That is not me.

What does the notation  E ∘ O mean?

The composition of f(x) and g(x) is f(g(x)). In other words, compositions are evaluated by plugging the second function listed into the first function listed.  Note as well that order is important here.  Interchanging the order will usually result in a different answer.

Hi,

All are correct!

This was a nice problem when I first solved it a couple of years/months ago, but I remember that when I drew the picture I had the wrong answer.

Re: Easy Problems

Hi zetafunc;

That is correct!

Hi Stefy;
I think you perhaps didn't understand the problem, because we are getting different answers and mine agrees with zetafunc's.

I'm searching for a good problem from my database, but I am mostly finding routine ones (I forgot to sort routine and difficult problems on the set of problems I am looking at).

Here is a problem with OK difficulty:
6. A right circular cone is inscribed inside a larger right circular cone with a volume of 180 cm^3. The axes of the cones coincide and the vertex of the inner cone touches the center of the base of the outer cone. Find the ratio of the heights of the cones that maximizes the inner cone volume.
