How could you use Descartes' rule and the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra to predict the number of complex roots to a polynomial as well as find the number of possible positive and negative real roots to a polynomial? |

Descartes rule is really helpful because it eliminates the long list of possible rational roots and you can tell how many positives or negatives roots you will have. Fundamental Theorem of Algebra finds the maximum number of zeros which includes real and complex numbers.

For example:

f(x)= x^3 – 6x^2 + 13x – 20

Yes Yes Yes ( the sign changes from one to the other)
so now we can have 3 or 1 positives.

now to find the negative

f(-x)= -x^3 - 6x^2 – 13x -20

No No No ( the signs did not change at all)
therefore, we have 0 negatives.

Then whenever you make your list, you can eliminate all of the negatives since it would be included in your answer. Since the degree is three, we are going to have three zeros. Positive | 3 | 1 |

Negative | 0 | 0 |
Imaginary | 0 | 2 |
In this example, your answer could have all three positives number or one positive number and two imaginary.

Now let's try another!

f(x)= -x^4 – 2x^3 – 8x + 2

No No Yes (one positive)

f(-x)= -x^4 + 2x^3 + 8x +2

Yes No No (one negative)
Positive | 1 |
Negative | 1 |
Imaginary | 2 |
In this example,the only roots you can have is one positive and one negative the other two are imaginary since the degree of this polynomial is four.

In a certain distribution, the mean is 50 with a standard deviation of 6. Use Chebyshev's theorem to tell the probability that a number lies in the following interval. Round your results to the nearest whole percent.
2) Between 35 and 65
Ans: we have z = (35-50)/6 = -2.5 and z = (65-50)/6 = 2.5
So 35 and 65 lies within 2.5 standard deviation of mean
By Chebyshev’s theorem we have the probability as 1 -1/k2 , where k is the standard deviation within which the numbers
In this case k = 2.5...

ANALYSIS
Physics has a lot of topics to cover. In the previous experiments, we discussed Forces, Kinematics, and Motions. In this experiment, the focus is all about Friction. Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other. There are several types of friction like fluid friction which describes the friction between layers of a viscous fluid that are moving relative to each other; dry friction which resists relative lateral motion of two solid surfaces in contact and is subdivided into static friction between non-moving surfaces, and kinetic friction between moving surfaces; lubricated friction which is a case of fluid friction where a fluid separates two solid surfaces; skin friction which is a component of drag, the force resisting the motion of a fluid across the surface of a body; internal friction is the force resisting motion between the elements making up a solid material while it undergoes deformation and sliding friction.
When surfaces in contact move relative to each other, the friction between the two surfaces converts kinetic energy into heat. This property can have dramatic consequences, as illustrated by the use of friction created by rubbing pieces of wood together to start a fire. Kinetic energy is converted to heat whenever motion with friction occurs, for example when a viscous fluid is stirred. Another important consequence of many types of friction can be wear,...

The case between Beauty and Stylish involves concept of a valid contract, pre-contractual statements, express term and misrepresentation.
A valid contract is established between Beauty and Stylish when an offer is accepted and there is intention for both parties to create legal relations. An offer refers to the expression of willingness of the offerer to be contractually bound by an agreement if his or her offer is properly accepted. It has to be clear and certain in terms. It must also be communicated to the offeree before it is being accepted. In addition, the acceptance has to be unqualified, unconditional and made by a positive act. In the case of Beauty and Stylish, a positive act refers to the signing of the contract. All terms of the offer must be accepted without any changes and cannot be subjected to any condition, taking effect only upon fulfillment of that condition. When Beauty and Stylish enter into the agreement, they must intend to bind and bound legally to each other by their agreement. This is the intention to create legal relations between two parties. In the meanwhile, this contract must possess consideration. A contract must therefore be a two-sided affair, with each side providing or promising to provide something of value in exchange for what the other is to provide.
Every contract, whether oral or written, contain terms. The terms of a contract set out the rights and duties of the parties. Terms are the promises and undertakings given by each...

Four Decades of the Defence of
Australia: Reflections on Australian
Defence Policy over the Past 40 Years
Hugh White
The serious academic study of Australian defence policy can be said to have
begun with the publication of a book by the SDSC’s founder, Tom Millar, in
1965. The dust jacket of that book, Australia’s Defence, posed the following
question: ‘Can Australia Defend Itself?’ Millar thus placed the defence of Australia
at the centre of his (and the SDSC’s) work from the outset. Much of the SDSC’s
effort over the intervening 40 years, and I would venture to say most of what
has been of value in that effort, has been directed toward questions about the
defence of the continent. This has also been the case for most of the work by
Australian defence policymakers over the same period. In this chapter I want
to reflect on that work by exploring how the idea of the ‘defence of Australia’
has evolved over that time, and especially how its role in policy has changed,
from the mid-1960s up to and including the most recent comprehensive statement
of defence policy, Defence 2000: Our Future Defence Force.
This is no dry academic question. The key question for Australian defence
policy today is how we balance priority for the defence of Australia against
priority for the defence of wider strategic interests. The starting point for that
debate is the policies of the 1970s and 1980s, which placed major emphasis on
the defence of the continent....

My Math Experience
When I was younger math was my favorite subject, it was something that I felt very confident
with. Unlike english, history, and literature, where I had to exert extra effort, math was the only
subject that really came naturally to me. I remember when I was a kid my dad would test me on math questions, usually about lines and figures. What kind of line intersects, what are parallel
lines? I was probably about 7 years of age, and it really impressed family friends when the
answer was correct.
In school, I always did well in math especially basic math, it was simple and it was easy.
Back then, I still have the capacity to help out other students and I was always helping out
friends with their assignments. I always got high grades on tests and I was usually done first
when it came to exams. It was really up until I started high school. Then, algebra happened, since
we didn’t have any lessons given regarding algebra (even the most basic ones) during elementary
I didn’t understand a word the teacher was saying, it was like I was reading a different language.
It was hard at first because I for one like solving problems with numbers but when it started
involving letters I knew I had to work harder because it would be different than what we have ...
