To find the percent of a number, you multiply the percent in decimal form and the number.Therefore 45% of s is 0.45s.
If 45% of s is 18, then 0.45s=180. Since 0.45=45100=920, then 0.45s=18 can be rewritten as 920s=18.
To solve for s, you then need to multiply both sides of the equation by 209, which gives:
209×920s=209×18
s=209×18 Simplify
s=40Multiply
Therefore, 45% of 40 is 18.

Help with simplification of a rational expression (with fractional powers)
Can you please help me see what I don't see yet. Here's a problem from a high school textbook (ISBN 978-5-488-02046-7 p.9, #1.029):
( a 1 / m a 1 / n ) 2 4 a ( m + n ) / m n ( a 2 / m a 2 / n ) ( a m + 1 m + a n + 1 n )
Here's my try at it:
( a 1 / m a 1 / n ) ( a 1 / m a 1 / n ) 4 a ( 1 / m ) + ( 1 / n ) ( a 1 / m a 1 / n ) ( a 1 / m + a 1 / n ) a ( a 1 / m + a 1 / n )
...which is
( a 1 / m a 1 / n ) 4 a ( 1 / m ) + ( 1 / n ) a ( a 1 / m + a 1 / n ) 2
Wolfram Alpha's simplify stops here, too. I don't see where to go from here. The final form, according to the book, is this:
1 a ( a 1 / m a 1 / n )
How did they do it?

A population of bacteria is initially 6000. After three hours the population is 3000.
If this rate of decay continues, find the exponential function that represents the size of the bacteria population after t hours. Write your answer in the form f(t)=a(b)t.
Use either fractions, or decimals rounded to 4 places

I have an electronic weighing-machine, which I believe to be internally very accurate. It will weigh up to 100 kg, but not activate below 10 kg. The digital display reports to one decimal place. The problem is that I don't know whether the reading is rounded (with worst error ± 5050 g) or truncated (with worst error −100 g and expected bias −50 g). I have a great quantity of books and papers that can be stacked on the machine to make any weight within its limits, but nothing of accurately known weight.
I guess that any solution must be statistical. A good solution would minimize the number of weighings, given a tolerance probability of a false indication. (Assume a 50/50 prior distribution for rounding/truncation; for illustration, a targeted probability could be 0.1%.)

If 2 f ( x ) + 3 f ( 1 x ) = 4 x 2 + 6 x and f 1 ( x ) = 1 then find the value of x
If 2 f ( x ) + 3 f ( 1 x ) = 4 x 2 + 6 x and f 1 ( x ) = 1 then find the value of x
My Attempt:
2 f ( x ) + 3 f ( 1 x ) = 4 x 2 + 6 x
2 f ( x ) + 3 f ( 1 x ) = 4 x + 6 x
At this point, I couldn't get other idea except comparing the corresponding terms. please provide any other method...
