Polynomial Help
Can anyone help?
I have a few problems on my math I need help with.
( the little ^ means its an exponent)
(h^2+1) divided by (2h^4  h^3 + h^2 + h  3)
A word problem im having trouble with is
The area of a trianle is 15x^4 + 3x^3 + 4x^2  x  3 sqaure meters. The length of the triangle is 6x^2  2 meters.
one other problem is
(using a variable)
choose a number and mutliply by 3
then add the sum of your number and 8 to the product you found
now divide by the sum of your number and 2
what number will the volunteer always have at the end. Explain?
I got
3x+(x+8) divided by 2.
but it doesnt make sense

With the division I get 2x^2  x  1.

The third one,
I think is (3x + x + 8)/ (x+2)
= (4x + 8)/(x+2)
= 4(x+2)/(x+2)
=4
So you always get 4.
You can see this by subbing in numbers too....
