So i have a tricky question in my take-home intermediate algebra test, but i dont kno if its worded strangely or what... anyway if you could help me out that would be great.
Note: ONLY ANSWER IF you for sure know how to do the problem, because this counts towards my grade.. thanks in advance.
Question:
y varies jointly as m and the square of n, and inversely as p. y=15 when m=2, n=1, and p=6. Find y when m=3, n=4, and p=10.
According to the problem,
y = k*mn^2/p
Substitute the first set of data and find k.
Then substitute the second set of data to find required y value.
just to be clear * means multiply, and no clue what does ^ mean?
but thank you so much for the help, you made that other one easy!
