E) None of the above
Solution for the last Math Madness question; 3/25/19: A) t = 1/16
Start by doing what is given, substitute in the 4 and see what you have to work with.
t = 4-a
Now, test each answer to see if any can be true. To do this, you must remember the rules of exponents. They are:
After reviewing these rules, the only one that would fit with the rules would be answer A.
If t = 4-a ; then according to the rules t = 1/4a
Then, using a little imagination, we can theoretically substitute a = 2 resulting in the equation t = 1/42; which equals 1/16. So, theoretically t could equal 1/16 if a equals 2.
