    Sorry, didn't read this part.

    Bascally, you are given two variables (but not explicitly told). These can be likened to x and y. You are given enough constraints to write one in terms of the other. You may need to do some substituting.

    Once you have them in the form:
    eg.
    y = x^2 + x + 1

    And you have to "find the value of x for which y is minimum", differentiate and set equal to zero:

    dy/dx = 2x + 1 = 0
    2x = -1
    x = -1/2

    So this is the value when y is a minimum. Sorry I'm rushed, gtg, I'll explain in mroe detail later, or maybe someone else will beat me to it. These are typical applications of calculus questions.
    thanks for your help. much appreciated. look foward to hearing from you later

    Have you gotta be able to prove, for example, that sin^2x + cos^2x = 1?

    So, you've got to know how to prove:

    Arithemtic - Sum, nth Term and first n natural numbers.

    And Geometric - Sum, nth Term and sum to infinity.

    That right?
