Hi;

I noticed that I can access from the http protocol as well as the https protocol. How about we force redirect to https? Since there's already a certificate installed, why not use the encryption?

Kabooby-doo!

Hi, Ganesh;

p.s. Recently, I replied to your e-mail. It was in my old inbox.

Different moderators and administrators are assigned to moderate threads within a specific section.

is it possible to change my username to something more appropriate for my math studies ?

Unfortunately, no. bobbym, used to do that. But he's not with us anymore.

Please give all answers

Can't see the questions clearly.

An advise:

Math isn't about the answer, it is about how you get to the answer (many ways).

For competitions like Kangaroo Math, you are not allowed to use calculators, think out of the box.

What I would suggest is ask David's question to one person.You would come to know whether he is knight or knave. then you ask him to list who are the knights.Two questions are enough.

Wow. Nice

thickhead wrote:

Can you ask the same person more than once?

Exactly, I was thinking about that.

To be precise,

Theminimumof minimum number of yes-no questions that he must ask the inhabitants is 5.

Themaximumof minimum number of yes-no questions that he must ask the inhabitants is 9.

But the question doesn't specify.

On a fictional island there are 10 inhabitants, who all know each other, of which 5 are knights, who always tell the truth and the rest of them are knaves, who always lie.

A visitor to the island wants to determine the 5 knaves. What is the minimum number of yes-no questions he must ask the inhabitants in order to find the 5 knaves?

Knights always tell the truth, knaves always lie. Ask them a fact question. => Do you live on an Island?

Knights will always tell the truth, hence, they will all say yes.

Knaves always lie, hence, they will all say no.

The minimum number of yes-no questions that he must ask the inhabitants is 9. (5-yes 4-no/ 5-no 4-yes) At 9, there's enough information to find out the 5 naves.

So

I have a project for my algebra 2 class and I do not know how to do it. It is make a "quadratics for dummies" article. You see I am the "dummy" in this scenario and how is the "dummy" supposed to make a article for the "dummy"? Its all rather demeaning you know. Anyways the specifics of the project are that

A. I have to create an article simplifying the directions for analyzing and solving quadratic functions taking into account complex numbers.

B. Formulate a theory for predicting when each of the described methods should be used for each particular function (I think the three ways are completing the square, factoring, and using the quadratic formula).

C. Create a graphic organizer such as a flow chart or a flow map to show your recommendations.If anyone could help me with this I would be ecstatic. Really!

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Todd,

I'll advise you to first sign up for an account here, as guest can't reply to threads.

Can you give us the specific tasks that you need to do?
