Hi Xin; given f(x)=2x-5, construct a function g such that g(f(x))=x g(x)=function such that when we replace x with 2x-5, the result is x. We would begin with... g(x)=(1/2)(.......) (1/2)(2)=1, the coefficient of x. We now have... g(x)=(1/2)(x) g(f(x))=(1/2)(2x-5)=x-2...

Hi Xin; question 1: factor 6x^2-5x+10 I cannot factor this. I can factor this... 6x2+4x-10 (3x+5)(2x-2) or (6x+10)(x-1) question 2: factor kax-kay+shx+shy I think this is 2(shx) question 3: factor x^2+16 I cannot factor...

Hi Karen; FIRST CAR...70 miles/hour....distance x SECOND CAR....x miles/hour...distance (x-50) After 2.5 hours, the FIRST CAR is... distance=(velocity)(time) s=vt distance=(70 miles/hour)(2.5 hours) The unit of hours is in the denominator and numerator. It...

perimeter with variables (answer)

Hi Karen; length....x width...(1/2)x-1 perimeter=64 perimeter=2(length+width) 64=2[x+(1/2)x-1] 64=2[(3/2)x-1] 64=3x-2 Add 2 to both sides... 64+2=3x-2+2 66=3x Divide both sides by 3... 66/3=(3x)/3 22=x length...

solving for A (answer)

Hi Sarah; S=(A-RT)/(1-R) This can also be written as... S/1=(A-RT)/(1-R) Cross-multiply... S(1-R)=(1)(A-RT) S(1-R)=A-RT S-SR=A-RT Add RT to both sides... S-SR+RT=A-RT+RT S-SR+RT=A

Hi Alex; width...x length...7x+3 perimeter=2(length+width) 54=2(x+7x+3) 54=2(8x+3) 54=16x+6 Subtract 6 from both sides... 54-6=16x+6-6 48=16x Divide both sides by 16... 48/16=(16x)/16 3=x width....3 length...

What do you do on the problem 11/6 (answer)

Hi Sara; 11/6 --------------------- ____ 6|11 -------------------- The number 6 goes into the number 11 once... __1__ 6|11 6 5 We multiply (1)(6) and place the result of 6 under the 11. We subtract...

Hi Sandy; (70 mm)/(99 feet)=(4 mm)/x Let's note that the unit of mm is in the numerators of both sides. It cancels... (70 mm)/(99 feet)=(4 mm)/x 70/(99 feet)=4/x The only unit remaining is feet. This is what we want... Cross-multiply... 70x=(4)(99 feet) 70x=396...
