Go to the choices one by one. Do you think A is correct?

I dont understand what any of them mean, so i couldnt tell you, im really slow in math, :'(

i just dont understand and i have so much to do! IM SO SORRY :(

first search what what are direct variations and inverse variations ...

In an inverse variation, the values of the two variables change in an opposite manner - as one value increases, the other decreases.

can u dumb that down for me ... :/

@experimentX Im a senior i just finished school and 50 assigments with questions like these in them before june 3rd or i cant walk with my class on june 6th, This because i failed ceramics by 2 points because the teacher hatted me and gave me a failing grade, they then put me in a math class online like im doing now to help me fill in the half a credit i need to graduate so im begging you please give me the answer, i learned all this when i was a freshman but i havent done it in a while i have so much to do in so little time and re learning things is just not ganna help PLEASE :(

I suggest you focus on learning ... what will you do with answers if you don't know that they mean?

finish that video ... i'll give you half answer

omg :'( this only question 4 of this stupid thing ive been on here for hours, and im only on question 4! ill never get this done in a week. (Sigh) i appreciate your help, but im sorry, watching a 9 minute video does not help me with time, i need to finish this fast. Thanks i really appreciate it though u also helped me on other questions which i do appreciate. I REALLY DO.

Well, it says that inverse variation involves two quantities wherein as the other one increases, the other decreases. Take for example: 8 workers paint a house for 5 days; 10 workers paint the house for 2 days. Since there are more workers, the work could be done in a shorter time. That's inverse variation. Do you somehow get it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay yea.
experimentX
  • experimentX
so what do you think ??? does f(x) increase or decrease with x??
anonymous
  • anonymous
increase?
experimentX
  • experimentX
f(1) = 1/1 = 1 f(10) = 1/10 = 0.1 do you think it is increasing
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well, with the denominator increasing, what do you think will happen to the quotient of 1 and the increasing denominator?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Just think of it this way, the number 1 is divided into greater and greater parts. So great that it will reach infinity! Do you now think it is still increasing?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ooh no its decreasing
anonymous
  • anonymous
its breaking up into smaller numbers to make a bigger number
experimentX
  • experimentX
well ... this is called inverse variation!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so is that it?
experimentX
  • experimentX
half part
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, well A is correct. Go check the other ones. Tell us what you think of each option.
experimentX
  • experimentX
since it's inverse variation ... it cannot be direct variation now two option left
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think b is right
experimentX
  • experimentX
don't make guess ... i'm not gonna answer
experimentX
  • experimentX
first search for what's "real number"
anonymous
  • anonymous
B IS RIGHT BECAUSE IT DOES HAVE REAL NUMBERS DOSENT IT
anonymous
  • anonymous
i know what real numbers are, they are every number basically
experimentX
  • experimentX
is pi a real number??
experimentX
  • experimentX
is 1 and 10 real number??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
experimentX
  • experimentX
*are ...
experimentX
  • experimentX
is 0 real number??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
experimentX
  • experimentX
find f(x) at 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
its not there
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why is it not there?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because..
anonymous
  • anonymous
listen guys i appreciate you guys tring to teach me but again, this is question 4 and weve been doing this for about 20 minutes now. i still have 6 more questions to do and then after that i have 50 more quizes like this to do in 7 days. so ill just guess and fail like i did before but i really apprciate you guys helping me with the last answer.
experimentX
  • experimentX
ah ... i misread ... i thought it was domain
anonymous
  • anonymous
honestly i would have sat there and learned it but i just dont have the time
experimentX
  • experimentX
okay ... the range is all over the real numbers now we have only one statement
anonymous
  • anonymous
I GUESSED A B AND D THANKS GUYS.
anonymous
  • anonymous
The range can't be zero. So the range is not all real numbers.
experimentX
  • experimentX
i'm still not sure if you can consider infinity to be real numbers or not generally ... i have said lim x->inf 1/x = 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well yeah. But as far as I can remember, my calc teacher told me that infinity is not a number. That's why you can't close bracket the infinity sign. :)
experimentX
  • experimentX
I guess you are right http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_real_number_line there's been a long debate on infinity ... observing it only made me confused still ... lim x-> inf ... will never make 0 on range
experimentX
  • experimentX
well ... A and D are your answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yup! =)) Cause that is just the limit and we are not actually sure if it will be 0.
