Hello cooljackiec,
I've noticed that you have been posting many AoPS problems along with their official diagrams.
Please remove them as they constitute plagiarism and cause a permanent record that students who are attempting to solve the problems will see.
Thank you.

Ahhhh, yes. I didn't think of that. However, I'm not sure what the values should be. How do we transfer

into
?

## #7 Re: Help Me ! » Two circles' intersection » 2015-07-27 08:55:19

Yup! Thanks! I will be using it from now on!

## #8 Re: Help Me ! » Algebra Question » 2015-07-27 05:35:29

How would we factor

?

## #9 Re: Help Me ! » geometry problems » 2015-07-27 05:28:06

Can someone explain how to get the answer for Q4? Thanks.

I got the Geogebra thing. I've used Geogebra before, but not the spreadsheet. I've learned it now. Thanks.

The circles

and
intersect in two points A and B. Find the slope of
.

I got

, but I don't know what do do next! (\pm is plus or minus, and it's from the quadratic equation). I got that answer by expanding the second equation and using the first equation to find what x^2 and x are in terms of y. Then, I substituted them in and solved. I don't know what to do next now.

Can someone help me solve this? Thanks.

Can you explain how you got it? Thanks.

## #17 Re: Help Me ! » 3d geometry? » 2015-07-22 07:19:59

Wait, I got 20pi... It's wrong! I got 1/4\pi as the volume of the top and 81/4\pi as the volume of the whole thing.

## #18 Re: Help Me ! » 3d geometry? » 2015-07-22 06:08:02

How did you get the base as 20-2x?

## #19 Re: Help Me ! » Circle Geo Problems » 2015-07-22 06:06:50

What did you guys get for Q3?

Oh, so the cross-section is vertical? And that tiny triangle is the top part of the cone?____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

@bobbundy
I posted something there. Can you help me there? Thanks.

I used a simpler algebra way to find x. Because you could use Pythagorean Theorem and write the base as 16+2x. Then since we also have the base as 20-2x. Setting them equal to each other we get x=1. Then use the ratios y/(y+10)=x(10-x) to find y.

I don't know which base you guys are talking about. Also, is x the radius of the inscribed circle?
