System of equations - comparison method 2009-01-02
From nick:
Hi, I am doing a project on system of equations by using comparison method, but for some reason or another, i can't seem to find any information on the comparison method at all. So, please would you help me by giving me a website that you know of that has some information on my method. And, if you know the answer, can you please tell me why or when do we use system of equations by using comparison method? Thank You

One boundary of a pond is parabolic in shape. 2006-01-20
From Glenn:
One boundary of a pond is parabolic in shape. The boundary passes through the points A(-20,45), B(40,40) and E(30,35). The equation of the parabola is of the form y=ax2+bx+c. Find the equation of the parabola and the coordinates of the vertex of the parabola. Any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

From Scott:

I hope that u can help me....I am a college student taking a class in Pre Calculus.....I have homework due this Friday and it counts a BIG Percentage on my FINAL grade.....I am getting mixed up and can not figure out a few problems.....Please help me.....

Method Of Subsitution

Problem 1. y- 8x = -5
x(squared) + y(squared) = 25

Problem 2. y = x(squared) - 2x - 6
Y = x(squared) - 4

Two linear systems 2000-08-01
From A student:
please help me with this homework question. 5/x + 6/y= 19/6 3/x + 4/y =2
hint: let a = 1/x and b = 1/y substitute these expressions into the system to find a and b. Then find x and y.

This is a question I answered wrong on a test: solve the given system for x, y, and z. Express your solutions in terms of a, b, and c.

Simultaneous equations 2000-03-11
From Laura Molck:
My name is Laura Molck and I am in Year 11 in Australia. Please help me with the following. I know that they are all simultaneous equations which I can do but I have trouble with the formulae to work the equations. Can you please help!!

1. A tent manufacturer produces 2 models, Outback and Bushwalker. From earlier sales records it is known that 20% more of the Outback model is sold than the Bushwalker. A profit of $200 is made on each Outback sold, but $350 is made on each Bushwalker. If during the next year a profit of $177,000 is planned how many of each model must be sold?
