A range hood 2017-12-04
From Chuck:
I'm building a custom range hood and can't seem to get the angles correct where the front and side panels intersect.
I saw a similar post but there's no way I can do the calculations for a Wolfram Alpha!

Here are the dimensions that I have (in inches)...

Base - Front 29 7/16" x side 19 3/16"
Top - Front 10" x side 9"
Front Panel Length (from base to top on an angle) 21"
Side Panel Length (from base to top on an angle) - 17 9/16" Vertical distance from the base to the top 14 1/4 inches.

Any help finding the bevel/miter of the two front corners where the sides meet the front panel would be greatly appreciated.

I will need the angle for the saw in degrees.

Regards, Chuck

How many oranges? 2012-10-06
From Rodger:

Question from Rodger, a teacher:

How Many Oranges?
Marjorie, Colleen, and Bob picked oranges together. They were tired after picking a large number of oranges and so fell asleep. Marjorie woke first and decided to take her third of the oranges and head home. She counted the oranges, and found that the number was divisible by 3 if she took one of the oranges first. Marjorie took one orange and then took one-third of the remaining oranges. She left quietly.
Bob awoke a short time later, noticed that Colleen was sleeping, and presumed Marjorie had gone for a walk. He decided to head home because he wasn't feeling well. Not realizing that anyone had left, he counted the oranges and found that the number of oranges was two more than a number that could be easily divided by 3. So he took the two extra oranges and then one-third of what was left. He left without waking Colleen and without waiting for Marjorie to return.
Colleen finally awoke and wondered where her friends had gone. She assumed they were both busy somewhere nearby. Before she left, she counted the oranges and was surprised at how small the number was. She found that the number of oranges was one more than a multiple of three, so she took the extra orange and one third of those remaining.

1. What was the total number of oranges the friends picked?
2. How many oranges were left behind when Colleen departed?
3. Is more than one answer possible for the total number of oranges? If so, what other numbers are possible? Explain.
4. Based on the values you found in problem 3, determine a reasonable solution to the problem. Explain your answer.
5. Is it possible that five oranges remained after Colleen took her share? Explain.
6. Could there have been six oranges left after Colleen departed? What about 46 oranges initially? Explain
7. Find a pattern that gives all the possible numbers of oranges that the friends picked. Explain your pattern

5. Is it possible that five oranges remained after Colleen took her “share”? Explain. 6. Could there have been six oranges left after Colleen departed? What about 46 oranges initially? Explain 7. Find a pattern that gives all the possible numbers of oranges that the friends picked. Explain your pattern

Building a custom range hood 2011-10-08
From Bill:
I'm building a custom range hood for a customer with special order material that matches their newly installed cabinets and I need it to be perfect. The hood is basically a pyramid but the 4th side is the flat wall at the back and a flat, rectangular top. I need to calculate the bevel and miter of the three sides but I never was very good with geometry functions (although I am fairly good with other math fields). I either need the calculations from you at least (shudder) a formula or set of formulas so that I can calculate them myself.

0123456789 2009-03-25
From Dr.:
Many years ago I discovered that there are 33 numbers which, when multiplied by 0123456789, simply rearrange the digits. Surprisingly (to me at least) is the fact that the digits of all of those 33 numbers add up to one of the 6 "cardinal" numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8. For example 6 + 2 = 8 and 62 X 0123456789 = 7654320918 etc.
Another interesting (to me) fact is that only the cardinal numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8 rearrange the digits in the number 9876543210.
My question is: "Is this known to anyone but me and the people I have told?"

Percent change between two value ranges 2007-11-28
From Joe:
How do you calculate a percent change between tow value ranges - for instance if I project a range for 2007 to be between 100 and 120 and a range for 2008 to be between 120 and 140, how do I calculate the estimated increase between the range? Is it 0% to 40% (taking the two inside values rto calculate the minimum and the two outside values rto calculate the maximum?)
The range of a function 2007-11-12
From Camille:
Hi There,

I am taking a calculus class by correspondence and part of the introduction is learning how to find domain and range of functions. I understand how to find the domain. I also understand that if you find the inverse of the equation and solve for x to find the domain it will give you the range because the domain of the inverse is equivalent to the range of the original equation. However when trying to apply this method to complicated questions (ie: square root in the denominator) I get confused and can't solve for x.

Composition of functions 2002-04-06
From Yvonne:
In our new text book, the following question occurs: State the domain and range of g(f(x))given that f(x) = -x2 - 4 and g(x) = sqrt(x)

The range of f(x), x<=-4, is the domain of g(x). BUT, there is no solution in the Real numbers for g(f(x))= sqrt(-x2 - 4).

In the solutions it says that this is not a function and therefore does not have a domain or range. Is it a relation? Is it anything?

From Julie:
What is the difference between Mean and Average? My thinking is the average, is the equal to the sum of all numbers divided by the number of numbers added together. But the mean, I think should be calculated by adding the largest and smallest numbers in the set and them dividing by 2.

Approximations 1999-12-20
Long-time ago I red an article about surprizing (and in a way frustrating) results in math, for example the limit of a nicely defined infinite series which was believed to be a simple rational number, but later was determined to be a transcendent number that missed the rational value by an incredibly small amount (so for example the limit proved to be 2.75000...00137.. with a lot of 0's in between). I cannot find that article anymore, so i was wondering if you have any such examples, or you can point to any relevant information source?

The Range of a Function. 1997-09-12

Math Is Book 6 (Ebos/Tuck) question 5(b) gives a surprising answer at the back of the book..

The question is:
Indicate the domain and range for this: y = sqr(x-9) (Square root of)

The answer for the domain is x>=9 which is not surprisingly, but the range is y>=0, yER ... which I could understand if you were not allowed to transform the equation into x as the subject..

But all example on the facing page DO TRANSFORM the equation at will with x and/or y as the subject..

Can you explain this...
