Which ordered pair is a solution of the equation 2x − y = 9 (-4,1) (-2,5) (5,1) (6,-3)

In order to confirm if which ordered pair is a solution of the given equation above, we can just simply plug in the values.
So based on my solution, the correct answer would be the third option: (5,1)
So let us try to plug in the values.
2(5) - 1 = 9
10 -1 = 9
9 = 9

What is the range of the function f(x) = 3x2 + 6x – 9

I have a solution here however with a slight change in the equation:

f(x)=3x^2-6x+1

My solution is:

The domain is all real numbers--there are no restrictions like a square root or variable in the denominator

this is a U shape parabola and you want to find the bottom point, it is at the vertex

x=-b/2a =- (-6) /2 (3) =1
f(1) =3(1)^2 -6(1) +1 =3-6+1 =-2
the minimum is (1, -2)
so the range is all real numbers >= -2

By examining my solution, you could just answer the problem on your own! I hope it helps!

Find the multiplicative inverse of 6 + 2i.

The solution to the problem is as follows:

First thing to do is get rid of the i. Multiplying by 6 - 2i will do this

( 6 + 2i)(6 - 2i) = 6^2 - (2i)^2 = 36 - 4(-1) = 36 + 4 = 40

Dividing by 40 gets you 1

(6 + 2i) (6-2i)/40 = 1

The answer is (6 - 2i)/40 = (3 - i)/20

I hope my answer has come to your help. God bless and have a nice day ahead!

The following data values represent a population. What is the variance of the values? 8, 10, 14, 12 A.22 B.11 C.5 D.10

Variance is calculated by taking the differences between each number in the set and the mean, squaring the differences (to make them positive) and dividing the sum of the squares by the number of values in the set. We do as follows:

Mean = 8+10+14+12 / 4 = 11

Variance = (8-11)^2 +
(10-11)^2 + (12-11)^2 + (14-11)^2 / 4
Variance = 5 <-------OPTION C

Solve the equation for y 2x+6y=13

So here is how we are going to solve for y for the given equation above:
2x+6y=13
Next, transfer 2x to the right side and it will look like this:
6y=13-2x
Now, divide both sides by 6, and it will look like this:
y=13-2x
--------
6
So, this is the final answer for y.

What is 1.892 to the nearest tenth?

We need to look at the number after the tenth, called the 'hundredth'. If the hundredth is 5 or above, we must change the hundredth to 0 and make the tenth one higher.

In this case, the hundredth is 9 and is above 5, so it becomes 0 and the tenth moves higher to become 9.

The number will now be 1.9

Round 24.99 to the nearest tenth

A tenth of 24.99 would be the first 9 after the point. In order to round it to the nearest tenth, we must look at the number after it. If that number is 5 or above, we must make the tenth one higher. In this case, the number after the tenth is above 5, so we change the tenth to a 1! Now the number becomes 25.00

The sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the length of the third side. C. The longest side of a triangle is opposite the largest angle. D. The largest angle of a triangle is between the two longest sides.

we know that

The triangle inequality theorem states that the sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the length of the third side

so

Let

(a−b)²+b²/a²

proof

if A is the area of the
inner squared, so A= c², and c²= (a−b)²+b²

so the side of the outer must be a-b +b=a, its area is a²

Arrange the following polynomial into descending order for x, then interpret the degree of the 2nd term. 7x3y3 + 4 − 11x5y2 − 3x2y

For the answer to the question above,  the power of "y" doesn't influence descending order for x even if it is higher than power of x.

Unordered polynomial is
7x3y3 + 4 - 11x5y2 - 3x2y

Polynomial in descending order  looks like this
-11x5y2 + 7x3y3 - 3x2y + 4

Degree of the second term is 5 ( because of x5 )

The measured weights of 1,000 men in a certain village follow a normal distribution with a mean of 150 pounds and a standard deviation of 15 pounds. Which sentence most closely summarizes the data? About 160 people weigh more than 165 pounds. About 320 people weigh more than 165 pounds. About 320 people weigh less than 165 pounds. About 640 people weigh less than 165 pounds.

