Yeah I'm trying to work out how to calculate it so I can see if my statistical critical value is significant.

And yup there's no 2.51 so I want to some how find out what 2.51 would be

1700
You mean 6700

I do not see your point in the slightest.

Are you trying to say French females are more attractive than Indian ones?
Why?

Do you disagree?

oooof senorita!

So whats the method for that?

Btw, I just bought more grapes, a creme egg and a 2lr bottle of lemonade
I'm not entirely sure. What I thought was that you would need the trig with the biggest coefficient to be at a minimum.

...so in this case 12cos(x). cos(x) has a minimum of -1, at x = pi, so altogether...

f(pi) = 12cos(pi) - 4sin(pi) = 12(-1) - 4(0) = -12

I can check for you in GraphCalc

btw,

Considering it'd be a massive generalisation, I do disagree.

Do you believe French women are more attractive than Indian women?

Thank you, I knew it was something easy

Any ideas on the smallest positive value?

I think I remember the method! You have to use the Rcos(t + a) form, I think.

Then you make (theta + alpha) = pi, because that's where the cos graph is at a minimum, and the minimum is -R (R x -1).

The smallest positive value would be (pi - a) (see previous post. My original method was wrong.)

Maybe, idk

reading this we can come to the conclusion that maths is a complete bunch of ********!

Haha I'm still trying to work out b, I thought I'd done it
