    For 59 you have "- x3" when you should be subtracting the square.

    For 60 you have "[itex]\sqrt{x}+ \sqrt{x}+ \sqrt{x}[/itex]" for "add three times the square root". That will work but should be written more simply as "[itex]3\sqrt{x}[/itex]".

    The others are correct.

    my dear

    #59 what is wrong ?

    # 60
    F(x) = -8xccube + 3square root of 3

    now is ok?

    #59 "subtracts the square of the domain element", not the cube of it, as you have.
    #60 Correct. F(x) = -8x3 + 3[itex]\sqrt{3}[/itex]

    In #59 the question says "...then subtract the square of the domain element..." (maybe the underline is the key here :wink:)
    But you have subtracted the cube.
    the square ---> x2
    the cube ----> x3

    See the dilemma?

    For #60 yes that is ok now.
