Find an equation that models a hyperbolic lens with a = 12 inches and foci that are 26 inches apart. Assume that the center of the hyperbola is the origin and the transverse axis is vertical.

QUESTION POSTED AT 18/01/2020 - 07:36 AM

Answered by admin AT 18/01/2020 - 07:36 AM

The general form for a hyperbola with the center at the origin and a vertical transverse axis is:
y2/a2 - x2/b2 = 1

From the given:
a = 12

To get b, we use the given distance between the foci.Since it's 26,
c = 26/2 = 13

Using this defintion:
c2 = a2 + b2
b = sqrt(c2 - a2) = sqrt (13^2 - 12^2) = 5

The equation therefore is:
y2/13^2 - x2/5^2 = 1
or
y2/169 - x2/25 = 1

Explain why the graphing calculator cannot be used to solve or approximate solutions to all polynomial equations.

Did your explanation include the following?

Some polynomial equations have complex solutions.

Therefore, complex solutions cannot be found by graphing the related system or function in the Cartesian (x-y) plane.

Polynomial functions with all complex solutions do not have x-intercepts, and the related system of equations will not intersect.

In 4 years, harry’s age will be the same as jim’s age is now. in 2 years, jim will be twice as old as harry will be. find their ages now.

The answer to this question would be:
Jim     =6 years
Harry =2 years

To answer this question, you need to translate the description into a  mathematical equation. If H= Harry's ages and J= Jim's ages, then the equation should be look like this:

1. H+4= J
2. (J+2)= 2(H+2)
     J+2= 2H+4
     J= 2H +2

If you put the 1st and 2nd equation together, the result would be:
H+4= J
H+4= (2H +2)
H-2H= 2-4
-H= -2
H=2

After that insert the H value to either 1st or 2nd equation.
H+4= J
2+4=J
J= 6

Decide whether the following rates are equivalent. 12 pages in 20 minutes or 20 pages in 32 minutes

The two fractions that we can extract from the given rates above are:
                (1) 12 pages / 20 minutes
                (2) 20 pages / 32 minutes
We can reduce the fractions or rates to their lowest term by dividing the numbers by 4 such that,
                 (1) 3 pages / 5 minutes
                 (2) 5 pages / 8 minutes
Therefore, the rates are not equivalent.

Charles has 24 marble. he has 6 more yellow marbles than blue marbles. what is the equation

Answer:

Required Equations are x + y = 24 & x - y = 6

Step-by-step explanation:

let x be the no of yellow marbles that Charles has.

and y be the no of blue marbles that Charles has.

Total Marbles that Charles has = 24

⇒ x + y = 24 ..............(1)

Charles has 6 more yellow marbles than blue marbles.

⇒ x = y + 6

    x - y = 6 ......................(2)

Therefore, Required Equations are x + y = 24 & x - y = 6

Harriet at 1/4 of all pieces
4/4-1/4=3/4

nisha ate 1/2 of remaining (3/4)
1/2 of 3/4=3/8 eaten

ok, so eaten=1/4+3/8=2/8+3/8=5/8 eaten
8/8-5/8=3/8 left
3/8=6 pices
1/8=2 pieces
8/8=16 pices

How do I solve the two step equation 4(x+8)=44

Since the problem is 4(x+8)=44 you will first need to distribute. 4 times x equals 4x. And 4 times 8 equals 32. So that leaves you with a neat problem, 4x+32=44. Next, you must subtract 32 from both sides. You need to do this to both sides to make she that they stay even. So minus 32 on both sides leaves the equation at, 4x=12. Lastly, you must divide both sides by four to get the x alone and the answer is 3. Hope this helped.
