1. Lukecrayonz

3x=sqrt(7) x=sqrt(7)/3

2. johnson32

hi, i got the answer. not sure if anyone done math labs online, how do you input this

3. 03453660

4. Lukecrayonz

034 what in the world is wrong with your x's lol

5. johnson32

yes, i work this the same, however when inputing it online, coming back incorrect maybe the symbol

6. 03453660

@Lukecrayonz hahaha why???

7. Lukecrayonz

Looks like a 2pi or 2r or something :P

8. 03453660

what ever it looks like but its my habit

9. johnson32

help, how to write the correct solution set (4-3x)^2=39?

10. Lukecrayonz

Expand (4-3x)^2

11. johnson32

expand?

12. Frank1991

If you expand it you get: (4-3x)*(4-3x)=9x^2 -24x +16

13. Frank1991

and then = 9x^2 -24x +16 -39 =0=9x^2 -24x -23

14. Frank1991

and use the abc formula

15. Frank1991

i mean the Quadratic formula

16. Frank1991

I'm dutch, sorry

17. johnson32

@ Frank 1991yes I got what you where saying

18. johnson32

i see what you have here, and i have similar, I guess I need to simplify this because it does not show in my options in labs

19. johnson32

@Frank1991, i meant have to simplify all radicals. heck its multiply choice

20. johnson32

use the square root property to solve for the equation. (x-9)^2=64

21. Frank1991

in the last case you could say $\sqrt{(x-9)^{2}}=\sqrt{64}=8=x-9$

22. Frank1991

so x = 8+9

23. johnson32

@Frank1991, my answers are as yours, but when i type them in them in the computer labs they come back wrong.

24. Frank1991

oh that is strange you could check what wolframalpha is saying

25. johnson32

@Frank1991 sure thing

26. Frank1991

Yes wolfram alpha is also saying something different

27. Frank1991

I forgot about that a sqaure could also be negative

28. Frank1991

so we got one answer but forgot about the second

29. johnson32

yes

30. johnson32

@Frank1991 .. thanks

31. johnson32

The formula A=P (1+r)^2 gives the amount A in dollars that P dollars will grow to in 2 years interst rate r ( where r is given as a decimal), using compound intreset. What interest rate will cause $3000 to grow to$3370.80 in 2 years..

32. johnson32

The formula S=16t^2 is used to approximate the distance S, in feet, that an object falls freely from the rest in t seconds. The height of a building is 1048 feet. How long would it take for an object to fall from the top?

33. Frank1991

To the first question:3000=3370.8(1+r)^2 => 3000=3370.8 (r^2 +2r +1) => r^2 +2r +1 = 3000/3370.8 => r^2 +2r +(1-3000/3370.8) = 0 and solve this for r. Probably one of the answers is negative and that makes no sense

35. mayankdevnani

@johnson32 got it

36. Frank1991

second one: 1048=16 *t ^2 => t = squarroot( 1048/16) = ...

37. Frank1991

I hope it helped @johnson32

38. johnson32

@Frank1991 , so you got 0% interest rate,

39. johnson32

@mayankdevnani , yes thank you got that one solve already

40. mayankdevnani

ok

41. Frank1991

no r is the intrest rate

42. johnson32

@Frank1991 , I got 65.5 seconds for the object falling at

43. Frank1991

so use the quadratic formula for: r^2 +2r +(1-3000/3370.8) = 0 and r would be your answer

44. johnson32

got it

45. Frank1991

oh the 3000 and 3370.8 should switch

46. Frank1991

You obtain r = -2.06 or r=0.06

47. Frank1991

r=-2.06 makes no sense because there is an increase not a decrease, so your final answer is 0.06

48. Frank1991

got it? @johnson32

49. johnson32

yes I got it, thank you
