1. Two Martians, Splott and Fizzle, has solved the equation 2x + 4 = –3x + 14. Examine the work of Splott and Fizzle. Identify any errors in the Martians’ calculations and explain, using complete sentences, what corrections they should make.
a. The 4th row of Splott's calculation is unnecessary because he adds 4 instead of subtracting which leads to error on the next row. In Fizzle's 6th row there is addition of 5 instead of 5x which leads to an incorrect final row.
2. Create your own function to teach the Martians about functions. Your function must contain at least two different operations.
a. The function that I created is f(x) = 2x+5, I also made another one which is f(x) = x2 -3x+2
3. Using complete sentences prove to Splott and Fizzle that your function is a legitimate function.
a. I truly believe this function is legitimate because it has one ‘x’ and ‘y’ value because you can check it with the horizontal and vertical line test in which it passes both of them.
4. Using your function, explain to the Martians how to solve for f(3). Show your work and explain each step using complete sentences.
a. I think for you to solve for f(3) in the function f(x) = 2x + 5, you would have to replace the 'x' with an 3. So the new equation would look like f(3) = 2(3) + 5. Then multiply 2 by 3, and get 6. Next add 6 and 5, get 11, so when its solved would be f(3) = 11.
5. Using complete sentences, describe to the Martians how to find the inverse of your function.
a. To find the inverse is just switching out 'y' and 'x', then solving for 'y'. So you would take the function f(x) = 2x + 5, put the 'y' in place of where the f(x) is. You now have y = 2x + 5. Switch out 'y' and 'x'. Now have x = 2y + 5. After you get x = 2y + 5 you want to subtract 5 from both sides, this cancels out 5 on one side. So with the equation x – 5 = 3y . Divide 3 by both sides to get x – 5 / 3 =

279 Words | 2 PagesSolve the given linear system using Cramer’s rule. 5x –9y= –13–2x+3y=5 Complete the following steps to solve the problem: a. Begin by finding the first determinant D: D= (5*3) - (-2*-9) = 15 - 18 = -3 b. Next, find Dx the determinant in the numerator for x: Dx= (-13*3) - (5*-9) = -39 + 45 = 6 c. Find Dy the determinant in the numerator for y: Dy = (5*5) - (-2*-13) = 25 - 26 = -1 d. Now you can find your answers: X = DxD = 6-3 = -2 Y = DyD = 1-3 = -13 So, x,y=( -2 , -13 ) Short Answer: 4. You have learned how to solve linear systems using the Gaussian elimination method and the Cramer’s rule method.

Only after it become clear to the public that there was actually a flaw, did they acknowledge there was a flaw but it was a small and insignificant. They would only replace it if the user could prove that they needed an unflawed processor. This caused IBM to immediately stop all sales of their computers that featured the Pentium chip, forcing Intel to agree to replace all flawed microprocessors with the new unflawed version, but only upon request.

The index, or root of the radical becomes the denominator. This changes the now rational exponent to x^3/3, which simplified leaves x as the final answer.
