Re: Solving Multi Step Equations

Hi, thank you for your response. We are not understanding how in your example of the problem, there is a -1x. In the original problem that I posted, there is no -1x. Please explain how you got this number. Thank you. How many x's are in "x"? Is this not one "x"? While the "...

Re: Ti Nspire Unexpected Calculations

It seems you're not the only user to encounter this issue, but it seems rare and the solution eludes.

Re: Two parallel lines cut by a curved line

I drew a third line so the 75 split into 37 and 38, 38 being the bottom half. This means x is 38, which it isn't. You still don't show your work, so we will have to guess. You likely started with something along these lines: picture: \ /L3 \ / \ /37* -----------\----/--------- L1 \ /A _____________...

Re: Solving Multi Step Equations

Hi everyone, we are needing help on [solving] a multi-step equation. \mbox{Solve }\, -x\, -\, 2\,=\, 3x\, +\, 5 In this [worked solution]: -x - 2 = 3x + 5 -1x - 2 = 3x + 5 -3x -3x ---------------- -4x - 2 = 0x + 5 <=== -4x - 2 = 5 -4x - 2 = 5 + 2 = +2 ------------ -4x + 0 = 7 -4x = 7 -4x = 7 --- --...

Re: Two parallel lines cut by a curved line

How do you find x? It's not 38. Could it be 37? What is the use of the 75 angle? Lacking information regarding "x", "38", "37", "the 75 [degree?] angle", or any other information regarding this exercise, I'm afraid there is no way to proceed. Kindly please en...

Re: Sorry my ignorance but please help me to understand why x/sqr(x)

...he states that x/sqr(x) is equal to sqrt(x) which i obviously believe i typed x/sqrt(x) in wolfram alpha and it also gave me the result sqrt(x) but i don't understand why What did you get when you did the simplification? You noted that: \sqrt{ x^2\,}\, =\, x (for non-negative x) so: x\, =\, \lef...

Re: Order of operations isn't working.

I don't understand math; that's why I'm here. I thought that I was doing pemdas exactly...addition comes before subtraction. It seems to me that I'm doing exactly what they gave me. No. As explained in ( this ) lesson, addition and subtraction are at the same "level" and are done at the s...

Re: How to prove the following function is increasing function?

I am stuck on figuring out why the following function is a increasing function when I read a paper. The function is following f(x)\, =\, \dfrac{(x\, -\, 1)\, c^x\, -\, 2x\, c^{x-1}\,+\,x\,+\,1}{2^x\,-\,x\,-\,1}, \, \mbox{ with }\, 1\, <\, c\, <\, 2\, \mbox{ and }\, x\, >\, 2. This a...
