Stars and Bars would be applicable too, right?

Zeeshan, in the future, it would be preferable to try LaTeX or Codecogs so people can understand your statements.

I was just contemplating this- is there a general formula for approaching problems such as "find all ordered pairs to the equation x+ y+z=q, where x,y,z and q are positive integers.".

#6 Re: Help Me ! » Geometry: Consecutive sides that are congruent not a paralellogram? » 2017-01-18 23:11:19

Never type questions at night, my question was "If two pairs of consecutive sides are congruent, then it is a parallelogram.". I wanted a specific counterexample, let me check my tinkering around for some..

If a quadrilateral has two consecutive sides that are congruent, shouldn't it be a parallelogram? Tinkering around with EM implies that it might be true, so could anyone give me a counterexample?

Is it possible to create a quadrilateral with m<E=90, m<F=90, m<G= 67, and m<H = 113? Currently, a bit of tinkering around tells me no, but I would like confirmation.

I have been trying to solve and develop a comprehensive solution, but I haven't. I would profoundly appreciate the help from the jovial people of MIF.
HCEG is a rhombus formed by connecting the midpoints of the rectangle ABDF. Note that O is the center of the circle circumscribing ABDF, and that it is the intersection of the diagonals of the rhombus HCEG. Some dimensions: OG = 10, CK = 8.
Find a length of the side of the rhombus HCEG.
My diagram is currently quite convoluted and looks more unsystematic than planned out.

I did some EM work( was intuitive) and found the solution, though can't find a geometric explanation

concluded after a quick peruse of the problem/

#11 Re: Help Me ! » Sandwich theorem » 2017-01-10 08:54:47

It is utilized such that limit f(x) is between two numbers.. and multiplied by another function to obtain another one.. we see the limit and see that f(x) is compressed into a number, which must be the limit
Graphically it looks quite elegant..

Hi, I could help with you[Mjane] with comprehending the material, though I would like BB to specify what to teach you.

- Thanks, M.

hi bob bundy dose the course Edexcel cost for me to do if so how much would it be ? can you let me know so I can sore it out please ?

I'm currently within the US, so I don't necessarily know the specifics, though this seems to be the general costs.. … 5-2016.pdf.
Press Control + F and type in the box "maths" which will immediately bring you the costs of Maths subject fees.

Mandy; SteveB has been inactive since a few days ago, he will probably answer you because of his conspicuous email alerts.
EDIT: that was a trivialization of the current conditions: he hasn't posted since a few months ago..

18 I have an opinion on that but I do not think it could ever be accomplished without much bloodshed. Therefore, I hope it never happens. If it did I would remain in Florida. Let us examine the ramifications of such an event. For one thing, all my relations live in the North... They would instantly become 仇讎

仇讎? Could you define that?

Some states in the North are closer to the South politically than geographically, so I guess some would have to define it..

#25 Re: Help Me ! » The first 3 decimals of this number » 2017-01-03 05:07:40

Can you specify which value of n you mean? The integers are not specific enough, perhaps you meant a sum or limit?
And I assume it is common parlance in Europe that ,'s indicate decimals?
