Can you apply the techniques learned from the solution to Challenge #1 in order to find a value for these expressions?
and, just so you know…I did these while procrastinating from studying for my calc test tomorrow…
#3 is right, but #1 and #2 are not. guess you have some more procrastination ahead of you… (=
hmmmm….well, procrastination is no longer needed…but fun is!
1) 2.414 I am not sure WHAT I was thinking the first time…I did some very dumb things….oh, silly me!
OK, you got #1 now. sorry to hear about the dumb things. (= #2 is still not right. How are you trying to solve it?
Is #2 1.264?
yes, that’s right. Now, to a real mathematician, none of these answers would be technically correct since they are all approximations (the answer to #2 is not exactly 1.264, and so on). Does anyone know the exact answers (in terms of square roots and so on)?
Ohh…this is fun. I guess it would be (3+√(21))/6?
you got it. Glad it is fun!
brentos… hallo! i must confess i didnt try any of the math problems, but i just want to say hi to you and to mrs. joyia yorgey as well… hehe that still feels weird to say!
