Anything relating to mathematical theory, demonstration, or application, including homework questions and whatnot, GOES IN HERE. There's way too many threads about this stuff >_<.

There's a math/science thread.

This thread is redundant.

I searched for a mathematics thread, nothing came up. Plus, having seen a thread within the last couple months reminds people to search for it when they have a question.

Don't worry about it, only the elite may get this answer.

I didn't know this thread existed.. I asked a math homework question the other day in a completely new thread.

My apologies.


It was just created tonight.

^Old. Try this


7+7=-2


*types in calculator*

*7+7=14*

Em..you appear to be mistaken.

...unless my calculator is broken

Root -1 = -1^1/2 = ((-1)^2)^1/4 = 1^1/4 = 1

There you have it: root -1 = 1


Cant see a direct flaw in the method...


BUT

Assume root(-1)=1

Then this implies (-1)=1^2=1

But this is a contradction as we assumed root(-1)=1.

Therefore root(-1)=/=1

EDIT: Miss read.
Hmm...emma think about this one...


There is a flaw in the last line: the other fourth roots of one weren't considered (-1, i, -i), and in this case, it's i and -i that are the correct roots, not -1 or 1.

Meh, my maths teacher showed me that one, I didn't see it either.
It's similar to this:
x=-2
x^2=4
x=2
-2=2

I have a question concerning Series and Sequences.

The first term, U1, is 2.

The common difference, d, is 5.

And the series, Sn, is 119.

How would you find n using (n/2)(2U1+(n-1)d)?

No, if it's stuff like X^2 = 16 it would be like.. x=4 , x = -4.

serious help plz

differentiate the scalar function

f(x)= (cos(X),X,-X) x (sec(X),-X^2,2X)

f'(x)=________________

(the small "x" in the middle is actually a dot in the problem)
You are now blinking manually
#27
That's a weird problem - never seen anything of that sort.

Taking the gradient of each would give you (-sin(x), 1, -1) and (sec(x)tan(x), -2x, 2) respectively. If you apply the product rule and do the dot product and get some definitive answer. I doubt that's the way to go though.

It's a weird problem. I've only seen it in 3-d, never in 1-d.

anytime you use squares you have two solutions, the square root of 4 is not 2, its plus or minus 2

isnt root (x) = ±x?

I think my math prof was once going on about when you use the square root operator you have to write that the absolute value of the sqrt() = whatever
I'm not sure anymore since that was like 3 math classes back

Oright guys, got a couple questions, admittedly easy, but i'm trying to work out what im doing wrong. So could you give me the answers in steps thanks

Expand the brackets and write each results as simply as possible:
(root3 + 7)^2

I know that the answer is 52+14 root3 but i dont see why...

(5+2 root3) (root5 - root2)

The answer to this one is 13, but again, im not sure why thats the answer :O

I'm stuck on this question in my math homework, so can anyone work this out or at least tell me how to work it out? I just can't get my head round it:

For a light metal beam of length L m, carrying a load at it's midpoint, the sag S cm varies as the cube of the length.

Given that S = 1.8 when L = 5, calculate the sag when the length L is 8.4 metres.

Cheers. I don't think it's worded badly, but I don't understand what it's asking.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.
