Determine whether the statement, 'I noticed that depending on the values for A and C, assuming that they are not both zero, the graph of Ax^{2} + Cy^{2} + Dx + Ey + F = 0 can represent any of the conic sections', makes sense or does not make sense, and explain your reasoning.

Given, assuming that both A and C are non-zero, then the graph of \(\displaystyle{A}{x}^{{{2}}}+{C}{y}^{{{2}}}+{D}{x}+{E}{y}+{F}={0}\) can represents any of the conic sections. We have to check whether the statement is true of not. Since the general form of the conic is \(\displaystyle{A}{x}^{{{2}}}+{C}{y}^{{{2}}}+{D}{x}+{E}{y}+{F}={0}\) If both A and C are zero then the equation of the section becomes linear which is a contradiction. The equation of a conic section is quadratic. Hence if the values of A and B are non-zero then the graph of \(\displaystyle{A}{x}^{{{2}}}+{C}{y}^{{{2}}}+{D}{x}+{E}{y}+{F}={0}\) can represent any of the conic sections. Hence the statement is true.

Sheila is in Ms. Cai's class . She noticed that the graph of the perimeter for the "dented square" in problem 3-61 was a line . "I wonder what the graph of its area looks like ," she said to her teammates .
a. Write an equation for the area of the "dented square" if xx represents the length of the large square and yy represents the area of the square.
b. On graph paper , graph the rule you found for the area in part (a). Why does a 1st−quadrant graph make sense for this situation? Are there other values of xx that cannot work in this situation? Be sure to include an indication of this on your graph, as necessary.
c. Explain to Sheila what the graph of the area looks like.
d. Use the graph to approximate xx when the area of the shape is 20 square units.

There are similarities and differences between solving 4x + 1 = 3 and 4 sin θ + 1 = 3: In the first equation, I need to isolate x to get the solution. In the trigonometric equation, I need to first isolate sin θ, but then I mustcontinue to solve forθ.Determine whether the statement makes sense or does not make sense, and explain your reasoning.

Determine whether each statement makes sense or does not make sense, and explain your reasoning. I'm using a photocopier to reduce an image over and over by 50%, so the exponential function
\(\displaystyle{f{{\left({x}\right)}}}={\left(\frac{{1}}{{2}}\right)}^{{x}}\)
models the new image size, where x is the number of reductions.
