hey i was just wondering if any1 could give me a formal definition of f(n) is O(n) and what a graph illustrating it mite look like, its a question on a sample exam paper nd theirs no soloution for it

cool i think ive found somethin new 2 distract me from my studies. in says on wikipedia dat cryptozoology also covers animals existin outside der natural habitat. would that include de panter thats supposed to be living around my area. or is it mainly interested in creatures such as big foot

hi thavamaran...wat enginnerin are you specialised in

#10 Re: Coder's Corner » Naming Conventions » 2009-05-15 02:18:41

my lecturer always says give it a name that means something because it will be easier to understand when reading over, in functions the first letter in the word should be in lower case but after that to have them startin with an upper case letter e.g getLengthOfArray(). he also believes that member data should start with m_ eg m_Data

ive bn learnin c++ 4 de last 2 years (and have an exam in it in 2 days so prob shud get off the internet) but i found that while c++ does teach u alot and stuff it can b over complicated in some parts specially wen it comes to pointers and in those cases java can be better. i also find microsoft visual studios good because their compiler is built in and it is very user friendly specially if your doing more than one file projects

#13 Help Me ! » vector equation of the line tangent to the graph » 2009-05-15 00:22:13

Replies: 0

hey im just goin through old tutorials in preperation for my exam and came across this question

Find the vector equation of the line tangent to the graph of r(t) at the point P0(0,−1, 1/4 ) on the curve.

my lecturer gave this soloution

Solution: The point P0(0,−1, 1/4 ) on the curve corresponds to t = 1. We find
r0 = r(1) = −j +1/4k , v0 =dr/dt(1) = i − j +1/2k .

Thus the tangent line equation is
r = r0 + (t − 1) v0 = (t − 1) i − t j +1/2(t −1/2) k .

i get all of it except the bit where he finds v0 and was wondering if some1 could explain it to me

its more helpful wen ur doin it to find roots of eqn its still pretty stupid tho. and your right the maths curriculum has a lot to be answered for i no it has to be thought but it could be thought better

#15 Re: Introductions » Hi » 2009-05-13 10:44:56

oh i thought it was maybe just somethin odd we do coz it really is kinda pointless

#16 Re: Introductions » Hi » 2009-05-13 10:36:35

i think it was wen u devided by a number bigger than 12
its for wen your in primary school its really long and stupid
15√ 165                  15 doesnt go into 1 so u carry it across to the 6 makin 16
       16                    15 goes in to 16 once so 1 goes on the top line and ur left with 1 and u bring down the 5 to make 15
         15                  15 goes into 15 once so you put one on the top line and ders no remainder so eleven is ur answer

#17 Re: Introductions » Hi » 2009-05-13 10:21:43

hi tanx every1. wow 11 i could barely do long devision wen i was fact i still find it a little confusin hmm i doubt ill b of much help but i like de site i love de jokes and puzzle page der fun big_smile
