Percentage Difference 2006-07-25
Sandra pose la question :

I have two numbers (1530 and 1315). How do I calculate the percentage difference.

For example: I have one loader that lifts 1530 lbs. and another loader that lifts 1315 lbs. I know the difference is 215 lbs. How much greater lift capacity does the loader that lifts 1530 lbs. have than the loader that lifts 1315 lbs.?

The formula that I used was:

1530 - 1315 = 215
215/1315 = .163498 or 16.3%

Is this correct?

Percent difference 2004-04-10
A parent pose la question :
For a school science project, my son Alex is taking measurements of plant growth at regular intervals. As part of the data, he must provide the maximum percent difference observed in the categories his team has identified.

So, for example he has six plants with four measurements each. (He has more, but I'll keep it simple) For the first plant he measured 2mm, 2.4mm, 2.9mm, and 3.2mm. For the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th plants, he has similar numbers. Is there a way to calculate the maximum percent difference between any two plants in his measurements during the project? Doing it for each combination would be tedious.

Percentage difference 2002-03-08
Tedd pose la question :
Can you give me the formulas for calculating percentage differences between two numbers? For example: if the first number is 10 and the second number is 15, then the second number is 50% larger than the first number. However, the formula to calculate that percentage won't work if the first number is greater than the second number as in the following example: The first number is 15 and the second number is 10, with the second number being 33.3% less than the first number. Or maybe I'm mistaken and the same formula will work in both situations.

Linsey pose la question :
what is the rule for working out the formula for a sequence with three lines of difference? eg.
                      
                     1, 3, 7, 15, 29 
1st line differences:  2, 4, 8, 14 
2nd line differences:    2, 4, 6 
3rd line differences:     2, 2

I cannot figure these out I was wondering if you could help me? I have no one to answer my questions.
  1. (7x2 – 3yz)2 – (7x2 + 3yz)2

  2. Use Pascal’s triangle to expand (2x – y)4

  3. 8x3 y - x3 y4

  4. (m + 3n)2 – 144

  5. 12x4 y – 16x3 y2 – 60x2 y3

Finite differences 2001-10-08
Murray pose la question :
My name is Murray and I am a 10th grade student. Me and my friend have recently discovered and proved a theorem of a relitively advanced nature. It is that the the nth difference of an nth degree equation = n! times the coefficient of the highest power. One of my teachers said this theorem is part finite and that she thinks she has seen it before, but she does not remember what it is called, at what level it is taught, who discovered it or when it was invented. I would greatly appretiate answers to any of these questions.

Difference of Squares 2001-02-22
Bruno-Pierre pose la question :
I noticed the other day that if you substract two consecutive squared positive numbers, you end up with the same result as if you add up the two numbers.

Ex. 5 and 6 (2 consecutive positive numbers)
52 = 25
62 = 36
36 - 25 = 11 (Substraction of the squared numbers)
5 + 6 = 11 (Sum of the numbers)

A more algebric view:
a2 - b2 = a + b where a and b are consecutive positive positive numbers. (b = a + 1)

I wondered if this rule had a name, and who discovered it.

A difference of squares problem. 1999-07-24
Michael and Stephanie Bixler pose la question :
If you have the equation x= n2 - m2 (ie 40= 72-32= 49-9) x must = a positive number

1) which squared numbers work as n and m
2) how does it work
3) if my teacher gave me the number for x; how could I figure out this problem

Finding a rule for a sequence 1999-02-17
Lindsey Masters pose la question :
I'm doing a maths investigation and i have a sequence which goes:-

13,16,25,32,45,56,73.

Our teacher told us we have to find a rule by looking at the differences of the terms until we find a constant. The first differences are:-

3,9,7,13,11,17.

The differences of these are:- ......

Please could you tell me how to work it out so that I could work out the rules of similar sequences.
