Test for symmetry with repsect to Q=pi/2, the polar axis, and the pole. r=16cos 3Q r=16cos(3pi/3 + 3h) = 16(cos3pi/2 3h- sin 3pi/2 sin h) cos 3pi/2 = 0 sin 3pi/2 = -1 Not symmetrical My teacher said that this was wrong!Why?

Use a graphing utility to graph the function. Then use the trace or table feature to identify the limit. lim 5/x-2 x-->2 I know I posted this question before but I am still having a hard time doing this. I pressed the y= button and typed the normal equation in: 5/x-2. Is ...

Find the center, vertices, foci, and eccentricity of the ellipse. 9x^2 + 4y^2 - 36x + 8y + 31 = 0 I know the center is (2,-1) For the vertices I had (3,-1)(1,-1) and the foci (3.8,-1)(.20,-1) and e = 1.80 but I think these are wrong.
