The diameter of a ball bearing is to have an averageof 2.0 Cm. A random sampling of 10 bearings is selected every hour to check the diameters. The sample selected at 9 a.m gave the following measurements: 2.02, 2.04, 2.00, 1.98, 2.04, 2.04, 2.00, 2.02, 1.96. Calculate the t-va...

Determine whether {v1, v2, v3} is a basis for R3 v1 = [1] [-3] [1] v2 = [-3] [8] [4] v3 = [2] [-2] [2] Put the vectors as rows or columns in a matrix and perform Gaussian reduction to determne the row or column rank. In this case you should find that the rank is 3, therefore t...

Find equations for the asymptotes of the hyperbola x2/9 - y2/81 = 1 Rewrite the equation as (x/3)^2 - (y/9)^2 = 1 When both x and y are very large in absolute value, the "1" on the right is negligible in comparison, so y/9 approaches +/- x/3 The asymptotes are theref...
