    Negative numbers dividing inequalities

    Hi, so I have a quick question, and it's confusing me. |3x+7|>=8 So the answer is x>=1/3 and x>=-5 <--- I got that by dividing 3x by negative fifteen, now I know when you have x and it's negative you flip the signs but what if it's not x that is being divided for example: 3x+7>=-8...

    Dividing Polynomials, missing terms.

    I have two problems: a.) When (x^4 + kx^3 - 2x^2 + x + 4) is divided by x-3, the remainder is 16. What is k? b.) If (2x^3 +Mx^2 + Nx + 6) is divisible by both (x-1) and (x+2), find the values of M and N. Help, I don't seem to get what am I supposed to do so I can answer this.

    Dividing two power series

    So I have two functions $f$ and $g$ which are holomorphic on some disk $D(a,r)$ and such that $g$ is never zero on that disk. Where we can represent the two function as power series given by $f(z)=\sum\limits_{n=0}^\infty a_n(z-a)^n$ and $g(z)=\sum\limits_{m=0}^\infty b_m(z-a)^m$ Let...

    Dividing with unknown?

    I have this weird question here: 1x3y|_15__ | -___| 0 so 1x3y divided by 15 , the multiplier is the empty space and the leftover is 0. They ask for the sum of x. The answer given is 33. How? x or y can be from 0-9, but they come up with 33??

    Dividing 2x1 Matrix by 2x1 Matrix

    Hi Everyone, I have a question that I already know cannot be solved by normal means. The equation I'm working on ended with two matricies being divided,but neither is square. The matrix equation I have is (1 0)^T/(0 1)^T, where the matricies are column vectors, not row vectors (hence the ^T -...

    Dividing Variables Quick Question

    I feel stupid asking this...but... If I have the equation nRT=(\frac{p+an^2}{V^2})(V-nb) and I want to solve for p... ...multiply both sides by V^2... V^2nRT=(p+an^2)(V-nb) Why can I not now divide both sides by (V-nb) to get \frac{V^2nRT}{V-nb}=p+an^2 ? Sorry if this is a dumb question...

    How many possibilities are there for dividing a string to substrings, of any length?

    Hi. I just can wrap my head around this. Let S be a string of length n: S=\sigma_1\sigma_2... \sigma_n how many possibilities are there for dividing it to substrings? for example: S_1=\sigma_1\sigma_2\hspace{12pt} S_2=\sigma_3...\sigma_i\hspace{12pt} S_3=\sigma_{i+1}...\sigma_n is one...

    Dividing by zero

    Why can a number divided by zero equal infinity? Apparently it has something to do with asymptotes. Like, when change in x is zero and change in y is not zero, the result is infinity. Could someone explain it please (Doh)

    Dividing mass lifted by parties

    Say 4 men lift 200 kilos. Can I simply divide 200 by 4 to get 50kg each...So they lifted 50kilos each (given the same posture and dimensions of the lift)? Or is the calculation more complex?
