For this assignment I will be working 2 projects. For project #1 I will solve equations ( a) x² - 2x - 13 = 0 and ( c ) x² + 12x - 64 = 0 using steps a-f from page 379 Mathematics in Our World. For project #2, I selected five numbers consisting of 0, two even, and two odd. The projects actually comes from an interesting method for solving quadratic equations. The methods came from India (Bluman, 2011.) I will show my work by starting with Project 1 (A) and (C) and then move to Project 2. For Project 1 (A) and (C), step (A) requires me to move the constant term to the right side of the equation. (B) asks me to multiply each term in the equation by four times the coefficient of the x squared term. (C) requires me to square the coefficient of the original x term and add it to both sides of the equation. For (D) I must take the square root of both sides. (E) wants me to set the left side of the equation equal to the positive square root of the number on the right side and solve for x. Lastly, for (F) I will set the left side of equation equal to the negative square root of the number on the right side of the equation and solve for x. Below I will show you the work for each step for Project 1 (A) The I will do the same for (C). Step (A) x² - 2x - 13 = 0 wants me to move the constant term to the right side of the equation. To do this I wrote x² - 2x - 13 + 13 = 0 + 13 which I got me to the answer x² - 2x = 13. Step (B) asks me to multiply each term in the equation by four times the coefficient of the x squared term. From the answer from step (A) x² - 2x = 13 using 1 as the coefficient term and multiplying it by four the answer is: 4x² - 8x = 52 Below is the work I did to get the this answer (4 * 1) * (x² - 2x = 13)

(4) * (x² - 2x = 13)
(4)*x² + (4)*(- 2x) = (4)*(13)
4x² - 8x = 52
Step(C) I will square the coefficient of the original x term and add it to...

Let’s pretend for a moment that I was hired to work at the Fabulous Hotel as their head chef. In order to accept this job, I signed a contract with the hotel locking me into working for them for two years. After the two years were up, the Amazing Hotel down the street decided that they like my work ethic and skills in the kitchen, and the hotel owner offered me double what I...

A double-blind placebo control parallel groups design was used to ensure non-bias from the test administrators. Dependent measure included tests of sustained attention, verbal learning, hand-eye coordination, and spatial memory assessed before the study, 4 weeks into the study and at the end of...

The first situation involving stereotyping I was involved in was racial. I am Asian and sometimes I face racial accusations and comments. Though I do not pay much attention to comments, they still do bother me to a degree. For example, one day my wife and kids were walking with me through Wal-Mart and a group of people passed us making Asian jokes. When they walked passed me they started mimicking...
