Complementary angles mean that the two angles, when added together, equal 90°.   Let's call the first angle x, and its second, complementary angle 2x.  So, we have x + 2x = 90.   Solving for x, we get x = 30.   Since the first angle was called x, that...

Quotient rule: "low d'high - high d'low, square the denominator and away we go"   This essentially means "[ (bottom function)*(derivative of the top function) - (top function)*(derivative of the bottom function) ] / (bottom function)2   Applying the quotient...

You have to use the quadratic equation to solve this problem.   The general formula for the quadratic equation is x = {-b +- sqrt [ b2 - 4(a)(c) ]} / (2a)   Applying this formula to this problem, we get: {-(-7) +- sqrt [ (-7)2 - 4(2)(4) ]} / (2a)   From...

Maybe it's just my end, but I don't see the expression.

Hi John,   To solve this problem, first thing you'll want to do is multiply out the first set of parenthesis.  So, you want to multiply (5x-2) times (x2-x3).  This gives 5x3 - 5x4 - 2x2 + 2x3 = -5x4 + 7x3 - 2x2    Now, take (-5x4 + 7x3...
