    Give the starting value a, the growth factor for the given exponential function

    Q = 13 * 2(t/10)-1 has: a = b = Q = (1/7)*(cubed root of 8t) has: a= b= Q(t) = 0.0033(2.26)-4t The initial value is a = The growth factor is b= The growth rate is r = I'm at a loss as to how to solve these problems. Do I need to get it to abt form?

    Problem finding a continuous curved line given half of the starting curve...

    I found out a problem I posted earlier is actually a calculus problem, after plotting values on an x,y axis and finding out it is a problem involving calculus and plotting a line on a graph. I have three variables derived from any set 'x': x, e, and a. After the set X1...XN (where all members...

    issue starting a prrof

    trouble starting a proof So the claim is: If X^3+4X>0, then 5x+9>6 We are supposed to show our scratch work which generally means he wants us to figure it out algebraicly and then use our work backwards to form the proof. However, i'm not sure how to start. We don't have any theorems that...

    Material to review before starting DE courses?

    Hi all, I've been away from calculus for about 2-3 years (though in the interm have taken other math like analysis and algebra) and I'm preparing to start a course in ODEs next semester, to be followed next year with more courses on dynamical systems and PDEs. I have basically zero experience...
