well, you have sec 2? = 3 cos 2? = 1/3 2? = 1.231 or 2?-1.231 so, divide those by 2, and then add ? to get all 4 solutions.

Mathematics - Limits
Hmmm. Using L'hospitals rule, we have the value as (a - 1/2 (1+x)^(-1/2))/2x (1/4 (1+x)^(-3/2)/2 -> 1/8 So, I don't see how we can assign a value to a, because the limit is 1/8 for any value of a. Am I missing something?

Type in your function here, and it will give you the roots and other info. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=-0.4x%5E2%2B8.3x%2B4.3 On this one, x^2+3x-10 = 0 you should have factored it: (x+5)(x-2) = 0 Then you would have seen that the roots are -5 and 2, rather than what ...

not knowing the prices is a bit of a hindrance. However, if the prices were x and y, and there were s seniors, then sx + y(205-s) = 1930 So, plug in your values for the ticket prices, and solve for s.

One more question Calculus
the acceleration graph is apparently a(t) = 10-t so, that gives us v(t) = 10t - t^2/2 + C v(0)=0, so C=0 so, now we have s(t) = 5t^2 - t^3/6 + C s(0) = 10, so C = 10 s(t) = 10 + 5t^2 - t^3/6 s(30) = 0 So, the final position is 10 ft behind the starting line. However, the total...
