check my homeworkI have two homework problems that I'm not sure I got right. If someone could tell me if my answer is correct that would be great. If its not right, i'll try to solve it again. #2 20060129 08:50:46
Re: check my homeworkThe first answer is fine. Similarly, between (6, 13) and (2, 11), there is a gradient of They have the same gradient and so are parallel. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #3 20060129 09:23:39

Re: check my homework
I see my mistake. I did 75 and 1+3 to get 2/2 and 1113 and 2+6 to get 2/4. I'll fix it. Thanks. #6 20060129 10:55:16
Re: check my homework
A gradient is just the slope of a line. Well, it's actually the slope of a curve at a given point, but it's most commonly applied to lines. It's basically an less technical way of saying dy/dx. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
