MathWe'll note x1,x2,x3 the roots of the equation x^3  x^2 + 7x + 1 = 0 and y1,y2,y3, the roots of the equation which has to be determined. In order to determine an equation, we'll use the Viete...

MathBecause the point A belongs to the graphic of the function f(x), the coordinates of A verify the expression of the function f(x). f[(a1)/3]=5*[(a1)/3]+2 But f(x)=y, so f[(a1)/3]=(a+1)/2 From...

MathWe'll write the complex number in algebraic manner: z=a+b*i z=sqrt (a^2+b^2), so 2*(a+b*i)= sqrt (a^2+b^2) + 2i 2*a + 2*b*i=sqrt (a^2+b^2) + 2i The expressions from the both sides have to be...

MathWe notice that the given equation is a binomial equation. We'll add both sides i: z^10 =  i z= (i)^1/10 We'll write the complex number (i) in an algebraic form: i= 0+(1)*i After that, we'll...

MathWhen a graph of a function passes through the given points that means that the coordinates of the points,substituted in the expression of the function, verifies it, so: A belongs to the Graphic of...

MathFor the beginning, we'll rewrite the square roots from the expression: sqrt63= sqrt(7*9)=sqrt(7*3^2)=3*sqrt7 sqrt700=sqrt(7*10^2)=10*sqrt7 sqrt28= sqrt(7*4)=sqrt(7*2^2)=2*sqrt7...

MathLet's recall the important relations between the terms of a geometrical progression. bn=b1*q^(n1), where b1 is the first term, q is the ratio and bn is the general term. Also bn=b(n1)*q. Based on...

MathWe'll calculate the expression for n=1, so that E(1)=2^(7*1+3)+3^(2*1+1)*5^(4*1+1)=2^10+3^3*5^5=85399 E(1)=23*3713 so E(1) is divisible by 23. Let's suppose that for k>1,...

MathWe notice that the system is a symmetrical system which could be solved using sum and the product, S and P. We'll note: S=x+y=5 P=x*y=8 We'll consider x and y as being the roots of the equation:...

MathWe'll calculate the value of the function f(x), using one from the both expressions, which are depending on a specific range of values. So, for x=3, we'll use the expression f(x)=x1 because...

The Scarlet LetterAfter the minister's clandestine meeting with Hester in the forest, Hester has convinced him that they must leave the colony and return to England where they can live together as a family. Arthur...

MathTo study the sign of the expression, we have to study the sign of the numerator and denominator, separately. Numerator: f1(x)=x^2  5x + 6 , which is a second grade function. Denominator:...

MathWe'lla analyze each ratio inside the brackets, to check if we can divide them. We'll start with the ratio (8x^6)/(2x^3) and we'll divide it by (2x^3). (8x^6)/(2x^3)=4x^3 The ratio...

Essay LabJust off the top of my head a few things come to mind: You could use the film "A River Runs Through It," there are numerous examples of the way that the family or individual members of it approach...

MathWe notice that the expression f(x)2f(x)=3x1 is a linear function. f(x)=ax+b. We'll substitute "x" by "x" and we'll rewrite the above expression. f(x)2f((x))=3(x)1 f(x)2f(x)=3x1 (1)...
