math problems need help!!1) Find the length of the tangent from the point (12,0) to the circle x^2+y^2=4 (^means exponent) #2 20051129 14:17:59
Re: math problems need help!!1) I am not certain I am understanding this problem correctly, but here goes... The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution. Bertrand Russell #3 20051129 21:48:27
Re: math problems need help!!Good post, darthradius. I wouldn't have seen how to do 1) like that. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20051130 00:09:35

Re: math problems need help!!The three points of the triangle are (0,0), (12,0) and another one somewhere on the circle. As (0,0) is the origin, the line from (0,0) to the point on the circle would be a radius. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #6 20051130 01:24:20
Re: math problems need help!!oh my...you are absolutely right...I oversimplified the problem...whoops! The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution. Bertrand Russell #7 20051205 11:53:41
Re: math problems need help!!what would the awnser be to 7(6  y) = 3(y2) #8 20051206 02:05:58
Re: math problems need help!!Multiply out of brackets: 42  7y = 3y + 6 Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #9 20060515 07:40:20
Re: math problems need help!!ABC is a rightangled triangle, right angled at A and AD is the altitude on Last edited by Mozartmoses (20060515 07:41:23)
