### Re: Lone chooser problem

Al, Betty, and Carl divide a pizza, which they agree is worth \$12. They get a half-cheese and half-mushroom pizza. They will use the Lone Chooser Method and Betty becomes the chooser leaving Al and Carl as the dividers. I'll be using the "Lone Chooser Method" they show in this PDF : i) on...

### Re: Need help on solving Linear Algebra And Its Application Problem Set 1.2 Problem 2

"Sketch these three lines and decide if the equations are solvable: x\,+\,2y\,=\,2 x\, -\, y\,=\,2 y\,=\,1 What happens if all right-hand sides are zero? Is there any nonzero choice of right-hand sides that allows the three lines to intersect at the same point?" I am having a hard time so...

### Re: inverse proportion

Please help! I am having a trouble understanding what steps to take to get the answer. They show the steps here . Suppose that y is inversely proportional to x and that y-7/8 when x=16. Is the "y-7/8" supposed to be "y = 7/8", "y = -7/8", or something else? I understan...

### Re: Horizontal Asymptotes

I read the explanation on horizontal asymptotic but was wondering if there was a better way of finding out the asymptotic without observing a graph when the power of the numerator is smaller than the denominator. You mean here ? They just used the graph to explain the rule: If the power is smaller ...

### Re: Solve equation for a roof loading: =[2 x (3/2)Cos(45) x 1] x 2.25

So if RL is "Roof Load", W is "width of the bay window's opening in the wall", D is "depth of the bay window, or how far the window sticks out past the rest of the wall", and P is "the pitch angle of the roof, covering the two-floor building, where the bay window i...

5/8 + 2/7

You can learn how to add fractions here and here. Before you try the problem, do at least 2 or 3 lessons from the links. Then do the common denominator (or LCM) of 8 and 7 (its 56) to get 35/56 and 16/56. Then add, etc.
