1. ### Absolute Value Problem

It has to be an error in the textbook, another reason to think this is because they even forgot to put the end bracket for the 2(1+cos(..... Thanks for your help, I went through your working out and it seems fine, they obviously forgot to put "=a(t)" before the "2|cos(PItT)|"
2. ### Absolute Value Problem

do you reckon it's an error in the textbook?
3. ### Absolute Value Problem

I need to find the absolute value of b(t): b(t)=a(t)[1+e^{-j2\pi tT}] Here is the answer in the textbook: \therefore \left | b(t) \right |=\left | a(t) \right |\sqrt{2(1+cos(2\pi tT)}2|cos(\pi tT)| However I got a different answer when working it out, and can't understand how they got to that...
4. ### Coordinate Geometry Problem

dude did u read what i wrote? I didn't need help on the question, I got it right assuming D was closer to the origin (1,3) (which is totally fine). I was just wondering why my answer didn't match the answer in the book. There was nothing in the question that said the letters need to go around...
5. ### Coordinate Geometry Problem

I know it's an easy question, the only reason i posted it here was coz i was confused why the book had a different answer, both answers are correct depending on where you consider D(x,y) to be. btw I'm a maths tutor so that's why I put this question up.
6. ### Coordinate Geometry Problem

I'll be 24 in June, did my HSC in 2005. I got the question right if you consider D to be close to the origin, but strictly speaking the letters should be in alphabetical order around the paralellogram. And d/w about the complex plane stuff, I did all that in my engineering degree.
7. ### Coordinate Geometry Problem

I got the right answer now. Thanks nigga20101, I put D(x,y) in the wrong place when drawing my parallelogram, ofcourse the letters have to go in order. My first answer is also correct if you don't worry about the order of the letters around the parallelogram.
8. ### Coordinate Geometry Problem

ohexploitable you said that (-3,5) is the right answer, can you pls show your working? Can you also show me why my working out is wrong?
9. ### Coordinate Geometry Problem

mAD will be the same as mCB since they are parallel lines. So then we can easily find AD since we have point A and the gradient. Likewise for mBD, the gradient will be the same as mAC since they are parallel lines and we have point A, so with that point and knowing the gradient we know the line.
10. ### Coordinate Geometry Problem

How did you get your answer? I tried to find the equation of the two lines which run through D(x,y) and used simultaenous equations to find D, I can't see where I went wrong in my working out.
11. ### Coordinate Geometry Problem

ABCD is a parallelogram. The coordinates of A,B and C are (-1,4), (4,6) and (2,7) respectively. Find the coordinates of D. I got D(1,3) but the answer says: D(-3,5) Working out: mAD = (7-6)/(2-4) = -1/2 AD: y = (-1/2)x + 7/2 mBD = (7-4)/(2+1) = 1 BD: y = x + 2 Find the intersection which...
12. ### unusual graph-please help

minor point? I think it's a major point since without using the brackets you get 2 totally different expressions! In the exam I doubt the marker is going to think 'oh I know what the student meant', I'm pretty sure the student would get 0 for writing the expression without brackets.
13. ### unusual graph-please help

everyone please remember to use brackets, what you have just written is this: x+\frac{2}{x}-1 If you meant to write that then that's ok, but if you meant to write this: \frac{x+2}{x-1} then you need to write it like this: (x+2)/(x-1)
14. ### Circle Equation Question

thanks Drongoski, haha u beat me by 2 mins!
15. ### Circle Equation Question

This is actually an easy question, can't believe noone's given the answer yet: If the circle touches the x and y axes, then the centre is going to be (h,k) where h=k. The point where it touches the y axis is (0,k), the point where it touches the axis is (h,0), subbing these along with (1,2)...
16. ### Circle Equation Question

You just want to express your concern about some random person you don't know not being good enough to be a tutor? Or do you actually have an answer to the question? BTW you're wrong, there are 2 circles, one little one, and one larger one which is flipped.
17. ### Circle Equation Question

A circle touches the +ve x and y axes and also passes through the point (1,2). Determine the centre and radius of all such circles. The question says 'of all such circles' but shouldn't there just be only 1 circle with this description? I tried to work it out but I didn't know to get exact...
18. ### Engineering Maths

Depending on what uni he gets in to, he will actually need to know sequences and series. But Omnipotent, the main thing you will need to know is calculus, algebra, trig, curve sketching, d/w too much about probability etc.
19. ### Engineering Maths

It might be hard to get into engineering then because usually the requirement is at least 2unit maths (nearly always recommended 3unit maths). If you do some how get into an engineering degree (it could still be possible, have a look at different courses on the net) then like I said before...
20. ### Engineering Maths

ok, so you're doing General maths are you? It could be hard to get into an engineering degree without at least having done 2unit mathematics. But it must be possible coz I know there are some ppl in my year who only did general in yr 12 and are now doing engineering at UTS. If you enjoy maths...
