History of Calculus

Calculus is an integral part of the mathematics world. Various mathematicians coming from all parts of the world have shaped this theorem but the two main contributors are Sir Isaac Newton and Wilhelm Von Leibniz. The reason they are considered the inventors of Calculus is because they were able to give a unified approach to tangent and area problems unlike the others who used specific methods. Both of these mathematicians developed general concepts Newton was associated with the fluxion and the fluent as for Leibniz, he produced the differential and the integral. Isaac Newton was a self-taught mathematic student who studied at Trinity College in Cambridge starting in 1661. He shaped his work in optics, celestial mechanics and mathematics, including…

Real world Radical Formulas

Quadratic functions are perhaps the best example of how math concepts can be combined into a single problem. To solve these, rules for order of operations, solving equations, exponents, and radicals must be used. Because multiple variables are involved and affect the outcome, quadratics are extension of functions as well. I am to solve problem numbers 56 on page 666-667 (Dugoplski, 2012). Maximum profit. A chain store manager has been told by the min office the daily profit, p, is 1 related to the number of clerks working that day. X, according to the function p= -25x^2 +300x. We need to figure out the number of clerks that will maximize the profit, and what the profit maximum possible profit will be….
