#94851Trig Question

Posted by on 14 March 2007 - 10:41 PM in Mathematics

cos(x+15) = 2/3

take the cos over to the other side to get

x+15 = cos^-1(2/3)
x+15 = 48.1897

then solve for x

x = 48.1897 - 15
x = 33.1897

x is in degrees btw

start by finding the equation of the radius

from there you find the line perpendicular to to the radius

I think you can go on from there.

#91463Integration

Posted by on 02 December 2006 - 07:14 PM in Mathematics

For the first one:

Break the fraction up and use the rules opf indices to simplify and then integrate.

For the second one:

Multiply out the bracket and do the same from there as you did with the first one.

I know there is a simpler way, but i cant remember how to do it.

#94187Help with a past paper question

Posted by on 21 February 2007 - 07:45 PM in Mathematics

Use the chain rule on the trig part, and standard differentiation on the latter

You are correct.

Now what you need to do is subsitute x and y for the co-ordinate (0,18).

And then solve for a.

Tell me what you get for your answer and I'll let you know if it is correct.

A product is the answer from multiplying two or more numbers together, not the summation of two or more numbers.

For question seven use b2 - 4ac = a negative number, to find the smallest possible integer value for K.

#91618Housing Associations

Posted by on 05 December 2006 - 05:20 PM in Geography

Some are private companies such as Partick Housing Association Ltd, and then others just manage the stock on behalf of a larger organisation(This is the way GHA works afaik).

With the first case, i would assume if they have shares available, anyone, other wise an individual/group.

If you want to know any more I'll just ask my mum, she's on the board for a Housing Association or Local Housing Organisation, one of the two i can't remember lol

#91639Housing Associations

Posted by on 05 December 2006 - 10:03 PM in Geography

By shares i just meant that people are able to be a member of that company, but some of the Housing Associations are probably Profit making organisations.

#91588Housing Associations

Posted by on 04 December 2006 - 11:51 PM in Geography

By moving social housing stock from a local government to a housing association allows the housing stock to be managed more efficiently.

This is possible as the organisation is set up specifically to deal with the housing stock, with no interference from the local government.

It also means that the rent you pay is GUARANTEED to go towards the housing stock, whether it be to pay for people to manage it, to fund repairs and regeneration, or to simply keep the tenements and high rise flats clean and tidy in communal areas.

Although repairs and cleansing are normally outsourced to the local government. Which is what happens with GHA managed stock in Glasgow.

But what would be most important to the people, is that they can have a much greater say in the running of their Landlord.

Also, i think this belongs in the Modern Studies forum more than Geography.

#90163Trig help

Posted by on 13 October 2006 - 06:53 PM in Mathematics

I've been asked this question in my uni homework and not sure how to expand it.

Expand sin(A + B + C) in terms of sin A, sin B, sin C, cos A, cos B, cos C.

How would i tackle this?

They also ask the same for cos(A + B + C)

Thankies =D

Hmm cant help you there then, as i don't know what they cover in the new study theme.

#91638Btw......this unit I've been "doing" for the past few weeks....

Posted by on 05 December 2006 - 10:01 PM in Mathematics

I recommend FoxIt Reader 2.0 it's better

And all you really need to know about Integration from Unit 2 is

Raise the power and divide by that new power.

#91001Given the gradient and finding the equation?

Posted by on 15 November 2006 - 08:56 PM in Mathematics

To find the equation of the tangent to a curve you narmally differentiate.

So do that, you know that dy/dx = 2 so find what dy/dx is and solve it for 2.

So after that you have the x co-ordinate, plug that into the equation of the curve and use the answer from that for the y co-ordinate.

After that use the formula y-b=m(x-a)

Does that make any sense to you?

#91003Given the gradient and finding the equation?

Posted by on 15 November 2006 - 09:12 PM in Mathematics

the discrminant (b2-4ac) only tells you the nature of the roots of the quadratic
