# A man who can row in still water at 3 mph heads directly across a river flowing at 7 mph.

He drifts downstream at the river's speed, 7 mph. He has a 3 mph component across the river.

His direction with respect to the heading angle (straight across) is

tan^-1 7/3 = 66.8 degrees (towards downstream)

hope this helps :)

Martin randomly selects 3 days of the week to work at his uncle's farm. What is the probability he selects Monday, Tuesday, and Friday in any order?

A week has 7 days. That is, number of total days, n = 7
Number of Mondays in a week = 1
Number of Tuesdays in a week = 1
Number of Fridays in a week = 1

This is a case of selecting without replacement in that order.

P(Monday) = 1/7
P(Tuesday) = 1/(n-1) =1/(7-1) = 1/6
P(Friday) = 1/(n-2) = 1/(7-2) = 1/5

P(Monday, Tuesday, and Friday) = (1/7)*(1/6)*(1/5) = 1/210

Step-by-step explanation:

To factor an equation, break the polynomial into two binomials which multiply to make it. There are three main ways to factor:

Regular: Find two numbers that multiply to C and add to B from .

Grouping: Find two numbers that multiply to A*C and add to B. Then split B into the two factors and factor by GCF.

Difference of Squares: Factor by taking the square root of each term.

Serial numbers for a product are to be made using 2 letters followed by 3 numbers. If the letters are to be taken from the first 6 letters of the alphabet with no repeats and the numbers are taken from the digits 0 through 9 with repeats possible, how many serial numbers can be generated?

2 Letters chosen among 6 with no repeat:
a) the first has 6 ways
the second has 5  ways

Then to choose 2 letters among 6, with no repeat, there are 6x5 = 30 ways

b) 3 numbers are taken from the digits 0 through 9 with repeats (total = 10)
the first has 10 ways
the second has 10  ways
the third has 10  ways

Then to choose 3 numbers among 10, with repeat, there are 10x10x10= 1000 ways
And the total serial numbers that can be generated is
30 x 1000 = 3000

Which values of x are the solutions to the equation, 4x^2-30=34

The values of x in the equation 4x² - 30 = 34 is x = { -4 , 4 }

What is an Equation?

Equations are mathematical statements with two algebraic expressions flanking the equals (=) sign on either side.

It demonstrates the equality of the relationship between the expressions printed on the left and right sides.

Coefficients, variables, operators, constants, terms, expressions, and the equal to sign are some of the components of an equation. The "=" sign and terms on both sides must always be present when writing an equation.

Given data ,

Let the equation be = A

The value of equation A is

4x² - 30 = 34

On simplifying the equation , we get

Adding 30 on both sides of the equation , we get

4x² = 64

Divide by 4 on both sides of the equation , we get

x² = 16

Taking square roots on both sides of the equation , we get

x = ± 4

Therefore , the value of x is x = -4  or x = + 4

Hence , The values of x in the equation 4x² - 30 = 34 is x = { -4 , 4 }
