Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.016. Solve the problem. A rain gutter is made from sheets of aluminum that are 24 inches wide. The edges are turned up to form right angles. Determine the depth of the gutter that will allow a crosssectional area of 58 square inches. There are two solutions to this problem. Round to the nearest tenth of an inch.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what we can do is rewrite 9 as 1*9 and simplify like this \[\Large \sqrt{9} = \sqrt{1*9}\] \[\Large \sqrt{9} = \sqrt{1}*\sqrt{9}\] \[\Large \sqrt{9} = i*3\] \[\Large \sqrt{9} = 3i\] make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large \left(10+\sqrt{9}\right)^2\] turns into \[\Large \left(10+3i\right)^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Next you'll use the box method or FOIL or the distributive property to expand out \[\Large \left(10+3i\right)^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since i = sqrt(1), squaring both sides gives i^2 = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. For number 16. Solve the problem. A rain gutter is made from sheets of aluminum that are 24 inches wide. The edges are turned up to form right angles. Determine the depth of the gutter that will allow a crosssectional area of 58 square inches. There are two solutions to this problem. Round to the nearest tenth of an inch. I got to 20+ square root 296 all over 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know the answer is 10.. Its the only option.. My first attempt I canceled out the fractions by using 4... Yes thats it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, sorry I misread your first inequality it should be \(\Large x \ge 10\) which turns into `[10, infinity)`

anonymous

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We solve for y to get xy + 5y = 1 y(x + 5) = 1 y = 1/(x + 5) which is definitely a function. You can graph to verify that it passes the vertical line test. Any given input (x) produces EXACTLY ONE output (y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure on this one either.. I was thinking plug (x1) in for the x's but im not sure. If you want me to post in a new question I can.

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're right. Replace each x with x1 and simplify \[\Large f(x) = 3x^2  4x + 4\] \[\Large f(\color{red}{x}) = 3(\color{red}{x})^2  4(\color{red}{x}) + 4\] \[\Large f(\color{red}{x1}) = 3(\color{red}{x1})^2  4(\color{red}{x1}) + 4\] now simplify the right hand side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1` If you want me to post in a new question I can. ` yes please. It's getting laggy with all of these questions. It's a good idea to have one question per post to avoid clutter and lag
