$3.75 in quarters and nickles in her car. The number of nickles is fifteen more than the number of q

$3.75 in quarters and nickels in her car. The number of nickels is fifteen more than the number of quarters. How many of each type of coin does she have?
Let the number of nickels be n, and the number of quarters be q. We know nickels are 0.05, and quarters are 0.25. We're given:
[LIST=1]
[*]n = q + 15
[*]0.05n + 0.25q = 3.75
[/LIST]
Substituting (1) into (2), we get:
0.05(q + 15) + 0.25q = 3.75
0.05q + 0.75 + 0.25q = 3.75
Combine like term:
0.3q + 0.75 = 3.75
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=0.3q%2B0.75%3D3.75&pl=Solve']Typing this equation into our calculator[/URL], we get:
[B]q = 10[/B]
Substituting q = 10 into Equation (1), we get:
n = 10 + 15
[B]n = 25[/B]

[/B]
The 200th term is:
f(200) = 2(200) - 13
f(200) = 400 - 13
f(200) = [B]387[/B]

0,7,14,21
What is the next number?
What is the 1000th term?
We're adding 7 to the last term, so we get a next term of:
21 + 7 = [B]28
[/B]
For our nth term, we notice a pattern for the nth term of:
7n - 7
[LIST]
[*]n = 1 --> 7(1) - 7 = 0
[*]n = 2 --> 7(2) - 7 = 7
[*]n = 3 --> 7(3) - 7 = 14
[/LIST]
For n = 1000, we have:
7(1000) - 7 = 7000 - 7 = [B]6993[/B]

1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5 What is the next number? What is the 89th term of the sequence?

1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5
What is the next number?
What is the 89th term of the sequence?
Formula for nth term is 1/n
Next number is n = 5, so we have [B]1/5[/B]
With n = 89, we have [B]1/89[/B]

1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16
The next number in the sequence is 1/32. What is the function machine you would use to find the nth term of this sequence?
Hint: look at the denominators
We notice that
1/2^0 = 1/1 = 1
1/2^1 = 1/2
1/2^2 = 1/4
1/2^3 = 1/8
1/2^4 = 1/32
So we write our explicit formula for term n:
f(n) = [B]1/2^(n - 1)[/B]

1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, ...

At first glance, we see powers of 2 in the denominator of every term except the first one.
But if we remember 2^0 = 1, we get our breakthrough.
1/2^0 = 1/1 = 1
Therefore, we stagger the powers of 2 by 1 less than the term we are on:
a(n) = [B]1/2^(n - 1)

What is the next number?
What is the 50th term?
We see that 1^2 = 1, 2^2 = 4, 3^2 = 9, 4^2 = 16, 5^2 = 25
We build a formula for the nth term:
f(n) = n^2
The next number means n = 6th term:
f(6) = 6^2 = [B]36

We build our sequence function using this pattern:
f(n) = n^3
With n = 10, we have:
f(10) = 10^3
f(10) = [B]1,000[/B]

1.25, 2, 2.75, 3.5 What is the 100th term?

1.25, 2, 2.75, 3.5 What is the 100th term?
The formula of nth term is:
f(n) = 0.75n + 0.5
So the 100th term is:
f(100) = 0.75(100) + 0.5
f(100) = 75 + 0.5
f(100) = [B]75.5[/B]

10^1 = 10
10^3 = 1000
10^5 = 100,000
10^7 = 10,000,000
f(n) = 10^(2n - 1)
We build the 80th term:
f(80) = 10^(2(80) - 1)
f(80) = 10^(160 - 1)
f(80) = 10^[B]159[/B]

15y + 13/c = m for y

15y + 13/c = m for y
Subtract 13/c from each side to isolate the y term:
15y + 13/c - 13/c = m - 13/c
Cancel the 13/c on the left side and we get
15y = m - 13/c
Now, divide each side by 15 to isolate y:
15y/15 = (m - 13/c)/15
Cancel the 15 on the left side, and we get:
y = [B](m - 13/c)/15[/B]

2 consecutive even integers that equal 118

Let x be the first even integer. That means the next consecutive even integer must be x + 2.
Set up our equation:
x + (x + 2) = 118
Group x terms
2x + 2 = 118
Subtract 2 from each side
2x = 116
Divide each side by 2
x = 58
Which means the next consecutive even integer is 58 + 2 = 60
So our two consecutive even integers are [B]58, 60[/B]
Check our work:
58 + 60 = 118

24 coloring books, 60 crayons, and 84 markers can be packaged into at most how many identical packag

24 coloring books, 60 crayons, and 84 markers can be packaged into at most how many identical packages? How many of each would each package contain?
First, determine the greatest common factor (GCF) of 24, 60, and 84 using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/gcflcm.php?num1=24&num2=60&num3=84&pl=GCF']GCF calculator[/URL].
GCF(24, 60, 84) = 12
So we have 12 identical packages.
Now, figure out how many coloring books, crayons, and markers for each package
[LIST]
[*]24/12 = 2 coloring books
[*]60/12 = 5 crayons
[*]84/12 = 7 markers
[/LIST]
[B]So we have 12 identical packages, each containing 2 coloring books, 5 crayons, and 7 markers[/B]

2consecutiveevenintegerssuchthatthesmalleraddedto5timesthelargergivesasumof70

2 consecutive even integers such that the smaller added to 5 times the larger gives a sum of 70.
Let the first, smaller integer be x. And the second larger integer be y. Since they are both even, we have:
[LIST=1]
[*]x = y - 2 <-- Since they're consecutive even integers
[*]x + 5y = 70 <-- Smaller added to 5 times the larger gives a sum of 70
[/LIST]
Substitute (1) into (2):
(y - 2) + 5y = 70
Group like terms:
(1 + 5)y - 2 = 70
6y - 2 = 70
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=6y-2%3D70&pl=Solve']Typing 6y - 2 = 70 into our search engine[/URL], we get:

2x/5 - 9y = 6 for x

2x/5 - 9y = 6 for x
Add 9y to each side to isolate the x term:
2x/5 - 9y + 9y = 9y + 6
Cancel the 9y's on the left side:
2x/5 = 9y + 6
Multiply each side by 5:
2x * 5/5 = 5(9y + 6)
Cancel the 5's on the left side and we get:
2x = 5(9y + 6)
Divide each side by 2 to isolate x:
2x/2 = 5/2(9y + 6)
Cancel the 2's on the left side and we get our final literal equation of:
x = [B]5/2(9y + 6)[/B]

