Hi Nyia; Ivan and Jeff buy a package of 8 pens for \$4.00. Ivan wants 5 of the pens and jeff wants 3. how much should each student pay? Ivan should pay ___\$2.50___________ and Jeff should pay _____\$1.50________.     cost-per-pen is... (\$4.00)/(8 pens) \$0.50/pen IVAN...

Hi M; -6(a+8) (-6)(a)=-6a (-6)(8)=-48 -6a-48

Hi Daisy; I agree, the answer is B.

Hi Jessica; 22%=0.22 x=number 0.22x=58.52 Divide both sides by 0.22 (0.22x)/0.22=58.52/0.22 x=266   Let's check our work... 266(0.22)=58.52

Hi Makayla; area=pi(r2) This is actually an equation, not expression.  An expression does not have the = sign. area=pi(5p-3m)2 We can expand the parenthetical equation. Let's FOIL (5p-3m)(5p-3m) FIRST...(5p)(5p)=25p2 OUTER...(5p)(-3m)=-15pm INNER...(-3m)(5p)=-15pm LAST...

Hi Faye; actual cost=x 20%=0.20 price mark-up=0.20x selling price=\$4,740   \$4,740=x+0.20x \$4,740=1.20x Divide both sides by 1.20... (\$4,740)/(1.2)=x \$3,950=x   Let's check our work... \$3,950+(20% of \$3,950)=\$4,740 \$3,950&...

Hi Carmalita; f(x) = -7x2 + 3x + 1 There are two techniques to calculate the x-coordinate of the vertex... x=-b/2a x=-3/[(2)(-7)] x=-3/-14 x=3/14   or   Take the first derivative of the equation and set to zero.   We are setting to zero...

Hi Daisy; Let's look at the context of answer A... The green crest of the hill on which I sit; And it is summer, glorious, deep-toned summer, The very crown of nature's changing year (emphasis supplied) There is no mention of evening.   Let's look at answer B...

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...

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...
