What is the quadratic equation used for?

It is used to solve quadratic equations that cannot be factored. Usually you would factor a quadratic equation, identify the critical values and solve, but when you cannot factor you utilize the quadratic equation.

How do you write equation for vertical stretch of factor 6 for yx?

It would be y = 6x.

In which situation would you factor out -1 from a trinomial?

You would factor out -1 (a) from a trinomial in an equation such as -a^2 +30a - 2a + 60 after the middle term has been separated. The final answer of this trinomial would then be (a-30) (a-30).

What is the equation for the scale factor of a sphere?

There is no equation for the "scale factor" of a sphere. If I assume you to mean how the volume increases with radius then you would use the volume equation for a sphere and calculate volume based on corresponding radii. You could then divide the resultant volumes to give a percentage or factor of how much larger or small one sphere is than another. You'll see that a small change in radius causes a large change in volume due to the volume being a cubic factor of the radius.

What is the answer to x2- 4x-12?

Not being an equation, but a single set of terms, this has no "answer". If you are looking to factor it though, it would be (x - 6)(x + 2).

What do each of the variables in speed equation stand for?

v = d/t would be Speed is Distance / Time(more properly for physics)Velocity is Displacement / Time

Factor by grouping. 9m2-6m-8?

Normally, you would basically do the opposite of F.O.I.L. (First Outside Inside Last). However this equation is prime and can not be factored.

When you factor using the zero product rule the solutions to the simpler equations are also the solutions to the original equation true or false?

True - otherwise there would be no point in doing it!

What is the equation of a logarithmic equation?

A logarithmic equation would be any equation that includes the log function.

What can you do if a new CD player in a 1993 Saturn SL1 doesn't work even though properly connected in all the right places?

If it is hooked up properly and still doesnt work, then my first instinct would be to return it and buy a new one. Perhaps, its the CD player.

What the Vertex form of a quadratic equations?

The vertex form of a quatdratic equation (otherwise called the graphing form) is y=a(x-h)2+k For those of you who don't know what 'h', 'a', and 'k' are, they are parameters. The negative sign in front of the 'h' refers to the opposite of the x coordinate in the vertex. The 'k' refers to the y coordinate in the vertex. 'A' refers to the stretch or compression factor. So, for example, say you have a parabola with a stretch factor of 2 whose vertex coordinates are (-3,4). The equation would be y=2(x+3)2+4 Of course, if a parabola has no stretch/compression factor, there would be no 'a' in the equation. I hope this helped, and good luck!
