Lines that are parallel have the same slopes. The slope is the number in front of x, so the slope of y = 3x-4 is 3. So our new line's slope will also be 3 Then we can use the point-slope formula for a line: y - y1 = m(x-x1) where m is the slope and (x1,y1)...

kyles wallet has 15five and ten dollar bills totaling $130. how many of each bill does he hAVE? (answer)

f = number of $5 bills t = number of $10 bills f + t = 15 5f + 10t = 130 t = 15-f 5f + 10(15-f) = 130 5f + 150 - 10f = 130 -5f = -20 f = 4 t = 11 There are 11 $10 bills and 4 $5 bills.

Math Word Problem (answer)

x = amount invested at 6% y = amount invested at 9% x+y = 25,000 interest income from 6% investment: .06x interest income from 9% investment: .09y total interest income = 1,860 = .06x + .09y two equations, two variables x+y=25000...

A = P(1+r/n)^(nt) A = new amount P = principal (original amount) r = annual interest rate (as a decimal) n = number of compounding periods / year t = number of years P = 1000 r = .06 n = 4 (compounding quarterly) t = 1/4 (3 months = 1/4...

(X-1)^-2=25 (answer)

(x-1)-2 = 25 (x-1)-2 is the same as 1/(x-1)2 1/(x-1)2=25 1=25(x-1)2 1/25 = (x-1)2 1/5 = √(x-1)2 + or - 1/5 = x-1 x-1 = 1/5 or x-1 = -1/5 x = 1 1/5 or x = 4/5

The problem does not mention compounding interest, so we can assume simple interest. Interest = Principal * Rate * Time 12%: I12=x*.12*1=.12x 6%: I6=(6300-x)*.06*1=378-.06x Total Yield = I12+I6=660 .12x+378-.06x=660...

False, that is called the Poisson distribution

Use an exponential decay equation: A(t) = Ao e^(-kt) where Ao is the starting amount at time t = 3 hours, we have half of what we started with, so 0.5Ao: .5Ao = Aoe^(-k*3) .5=e^(-3k) ln(.5)=-3k k=ln(.5)/-3 k=.231 A(t) =...

Solve For All Values of X (answer)

sin2x = sinx use the identity: sin2x=2sinxcosx 2sinxcosx = sinx 2sinxcosx - sinx = 0 sinx(2cosx-1) = 0 sinx = 0 OR 2cosx-1=0 sin x = 0 when x is an integer multiple of pi, or x = npi (n = 0, +-1,...

5x2y - 3xy2 = 14 (2,1): 5(2)2(1) - 3(2)(1)2 = 14 5(4)(1) - 3(2)(1) = 14 20 - 6 = 14 14 = 14 d/dx (5x2y - 3xy2 = 14) 5x2(dy/dx) + 10xy - [3x(2y dy/dx) + 3y2] = 0 5x2(dy/dx) + 10xy - 6xy(dy/dx) - 3y2...

We can factor 9-x on the bottom as (3-√x)(3+√x). Then we can cancel out the 3-√x s. We are left with 1/(3+√x). Now if we plug in 9 for x. We get a value of 1/6, so it is continuous at x=9.

insanely hard question (answer)

We can rewrite the term of the infinite series like this: 2 * (4/5)^n Whenever you have a number raised to n like this [r^n], it's a geometric series. A geometric series converges when the absolute value of the number being raised to a power is less than 1. It...

To find max and min, we need the first derivative. f(x) = xsqrt(x2+4) = x(x2+4)1/2 f ' (x) = x*1/2(x2+4)-1/2 * 2x + (x2+4)1/2 * 1 = x2/sqrt(x2+4) + sqrt(x^2+4) = x2/sqrt(x2+4) + (x2+4)/sqrt(x2+4) =...

Find the sum of the geometric series (answer)

Formula for sum of geometric series: Sum = a/(1-r) where a is the first term and r is what we multiply by each time. a = 32 To find r: -8/32 = -1/4; 2/-8 = -1/4. So r = -1/4 Sum = 32/(1-(-1/4)) = 32/(1+1/4) = 32/(5/4)...

Suppose $9,000 is invested in an account at an annual interest rate of 5.2% compounded continously. (answer)

For interest compounding continuously, we need this formula: A = Pert A is Amount at some time t P is the initial amount r is the interest rate (as a decimal) t is number of years For our problem, we would plug in: A...

The problem discusses two conditions about the field: the area and the length of fencing. First, the entire field has an area of 1,000,000 ft^2. Since we don't know the dimensions yet, let's call those x and y. Since it's a rectangle, the area equation would be: 1,000,000...

How to find the volume of a frustum? (answer)

You're on the right track If you extend the height and slant height, we have a "missing" cone. Let's call the missing cone's slant height x. So now we can think of a proportion: smaller missing cone to bigger overall cone (actual + missing) small radius/big radius...

right left behavior of graph (answer)

Right and left behavior refer to what graph approaches as x goes to infinity (right) and negative infinity (left) if the function is 5 minus 7/(2x-3x^2), then when x gets big positive or big negative 7/(2x-3x^2) goes to 0 and we are just left with 5. So the graph approaches y = 5 (as...
