# (7a-b+3) - (-2a-8b+8)

Apply plus/minus rule.
-(-a)= a and -(a)=-a
we get
(7a-b+3)-(-2a-8b+8)= 7a-b+3+2a+8b-8
=9a+7b-5

Answer: 9a + 7b - 5

At 9:00 a.m. a train left the station on a round trip that covered 54 miles. It returned after a 30-minute layover. The train averaged 18 miles per hour on the outgoing trip. It averaged 50% faster on the return trip. What time did it return to the station

12pm

Step-by-step explanation:

54 miles in total. I thought of a straight line & the train is travelling to the end & back & that total miles is 54 .

so we divide 54 by 2 to find out how miles is it to go & to come back

54÷2 =27

27 miles to go & 27 miles to come back.

we know on the outgoing trip the train travelled 18 mph.

theres 27 miles

27÷18=1.5

it took 1.5 hours to travel 27 miles or one hour 30 mins .

on the return trip the train travelled 50 % faster .

50 percent of 18mph =9

9+18=27 mph

the return train is travelling 27mph & we know it has to travel only 27 miles

27÷27 =1

the return train would have taken an hour.

but they said there was a 30 minute delay so we have to factor all this in .

out going train 1 hour 30 mins , Return train 1 hour, Delay 30 mins

1 hour + 1 hour +30mins +30 mins =3 hours .

The train left 9 am & returned after 3 hours which is 12pm

Point A is located at (3, 6) and point B is located at (10,−2) . What are the coordinates of the point that partitions the directed line segment AB⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯ in a 1:3 ratio?

)

(4.75, 4)

Step-by-step explanation:

We are to find the coordinates of the point that partitions the directed line segment AB in 1:3 ration.

For this, we will use the following formula:

,

where is the ratio of the first segment to the whole line segment so in this case, it will .

So substituting the given values in the above formula to find the coordinates:

Therefore, the coordinates of the point that partitions the directed line segment AB in a 1:3 ratio are (4.75, 4).

Write the recursive formula for the geometric sequence.

a1 = -2 a2 = 8 a3= -32

recursive

a(1) = -2 ; a(n) = -4 * a(n - 1)

explicit

a(n) = -2 * (-4)^(n - 1)

-2x+3y=-13 and 3x-3y=12

x = -1 ,y = -5

Step-by-step explanation:

--> -2x + 3y +3x-3y = 12-13

--> x= -1

then

--> -2(-1) +3y =-13

--> 2+3y= -13

--> 3y = -15

--> y =-15/3

--> y = -5
