 Miscellaneous_Word_Problems/203188: How many points in the first quadrant satisfy both of the following conditions: (i) the x and y coordinates are positive integers and (ii) x + y ≤ 5?1 solutions Answer 153301 by jim_thompson5910(28595)   on 2009-07-15 17:32:35 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Since "x" and "y" are both positive integers (ie positive whole numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, etc...) just ask yourself: "what two numbers add to another number that is either less than or equal to 5?" So for instance, 2+2=4 which is less than or equal to 5. Also, 1+2=3 which is also less than or equal to 5. Furthermore, 2+3=5 which is less than or equal to 5. These values can be thought of as the ordered pairs (2,2), (1,2), and (2,3) Here are all of the possible ordered pairs (0, 0), (0, 1), (0, 2), (0, 3), (0, 4), (0, 5), (1, 0), (1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (2, 0), (2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (3, 0), (3, 1), (3, 2), (4, 0), (4, 1), (5, 0) So for example, the ordered pair (1,4) means that 1+4=5 which is less than or equal to 5.
 Square-cubic-other-roots/203195: I need help rationalizing.... 9 times the cubic root 2 over/divided by the cubic root 5 minus cubic root 2. Please help! Soory my keyboard will not allow me to type the equation. 1 solutions Answer 153300 by jim_thompson5910(28595)   on 2009-07-15 17:23:25 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given expression. Let and Replace each with "x" and each with "y" Now this is where you have to get a bit creative. It's very helpful to remember that . Why is this important? Because if you cube a cube root, they will both cancel out (leaving the stuff inside as a remainder). So if we multiply both numerator and denominator by , we get: Use the identity given above Plug in and Cube the cube roots (to eliminate them) Subtract Reduce Combine the roots. Multiply Use the identity Square 5 to get 25 and square 2 to get 4 Distribute Combine the roots. Multiply ================================================================== Answer: So This can be verified (as I have verified it myself) with a calculator.
 Trigonometry-basics/203109: i was wondering how you do these problems: The directions are to find the exact value of each expression. 6 cos 3π/4+ 2tan(-π/3) and sec ( -π/3)- cot (-5π/4) please i am struggling to do this work. I would appreciate if you would explain in detail. Thank you in advance.1 solutions Answer 153249 by jim_thompson5910(28595)   on 2009-07-14 23:48:19 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Ok, first off let's bring up the unit circle This is a very handy tool. For each given angle (located on the spokes of the wheel), there is a point that lies on the circle. It turns out that the x coordinate of the point refers to the cosine of that given angle. Likewise, the y coordinate of the point refers to the sine of that angle. For example, the cosine of is since the x coordinate of this point is . Also, the sine of is since the y coordinate of this point is . You can use the unit circle to evaluate the sine/cosine of any given angle shown. Finally, remember that we have the following identities: I hope this will refresh something or help you get started. If this didn't help, please let me know or repost.

 Exponential-and-logarithmic-functions/203087: Find the absolute maximum and absolute minimum values of the function below. If an absolute maximum or minimum does not exist, enter NONE. f(x) = x^2 + 250/x on the open interval (0,infinity ) I know that the absolute max is the answer NONE but I can not figure out the absolute min can someone help please thanks1 solutions Answer 153219 by jim_thompson5910(28595)   on 2009-07-14 16:28:18 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Here are the basics to finding the extrema (ie the max/min) Step 1) Derive the function f(x) to get f'(x) Since this means that or simply Step 2) Set the derivative function f'(x) equal to zero Multiply both sides by and rearrange the equation. Add 250 to both sides. Take the square root of both sides Simplify the square root Evaluate the square root Now because the domain is , this means that we must reject (as it isn't in the domain) So the max/min occurs at the approximate value (or at the endpoints) Now if you graph the function (or evaluate a list of x values), you'll find that there is no max value (so you are correct). So this means that the min occurs when or the min occurs at the endpoints of the interval. Because x=0 is not defined (and infinity is not a number), this means that the min must occur at Step 3) Find the minimum value of the function f(x) From here, simply plug in the x value that generates the min value, which in this case is to get So the absolute min is approximately f(x)=31.6228 and occurs at x=15.8114 Note: if you want to keep things exact, then you can plug in to get the min value: . This would then mean that the absolute min of occurs at
