**Algebra**

Right triangle ABC has the right angle at C. Angle B is 18.5° and side a is 17.9 centimeters.Find the length of the hypotenuse.

**Trig**

just use the Pythagorean Theorem: ?(54^2-46^2) = ?800 = ?(400*2) = 20?2 = 28.3

**Trig**

yes. check that 8^2+15^2 = 17^2

**calculus**

you have two answers. One will be greater than 8, so it is useless. So, use (10-2?7)/3 = 1.57 max v = 64(10+7?7)/27

**calculus**

just plug and chug: s = ?[0,2?] ?(x'^2 + y'^2) d? Using symmetry, we can take just one arc, and s = 4?[0,?/2] ?((-54cos^2?sin?)^2 + (54sin^2?cos?)^2) d? this simplifies quite nicely

**Math (Integrals) (Using given method)**

yes. so you have 1/2 ?sin2x dx let u = 2x, du=2dx and you have 1/4 ?sinu du = -1/4 cosu = -1/4 cos(2x) + C

**calculus**

?[0,4] ?(1+y'^2) dx = ?[0,4] ?(1+(12x^2+3)^2) dx

I suspect a typo. No way is a wire going to increase in length by a factor of 10. Also, your coefficient is lacking some units. In any case, if it grows by 16.66*10^-6 cm for each °C, just divide the length increase by that number.

Let's say the initial rate is 6% In that case, the value after 44 years will be [4000(1+.06/2)^(2*22)](1+.0628/4)^(4*22) = 57,843.92 If the initial rate is not 6%, just change it in the expression above and re-evaluate.

**Calculus**

well, just plug in x=4! (f(4)-5)/(4-2) = 1 f(4)-5 = 2 f(4) = 7 In the absence of anything to indicate that f(x) is not continuous, I assume that lim(x->4) f(x) = f(4)

Not so. Just expand the expression 5+2(r+7) = 5+2r+14 = 2r+16 2+5(r+7) = 2+5r+35 = 5r+35 Try that with the other pairs, and see which comes out with both sides the same.

you are correct that there are 4 lights. But that means one at each end, and two in the middle. There are only three spaces between lights, of 2m each. It's always better to draw a diagram, and this would have been clear.

Consider g(x) = f(x)-x g(0) = f(0)-0 >= 0 g(1) = f(1)-1 <= 0 since g is continuous, either g(1)=0 or g(1) < 0. If g(1) < 0, the Intermediate Value Theorem tells us that at some point c in the interval, g(x) = 0

it would be e^(sin x^2)*2x - e^(cosx) * (-sinx) This is just the chain rule via the back door. If F(t) = ?f(t) dt then ?[u,v] f(t) dt = F(v) - F(u) Now take the derivative, remembering the chain rule.
