Question about Uniform motion

The fundamental formula for such problems is where d represents the distance covered when moving at a speed s during a length of time t. This formula can be solved for s or t (if d is in miles and t is in hours, then s has the units of miles/hour) Smith bicycled 45 miles going east from Durango, and Jones bicycled 7

Two different forms of solutions of Linear Diophantine Equation ax + by = c

If (xo,yo) is a solution of the Linear Diophantine equation ax + by = c , then the set of solutions of the equation consists of all integer pairs (x,y), where either x = xo + tb/d and y = yo - ta/d ( t = ........,-2,-1,0,1,2,........) or , x = xo - tb/d and y = yo + ta/d ( t = .........,-2,-1,0,1,2,......

Sales Revenue Linear Equations

Sale managers normally want to increase revenue R by selling more. For example, a manager may know by experience that revenue R will increase or decrease according to the following mathematical linear model for a a sales price P and quantity sold Q of a certain commodity: P=Po +-px [This represents a linear equation with posi

Simplify / Reduce the Expression (Radicals)

Simplify the following expression: (see attachment) Hint: The first step is to make the radical a perfect cube (so that exponent equals index) so as to eliminate the radical from the denominator. Note: A radical expression of index n is in simplified form if it has: ? no perfect nth powers as factors of the radicand ?
