Im not exactly understanding what your looking for i dont see an X in there except what i would assume is a multiplication sign?
Hi I'm new and need help desperately. I have to admit I am probably not as good in math than most of the people on this site, but I tried my best and just can't figure this problem out.
Can someone please help me out?
1.532 x 0.659 = 0.623
1.542 x 0.631 = 0.623
1.589 x 0.669 = 0.554
1.474 x 0.705 = 0.669
I know each line is simple of course, but the actual problem is X has to match on all 4 lines....
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you're asking...?
Please reply with the full and exact text of the exercise and its instructions, including clarification of what "X" is supposed to indicate (is it a "times" sign, a variable, an empty slot to be filled in, or something else?) and what you mean by "X has to match" (match what? how?).
Thank you!
X is an empty slot to be filled. When I said X needs to match is that it has to be the same on all 4 lines.
Here is the question:
Please find a formula that will solve all 4:
1.532 _ 0.659 = 0.623
1.542 _ 0.631 = 0.623
1.589 _ 0.669 = 0.554
1.474 _ 0.705 = 0.669
_ would be the blank space where the formula goes. I have no idea where to begin to create the formula.
from the first 2 lines:
The OPERATOR on the constants in line1
give the same results as the OPERATOR in line2 on those constants.
Line4 and Line5 have a constant (0.669) in common.
That is the key to defining what the operator does.
If ADDITION/SUBTRACTION
subtract line2 from line1
results in:
This does NOT hold if the OPERATOR is multiplication or division or exponentiation.
