Two airplanes are flying in the air at the same height: airplane A is flying east at 250 mi/h and airplane B is flying north at 300 mi/h . If they are both heading to the same airport, located 30 miles east of airplane A and 40 miles north of airplane B , at what rate is the distance between the airplanes changing?

A right triangle is formed by two airplanes A and B moving perpendicularly to each other. The hypotenuse is the distance between planes A and B. The other sides are extensions of each plane’s path until they meet.

The distance is decreasing at 390 mi/h .

A 6-ft-tall person walks away from a 10-ft lamppost at a constant rate of 3 ft/sec . What is the rate that the tip of the shadow moves away from the pole when the person is 10 ft away from the pole?

A lamppost is shown that is 10 ft high. To its right, there is a person who is 6 ft tall. There is a line from the top of the lamppost that touches the top of the person’s head and then continues to the ground. The length from the end of this line to where the lamppost touches the ground is 10 + x. The distance from the lamppost to the person on the ground is 10, and the distance from the person to the end of the line is x.

Principles of definite integration?
ROHIT
For tangent they'll usually give an x='s value. In that case, solve for y, keep the ordered pair. then find f(x) prime. plug the given x value into the prime and the solution is the slope of the tangent line. Plug the ordered pair into the derived function in y=mx+b format as x and y to solve for B

mathematics seems to be anthropocentric deductive reasoning and a little high order logic. I only say this because I can only find two things going on which is infinitely smaller than 0 and anything over 1
David
More comprehensive list here: ***onetonline.org/find/descriptor/result/1.A.1.c.1?a=1

so how can we differentiate inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning

is there anyone who can guide me in learning the mathematics easily
Sabir
Hi Sabir first step of learning mathematics is by falling in love with it and secondly, watch videos on simple algebra then read and solved problems on it
Leo
yes sabir just do every time practice that is the solution
Henry
it will be work over to you ,u know how mind work ,it prossed the information easily when u are practising regularly
