NY Lost Funds

 godling kmh: preferably. i don't even know l'hospital yet. we're barely getting into derivatives. japstar anybody can answer my question kmh godling : you could rewrite sqrt(x^2+2x) as a power series standr lieven: the calculation that the documentary gives results in 1 "Jesus family" in 600,000 families. they multiply this by a sample size of 1000 tombs. evilgeek godling: what limit are you trying to evaluate? japstar A certain tank can be filled by two pipes in 80 minutes. The larger pipe by itself can fill the tank in two hours less than the smaller pipe by itself.How long does each pipe take to fill the tank on its own? godling evilgeek: lim x->-inf (x+sqrt(x^2+2x)) evilgeek that clearly diverges. lieven japstar: show us your work. godling maybe it's clear to you. :) evilgeek x+sqrt(x^2+2x) >= x. kmh evilgeek : it does notevilgeek : limit is -1 standr lieven: the calculation from the documentary does not address the actual population of the region of Jerusalem at that time period. action godling looks up "diverge" godling looks up "diverge" evilgeek kmh: dude, it's positive. kmh evilgeek : note x->-oo evilgeek oh, i see. TRWBW well there is also the implicit differentiation where you find dy/dx based on f(x,y)=0 kmh magnushc : look at all sets that have exatly {1} in common, all sets that have exactly {2} in common, all that have exactly {1,2} in common and those which have nothing in commonthermoplyae started giving you the {1} in common case magnushc okey thermoplyae nothing <-> neither 1 nor 2 kmh nor {1,2}ah yesso empty intersection regarding the relation, i.e. they are allowed to have 3 or 4 in commonprobably easier this was {1} in common, {2} in common, {1,2} in common, the rest magnushc ahha, think i get it kmh was =way TRWBW magnushc: if you think you get it then you get it magnushc yeah ;) kmh so go and get it all :)actually in my experience the mathematical thought process is full of "almost got it" ...aah now i get - hmm wait - right i need to consider that, now it is fine - darn 1 sec - maybe if I - oh well ...:) magnushc hehe, point thermoplyae I don't think there's much of a gray area on this problem specifically thoughIf it hasn't clicked all the way, then it probably hasn't clicked at all kmh maybeor rather hopefully :)
