Hi, does anyone know any websites where I can go to find examples on how to solve absolute value quadratic inequalites such as |x^2 - 1| is less than or equal to 2? Purple math has a section dealing with linear absolute value inequalites but I need to know the specific steps on how to solve quadrati...
Complex Fraction: a^2 / b^2 - 1 denominator 1/a + 1/b = a^2 - b^2 / b^2 denominator b+a / ab = a^2 - b^2 / b^2 * ab / b+a = a(a-b) / b. But my textbook has the answer a(a-b). So what happened to the denominator b?
Here is the Complex Fraction: Numerator= (a^2 / b^2) - 1 Denominator = (1/a + b/a) So, finding the LCD I have Numerator= (a^2 - b^2 / b^2) Denominator = (b + a / ab) Next I multiply by the reciprocal (a^2 - b^2 / b^2) * (ab / b + a) [(a + b)(a - b) / b^2)] * (ab / b + a) Simplifying, I am left with ...
Yes you have written the problem correctly. Except the denomitor of the complex fraction is 1 over a + 1 over b (1/a + 1/b). So the LCD is ab. So the denominator of the complex fraction is now b + a over ab (b + a / ab).
The equation is x(raised to the one-half) - 6x(raised to the negative one-half) - 5 = 0 x^(1/2) - 6x^(-1/2) - 5 = 0 At this point what I tried to do was change it to a square root. So I get this sqr of x + sqr of 6x - 5 = 0 At this point I am confused and stuck. Please help. By the way the answer is...
I have 3 raised to the (x^2 - 1) / 9 raised to (x + 2) = one-nineth. So first I set up common bases. I have 3 raised to the (x^2 - 1) divided by 3 raised to the (2x + 4) = one-nineth. Now I am stuck. I have the same bases but am I suppose subtract the exponents? Can someone please help me get over t...
I'm sorry, I still cannot sovle this equation. I followed your advice and converted the right side to equal bases. This is what I now have, 3 raised to (x^2 - 1) = 3^0 3 raised to (2x + 4) = 3^2 So I have x^2 - 1 = 0 and 2x + 4 = 2. So I solved both equations. x= 1 and x = -1 My textbook has the ans...
I have the sequence 2,8,26,80,242 So b sub n = 6,18,54,162 b sub 1 = 6 r = 3 using the geometric formula I have 6 times 3^(n-1). Now I am stuck? What are the next steps? Please help!
