**Pre Calculus**

you know that sin^2 x + cos^2 x = 1, so when you expand you have sin^2 x + 2 sinx cosx + cos^2 x recall also that sec^2 x = 1 + tan^2 x cos(pi/2-x) = sin(x) So, what do you think?

assuming you mean a parabola, recall that x^2 = 4py has axis x=0 directrix at y = -p latus rectum = 4p So, your equation is (x-2)^2 = 4(y-4) see http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=parabola+(x-2)%5E2+%3D+4(y-4)

First balance the equation. The product has a ratio of 1:3 for the atoms. So, 2Cl2 + 6Fl2 = 4ClF3 convert to moles of each reactant The one with the lesser no. of moles needed will limit the reaction. Then figure how many moles of product are produced, and go back to grams.

to find the absolute max/min, you need to check for local extrema in the interval. Then check f(x) at the ends of the interval to see whether they qualify as being more max/min. f'(x) = 2/∛(x-2) clearly that is never zero, so there are no internal local extrema. So, ...
