# Solve x^2 - x = 2 using the quadratic formula. Show your work.

Answer: The quadratic formula is the result of completing the square for ax^2+bx+c=0 when a,b, and c are unknown values.  This result is:

x=(-b±√(b^2-4ac))/(2a), we have x^2-x-2=0 so

x=(1±√(1+8))/2

x=(1±√9)/2

x=(1±3)/2

x=-1 and 2

The quantitive relation between two amounts showing the number of times ones value contained or is contained within the other.

Step-by-step explanation:

IT SHOWS THE RELATIVE SIZE BETWEEN 2 OR MORE NUMBERS.

Least to greatest.
15 3/4, 16.3, 15.4, 16 1/4

The answer is 15.4, 15 3/4, 16 1/4, 16.3.
You can convert all numbers to decimal form to make it easier on yourself. For example, 15 3/4 = 15.75, which is greater than 15.4.

Fred and Victoria provide the following proofs for vertical angles to be equal: A line PQ is shown cut by a transversal t. 1, 2, 3, 4 are marked clockwise as the four angles formed by the transversal on the segment PQ

Fred's proof: angle 2 + angle 3 = 180° (t is a straight line)
angle 1 + angle 2 = 180° (PQ is a straight line)
Therefore, angle 1 + angle 2 = angle 2 + angle 3 (Transitive Property of Equality)
Hence, angle 1 = angle 3 (Subtraction Property of Equality)

Victoria's proof: angle 1 + angle 4 = 180° (t is a straight line)
angle 1 + angle 2 =180° (PQ is a straight line)
Therefore, angle 1 + angle 2 = angle 1 + angle 4 (Transitive Property of Equality)
Hence, angle 2 = angle 4 (Subtraction Property of Equality)

Which statement is correct?

The Darnells are having a swimming pool installed. The pool has a radius of 14 feet and a height of 4 feet. What is the volume of the pool?

So a circular pool will be in the shape of a cylinder. and the formula for finding the area of a cylinder is  . r=radius, h=height. If we put the numbers into the equation it is  .14 squared is 196 and 4*14= 56. So our equation is now . 2*pi=6.28318530718 but let's round that to 6.283. So now our equation is much simpler 6.283(196)+6.283(56). Just multiply them. 1231.504+351.858= 1583.362 is your final answer.

What is the solution to the equation? 2q + 18 = –5q – 3

2q+ 18= -5q -3
⇒ 2q+ 5q= -3 -18
⇒ 7q= -21
⇒ q= -21/7
⇒ q= -3

Solve the system by either substitution or elimination
X-3y-3z=9
5x-3y+3z=-3
-4x+2y-4z=4

X - 3y - 3z = 9
5x - 3y + 3z = -3
6x - 6y = 6

x - 3y - 3z = 9.....multiply by -4
-4x + 2y - 4z = 4..multiply by 3
-------------------
-4x + 12y + 12z = -36 (result of multiplying by -4)
-12x + 6y - 12z = 12 (result of multiplying by 3)
-16x + 18y = - 24

6x - 6y = 6.....multiply by 3
-16x + 18y = -24
---------------------
18x - 18y = 18 (result of multiplying by 3)
-16x + 18y = -24
2x = - 6
x = -6/2
x = -3

6x - 6y = 6
6(-3) - 6y = 6
-18 - 6y = 6
-6y = 6 + 18
-6y = 24
y = -24/6
y = -4

x - 3y - 3z = 9
-3 - 3(-4) - 3z = 9
-3 + 12 - 3z = 9
9 - 3z = 9
-3z = 9 - 9
-3z = 0
z = 0

so ur solution is (-3,-4,0)

You trade 24 football card for 15 baseball card & I trade 20 football card for 32 baseball cards. Is this fair?

No this is not fair because it is not equal you have to make a fair and equal trade like the indians made in the past.

the standard deviation of duration times in seconds of the old faithful geyser is less than 40 sec. identify the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis in symbolic form

this is a left tailed test

Null hypothesis,   σ = 40 seconds

Alternate hypothesis, σ < 40 seconds.

Step-by-step explanation:

i) the standard deviation of duration times in seconds of the old faithful geyser is less than 40 sec. identify the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis in symbolic form

ii) this is a left tailed test

Null hypothesis,   σ = 40 seconds

Alternate hypothesis, σ < 40 seconds.
