The area enclosed by a curve and the xaxis 
20090104 

Rogerson pose la question : Find the area, S, enclosed by the curve y = x^2 + 6x  5 and the xaxis in the interval 0≤x≤4. Harley Weston lui répond. 





The area bounded by 3 curves 
20080413 

Sabahat pose la question : Hi, I have enclosed a diagram.
The diagram shows the curve y=(2x5)4. The point P has coordinates (4,81) and the tangent to the curve at P meets the xaxis at Q.
Find the area of the region (shaded in the diagram) enclosed between the curve, PQ and the xaxis . (Please note that the equation y is read as y=2x 5 whole raise to power 4.) Stephen La Rocque lui répond.

Sharon pose la question : What is the name of the curve formed by a point on the circumference of a circle that rolls on the outside of a fixed circle? This curve is used in the study of gears. Stephen La Rocque and Penny Nom lui répond. 





Intersecting a line and a curve

Senthil pose la question : between line and curve how can i
find intersection point?
could you write me the formula and explanation also sir. Penny Nom lui répond. 





Asymptotes 
20011109 

Frank pose la question :
given the function: f(x) = (x^{2}) / (x1) the correct answer to the limit of f(x) as x approaches infinity is: y = x+1 all math references point to this answer and the method they all use is long division of x1 into x^{2} however if one were to multiply both the numerator and denominator by 1/x and then take the limit, one gets: y=x how can the descrepency between the two answers be explained? Chris Fisher and Penny Nom lui répond.

20010613 

Phil pose la question :
question 1 find the area bound by the curves y = x^{2} + 2x + 3 and y = 2x + 4 question 2 Find the volume generated by rotating the curve x^{2} + y^{2} = 9 about the xaxis Harley Weston lui répond. 





The area between two curves

Esther pose la question : Find the area of the region enclosed by the graphs of y = x^{3}6x and y = 2x between their points of intersection. Harley Weston lui répond. 





Length of a line 
19991010 

Dagmara Sarudi pose la question : My question has to do with the length of a diagonal. This problem came up when I thought about the shortest distance between two points, for example walking from one point to another in my neighborhood. I can choose a zig zag route and assuming the blocks I walk are exactly the same length, it shouldn't matter what route I took, the distance I travel should still be the same when I reached my goal. If, on the other hand I could travel in a diagonal line, the distance would be shorter. But what if, in my zig zag motion, the sections get so small the route approaches a diagonal. Shouldn't it be that each separate section added together equals the value of the two original sides? Or would it suddenly equal the value of the diagonal (which, of course was shorter than the two sides added together)? What gives? Chris Fisher and Harley Weston lui répond.






Slopes of curved lines 
19990609 

Stephen Ehrler pose la question : When one plots the graphs of y=2^{x}, y=3^{x}, y=x^{x} When each of these graphs pass through point (0,1) do they have the same slope? I know they are different lines but is it possable that they have the same slope at point (0,1). Harley Weston lui répond.
