Question about Puzzle Massey Ferguson Tractor

# The first expedition to Mars found only the ruins of a civilization. The explorers were able to translate a Martian equation as follows: 5x2 ? 50x + 125 = 0 x = {5, 8}. This was strange mathematics. The value x = 5 seemed legitimate enough but x = 8 required some explanation. If the Martian number system developed in a manner similar to ours, how many fingers would you say the Martians had?

### Whats the answer to y=(x+2)^2 using a new equation in vertical form a transfer right 4 unit up 2 unit and reflect on x axis

Let's start with the original equation. It is in the form y=a(x-h)^2+k, where (h,k) is the vertex. In this case, h= - 2 and k= 0. Thus, is it y=x^2 and we have done a horizontal translation 2 units to the left. I assume we are going to translate this 4 units to the right, then 2 units up, and then reflect it in the x-axis. Before we do the reflection, we will be 2 units to the right and 2 units up. This equation would be y=(x-2)^2+2. If we reflect this in the x-axis, would we get a downward facing parabola y=-(x-2)^2 -2?

Good luck,

Paul

### I need to now facts about mars now!

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun. Named after the Roman god of war, and often described as the "Red Planet" due to its reddish appearance. Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere composed primarily of carbon dioxide.
Cohaagen will not turn the machine on, or he risks losing control of Mars. When the machine comes on, a hot reactor penetrates into an underground glacier, sending huge plumes of oxygen into the Martian atmosphere. This produces a blue sky on Mars, which coincidentally was a feature the memory scientists at Rekall INC were going to put into Quaid's memory during his visit.

which mars are you referring to is it Mars-22 car alarm
http://www.caralarm.com/manuals/MARS/MARS-22.pdf
or some other model like the mars 32 or mars 33
http://www.caralarm.com/manuals/mars/mars-32&33.pdf

or the planet mars

hopefully I have provided the correct model number above

### 42 more than 8 times a number is 114. what is the number?

Translate the English statement into math symbols and solve the resulting equation.
Let x be the number you are seeking.
42 more than some number translates as some number +42
But the some number is 8 times your number x, 8x
You have
8x+42=114
Isolate 8x=114-42=72
Isolate x: divide both sides of the equation by 8
x=72/8=9
Your number is x=9
