differences: -1/3, 1, -3 ratios: 0, ∞, -2 since neither is constant, it is neither an A.P. or a G.P. So, how to figure the next terms? Note that the differences form a G.P., with the next terms 9,-27,81 Adding those to -2, we get 7,-20,61, or choice (A)

tan10x = 2tan5x/(1-tan^2(5x)) so, 2tan(5x)/(1-tan^2(5x)) = 1/tan(5x) 2tan^2(5x) = 1-tan^2(5x) 3tan^2(5x) = 1 tan 5x = ±1/√3 Now use that to get your reference angles and produce as many solutions as your domain requires.

it has an inverse, since f^-1(x) = ∛(x-8) + 2 Also, you know that g(x) = x^3 is 1-to-1, and f(x) is just g(x) shifted by (2,8). More formally f(x) is one-to-one if f(a) = f(b) means that a = b so, let's say that f(a) = f(b) That means that f(a) = f(b) (a-2)^3+8 = (b-...
