Can someone explain question 2A-11 (Problem Set 3) from MIT's OCW Calculus class? http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-01sc-single-variable-calculus-fall-2010/part-a-approximation-and-curve-sketching/problem-set-3/MIT18_01SC_pset2prb.pdf I don't understand the solution they come up with and can't get the problem started using what I learned via the lecture videos. Solution provided for 2A-11: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-01sc-single-variable-calculus-fall-2010/part-a-approximation-and-curve-sketching/problem-set-3/MIT18_01SC_pset2sol.pdf
|dw:1351223688245:dw| Binomial expansion can then be used to expand the binomial raised to -k.
Insert that approximation into the equation \[p=Cv ^{-k}_{0}(1+\frac{ \Delta v }{ v _{0} })^{-k}\]
Thanks a lot Stacey. I was able to follow that perfectly.
