2. A shed will have square ends and a sloped roof. Did they maybe have a picture with this? Because if two sides are square, then they can't have a sloped roof over them. The sides would have to have triangles of some kind above any squares. When you write back, please show what you did so far, lik...

b-thanks and the 5 should be .5 So you meant this: \mbox{Solve }\, 4e^{-0.2x}\, +\, 3e^{-0.3x}\, =\, 0.5 Try using the steps, etc, explained in your other thread . The equations are pretty much the same so the methods will be pretty much the same too. If you get stuck, please write back showing wha...

I meant b So you meant this: \mbox{Solve }\, 4e^{2x}\, +\, 5e^{3x}\, =\, 15\, \mbox{ for the value of }\, x. and in order to solve say e^(2x) = Y I would take log of both sides so- Taking logs of both sides would give you this: \ln\left(\,4e^{2x}\, +\, 5e^{3x}\,\right) =\, \ln(15) Y...

Use the next step that I gave you. The numerator is t^5 dt = (t^2 t^2 t) dt = (t^2)^2 (t dt) = ... and so forth.

For homework, I have been given four points and I want to figure out the equation for them. The points are: (1,4) (2,8) (3,16) (4,32) The point is that the equation doesn't match all of the given points. What is your equation? How did you get it? Please reply as soon as possible by this evening. Li...

use a substitution u=t^2 to solve the integration t^5/sqrt(3-t^4)

They gave you u = t^2, so you know du = 2t dt and u^2 = t^4. Plugging in with this gives t^5 dt = u^2 du, etc. Where are you stuck? Please show all of your work so far. Thanks.

For each of the following complex polynomials, one of its zeroes is given. Use this zero to help write the polynomial in completely factored form. a. C(z) = z^3+(1-4i)z^2+(-6-4i)z+24i ; z=4i answer - C(z) = (z-4i)(z+3)(z-2) Gotta love having the answer, but no clue how to solve. They give you the o...

Doesn't "inverse" only apply to square (n=m) matrices?

Rewrite the given logarithm so that all products and exponents are eliminated. ln(4x^2) Here's the answer: ln 4+2 ln x I don't have a very good grasp on the logarithm properties, could someone explain how this answer was derived? They explain it all here . In this example, 1st you'd split the multi...
