MathFor solving this exercise, we'll use the following way of approaching: a^2 + b^2 + c^2 = (a + b + c)^2  2(ab + ac + bc) 1 + 1/n^2 + 1/(n + 1)^2 = (1 + 1/n  1/(n + 1))^2  2[1/n  1/(n + 1) ...

MathWe'll square the condition and we'll obtain (x + y + z)^2 = a^2 x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + 2(xz + xy + yz) = a^2 But x^2 + y^2 + z^2 > xz + xy + yz. Conclusion is that 3(xz + xy + yz) < a^2, so (xz +...

Math(x^2 9)^1/2 = 4 First we will square both sides: ==> ((x^2 9)^1/2)^2 = 4^2 ==> (x^2 9) = 16 Now add 9 to both sides: ==> x^2 = 25 ==> x= +5

MathWe know that 2 lines are parallel if the values of their slopes are equal. The given equation is x+y=2 and we have to write in the standard from, which is y = mx+n. We'll isolate y to the left...

Mathf(x) = ax^2 + bx + c The point A(1,1), B(0,2), and C(2, 0) are on the graph. Then the point A, B, and C verifies the equations: f(1)=1 ==> a+b+c= 1....(1) f(0)= 2 ==> 0+0+c= 2 f(2)=0...

Mathb1, b2, b3, b4 are terms of a geometric progression where the ratio q=2 We know that b1= 2 ==> b2= 2*2 = 4 ==> b3= 4*2= 8 ==> b4= 8*2= 16 Then: b1*b2*b3*b4= 2*4*8*16 = 1024
