##### Expertise

Any algebraic question you've got. That includes question that are linear, quadratic, exponential, etc.

##### Experience in the area

I have solved story problems, linear equations, parabolic equations. I have also solved some 3rd order equations and equations with multiple variables.

##### Publications

Documents at Boeing in assistance on the manufacturiing floor.

##### Education/Credentials

MS at math OSU in mathematics at OSU, 1986. BS at OSU in mathematical sciences (math, statistics, computer science), 1984.

##### Awards and Honors

Both my BS and MS degrees were given with honors.

##### Past/Present Clients

Students in a wide variety of areas since the 80's; over 1,000 of them have been in algebra.

I like that the solutions are either right or wrong. I also like the fact that they are easy to get to in most cases.

##### What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Well, I know expansions to (a+b)^2, (a+b)^3, (a+b)^4, (a+b)^5, and (a+b)^6, but that is only the start. I desire to know even more on pi than only 60 places, more on root two two ten places, more than 2^10= 1,024, 2^20 = 1,048,576, or 2^30 = 1,073,741,834, more that e = 2,71828182845905... etc.

Did you know that parabolas have zero, one, or two solutions? Of course, you most likely will know this after taking it awhile.

Some say 1/0 is meaningless, but others say that its infinity.

#### 2017-03-23 Solution:

If we multiply both sides by 2 we get 2xy = x+y.  Subtract y from both sides and get 2xy - y = x.  Factor out  y on the left and get y(2x-1) = x.  Divide both sides by 2x-1 and get y = x/(2x-1).    Let

#### 2017-03-22 Decimal Number Indices.:

It is known that ln(2.3^4.2) = 4.2*ln(2.3).    From this, do the exponential on both sides.  This gives e^ln(2.3^4.2) = e^[4.2*ln(2.3)].    Since the exponential and ln() are inverses, the lest side reduces

#### 2016-10-22 Algebra-Compound Inequalities:

An inequality is written if one side is known to be less than the other.    For example, 1<3, which is read as, "one is less than three."    To see this, subtract 1 from both sides and you get 0 < 2,

#### 2016-09-18 Finding y-intercept of quadratic without knowing equation:

Once we know the parabola in the form of y = ax˛ + bx + c, it can be done.  The y intercept is found by putting x=0, and the result is y = c.    To get these points, take the values as (x1,y1), (x2,y2)

#### 2016-07-25 Two candidates having same number of votes.:

Yes, it is possible.  However, it is not very likely.  I'll assume that the election has a 50-50 chance of voting for two choices.    Let's suppose that only 20 people voted on something.    To get the
