The area bounded by 3 curves 2008-04-13
From Sabahat:
Hi, I have enclosed a diagram.
The diagram shows the curve y=(2x-5)4. The point P has co-ordinates (4,81) and the tangent to the curve at P meets the x-axis at Q.

Find the area of the region (shaded in the diagram) enclosed between the curve, PQ and the x-axis . (Please note that the equation y is read as y=2x -5 whole raise to power 4.)

Angle of Intersection of Two Lines 2000-03-02
From Veronica Patterson:
I am having a real hard time trying to figure out this problem. Could you please help me! The homework question says to find the acute angle of intersection between the two lines y=3x+1 and y=(1/2)x-1. (It also says to use the results of a problem I had already figured out.) That problem was to use information from a picture shown that tan(theta sub1-theta sub2)= ((m sub2- m sub1)/(1+(m sub1 * m sub2))). I used the difference identity of tangent to figure out the answer. Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated.
