    Combining two equations

    Hi, I have two equations as follows: L is proportional to (M^6/R^7) which I have to combine with: L is proportional to M^5.5 R^-0.5 I need to end up with a relationship which has L proportional to R so that M is eliminated. My current attempt has gone along the following lines: Rearrange...

    Combining inequalities

    1st post here. I came across this problem in a GMAT reviewer and I naturally got B, but the correct answer is listed as A. There was a brief explanation about why the answer is A: (2-x)^(1/2), but the brief explanation confused me. I realize that x>=2, but I don't see how I can use that to...

    Combining two dependant discrete random variables

    Hi, I’m looking for a way to combine two discrete random variables (which I have as probability distributions). The combination should be the product (or other operation) of the two variables. This would be easy if they were independent, but they’re not. There is a known correlation between...

    Ricatti Equations and combining integration constants.

    Im all good up until part (d). In part (c) we have a DE with constant coefficients with \lambda = 1. The general solution for w is w(x) = C_1e^x + C_2xe^x w'(x) = C_1e^x + C_2e^x + C_2xe^x Substituting the formulas for w(x) and w'(x) gives: y(x) = e^-x * (C_1e^x + C_2e^x + C_2xe^x) /...

    Combining chained inequalities

    I've written a proof which ends with the (simplified) statement: "Statement A is true iff a<x<b OR b<x<a" This is because b is not necessarily greater than a. In plain English, "Statement A is true if and only if x is between values a and b" I wonder if there is some way of combining the...

    Combining MLEs question

    Hi everyone, How do you find a combined MLE? As in say you are given data from three different games and you want to work out the MLE of, say, p_A, the probability that team A wins a game. Do you work out the MLEs individually from each game and then do something to them? But what? Thanks...

    Combining two series (Binomial Expansion)

    I've been working through this binomial question in my notes and there is one step I'm not entirely sure about. When it comes to the point of combining the two series into one I'm fairly certain what's in my notes is incorrect so I'd like to fix it. It's safe to assume that all the work up to...
