Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is the x^2 the denominator of everything else?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no just the denominator of 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok...so the last term is 5/x^2 everything else is as is..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i was thinking about rewriting it as 5x^2, but i'm not sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08x^3 6x +(1/2sqrt(x)) +(10/x^3) is what i get... maybe its right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea i got 8x^36x+1/2x^1/210x^3, should i substitute after this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep, but I think you only need the "x" value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea so just substitute the x value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and youve got a typo,,,that last term should be a (+); 5(2)=10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I get 6 as the slope... if I did it right :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0uhm i'm not sure if we're doing it right cuz the problem is actually asking me for the equation of the line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the derivative is the equation of the slope of the line; or maybe it should be in y = mx+b format?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea i think that's what they mean y=mx+b format

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = 6x +b at (x=1,y=5)?? 5 = 6(1) + b 5 = 6 + (11) y = 6x11 then

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hold up, how did u get 6 as the slope, i'm up to 86+1/2+10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f'(x) = m 86=2+10=12...ahhh, I see; I multiplied by 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05 = 12.5(1) + b 5 12.5 = b 17.5 = b y = 12.5  17.5...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0squeeze an "x" right up next to that 12.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or do they want it in Ax + By = C format?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can use the line equation to figure out a new "x value" when iterating a function solve it...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0uhm not sure about that... does that mean that y=6x11 is not it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, since i miscalculated the first time with a "6", its a bad apple...toss it out before it spoils the rest :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok then it's 86+1/2+10=12+1/2=25/2
