Equations and inequalities: summary and exercises
 A linear equation is an
equation where the power of the variable(letter, e.g.
$x$ ) is 1(one). A linear equation has at most one solution
 A quadratic equation is an equation where the power of the variable is at most 2. A quadratic equation has at most two solutions
 Exponential equations generally have the unknown variable as the power. The general form of an exponential equation is:
$k{a}^{(x+p)}=m$
 A linear inequality is similar to a linear equation and has the power of the variable equal to 1.
When you divide or multiply both sides of an inequality by any number with a minus sign, the direction of the inequality changes. You can solve linear inequalities using the same methods used for linear equations
 When two unknown variables need to be solved for, two equations are required and these equations are known as simultaneous equations. There are two ways to solve linear simultaneous equations: graphical solutions and algebraic solutions. To solve graphically you draw the graph of each equation and the solution will be the coordinates of the point of intersection. To solve algebraically you solve equation one, for variable one and then substitute that solution into equation two and solve for variable two.
 Literal equations are equations where you have several letters (variables) and you rearrange the equation to find the solution in terms of one letter (variable)
 Mathematical modelling is where we take a problem and we write a set of equations that represent the problem mathematically. The solution of the equations then gives the solution to the problem.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
