Re: One more question: line tangent to y=2 sin(2 x+(3pi/4)) at x=pi/8

bookwrm98 wrote:So pull out the 2, then do the derivative of sin(f(x)), and the final derivative equals 4cos(2x+(3pi/4)), then just find the line from there. Is that right?

You are correct.

Re: x^2: any relation between d(x^2)/dx = 2x and diff. between 1, 4, 9, 16, ..., ?

Is there a relation between the fact that the derivative of x^2 is 2x and that the difference between 1,4,9,16, ... is 3, 5, 7, 9, ...? And why is the difference always 2? Are you perhaps referring to what is discussed on this page starting a little past halfway down the page? One might find it use...

Four 1-inch balls stacked in a triangular pyramid, 3 on the bottom layer, one on top.... How high is this stack of balls? My best physical measurement is 1.81 with a surface plate, precision balls and a height gauge, but I can't mathematically back it up with the correct answer. Help? My first atte...

Re: Trouble Comprehending Concepts

If the particular text is proving problemmatic, one might consider using a supplementary text. Many have found Schaum's Outlines to be helpful. No-cost online resources are also available, such as this website or this PDF document. Which source might prove most effectual for you will likely be down ...

What is the meaning of "prime n", "prime 1", "(prime n) - 6", and "(prime 1) - n"?

Kindly please include, within your reply, a complete statement of your efforts thus far. Thank you.

Re: Solving Rational Inequalities: 1/4(x+2) <= -3/4(x-2)

1/4(x+2) <= -3/4(x-2) By adding +3/4(x-2) I simplify to (x+1)/(x^2 - 4) By what steps did you obtain this result? (Your formatting is ambiguous. Are the variable factors in the numerators or in the denominators?) a) if I solve the same inequality by cross multiplying.... By what logic have you &quo...
