easy way: r = (4/16) h = (1/4) h surface area = pi r^2 = pi (1/16) h^2 dV = surface area * dh dV = pi (1/16) h^2 dh DV/dt = (1/16) pi h^2 dh/dt hard way: V = (pi/3) r^2 h given again r^2 = (1/16) h^2 V = (pi/3)(1/16) h^3 dV/dh = (pi/16) h^2 again dV/dt = (pi/16) h^2 dh/dt

Those are both straight lines, graph them. x - 3 y= 10 goes through (0,-10/3) and (10,0) we are on that line and left of it 3 x - 2y = 5 goes through (0,-2.5 ) and (5/3 , 0) we are on that line and below it where do they hit? 3 x - 9 y = 30 3 x - 2 y = 5 ------------------ -7 ...

Sketch those lines slopes of +/- 1 center axis halfway between 1 and 5 so at y = 3 the lines cross at (2,3), so that is center of hyperbola so (x-2)^2/a^2 - (y-3)^2/b^2 = 1 slopes of asymptotes = +/- b/a so b = a (x-2)^2/a^2 - (y-3)^2/a^2 = 1 put that point in now (4-2)^2/a^2 ...

1. ok 2. We used to use a "diffraction grating" in the spectroscopy lab to get the clearest pattern.

Calc
Oh, sorry, I thought you meant just the length of that splitting fence.

Calc
.000000000000001 feet or perhaps the length of the width of a cow. :) The problem does not make much sense as stated. You could make the field extremely longs and not at all wide and divide it with a little fence in the middle the length of your very short ends.

algebra 1
well, do part B and you will have the answer to part A 100 - 1.9 = 98.1 percent so every time we go a meter, we multiply by .981 after x meters f(x) = 1700 * .981^x (Part B answer) which is exponential, not linear. (part A answer) It does not lose a constant "amount"...

Calculus: Determine the constants from function
dh/dx = 0 at critical points dh/dx = 3 x^2 + 2 b x = 0 x (3x+2b) = 0 so at (2,4), 3x+2b = 0 = 6 + 2b so b = -3 so h = x^3 -3 x^2 + d at x = 2, h = -4 -4 = 8 - 12 + d d = 0 so h = x^3 -3 x^2

Your talk of origins does not make a lot of sense to me since the origin is at (0,0) for all your problems. However perhaps your class is trying to work toward a vector version of this material where you specify a point and move out from there at a certain slope. In that case ...

If y = x + 8 the x axis intercept for that is when y = 0 0 = x + 8 x = -8 so (-8,0) the y axis intercept for that is when x = 0 which is b in y = m x + b so 8 so at (0, 8) --------------------------------------- I thought I did that other one too. This time you did the problem...

Math 221
Oh, I see what you are doing. given y = x + 4 we want parallel and through (-7,1) since y = 1 x + 4 has slope = m = 1 ANY parallel line ALSO has slope = 1 slope = 1 = (y-yp)/(x - x1) or 1 = ( y - 1 ) / (x - -7) 1 = (y-1) / (x+7) y-1 = x + 7 y = x + 8 I like my way better, but ...

Math 221
The origin is always at (0,0) However none of your lines go through the origin.

Math 221
yes I did not entirely follow all your steps though. The way I do it y = 1 x + 4 m = 1, so my new m must be 1 also if parallel ( I did not follow you here) point is (-7, 1) 1 = 1(-7) + b yes b = 8 y = x + 8

do not understand
I can not fathom your notation.

Math 221
assume you mean y = (-1/2) x + 1 slope m = -1/2 so slope of perpendicular = -1/m = 2 y = 2 x + b put in point 2 = 2(4) + b b = -6 so I agree y = 2 x - 6 You are getting these right but not the way I do them and I have not figured out what you are doing yet.
