1/4(8-4p) + 2p = 12

Use distributive property by multiplying 1/4 by each term inside parentheses:

2 - p + 2p =12

Combine like terms:

2 + p = 12

Subtract 2 from both sides:

P = 10

P is equal to 10

How to get your answer:

So 1/4(8-4p) + 2p = 12

First you need to distributive by multiplying 1/4 to each term like this:

2 - p + 2p =12

Then you have to combine to terms just as I did below:

2 + p = 12

Then you need to subtract 2 from both sides to get 10 so:

P = 10

Question
Which equation, when solved, results in a different value of x than the other three? 8.3 = negative 0.6 x + 11.3 11.3 = 8.3 + 0.6 x 11.3 minus 0.6 x = 8.3 8.3 minus 0.6 x = 11.3
Solution 1

An equation is formed of two equal expressions. The correct option is A.

What is an equation?

An equation is formed when two equal expressions are equated together with the help of an equal sign '='.

The given equation can be solved as,

A.)

8.3 = -0.6 x + 11.3

8.3 - 11.3 = -0.6x

-3 = -0.6x

x = 5

B.)

11.3 = 8.3 + 0.6x

11.3 - 8.3 = 0.6x

3 = 0.6x

x = 5

C.)

11.3 - 0.6x = 8.3

-0.6x = 8.3 - 11.3

-0.6x = -3

x = 5

D.)

8.3 - 0.6 x = 11.3

8.3 - 11.3 = 0.6x

-3 = 0.6x

x = -5

Hence, the equation, which when solved, results in a different value of x than the other three is 8.3 - 0.6 x = 11.3.

Solution 2

Answer:

11.3 = 8.3 + 0.6x

Step-by-step explanation:

You would subtract the 8.3 from 11.3 so you would get 3 = 0.6x. Then you would divide both sides by 0.6 resulting in x = 5.

Question
What are the angles that are coterminal with an angle of rotation of 300 degrees?
Solution 1

Answer:

-60° and 660°

Step-by-step explanation:

Coterminal are angles that have the same terminal side when in standard position.

To obtain an angle coterminal with an angle of rotation of 300 degrees, we add 360° to obtain:

300°+360°=660°

We also subtract 360° to obtain:

300°-360°=-60°

This is because an angle of rotation could be in the clockwise or counterclockwise direction.

Question
Solve by factorisation 2x^2+3x-20=0
Solution 1

After factorizing the equation, we get "x = 4 and x = -5".

Given:

  • 2x^2+3x-20=0

By applying the factorization, we get

→   2x^2+5x-8x-20=0

By taking common, we get

2x(x+5)-8(x+5)=0

→         (2x-8) (x+5)=0

→                       2x-8=0

                                x = \frac{8}{2}

                                x = 4

or,

→                        x +5=0

                               x =-5

Thus the above approach is right.