Z = (X-Mean)/SD
z1 = (165 - 150)/15 = +1
z2 = (135 - 150)/15 = - 1
According to the Empirical Rule 68-95-99.7
Mean +/- 1SD covers 68% of the values
100% - 68% = 32%
The remaining 32% is equally distributed below z = - 1 and z = +1
32%/2 = 16%

Therefore,

a) Number of men weighing more than 165 pounds = 16% of 1000 = 160
b) Number of men weighing less than 135 pounds = 16% of 1000 = 160

The discriminant of a quadratic equation is negative. One solution is 3+4i . What is the other solution? A.4-3i B.3-4i C.4+3i D.-3+4i

The way you stated the problem, there is an infinity of possibilities for the other solution.

► For instance, the quadratic equation:
x² – (6 + 4i)x + (9 + 12i) = 0
has for discriminant:
Δ = (6 + 4i)² – 4(9 + 12i) = 36 – 16 + 48i – 36 – 48i = -16
which is indeed negative.
Its solutions will then be:
x₁ = [(6 + 4i) + 4i]/2 = 3 + 4i
x₂ = [(6 + 4i) – 4i]/2 = 3
And the other solution here is 3.

► If you are not convinced, the quadratic equation:
x² – (6 + 5i)x + (5 + 15i) = 0
has for discriminant:
Δ = (6 + 5i)² – 4(5 + 15i) = 36 – 25 + 60i – 20 – 60i = -9
which is indeed negative.
Its solutions will then be:
x₁ = [(6 + 5i) + 3i]/2 = 3 + 4i
x₂ = [(6 + 5i) – 3i]/2 = 3 + i
And the other solution here is 3+i.

► In fact, every quadratic equation of the form:
x² – [6 + (4 + α)i]x + (3 + 4i)(3 + αi) = 0
where α is any real, has for discriminant:
Δ = [6 + (4 + α)i]² – 4(3 + 4i)(3 + αi)
= 36 – (4 + α)² + 12(4 + α)i – 36 + 16α – 12(4 + α)i
= 16α – (4 + α)²
= 16α – 16 – 8α – α²
= -16 + 8α – α²
= -(α – 4)²
WILL be negative.
Their solutions will then be:
x₁ = [ [6 + (4 + α)i] – (α – 4)i ]/2 = 3 + 4i
x₂ = [ [6 + (4 + α)i] + (α – 4)i ]/2 = 3 + αi
And the other solution will then be is 3+αi.

Since α can take any real value, you'll obtain an infinity of solutions of the form 3+αi.

► So conclusively:
If the discriminant of a quadratic is negative AND one of the solutions is 3+4i, the only thing we can say about the other solution is that its real part must be 3.

My answer to the question is as follows:

First one looks like you are squaring the number, then multiplying the result by 4, i.e.

y=4x2

second one is similar, but instead of squaring and multiplying by 4, you are squaring and then dividing by 2

A sports memorabilia store makes \$6 profit on each football it sells and \$5.50 profit on each baseball it sells. In a typical month, it sells between 35 and 45 footballs and between 40 and 55 baseballs. The store has no more than 80 footballs and baseballs in stock during the month. What is the maximum profit the store can make from selling footballs and baseballs in a month?

We are given with \$6 profit per football sold and \$5.50 profit per baseball sold. There are 35-45 footballs and 40-55 baseballs sold but there are only 80 balls stock in the store. The maximum profit is incurred from selling more of football and less of baseball. The equal number could also be possible. Having 40 footballs and 40 baseballs can be a possibility. However, having 39 footballs and 41 baseballs has smaller profit than the equal number. Likewise, 41 footballs lead to 39 baseballs which are not within the range. The answer is 40 footballs and 40 baseballs with a total profit of \$460.

Which polynomial expression represents the area of the outermost square tile, shown below? A square shaped tile with length x plus three is shown x2 + 6x + 6 x2 + 9x + 6 x2 + 6x + 9 x2 − 6x + 9

I believe the correct answer from the choices listed above is the third option. The polynomial expression that represents the area of the outermost square tile would be x^2 + 6x + 9. The area of a square is calculated by the square of its side and the side of this square is given as x+3.

A = (x+3)^2 = x^2+6x+9
