85. Linear Approximation. Consider the function f(x)=x^3/2 with the solution point (4,8).

(a) Use a graphing utility to graph f. Use the zoom feature to obtain successive magnifications of the graph in the neighborhood of the point (4,8). After zooming in a few times , the graph should appear nearly linear. Use the trace feature to determine the coordinates of a point near (4,8). Find an equation of the secant line S(x) through the two points.


From CALCULUS Early Transcendental Functions 6e - Ron Larson and Bruce Edwards.

I always have it near my heart <3


Lol, I have the 5th edition right above me! It was not my closest, however. Two books nearly tied for it.

    Bernard blushed uncomfortably "You see," he said, mumbling with averted eyes, "I'm rather different from most people, I suppose. If one happens to be decanted different..."
    "Yes, that's just it." The young man nodded. "If one's different, one's bound to be lonely. They're beastly to one. Do you know, they shut me out of absolutely everything? When the other boys were sent out to spend the night on the mountains--you know, when you have to dream with your sacred animal is--they wouldn't let me go with the others; they wouldn't tell me any of the secrets. I did it by myself, thought," he added. "Didn't eat anything for five and then went out one night alone into the mountain there." He pointed. Patronizingly, Bernard smiled. "And did you dream of anything?" he asked.

While I wouldn't say this verse means anything to me in particular, The Divine Comedy as a whole definitely makes me think about things such as morality, choices, consequences, life, and death. Though i'm not a religious person, I find all religions contain fascinating topics, and Dante's poem defined the christian afterlife for many people. One can learn a lot from his work, and I value knowledge in all forms. So I enjoy it because I like to learn :).

Sword Art Online Vol. 5


"Umm...well..." I struggled, trying to find the right thing to say. "This thing's basically a game where you predict where the bullet prediction will be, right?"

1. Regiospecific Synthesis of 2-allyoxy-2-cyclohexen-1-ones and -penten-1-ones
2. The Use of the Dimethyl(phenyl)silyl Group as a Latent Hydroxyl in Organic Synthesis

No first paragraph, just a table with figures and some H NMR results

2nd closest book is written in Chinese and lacks enough pages to have a page 137, but the book is basically a description of a region in China that I got while travelling there. I keep my novels written in English in another room and I probably should of gotten one of them, but I didn't want to cheat. Mainly I was too lazy to walk over, but let's go with the cheating reason.

The closest book to me was The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, and of course the creepiest part of the book just so happened to be the first paragraph on page 137...

"But he didn't that night. Or the nights that followed. And each night, he creeped a little closer to the tent, inching his way over the woodland blanket of decaying leaves and moist loamy soil until his shadow rose in the narrow opening of the tent and fell over her, and the tent was filled with her smell, and there would be the sleeping girl clutching the teddy bear and the hunter holding his gun, one dreaming of the life that was taken from her, the other thinking of the life he'd take. The girl sleeping and the finisher, willing himself to finish her."

They used to do the same sort of thing with Virgil's Aeneid; turn to a random page and read your fortune.

Step 4. The next digit of the quotient will be the largest number that can be put in both blanks so that the resulting multiplication problem is less than or equal to the current remainder. In this case the number is 3, because 83 x 3 = 249, whereas 84 x 4 = 336, which is too high. Write this number above the second digit of the next two numbers; in this case the 3 would go above the second 0. We now have a quotient of 4.3.

Mine is a... textbook. On the bright side an interesting text book :)

"where Wnc is the work done by nonconservative forces, KE is kinetic energy PEg is gravitational potential energy, and PEs is the elastic potential energy. PE, formerly used to denote gravitational potential energy alone, will henceforth denote the total potential energy of a system, including potential energies due to all conservative forces acting on the system."

An alternative approach to incapacitating and extracting your primary target and the arms dealer involves tangling with two Walker Gears that patrols the north hanger- but this is less demanding that you might suspect. Head straight for this location, crawling around the outer wall once you enter the compound via the northern gate. If you bide your time and sneak up behind the patrolling Walker Gear, you can pull the pilots out and restrain them with the standard CQC technique; tranquilizer darts are also possible, but more risky. Hide or extract heir bodies after you knock them out. With one eye always tracking the movements of the patrolling helicopter, you can then ambush the CFA official and arms dealer when they arrive to inspect the hanger - their first port of call after the initial meeting.

The book is a Metal Gear Solid V strategy guide.

My opinion is to keep this stealthy, and quick, depending on how they are positioned. Would like to use tranquilizer darts, if they are next to each other, so I can do a Fulton Recovery on them to get them to join Diamond Dogs. If they are separated, where they can't see each other. Then I'll use CQC on them, then do a Fulton Recovery on them.