For term n, we have a pattern:
f(n) = 5(n - 1) + 3
Set this equal to 5008
5(n - 1) + 3 = 5008
Using our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=5%28n-1%29%2B3%3D5008&pl=Solve']equation solver,[/URL] we get:

We see that each sequence term alternates between subtracting 2 and subtracting 5. Since the last term, 17, was found by subtracting 5, our next term is found by subtracting 2 from 17:
17 - 2 = [B]15[/B]

3abc^4/12a^3(b^3c^2)^2 * 8ab^-4c/4a^2b

3abc^4/12a^3(b^3c^2)^2 * 8ab^-4c/4a^2b
Expand term 1:
3abc^4/12a^3(b^3c^2)^2
3abc^4/12a^3b^6c^4
Now simplify term 1:
3/12 = 1/4
c^4 terms cancel
Subtract powers from variables since the denominator powers are higher:
b^(6 - 1) = b^5
a^(3 - 1) = a^2
1/4a^2b^5
Now simplify term 2:
8ab^-4c/4a^2b
8/4 = 2
2c/a^(2 - 1)b^(1 - -4)
2c/ab^5
Now multiply simplified term 1 times simplified term 2:
1/4a^2b^5 * 2c/ab^5
(1 * 2c)/(4a^2b^5 * ab^5)
2c/4a^(2 + 1)b^(5 + 5)
2c/4a^3b^10
2/4 = 1/2, so we have:
[B]c/2a^3b^10[/B]

4 rectangular strips of wood, each 30 cm long and 3 cm wide, are arranged to form the outer section of a picture frame. Determine the area inside the wooden frame.
Area inside forms a square, with a length of 30 - 3 - 3 = 24. We subtract 3 twice, because we account for 2 rectangular strips with a width of 3.
Area of a square is side * side. So we have 24 * 24 = [B]576cm^2[/B]

52% of a town's households have children and 25% have pets. If 12% have both, what percent have neither
Let C represent households with children. Let P represents households with pets. We have the formula to determine households with Children or Pets as C U P (C Union P) or (C or P):
C U P = C + P - (C and P)
C U P = 52% + 25% - 12%
C U P = 65%
Now, if we want to find what percent have neither, we use (C U P)':
(C U P)' = 100% - (C U P)
(C U P)' = 100% - 65%
(C U P)' = [B]35%[/B]

A bakery sells 5800 muffins in 2010. The bakery sells 7420 muffins in 2015. Write a linear model that represents the number y of muffins that the bakery sells x years after 2010.
Find the number of muffins sold after 2010 through 2015:
7,420 - 5,800 = 1,620
Now, since the problem states a linear sales model, we need to determine the sales per year:
1,620 muffins sold since 2010 / 5 years = 324 muffins per year.
Build our linear model:
[B]y = 5,800 + 324x

A carpet cleaner charges $75 to clean the first 180 sq ft of carpet. There is an additional charge

A carpet cleaner charges $75 to clean the first 180 sq ft of carpet. There is an additional charge of 25¢ per square foot for any footage that exceeds 180 sq ft and $1.30 per step for any carpeting on a staircase. A customers cleaning bill was $253.95. This included the cleaning of a staircase with 14 steps. In addition to the staircase, how many square feet of carpet did the customer have cleaned?
Calculate the cost of the staircase cleaning.
Staircase cost = $1.30 * steps
Staircase cost = $1.30 * 14
Staircase cost = $18.20
Subtract this from the cost of the total cleaning bill of $253.95. We do this to isolate the cost of the carpet.
Carpet cost = $253.95 - $18.20
Carpet cost = $235.75
Now, the remaining carpet cost can be written as:
75 + $0.25(s - 180) = $235.75 <-- were s is the total square foot of carpet cleaned
Multiply through and simplify:
75 + 0.25s - 45 = $235.75
Combine like terms:

three-quarters means 3/4 or 0.75. So we have the following function P(y) where y is the number of years since purchase price:
P(y) = 24000 * 0.75^y
First four terms:
P(1) = 24000 * 0.75 = [B]18000[/B]
P(2) = 18000 * 0.75 = [B]13500[/B]

A cashier has 44 bills, all of which are $10 or $20 bills. The total value of the money is $730. How many of each type of bill does the cashier have?
Let a be the amount of $10 bills and b be the amount of $20 bills. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + b = 44
[*]10a + 20b = 730

We rearrange equation 1 in terms of a. We subtract b from each side and we get:

Now we substitute equation (1) for a into equation (2):
10(44 - b) + 20b = 730
Multiply through to remove the parentheses:
440 - 10b + 20b = 730
Group like terms:
440 + 10b = 730
Now, to solve for b, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=440%2B10b%3D730&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:

A dad gave his 3 sons each the same amount of money in an envelope. He took $20 from one son for getting a D on a math test and he gave another son an extra $35 for doing extra chores. Combined, the sons had $81. Figure out how much each son had.
Let x, y, and z be the money each son received.
To begin, x = y = z.
But then, Dad took 20 from son X and gave it to son Y.
So now, x = y - 20
Next, he gave Son Z an extra $35 for chores
So z is now y + 35 since y and z used to be equal
Combined, they all have 81.
x + y + z = 181
But with the changes, it is:
(y - 20) + y + (y + 35)
Combine like terms:
3y - 20 + 35 = 81
3y + 15 = 81
Subtract 15 from each side:
3y = 66
Divide each side by 3 to isolate y
y = 22
Since x = y - 20, x = 2
Since z = y + 35, we have z = 57
Checking our work, 2 + 22 + 57 = 81.

A father is K years old and his son is M years younger. The sum of their ages is 53.

