just plug your points into x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 = 1 then solve for 1/a^2 and 1/b^2

The direction numbers for the last two points make the line from t=0..1 x = 2-t y = 0-t z = -1+4t So, backing up to z=3, -1+4t = -3 t = -1/2 a = x(-1/2) = 5/2 b = y(-1/2) = 1/2

**Calculus - Integrating**

The problem is that you did not have du in your integrals. You lacked the extra 2x dx in your integrands. u = x^2+1 du = 2x dx x = ?(u-1) So you have ?x/?(x^2+1) x dx = 1/2 ??(u-1)/u du which isn't really much better Try using a trig substitution: x = tan? x^2+1 = tan^2...

**College algebra**

If the half-life is k years, then after t years, (1/2)^(t/k) remains. Thus, to find k, solve (1/2)^(400/k) = 0.7 600 = 3/2 * 400, or 1.5 half-lives. So, the amount remaining after 600 megayears is (1/2)^(3/2 * 400/k) = (1/2)^(400/k)^(3/2) = 0.7^(3/2) = ?

**Math Functions Functions**

to shift right by h, replace x with (x-h) to shift up by k, replace y with (y-k) Thus, y-3 = (x-2)^2 shifts y=x^2 right 2 and up 3. Reflecting across an axis changes the sign of the other variable. Thus -y=x^2 reflects y=x^2 across the x-axis. Now see what you can do.
