• ### How do I find this quadratic's vertex?

I have the quadratic 5x^2+3=f(x) I know this is a quadratic because when I plug in x values, the second differences are the same. I found the y intercept (3), the x intercept (sq.rt of -3/5 which is an imaginary number). First question, how can that be? Also, I am trying to find the vertex as well.

I found the y intercept (3), the x intercept (sq.rt of -3/5 which is an imaginary number). First question, how can that be? Also, I am trying to find the vertex as well. The x value of the vertex is -b/2a. In 5x^2+3 a=5 b=0 c=3 So how can there be a vertex in this quadratic if it will be -0/10? Maybe this isn't a quadratic? Thank you if you help.

• ### If the area of a rectangle is a rational number, is the perimeter...?

A rational? Irrational? Irrational or rational? Neither rational nor irrational? I think it is rational, but I'm not completely sure. I think it is rational because if a number starts out rational, it can't turn irrational unless you do something to it.

Hi, so my mom is not letting me get another guinea pig. I know that they are better in pairs, and I have told my mom everything. I have told her and shown her all the evidence that guinea pigs are better in pairs, and she still says no. I have the money for a bigger C&C Cage and there is room for it (i measured) in my room. I have had my guinea pig for about three months now, and she always chews on the cage and I know that she is lonely. I try to be with my guinea pig at least 2 hours a day, but I have a social life and homework and I can't spend all my time with my guinea pig. I have enough money for a second guinea pig and a cage, and I am responsible. My mom doesn't give me a straight answer, and she thinks that our guinea pig is OK by herself, because "all she does it eat". I really don't know what to say to my mother to let me get a second one. (I have already made 3 powerpoints and she doesn't even answer when I bring up this topic).

But, I rarely ever get hiccups and this experiment will be hard to do considering if it was someone outside or in school that has hiccups, I won't have the hot sauce or the cold water or hot water with me to test it. So how do you start hiccups? I've heard of drinking water quickly, and then gulping a huge breath of air. Does it work? I tried on myself and only got the hiccups once and than it stopped. Please help, I really want to do this for my project! (It's just that it's a big inconvenient.)