A father is K years old and his son is M years younger. The sum of their ages is 53.
Father's Age = K
Son's Age = K - M
and we know K + (K - M) = 53
Combine like terms:
2K - M = 53
Add M to each side:
2K - M + M = 53 + M
Cancel the M's on the left side, we get:
2K = 53+ M
Divide each side by 2:
2K/2 = (53 + M)/2
Cancel the 2's on the left side:
K = [B](53 + M)/2[/B]

2x + y
[U]Twice the first number plus the second totals 35 means we set 2x + y equal to 35:[/U]
2x + y = 35
Therefore, we have a system of two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x + 2y = 10

A food truck sells salads for $6.50 each and drinks for $2.00 each. The food trucks revenue from selling a total of 209 salads and drinks in one day was $836.50. How many salads were sold that day?
Let the number of drinks be d. Let the number of salads be s. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]2d + 6.50s = 836.50
[*]d + s = 209
[/LIST]
We can use substitution to solve this system of equations quickly. The question asks for the number of salads (s). Therefore, we want all expressions in terms of s. Rearrange Equation 2 by subtracting s from both sides:
d + s - s = 209 - s
Cancel the s's, we get:
d = 209 - s
So we have the following system of equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]2d + 6.50s = 836.50
[*]d = 209 - s
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (2) into equation (1) for d:

Let's determine the years:
2000 - 1989 = 11
Let's determine the change in value:
125,000 - 70,000 = 55,000
Assuming a linear progression, we have:
55,000/11 = 5,000 per year increase
[B]y = 70,000 + 5,000v[/B] where v is the number of years after 1989
Plug in 11 to check our work

3 hour blocks = 2
With 7% = 0.07, we have:

Total Cost = 85 * 2 * 1.07
Total Cost = [B]181.9[/B]

Rearrange equation (1) in terms of a:
[LIST=1]

Now that I have equation (1) in terms of a, we can substitute into equation (2) for a:
15(20 - c) + 10c = 225
Solve for [I]c[/I] in the equation 15(20 - c) + 10c = 225
We first need to simplify the expression removing parentheses
Simplify 15(20 - c): Distribute the 15 to each term in (20-c)
15 * 20 = (15 * 20) = 300
15 * -c = (15 * -1)c = -15c
Our Total expanded term is 300-15c
Our updated term to work with is 300 - 15c + 10c = 225
We first need to simplify the expression removing parentheses
Our updated term to work with is 300 - 15c + 10c = 225
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group the c terms on the left hand side:[/B][/SIZE]
(-15 + 10)c = -5c
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Form modified equation[/B][/SIZE]
-5c + 300 = + 225
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 300 and 225. To do that, we subtract 300 from both sides
-5c + 300 - 300 = 225 - 300
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 300 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
-5c = -75
[SIZE=5][B]Step 5: Divide each side of the equation by -5[/B][/SIZE]
-5c/-5 = -75/-5
c = [B]15[/B]
Recall from equation (1) that a = 20 - c. So we substitute c = 15 into this equation to solve for a:
a = 20 - 15
a = [B]5[/B]

Subtract 1.5c from each side
4. s = 143 - 1.5c
Now, take (4) and (2), and plug it into (3)
12(0.5c) + 5c + 7(143 - 1.5c) = 1030

A vehicle purchased for $25,000 depreciates at a constant rate of 5%. Determine the approximate value of the vehicle 11 years after purchase. Round to the nearest whole dollar.
Depreciation at 5% means it retains 95% of the value. Set up the depreciation equation to get Book Value B(t) at time t.
B(t) = $25,000 * (1 - 0.05)^t
Simplifying, this is:
B(t) = $25,000 * (0.95)^t
The problem asks for B(11)
B(11) = $25,000 * (0.95)^11
B(11) = $25,000 * 0.5688
B(11) = [B]$14,220[/B]

A woman walked for 5 hours, first along a level road, then up a hill, and then she turned around and walked back to the starting point along the same path. She walks 4mph on level ground, 3 mph uphill, and 6 mph downhill. Find the distance she walked.
Hint: Think about d = rt, which means that t = d/r. Think about each section of her walk, what is the distance and the rate. You know that the total time is 5 hours, so you know the sum of the times from each section must be 5.
Let Level distance = L and hill distance = H. Add the times it took for each section of the walk:

An employee earns $7.00 an hour for the first 35 hours worked in a week and $10.50 for any hours over 35. One weeks paycheck (before deductions) was for $308.00. How many hours did the employee work?
Let's first check to see if the employee worked overtime:
Regular Hours: 35 * 7 = 245
Since the employee made $308, they worked overtime. Let's determine how much overtime money was made:
308 - 245 = 63
Now, to calculate the overtime hours, we divide overtime pay by overtime rate
63/10.50 = 6
Now figure out the total hours worked in the week:
Total Hours = Regular Pay Hours + Overtime Hours
Total Hours = 35 + 6

Colin was thinking of a number. Colin divides by 8, then adds 1 to get an answer of 2. What was the original number?
Let the number be n.
Divide by 8:
n/8
Then add 1:
n/8 + 1
The phrase [I]get an answer[/I] of means an equation, so we set n/8 + 1 equal to 2:
n/8 + 1 = 2
To solve for n, we subtract 1 from each side to isolate the n term:
n/8 + 1 - 1 = 2 - 1
Cancel the 1's on the left side, we get:
n/8 = 1
Cross multiply:
n = 8*1
n = [B]8[/B]

Consider the case of a manufacturer who has an automatic machine that produces an important part. Past records indicate that at the beginning of the data the machine is set up correctly 70 percent of the time. Past experience also shows that if the machine is set up correctly it will produce good parts 90 percent of the time. If it is set up incorrectly, it will produce good parts 40 percent of the time. Since the machine will produce 60 percent bad parts, the manufacturer is considering using a testing procedure.

Determine whether the statement is true or false. If 0 < a < b, then Ln a < Ln b

Determine whether the statement is true or false. If 0 < a < b, then Ln a < Ln b
We have a logarithmic property that states:
ln(a) - ln(b) = ln (a / b)
We're given a < b, so (a / b) < 1
Therefore:
ln (a / b) < 0
And since ln(a) - ln(b) = ln (a / b)
Then Ln(a) - Ln(b) < 0
Add Ln(b) to each side and we get:
Ln(a) - Ln(b) + Ln(b) < 0 + Ln(b)
Cancel the Ln(b) on the left side and we get:
Ln(a)

