Subtract b/8 to both sides:
b 2 + 4 b 8 = 88
Subtract 4 to both sides:
b 2 b 8 = 88 4 b 2 b 8 = 84
Multiply b/2 by 4 to obtain a common denominator and subtract the fraction:
4 b 2 × 4 b 8 = 84 3 b 8 = 84
Multiply both sides by 8.
3b=(84)(8)
Divide both sides by 3.
b=672/3=224
Therefore b=224
Verify:
224 2 + 4 = 224 8 + 88 116 = 116

How do you calculate volume with cubes of fraction lengths?
I keep having trouble with one exercise. The questions are like this: how many 1 / 4cm cubes does it take to fill a prism if the prism is 1cm ×  7 / 4cm × 2cm?
I've tried converting all the side lengths to multiples(?) of 1 / 4, such as 4 / 4 × 7 / 4 × 8 / 4 and multiplying but I still get the wrong answer. How do I calculate this?

Let P be a polynomial of degree n , n 2, P ( X ) = i = 1 n ( X z i ) m i
with zeros z 1 , z 2 , , z n
Decompose the rational fraction P P
My thoughts:
P ( X ) = i = 1 n ( X z i ) m i
P ( X ) = i = 1 n m i ( X z i ) m i 1 ? ? ( X z i ) m ?
I don't know with what i should fill the ?
Then:
P P = i = 1 n m i ( X z i ) m i 1 ? ? ( X z i ) m i i = 1 n ( X z i ) m i = ?
I'm stuck here
