    Integral of 1/(1-x)

    Yeah so basically we all know that the integral of 1/(1-x) is -ln(1-x)+c, but if I factor out -1 from the denominator before integration I seem to get -ln(x-1)+c. Can someone explain where the mistake is?

    Graph Theory Optimization Problem

    Hi everyone, I'm currently working on an algorithm aiming to find the best route between two vertices (the best, not the shortest...(Nod)) My hypothesis : - G a graph - each vertex is graded (a grade out of 10 for example) - the edges are also weighted - we call "mean of a path" the...

    Integral problem with A and c. im very confused, help would be welcomed :)

    This is the question and I'm not entirely sure where to go from here. Thanks! Assume c>0 and A>0, and compute the volume of the solid obtained by revolving the region bound by the graph of f(x)=Ax^2, the vertical line x=c, and the x-axis about the x-axis. Your answer should be in terms of A and...

    cylindrical coordinate problem

    find the volume bounded by cylinder (y^2 0 + (z^2 0 =1 , plane y = x and y-z plane in first octant... I'm not sure to let my y = rcos theta or r sin (theta) , but i do know that volume must be positive.... I'm not convinced that why should i use y = r sintheta

    simple computation problem?

    Another question from sosmath.com: f(x) = x^2 - 2x +3; find [f(a-b) - f(a)]/b And the answer given is 2a + b -2. I keep getting b - 2a + 2. I get it like this: ( (a-b)^2 -2(a-b) + 3 - [a^2 -2a + 3] ) / b ... ( a^2 -2ab +b^2 -2a + 2b + 3 - [a^2 -2a +3] ) / b ( a^2 -2ab +b^2 -2a + 2b +...

    Optmization Problem

    Determine the value of the constant k which best approximates a specified function f(x) on the interval ≤≤. Use as a cost function to be minimized: Verify that a minimum is achieved by checking the 2nd order optimality condition. I rewrote L(k) and then tried to find the value of k such that...

    Linear algebra Gauss-jordan elimination problem

    Hi. I've been working on this problem. Show that the following non-linear system has 18 solutions if { 0 <= a, b, c <= pi } sin(a) + 2cos(b) + 3tan(c) = 0 2sin(a) + 5cos(b) +3tan(c) = 0 -sin(a) - 5cos(b) + 5tan(c) = 0 So I substituted sin(a), cos(b), and tan(c) for x, y, and z and then used...
