Intermediate algebra was the correct spot right? If that's the class you're in, then yes. I don't understand how (5y^3/4)(2y^1/3) equals 10y^13/10 I have the answer but I don't understand how its reached. well at least not that 13/10 part The way you've posted means this: \left(\dfrac{5y^3}{4}\righ...

I just need to ensure I have the equation correct. A, B, and C build houses. Each house can be build in the following ways: i) A and B work together for 6 hours, and C works for 4 hours ii) A and B work together for 2 hours, and C works for 8 hours iii) A works alone for 3 hours, B works alone for ...

I am very confused on how to begin this problem. The image is blurry. I think it says this: Given: . . . V\, =\, \left\{\, [x,\, y]'\, \in\, \mathbb{R}^2\, :\, x\, \geq\, 0\, \mbox{ and }\, y\, \geq\, 0\, \right\} Present at least three different elements of the set V . After adding and scalar-mult...

there are arrows connecting the rows of numbers together. what's that all about? The arrows (which we can't see) are probably what they show here . Please help me. I have no idea how to solve this problem. How do I even start? Solve by Gaussian Elimination: x+y+z=5 2x+3y+5z=8 4x+5z+2 They were supp...

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) one is rando...

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 understand I have to multiply both side...
