    Help turning word problems into equations please...

    Hello, my class has just started exploring rational equations. I have no problem solving the equations on their own but when I need to convert information into these equations I can confuse myself. If anyone can help me with turning these two problems into rational equations, I'd be really...

    How to solve an algebraic equation with fractions with an unknown in the denominator

    There must be something simple I'm missing here, but this just isn't working out for me. How do I solve: (3 / 5x) - (2 / 6x) = (2 / x) + (7 / 3x) I will probably kick myself when I see the solution... Thanks in advance!

    Intersection of three lines - aka a system of three equations with three variables

    So I'm supposed to find the value of m for which these three lines intersect at the same point: mx+2y-1=0 2x+my+3=0 x-y-3=0 One of the many things I tried was to write all three in slope-intercept form like this: y=(1-mx)/2 y=(-3-2x)/m y=x-3 Then I thought, I can just equate the second and...

    How can I solve Logarithmic equations with multiple depented terms?

    I know how to solve this: log_2(x) + log_2(x+2) = 2 But how do I solve this: 8n^2 - 64nlog_2(n) = 0 If I try to get rid of the log: 64nlog_2(n) = 8n^2 \Leftrightarrow 2^{64nlog_2(n)} = 2^{8n^2} \Leftrightarrow 2^{log_2(n^{64n})} = 2^{8n^2} \Leftrightarrow n^{64n} = 2^{8n^2} Dead end...

    Academic Guidance Taking a class in partial differential equations

    I love math, but deep down physics is my true love in this life, but you can't do physics without math so my love for mathematics is definitely up there... I digress... I am wrapping up my undergraduate BS in physics, and getting ready for graduate school. I feel pretty good with basic...

    Parametric equations!

    Let's be honest, equations of curves don't become interesting until you start to throw parameters in there. Nothing satisfies me more than a point travelling along a curve in some defined manner. But... I run into problems of my own with what the equations of motion should be. For...

    Equations with Roots and Exponents

    I'm struggling with the equation below. I've tried putting it into quadratics form to use the quadratics formula, but it has been too computationally arduous for me. I'm not sure where else to start. $x^2+m^2=2mx+(nx)^2$ Since I'm posting making this post, I may as well ask for help on...

    Solving roots equation neatly

    I am to find all real solutions for this problem. $2\sqrt[3]{x^2}-\sqrt[3]{x}=1$ According to my textbook, the solutions are {-$\frac{1}{8}$, 1}. However, I keep getting {-$\frac{1}{2}$, 1} when I try to solve it more practically. I went on Symbolab to see how they do it and I learned if I...

    I would like some help with factoring quadratic equations with leading coefficients.

    Hello. I seem to have some problems factoring quadratic equations when the leading term has a coefficient. Here is an example 3w -7 = sqr(8w -7) (3w -7)^2 = (sqr(8w -7))^2 9w^2 -42w +49 = 8w -7 9w^2 -50w +56 = 0 Ok so here we have a standard form quadratic equation with a leading...
