to do in the future: put a ton of people into a room (one at a time) with a radio with a joke and make the punchline a variable amount of time from the actual joke. Graph average laugh loudness vs time and find the optimal time for a punchline.

"that’s trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader"

Can anyone explain why they do n+2 instead of n+1?

They are inserting (n+1) on n’s spot in the expression for u(n+1). In both the numerator and denominator n is multiplied with 2, which when inserting (n+1) is simplified to 2n+2

QuestionWrite the augmented matrix and use row reduction to solve the following system of equations 2x+5y=5 50x=30y+1 Answer

First, we write the system with the variables on one side:

Then, the augmented matrix (where A is the coefficient matrix and vector b is the right side in the system of equations) can be written and brought to reduced row echelon form like this:

and thus, the solution to the system of equations is

Seriously cool website and a lot of fun to browse. Checkit.

Understandable introductions to advanced mathematics. The site is not only really interesting, but also gorgeous to look at.
