Function QuestionWhat is f(27) Last edited by lakeheadca (20100619 08:48:53) #2 20100619 09:31:16
Re: Function QuestionHi lakeheadca; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20100619 12:15:12
Re: Function QuestionThank you Bobby, #4 20100619 14:46:59
Re: Function QuestionHi lakeheadca; Draw a few more cycles of the curve yourself. You will see that 4 is the same as 0. 5 is the same as 1. 10 is the same as 2. After that you just have to line them up to see that 27 is in the same column as 3. How did you do with the area and perimeter problem? Were you able to finish where I left you off?

Re: Function Questionyou are a great help. very nice way to solve ... you made this problem amazingly simple. #6 20100620 03:16:30
Re: Function QuestionYour welcome. I didn't make it simple, it is simple. The only reason it is, is because I have seen it before. I still get them wrong now and then but I am not surprised by the problem. Now that you have seen it you will do much better next time. I guarantee it. In mathematics, you don't understand things.
