geometry problems1. For some positive real number r, the line x + y = r is tangent to the circle x^2 + y^2 = r. Find r. Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #3 20130817 03:12:01
Re: geometry problemsFor no. 3 its not 20/3, but 6 because i tried it yesterday and got it correct Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #4 20130817 03:26:15
Re: geometry problemsWho said it was 20 / 3? 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. #5 20130818 02:42:47
Re: geometry problemssorry, i think i saw another problem's answer Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #6 20130818 02:49:33
