I think you got the (e^x-1) wrong since that means a translation of one unit to the right. It says one unit down so its:

1/10e^x - 1
Wait...let me try and illustrate with LaTeX.

is what I meant, rather than which would translate it to the right.

LOL.

Btw, quick question:
"The graph of y=f(x) is obtained by translating the graph of y=e^x by one unit down and then by stretching with scale factor one tenth in the y direction. State f(x)"

Does f(x)=1/10(e^x -1) ?
Translation of 1 unit down:

y=e^x - 1

Stretch s.f. 1/10 in y direction

y = 1/10 e^x - 1/10?

As for a stretch in the y plane you multiply the whole function by the scale factor

Sorry . Yep you're right. I thought it said i moved down one unit.

This is why I love you so much.

So this is right?

If you only multipled the by 1/10 you'd stretch the graph s.f. 10 along the x axis which isn't what you want!

You would? I thought a translation of s.f. 10 along the x-axis would be

When we have a Cambridge TSR meet I think that I'll give bake you cake in the shape of pi. With little hearts on top!

You're right. M3 has officially fried my brain... that and playing Proffessor Layton all day!

THAT WOULD BE THE MOST AMAZING CAKE EVER! I want to open a Maths cafe, and you can have little pies for 3.14 pounds each!

Don't worry, you're still amazing to me!

That is the best idea ever!

Btw, so that I can win your heart, I'm genuinely going to make that cake now. I'm being 100% serious!

Yay, someone who accepts me for who I am... a total slob who has spent all day on a DS emulator and M3!

Well if we get no offer we could always open up a Maths cafe in Cambridge together for all the mathmos there! Pies for 3.14, and coffee with an 'e' or a pi or a phi symbol on the top, and slices of cake priced by radiian.... okay, I've evidently give this waaay too much though Not sure what kind of law related confectionary we could sell though!

... really? I think you would shoot straight up to number one on my coolest people ever chart if you were

Emulator? How typically Asian of you!

I can see this happening now. Though you have put A LOT of thought into it!

All Law related confectionery would be far too boring.

I'm being 100% serious. I'd been planning on baking a cake for everyone anyway so it wouldn't be too much trouble to make one in the shape of pi.

Actually, I'll have you know it was because my mother thought it would be a good idea to hide my DSi during exam period to prevent me from procrastinating and playing on it, and then forgot where she hid it, so I have to play on the laptop now!

Who needs a degree with they have the Maths cafe! Although I'm not sure I'd get a lot of business funnily enough... people just don't appreciate the beauty of maths *weep* ... although the general public is very partial to cake, that might reel them in!

Well... if I'd mentioned maths confectionary to a sane person, I expect that would be the least interesting thing they could think of! I'm sure you can think of some kind of law confectionary? Either that or you can use your degree to threaten potential non-bill payers 'Don't even think about leaving before you pay the bill, one of the owners is a law student who will sue your arse off'

Wow.. you are way too cool! I actually love you! and cake, Mmmm
Are we actually having a meet up? That would be so fun!

You can have a discount! Actually... we could charge normal people using degrees, and cool TSR people using radiians at the same ratio so all the awesome people pay less.
14. Oh God. When you guys poison everyone with your PI your gonna need a Doctor. Im in. Unless i fail at medical school and go to warwick for biochemistry

It seems that through this thread everyone is sorted for professions

Applying for both Politics BA and Politics and International Studies BA at Warwick.

**** GCSEs: No A*s, 5 As, 5 Bs and 2 Cs.
A level: A* Sociology, A Gov and Pol, B History
AS level: C Economics

According to a tutor in the department who I spoke to, I stand a pretty good chance. My advantages outweigh my disadvantages. My C in Economics for instance was largely earned through independent study. The fact that I'm reapplying (I declined my offer for Politics at Bham) as a post-qual is reassuring and so is the fact that I'm independently studying an A2 in Philosophy and an AS in Classics: Ancient History.

Still, Warwick is insanely competitive...
Hey I'm applying for Politics too.

You have better GCSE's than mine (3A's 5B's 4C's). Yet my AS's were AAAA and I am predicted A*AAA. Hope I see you there next year though.

Yeh!
18. I'm applying for law too! I m predicted A* in economics and business, A in Religious studies and A in Sociology. If I get an offer , I would definitely put Warwick as my first choice. My GCSE's are 2 A*'s, 2 A's, 5 B's and 2 C's. If i do get an offer............I wud be indebted to GOD for the rest of my life!!!!!!
