Bonds usually pay interest on the first day of January and July

2018-01-25 19:36:31 UTC

That's usually what semiannual implies.

2018-01-25 19:36:37 UTC

Ok.

@SamanthaM awesome, I think this is the first homework help of the new academic channels!

2018-01-29 00:29:26 UTC

Would anyone @here be willing to read my rought draft for a paper I'm writing on this video:

2018-01-29 00:29:35 UTC
2018-01-29 00:31:37 UTC

Also any specific sources to help back up my statements would be appreciated

2018-01-29 00:37:17 UTC

@StrawberryArmada I suggest putting the paper into a google doc, and creating a share link where anyone with the link can comment on (but not edit) the document

2018-01-29 00:39:17 UTC

Good idea

2018-01-29 00:46:18 UTC

This should work

2018-01-29 00:46:20 UTC

Halp pls

@StrawberryArmada Alright dude I looked over it, left my comments and some sources I found. Hopefully someone else can give it a once over as well @here

2018-01-29 01:22:32 UTC

Thanks mate. I still have a week before the finally draft

2018-01-29 01:25:17 UTC

yw!

2018-01-29 02:52:36 UTC

Anyone able to help with an algebra problem? Pretty basic

2018-01-29 02:53:17 UTC

@Warren H shoot

2018-01-29 02:53:32 UTC

9u = 6/5

2018-01-29 02:53:47 UTC

2018-01-29 02:53:49 UTC

How do i get to 2/15?

2018-01-29 02:54:00 UTC

Multiply both sides by 5

2018-01-29 02:54:10 UTC

so on the left you have 45 u

2018-01-29 02:54:43 UTC

an the right the 5 on the bottom cancels out with the 5 on the top you just multiplied

2018-01-29 02:54:52 UTC

so 45u = 6

2018-01-29 02:55:03 UTC

then divide both sides by 45

2018-01-29 02:55:09 UTC

so u = 6/45

2018-01-29 02:55:24 UTC

6 is 2\*3, and 45 = 15\*3

2018-01-29 02:55:49 UTC

so u = (2\*3)/(15\*3)

2018-01-29 02:56:06 UTC

the 3 on top and bottom cross out

2018-01-29 02:56:11 UTC

so u = 2/15

2018-01-29 02:57:08 UTC

@Warren H oh you want it the way they did it in the picture? it is similar:

2018-01-29 02:57:17 UTC

starting from 9u = 6/5

2018-01-29 02:57:29 UTC

Your way seems easier. There's was confusing as heck

2018-01-29 02:57:54 UTC

How did you know 15 x 3? Instead of 9x5?

2018-01-29 02:58:03 UTC

I'm bad with fractions lol

2018-01-29 02:58:32 UTC

I'll do it closer to the way they did it:
starting from 9u = 6/5
divide both sides by 9, so u = (6/5) * (1/9)

2018-01-29 02:58:42 UTC

so u = 6/(5*9)

2018-01-29 02:58:59 UTC

now 6 is 2\*3 and 9 is 3\*3

2018-01-29 02:59:12 UTC

so u = (2\*3)/(5\*3\*3)
