xXy = 98
x+y = 21
when you multiply 2 numbers you get 98, when you add them you get 21
whats the y=bla equation for this simple problem
xy = 98Originally Posted by Wojtek
x + y = 21
y = 21 - x, thus
x(21 - x) = 98
21x - x^2 = 98 -> x^2 - 21x + 98 = 0
(x - 14)(x - 7) = 0
x = 14, 7
with x = 14 -> y = 21 - 14 = 7
with x = 7 -> y = 31 - 7 = 14
Answers are x = 14, y = 7 and y = 7 and x = 14

I just guessed and checked. Atlas did it the smart way.
sometimes i guess on those integral problems where you have to find the volume of an irregular object. it is fun but i get 17s and 26s on my quizzes.Originally Posted by Epgs

If you dig this forum, you'll learn I failed Russian.
And since russian lvl1 wasnt available in the next semester I could not sign up for the next semester, thus, had to stay home.
Stupid college policies.
But, college here in quebec isnt the same as college in the states.
6 years grade school
5 years high school
2 or 3 years of college (3 career, 2 pre-university)
3+ years of university
