Thanks for reply. Sorry for confusion. Second and II DC are same and only mean second diff. coeff. or derivative d^2y/dx^2. Nr is numerator and A is dy/dx as shown as equation(A)in the first line of answer. What I meant was that for calculating second DC we have to apply ...

Q: If y=sinx/(1+tanx), find value of x not greater than pi, corresponding to maxima or minima value of y. I have proceeded thus- Equating dy/dx=0 we get{ (1+tanx)cosx-sinx.sec^2 x}/(1+tanx)^2=0……..(A) Or cosx+sinx=sinx.sec^2 x or cosx= sinx.sec^2-sinx Or cosx=sinx....

Find the area cut off by x+y=3 from xy=2. I have proceeded as under: y=x/2. Substituting this value we get x+x/2=3 Or x+x/2-3=0 Or x^2-3x+2=0 Or (x-1)(x-2)=0, hence x=1 and x=2 are the points of intersection of the curve xy=2 and the line x+y=3. Area under curve above X axis ...

Differentiate cost function and equate it to 0, i.e. 0.1(2x)-1.2=0 or x=1.2/0.2=6; Second derivative is0.2which is+ve hence it corresponds to minimum cost level. Hence x=6,i.e. 600 bikes. Cost/bike for 600 bikes will be =0.1x36-1.2x6+4.993=1.393 hunderd $. For 590 and 610 ...

That will be sec^2 per m but that is most unlikely to be required as generally time is taken as independent variable and variations are measured per unit time i.e. time rate of variation.
