    solving y'=1/x

    Advance apologies for the lack of formatting--I'm new, but I'll learn quickly. So I'm looking to find a particular solution of y'=1/x, satisfying (-1,1). I note that this must come from the family y(x)=ln[abs(x)]+C, substitute x=-1 and y(x)=1 to get that C=1. So my desired particular solution...

    Solving Systems of Equations with Absolute Value Operators

    Suppose we have a line formula: Y = m * (X) (Eq. 1) where m is our slope and our y-intercept is zero. Let us assume that m is always positive. Now let us suppose that Y and X are actually functions of two hidden variables, P and Q. Y = |P + Q| (Eq. 2) X = (|P| + |Q|) /...

    Need help solving for part of fractional exponent

    Want to solve for x in equation: y =a^(1/x). Unable to isolate x on left side of equation so get equal values on both sides when replacing y & a with numbers. This is the orig equation with numbers: 0.01 = 0.67^(1/x) Thanks for any help.

    Looking for verification on a function and solving for different variables.

    logb(CL) = e # solve for L be = CL logC(be) = L # solve for C be = CL logL(be)= C I'm pretty sure L is right but what am I doing wrong when solving for C? Preciate any help anyone can provide. Thx.

    Solving for H

    My stepson has a problem that ask him to rearrange an equation to solve for h, a, b using this equation. A=1/2 (a+b)h Mathway solves it for "h" as: h=2A-1/2(a+b) see picture attached. How does the "2" get to be infront of the "A"? Thanks!
