hi gAr

thanks for opening the topic!
I needed this.

I'm not sure i know how to do this one but it shoud be e^(1/6).

Hi all;

Wunderbar!

I think it is obvious that gAr has the Ramanujan touch! Even his typos are cool.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.
I am willing to wager that over 75% of the new words that appeared were nothing more than spelling errors that caught on.

Hi bobbym,

I'm nowhere near Ramanujan!
That typo wasn't deliberate, but glancing at that I too think it's cool!

Have you studied integration?

Okay.
Anyway, I'll tell briefly the concept of getting the answer.
Learn during your spare time. Very interesting!

Hi bobbym,

That's correct !

hi gAr

think i get it.
i have read something on integrals but thats only the basic stuff.For example i wouldn't know how to calculate ∫1/(a^2+x^2)dx

Hi anonimnystefy,

That's great!
But before going to integrals, know differentiation clearly.
Otherwise you'll have trouble remembering some results!

hi gAr

the only problem i have with diff. is i have difficulties when it comes to products and function composition.

### Re: Limits!

I always take logarithms and then take derivative for such problems!
Extra effort is during simplification, but easier than quotient rule.
