MathFirst we have to write the equation of the oblique asymptote of f(x). y=mx+n m = lim [f(x)/x] If the limit value is finite, then we can calculate n. n = lim[f(x)mx] Let's calculate m. m = lim...

MathTo prove that g(x) is the indefinite integral for f(x), that is, the derivative of g(x) has to be f(x). Let's calculate the first derivative of g(x). g'(x) = [x^2 * ( 1lnx )]' Being a product,...

HamletHamlet makes a variety of statements about human weakness, at times picking on a certain subset of humanity to do so, namely in his "frailty they name is woman" bit. In the "To be or not to be"...

MathFirst we'll write the equation of the slope of the line: y  yA = m(x  xA), where m is the slope of the line. But m=f'(1) y  yA = f'(1)(x  xA), where xA=1 and yA=3 y  3 = f'(1)(x  1) To...

MathTo solve this equation first we need to obtain f'(x) while .......... f(x) = 3x^2 / x^2  1 lets assume that f(x) = g(x)/r(x) then f'(x) = [g'(x) r(x)  g(x) r'(x)] / r(x)^2 ==> f'(x) =...

MathWe'll use the rule of exponentials: (a^b)^c=a^(b*c) Following the rule, we'll get: (x^3)^1/5 = x^(3/5) Now, we'll differentiate using the rule of rational exponents: df/dx = 2*(3/5)*x^(3/5 ...

MathA way to solve this problem is to expand the cube first and to differentiate with respect to x. ( x^2 + 2 )^3 = x^6+8+6x^2*( x^2 + 2 ) ( x^2 + 2 )^3 = x^6+6x^4+12x^2+8 Now we'll differentiate:...

MathTo find the derivative of y=( 2x^3  5x^2 + 4 )^5, we'll use the chain rule. For this reason, we'll note 2x^3  5x^2 + 4=u. y= ( 2x^3  5x^2 + 4 )^5=u^5 The chain rule states: dy/dx =...
