The Up With Metroid Thread

Postby knapplc » Mon Jan 11, 2010 11:16 pm

Looks like you slackers missed a pretty important milestone a ways back. 21,000 posts and nobody said a word? For shame, Cafegians!

If there's a cooler guy at the Cafe, I haven't met him. He's been nothing but aces since the first time our paths crossed way back in the depths of time, and he's still here spreading good cheer throughout the Cafe.

But a milestone isn't the only story here. All is not necessarily well in the Met Life. Calculus has reared its ugly head, and our man needs some encouragement.

If you love you some Metroid, would it kill you to drop a note to him? You know you can. Just say, "I believe in you, Met."

What could be easier?

Solve the inequality:

-2 < 3x +1 < 13


Good luck

-2 < 3x +1 < 13

first subtract -1 from both sides...

-3 < 3x < 12

then divide both sides by 3....

-1 < x < 4

So x is greater than negative one, and less than 4.

I wish it was all like that. Sadly piecewise functions are not that easy. %-6


Thanks for the kind words knapp. I'm not going to beat myself up over this class, if I have to take it again, I'll take it again. That's life. ;-D

Sorry, didn't know what you were working on. Kinda hard to graph on a message board so, I don't think I'll give you one to practice, but you'll do just fine ;-D

Down with calculus! ;-D

Seriously, math wasn't my favorite subject, but I wouldn't get my computer science degree without all the math. Had to take two semesters of calculus followed by more abstract math courses like proofs and linear algebra. I kept at it and through perseverance, it wasn't all bad and it did provide a good foundation for what I'd program in later on.

Don't know what you're majoring in, Met, but if all you need is one semester of calculus, all the more reason to hang in there. ;-D
