Question:

What are the common symbolic meanings of rain?

Marty R.
Answer:

Sometimes, rain symbolizes cleansing, and a new beginning. "It cleans the soul," they say. This is especially true if it washes something away: snow, chalk writing, or just a heat wave. It's washing away the past as well. Other times, rain serves to underline a scene's despair, hardship, or general unhappiness. If blue skies represent good times, then rain represents the opposite. There are even many occasions, especially in film, that both of rain's associations are combined. This is the reason that standing in the rain often goes is so often combined with hitting rock bottom; it means that things are hard, and it's time for a change.

Question:

x(3x + 5) = 9. Solve for x.

Marty R.
Answer:

Subtracting 9 from both sides, 3x^2 + 5x - 9 = 0. Now we use the quadratic formula: x = (-b + or - the square root of [b^2 - 4ac])/2a x = (-5 + or - the square root of [25 - 108])/6 x = (-5 + or - approx. 11.53)/6 x = 6.53/6 or 16.53/6 x = approx. 1.088 or 2.755
