Added information: If a cube can be obtained by rotating another cube, these two cubes are NOT considered to be different. So the other reply was right about what to assume. Thanks for that. My 27 is wrong. How do you know? What was your reasoning? My reasoning would start by doing one half (or &qu...

Hey guys... i need help with the following functions.. Do you maybe mean "with solving the following equation over the following interval"? 3 tan 2x + sin 2x = 0 between 0 and 180 What I got is: sin 2x (3 - cos 2x) = 0 How did you get this? It doesn't have the same solution or graph: http...

find the equation of the normal line to the curve y=2x/(x^2+1) at a point (3;0,6) and also that of the tangent. Calculus: What did you get for the derivative of y? Algebra: What did you get when you plugged x = 3 into the derivative? So what is the slope at x = 3? Using this slope and the point the...

Coverct to rectanguala a+bi z = e^(3-i pi/2) Exponential form (starting about 2/3 of the way down here ) looks like: . . . z\, =\, r\, e^{i\theta} Use rules of exponents to convert your right-hand side expression into the normal format: . . . e^{3\, -\, \frac{i\,\pi}{2}} \, =\, e^3\, e^{-\frac{i\,\...

find the area of a square if it is inscribed in a circle in which one arc intercepted by a side of the square has length 12pi. Draw the square. Draw the circle inside. Draw horizontal and vertical lines through the center that split the square into four equal smaller squares. Label one of the small...

I get the wrong answer for 5 = 1/3(-2 + b) The way it's written means 5 = 1/[3(-2 + b)]. But I think you mean 5 = (1/3)(-2 + b). Is this right? I get b = 17 for the answer. But the book works it and comes up with an answer b = 17/3 You can check the answers by plugging them back into the original e...
