CalculusWe have to verify the value of lim x> 1[ (x^2  6x + 5)/(x  1)] Substituting x = 1 we get the indeterminate form 0/0. So, we can use l'Hopital's rule and substitute the numerator and...

trigonometry mathWe have to solve cos 3x = cos x for x in the interval (0 , 2*pi) We know that cos 3x = 4(cos x)^3  3cos x cos 3x = cos x => 4(cos x)^3  3cos x = cos x let cos x = t => 4t^3  4t = 0 =>...

applicationsWe have to solve for t given that t^8 = 8^2 t^8 = 8^2 => t^8 = 2^3^2 => t^8 = 2^6 => t = 2^(6/8) => t = 2^(3/4) The required value of t = 2^(3/4)

algebra1The nth term of an arithmetic sequence can be written as a + (n  1)*d, where a is the first term and d is the common difference. We have a2a6+a4=7 => a + d  a  5d + a + 3d = 7 => a  d...

algebra1We have to solve 5^(2x+1)=5^x^2 5^(2x+1)=5^x^2 As the base is the same we can equate the exponent: 2x + 1 = x^2 => x^2 + 2x + 1 = 0 => (x + 1)^2 = 0 => x = 1 The required solution is x...
