General Calculus Question

  1. Apr 22, 2013 #1
    1. So the question for one of the problems(My teacher made up the problem which is divided into parts but I just had a question in one of them) So the problem is let h = 3+(the last digit of the year in which you were born). Use the conventional Western (Gregorian) calender to determine the year.

    3. I tried looking it up and it seemed the year doesn't change for the gregorian calender. In my case my birthday is in 1994. So would it just be h = 3+4 = 7. So h = 7?

    I can't see anything wrong with that. But why is this a calculus question?

    Well it's because that value h will be used along with value k and z to calculate the sphere of an equation and using to state whether the spheres intersect each plane. So my h value has to be right. I just wanted to verify if I was doing it correctly. It's vector calculus.

    Oh, so it's just a trick to make sure not all of the students get exactly the same question?

    Yep that's basically it!
