You realize I'm a terrible Calculus student? I don't understand the concepts that the other students can pick up on right away. I don't really get why you did any of what you did, and there aren't any examples like this one in our book for me to look back on.

Calculus (check my work)
Okay, I really don't understand how you did any of that. What's the point of half of it? I tried to do some of what you did, but I got different numbers for my answers.

Also, it says to estimate the maximum allowable percent error in measuring the circumference if the error in computing the area cannot exceed 3%. How do I do this?

The measurement of the circumference of a circle is found to be 64 centimeters, with a possible error of 0.9 centimeter. Approximate the percent error in computing the area of the circle. MY ANSWER 8.83%

Calculus (check my answer)
No, this is a different part of that same problem. It asks for the surface area this time, not volume.

Calculus (check my answer)
The measurement of the edge of a cube is found to be 15 inches, with a possible error of 0.03 inch. Use differentials to approximate the maximum possible propagated error in computing the surface area of the cube. I got 5.4 inches squared. Is this right?
