tan(x) = 45/60 x = 36.87° As for the time of day, since you don't give any information on location, assume sunrise is at 6:00 am and sunset is at 6:00 pm. In that case, 180° of arc covers 12 hours. Use that to find how many hours after 6 am (or before 6 pm) it is.

If you have an explicit formula, coming up with a particular term is easy. If not, you have to use the recursion several times. #1. try (-2)^(n-1) #2. You can use the explicit formula, but showing how to handle it as a general arithmetic sequence is also nice. Naturally, any ...

Not quite sure what the "at 50m" means. Also, knowing the other stake is 65m from the end of the pond does no good. Now, if the two stakes are at the ends of the pond, and the given distances are as measured from the observation point, then the distance between the ...

Newton's method converges rapidly. If you don't have calculus, then there are other methods, such a bisection. f(x) = 6x + 12 + 2cosx Start off with the interval (-3,-1) and find f at the midpoint: -2 f(-2) = 6(-2)+12+2cos(-2) = -0.832 So, f=0 occurs in (-2,-1). f(-1.5...

Just a note on #3 even though ?x^2 dx = x^3/3 ?cos^2(x) dx is NOT cos^3(x)/3 cos^2(x) = 1/2 (1+cos(2x)) since cos(2x) = 2cos^2(x) - 1 Thus, ?cos^2(x) dx = x/2 + 1/4 sin(2x)
