Page1/1            A kinky curve 2016-10-06 From tammie:Kochs kinky curve is created by starting with a straight segment and replacing it with four segments, each 1/3 as long as the original segment. So, at the second stage the curve has three bends. At the next stage, each segment is replaced by four segments, and so on. How many bends does the curve have at the third stage?Answered by Penny Nom.     a^(2^n) 2010-10-22 From Tim:I am trying to understand a^(2^n). The hint they give is a^(2^(n+1)) = (a^(2^n))^2 I am writing a program that will solve a^(2^n) recursively but need to understand the power before I begin. I am currently pursuing writing (a) x (a^(2^(n-1))) where the (a^(2^(n-1))) would be the recursive function call a n approaches 0. Once n is 0, the result would be multiplied by a two more times. Anyway, explaining these powers would be appreciated. I will most likely complete the program before the answer but I want to understand the logic of these powers. Thank you, TimAnswered by Stephen La Rocque.     Finding square roots 2007-05-17 From Chandler:I would like an easy way to find the square root of a number.Answered by Gabriel Potter.     Solving x - sin(x) = constant 2000-12-29 From Keith Roble:If x is in radians, how do you solve for x, where: x-sin(x) = constant?Answered by Harley Weston.
