wolframalpha.com is very easy to use. Just type in your function, and it will show the graph. For example, http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=4sin(3t)%2B2

almost. If the max is 12 and the min is -6 then the midpoint is at (12-6)/2 = 3 So, f(x)=9sin(6?x)+3 your choice has max = -6+9 = 3 min = -6-9 = -15

**C++ programming**

you really expect someone to do this whole thing for you? How about you pick some piece of it that causes trouble, and show some ideas you have so far. I'd bet that there are code samples online for just about any part of it that you can break out.

**calculus**

kind of tricky, eh? Let x = e^u. Then u = lnx du = 1/x dx, so dx = x du = e^u du Now the integral is ? sin(5lnx) dx = ? sin(5u) e^u du = ? e^u sin(5u) du and you can apply your formula.

oops. My answer was the amount earned in the 39th week. To find how much he has earned during the whole 39 weeks, use the sum formula: S39 = 39/2 (2*135 + 38*5) = 8970

**calculus**

the slope is dy/dx = (dy/dt)/(dx/dt) = (sint + tcost)/(cost - t sint) y'(?) = (0-?)/(-1-0) = ? at t=?, x=-? and y=0 so, using the point slope form of the line, y = ?(x+?)

well, you know the slope on one side is 1.4 and the slope on the other side is -1.4 You have the point (12,1.2) so the region has two lines for its boundary: y = 1.4(x-12)+1.2 = -15.6+1.4x y = -1.4(x-12)+1.2 = 18-1.4x Type in the functions at wolframalpha.com and you can see ...

Well, clearly you did not bother to evaluate the integral yourself. I made a typo, and the answer is 864?/35 instead. Just to check, we can apply the theorem of Pappus. The area of the triangular region is (1/2)(6/5)(12/7) = 36/35 The centroid is at x=12, so the distance ...

Since LM and KN are parallel, alternate interior angles ?LKM and ?LMK are congruent. So, ?LKM is isosceles. That means that KL=LM. So, since LM:KN=8:9, we can say that LM=8x and KN=9x. That means that KL=MN=8x, and thus 8x+9x+8x+8x = 132 33x = 132 x = 4 The legs KL and MN are ...

no, y is on a bearing of 60° from x. The man travels on a heading of 60° Draw a diagram. In ?XYZ, you have angles X = 30° Y = 45° Z = 105° so, using the law of sines, y/sin30° = 200/sin105° = z/sin105°