difference between 2 positive numbers is 3 and the sum of their squares is 117

difference between 2 positive numbers is 3 and the sum of their squares is 117
Declare variables for each of the two numbers:
[LIST]
[*]Let the first variable be x
[*]Let the second variable be y
[/LIST]
We're given 2 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x - y = 3
[*]x^2 + y^2 = 117
[/LIST]
Rewrite equation (1) in terms of x by adding y to each side:
[LIST=1]
[*]x = y + 3
[*]x^2 + y^2 = 117
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for x:
(y + 3)^2 + y^2 = 117
Evaluate and simplify:
y^2 + 3y + 3y + 9 + y^2 = 117
Combine like terms:
2y^2 + 6y + 9 = 117
Subtract 117 from each side:
2y^2 + 6y + 9 - 117 = 117 - 117
2y^2 + 6y - 108 = 0
This is a quadratic equation:
Solve the quadratic equation 2y2+6y-108 = 0
With the standard form of ax2 + bx + c, we have our a, b, and c values:
a = 2, b = 6, c = -108
Solve the quadratic equation 2y^2 + 6y - 108 = 0
The quadratic formula is denoted below:
y = -b ± sqrt(b^2 - 4ac)/2a
[U]Step 1 - calculate negative b:[/U]
-b = -(6)
-b = -6
[U]Step 2 - calculate the discriminant ?:[/U]
? = b2 - 4ac:
? = 62 - 4 x 2 x -108
? = 36 - -864
? = 900 <--- Discriminant
Since ? is greater than zero, we can expect two real and unequal roots.
[U]Step 3 - take the square root of the discriminant ?:[/U]
?? = ?(900)
?? = 30
[U]Step 4 - find numerator 1 which is -b + the square root of the Discriminant:[/U]
Numerator 1 = -b + ??
Numerator 1 = -6 + 30
Numerator 1 = 24
[U]Step 5 - find numerator 2 which is -b - the square root of the Discriminant:[/U]
Numerator 2 = -b - ??
Numerator 2 = -6 - 30
Numerator 2 = -36
[U]Step 6 - calculate your denominator which is 2a:[/U]
Denominator = 2 * a
Denominator = 2 * 2
Denominator = 4
[U]Step 7 - you have everything you need to solve. Find solutions:[/U]
Solution 1 = Numerator 1/Denominator
Solution 1 = 24/4
Solution 1 = 6
Solution 2 = Numerator 2/Denominator
Solution 2 = -36/4
Solution 2 = -9
[U]As a solution set, our answers would be:[/U]
(Solution 1, Solution 2) = (6, -9)
Since one of the solutions is not positive and the problem asks for 2 positive number, this problem has no solution

Emily is three years older than twice her sister Mary’s age. The sum of their ages is less than 30.

Emily is three years older than twice her sister Mary’s age. The sum of their ages is less than 30. What is the greatest age Mary could be?
Let e = Emily's age and m = Mary's age.
We have the equation e = 2m + 3 and the inequality e + m < 30
Substitute the equation for e into the inequality:
2m + 3 + m < 30
Add the m terms
3m + 3 < 30
Subtract 3 from each side of the inequality
3m < 27
Divide each side of the inequality by 3 to isolate m
m < 9
Therefore, the [B]greatest age[/B] Mary could be is 8, since less than 9 [U]does not include[/U] 9.

Given that E[Y]=2 and Var [Y] =3, find E[(2Y + 1)^2]

Given that E[Y]=2 and Var [Y] =3, find E[(2Y + 1)^2]
Multiply through
E[(2Y + 1)^2] = E[4y^2 + 4y + 1]
We can take the expected value of each term
E[4y^2] + E[4y] + E[1]
For the first term, we have:
4E[Y^2]
We define the Var[Y] = E[Y^2] - (E[Y])^2
Rearrange this term, we have E[Y^2] = Var[Y] + (E[Y])^2
E[Y^2] = 3+ 2^2
E[Y^2] = 3+ 4
E[Y^2] = 7
So our first term is 4(7) = 28
For the second term using expected value rules of separating out a constant, we have
4E[Y] = 4(2) = 8
For the third term, we have:
E[1] = 1
Adding up our three terms, we have:
E[4y^2] + E[4y] + E[1] = 28 + 8 + 1
E[4y^2] + E[4y] + E[1] = [B]37[/B]

Given w(x) = 3x + 8, find w(2b + 6).

Given w(x) = 3x + 8, find w(2b + 6).
Plug the value of 2b + 6 in for x
w(2b + 6) = 3(2b + 6) + 8
Multiply through:
w(2b + 6) = 6b + 18 + 8
Group like terms:
w(2b + 6) = [B]6b + 26[/B]

Grandmother, mother and daughter are celebrating 150 years of life. The Mother is 25 years older than her daughter, but 31 years younger than her mother (the grandmother). How old are the three
Let grandmother's age be g. Let mother's age be m. Let daughter's age be d. We're given 3 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]m = d + 25
[*]m = g - 31

a - b = 2x - 2y - 1
Factor our a 2 from the first two terms:
a - b = 2(x - y) - 1
Since x - y is an integer, 2(x- y) is always even. Subtracting 1 makes this an odd number.

In a class there are 5 more boys than girls. There are 13 students in all. How many boys are there in the class?
We start by declaring variables for boys and girls:
[LIST]
[*]Let b be the number of boys
[*]Let g be the number of girls
[/LIST]
We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]b = g + 5
[*]b + g = 13
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) for b into equation (2):
g + 5 + g = 13
Grouping like terms, we get:
2g + 5 = 13
Subtract 5 from each side:
2g + 5 - 5 = 13 - 5
Cancel the 5's on the left side and we get:
2g = 8
Divide each side of the equation by 2 to isolate g:
2g/2 = 8/2
Cancel the 2's on the left side and we get:
g = 4
Substitute g = 4 into equation (1) to solve for b:
b = 4 + 5
b = [B]9[/B]

Jonathan earns a base salary of $1500 plus 10% of his sales each month. Raymond earns $1200 plus 15% of his sales each month. How much will Jonathan and Raymond have to sell in order to earn the same amount each month?
[U]Step 1: Set up Jonathan's sales equation S(m) where m is the amount of sales made each month:[/U]
S(m) = Commission percentage * m + Base Salary
10% written as a decimal is 0.1. We want decimals to solve equations easier.
S(m) = 0.1m + 1500
[U]Step 2: Set up Raymond's sales equation S(m) where m is the amount of sales made each month:[/U]
S(m) = Commission percentage * m + Base Salary
15% written as a decimal is 0.15. We want decimals to solve equations easier.
S(m) = 0.15m + 1200
[U]The question asks what is m when both S(m)'s equal each other[/U]:
The phrase [I]earn the same amount [/I]means we set Jonathan's and Raymond's sales equations equal to each other
0.1m + 1500 = 0.15m + 1200
We want to isolate m terms on one side of the equation.
Subtract 1200 from each side:
0.1m + 1500 - 1200 = 0.15m + 1200 - 1200
Cancel the 1200's on the right side and we get:
0.1m - 300 = 0.15m
Next, we subtract 0.1m from each side of the equation to isolate m
0.1m - 0.1m + 300 = 0.15m - 0.1m
Cancel the 0.1m terms on the left side and we get:
300 = 0.05m
Flip the statement since it's an equal sign to get the variable on the left side:
0.05m = 300
To solve for m, we divide each side of the equation by 0.05:
0.05m/0.05 = 300/0.05
Cancelling the 0.05 on the left side, we get:
m = [B]6000[/B]

