**Calculus**

f(x)=sqrt(x^3+2) We can also rewrite this as, f(x) = (x^3 + 2)^(1/2) Then we can use chain rule, f'(x) = (1/2)*(3x^2)*(x^3 + 2)^(-1/2) Finally, the second derivative is f''(x) = (3/2)(2x)(x^3 + 2)^(-1/2) + (3/2)(x^2)(3x^2)(-1/2)(x^3 + 2)^(-3/2) And simplify. Hope ...

Recall the Pythagorean theorem: c^2 = a^2 + b^2 where c is the hypotenuse (which is also the longest side of a right triangle) and a & b are the legs. Substitute each side lengths to the equation. Of course the longest side is c, and the remaining sides are a and b. If the set...

**Math check**

1. Actually it's B. Expanding, 2(x - 3) = 2x 2x - 6 = 2x -6 = 0 Note that if you get an answer like this (constant = zero), there is no solution. 2. It's D. (btw I don't know why you put question mark beside 3) Expanding, 3(y - 3) = 2y - 9 + y 3y - 9 = 3y - 9 or 0...

Recall that surface area of cone is SA = pi*r^2 + pi*r*s where r = radius s = slant height Substituting, SA = 3.14 * 15^2 + 3.14 * 15 * 11 SA = 706.5 + 518.1 SA = 1224.6 sq units Hope this helps :3

Hmm, the triangle seems impossible, because if you draw it, given the condition that AC = BC (thus it's an isosceles triangle), then angle ACB = 96, therefore BAC = 96 degrees also (since the sides opposite to the angles are equal). So if there are two angles which are 96...

**Mechanics**

Recall that Pressure is just Force over a unit Area, or P = F/A We are given the force (which is 220 N), therefore, we only need to find area. A = L*W A = 4*3 = 12 m Therefore, P = 220 / 12 P = 18.33 N/m^2 P = 18.33 Pa Hope this helps :3
