Dimensions of a Rectangle Given the Area

James wanted a photo frame 3 in. longer than it was wide. The frame he chose extended 1.5 in. beyond the picture on each side. Find the outside dimensions of the frame if the area of the unframed picture is 70 in.^2 (square inch.)

Constructing two equal angles

Construction- To construct two angles the same measurement Please construct the following. Please make it large enough. not very small thank you Step1. Draw an acute angle. Label the vertex P. Step 2. Use a straightedge to draw a ray on your paper. Label the endpoint T. Step 3. With P as the center , draw a large arc

Countable and normal

A) Reals with the "usual topology." Is there a way to prove this space is normal other than just saying it is normal because every metric space is normal? b) Reals with the "K-topology:" basis consists of open intervals (a,b)and sets of form (a,b) - K where K = {1, 1/2, 1/3, ... } Why connected? Why 2nd countable?

Working with Topological Spaces

Which of the following topological spaces is normal? a) Reals with the "usual topology." b) Reals with the "finite complement topology:" U open in X if U - X is finite or is all of X. c) Reals with the "countable complement topology:" U open in X if X - U is countable or is all of X. d) Reals with the "lower limit topolog

Find the Volume of a Sphere with a Cylindrical Hole

#26 Please see the attached file for full problem description. (a) A cylindrical drill with radius r1 is used to bore a hole through the center of a sphere of radius r2. Find the volume of the ring-shaped solid that remains. (b) Express the volume in terms of height (h).

Metric geometry

In the taxi-cab plane show that ifA=(-5/2,2),B=(1/2,2), C=(2,2), P=(0,0), Q=(2,1) and R=(3,3/2)then A-B-C and P-Q-R. Show that line segment AB~to line segment PQ,line segment BC~line segmentQR, line segment AC~line segment PR. Sketch an appropriate picture.

Equation of the tangent plane to the central conicoid

Problem 1 Find the equation of the tangent plane to the central conicoid x2 - 4y2 + 3z2 + 2 = 0 at the point (1,2,0). Problem 2 Find whether the plane 2x + 3y + 2z =3 touches the central conicoid 2x2 + 3y2 + z2 = 1 or not.

Volume of Ellipsoid

Find the volume of the ellipsoid formed by rotating the semi-ellipse (see attached word file) about the x axis.

Geometric Constructions Parallelograms

USING ONLY AN UNMARKED STRAIGHT EDGE AND A COMPASS CONSTRUCT THE FOLLOWING: (A) A RHOMBUS GIVEN: ONE SIDE AND ONE ANGLE (B) A PARALLELOGRAM GIVEN: TWO ADJACENT SIDES AND THE INCLUDED ANGLE (C) A PARALELLOGRAM GIVEN: THE DIAGONALS AND THE ANGLE BETWEEN THEM ********I NEED STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO CONSTRUCT

Creating the formula to find the dimensions of a cube.

In Metric. Three college students are trapped in deep snow in northern Canada. To survive they must build an igloo using snow large enough for all of them to fit and small enough to not exceed their strength and stamina. Luckily one of them is a math major and quickly formulates the dimensions of the blocks they need to cu

Geometry: Angles

Suppose <ABC and<CBD form a linear pair, <CBD and <DBE form a linear pair, and m<CBD=30. A. Draw a figure representing these angles. B. Write a paragraph proof showing that <ABC=<DBE.
