A rectangle has an area of 12 square centimeters and a perimeter of 16 centimeters.
Let x be the width of the rectangle and y be the length, then:
xy = 12
2(x + y) = 16
solve the system of equations the result is: x = 2, y = 6 or x = 6, y = 2
Its dimensions are 6 and 2 centimeters.

Simplify 3x + 6x^2 - 5x - x^2

3x + 6x^2 - 5x - x^2
= (6x^2 - x^2) + (3x - 5x)
= 5x^2 - 2x
Simplify 3x + 6x^2 - 5x - x 2

3x + 6x^2 - 5x - x^2 = 5x^2 - 2x

Fill in the next term in the sequence 1/8, 1/4, 1/2
Updated 12/24/2014 5:54:54 PM
The next term in the sequence 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 is 1.
common ratio = 1/2/(1/4) = 1/2*4 = 2
Next term = 1/2*2 = 1

Simplify 2x - 8x - 6y + 9 -14 + x + 11y
Updated 12/23/2014 5:42:51 PM
2x - 8x - 6y + 9 -14 + x + 11y
= 2x - 8x + x - 6y + 11y - 5
= -5x + 5y - 5
