...he states that x/sqr(x) is equal to sqrt(x) which i obviously believe i typed x/sqrt(x) in wolfram alpha and it also gave me the result sqrt(x) but i don't understand why What did you get when you did the simplification? You noted that: \sqrt{ x^2\,}\, =\, x (for non-negative x) so: x\, =\, \lef...

I don't understand math; that's why I'm here. I thought that I was doing pemdas exactly...addition comes before subtraction. It seems to me that I'm doing exactly what they gave me. No. As explained in ( this ) lesson, addition and subtraction are at the same "level" and are done at the s...

I am stuck on figuring out why the following function is a increasing function when I read a paper. The function is following f(x)\, =\, \dfrac{(x\, -\, 1)\, c^x\, -\, 2x\, c^{x-1}\,+\,x\,+\,1}{2^x\,-\,x\,-\,1}, \, \mbox{ with }\, 1\, <\, c\, <\, 2\, \mbox{ and }\, x\, >\, 2. This a...

You are correct.

Is there a relation between the fact that the derivative of x^2 is 2x and that the difference between 1,4,9,16, ... is 3, 5, 7, 9, ...? And why is the difference always 2? Are you perhaps referring to what is discussed on this page starting a little past halfway down the page? One might find it use...
