linear speed of an object
an object is traveling around a circle with a radius of 13 meters .if in 20 seconds a central angle of 1/7 Radian is swept out what are the linear and angular speed of the object
Melissa
like this: (2)/(2x)
the aim is to see what will not be compatible with this rational expression. If x= 0 then the fraction is undefined since we cannot divide by zero. Therefore, the domain consist of all real numbers except 2.
Dan
define the term of domain
Moha
if a>0 then the graph is concave
if a<0 then the graph is concave blank

The set of all values you can use as input into a function su h that the output each time will be defined, meaningful and real.

how fast can i understand functions without much difficulty
what is inequalities
Nathaniel
functions can be understood without a lot of difficulty.
Observe the following:
f(2) 2x  x
2(2)2= 2
now observe this:
(2,f(2)) ( 2, 2)
2(x)+2 = 2
4+2=2

a colony of bacteria is growing exponentially doubling in size every 100 minutes. how much minutes will it take for the colony of bacteria to triple in size
I got 300 minutes. is it right?
Patience
no. should be about 150 minutes.
Jason
It should be 158.5 minutes.
Mr
100•3=300
300=50•2^x
6=2^x
x=log_2(6)
=2.5849625
so, 300=50•2^2.5849625
and, so,
the # of bacteria will double every (100•2.5849625) =
258.49625 minutes
Thomas
158.5
This number can be developed by using algebra and logarithms.
Begin by moving log(2) to the right hand side of the equation like this:
t/100 log(2)= log(3)
step 1: divide each side by log(2)
t/100=1.58496250072
step 2: multiply each side by 100 to isolate t.
t=158.49

what is the importance knowing the graph of circular functions?
can get some help basic precalculus
What do you need help with?
Andrew
how to convert general to standard form with not perfect trinomial
can get some help inverse function
ismail
it depends on the equation
Robert
yeah, it does. why do we attempt to gain all of them one side or the other?
Melissa
how to find x:
12x = 144
notice how 12 is being multiplied by x. Therefore division is needed to isolate x
and whatever we do to one side of the equation we must do to the other.
That develops this:
x= 144/12
divide 144 by 12 to get x.
addition:
12+x= 14
subtract 12 by each side. x =2
Dan
The domain of a function is the set of all input on which the function is defined. For example all real numbers are the Domain of any Polynomial function.
Spiro
Spiro; thanks for putting it out there like that, 😁

foci (–7,–17) and (–7,17), the absolute value of the differenceof the distances of any point from the foci is 24.
difference between calculus and pre calculus?
