**Calculus check**

Hmm... Mean value says that (f(x2)-f(x1))/(x2-x1) = f(x0) where x0∈[x1,x2] (f(x2)-f(x1))/(x2-x1) = (5-7)/2 = -1 f'(x)=-3/x^2 f'(sqrt(3))=-3/3=-1, Yes, C is correct.

**Calculus check revised.**

Yes, B is correct, again using chain rule.

**Calculus check**

Yes, B is correct. f'(x) d(sin^2(3-x))/dx Apply chain rule =2sin(3-x) dsin(3-x)/dx =2sin(3-x)cos(3-x)d(3-x)/dx =-2sin(3-x)cos(3-x) Then calculate f'(0) from above.

**Math**

log(y-1)=-log(y-9) using the property of logarithms, log(x) = -log(1/x), then log(y-1)=log(1/(y-9)) take anti-log on both sides, y-1 = 1/(y-9) then solve for quadratic in y after cross-multiplication.

**Statistics**

What do you do when you have the third object to be placed and supposed to place in a box already filled with two object? You would skip that case. How many of these cases do we have?

**Statistics**

Assuming the 10 boxes are distinguishable or ordered. There are 10 ways to put the first item, 10 for the second, and 10 for the third. So by the multiplication rule, there are 10^3 ways to place the three objects.

**math**

If the y-coordinate of P is missing, you need to supply it. If it is not given, then use w to complete the problem. P(5,w),Q(-1,2), Mid-point: M((5-1)/2, (w+2)/2)=(Mx,My) Slope of PQ: m=(2-w)/(-1-5) slope of perpendicular: m'=-(-1-5)/(2-w)=6/(2-w) Perpendicular bisector ...

**math**

Rule for translation: (x,y)-> (x+h, y+k) Solve for h,k from (-2,3)->(10,10) (a) hence find the image Q' of Q. (b) if mp-nq=(-12,9), this means m(-2,3)-n(1,3)=(-12,9) Split into individual equations for x and y to get -2m-n = -12 3m-3n = 9 Solve for m,n.

Vf^2-Vi^2=2aS a=acceleration/deceleration Vf=final velocity = 0 Vi=initial velocity = 50 or 100 S=distance travelled. By proportion, double the initial velocity, will quadruple the stopping distance, with the same Vf and a.