We are given C(m) = 18.20
18.20 = 9 + 0.1(m - 600)
18.20 = 9 + 0.1m - 60
Combine like terms:

Kevin is 4 times old as Daniel and is also 6 years older than Daniel

Kevin is 4 times old as Daniel and is also 6 years older than Daniel.
Let k be Kevin's age and d be Daniel's age. We have 2 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]k = 4d
[*]k = d + 6
[/LIST]
Plug (1) into (2):
4d = d + 6
Subtract d from each side:
4d - d = d - d + 6
Cancel the d terms on the right side and simplify:
3d = 6
Divide each side by 3:
3d/3 = 6/3
Cancel the 3 on the left side:
d = 2
Plug this back into equation (1):
k = 4(2)
k = 8
So Daniel is 2 years old and Kevin is 8 years old

larger of 2 numbers is 12 more than the smaller number. if the sum of the 2 numbers is 74 find the 2 numbers
Declare Variables for each number:
[LIST]
[*]Let l be the larger number
[*]Let s be the smaller number
[/LIST]
We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]l = s + 12
[*]l + s = 74
[/LIST]
Equation (1) already has l solved for. Substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for l:
s + 12 + s = 74
Solve for [I]s[/I] in the equation s + 12 + s = 74
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group the s terms on the left hand side:[/B][/SIZE]
(1 + 1)s = 2s
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Form modified equation[/B][/SIZE]
2s + 12 = + 74
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 12 and 74. To do that, we subtract 12 from both sides
2s + 12 - 12 = 74 - 12
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 12 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
2s = 62
[SIZE=5][B]Step 5: Divide each side of the equation by 2[/B][/SIZE]
2s/2 = 62/2
s = [B]31[/B]
To solve for l, we substitute in s = 31 into equation (1):
l = 31 + 12
l = [B]43[/B]

larger of 2 numbers is 4 more than the smaller. the sum of the 2 is 40. what is the larger number?
Declare variables for the 2 numbers:
[LIST]
[*]Let l be the larger number
[*]Let s be the smaller number
[/LIST]
We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]l = s + 4
[*]l + s = 40
[/LIST]
To get this problem in terms of the larger number l, we rearrange equation (1) in terms of l.
Subtract 4 from each side in equation (1)
l - 4 = s + 4 - 4
Cancel the 4's and we get:
s = l - 4
Our given equations are now:
[LIST=1]
[*]s = l - 4
[*]l + s = 40
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for s:
l + l - 4 = 40
Grouping like terms for l, we get:
2l - 4 = 40
Add 4 to each side:
2l - 4 + 4 = 40 + 4
Cancelling the 4's on the left side, we get
2l = 44
Divide each side of the equation by 2 to isolate l:
2l/2 = 44/2
Cancel the 2's on the left side and we get:
l = [B]22[/B]

Larry Mitchell invested part of his $31,000 advance at 6% annual simple interest and the rest at 7%

Larry Mitchell invested part of his $31,000 advance at 6% annual simple interest and the rest at 7% annual simple interest. If the total yearly interest from both accounts was $2,090, find the amount invested at each rate.
Let x be the amount invested at 6%. Then 31000 - x is invested at 7%.
We have the following equation:
0.06x + (31000 - x)0.07 = 2090
Simplify:
0.06x + 2170 - 0.07x = 2090
Combine like Terms
-0.01x + 2170 = 2090
Subtract 2170 from each side
-0.01x = -80
Divide each side by -0.01
x = [B]8000 [/B]at 6%
Which means at 7%, we have:
31000 - 8000 = [B]23,000[/B]

Let Laura weigh l and her dog weigh d. WE have:
[LIST=1]
[*]l = d + 45
[*]d + l = 85
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into Equation (2) for l:
d + d + 45 = 85
Solve for [I]d[/I] in the equation d + d + 45 = 85
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group the d terms on the left hand side:[/B][/SIZE]
(1 + 1)d = 2d
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Form modified equation[/B][/SIZE]
2d + 45 = + 85
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 45 and 85. To do that, we subtract 45 from both sides
2d + 45 - 45 = 85 - 45
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 45 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
2d = 40
[SIZE=5][B]Step 5: Divide each side of the equation by 2[/B][/SIZE]
2d/2 = 40/2
d = 20
From equation (1), we substitute d = 20:
l = d + 45
l = 20 + 45
l = [B]65 pounds

Michelle and Julie sold 65 cupcakes. If Julie sold 9 more cupcakes than Michelle, how many cupcakes

Michelle and Julie sold 65 cupcakes. If Julie sold 9 more cupcakes than Michelle, how many cupcakes did each of them sell?
Let m = Michelle's cupcakes and j = Julie's cupcakes.
We have two equations:
m + j = 65
j = m + 9
Substituting, we get:
m + (m + 9) = 65
Combine like terms, we get:
2m + 9 = 65
Subtract 9 from each side:
2m = 56
Divide each side by 2 to isolate m
m = 28
If m = 28, then j = 28 + 9 = 37
So (m, j) = (28, 37)

Prove sqrt(2) is irrational

Use proof by contradiction. Assume sqrt(2) is rational.
This means that sqrt(2) = p/q for some integers p and q, with q <>0.
We assume p and q are in lowest terms.
Square both side and we get:
2 = p^2/q^2
p^2 = 2q^2
This means p^2 must be an even number which means p is also even since the square of an odd number is odd.
So we have p = 2k for some integer k. From this, it follows that:
2q^2 = p^2 = (2k)^2 = 4k^2
2q^2 = 4k^2
q^2 = 2k^2
q^2 is also even, therefore q must be even.
So both p and q are even.
This contradicts are assumption that p and q were in lowest terms.
So sqrt(2) [B]cannot be rational.

Prove that the difference between alternate consecutive squares as always even

Take an integer n. The next alternate consecutive integer is n + 2
Subtract the difference of the squares:
(n + 2)^2 - n^2
n^2 + 4n + 4 - n^2
n^2 terms cancel, we get:
4n + 4
Factor out a 4:
4(n + 1)
If n is odd, n + 1 is even. 4 * even is always even
If n is even, n + 1 is odd. 4 * odd is always odd
Since both cases are even, we've proven our statement.

