 Parallelograms/444485: "The pairs (-2, -3), (-2, 2), (4, -3) can serve as three of four vertices for three different parallelograms. Find the fourth vertex of each parallelogram." I am completely lost. I know the fourth set is (4, 2), but what else do I have to solve for? The question says 3 parallelograms? There is nothing in my book regarding this...help please? Liz1 solutions Answer 306369 by solver91311(17077)   on 2011-05-03 16:41:04 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! "I know the fourth set is (4,2)" is not precisely correct. What you know is that one possibility for the fourth ordered pair is (4,2). But how about (-8,2) which makes a different parallelogram with the three given points? There is yet another point that combines with the three given points to give yet another different parallelogram. I'll leave that to you to find.

 Numbers_Word_Problems/444464: the sum of two numbers is 25. One number is twice the second plus seven. What are the two numbers1 solutions Answer 306363 by solver91311(17077)   on 2011-05-03 16:03:23 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Can't tell. Your problem statement is ambiguous. Do you mean that to obtain one of the numbers I have to multiply the other number by 2 and then add 7, or do I have to add 7 to the other number and then multiply that sum by 2. The way your problem is stated, it could be either way. One way has integer answers and the other way has rational answers, but you don't specify other than to say they are "numbers" which could be anything.

Use the rational roots theorem. If a polynomial equation with rational coefficients has a rational root, then that root will be of the form where is an even divisor of the constant term of the equation and is an even divisior of the lead coefficient. Possible rational roots are , , , and . Use synthetic division to find the first real and rational root. This is an equation of odd degree with rational coefficients, hence there must be at least one real root and it must be rational. Review the process of synthetic division at Purple Math: Synthetic Division Be certain to review all four pages. The quotient from your successful synthetic division will provide the coeffients of a quadratic equation. From these coefficients, you can calculate the discriminant to determine the character of the remaining two roots. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it

 Inequalities/443917: How do you write an open sentence involving absolute value? 1 solutions Answer 306126 by solver91311(17077)   on 2011-05-02 16:55:03 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Write an open sentence, put absolute value bars in it somewhere. Make sure you haven't written something impossible so as to make it always false or always true. For example, don't write: That is because the absolute value of anything is ALWAYS positive, hence no expression contained in absolute value can take on a negative value. The example is a sentence involving absolute value but it is a closed sentence because it is always false. Also, don't write: any real-valued expression That is because no matter what is in the absolute value bars in the example, the value will always be positive. This is also a sentence that involves absolute value but is a closed sentence, this time because it is always true. Now all you have to do is write one where you cannot say the sentence is always true or always false. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
