Re: how to differente this?They are asking you to differentiate 1/(1p) with respect to p. Last edited by irspow (20060115 03:36:06) #3 20060115 04:03:40
Re: how to differente this?thanks thats very helpful. #5 20060115 04:43:36
Re: how to differente this?lol nice rhyme but i have no idea what you're talking about! i thought i just needed to know if the ^2 in the denominator goes after the d or after the variable. whats hi d and low d? #6 20060115 04:56:43
Re: how to differente this?I think Ricky's rhyme is referring to the quotient formula that irspow posted earlier. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #7 20060115 05:07:11
Re: how to differente this?Ah, sorry, should have probably been clearer. "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..." #9 20060115 10:27:20
Re: how to differente this?Surely the coefficient of p doesn't matter? Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #10 20060115 10:51:57
Re: how to differente this?You do have f(x)/g(x), but you also have k/g(x). Like I said, either way works. You could also multiply them: "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..." #13 20060116 02:25:59
Re: how to differente this?
thats the bit i dont get though. #14 20060116 02:45:36
Re: how to differente this?The chain rule strikes again! "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..."
