How many zeros does a million and billion have. That depends on the definitions of "million" and "billion" which (I think) vary between countries. Like "billion" in America is "a thousand million" but I'm pretty sure it's something different ("a million ...

I looked up "SPSS 14" in Google. This is a software package, right? If there are forums that offer help for that package, then maybe they could help you set up the commands (?) correctly there. Good luck!

how do I solve for x given: 4e^-.2x + 3e^-.3x = .5 This one is at least as bad as your other one! x\, =\, 10 i \, \bigg(2 \pi n\, +\, \pi\, -\, i \log\left[ \, \dfrac{\left(1\,-\, i\, \sqrt{3\,}\right)\, \sqrt[3]{27\,+\,i\, \sqrt{807\,}\,}}{2\, \times\, \sqrt[3]{9\,}}\, +\, \dfrac{4\, \...

(a^b)(a^c)=(a^(b+c)) so above factoring won't work You're right! I think maybe "FWT" hadn't had his/her caffeine yet when s/he posted that! :v_confused: According to Wolfram's "Alpha" solver, this doesn't solve simply. They give this: x\, =\, i \, \left(2 \pi n\, -\, i \log\...

Is x = x - 1 indeterminate or undefined? What is the definition of "indeterminate"? What is the definition of "undefined"? (I think your book is using what is often called "all solution" and "no solution": try this lesson for comparison.) When you solved the ...

I would have thought that your question would be a common one because most schools (so most software that they're using) use the regular format of "(the number) plus or minus (the radical)". But I can't find anything online about changing the format of the display. Sorry.

i have a simple question here, i was reading hall and knight algebra .there it was said that if 5,a,b are multiplied to form the product 5ab then 5 is called the coeffitient of remaining factors.i here have a question. 5 is a coeff of a or b or ab?what is correct? The coefficient is the number-only...

how can I find: ((f(x+h) - f(x))/h If f(x) = 1/(square root x) Can someone help me? You can do this like they show here . Work it step by step like they show. What is f(x) for this? What is f(x + h), after simplifying? What is the subtraction, after simplifying? Please show all your work for each p...

I've seen the absolute function described as a composite function which is clearly not differentiable at x=0. However I've also seen it described as f(x)=sqrt(x^2) which I have been led to believe is differentiable at x=0. My understanding is that it's not a sharp point, it's an infinitely tiny cur...
