    Re: Maths help available here!!! Stuck somewhere?? Ask here!

    and for drawing its graph in number 4 we just have to put the values of x lets say -4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4 for instance put in the f(x) equation get the value of y and plot the graph is it like that thanks if not please solve if you can respont urgently please as you now i have very short time.

    Assalamoalaikum!! :)

    Well ...check my notes..differentiation..it's included in there..
    In short, u have to differtiate the equation.... then put dy/dx = 0
    you'll get the x coordinates put in the main eqn to get the value of...find d^2 y / dx^2 to find the nature...u can find more detail in my notes...as far as i remember i have this one added...try doing it yourself..it'll build your confidence too..when u understand and do and then get it correct... :) ;) if u need help...dont hesitate though ;)

    Re: Maths help available here!!! Stuck somewhere?? Ask here!

    I HAVE SOLVED MANY PROBLEM LIKE THESE BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT FOR D^2Y/DX^2=0 WHEN WE PUT THE VALUE OF X SO IS IT MAXIMUM OR MINIMUM OR POINT OF INFLECTION HAS A VERY SPECIAL CASE.

    Re: Maths help available here!!! Stuck somewhere?? Ask here!

    THEN WHAT ABOUT THE PROBLEM F(X)=2X^3-12X^2+24X+6 EVEN IN THIS ONE WE GET F DOUBLE DASH(X) =0 THEN WHEN WE TAKE X=-1 AND X=1 SO WE GET BOTH NEGATIVE VALUES PLEASE EXPLAIN

    Re: Maths help available here!!! Stuck somewhere?? Ask here!

    AND SO THE ANSWER FOR THE ONE YOU POSTED IS MINIMUM AS D^2Y/DX^2 CHANGES FROM NEGATIVE TO POSITIVE MEANING MAXIMA TO MINIMUM AND THE VALUES WOULD BE (0,1)

    Re: Maths help available here!!! Stuck somewhere?? Ask here!

    This was a question i encountered in our Co-ordinate geometry class . I found the co-ordinates of one vertex but equating the equations by there's no way except the graph work i think this can be solved !! It might seem easy to you guys but its given me a hell already !! :x

    The equations of two sides of a square are y = 3x - 1 and x + 3y -6 = 0. If ( 0, -1) is one vertex of the square find the coordinates of the other vertices.

    :: Core Maths 3rd Edition; Pg 91, Q 11.

    Answers = ( 9/10 , 17/10 ) <-- Found it !!
    Other two can be
    Either ( -18/10 , 26/10 ) and ( -27/10 , -19/10 )
    Or ( 36/10 , 8/10 ) and ( 27/10, -19/10) !!

    please help me solve this problem with all working thanks
    A(7,2) and c(1,4) are two vertices of the square ABCD
    (A)FIND THE EQUATION OF THE DIAGONAL BD
    (B)FIND THE COORDINATES OF B AND OF D
