    This is difficult as well, don't know where to start

    Let u = (u1, u2, u3) be a vector in R 3 . Prove that ||u|| = 0 if and only if u = 0. [Note: the ‘if and only if’ phrase means that you have to prove TWO things - firstly, that ||u|| = 0 implies u = 0; and secondly, that u = 0 implies ||u|| = 0.]

    difficult stationary points question

    the interval is x and y between 0.25pi and 0.5pi (the square thing kind of confused me!) I got ∂u/∂x = siny sin(2x+y) =0 siny = 0 y = 0 ± npi (not in interval so doesn't count ; npi means integer number of pi) OR 2x +y =0 Also, ∂u/∂y = sinx sin(2y+x) =0 Again sinx =0 ; x = 0 ±npi...

    Difficult Integration problem!!

    Hi folks I would greatly appreciate some help with this. I have to integrate the following for a project; Integrate ; (a-m/2 ). (1.122 - 0.231(a/b) + 10.55(a/b)2 - 21.71(a/b)3 - 30.382(a/b)4)-m da [/SUP] I know integration by parts, so can I get away with U =(1.122 - 0.231(a/b) +...

    Analysis question- a bit difficult!

    For each integer n>=0, let [a_n, b_n] be a closed, bounded interval in R (real numbers) such that a_n <= b_n (a_n is greater than equal to b_n). Suppose that the resulting collection of intervals is pairwise disjoint, that is if n =/ m (n is not equal to m), then the intersection of [a_n, b_n]...

    Difficult Indefinite Integral

    A friend of mine (and now I am) is trying to solve this for a high school kid's AP calculus course. I'm not really worried about the limit part but more how you work it into the correct form to get arctan as an answer. Wolfram took away their free step by step solutions and I'm out of tricks of...

    difficult induction problem

    Show that if 0 \leq x < n,n \geq 1, and n \in \mathbb{N} then 0 \leq e^{-x} - \left( 1 - \frac{x}{n} \right ) ^n \leq \frac{x^2e^{-x}}{n}. by mathematical induction.​ I suppsoe the best way is to split up the problem into two parts, one for each of the inequalitys. Doing this, I can get the base...

    Need help proving survivor function (difficult integration/proof)

    Hello, I'm looking to prove a specific part of the survivor function. Basically, I need to show that the mean residual life function [m(t)] uniquely defines the distribution of T. I have a solution, but I am not able to follow how the integration process leads to the final answer: Here...

    2 very difficult trig problems

    Having an extremely difficult time solving 2 problems. Have posted it as a photo attachment. The first 2 paragraphs & diagram relate to the 1st problem. The last paragraph is for the second problem. For the second problem, I tried using double-angle formula, but I don't know where to go after...

    A more difficult integral, general power formula

    Question: Integrate 28-1-16 (int) 0.8((3 + 2 ln(u))^3) du/u My attempt: u = (3 + 2 ln u) du = 2(1/u) = 2/u My guess at this is to divide the whole integral by 2 now since it has been multiplied by 2 in the derivative. resulting in this: 0.4[3 + 2 ln u]/4 I used a Ti-89 and got a very weird...
