ok ok ok I did one. Can you follow my logic and try the others? They're all done the same way. Decide the limits of integration, and then use discs: v = ∫πr^2 dx shells: v = ∫2πrh dx or dy, depending on how you want to integrate. Just decide on r and ...

The 19/3 is just a nuisance constant. Don't know why they stuffed it in there. I'll just do the integral with a constant k, and it will make things easier to read. y = kx(x-1) crosses th x-axis at x=0 and 1. So, using discs of area πr^2 and thickness dx, the ...

5 women can do the work of 4 men in an hour. So, the combined crew is the same as having 12 men. That means that one man can cut 1/60 of the field in an hour. Now you can see how many men it will take to do the job in 3 hours.

Still no good, but let's assume you have 3xy-6x+2y^2 = 0 Then 3y dx/dt + 3x dy/dt - 6 dx/dt + 4y dy/dt = 0 (3x+4y) dy/dt = (6-3y) dx/dt dy/dt = 3(2-y)(dx/dt)/(3x+4y) dy/dt = 3(5)(-6)/(6-12) = 15 But that's so only if my original equation is close.

Neither do I. You haven't asked a question. If you want dy/dt at (2,-3) then you just need to do 3y + 3x dy/dt - 6 + 4y dy/dt but you can't evaluate anything, because you have no equation. Why not try posting the entire question, not just part of it?

Calculus - Discontinuity
It is only removable if f(x) is defined to be the same as the limit value. If f(x) were 7 at x=3, then that would plug the hole. But since it is defined to be a different value, it creates a jump which cannot be joined to fill the hole.

jump. f(x) = 2x+1 everywhere except x=3. Since the limit from both sides is 7, but f(3)=6, there's no way to remove that break.
