 Rational-functions/330956: Solve for x. State any restrictions on the variables. xy-2x=3y1 solutions Answer 237275 by solver91311(17077)   on 2010-08-11 16:06:35 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Factor out of the LHS. Multiply both sides by Restrict to values that do not make the denominator equal zero. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
 Probability-and-statistics/330678: a jury is made up of 2 males and 8 females. Two jurors are selected at random for a follow up interview. Find the probability that both are males1 solutions Answer 237080 by solver91311(17077)   on 2010-08-10 19:57:04 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The probability of successes in trials where is the probability of success on any given trial is given by: Where is the number of combinations of things taken at a time and is calculated by You need 2 successes in 2 trials where the probability of success on one trial is . Which looks like a bunch of nasty arithmetic until you consider that: and So: John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
 Linear-equations/330700: What similarities and differences do you see between functions and linear equations? Are all linear equations functions? Is there an instance in which a linear equation is not a function?1 solutions Answer 237078 by solver91311(17077)   on 2010-08-10 19:39:45 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! A linear equation, in most cases is a function. There are many functions, however, that are not linear. A linear equation relates a dependent variable to one or more independent variables such that a set of ordered pairs defining a straight line is defined. A function, in general, relates a dependent variable to one or more independent variables such that a relation where a given value for the input variable (or set of values) determines a unique value for the dependent variable. Linear equations fit the function definition except in certain special cases. All linear equations in , except linear equations that graph to a vertical line, namely equations of the form where is any real number, are functions. The discussion gets a bit more complex for but the idea is the same. If you can define a line that violates the idea of a single value of the function for a single value of the input variable (or set of values for the input variables), then you have a case where you do not have a function. So, no, there is not an instance in which a linear equation is not a function, there are an infinity of instances in which a linear equation is not a function, namely, in space anyway, one for every real value of in .

 Parallelograms/330692: what are the odds of rolling a 5 on a standard number cube?1 solutions Answer 237067 by solver91311(17077)   on 2010-08-10 18:56:40 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The probability of anything is the number of ways that it can happen that you would consider a success divided by the number of ways it can happen total -- successes and failures. There is one way to get a 5 out of 6 different ways the cube can land. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
 Miscellaneous_Word_Problems/330689: 12,000 sugar cubes stacked together makes what size cube?1 solutions Answer 237066 by solver91311(17077)   on 2010-08-10 18:55:28 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! You cannot make a cube stacking exactly 12,000 cubes. In order for a number of cubes to be stacked together to form a larger cube, you would have to start with a number of smaller cubes such that the number is a perfect cube, such as: John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
 Linear-systems/330688: How does (2,0); (3,0) equial 3x+2y=6 can you explain so I can help my daugther1 solutions Answer 237063 by solver91311(17077)   on 2010-08-10 18:50:13 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! In the first place, if you can't spell "daughter" correctly, you probably are the daughter. Don't know what you are trying to accomplish with that story. In the second place, an ordered pair, such as is not "equal" to a two-variable linear equation such as . Ordered pairs are elements of the solution set of such an equation. In fact there are an infinite number of ordered pairs that satisfy the given equation. In order to determine whether a particular ordered pair is a member of the solution set, substitute the first value in the ordered pair for in the equation and substitute the second value for in the equation. Then do the indicated arithmetic. If you end up with a true statement, in this case something that looks like , then the ordered pair is an element of the solution set. On the other hand if you end up with an absurdity, something like , then you know the ordered pair is NOT an element of the solution set. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it

There is an element of opinion as to the answer for this one. As far as I'm concerned a square is simply a special case of a rhombus since the only requirement for a quadrilateral to be classified as a rhombus is that the four sides be equal in measure. Any square with sides of 12 units will have an area that is 144 square units exactly. And rhombus that is not also a square that has sides of 12 units will have an area less than 144 square units. Hence, since the square case is allowed, answer c. On the other hand, if your instructor expects you to exclude squares, then answer d. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it

It can be anything you like, but 0, 1, or some other small integer usually works well and makes the arithmetic easier. Step 2. Substitute that value in place of x in your equation. Do the arithmetic and determine the value of y that results. Step 3. Take the value of x that you selected for step 1 and the value of y that you calculated in step 2 and form an ordered pair (x,y). Step 4. Plot the ordered pair from Step 3 on your graph. Remember that the x value is the distance right or left along the horizontal axis and the y value is the distance up or down along the vertical axis. Step 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 with a different value for x. Step 6. Draw a line across your graph that passes through the two points that you plotted.

Here's the problem she gave us: Birmingham and Oxford are 60 miles away.Bhams west and Oxford is east.It's 2:00 PM.Both Chris and Annette are leaving.(Annette going to Bham and Chris to Oxford)Annette's going 80 MPH while Chris is going 60.They meet somewhere between there.Where do they meet(ex.12 miles from Bham,its an awnser like that) and what time? help?please?1 solutions Answer 236772 by solver91311(17077)   on 2010-08-09 19:06:57 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Sorry to disappoint, but this has nothing whatever to do with the distributive property. This is a relative rate problem. Since one of them is going 80 and the other 60 they are going 140 relative to each other. They have 60 miles to cover together, so the elapsed time when they meet is the distance divided by the rate, or 60 divided by 140, which is to say hour. Since Chris is going 60, he has traveled miles and he has accomplished this feat in minutes. So if they left at 2:00 pm it is 2:25.7 when they meet -- IF AND ONLY IF Annette didn't get stopped and cited for going 80 mph in a 65 mph zone.

Obviously one of the numbers must have 6 for a high order digit and the other must have 5 for the high order digit. So far then, we have 2 numbers, 6xy and 5ab. Again, it is obvious that we need to put the 4 and the 3 into the x and a positions, but which goes where? Intuitively, it would make sense for the 5 to be followed by 42 because that would maximize the number that is being multiplied by the number beginning with the 6.
