help with tan equation
Consider the following function. http://www.webassign.net/cgibin/sym...9x%29%2Fx%5E3
(a) Evaluate h(x) for the following values of x. (Give your answer correct to six decimal places.)
xf(x) 1Enter a number.
1 0.5 Enter a number.
2 0.1 Enter a number.
3 0.05 Enter a number.
4 0.01 Enter a number.
5 0.005 Enter a number.

Just replace each $\displaystyle x$ in the function with the value given when you enter it into your calculator.

I tried that, but its not counting it correct. For example:
$\displaystyle tan(0.5)=0.00872686$ Then $\displaystyle \frac{0.008726860.5}{0.5^3}$ which give you 3.930185...which is not correct.

Your equation is $\displaystyle h(x)$ but in your table the header is $\displaystyle f(x)$ is this correct?

Actually yes, lol, I dont know how they messed that up, but yes that is what it shows on the website.

Maybe you need to change the mode on your calculator; I'm getting 0.370420 for that question.

Shouldnt it be in degrees?

Haha. A common mistake. I've made it so many times now that I always watch out for it :)
I think it should be in Radian mode.
