    Calculation method

    You've misunderstood the whole thing! Definition: A fixed point of a function g(x) is a number p such that p = g(p). Caution. A fixed point is not a root of the equation 0 = g(x), it is a solution of the equation x = g(x). Geometrically, the fixed points of a function g(x) are the...

    Help with triple integration problem

    No, since: \int_{\frac{\pi}{6}}^{\frac{\pi}{4}} sin\phi d\phi = [-cos\phi]_{\frac{\pi}{6}}^{\frac{\pi}{4}} = -cos(\frac{\pi}{4}) - (-cos(\frac{\pi}{6})) = cos(\frac{\pi}{6}) - cos(\frac{\pi}{4})

    Limits and L'Hopital

    "Calculations" of this kind possess no conclusive power. For example: \lim_{x\rightarrow0}\frac{e^x-1}{x} Differentiating the numerator and the denominator gives: \lim_{x\rightarrow0}\frac{e^x}{1}=1 But to know that D(e^x) = e^x we must master \lim_{x\rightarrow0}\frac{e^x-1}{x}

    Infinite Series/Calculus III

    Have you tried the case for which x=1? f(1) = 1 + 1 + (1^2)/2 + (1^3)/6 + (1^4)/24 + (1^5)/120 + (1^6)/720 = ?
