(1) Solve cos⁡2x= -1/2 for x. Give a general formula for all of the solutions. List six specific solutions.

(2) f(x)= (4x^2- x-3)/(2x^2- 11x+5)
a) Find all of the intercepts
b) Find all of the asymptotes.
c) Build a sign chart to define when the graph is above and below x axis.
d) Use this information to build a graph.

3)   Solve the exponential equation 7^2x+ 7^(x+1)- 120=0.


I tried all these problems, for pr (1) i got 5pi/6, for (2) got 2,6 for a and b
and for (3) i got the ans as 0.715

Is my ans correct? Am confused with themeek

Find the foci and vertices for y^2/36+x^2/9=1
I got it as(0,4) and vertices (12,9)
I used the (x-h) and (y-k) form and found the ans.

But, my teacher told it is wrong. Does anybody knows this?

If the points (a,2a) (2a,a), (a,a)and enclose a triangle of area 18 sq units, the centroid of the
triangle is

I tried this problem by finding the area, perimeter, side and then atlast the equation of median
and then find the centroid, and got the ans (4,4)

But my teacher says it is wrong

I dont know wat is wrong?? is tere any other method to solve this?
