However, How to Calculate a Square Root by Hand: 21 steps (with pictures) Edit Article CalculatorUsing Prime FactorizationFinding Square Roots Manually Edited by NatK, Maluniu, Luís Miguel Armendáriz, Webster and 44 others In the days before calculators, students and professors alike had to calculate square roots by hand. Several different methods have evolved for tackling this daunting process, some giving a rough approximation, others giving an exact value.

Soon, I will whip them into a more coherent form. In collegiate calculus, you probably learned about something called Taylor series. You can use Taylor series to make polynomial approximations of infinitely-differentiable functions. If you take the Taylor series out infinitely, you actually have the function. The general form for a Taylor series is this: Graduate Program in Mathematics, Study guides for Comp Exams, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Demystifying the Natural Logarithm (ln) After understanding the exponential function, our next target is the natural logarithm.

Demystifying the Natural Logarithm (ln)

Given how the natural log is described in math books, there’s little “natural” about it: it’s defined as the inverse of e^x, a strange enough exponent already. But there’s a fresh, intuitive explanation: The natural log gives you the time needed to reach a certain level of growth. Suppose you have an investment in gummy bears (who doesn’t?) Main Page - Exampleproblems. Untitled. Two by Two. Essentially the technique converts the first factor into binary, multiplies each of its constituents by the second factor, and sums the results.

Two by Two

Imagine that each line is associated with a power of 2: the first line with 20, the second with 21,and so on. The business in the first column, halving the first factor successively and crossing out those lines with even numbers, effectively reduces the first factor to its binary constituents — here, the lines that remain are those associated with 20, 25, and 26, and, sure enough, 20 + 25 + 26 = 97. The Thirty Greatest Mathematicians. This is primarily a list of Greatest Mathematicians of the Past, but I use 1930 birth as an arbitrary cutoff, and three of the "Top 100" are still alive as I write.

Geometry was extremely important to ancient societies and was used for surveying, astronomy, navigation, and building. Geometry, as we know it is actually known as Euclidean geometry which was written well over 2000 years ago in Ancient Greece by Euclid, Pythagoras, Thales, Plato and Aristotle just to mention a few. The most fascinating and accurate geometry text was written by Euclid, and was called Elements. Euclid's text has been used for over 2000 years!

Geometry is about the shape and size of things. No, really, pi is wrong: The Tau Manifesto by Michael Hartl. Elementary Calculus: Example 3: Inscribing a Cylinder Into a Sphere. Find the shape of the cylinder of maximum volume which can be inscribed in a given sphere. The shape of a right circular cylinder can be described by the ratio of the radius of its base to its height.

This ratio for the inscribed cylinder of maximum volume should be a number which does not depend on the radius of thesphere. For example, we should get the same shape whether the radius of the sphere is given in inches or centimeters. Let r be the radius of the given sphere, x the radius of the base of the cylinder, h its height, and V its volume. First, we draw a sketch of the problem in Figure 3.6.4. Algebra Help Math Sheet.
