An impossible problem 2017-09-15
From Fay:
Given math homework problem of: Gary and Larry given 2 numbers and told to add together. Gary subtracted and got 14. Larry multiplied and got 799. I tried substitution:
X-Y=14 and X x Y=799
X= Y+14
(Y+14) Y=799 and here I'm stuck at Y squared+14 Y= 799
using substitution I got 47x17=799 but not 14b when subtracted. HELP?????

Coefficient of variation 2011-04-14
From Braden:
When determining coefficient of variation (CV) or %CV is it possible to calculate %CV for two variables? For instance can %CV be used to determine the precision of 5 data points on a graph using the X and Y coordinates? or does %CV need to be determined for each variable separately?

Factor completely 2002-03-07
From Taylor:
I'm supposed to completely factor this but I don't know what to do with all the variables.

a3b5 - a2b5 - 12ab5.

Does it have anything to do with b5 being a common factor or am I completely off?

Solve for two variables 2001-02-25
From A student:
How do I solve for %1 and %2 in the following formula when T1, T2 and T3 are known? %1 and %2 are ratios of the same element, therefore %1 + %2 = 100%

(%1 x T1) + (%2 x T2) = T3
