DifferentiationHow do you differentiate the following: 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #3 20130410 00:34:43
Re: DifferentiationI am a complete beginner 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #4 20130410 00:52:30
Re: DifferentiationTry: Quotient Formula: D(f/g) = (g*Df  f*Dg)/(g²) where f(x)=sqrt(1x²)^(½) and g(x) = 1x Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional). LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make. #5 20130410 02:10:46
Re: DifferentiationHm 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: DifferentiationI didn't. I just found how to do it. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: DifferentiationOkay, it will be tedious at first but easier later. Post if you get stuck. 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.
