1. ### Difficult simplification for Arc length integral

Okay thanks for the help everyone
2. ### Difficult simplification for Arc length integral

Thanks for the reply. Yeah I know the dx and dy are backwards...it's just the generic formula we were given. Sorry for any confusion. I did expand the expression under the radical and came up with the same expansion you did, but I still could not see a good way to integrate it. That's...
3. ### Difficult simplification for Arc length integral

Homework Statement Find the length of the curve x = 3 y^{4/3}-\frac{3}{32}y^{2/3}, \quad -64\le y\le 64 Homework Equations Integral for arc length (L): L = \int_a^b \sqrt{1 + (\frac{dy}{dx})^{2}} dx The Attempt at a Solution Using symmetry of the interval and the above integral for arc...
4. ### Integral involving square root and exp

Okay. I think I've got it. So, \int\frac{dx}{\sqrt{e^{x} + 1}} = \int\frac{2u du}{u(u^{2}-1)} = \int\frac{2du}{(u+1)(u-1)} = \int\frac{du}{u-1} - \int\frac{du}{u-1} = ln|u-1| - ln|u+1| = ln\frac{|u-1|}{|u+1|} where u = \sqrt{e^{x}+1} = ln\frac{\sqrt{e^{x}+1}-1}{\sqrt{e^{x}+1}+1} Thank...
5. ### Integral involving square root and exp

Okay. So, \int\frac{dx}{\sqrt{e^{x} + 1}} = \int\frac{2u du}{u(u^{2}-1)} = \int\frac{2du}{(u+1)(u-1)} And now I'm stuck again.
6. ### Integral involving square root and exp

Homework Statement \int\frac{dx}{\sqrt{e^{x} + 1}} Homework Equations Using u-substitution The Attempt at a Solution Let u = \sqrt{e^{x} + 1} \Rightarrow u^{2} - 1 = e^{x} Then, du = \frac{e^{x} dx}{2\sqrt{e^{x} + 1}} \Rightarrow dx = \frac{2u du}{u^{2}-1} So...
7. ### Find a basis for the subset

Homework Statement Find a basis for the subset S = {(1, 2, 1), (2, 1, 3), (1, -4, 3)} Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I'm not absolutely sure I'm doing this correctly but here is my attempt: First, I put the vectors in S in the rows of a matrix (using multiple...

9. ### Number of functions from one set to another

Actually I do need help with b). I don't understand what the problem is asking for.
10. ### Number of functions from one set to another

Sorry for the delay. a) If n = 1 then there are two choices for the first and only element in the domain. So, we have 2 functions if n = 1 If n = 2 then there are two choices for the first element in the domain. Then, since one choice is taken there is one choice for the second element...
11. ### Number of functions from one set to another

Homework Statement How many functions are there from the set {1, 2, . . . , n}, where n is a positive integer, to the set {0, 1} a) that are one-to-one? b) that assign 0 to both 1 and n? c) that assign 1 to exactly one of the positive integers less than n? Homework Equations...

Yeah, now that I look at the problem again I think she just wants us to do every other odd.
13. ### Clarification on set of assigned homework problems

Hello everyone, For homework my instructor assigned problem from the book. To show which problems to do she wrote this: 4n + 1 N={1, 2, 3...}. Does this mean problems 5, 9, 13, . . . ? Thanks for any suggestions.

Just answer yes or no. And, you answered my question. I'm pretty sure the answer is yes. Thanks.
17. ### Partition of Integers with mod

Sorry, I forgot to mention this is far from a formal proof. R just means remainder.

22. ### Symmetric difference of relationships

Yeah, that would probably help me understand it better. Thanks.
23. ### Symmetric difference of relationships

Actually, I defined it as (R1 - R2) ∪ (R2 - R1). How's that?
24. ### Symmetric difference of relationships

Homework Statement 2. Let R1 = {(1,1),(1,2),(2,3),(3.4), (2,4) } and R2 = {(1,1),(2,2),(2,3),(3,3),(3,4) } be relations from {1,2,3} to {1,2,3,4} R1⨁ R2 Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution R1⨁ R2 = {(1,2), (2,2), (2, 4), (3,3)} Is this correct?
