Consider the equation x^2+3y^2+xy=3. a) Write an expression for the slope of the curve at any point (x,y). The answer is: dy/dx = (-2x-y)/(6y+x) b) Find the equation of the normal line to the curve at the point (0,1). The answer is: y-1=6x c) What is d^2y/dx^2 at (0,1)? The answer is: -11/36 d) If (...

yeah i got it a while ago. i was confused because i'm used to seeing y instead of f(x) so it looked out of placeFactor out the 3 from the integral. Divide through.How did you get 1?

. . . . .

I have no idea how to go about doing this. The fraction in the denominator is what's confusing me. I tried U-Substitution to no avail.

Given: . . . . . \displaystyle{\int_0^{50}\, 3\, f(x)\, dx\, =\, 3,\, \int_2^{50}\, f(x)\, dx\, =\, -4} Determine: . . . . . \displaystyle{\int_0^2\, f(x)\, dx} What does the 3 mean the problem? I would take it as meaning "three times the functional value", so there should be a "times" symbol betwe...

so i'm starting my summer assignment for ap calc (early right?) and i need some refreshing lol:

......4

--------

1+4t^2

from 0 to 1/2

(ignore the periods, just to get it in the middle)

alright im onto something. im just wondering if you know how to find the distance between 2 points with the slope, is there a formula? is it even possible to find the distance with only a slope...?haha

im sorry this is correct i promise: we have to try and find the length of the best fit for the curve around the back using the givens. this is where its trig (and not calc)
