Since it is direct variation you can write: Substitute the values given for P and N, then calculate the value of k. Then substitute the the calculated value of k and the new value of N to calculate the resulting value of P. John Egw to Beta kai to Sigma My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
 Triangles/717250: if one side of a triangle is 6cm and the other is 8cm what is the last lines measurement?1 solutions Answer 440178 by solver91311(16897)   on 2013-02-21 16:12:45 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! No way to tell exactly since you didn't bother to mention whether this is a right triangle or not, and if it is a right triangle whether the side that measures 8 cm is the hypotenuse or one of the legs. The only thing that you can say for sure is that the measure of the missing side is in the interval John Egw to Beta kai to Sigma My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
 Travel_Word_Problems/717242: If it takes 7 minutes to go from point A to point B at a constant speed of 70 miles per hour, how many minutes does it take to travel the same route from point A to point B at a constant speed of 50 miles per hour?1 solutions Answer 440177 by solver91311(16897)   on 2013-02-21 15:49:14 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!

Everything is good except for the reason for the last step. Should be: " bisects by definition of Angle Bisector". The definition of an angle bisector is that the bisector divides the angle into two equal parts. You just showed in the previous step that the two parts are equal. Therefore the segment dividing the angle is a bisector by definition. Q.E.D. John Egw to Beta kai to Sigma My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
 test/717230: 1. You roll two dice. What is the probability that you roll (a) doubles? (b) a sum greater than 9? (c) doubles or a sum greater than 9? 1 solutions Answer 440160 by solver91311(16897)   on 2013-02-21 15:13:13 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! There are 36 possible outcomes when rolling a pair of standard 6-sided dice. There are 6 different doubles. There is 1 way to make 12, 2 ways to make 11, and 3 ways to make 10. There are 6 ways to make doubles and 6 ways to make greater than 9 as we have seen, but two of the ways to make doubles are already counted in the 6 ways to make greater than 9. So 4 plus 6 equals 10 possible successes. John Egw to Beta kai to Sigma My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it

What are the values of a and b at each extreme point?1 solutions Answer 440129 by solver91311(16897)   on 2013-02-21 13:21:51 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Step 1: Graph the constraint inequalities. From the looks of the objective function, the values have to both be non-negative to achieve a maximum, so also graph and as additional constraints. Hint: When graphing constraints for a graphical solution to linear programming problems, it is often convenient to shade each inequality graph in the opposite sense than would ordinarily be done. That is to say shade the side of the line that is NOT the solution set. The result is that the feasibility area will be more visually obvious because it will be the only area of the graph with no shading at all. Step 2: The feasibility area is where the solution sets overlap. Step 3: Determine the critical points. These will be the vertices of the feasibility polygon (a quadrilateral in the case of the given problem). Step 4: Test the objective function at the values of the coordinates of each of the critical points defined in Step 3. The optimum solution, if one exists, will be the set of vertex coordinates that make the objective function the maximum value. It is possible that two adjacent vertices give the same objective function result. In such case, there is no unique optimum. Rather, any point on the line segment that joins those two vertices gives an optimum result. Laying out one of these problems is a significant amount of work; enough that I don't care to do it for free.
