#1 Help Me ! » The Perplexing Dimensions of The Rhombus. » Yesterday 00:57:42

Replies: 2

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/

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.

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..

#17 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?

In triangle abc the angle a is three times the size of that at b and half the size of the angle at c.
Clarify, is b half the size of c or a is half the size of c?? Misplaced modifiers are confusing..

The (i.e, vertical)perpendicular distance between both opposing windows is 12 ft.

I like clarity on this point.Is it not horizontal distance between opposing windows?And what is the value of 'g' in fps units? I vaguely remember it as 32 ft/sec^2. Is it right? I am used to S.I. units.

I see that clarity is necessary for answering these questions, it is horizontal distance, the force of gravity is approximately equal to 31 ft/sec^2.
