My maths assignment is due tomorrow, and i dont understand it. i know how to do it using the secant method, but we are not allowed to use it.
I NEED TO DIFFERENTIATE THIS PROBLEM!!!
if anyone can tell me what the differential of this equation is without using a secant method, i will LOVE you forever!!!!
hmmm okay, that means i got the first equation wrong and its not tan230/x. ummm let me just tell you what im trying to answer.
"Local art gallery wants to know what distance patrons are to stand away from artworks for optimal viewing agle. consider at least 2 scenarios with painting size and hight placements."
so ive made the hieght of the painting 2m (200cm) and the bottome of the artwork 30cm above eye level.
that would make the opposite wall 230cm. and as the adjacent is unknown, i assumed that by using a tan function i could find the optimal angle, and then find the distance. is this the wrong way to go about it?
