I have an assignment due where I have to intergrate sin(x)/((1 + x^2)^2) by substuting u = 1/(1 + x^2) and I have no idea how to do it? anyone got any ideas.

if f(x) = 1/(x+1), prove that f^2(x) = (x+1)/(x+2).

Hence find an expression for f^3(x)

I really didn't get it, so... if there's anyone out there that could explain it, please do.

Thank you.

This is such a stupid question but I just wanna make sure-

10(n-1)²
=
10n²-20n+100

Haha, is that right??

Does anyone one know the rules for combing Differential Equations?

Combining

(2)
\frac{dj}{dx} = -C'\frac{dV}{dt} ;

and

(3)
\frac{dV}{dx}=-L'\frac{dj}{dt} ;

I need to get:

L'C'\frac{d^{2}V}{dt^{2}} = \frac{d^{2}V}{dx^{2}} ;

L' and C' are conductance and capacitance per unit length, and d is intended to represent lower case delta.

The problem concerns transmission lines.

Loscha's great calculator sell off continues. Selling my TI-89 Titanium graphing calculator. In excellent condition.

The most powerful calculator TI make that will fit in your pocket!
It should cost $20au to post internationally.

What calculators do you own and use?

I have (and use)
Texas Instruments:
TI-84+, TI-89 Titanium, TI-30X IIB (a normal scientific, I have the white/silvery one, but, would love to get a purple/green/blue one, too) and a TI-80 which I got for $5 at a hock shop because it was cute and twee and baby sized.
Casio:
FX-100d quite a rare one. I have 2. It has hex, milli micro nano pico kilo mega symbols on some buttons (very bloody useful for electronics engineering)

Slide Rules:
Three, various kinds. Favourite is a Hemmi (Earnest) my then best friend got me from an op shop she worked at (with it's manual).

Computer:
A really old version of Derive (dos), copied from the computers at my high school back in 1991.
I'm starting to get into YACAS, which I am finding useful.
I've used dodgies of Matlab and Mathematica, but, I'm not good enough at Math to really get maximum value from them.

OK, they're not much, but, I thought I'd make some ditzy banners for people to put on their userinfo if they felt compelled to do so. They are made with TI calculator fonts.

Hi all, my name is loscha.
I like mathematics.
I'm not extremely good at it, I don't have a degree, but, I enjoy it.
I enjoy helping other people with what I can.

This is a community for people to help others with (probably simple) math problems.

Not everyone knows how to use a normal calculator to work out what 17.25% discount on $35.50 is.

Hopefully, We can help.

I personally am a Wikipedian, and a Texas Instruments graphing calculator user, and somewhat of a collector of old calculators.
I bet I could add up the change in your purse very fast.
