In The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell, there is an episode during the calculus class:
“Carrie,” Mr. Douglas says. “Can you give me the basicequation for movement?”
Thank God we learned that equation last year. I rattle itoff like a robot: “X to the fifth degree times Y to the tenthdegree minus a random integer usually known as N.”
Could you please help me write down this equation in math form (I need it to be able to correctly translate the book into Ukrainian). I could not find anything on the net. I would be grateful for any explanation. Thanks in advance.
