My name is Alex and I am a student at Oregon State University. I am passionate about programing and finding out how computers and systems work. I love to learn, and i love math. I program every chance i get and try to learn how to do things more efficiently all the time. I have been working on a very basic video game for about a year now which is very fun.

I am not only interested in computer programing, however, I also am an bibliophile (book lover), and an autodidact. I am also very intrigued with creativity, for instance i am enamored with beautiful poetry, and great art, and i would contend that web design to be apart of that category, as well as great code.

my strongest programing languages are: PHP, AS3, C++, C, CSS, HTML (if you consider this to be a programing language. I use the term a bit loosely), javascript, java, and python.

I am better at some of these languages than others, but by no means do i consider my self to be great at any. I still have a lot to learn.

and that is a little information on who i am.

comment converting a parametric R5 vector into a Cartesian form
quick question how did you calculate the C values? is it A=[a1 a2]= c , and just do row reduction? that is the only part i did not completely follow.

comment converting a parametric R5 vector into a Cartesian form
first of all thank you very much for your quick response. secondly this is a homework problem for my linear algebra class, so I'm not 100% sure if my its supposed to be in the Mx=b form, but I would assume so.

Thank you very much... this helped me a lot. I do have one question though. does this method of splitting up terms work in most or all cases of third degree polynomial factoring?

I remember leaning about that in one of my calculus classes, but how does that apply to this? Can you use that to factor a third degree polynomial?

so you are saying you can factor this as two trinomial degree two polynomials just by grouping? very interesting.

accepted Is there any intuition behind why the derivative of $\cos(x)$ is equal to $-\sin(x)$ or just something to memorize?
