Y=mx+b
m=0.5
b is value of y in y-intercept, b=-2

The equation of this line is
y=0.5x-2

When x=4
y=0.5x-2=y=0.5*4-2=2-2 = 0
When x=4, y=0.

Question
The axis of symmetry for the graph of the function f(X)=3x^2+bx+4 is X=3/2. What is the value of b?
Solution 1
Remember that the axis of symetry is x=value of how far it is from the origin

also remember that the vertex formula is -b/(2a) so
a=3
3/2=-b/(2(3))
3/2=-b/(6)
mutiply both sides by 6
18/2=-b
9=-b
multily both sides by -1
-9=b

so the equation is
f(x)=3x^2-9x+4

b=-9
Solution 2

-9

Question
A quality control officer is randomly checking the weights of pumpkin seed bags being filled by an automatic filling machine. Each bag is advertised as weighing 400 grams. A bag must weigh within 2.1 grams in order to be accepted. What is the range of rejected bags, x, for the bags of pumpkin seeds?
Solution 1
If a bag of pumpkin seeds must weigh within 2.1 grams in order to be accepted, each bags must weigh between (400-2.1) grams and (400+2.1) grams. This means that if a bag weighs less than 397.9 grams (x<397.9) or more than 402.1 grams (x>402.1) it will be rejected. Therefore, 397.9>x>402.1 is the range of rejected bags.
Solution 2 Step-by-step explanation:

The range of rejected bags is found by summing and subtracting the 400 grams to 2.1 grams, because the second one represent the acceptable margin.

So, we have: However, this interval represents the accepted range. The rejected range would be the opposite. Therefore, the asked range is: Question
Jason incorrectly simplified the expression (4.7*10^2)*(6.2*10^4). Circle each step that shows an error. Then correct each of those steps so that the expression is correctly simplified. A Step 1. 4.7*6.2*10^2*10^4 ______________ B Step 2. (4.7*6.2)*(10^2*10^4) ______________ C Step 3. 29.14*10^8 _____________ D Step 4. 2.914*10^6 _______________
Solution 1

Step C is incorrect: When you simplify exponents the rules are: for adding or subtracting, the base and the exponent must be equal; when multiplying the base must be the same, and the exponents will add; when dividing the base must be the same and the exponent will subtract.

Step D is incorrect: The last division is wrong, you could treat it with the general rule of exponents, subtracting the exponents of the base 10.

The correct procedure of each step is:

C. D. Solution 2

Question
25.6% of what # is 21.12
Solution 1
To solve this problem, we are going to use the percent proportion, a/b = p/100, where a is the part of a number b, the whole, and p is the percentage out of 100.
When we fill in our known integers into this equation, we get

21.12 / b = 25.6 / 100

Next, to simplify this equation, we should use cross products (means - extremes products theorem).  This means multiplying the numerator of one fraction and the denominator of the other fraction and setting them equal to one another.

21.12(100)=25.6(b)

When we multiply, you get

2112 = 25.6b

Finally, we divide both sides by 25.6, to get our variable b, alone, and without a coefficient.

82.5 = b

Therefore, 25.6% of the number 82.5 is 21.12.
Solution 2

Let

x------> the number

we know that % is equal to By using proportion divide by both sides therefore Question
Expand and simplify: (x + 5y) (x − 3y)
Solution 1
We have the following expression:
(x + 5y) (x - 3y)
Rewriting we have:
x ^ 2 - 3xy + 5xy - 15y ^ 2
Grouping similar terms we have:
x ^ 2 - 15y ^ 2 + 2xy

The complete and simplified expression is given by:

x ^ 2 - 15y ^ 2 + 2xy
Solution 2
The answer you are looking for is x^2 - 15y^2 + 2xy.

To find this, you must first distribute one set of parenthesis into the other. This will give you "x^2 - 3xy + 5xy - 15y^2. You then combine like terms (-3xy and +5xy), to get "x^2 + 2xy - 15y^2". Finally, you organize the numbers based on their power (highest to lowest). Your final answer would be x^2 - 15y^2 + 2xy.

Question
Angles α and β are the two acute angles in a right triangle. Use the relationship between sine and cosine to find the value of α if α < β. sin(2x − 8) = cos(6x − 6)
Solution 1
We know that
in a right triangle
if sin A= cos B
then
angle A and angle B are complementary angles
so A+B=90

therefore

(2x-8)+(6x-6)=90-------> 8x-14=90----> 8x=104--------> x=13°

(2x-8)-----> 2*13-8----> 18°
(6x-6)-----> 6*13-6----> 72°
if α < β
then
α =18°
β=72°

Question
The function f(x) = 12x + 50 gives the amount of money a worker earns for working x hours per week. What is the inverse function?
Solution 1
12x + 50 = 62 but you have to multiply x by 12. I don't know what x is so maybe subtract 12 and 50 to get x. 50 - 12 = 38/ 38 x 12 = 456, then divide that by 50. 456 / 50 = 9.12, round up or down and get 9. 9 is your answer!!!

Question
How do you use properties of exponents and logarithms to rewrite functions in equivalent forms and solve equations?
Solution 1
Some of the logarithmic properties most used to solve equations are the following.
1) log (a) ^ b = b * log (a)
2) log (a * b) = log (a) + log (b)
3) log (a / b) = log (a) - log (b)
These logarithmic properties can be used to solve equations.
For example:
2 ^ x = 56
If we apply to this equation the logarithm function on both sides that we have left
log (2) ^ x = log (56)
This function is equivalent to the first.
If we now apply the property 1) of the previous logarithms, we can reveal x of the equation.
x * log (2) = log (56)
x = log (56) / log (2)
x = 5,807
Thus, thanks to the properties of the logarithms, this exponential function could be solved
