    Basic limit involving absolute value

    Ok, I see what you are saying now, but when I graphed the parabola, I also saw that coming from the right-hand side, the values of x were also positive up until x=1.

    Basic limit involving absolute value

    Im still not sure how it is you are coming to the statement that "if x comes from the left, then this expression is positive." Can you explain how you are getting this? Here is what I have now:

    Basic limit involving absolute value

    Ok, from the left-hand side of the limit, I got -2, and from the right-hand side I got 2, and when x-1=0 I got "does not exist." Is this right?

    Integration by parts & inv. trig fxn

    I still dont see how this gets (1/8), and even then, what is the purpose of doing this, and where does the (2x) come from?

    Applying Integration by Parts & Trig Substitution

    Okay, thats what I thought you wanted me to do. I am now left with this: (7/4)\int sec^{3}Θ = (3/4)secΘtanΘ - (3/4)ln\left|secΘ + tanΘ\right| + C Now I need to manipulate the fraction so as to get (4/3)\int sec^{3}Θ How do I do this?

    Evaluating point using derivative graph

    Oh, I was unaware of the equivalent form. This makes much more sense now! One last question though. One of the theorems states that the derivative of an integral is the original function. Does this statement also work in reverse? I.e. the integral of a derivative also yields the original...

    How many combinations?

    Originally, I had thought this too, however, I think the order matters here, so the permutation formula must be used.

    How many combinations?

    Ok, so I should use n!/(n-r)! so, 6!/(6-4)! = 360?

    How many combinations?

    I dont have a textbook, but im thinking permutations. I dont really know how they differ functionally from a combination though.

    How many combinations?

    I would think the order is important, but how does that help me?

    How many combinations?

    This implies that after each time I have chosen a letter, there is one less to choose from. I tried to use n! to find an answer by doing 6x5x4x3x2x1, but the resulting answer was way to large.

    How many combinations?

    Im not sure how this is so easy for you. I assume that the question means that no lettter can be used more than once within one of the 4-letter codes. If this is the case, then there are way to many codes to write by hand. This problem came from a review worksheet. If this is not a...
