Good evening, Shayna! For the first question, to factor the polynomial, we kinda sorta have to use FOIL backwards. You probably already know that when you have two binomials multiplied, you sort it out by multiplying the (F)irst terms, then the (O)uter terms, then the (I)nner terms,...

9 less than m (answer)

Hey, Kiss! It's difficult to ascertain exactly what you're asking here. Is "9 less than m" part of an equation you're trying to work out, or part of an inequality, or? If you're simply asking how to write 9 less than m, that would be m-9. In my experience, word problems...

Good morning, Dalyia! The first thing you should do is mark these three points on a graph, just so you have a visual of what you're working on. After you've plotted the points, draw a line from C to (-2,0), then a line from (-2,2) to B. Notice you have two right triangles now. Now,...

Good evening, Kaiden!   Here's a hint:  Each previous term is being multiplied by a fraction to get the next term.  Can you figure out what each term is being multiplied by to get the next number?   If you can't figure it out, let us know.   Hope...

Hi, Ryan.   Do you have any specific examples which you need help with?  Different prisms require different formulas to solve for their areas.   Check out this link:  http://www.math.com/tables/geometry/volumes.htm   There, you will find volume formulas...

Good morning, Vivi!   Yes, this does have to do with mean.  In order to determine which class had the best overall average, you will need to add up every score for each class, then divide those totals by the number of values entered for each class respectively.   Hope...

Hello, L! I see a few more problems with the paragraph. -Goldfinch should be capitalized in the first sentence. -'black and white' would be better written as black-and-white. -through out should be throughout. (Second sentence) -In the sentence starting with, "They...

Hello, Jane! I'm not positive I fully understand the question, but here's what I'm thinking. Let me know if I've misunderstood. First, add the numbers of each groups' members to find the total number of members. 4+5+6+8+2=25. To find the percentage of each...

Hi, Leah!   x^2+7x-2 cannot be factored.  The constant (c), which is 2, has only one pair of factors:  2 and 1.  No matter if either/both is positive or negative, 2 and 1 cannot be added or subtracted to make 7.     This quadratic cannot be reduced...
