 Question 381454: i need your help to this problem. can you help me?here's the prob. A man is at a point A on the bank of a straight river. he can row in a still water at a rate which is 20 per cent faster than he can walk. if he rows downstream to a point B, which is 4 mi. below A and on the same side of the river, and then walks, in a direction which is perpendicular to the river, to a point C, 3mi. from B, it takes him the same amount of time that it thus to walk straight from A to c. if he walks back from C to B and then rows upstream to A, the return trip takes him an hour and 36min. longer. find his rate of walking, his rate of rowing in still water, and the rate of the current of the river.

 Question 381641: Please Help, Use the chain rule of partial differentiation to find df/dt in terms of t where f(x, y) = e^(2x-3y) and x = t^2, y = 1/t. Check the result by direct substitution for x and y in f(x, y), followed by ordinary differentiation with respect to t. Hence show that when t = 1, df/dt = 7/e.

 Question 382523: Hello, My instructions were to "Graph the quadratic function. Label the vertex and axis of symmetry. " However, i dont understand this problem: I tried using the -b/2a formula , and i got the answer 3. Then i made a t-chart, to get other points to make my parabola, but the numbers were very off, (one of my 'y' coordinates came out to 32) . I dont think i did it right, and im not good at algebra what so ever, so i am absolutely positive i got it all wrong. Thank you in advance, Jackie Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)
