Solution for Square root of 2.5?

Hi y’all. I am notoriously bad at math, somehow got scooted into intermediate algebra. I am stuck on one problem, and was wondering if anyone could show me why / how I am getting stuck.

I can’t add one of them positive, one...

How much tonnage air conditioner is required for 2779 sq ft?

It depends a great deal on where you live and how well your home is insulated. Square feet is not a great help when planning the size of an air conditioner. It is very useful to also have the cubic feet in the home, along with the sizes and types of windows.

Find the sum of the opposite of -18 and its additive inverse?

the opposite of negative 18 is positive 18. It's just like absolute value. |-18| is 18 because 18 is 18 steps away from 0 so is -18 like how it is 18 away from 0 and not -18 away from 0. -18 away from 0 is not a thing. So therefore, the opposite of negative 18 is positive 18 because the opposite of negative is postitve....

What is the meaning of negative traits?

In the personal sense, it means something negative in your personality like being negative (pessimistic) or not concentrating in school. In algebra it means a minus number below zero eg. -2 is 2 less than zero.

What is 40 cubed?

To cube a number means simply to multiply that number by itself 3 times. To work out 40 cubed you would simply go: 403 = 40 x 40 x 40 40 x 40 = 1,600 1,600 x 40 = 64,000 403=64,000 Therefore, 40 cubed equals 64,000. The phrase "multiply that number by itself 3 times." can cause confusion. Sometimes, instead of multiplying it thrice (the number itself) others, due to confusion, just multiply the number by 3... take note it's cube... What do you get if you...

When in doubt you should ask yourself is the angle greater or...
