It could have been a typo. I spoke with a few upperclassman who have taken the course and they recommended to leave it implicitly.
I guess tan^-1(3) will have to do. I'm going to speak with the professor before the exam. Thanks for confirming the memorization issue.
In my math class, we are not permitted to use a calculator. I am currently reviewing for a test and came across a small problem.
Perform the following operation using the Euler (polar) form for the complex numbers involved.
Thank you for all of the responses. They have provided insight, and I'm thinking differently about these approximations now.
I'm assuming you're talking about the problem : (.9997)^.5
Hmm, I'm not seeing how a taylor expansion will help.
The taylor expansion for the form (1+x)^n is(I...
I am currently taking a mathematical methods in physics course. We were given a prerequisite inventory on the first day of class. There are 4 problems that we are assumed to be able to do in our head to 4 or 5 digit accuracy. I am not sure of how to compute these...
