The scenic road. Only the experienced drivers can take this path of extreme beauty.

Youvsound a lot like my brother. He just graduated from college with a degree in mechanical engineering and will be going on to get his doctorate. He tells me, "Calculus opens up a whole new horizon. You can do anything with it!" And he takes his calculus book with him on long plane rides.

Why do you need a calculus book once you've learned it?

So you can reread it and erfect your knowledge. You don't know everything in Calculus2 after only one reading.

It doubles.

Thank you! You are the first to actually give the answer.

You're welcome :)

The question sounds incomplete. Was their a diagram to go with it?

Nope. That's all you need to know to find the answer.

I will ponder on it. I am a chartered engineer and I carry out complex calculations a lot, but they relate to a real situation. These exam type questions are outside my comfort zone!

It is so much easier when they give you numbers!

That's what I normally deal with. I frequently use whole small numbers in my mind, to discover the relationship that exists between them!

That does make it easier.

I do. But I only tell people HOW to solve a problem TYPE. I don't do their homework.

Then why are you asking it?

Just tosee how many people remember this kind of thing past highschool.

I'm in high school, but I learned this in 6th grade o.o xD But I mean... What else did you expect from someone called "MathematicallyMindedFractal?" xD

I am ahead of myself in math too. I'm doing pre cal in 9th

I would have done that, too, but I wasn't there to take the EIC in 6th grade, and as such, could not take Algebra 1 in 7th. I ended up taking Geometry online in 8th alongside Geometry, and got put into Algebra 2 in 9th. A similar thing happened in 10th. My precalc teacher hated me, and didn't let me go to calculus this past year. Nie while I love statistics, I now can't take Calculus BC my senior year. I'm technically not even allowed to take AB next year, but I'm going to beg my guidance counselor.

That is the great thing about being homeschooled: we get to advance at our own pace.

:P yup. I teach myself a lot of math. I know calculus, topology, fractal geometry, and more x3

Yes, it's called doing you own homework.

I already did it. But how many people actually remember how to do this stuff out of highschool?

Unless you are planning on going into a field of work that requires you to know this; you will not need to remember yourself.

So why learn it? I mean, it's easy enough to do it with numbers, but letters? What's the point?