Prove that the difference of two consecutive cubes is never divisible by 3

Take two consecutive integers:
n, n + 1
The difference of their cubes is:
(n + 1)^3 - n^3

3n^2 + 3n + 1
Factor out a 3 from the first 2 terms:
3(n^2 + n) + 1
The first two terms are always divisible by 3 but then the + 1 makes this expression not divisible by 3:
3(n^2 + n) + 1 = 1 (mod 3)

Solve 11 - 1/2y = 3 + 6x for y

Solve 11 - 1/2y = 3 + 6x for y
Subtract 11 from each side so we can isolate the y term:
11 -11 - 1/2y = 3 + 6x - 11
Cancelling the 11's on the left side, we get:
-1/2y = 6x - 8 <-- Since 3 - 11 = -8
Multiply both sides of the equation by -2 to remove the -1/2 on the left side:
-2(-1/2)y = -2(6x - 8)
Simplifying, we get:
y = [B]-12x + 16

Solve for h. rs + h^2 = l
[U]Subtract rs from each side to isolate h:[/U]
rs - rs + h^2 = l - rs
[U]Cancel the rs terms on the left side, and we get:[/U]

[U]Take the square root of each side:[/U]
h = [B]sqrt(l - rs)[/B]

Solve mgh=1/2mv^2+1/2(2/5)mr^2(v^2/r^2) for v

Solve mgh=1/2mv^2+1/2(2/5)mr^2(v^2/r^2) for v
1/2(2/5) = 1/5 since the 2's cancel
r^2/r^2 = 1
So we simplify, and get:
mgh=1/2mv^2+1/5(mv^2) for v
Divide each side by m, so m's cancel in each term on the left and right side:
gh = 1/2v^2 + 1/5(v^2)
Combine like terms for v^2 on the right side:
1/2 + 1/5 = 7/10 from our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=1%2F2&frac2=1%2F5&pl=Add']fraction calculator[/URL]
So we have:
gh = 7v^2/10
Multiply each side by 10:
10gh = 7v^2
Now divide each side by 7
10gh/7 = v^2
Take the square root of each side:
[B]v = sqrt(10gh/7)[/B]

Solving word problems with the matrix method?

Hello everyone.
I am stuck on a work question that we are required to solve using the matrix (or Gauss-Jordan) method.
[CENTER]"A car rental company wants to buy 100 new cars. Compact cars cost $12,000 each,
intermediate size cars cost $18,000 each, full size cars cost $24,000 each, and the company
has a budget of $1,500,000. If they purchase twice as many compact cars as intermediate
sized cars, determine the number of cars of each type that they buy, assuming they
spend the entire budget."

Suppose Briley has 10 coins in quarters and dimes and has a total of 1.45. How many of each coin doe

Suppose Briley has 10 coins in quarters and dimes and has a total of 1.45. How many of each coin does she have?
Set up two equations where d is the number of dimes and q is the number of quarters:
(1) d + q = 10
(2) 0.1d + 0.25q = 1.45
Rearrange (1) into (3) to solve for d
(3) d = 10 - q
Now plug (3) into (2)
0.1(10 - q) + 0.25q = 1.45
Multiply through:
1 - 0.1q + 0.25q = 1.45
Combine q terms
0.15q + 1 = 1.45
Subtract 1 from each side
0.15q = 0.45
Divide each side by 0.15
[B]q = 3[/B]
Plug our q = 3 value into (3)
d = 10 - 3
[B]d = 7[/B]

a) Find S10 and S?
b) If the common difference in an arithmetic sequence is twice the first term, show that Sn/Sm = n^2/m^2
a) Sum of the geometric sequence is
a = 3 and r = 1/3
(a(1 - r)^n)/(1 - r)
(3(1 - 1/3)^9)/(1 - 1/3)
[B]S10 = 4.499771376[/B]
For infinity, as n goes to infinity, the numerator goes to 1
so we have [B]S? = 3(1)/2/3 = 4.5[/B]
b) Sum of an arithmetic sequence formula is below:
n(a1 + an)/2
an = a1 + (n - 1)2a1 since d = 2a1
n(a1 + a1 + (n - 1)2a1)/2
(2a1n + n^2 - 2a1n)/2
n^2/2
For Sm
m(a1 + am)/2
am = a1 + (m - 1)2a1 since d = 2a1
m(a1 + 1 + (m - 1)2a1)/2
(2a1m + m^2 - 2a1m)/2
m^2/2
Sn/Sm = n^2/m^2 (cancel the 2's)
S10/S1 = 10^2/1^2
We know S_{1} = 3
So we have 100(3)/1
[B]S10 = 300[/B]

Complete depreciation means the salvage value is 0.
So S(t) = 0. We need to find t to make S(t) = 0
-4,500t + 54,000 = 0
Subtract 54,000 from each side
-4,500t = -54,000
Divide each side by -4,500
[B]t = 12[/B]

The difference between 2 numbers is 108. 6 times the smaller is equal to 2 more than the larger. What are the numbers?
Let the smaller number be x. Let the larger number be y. We're given:
[LIST=1]
[*]y - x = 108
[*]6x = y + 2
[/LIST]
Rearrange (1) by adding x to each side:
[LIST=1]
[*]y = x + 108

Substitute this into (2):
6x = x + 108 + 2
Combine like terms
6x = x +110
Subtract x from each side:
5x = 110

Rearrange equation 1 by adding y to each side:
x - y + y = y + 12
Cancelling the y's on the left side, we get:
x = y + 12
Now substitute this into equation 2:
(y + 12 + y)/2 = 15
Cross multiply:
y + 12 + y = 30
Group like terms for y:
2y + 12 = 30

a. Express the new length and the new width in terms of x.
b. Express the new area of the rectangle in terms of x.
c. Find the value of x.
Calculate the current area. Using our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/rectangle.php?l=30&w=18&a=&p=&pl=Calculate+Rectangle']rectangle calculator with length = 30 and width = 18[/URL], we get:
A = 540
a) Decrease length by x and increase width by x, and we get:
[LIST]
[*]length = [B]30 - x[/B]
[*]width = [B]18 + x[/B]
[/LIST]
b) Our new area using the lw = A formula is:
(30 - x)(18 + x) = 540 + 35
Multiplying through and simplifying, we get:
540 - 18x + 30x - x^2 = 575
[B]-x^2 + 12x + 540 = 575[/B]
c) We have a quadratic equation. To solve this, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=-x%5E2%2B12x%2B540%3D575&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']we type it in our search engine, choose solve[/URL], and we get:
[B]x = 5 or x = 7[/B]
Trying x = 5, we get:
A = (30 - 5)(18 + 5)
A = 25 * 23
A = 575
Now let's try x = 7:
A = (30 - 7)(18 + 7)
A = 23 * 25
A = 575
They both check out.

