# What is the quotient of -8x^6 over 4x^-3 a) x^9 over 32 b) 4x^9 c) -12 over x^2 d) -2x^9

QUESTION POSTED AT 14/01/2020 - 03:06 PM

(-8x^6) / (4x^3) can be broken down as (-8/4) * (x^6/x^-3)
you should know that -8/4 is -2
the second part is dividing variables at different powers which is kinda like subtracting powers

think of it as x ^ (6-(-3))
you get x^9
-2 * x ^9
= -2x^9

### A basket contains 6 pieces of paper numbered from 1 to 6. A hat contains the letters A, B, and C. If a blindfolded person picks a number and a letter, what is the probability that the number is even and the letter is A?

The two events are independent, so the probability of both happening is the product of the two.

Probability of picking an even number is 3/6=1/2
Probability of picking the letter A is 1/3 = 1/3

Product of probability of two independent events = (1/2)(1./3)=1/6.

### The tables represent two linear functions in a system table one x -6, -3, 0, 3 y= -22, -10, 2, 14 table 2 x = -6, -3, 0, 3 y= -30, -21, -12, -3 what is the solution to this system? a) [-13/3 , -25] b) [-14/3, -54] c) (-13, 50) d) (-14, 54)

WORKINGS
According to Table 1: y = 4x + 2 … (Equation I)
According to Table 2: y = 3x – 12 … (Equation II)
Substitute the value of y in equation I (4x + 2) for y in Equation II to solve for x
y = 3x – 12
4x + 2 = 3x – 12
4x – 3x = -12 – 2
x = -14
Substitute -14 for x in Equation I to solve for y
y = 4x + 2
y = 4(-14) + 2
y = -56 + 2
y = -54
Therefore, x= -14; y = -54

### Which statement describes the graph of f(x) = 4x2 + 20x + 25? A.The graph does not intersect the x-axis B.The graph touches the x-axis at (–2.5, 0). C.The graph intersects the x-axis at (–0.4, 0) and (0.4, 0). D.The graph intersects the x-axis at (2, 0) and (5, 0).

To determine the nature of the graph and on what points will it intersect the x - axis, determine the roots of the graph first. One way to find the roots is to use the quadratic formula, x = (-b +/- sqrt(b^2 - 4ac))/ 2a. Using this formula we get, x = -2.5. Thus, the answer is letter B.

As given Point A is the center of the circle.

We will answer this question by considering all the options.

Option 1. FA : AE    [ Both FA and EA are radius of circle .So their ratio can't be equal to 1:2.]

Option 2. CB : FE  [ CB is a chord and FE is a Diameter  as length of Chord not given, So we can't Predict about their Ratio.]

Option 3: FE : AH  [As FE is the Diameter and AH is radius.Diameter = 2 × Radius,So FE : AH=2:1]

Option 4 : AH : FE  [Explained above AH: FE=1:2]

Option 5:  AH : AD  [AH is the radius of the circle and D is any point on AH So their ratio can't be 1:2.]

Option (d) AH : FE = Radius : Diameter=1:2 is true.

### If isosceles triangle ABC has a 130° angle at vertex B, which statement must be true? a. m∠A = 15° and m∠C = 35° b. m∠A + m∠B = 155° c. m∠A + m∠C = 60° d. m∠A = 20° and m∠C = 30°

The only choice that doesn't imply something absurd is 'b' .
____________________________________________

OK.  I didn't want to have to do this, but it seems to be necessary:

-- We have an isosceles triangle.
Two sides are equal and the third one is different.
That means that two angles are equal and the third one is different.

-- All 3 angles in a triangle always add up to 180°
One angle is 130°.  If that one were one of the two equal angles,
then just those two would add up to 260° even without the 3rd angle.
So the 130° angle must be the one that's different.

-- The other two angles add up to (180 - 130) = 50°.
And they're the ones that are equal.
So  <A  and  <C  are each  25° .

-- Choice-a).  <A=15° and <C=35°.  No.  Then the triangle wouldn't have
two equal angles.

-- Choice-b).  <A + <B = 155°.  Yes.  Given <B=130, and we calculated <A=25°.

-- Choice-c).  <A+<C = 60° .  No.  They're each 25°.
If they were each 60°, then the total
for the triangle would be (130+60+60) = 250° .

-- Choice-d).  <A20=20° and <C=30°.  No.  Then the triangle wouldn't have
two equal angles.

option (a) shows that the commutative property do not holds under subtraction.

(a) 5 – 1 ≠ 1 – 5

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : Some options showing operation subtraction.

We have to choose out of given options which one shows that the commutative property doesn't work under subtraction.

Commutative property under addition states that for given any two positive numbers and b then following property holds that is it is irrespective of place the numbers are arranged like 2 + 3 = 3+ 2

but when we subtract two number the order or place of number matters.

Like 3 - 2 = 1 but 2 - 3 = -1 ≠ 1

Thus, the commutative property do not holds under subtraction.

5 – 1 = -4 ≠ 1 – 5 = -4

So, option (a) shows that the commutative property do not holds under subtraction.

Possible side lengths of a triangle are determined by the triangle inequality:
a+b>c
where a and b are the shorter sides, (i.e. c is the longest side).
Note that equality does not hold, because it will make a "triangle" with an angle equal to zero degrees.

An example, choice a, 3+5<9, so they are not possible side lengths.

EDITED 2018-02-26
As already indicated in comments, (4, 8, 10) is a feasible set of sides for triangles because the shorter sides are 4 and 8, and the sum (12) is greater than the third side (10).
