You can find the number with the next lower unit value and the number with the next higher unit value, then determine which is closer. If they are the same distance, we usually consider the higher one to be "closer." Your number is bracketed by 529 and 530. The distance from 529 is 0.48. The … Read more

The trapezoidal rule approximates the integral of the function f(x) on the interval [a, b] as   (trapezoidal rule)  (b-a)(f(a)+f(b))/2 Simpson's rule uses a second order interpolation to approximate that integral as   (Simpson's rule)  (b-a)(f(a) + 4f((a+b)/2) + f(b))/6 In regions where the first derivative is not substantially constant, Simpson's rule will give better … Read more

A dictionary definition is "one of two or more numbers, algebraic expressions, or the like, that when multiplied together produce a given product." That is the definition of the noun. Factor can also be a verb, in which case it means "resolve into factors." For example, we can factor the expression 2x^2 … Read more

You can finish taking the logarithms and see what falls out. You know that   log(ax^b) = log(a) + b*log(x) Using this, you can simplify your expression as follows   5log(2x) - log(x) - log(4x^2)   = 5(log(2) + log(x)) - log(x) - (log(4) + 2log(x))   = 5log(2) - log(4) + 5log(x) - log(x) … Read more

A right triangle with hypotenuse 28 cm and one side 13 cm will have the other side of length √(282 - 132) = √615 ≈ 24.8 cm. Because the base of the ladder is 9 cm from the ground, the top of the ladder will be 33.8 cm from the ground.

Sometimes the numbers work out so you can do the problem without converting to/from improper fractions. 1/6 of the project is complete, so 1 - 1/6 = 5/6 of the project remains to be completed. (5/6)*(6 3/5) = (5/6)*(6) + (5/6)*(3/5) = 5 + 3/6 = 5 1/2 5 1/2 miles of freeway must be … Read more

The following divisibility rules may be important for the nature of such a problem. For divisibility by 2, the units digit of the number should end in either 0; 2; 4; 6 or 8.For divisibility by 3, the sum of the digits of the number should be divisible by 3.For divisibility by 5, the units … Read more
