Writing Functions from Word Problems

20. A wire 10 meters long is to be cut into two pieces. One piece will be shaped as an equilateral triangle, and the other piece will be shaped as a circle. a. Express the total area A enclosed by the pieces of wire as a function of the length x of a side of the equilateral triangle. b. What is the domain of A? c. Grap

Geometry Applications Word Problems

Geometry has many practical applications in everyday life. Estimating heights of objects, finding distances, and calculating areas and volumes are commonplace. One of the most fundamental theorems in geometry, the Pythagorean Theorem, allows us to make many of these calculations. The Pythagorean Theorem states that the square of

Answer: Explain your answer in this space. 3) For the equation x - sqrt(x) = 0, perform the following: a) Solve for all values of x that satisfies the equatio

Explain matrices and triangles

Researchers at the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho coordinate many of the firefighting efforts necessary to battle wildfires in the western United States. In an effort to dispatch firefighters for containment, scientists and meteorologists attempt to forecast the direction of the fires. Some of this data can be

Word problem

(See attached file for full problem description) The area A of an equilateral triangle varies directly as the square of the length of a side. If the area of the equilateral triangle whose sides are of length 2 cm is (√3) cm2 , find the length s of an equilateral triangle whose area A is (√3)/4 cm2.

Geometry

(See attached file for full problem description with proper symbols) The area A of an equilateral triangle varies directly as the square of the length of a side. If the area if the equilateral triangle whose sides are of length 1 cm is (  3 ) / 4 cm 2 , find the length s of an equilateral triangle whose area A is

Conditional Inequality in a Triangle

In a triangle ABC, Angles are given in a particular order. Each angle is an acute angle. A number M is defined as Cos(A-B)/2SinA/2SinB/2. Find the minimum value of M.

Find the Hypotenuse

1. A right triangle is a triangle with one angle measuring 90 degree. In a right triangle the sides are related by Pythagorean Theorem, c^2=a^2+b2 where c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the 90 degree angle). Find the hypotenuse when the other 2 sides measurements are 3 feet and 4 feet.
