Re: Math

Start by doing the subtraction on the left side.

Now cross multiply.

Factor,

You have x = 0 and x = -2. We reject the 0 solution so x = -2.

Re: Math

Multiply both sides by 20.

Clean it up.

Add 8 to both sides.

Subtract 5x from both sides.

Divide both sides by 15 and you get x = - ( 17 / 15).

Re: Math

Times both sides by 24.

Add 9 to both sides.

Subtract 8x from both sides.

x = 1

Re: Math

Take 1 / 9 away from both sides.

Flip them both,

x = 3

For the last one:

Times both sides by 15x.

Divide both sides 4.

x = ( 14 / 4 ) = ( 7 / 2 )

Re: Math

State the domain of y = x2

State the range of y = x2

State the domain of y = x2 + 2

State the range of y = x2  + 2

State the domain of y = 2x2 + 3

State the range of y = 2x2 + 3

State the domain of y = x2  5

State the range of y = x2  - 5

State the domain of y = -x2

State the range of y = x2

Re: Math

State the domain of y = x^2

State the range of y = x^2

I get the domain as R and the range as [0,∞)

State the domain of y = x^2 + 2

State the range of y = x^2  + 2

Domain is R and the range is all positive reals greater than or equal to 2.
