Area (Basic Algebraic Manipulation)

The three remaining blocks of land in a new estate have a total area of 2029m2. The second block is 45m2 more than the first block and the third block is 65m2 less than the first block. What is the area of the first block?

Independent and Dependent Variables

In a typical algebraic expression, there are two variables: an independent variable and a dependent variable. The independent variable is the number or the value that can change. The dependent variable's value depends on the value of the independent variable. For example, in the following formula, X=Y*5 Y is the independent

Passing a Competency Test

I am trying to study for a competency test, but I only had intermediate algebra in college 19 years ago! I am looking for web resources and any other material that you can provide that can help me prepare for this test. Thank you.

Find an infinite set of numbers n for which some player

Players 1, 2, 3, ..., n are seated around a table and each has a single penny. Player 1 passes a penny to Player 2, who then passes two pennies to Player 3. Player 3 then passes one penny to Player 4, who passes two pennies to Player 5, and so on, players alternately passing one penny or two to the next player who still has some

Residue Systems: Modulo

5. If m = 11, then a reduced residue system modulo m is 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. Exhibit the pairing of each of the preceding numbers with its inverse modulo m (like Chinese remainder theorem). 7. What is the remainder when 41^5 is divided by 3? When 473^38 is divided by 5? 8. Prove that if p is a prime congruent to 1 modulo

Green's Theorem (Divergence)

? Let D a domain on the plane bounded by a curve C. by applying Green's theorem (in divergence form) to a conservative vector field with potential f, defined on d, show that before attempting this question, recall what is a conservative vector field, as well as the definition of the laplacian . ? Use the divergen

College Algebra I

1.)The following formula can be used to convert from degrees Fahrenheit, F, to degrees Celsius, C: C= 5/9*(F -32) Gold is liquid for Celsius temperatures C such that 1063 degrees <= C < 2660 degrees. Find a comparable inequality for Fahrenheit temperatures. 2.) The following mathematical model: w = 125 (6400/6400 + x)^2

Modern algebra

I am stuck with this question. If phi : F -> R is a nonzero homomorphism from a field F to a ring R, show that phi is one-to-one (Hint: recall that for a ring homomorphism, phi is one-to-one if and only if Ker(phi)={0}. ) Can you help with this? Many thanks in advance

Inequality Interval Functions

10 algebra problems - work must be shown so I can understand how to compute. Examples of questions: --> Solve: x2 - 8x + 20 = 5 --> Solve by quadratic formula: -3x2 - 2x + 5 = 0 --> The crop yield in bushels for a field of tomatoes is 10x2 - 80x + 200 where x is number of pound of fertilizer used. a) How many pounds

Probability of Quadratic Questions and Real Roots

Please use words to describe the solution process: What is the probability that the quadratic equation ax^2 + 2bx + c = 0 has real roots? Note: you must first make sense of the question. What distribution are you putting on the variables a, b and c? Pick one that makes sense and isn't too hard to deal with.

Gradient of Temperature in a Nebula

Suppose that distances are measured in light-years and that the temperature T of a gaseous nebula is inversely proportional to the distance from a fixed point, which we take to be the origin (0,0,0). Suppose that the temperature 1 light-year from the origin is 200 degrees Celsius. Find the gradient of T at (x,y,z). f = __

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) =