The function f(x) = e^x(x - 3) has a critical point at x =

The function f(x) = e^x(x - 3) has a critical point at x =
The critical point is where the derivative equals 0.
We multiply through for f(x) to get:
f(x) = xe^x - 3e^x
Using the product rule on the first term f'g + fg', we get:
f'(x) = xe^x + e^x - 3e^x
f'(x) = xe^x -2e^x
f'(x) = e^x(x - 2)
We want f'(x) = 0
e^x(x - 2) = 0
When [B]x = 2[/B], then f'(x) = 0

P'(x) = -60x + 360
We find the maximum when we set the profit derivative equal to 0
-60x + 360 = 0
Subtract 360 from both sides:
-60x = -360
Divide each side by -60
[B]x = 6 <-- This is the ticket price to maximize profit[/B]
Substitute x = 6 into the profit equation:
P(6) = -30(6)^2 + 360(6) + 785
P(6) = -1080 + 2160 + 785

P = 2l + 2w
Since P = 120, we have:
(1) 2l + 2w = 120
We are also given:
(2) l = 3w - 6
Substitute equation (2) into equation (1)
2(3w - 6) + 2w = 120
Multiply through:
6w - 12 + 2w = 120
Combine like terms:
8w - 12 = 120
Add 12 to each side:
8w = 132
Divide each side by 8 to isolate w:
w =16.5
Now substitute w into equation (2)
l = 3(16.5) - 6
l = 49.5 - 6
l = 43.5
So (l, w) = (43.5, 16.5)

The school yearbook costs $15 per book to produce with an overhead of $5500. The yearbook sells for

The school yearbook costs $15 per book to produce with an overhead of $5500. The yearbook sells for $40. Write a cost and revenue function and determine the break-even point.
[U]Calculate cost function C(b) with b as the number of books:[/U]
C(b) = Cost per book * b + Overhead
[B]C(b) = 15b + 5500[/B]
[U]Calculate Revenue Function R(b) with b as the number of books:[/U]
R(b) = Sales Price per book * b
[B]R(b) = 40b[/B]
[U]Calculate break even function E(b):[/U]
Break-even Point = Revenue - Cost
Break-even Point = R(b) - C(b)
Break-even Point = 40b - 15b - 5500
Break-even Point = 25b - 5500
[U]Calculate break even point:[/U]
Break-even point is where E(b) = 0. So we set 25b - 5500 equal to 0
25b - 5500 = 0

Let a be Suresh's age, h be Hakima's age, and c be Saad's age. We're given:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + h + c = 48
[*]a = 0.5h
[*]a = c + 4
[/LIST]
To isolate equations in terms of Suresh's age (a), let's do the following:
[LIST]
[*]Rewriting (3) by subtracting 4 from each side, we get c = a - 4
[*]Rewriting (2) by multiply each side by 2, we have h = 2a
[/LIST]
We have a new system of equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + h + c = 48
[*]h = 2a
[*]c = a - 4
[/LIST]
Plug (2) and (3) into (1)
a + (2a) + (a - 4) = 48
Group like terms:
(1 + 2 + 1)a - 4 = 48
4a - 4 = 48
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=4a-4%3D48&pl=Solve']Typing this equation into our search engine[/URL], we get:
[B]a = 13 [/B]<-- Suresh's age
This means that Hakima's age, from modified equation (2) above is:
h = 2(13)
[B]h = 26[/B] <-- Hakima's age
This means that Saad's age, from modified equation (3) above is:
c = 13 - 4
[B]c = 9[/B] <-- Saad's age

There are 13 animals in the barn. some are chickens and some are pigs. there are 40 legs in all. How many of each animal are there?
Chickens have 2 legs, pigs have 4 legs. Let c be the number of chickens and p be the number of pigs. Set up our givens:
(1) c + p = 13
(2) 2c + 4p = 40
[U]Rearrange (1) to solve for c by subtracting p from both sides:[/U]
(3) c = 13 - p
[U]Substitute (3) into (2)[/U]
2(13 - p) + 4p = 40
26 - 2p + 4p = 40
[U]Combine p terms[/U]
2p + 26 = 40
[U]Subtract 26 from each side:[/U]
2p = 14
[U]Divide each side by 2[/U]
[B]p = 7[/B]
[U]Substitute p = 7 into (3)[/U]
c = 13 - 7
[B]c = 6[/B]

There are 2 consecutive integers. Twice the first increased by the second yields 16. What are the numbers?
Let x be the first integer. y = x + 1 is the next integer. We have the following givens:
[LIST=1]
[*]2x + y = 16
[*]y = x + 1
[/LIST]
Substitute (2) into (1)
2x + (x + 1) = 16
Combine x terms
3x + 1 = 16
Subtract 1 from each side
3x = 15
Divide each side by 3
[B]x = 5[/B]
So the other integer is 5 + 1 = [B]6[/B]

There are 33 students in an Algebra I class. There are 7 fewer girls than boys. How many girls are in the class?
Let b be the number of boys and g be the number of girls. We are given 2 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]g = b - 7
[*]b + g = 33
[/LIST]
Substitute (1) into (2):
b + (b - 7) = 33
Combine like terms:
2b - 7 = 33
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=2b-7%3D33&pl=Solve']Typing this equation into our search engine[/URL], we get b = 20.
Since the problem asks for how many girls (g) we have, we substitute b = 20 into Equation (1):
g = 20 - 7
[B]g = 13[/B]

There are 50 pairs of pants. One-half of the pants are black. One-fifth of the pants are tan. How many pairs of pants are not black or tan.
First, determine what fraction of pants are black and tan:
1/2 + 1/5
Using our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=1%2F2&frac2=1%2F5&pl=Add']fraction addition calculator[/URL], we get 7/10.
So the rest of the pants are 1 - 7/10.
1 can be written as 10/10.
So we have 10/10 - 7/10 = 3/10
3/10 * 50 = 150/10 = [B]15[/B]

There are two numbers. The sum of 4 times the first number and 3 times the second number is 24. The difference between 2 times the first number and 3 times the second number is 24. Find the two numbers.
Let the first number be x and the second number be y. We have 2 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]4x + 3y = 24
[*]2x - 3y = 24
[/LIST]
Without doing anything else, we can add the 2 equations together to eliminate the y term:
(4x + 2x) + (3y - 3y) = (24 + 24)
6x = 48
Divide each side by 6:
[B]x = 8
[/B]
Substitute this into equation (1)
4(8) + 3y = 24
32 + 3y = 24
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=32%2B3y%3D24&pl=Solve']Type 32 + 3y = 24 into our search engine[/URL] and we get [B]y = 2.6667[/B].

