    Hello,
    I'd like to introduce a new thing to the server which is Homework help. Possibly we could get a Forum Section for this (idk mattrick), but the idea is is that you can state what Class the issue is from, and what you've done thus far to try and solve the problem. For example, say someone is taking Pre-Algebra and needs assistance, they would do something like this;
    Class: Pre-Algebra
    Problem: 4x = 8
    Work: No work :(

    Then, someone (PLEASE BE ONE PERSON AND NOT LIKE 20) can respond to it, properly showing the steps to do it. Also, if you see someone who makes an error in answering a problem, correct it in a reply to their answer and tag the person who asked the question. This isn't much use anymore because the school year is just about over, but we could get some use out of this to help people prep for Finals and whatnot. This is not limited to only Math, this is open for all subjects. If you need help on an Essay, and post a reply, don't be upset if someone doesn't respond. It's hard to answer an entire essay prompt like that, and this is 100% voluntary and not an obligation. You can help and ask questions as you please. Also, if you have any suggestions for the idea, just reply here w/ it. Would be cool to see if we could make this a big thing later on in the future.

    It's a number that is multiplied by the square root of -1, which is represented as the variable "i". Since the square root of negative 1 does not exist, it can be factored out of a number like the square root of -49 to become "i" times the square root of 49, or 7i.

    So the "number" i (which is Square root of -1) is an imaginary number. The reason it is imaginary is because you can't take the square root of a negative number (Positive x Positive and Negative x Negative both equal positive, therefore it is impossible). Say we have Square root of -2. That -2 is really -1 times 2. So now we have the Square root(-1 times 2). But that can be rewritten as i times Square root 2. Four major parts of this are the four exponents that matter:
    i^1 = Square root -1
    i^2 = -1
    i^3 =-i
    i^4 = 1
    So if we have i^32, we subtract 32 by 4 until we get either 1 2 3 or 4 in the exponent. Since 32 goes down to 4 in the exponent, i^32=1. I can clarify more when I get home if needed, but for now this is what I have.
    @Keldricc got what I missed so ty

    Class: AP Calculus AB
    Problem: A ladder 25 feet long leans against a building. If the bottom of the ladder slides away from the building horizontally at a rate of 3 ft/sec, how fast is the ladder sliding down the house when the top of the ladder is 7 feet from the ground. This is a related rates problem.

    So far I have solved for x = 24 so when I find the derivative of equation z^2 = x^2 + y^2 I can plug in x and I am given dx/dt = 3.

    I get stuck on what to do after that, my answer choices are: (a) 7/8 (b) -7/8 (c) 7/25 (d) -7/25 (e) None of the above, but I keep getting a different number and I am not sure if I am doing the problem correctly.

    Please show all work, thanks

    4x = 8
    4x/4 = 8/4
    x = 2
    I did it.

    No idea what on earth Calculus AB is (I know the AP PART YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES), but can't you just use Pythagoras here? I suppose the speed would be lineair, and you know the diagonal line and the horizontal line and thus you can calculate the vertical line.

    Please note that if Calculus involves using a calculator, please tell me and ignore above.

    Also mfw math problems actually use the American system >->

    For this problem you can't use a calculator because in calculus you need to know squares and square roots, such as 25^2 = 625. I figured the problem out though, for related rates you have to find the equation which works for the problem given and find the derivative of that equation and then solve for the derivative of the variable you are trying to solve for. Thanks though

    If it's on Great Expectations, Macbeth or Animal Farm, then I will gladly write it for you.
