Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Alvaro Hurtado

A function is a relation in which each element of the domain is paired with exactly one element in the range. Two types of functions are the exponential functions and the logarithmic functions. Exponential functions are the functions in the form of y = ax, where ”a” is a positive real number, greater than zero… View Article

The capsize screening value

This week I’m asked to solve the following word problem in relation to a real world radical formula. Problem 103 on pages 605-606 states: To be considered safe for ocean sailing, the capsize screening value C should be less than 2 (www.sailing.com). For a boat with a beam (or width) b in feet and displacement… View Article

Real World Radical Formulas

Introduction In this paper I will be discussing on radical formulas and how to solve for the formula that is given as C = 4d^-1/3b where d is the displacement in pounds and b is the beam width in feet. The exponent of -1/3 means that the cube root of d will be taken and… View Article
