comment Implicit Differentiation of $\cos^3(y)$
So we can read $cos^3(y)$ as $cos^3(y(x))$?

comment How to determine the derivative of $ f $ at $ x=2$ by looking at the graph only?
@ajotatxe Can you share how you arrived at that function? I'm new to calculus so maybe your observation that it "seems like a cubic" is the giveaway.

comment Determine y-coordinate of a 3rd point from 2 given points and an x-coordinate.
Of course now my question is: what does this exercise have to do with limits?

comment Determine y-coordinate of a 3rd point from 2 given points and an x-coordinate.
Wow, I was really overthinking this. Given the lectures up to this point were all about limits, many having to do with limits of polynomials, I was assuming the line connecting A and C was a curve. Thus, I thought the reference to triangles was something more complex than it was. Thank you!

It does not, and so perhaps I was reading too much into it.

comment Why is this not the simplest form of this expression?
Interesting, I hadn't thought of that. The series to be solved was $\sqrt{12}+\sqrt{6}+\sqrt{3}+...$ Given that, I'm not seeing a connection between the first term and the ratio. Or am I overlooking it?

Hmmm...maybe I'm confused about what it means for an expression to be in simplest form. I guess I thought of addition as being simpler than multiplication.

Eeesh. Of course. Thank you.

Are you saying I have the wrong value for $r$? That it should be $1-\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}$? If so can you help me understand why. Thanks!
