# Conic Sections watch

1. 2.a) Sketch the ellipse as shown in Fig 7.6

b) Sketch the ellipse obtained by a horizontal translation of +3 units.

c) Write down the equation of the new ellipse.

d) Find the co-ordinates of the points of intersection of the line y = 2x - 4 and the new ellipse.

I'm stuck on d, its x = 2,3 (yesterday one c was incorrect)

You used y=2x + 4 instead of y=2x - 4

3. Find the points of intersection of the hyperbola x2 - y2 = 1 and the line y = ⅓(x + 2)

Answer is x =1.55, -1.05, yet I get below a 0 on
What did I screw up this time?

Well you screwed up on calculating the discriminant. The quadratic is correct.

i think that the discriminant would be more use in this problem...

11. 2. Find the general solutions of these equations, working in radians:

a) tan (x - π) = √3

b) sin (½ x + π) = 1/√2

c) cos (½ x - π/2) = √3/2

I'm on 2c,

c) 4π/3 + 4nπ, 2π/3 + 4nπ

I got
4π/3 + 4nπ
But not
2π/3 + 4nπ

What am I doing wrong?

The domain of the RHS in order to make the equation true. Meaning the statement right before it is true for all integers . The set of integers is denoted by and the symbol means "in" from the context of sets.

And just means "for every single value of..."

It's not quite true as .

Hah, silly me, fixed what I meant to say.
