3. ### Converting formula to linear relationship

I am struggling with converting formulae to the linear form Y = mX +C For example if I have the relationship ay=b^x and I need to express this in linear form using logs, I get: logy+ loga = xlogb not sure how to get this to the form Y=mX+C because if I move the loga onto the other side I...
4. ### requesting help for converting from Cylindrical to Spherical

\int_{0}^{2pi} \int_{0}^{sqrt(a^2-b^2)} \int_{b}^{sqrt(a^2-r^2)} r dz dr d \theta I find it difficult to imagine the spherical coordinates with the above scenario.. Ant tips would be much appreciated. Thanks.
5. ### A question about converting cylindrical coordinates to rectangular coordinates

I have a problem figuring something out when it comes to converting cylindrical to 3D rectangular coordinates. the formulas for converting are as follows: x = r cos theta y = r sin theta z = z If we're just using basic trigonometry to figure out the sides of the triangle of which the angle...

Hello everyone, New here. Anyways, I am trying to convert the following function from standard to vertex form. f(x)=x^2+3x+1/4 Besides that, does anybody have a very good explanation for noobs like me :D to understand. I'm really confused and need some help here. Thanks.
11. ### A little confused about converting from base 10- to base 2(new to binary)?

The question is stated in multiple parts, but for example: "Perform the following base conversions using subtraction or division-remainder" 588 (base 10) to ____ base (3) using this as an example, i got 210210(base 3), however, my professor wants me to " in addition, perform base 2...
12. ### Why do we divide or multiply by 2 when converting binary?

Trying to understand the fundamentals of binary rather than just following steps, I wanted to know why do we multiply by 2 to convert a decimal (0.5, 0.25) to a binary and why do we divide by 2 when we want to convert a whole number (200) by 2? Obviously, it works but how ? Take the...

Hi there, I'm currently stuck on a problem, and have no idea where to start on it. I've tried converting it to rectangle form, then trying to solve it from there, but I'm still confused. r=\frac{4}{2\cos( \theta )-3\sin( \theta )}
14. ### Converting degrees to radians and finding an area of a sector of a circle

Hi guys, Ok so 52 degrees in radians is 0.91 (to 2 s.f.) but what does it mean to leave my answer in terms of pi? And then to use my answer from above to find the area of a sector of a circle of radius 16cm and angle 52 degrees?! Now I'm really out of my depth, lol.. :eek:
15. ### Converting between 1 base and another base

I can most of the time successfully convert between base 10 and another base or another base and base 10 or between 2 bases where one of them is a power of the other(like base 2 and base 4 or base 3 and base 9). With negative bases I sometimes don't get what I want in that negative base and...

Hi, I am looking for help with converting the following two nonlinear equations to linear (y=ax+b) 1) P/S= 1/c + d/c p (c and d are constant parameters) 2) E = 3.2 + kU^m (k and m are constant parameters) Thanks
17. ### Converting between polar and cartesian coordinates (No calculator)...

I have been reading a book and one of the exercises involves converting between polar and Cartesian coordinates but without a calculator so when x = 4 and y = 3 then the answer is r=5 and Î¸ = tan^-1 (3/4) which is fine but then for some of the answers you know what the values are so when x = -1...
