Re: THINK + RETHINK = REFLECT (each letter stands for a number)  TOPIC_SOLVED

I need to find the numbers for each letter in "THINK + RETHINK = REFLECT". Bear in mind that there may be more than one solution, as some numbers may swap places without affecting any other numbers. This can occur when you have two sets of adjacent (side-by-side) columns that behave the s...

Re: find normal and overtime rates of pay for carpenter  TOPIC_SOLVED

If I times the second one by 3, I get 81 normal hours and 9 overtime hours for $189. This is 60 more normal hours and $120 more dollars, for $2 for each normal hour. Working backwards, I get 69 - 21*2 = 27, so each overtime hour is $3. This answer works, but it seems too easy. Am I doing this wrong...

Re: Help please  TOPIC_SOLVED

This site has lots of useful information on how to solve such problems in the Beginning Algebra Topics section. In particular, Solving Linear Equations Slope of a Straight Line Slope and y-intercept Intercepts Have a read through those and hopefully things will be a little clearer. DAiv

Re: solve 3x-6y=18 for y; show (2,4) soln for 3x+4y=22; slopes &  TOPIC_SOLVED

Q1. Given the following equation, 3x – 6y = 18; solve for y. Looks good and the working is well laid out and easy to follow. :D Be careful, though, when writing variables to make sure that if you start with a lower case variable, it remains lower case throughout. For example, y does not become Y, s...

Re: Limit approaching infinity with an unknown in the exponent  TOPIC_SOLVED

Find the limit, as x approaches infinity, of (1+(2/x)) x This is a problem from Temple University's 'Calculus on the Web' site, I am trying to get re-acquainted with first-semester Calculus as I will begin taking Calc II in a month from now. I can't think of how to bring that x down. Logs? Do you n...

Re: Limit approaching infinity with an unknown in the exponent  TOPIC_SOLVED

That's not helping me dave. It looks good intuitively but 1 is not a valid answer. I repeat, one raised to infinity is considered an indeterminate form. You're right, it's not a simple solution. Q. Find \lim_{x\to\infty}\left(1+\frac2x\right)^x There are at least two ways of solving this, a...

Re: Limit approaching infinity with an unknown in the exponent  TOPIC_SOLVED

I follow the L'Hopital's Rule method of solving this problem, but where did you get the " \lim_{n\to\infty}\left(1+\frac1n\right)^n = e " from? This is a given identity thinger I should be familiar with? I haven't come across it, please let me know the deal. This is just one of ma...
