    Tough Inexact equation

    I've been working on this inexact equation for a while and can't seem to finish it up properly. I get down to the last step where you have to solve for the "constant of integration" (which is a function of y), but when I isolate C'(y) I get x terms. The problem is $ x^2 + 2xy + y^2 + (y^2 + 2xy...

    Tough Limit

    Hello, Am stuck at this one \displaystyle\lim_{x\to1} \sqrt{x-1} \cdot ln\left(ln\left(\frac{1}{x}\right)\right) Basically re-write it as \displaystyle\lim_{x\to1} \dfrac{ ln\left(ln\left(\frac{1}{x}\right)\right) }{ (x-1)^{\frac{-1}{2}} } and start applying L'Rule. But it never ends and...

    Three tough problems.

    Sorry for such vague title. Anyway, I am doing some math evaluation test when I ran across these bad boys. For question #1, I have no idea where to begin. For question #2, I forgot how to deal with absolute values. For question #3: y= x+1 So, y^2 = x^2 + 2x +1 Sub that into the other equation...

    Tough series to test for convergence

    Hello, Test the series for convergence from n=2 to n=infinity of 1 / ( ln(n) )^9 The whole ln is raised to power 9 Tried as much as I can and nothing comes out I believe it needs advanced tests not the basic ones.

    Tough Connected Problem

    I just need help understanding this problem: Suppose that \{X_i,\Omega_i) : i\in I\} is a family of topological spaces and suppose that \bold{x} and \bold{y} are members of \prod \{X_i : i\in I\}. If \bold{x} and \bold{y} differ in only one coordinate, prove that they must lie in the same...

    Tough Algebraic question for a 10 year old

    Here's the problem: If X horses can eat through Y bags of feed in Z days. How many days would U bags of feed last with V similar horses eating at the same rate? My answer: Let the number of days be a = U/V The rate of eating for each horse is Y/X per day V similar horses would...

    Approximation Error and Tough Integral

    Hello Everyone! Today We are asked to find \int_{1}^{2} e^\frac{1}{x}dx. We are given two option. First is by evaluating the definite integral itself or we can do numerical approximation using both Trapezoidal and Mid point Rules with sub interval n valued at 10. Since I've figured out that...

    Tough Differential Equation Problem

    I need to find a function F such that it is continuous everywhere and y'(t)=F(y(t)) and y(0)=0 The only thing i could think of is y(t)=e^t but that obviously doesnt satisfy the initial value. Any help or hints is greatly appreciated.
