The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't.

If we have the curve

and the points A(8,8+2√ (2)), B(8,0) and C(0,0) see the diagram.

We need to have two triangles put under the curve and bounded by the x axis, y axis and x = 8. The red and blue triangles are examples.

Where on the curve do we need to place D so that the triangles have equal area? Just one other thing, we need avery accurate answer for D's coordinates. It must be accurate to 20 decimal places or more.

The same which is as good as you can expect. Are you celebrating the festival?

Haven't seen you in a while! How have you been?

What kind of courses are you taking?

New problem:

There are 4 circles that overlap each other.
Circle A has a center at (4, 2.3) and a radius of 1.

Circle B has a center at ( 6.4 , 1.25) and a radius of 2.

Circle C has a center at (10 , 4.5) and a radius of 3.

Circle D has a center at (4 , 7.25) and a radius of 4.

There is a small area in the middle of the 4 circles that none of them cover. What is that area?

Hi anonimnystefy,

I'm fine, how are you?
The course is for master's degree.

Hi bobbym,

Thanks, the journey is bumpy at present, hope I can do well !
