair of 5s in the prime factorization. Take one five out of the radicand and toss the other one, leaving you with: John  Expressions-with-variables/234210: i have a test tomorrow and i'm so confused on questions like these: 3x+7-2x=4x+10 can you please help ASAP!!!!!!!1 solutions Answer 172724 by solver91311(16877) on 2009-11-02 16:48:00 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!

Step 1: Put the equation into standard form, that is: . (This is already done for this problem) Step 2: Multiply both sides of the equation by the reciprocal of the lead coefficient, that is: . becomes . Since the lead coefficient in the given problem is 1, this step can be skipped. Step 3: Add the additive inverse of the constant term to both sides, that is: becomes . (This is already done for this problem) Step 4: Divide the coefficient on the 1st degree term by 2 and then square the result, that is, calculate . For this problem: 16 divided by 2 is 8, 8 squared is 64. Step 5: Add the results of step 3 to both sides of the equation, that is: becomes For this problem, . Step 6: Factor the perfect square on the left, that is: becomes . For this problem: . Step 7: Take the square root of both sides. Remember to consider both the positive and negative roots, that is: becomes . For this problem: Step 8: Collect terms and simplify, that is: becomes . For this problem: , so or .

Not sure what you are talking about. Do you mean a system of linear equations that is consistent and dependent? Or are you talking about a polynomial equation and asking if you can tell if all of the roots are real numbers? Or are you talking about an identity where any real number will satisfy the equation?

I presume you mean that the angle that measures and the angle that measures are complementary angles. To the extent that is true, you can say: because the sum of the measures of two complementary angles is 90 degrees. So just solve for and substitute that value back into the given expressions for the measures of the two angles.
