Re: Can someone help me with calculus?

OK. Maybe I shouldn't have said that -3x 2 +5x+2 factors into 7/3. Like I said in the original post, it's (x-2)(x+1/3) but I wasn't thinking and skipped to plugging in 2 after you cancel the (x-2)'s, if that clears up some of the confusion. If not, I have no idea what factor you guys are talking abo...

Re: Can someone help me with calculus?

Are you referring to +-7/3? Because that's just what you get when you factor -3x2+5x+2.

Re: Can someone help me with calculus?

OK. First off, I'm now realizing that I factored the quadratic wrong. It should be 1/3, not 2/3. But that only changes the +-8/3 to +-7/3. Anyway, since |2-x|=x-2 for all x>2 which is the same as 2 + . So we use the expression with the 2-x in the denominator, leaving just -7/3 as the answer which ag...

Can someone help me with calculus?

So, my calc homework has the following problem: lim (-3x 2 +5x+2)/|2-x| x->2 + If you plug in 2, you end up with 0/0. So I decided to factor the quadratic into (x-2)(x+2/3). My memory is kind of fuzzy, but I remember doing something with the absolute values where you do the equation with the regular...

Your genetic experiment went wrong and now the super raptor is hungrier for human flesh than normal raptors. It eats you, but saves your eye for last so you can watch it eat you, bit by bit.

The raptors have an external off button for the portal gun. You fall through the portal at the speed of light and become a small pile of blood and guts on the ground.
