Quickies #1 Math

1. bobbym and his neighbor is having a competition on who can type faster with a sharper head
bobbym's speed is : x^3 - 2x
his neighbor's speed: 3x^2
Find the time in seconds, x, where bobbym will overcome(type more) than his neighbor
2. Find the minimum value where x is part of the real numbers
gif.latex?2%5Ex+3%5Ex+4%5Ex-x%5E3+10
3. The sum of the roots of the equation 2x^2+4x-6 minus the product of the roots are..
4. Calculate the difference in temperature between the water at the top and bottom of a water fall 100 m high. Specific heat capacity of water is 4200 J/kg k.(consider g=9.8).
5.An elevator starts from rest with a constant upward acceleration. It moves 2 m in the first 0.6 s. bobbym is holding a 300 kg package by a vertical string. The tension in the string during acceleration is (Take g = 9.8 m/s2)


The integral of hope is reality.

Hi;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: Quickies #1 Math

Hi;

Lots of times I have to figure which answer I think the OP wants. I assumed he wanted the point where my speed overtook and passed the speed of the other guy with a sharpened head.

Re: Quickies #1 Math

The nth term of a sequence is defined as
gif.latex?%28-1%29%5En-%28-1%29%5E%7Bn+1%7D-%28-1%29%5E%7Bn+2%7D......
What is the sum of the first 2009 terms, i.e, n = 2009.
