Best subject: Mathematics (which is kinda vague, really, because what kind of math can I really do?)

"Clearly", mathematics is my best subject since the Ph.D. I'm currently working on is in mathematics. XD

I for some darn reason can't understand geometry enough to tutor it. I get chills down my spine each time I'm confronted with those two column proofs. As a result, I'm more of an algebra person. XD

The courses I can tutor include (but are not limited to):

High School:
- Algebra
- Trigonometry
- Precalculus
- AP Calculus AB/BC
- AP Stats (kind of)

University Level:
- Calculus (1,2,3, Vector Calc)
- Abstract/Linear Algebra
- Topology (kind of)
- Statistics (kind of)
- Number Theory
- Differential Equations (both Ordinary and Partial)
- Differential Geometry (kind of)
- Analysis (Real or Complex...for the most part)
- Discrete Math

Just wondering...
Could someone help me with a little calculus exercise?

lim(x->0) (log(1+10x))/x

Quick question: are you using
or
(i.e. the natural log)? I ask this because different parts of the world use one of those two definitions.

I'll proceed as follows. The answer will differ by a constant based on how you define your log. So, we observe that

.

Now, we can apply L'Hôpital's rule (i.e. differentiate both the numerator and denominator).

You will get

if
and you will get

if
.

Thus, it follows that

if

or

if

I hope you're able to make sense out of this!!

Re: For EE or Physics students

This question is for an EE or physics student.

Do you know how much power a return signal has to have in order for radar to be useful?

Here is why I need to know this. I'm designing a satellite that must detect a piece of space debris (Delta II second stage, about 6 meter tall 2.4 meter diameter radius) at a distance of up to 1 km. The satellite size is one cubic meter, so we don't have much room to work with antenna size. Also, we don't have very much power to spare. Ideally I would like to use no more than 30 Watts, and an antenna more than 0.5 m^2 would probably not be practical.
without doing any maths, you could probably do it with only a couple of watts. electrical engineering isn't my specialty but I doubt you'll get much help on here...

Also, do you mean diameter or radius? there is no such thing as a diameter radius...

give me the exact details and I migth be able to work it out.

I see you don't have a World History Tutor, I'll step in (Don't worry I'm very good at History; it's my best subject. If you need me for any other history I can help.)

How can I factorize an equation like 3xy-1-3x+y?

Also, if someone could do (x²-x-2)/(x-2) and leave their traces. Thanks.

I need someone to explain this simply.

Zeno states that for motion to occur, an object must change the position which it occupies. He gives an example of an arrow in flight. He states that in any one (durationless) instant of time, the arrow is neither moving to where it is, nor to where it is not. It cannot move to where it is not, because no time elapses for it to move there; it cannot move to where it is, because it is already there. In other words, at every instant of time there is no motion occurring. If everything is motionless at every instant, and time is entirely composed of instants, then motion is impossible.

What would the answers to these be?

Find the slope and y-intercept of each equation

y=2/3x +1

y= -x - 7
The red one is subtract

y= -3/4x - 5
The red one means subtract

#### Fawkes.

generally Gradient equations are set out in this manner

Y = (Gradient)X +/- (Y intercept)

so numbers in front of the x are the gradients(slopes) and the integers are the y intercept;

1. y=2/3x +1 so gradient is 2/3 and y intercept is 1

2. y= -(1)x - 7 so gradient is -1 and y intercept is -7

you can try the last one yourself so you learn instead of me giving you the answers

I need help with my Pre-Cal homework.

The problem I'm working on is:

Perform the indicated operation and use the fundamental identities to simplify.

(24/sec(X)+1)- 24/sec(x)-1

I know that I have to multiply by the other denominator and I'm pretty sure the denominator of the next step is (sec(x) +1)(sec(x)1)

I'm not sure if I should distribute or keep 24(secx-1) or 24(secx+1). If your interested, I could really use the help.

Sorry, if it's late, but people can still learn and the problem is: ((24)/(sec(x)+1))-((24)/(sec(x)-1))
Right? This is how I would insert it into my calculator. My mind thought part of it said "((24)/(sec(x)))-1". I use too much paratheses; maybe I should use some brackets.
I would, after multiplying the numerator by the other denominator, try taking out 24. It would eventually become (-48)/(sec(x)+1)(sec(x)-1) because you would multiply secant x plus one by the negative one that was left behind when you took out 24. Negative secant plus positive equals zero and negative one minus one equals negative two. Then, multiply -2 by 24.
Distributing and then solving takes longer than just taking out the common factor. I like cancelling before-hand.

Ah, thanks.

Is this project still ongoing? If it is, I'll sign up as a tutor.
