What is the use of Calculus? How is it use in jobs? What jobs use Calculus? Calculus is used in engineering, economics, any physical science, and in business (e.g., actuary studies and statistics).

I am too embarassed to ask this Calculus (really pre-calculus) question in tutoring, because I know I should know. Is the inverse of f(x)=3x-1 actually f(x)=1/3x+1? How do I find it? What if it asks the same equation replaced with f to the -1 power (x)? I think I know how the ...

You have titled the post "algebra 2". Does that mean that you have done calculus, or should the solution be without calculus? We usually solve maximization problems by linear programming or calculus. However, this problem can also be solved by tabulation without ...

calculus - what is the derivative?
I find it hard to understand that somebody who is studying Calculus would ask this question, and I don't know where to begin to give you an answer. This is as basic as it can get in terms of first year Calculus. Did you walk into the wrong math class, and I am not being ...

that would be dy/dx = -8x - 17 I am somewhat bothered by your question. If you are studying Calculus, then you should have known the answer. If you are not taking Calculus, then the question does not belong. The type of problem you asked is fundamental to the study of Calculus.

Are you doing pre-calculus or calculus? In calculus, the maximum is obtained by setting f'(t)=derivative with respect to t = 0 and solving for t. In pre-calculus, you can transform the expression by completing the squares. Ax² + Bx + C =A(x²+ (B/A)x + C/A...

You do not need Calculus for this question, since this results in a trapezoid. The two parallel sides have lengths of 2 and 18 and the distance between them is 2 Area = 2(2+18)/2 = 20 if you insist on Calculus Area = [integral](8x+2)dx from 0 to 2 = |4x^2 + 2x| from 0 to 2 = ...

If you have done functions before calculus as most students do, you can rewrite the equation in the standard form: f(x)=a(x-h)+k where the vertex is found at (h,k) or f(x)=-(3/4)(x-2)²+3 where the vertex is found at (2,3). Confirm by Calculus: f(x)=3x-3/4x^2 f'(x...
