# 2x - 5y=-15can someone walk me through this?

Answer: The equation given in the question has two unknown variables in the form of "x" and "y". The exact value of "x" and "y" cannot be determined as two equations are needed to get to the exact values of "x" and "y". This equation can definitely be used to show the way for determining the values of "x" in terms of "y"and the value of "y" in terms of "x". Now let us check the equation given.
2x - 5y = - 15
2x = 5y - 15
2x = 5(y - 3)
x = [5(y - 3)]/2
Similarly the way the value of y can be determined in terms of "x" can also be shown.
2x - 5y = - 15
-5y = - 2x - 15
-5y = -(2x + 15)
5y = 2x + 15
y = (2x +15)/5
= (2x/5) + (15/5)
= (2x/5) + 3
So the final value of x is [5(y -3)]/2 and the value of y is (2x/5) + 3.

In the 1st generation, there are 3 rabbits in a meadow.

Step-by-step explanation:

The number of rabbits in each generation can be modeled using a geometric sequence of the form:

Where is the first term of the sequence, is the ninth term of the series, r is the common ratio

To find the proportion we divide the consecutive terms of the sequence as shown

Then the common ratio is:

The first term of the series is:

Then the explicit formula is:

julian is mixing drops of food coloring to create green frosting for a cake he uses 18 drops of yellow dye and 12 drops of blue dye find the ratio of drops of blue dye to total drops of dye express as a SIMPLIFIED RATIO

so the ratio is 18:12. you just divide each number down as much as you can so for this they are both divisible by 6 giving you a ratio of 3:2

Which 3 Comparisons are correctA 0.4 meter > 0.04
B 0.04 Meter >0.3
C 0.3 Meter < 0.3
D 0.5 Meter > 0.65
E 0.65 Meter >0.61
F 0.65 Meter <0.04

A and E are the only ones I see which are correct, did you perhaps type it in incorrectly? I hope this helps, have a nice day! =)