There is a bag filled with 5 blue, 6 red and 2 green marbles. A marble is taken at random from the bag, the colour is noted and then it is replaced. Another marble is taken at random. What is the probability of getting exactly 1 blue?
Find the total number of marbles in the bag:
Total marbles = 5 blue + 6 red + 2 green
Total marbles = 13
The problem asks for exactly one blue in 2 draws [I]with replacement[/I]. Which means you could draw as follows:
Blue, Not Blue
Not Blue, Blue
The probability of drawing a blue is 5/13, since we replace the marbles in the bag each time.
The probability of not drawing a blue is (6 + 2)/13 = 8/13
And since each of the 2 draws are independent of each other, we multiply the probability of each draw:
Blue, Not Blue = 5/13 * 8/13 =40/169
Not Blue, Blue = 8/13 * 5/13 = 40/169
We add both probabilities since they both count under our scenario:
40/169 + 40/169 = 80/169
Checking our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=80%2F169&frac2=3%2F8&pl=Simplify']fraction simplification calculator[/URL], we see you cannot simplify this fraction anymore.

Two numbers have a sum of 20. Determine the lowest possible sum of their squares.

Two numbers have a sum of 20. Determine the lowest possible sum of their squares.
If sum of two numbers is 20, let one number be x. Then the other number would be 20 - x.
The sum of their squares is:
x^2+(20 - x)^2
Expand this and we get:
x^2 + 400 - 40x + x^2
Combine like terms:
2x^2 - 40x + 400
Rewrite this:
2(x^2 - 20x + 100 - 100) + 400
2(x - 10)^2 - 200 + 400
2(x?10)^2 + 200
The sum of squares of two numbers is sum of two positive numbers, one of which is a constant of 200.
The other number, 2(x - 10)^2, can change according to the value of x. The least value could be 0, when x=10
Therefore, the minimum value of sum of squares of two numbers is 0 + 200 = 200 when x = 10.
If x = 10, then the other number is 20 - 10 = 10.

[LIST=1]
[*](x + y)/2 = 2100 (Average)
[*]y = x + 425
[/LIST]
Rearrange equation (1) by cross multiplying

[*]x + y = 4200
[*]y = x + 425
[/LIST]
Substituting equation (2) into equation (1) for y, we get:
x + (x + 425) = 4200
Combining like terms, we get:
2x + 425 = 4200
Using our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=2x%2B425%3D4200&pl=Solve']equation solver[/URL], we get:

Two numbers that total 44 and have a difference of 6

Two numbers that total 44 and have a difference of 6.
Let the two numbers be x and y. We're given the following equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x + y = 44 <-- Total means a sum
[*]x - y = 6
[/LIST]
Add the two equations together:
(x + x) + (y - y) = 44 + 6
Cancelling the y terms, we have:
2x = 50
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=2x%3D50&pl=Solve']Typing this equation into the search engine[/URL], we get:

Let the first number be x. Let the second number be y. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x + y = 12
[*]x - y = 20
[/LIST]
Since we have y coefficients of (-1 and 1) that cancel, we add the two equations together:
(x + x) + (y - y) = 12 + 20
The y terms cancel, so we have:
2x = 32

Van needs to enter a formula into a spreadsheet to show the outputs of an arithmetic sequence that s

Van needs to enter a formula into a spreadsheet to show the outputs of an arithmetic sequence that starts with 13 and continues to add seven to each output. For now, van needs to know what the 15th output will be. Complete the steps needed to determine the 15th term in sequence.
Given a first term a1 of 13 and a change amount of 7, expand the series
The explicit formula for an [I]arithmetic series[/I] is an = a1 + (n - 1)d
d represents the common difference between each term, an - an - 1
Looking at all the terms, we see the common difference is 7, and we have a1 = 13
Therefore, our explicit formula is an = 13 + 7(n - 1)
If n = 15, then we plug it into our explicit formula above:
an = 13 + 7(n - 1)
a(15) = 15 + 7(15 - 1)
a(15) = 15 + 7 * 14
a(15) = 15 + 98
a(15) = [B]113[/B]

x/y = n - 9
Because we have a fraction on the left side, we can cross multiply the denominator y by n - 9
[B]x =[/B] [B]y(n - 9)[/B]

x/y + 9 = n for y

x/y + 9 = n for y
First, subtract 9 from each side to isolate the y term:
x/y + 9 - 9 = n - 9
Cancel the 9's on the left side, and we get:
x/y = n - 9
Cross multiply:
x = y(n - 9)
Divide each side by (n - 9):
x/(n - 9) = y(n - 9)/(n - 9)
Cancel the (n - 9) on the right side, and we get:
y = [B]x/(n - 9)[/B]

You and your friend are playing a number-guessing game. You ask your friend to think of a positive n

You and your friend are playing a number-guessing game. You ask your friend to think of a positive number, square the number, multiply the result by 2, and then add three. If your friend's final answer is 53, what was the original number chosen?
Let n be our original number.
Square the number means we raise n to the power of 2:
n^2
Multiply the result by 2:
2n^2
And then add three:
2n^2 + 3
If the friend's final answer is 53, this means we set 2n^2 + 3 equal to 53:
2n^2 + 3 = 53
To solve for n, we subtract 3 from each side, to isolate the n term:
2n^2 + 3 - 3 = 53 - 3
Cancel the 3's on the left side, and we get:
2n^2 = 50
Divide each side of the equation by 2:
2n^2/2 = 50/2
Cancel the 2's, we get:
n^2 = 25
Take the square root of 25
n = +-sqrt(25)
n = +-5
We are told the number is positive, so we discard the negative square root and get:
n = [B]5[/B]

zy-dm=ky/t for y

zy-dm=ky/t for y
Isolate terms with y to solve this literal equation.
Subtract zy from each side:
zy - dm - zy = ky/t - zy
Cancel the zy terms on the left side, we get:
-dm = ky/t - zy
Factor out y:
y(k/t - z) = -dm
Divide each side by (k/t - z)
y = -dm/(k/t - z)
(k/t - z) can be rewritten as (k - tz)/t
We multiply -dm by the reciprocal of this quotient to get our simplified literal equation:
y = [B]-dmt/(k - tz)[/B]
