Sample Point Of Intersection Calculation: Quadratic With Line

Find the points of intersection algebraically of the graphs of the equations y=x^2-3x+4, and 2x-2y= -8 need to see the algebra got a bit lost as to how to get from Solve equations: Take y=x^2-3x+4 into 2x-2y=-8, we got: Here x-x^2+3x-4=-4 to here We got: x1=0,

Slope-intercept form

Write the slope-intercept form of the equation of the line that passes though point (6,-9) and is perpendicular to the line y+3x=9

Solving a Quadratic Equation

When I work the problem square root of 4x^2 + 15 - 2x = 0, by using the quadratic equation, my answer is a real number because I end up with the square root of 256 which is 16. Should I square both sides 1st or how do I solve the equation?

Solving Rational Expressions

I'm having a difficult time figuring out some of these! For some reason the -1 in this problem is throwing me off - I think! Here's what I came up with last time, I keep getting a different answer each time I work it. 3/(y+5) -1 = (4-y)/(2y+10) 3/(y+5)-1 = (4-y)/2(y+5) y is not equal to -5 LCD is 2(y+5) 2(y+5)*3/(y+5) =

Exponential and Logarithmic Functions : Capacitance

If a capacitor with a capacitance of 0.000005 farads is wired in a circuit with a total resistance of 5000 ohms (the standard unit of electrical resistance), how long must the capacitor be wired to a source voltage to reach 50% of its maximum charge? (The Hint was: Begin by expressing q as 0.5Q)
