Inequalities can be treated just like equations with one major difference - if you multiply or divide both sides using a negative number then the Inequality Sign is reversed. This doesn't actually apply in these questions.
1) 8x + 9 < 9x - 8...add 8 to both sides and subtract 8x from both sides

Assuming that you can't use a calculator etc. And that the answer is an integer.
1) Express 11664 in terms of its prime factors.
11664 = 2^4 x 3^6 = (2

^{2})^{2 }x (3^{3})^{2}Then, √11664 = 2^{2 }x 3^{3 }= 4 x 27 = 108 2) Write 11664 as 116.64 x 10^{2.}√10^{2 }= … Read moreAs the expression is a radical (a root of another quantity) and figures within the square root are multiplied then see is any of them can be expressed as perfect squares. If this can be done then the square root of these perfect squares can be taken outside the square root sign.

^{1}/_{2}(n^{2}+ n)...then 650 = n^{2}+ n...and the equation can be written:- n^{2}+ n - 650 = 0...which can be factored (n + 26)(n - 25) = 0 As we are only concerned with a positive integer solution, this occurs when n - 25 = 0, thus … Read moreThe wholesale cost can be regarded as 100%.
After a markup of 130% the retail price is equivalent to 230% (100 + 130) of the wholesale cost.
If the retail price = 213.90 then the wholesale price = 100 x (

^{213.90}/_{230}) = $93.003x = 8y + 11
x + 6y - 8 = 0...which can be written as x = -6y + 8
We now have both equations in the same format. It can be seen that we can make the coefficients of x equal in both equations by multiplying the 2nd equation by 3.

^{2}+ 10x + 7 = 0 Bring the coefficient of x^{2}to 1 by dividing throughout by 2. 2(x^{2}+ 5x +^{7}/_{2}) = 0 Note : (x + h)^{2}= x^{2}+ 2hx + h^{2}...so h = half the coefficient of x 2(x +^{5}/_{2})^{2 }-^{22}/_{4}= 0 2(x + … Read moreIf , a/b = 7/20 then 20a = 7b and we can write... 20a - 7b = 0
As a + b = 135 then multiplying throughout by 7 gives 7a + 7b = 945
Adding these two equations gives, ...27a = 945 : Then a = 945/27 = 35
Substituting this value for a … Read more

4x + 32 / x

^{2}+ 9x + 8 4 is a factor of both terms in the numerator. 4(x + 8) / x^{2}+ 9x + 8 The quadratic expression in the denominator can be factored : X^{2}+ 9x + 8 = (x + 1)(x + 8) 4(x + 8) / (x + … Read moreThe Slope/Intercept form of equation for a straight line is y = mx + c, where m is the slope(gradient) and c is the y-intercept (when x = 0).
4x - 10y = 11
10y = 4x - 11
y = 4x/10 - 11/10
y = 2x/5 - 11/10 (or y = 0.4x - 1.1)

Let the width of the original rectangle be W, then the length = (W + 5)
The area of this rectangle = W(W + 5) = W

As Time (T) varies inversely with Horsepower (P) then, T ∝ 1/P which implies T = k/P where k is a constant.
When T = 10, P = 200 therefore , 10 = k/200 : K = 200 x 10 = 2000

The equation of the circle can be written (x - p)² + (y - q)² = r², where r is the radius and (p,q) is the centre of the circle.
Then, (x - 3)² + (y + 1)² = 9², is the equation of the circle with its centre at (3, -1)and radius 9.
