Finding value of variable

I am practicing for CLEP exam. Can't work problem backwards. Multiple choice. What is the remainder when x to the 3rd + 5x to the 2nd - 6x + 10 is divided by x + 3 ? I know the answer is 46, I just don't know why. Can some one walk me through it?

Putting a function in a form y=

Y = x^2 - 4x - 5 = x^2 - 2*2*x - 5 = ( x^2 - 2*2*x +2^2 ) - 2^2 - 5 = (x-2)^2 - 2^2 - 5 = (x-2)^2 - 4 - 5 = (x-2)^2 -9 y = (x-2)^2 -9 How do I put this in the form y=a(x-H)^2+K, how do I graph this function, and why is it not necessary to plot points to graph when using y=a(x-h)^2+K?

Algebra word problem

If John has 300 feet of lumber to frame a rectangular patio (the perimeter of a rectangle is 2 times length plus 2 times width). He wants to maximize the area of his patio (area of a rectangle is length times width). What should the dimensions of the patio be? How do I set up this equation?

Sum of consecutive odd integers

If m and n are odd integers with n>1, given the sum of n consecutive odd integers, starting with m, is 18,079. Find all possible values of m and n.

Lebesque measurable sets in R^n.

Prove that lebesque measurable sets in R^n form sigma algebra. ( Please use basic definition when you talk about the lebesgue measurable sets in R^n). The def we have is: (k_1)^(m)={ -1/2 + m_i =< x_i =< 1/2+ m} m=(m_1,m_2,...,m_n) m belongs to z^d Now we say that A in R^n is Lebesque measurable set in R^n if

Speed and Distance

Distance and Speed

Janet drove 120 miles at x mph before 6:00 a.m. After 6:00 a.m., she increased her speed by 5 mph and drove 195 additional miles. Write a rational expression for her total traveling time. Evaluate the expression for x = 60.

Context-fee language

Thank you for taking the time to look at my problem. I cannot make math symbols, thus, I will let ^ denote "raised to the power." For example, a^2 is a squared or a "raised to the power" of 2. Also, I will use the symbol * to denote multiplication. For example, 2*7=14. Okay, here is my problem: Show that the language L={ a
