  • Jess received marks of 87, 93, 86 on three successive tests. What grade must she received on a fourth test in order to have an average of 90?

    Best answer: One strategy you can use is to look at the deficit or surplus relative to the average score of 90. .. score of 87 → deficit of 3 .. score of 93 → surplus of 3 . . . balances the deficit, so the average of the first two tests is 90 .. score of 86 → deficit of 4 In order for Jess to make up her deficit of 4 marks... show more
    Best answer: One strategy you can use is to look at the deficit or surplus relative to the average score of 90.
    .. score of 87 → deficit of 3
    .. score of 93 → surplus of 3 . . . balances the deficit, so the average of the first two tests is 90
    .. score of 86 → deficit of 4
    In order for Jess to make up her deficit of 4 marks relative to the desired average, she must score 4 more than that average: 90 +4 = 94.

    _____
    The "conventional" approach would be to realize that the average is the total of scores divided by their number. You want
    .. (87 +93 +86 +T)/4 = 90
    .. 266 +T = 360 . . . . . . . . . . multiply by 4
    .. T = 360 -266 = 94 . . . . . . subtract 266
    Jess must score 94 on her fourth test to have an average of 90.

  • Write the equation of the line which passes through the points (-2,5) and (-5,3) linear equations?

    Best answer: (x1,y1) = (-2,5) (x2,y2) = (-5,3) slope = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) = (3-5) /(-5+2) = -2/-3 = 2/3 Equation of the line is y=(2/3) x + b plug in x=-2 and y=5 y = (2/3) x + b 5 = (2/3) (-2) + b 5 = -4/3 + b multiply both sides by 3 15 = -4 + 3b 3b = 15+4 3b= 19 b=19/3 y = (2/3) x + 19/3 ---- slope-intercept form... show more
    Best answer: (x1,y1) = (-2,5)
    (x2,y2) = (-5,3)

    slope = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) = (3-5) /(-5+2) = -2/-3 = 2/3

    Equation of the line is y=(2/3) x + b
    plug in x=-2 and y=5

    y = (2/3) x + b
    5 = (2/3) (-2) + b
    5 = -4/3 + b
    multiply both sides by 3
    15 = -4 + 3b
    3b = 15+4
    3b= 19
    b=19/3

    y = (2/3) x + 19/3 ---- slope-intercept form <----------

    You can also write the equation in standard form

    multiply both sides by 3
    3y = 2x +19
    -2x+3y = 19 ---- standard form or <-------------

    Best answer: Note to poster:
    This is a fun but infuriating integral. I made several attempts (double integrals, differentiating under the integral sign) on this the night before to no success. One of my attempts was very similar to John's solution, but I too made some error that I could not find. This should finally do it.
    -------
    First of all, we can rewrite this integral as a double integral:
    ∫(x = 0 to 1) (ln(1+x²)/(1+x)) dx
    = ∫(x = 0 to 1) [x²/(1+x²y)]/(1+x) {for y = 0 to 1} dx
    = ∫(x = 0 to 1) ∫(y = 0 to 1) [x² / ((1+x²y) (1+x))] dy dx.

    Now, we reverse the order of integration:
    ∫(y = 0 to 1) ∫(x = 0 to 1) [x² / ((1+x²y) (1+x))] dx dy
    = ∫(y = 0 to 1) ∫(x = 0 to 1) (1/(1+y)) * [(x-1)/(1+x²y) + 1/(1+x)] dx dy, by partial fractions
    = ∫(y = 0 to 1) (1/(1+y)) * [∫(x = 0 to 1) (x/(1+x²y) - 1/(1+x²y) + 1/(1+x)) dx] dy
    = ∫(y = 0 to 1) (1/(1+y)) [(1/(2y)) ln(1+x²y) - (1/√y) arctan(x√y) + ln(1+x)) {for x = 0 to 1}] dy
    = ∫(y = 0 to 1) (1/(1+y)) [(1/(2y)) ln(1+y) - (1/√y) arctan(√y) + ln 2] dy.

    Distributing:
    ∫(y = 0 to 1) [(1/(2y(1+y))) ln(1+y) - (1/√y) arctan(√y)/(1+y) + ln(2)/(1+y)] dy.

    By partial fractions, 1/(y(y+1)) = 1/y - 1/(y+1).
    So, we obtain
    ∫(y = 0 to 1) [(ln(1+y)/(2y) - ln(1+y)/(2(1+y))) - (1/√y) arctan(√y)/(1+y) + ln(2)/(1+y)] dy.

    Integrate each term:
    (i) ∫(y = 0 to 1) ln(1+y)/(2(1+y))
    = ∫(u = 0 to ln 2) (1/2) u du, letting u = ln(1+y) and du = dy/(y+1)
    = (1/4)(ln²2).

    (ii) ∫(y = 0 to 1) (1/√y) arctan(√y) dy/(1+y)
    = ∫(u = 0 to 1) 2 arctan u du/(1+u²), letting u = √y ==> y = u², dy = 2u du
    = ∫(w = 0 to π/4) 2w dw, letting w = arctan u, dw = du/(1+u²).
    = π²/16.

    (iii) ∫(y = 0 to 1) ln(2) dy/(1+y)
    = ln(2) ln(1+y) {for y = 0 to 1}
    = ln²2

    (iv) [The tough one...]
    ∫(y = 0 to 1) ln(1+y) dy/(2y)
    = (1/2) ∫(y = 0 to 1) ln(1+y) dy/y
    = (1/2) ∫(y = 0 to 1) [Σ(n = 1 to ∞) (-1)ⁿ⁺¹ yⁿ/n] dy/y, via power series for ln(1+y)
    = (1/2) ∫(y = 0 to 1) [Σ(n = 1 to ∞) (-1)ⁿ⁺¹ yⁿ⁻¹/n] dy
    = (1/2) Σ(n = 1 to ∞) (-1)ⁿ⁺¹ yⁿ/n² {for y = 0 to 1}
    = (1/2) Σ(n = 1 to ∞) (-1)ⁿ⁺¹/n²
    = (1/2) (π²/12); see below
    = π²/24.

    For the next to last step above, note that
    Σ(n = 1 to ∞) (-1)ⁿ⁺¹/n²
    = 1 - 1/2² + 1/3² - 1/4² + 1/5² - 1/6² + ...
    = (1 + 1/2² + 1/3² + 1/4² + 1/5² + 1/6² + ...) - 2(1/2² + 1/4² + 1/6² + ...)
    = (1 + 1/2² + 1/3² + ...) - 2 * (1/2²)(1 + 1/2² + 1/3² + ...)], by factoring
    = (1 - 1/2)(1 + 1/2² + 1/3² + ...)
    = (1/2)(π²/6), since Σ(n = 1 to ∞) 1/n² = π²/6
    = π²/12.
    ----
    Putting this all together,
    ∫(x = 0 to 1) (ln(1+x²)/(1+x)) dx
    = ∫(y = 0 to 1) [(ln(1+y)/(2y) - ln(1+y)/(2(1+y))) - (1/√y) arctan(√y)/(1+y) + ln(2)/(1+y)] dy
    = π²/24 - (1/4)(ln²2) - π²/16 + ln²2
    = (3/4)(ln²2) - π²/48.
    -------
