we will isolate that right triangle marked off with the little angle thing.
We know that, in that right triangle, one of the legs measures 22 ft, and the angle (adjacent) to it, meausres 9.2 degreesIn this case, tan9.2=x/22 where x is that unkown length
cross multiply.
your final answer is equal to x+5.6

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/02/2020 - 11:20 PM

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

Tripling the height will triple the volume.

Formua is r^2 *  \pi * height.

If you triple the radius, you must still square it, so it will be 9 times bigger.

If you triple the height, then it will be 3 times bigger.

Find the range of the function y=-5x-7

Range is how far up or down the garph can go
basically the limits of y

find min and max of y

basically find the biggestor smallest the x can get to influence y
confusing sorry
when x is an even number, that number is still negative


so make that number as small as possible
if x=(big number that is negative)
we get -1/(5^(big number)) which basically makes it nigligible or almost 0

y=-7 is max


when x=big number (positive) we get very negative number

so range is from negative infinity to -7
basically y<-7
we choose < and not ≤ because the -5ˣ will never dissapear, it will just be very, very small


y<-7 is answer

Use graph paper and a straightedge to draw the figure. The set of points (–1, 2), (5, 2), (5, –4), and (–1, –4) identifies the vertices of a quadrilateral

Answer with explanation:

The four vertices of a two dimensional geometrical shape are set of points A(–1, 2), B(5, 2),C (5, –4), and D(–1, –4).

Now plotting it on X Y plane

Point of intersection of Diagonals that is AC and B D given by the formula

   {\text{Mid point of AC}}=[\frac{x_{1}+x_{2}}{2},\frac{y_{1}+y_{2}}{2}]\\\\=[\frac{-1+5}{2},\frac{-4+2}{2}]\\\\=(2,-1)\\\\{\text{Mid point of BD}}=[\frac{5-1}{2},\frac{2-4}{2}]=(2,-1)

Distance formula between two points in two dimensional plane

 =\sqrt{(x_{2}-x_{1})^2+(y_{2}-y_{1})^2}

AB=\sqrt{(5+1)^2+(2-2)^2}=6\\\\BC=6\\\\CD=6, \\\\DA=6

So, the Quadrilateral is Rhombus,because all sides are equal.

Slope of line between two points is given by

=\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}

 Slope of AB

                  =\frac{2-2}{5+1}=\frac{0}{6}

Slope of BC

     =\frac{-4-2}{5-5}=\frac{-6}{0}

Product of slopes = -1

Hence ∠ABC=90°

If in a rhombus one angle measures 90°,then it a Square.

So, Above Quadrilateral with given vertices is a Square.
