check my homeworkDo five out six, including Q2 and / or Q5. The problems that involve finding a solution (Q2, Q4, Q5) are to be done algebraically  by setting up and solving an equation. The object of Q2, for example, is not to 'play with' various consecutiveinteger combinations until coming up with the solution (which is five and six) but to decide what the 'unknown' (x, say) should represent, and: (1) develop an equation that involves the unknown and utilizes the information provided; and then (2) solve that equation algebraically – demonstrating that five and six are a solution by 'plugging in' these values into the equation is not solving it. Please show all work / explain your answers. #2 20060212 18:18:17

Re: check my homeworkNo calculator needed thanks to a lesson given by Mathsyperson earlier in this forum. In any factorizable quadratic we can break up the b constant into two terms. Last edited by irspow (20060213 06:30:00)
