    Find the ratio between r and h, given by initial conditions, then sub that in for r and find dv/dh then we know that dv/dt is -1/100 then using chain rule find dh/dt

    How do you do the Binomial questions when you estimate the value of something, like June 2013 10ii?

    No idea but I think it's usually 0.1, but there must be a method to know which number to put in?

    You basically find a value of X to sub in to make the given value, then sub that value of x into the binomial.

    Are the people wanting the diff equation explainef still around?

    I hope this helps guys. Quote me if you need more.

    Edit: that V in the top left should be a dv. And the rate of change is negative. But forgive me, im tired.

    You have x/(1-x)^3

    Find a value of x that gives you whatever you need to prove, then sub that same value into the binomial.

    First of all you know that that value must be between -1 and 1, as well as positive.

    Is there no better/algebraic method other than educated guesses?

    I believe No unless you want to solve x/(1-x)^3 =729/100.

    Though i just did solved it on my silver calculator.

    Try to think what to the power of 3 = 729 (for the bottom of the fraction)

    This happens to be 9 - then try to make a multiple of 9 at the bottom. (0.9)
