Find the x coordinate of the vertex of y = 3x^2 -4x + 2.
By using the formula -b/(2a), we find that the x coordinate of the vertex is 4/6, or x = 2/3
For what values is the function f(x) = 1/x continuous?
The function is continuous for all real values except x = 0, because the function is undefined at that point.
Joshua recently got a raise of 20%. If his new wage is $26,000, what was his starting wage?
26000 = 1.2(x), where x is his starting wage. After dividing both sides of the equation by 1.2, we get $21,666.67.
