Diffrentiation and integration PLEASE HELPI have this mathematics question that is really giving me a headache....... #2 20051210 12:33:52
Re: Diffrentiation and integration PLEASE HELPThe first one is 1.165561185 and then my little solar calculator couldn't go any further. It took six iterations using Newton's Method. #3 20051210 16:29:54
Re: Diffrentiation and integration PLEASE HELPi was working on problem one in degree mode and my calculator kept spitting out positiive results even for very large values of x. then i switched over to radian mode and it worked! sometimes a lil trial and error will get you on the right track! #4 20051210 23:18:36
Re: Diffrentiation and integration PLEASE HELPTo show that there is a root between 1.1 and 1.2, just find the values of the functions at each of those points and show that there is a change of sign. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20051211 11:23:54
Re: Diffrentiation and integration PLEASE HELPJust don't forget to also state the function is continuous from [1.1, 1.2]. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #6 20051212 09:39:21
Re: Diffrentiation and integration PLEASE HELPTrue. That method wouldn't work if the range had a number of the form (n+0.5)π in it, because the sign changes at every point with that form, but they are not roots. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
