A question about the empty set 2018-06-17
Andrey pose la question :
Hello there!
I got that an empty set is a subset of every set.
There is a question.
Is an empty set an element of every set?
∅ ⊆ {x}True
∅ ∈{x}?
Sorry if the question is easy. A set theory is a bit confusing.

The inverse square law 2018-06-05
Amy pose la question :

Question about inverse square law ;

Hi, I'm trying to understand some nuances about this law and
have been reading about it a lot online and trying out some homework
for personal interest (hobby ) - not school related.

I understand that the simple formula is ; 1/d^2

I was wondering about what appears to be an oddity to me, that
I came across when I was working with a test example I found at this
link ;


The problem that caught my interest was this one on that page ;

"1) If a bright flashlight has a light intensity of 15.0 candela at a distance 1.00 m from the lens, what is the intensity of the flashlight 100.0 m from the lens?"

So I have a few different questions about this, but the most important
one is, what does it mean if we replace the "1" in ; 1/d^2 with a different value such as a ratio in the form of a decimal value, so instead we have something like this ;



Does this ratio represent a curve then?

I am thinking that the "1" in the normal formula represents a straight line

Some of the links I was researching ;

Taking 6 pills 2018-05-29
Dave pose la question :
My motives are simple, I want to get revenge on my brother who, unbeknown to me, repeatedly cheated when we played on-line Scrabble! Can you help? - he has posed this question knowing that I'll struggle to get the solution. Question: He is taking 6 pills a day, if he takes the pills in a different order each day, how long will it be before he takes the pills in the same order on the same date again? I think leap years might come in to it! Will I confess to using you guys? - I'll think about that one.

Monthly Pension 2018-05-28
Kenneth pose la question :


I have a question regarding how the units cancel in the following:

A company uses the following calculation to determine the monthly payment for its employees as they retire:

1.1% * average 5 years highest salary * years of service

If an employee worked 33 years and his average 5 year salary is $30,705.17, what is his monthly payment?

I used the following to determine his monthly payment, but I am not sure how the units cancel especially the years.

1.1% * $30,705.17 * 33 years divided by 12 months/year

I determined his payment as $928.83 per month, but the year units do not cancel unless the 1.1% is per year.

Is the correct calculation 1.1%/year * $30,705.17 * 33 years divided by 12 months/year so that the units cancel properly?

The $\$30,705.17$ is an average for 5 years of working. It is not $30,705.17 per year.

I thank you for your assistance.
