this sentence doesnt look quite right it should look more like this In this situation, the function is f(x) = ? a= ?

calculus
well the question is from what im assuming is trying to find what f(x) is equal to. thats the last line of my question above. it also wants me to find what a is equal to. so to find slope i took the first derivative: y'= 1/ [2sqrt(x)] since x=64 makes this y'=1/(2*8) =...

i got a slope of 1/16 is that right?

calculus
its asking for f(x) and a im just trying to figure out how i would go about doing this. thanks for answering me.

calculus
To find the equation of a line, we need the slope of the line and a point on the line. Since we are requested to find the equation of the tangent line at the point (64, 8), we know that (64, 8) is a point on the line. So we just need to find its slope. The slope of a tangent l...

calculus
the program is telling me that is incorrect

calculus
would this just be infinity that they are looking for?

calculus
This problem has two parts but I can only see this so far. I probably over thinking..what is this asking for? How do I answer it? To evaluate lim x→ infinity sqrt(x^2 + 4) *first consider that as x becomes infinitely large x^2+4 -> __?__

math
if youre factoring this then the way you factor the quadratic equation looks like this: (3x^2+5x-2)=0 (3x-1)(x+2)=0 *notice how the the FOIL method works here. then to get x you would take each one and set it to 0. making this x=(1/3) and x=-2

calculus
oh okay i understand now! thank you so much for helping me. i really do appreciate it!

im pretty sure my first step would be to divide the numerator and denominator by e^x but i dont know where to go after that.

There is no Ka value that I see, so I looked it up hopefully on a reliable website. Could you make sure this is correct? 7.2*10^-4 so would this problem be: 7.4*10^-4= (x^2)/ (5.3*10^-2-x) On a calculator I get this number 0.006262587 then -log to get 2.20

Oh okay I thought you used Ka to solve these. That's what I'm doing wrong. I tried looking up the Ka for HF and multiplying it to .280 then take the -log of that number. The reason why I had to different numbers is because I found two different Ka's. If I can't...

I got the same answers for both, but I dont know how to get two pressures from these numbers

Chemistry
if that is correct then i got a value of 1.6 after plugging it in. This is the step that Im not sure what to do.
