    Basic ODE question

    y'=1=[2/root(x+2)] Then I plugged it into the original and got both sides to equal. BUT I still have no idea what the original question is actually asking me to do in each part?

    Basic ODE question

    Just started Engineering Math III and have a question. Sorry about the notation, our library computers have scripts disabled. My math prof does a poor job of explaining the concepts. Help me out! Homework Statement Verify the indicated function y=phi(x) is an explicit solution of the...

    Plane to Ship Displacement (using component method)

    Yeah I did draw a diagram, I just don't have a scanner to upload it. I never thought to look at it as two triangles though. So what I actually should have is: Shipx=15.4sin57 = 12.9i Shipy=15.4cos57 = -8.39j Planex=19.4sin30 = 9.7i km Planey=19.4cos30 = -16.8j km Planez=2.06k km Therefore...

    Plane to Ship Displacement (using component method)

    Really? So Sin is for the X direction, and cos is for the Y? That's not what my textbook says?

    Plane to Ship Displacement (using component method)

    Homework Statement A coastguard station locates a ship at range 15.4 km and bearing 123° clockwise from north. From the same station a plane is at horizontal range 19.4 km, 150° clockwise from north, with elevation 2.06 km. What is the vector displacement from plane to ship, let i represent...

    Functions 12U - Basic Polynomial questions

    Righto I missed that one, so the next lines should be: 2016 = x^3 + 25x^2 + 150x + 500 0 = x^3 + 25x^2 + 150x -1516 Then I would just use factor theorem to solve for x, does that work out in this case?

    Functions 12U - Basic Polynomial questions

    Alright, thanks for the help :) Typo on the first one, let me try again ;) Problem One 1008 = [(10+x)(10+x)(5+x)] / 2 Solution Attempt 504=[(10+x)(10+x)(5+x)] 504= (100+10x+10x+x^2)(5+x) 504= 500 + 50x + 5x^2 + 100x + 20x^2 + x^3 504 = x^3 + 25x^2 + 150x + 500 0 = x^3 +...

    Thanks again Tedjn. I totally forgot about the https://www.physicsforums.com/latex_images/17/1740837-11.png [Broken] My test is in about half an hour, i'm just reviewing my stuff now.

    Grade 12U Calculus - Algebraic Vectors+Cross&Dot Product

    Thanks everyone for your help. Especially Tedjn for all that typing! I'm still completely lost on 12b,12c and 14. What you typed doesn't even makes sense to me :confused: Anyways, at least i'm better off then I was before I posted here, even if I couldn't figure everything out. I attribute it...
