You are welcome!

This question is not very straight forward. It is considered as a challenging E Math question.

Please be reminded that step-by-step working is expected if you want to score full marks (including all method marks) for it.

Cheers!

Hi,

12 m/s^2 and m/s have different units. Cannot do conversion directly.

Cheers

Re: O-Level Elementary Math

The answer is x+y=1. But I don't know how to get the answer.

Since the equation has EVEN power index, therefore, it is always positive.

In order to have the sum of (x+4)^50 + (y-5)^100 = 0,
Therefore,
(x+4)^50 = 0 and (y-5)^100 = 0
Hence,
x = -4 and y = 5

Therefore x + y = 1.
