 Rate-of-work-word-problems/232146: Pump A can fill a water jar two times faster than Pump B. Working together, the two pumps fill water jars in five hours. How long does it take for each pump to fill a water jar individually? I don't know how to solve, or the equations I would need.1 solutions Answer 171674 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-10-27 19:53:25 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Let represent the number of hours it would take A to fill the jar by itself. Since A pumps twice as fast as B, it would take B two times longer to fill the jar, so represents the number of hours it would take B to fill the jar by itself. Since is the amount of time for A to fill the jar, is the amount of the jar that A can fill in 1 hour. Likewise, B can fill in one hour. And together they can fill: of the jar in 1 hour. Add 'em up: And we know it takes 5 hours to fill the jar working together, so we can conclude that together they can fill of the jar in 1 hour, therefore: Solve for to get the time for A to fill the jar by itself (Hint cross-multiply). B is twice that value. John

 Functions/232209: How do you find the domain and range for the following Points? {(1,3) (1,0) (1,-2) ( 1,8)} And is it a function. Thank you1 solutions Answer 171664 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-10-27 19:30:24 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The domain is the set of values that can be taken by the independent or input variable -- generally the . You have four ordered pairs in your set, and all of the -coordinates are equal to 1. Therefore the domain is . The range is the set of all values of the dependent variable resulting from all values of the independent variable. Therefore the range is , which are the four -coordinates. A relation is a function if and only if every element in the domain corresponds to one and only one element in the range. Here you have the element 1 in the domain that corresponds to 4 different elements in the range. Not a function. If you graphed these four points, you would find that you would be able to draw a vertical line that would contain more than one of the points (in fact, the line would contain all four points). Any time you can find such a vertical line, your relation is NOT a function. John

 Systems-of-equations/232127: solve by substituion, 6m +n= 28 m-7n=62 what is the solution set. I came upt with (3,4) am I close1 solutions Answer 171625 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-10-27 18:01:10 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The answer to the question posed would certainly depend on what you mean by "close." On the other hand, the concept of "close" doesn't apply here. An answer that differs from the correct answer by 1 is just as wrong as one that differs by 500. Now, if you would care to write back and show the work you did, perhaps I can find where you made your error. John

Add -7 Multiply by remembering to switch the sense of the inequality because of multiplying by a negative. Draw a number line. Put a little circle at -4. Put a little circle at 6. Make a fat line that connects the two little circles. Make sure your little circles are open circles -- not filled in like the picture. John
 Triangles/231834: the perimeter of the equilateral triangle is 7 inches less than twice the perimeter of the square..what does that mean?1 solutions Answer 171479 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-10-26 21:56:24 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The perimeter of any plane figure is the distance all the way around it. For an equilateral triangle, it is 3 times the measure of one of the sides. For a square it is 4 times the measure of one of the sides. Measure one side of your square. Multiply by 4. Then multiply by 2. Then subtract 7. You will now have the perimeter of the triangle. John

I'm going to go way out on a limb and presume that you mean a quadratic equation. In fact, there is no such thing as a quadratic equation that cannot be solved by factoring. Even if you have irrational or complex roots, you still have roots. And if you have roots, you have factors. Now, in many cases it may be very difficult to find the factors and you may have to resort to other means to solve the equation. For example, consider: which does not factor over the integers (doesn't factor over the rationals, either). The quadratic formula tells us that the roots are: Meaning that: Deucedly difficult to solve by factoring, but not entirely impossible. On the other hand, if you did not ask the ENTIRE question, that is, if the question was "...cannot solve by factoring over the real numbers (or rationals, or integers)" then you could give: : No real number factors as an example for the second half of your question.

 Numbers_Word_Problems/231621: The sum of 3 numbers is 10. The first is twice the second. The sum of the second and third is 6. Find the numbers.1 solutions Answer 171377 by solver91311(16877)   on 2009-10-26 16:56:48 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! You should be able to do this one in your head. If the sum of the three is 10 and the sum of the last two is 6, then the first one has to be 4. Then if the first is twice the second, the second must be 2. And from that you get that the last one must be 6 minus 2 is 4. John
