I am a self-taught programming enthusiast, who is currently perusing a Bachelors degree in Computer Science. My experience has taught me how to surf the waves of the latest trends and standards for the desktop, web, and mobile industries. My programming experience lies within these languages:

  • HTML 4.01 and HTML5
  • CSS2 and CSS3
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery, jQueryUI, and jQuery Mobile
  • PHP 5
  • MySQL 5 Command Line
  • Adobe Flex Framework 4, 4.5, and 4.6 for Web, Desktop, and Mobile
  • ActionScript 3.0
  • LaTeX
  • AutoHotkey
  • Java 6
  • C++
  • Unix (Ubuntu) Command Line

When I am not programming, I enjoy people, the outdoors, archery, guns, working out, cars, and horses. My dream cars are a Nissan GT-R, Chevrolet Camaro, and Ford Mustang Shelby. Also, in the ideal world, I hope to own two friesian stallions or gypsy vanner stallions some day and expand my collection of Ruger pistols.

P.S.: If you ever get a chance to explore the history of the PA Turnpike or visit the abandoned PA Turnpike, I'd say go for it. It's pretty awesome!

Thank you for your input, but this was a problem I had on a test...

This is FABulous! Could you please also answer the second to last one, where a constant is used?

@amWhy Yes, that is correct. Basic problems are just that, basic, and not to hard to grasp.

@Campbeln Not a problem! If you found my answer helpful, could you accept the answer, please?

comment How is $2 + e^{t^2} - e^{-t^2}$ Equal to $(e^t + e^{-t})^2$?
Oh... Thank you for making that clear. The \frac{e^t}{e^t} cancel to give one. That is clear in the way you broke it up. Unfortunately, I was given the longer expression to start with, and had to see if it simplified, so I didn't have the opportunity to work backwards.

@AustinMohr Yep, I made a silly typo.

@anon You'd have to dig around to find what I'm references.

comment Integration: How to Begin?
Hmm... how can we stop thinking in terms of right triangles if the above example uses $\tan{x}$ and $\cos{x}$? Plus, by having a square root, we easily know that it would (in this case) exist as the hypotenuse of the triangle.

comment Integration: How to Begin?
The only problem is, that I don't understand why this works (or really how to set it up) since we aren't working with a square root here.

comment Why Doesn't This Integral $\int \frac{\sqrt{x^2 - 9}}{x^2} \ dx$ Work?
Fixed the above work. Interestingly, it only resulted in a few sign changes. Any further ideas?

What a coincidence that this question was posted on the same day as mine. Wonder if we're working from the book, at the same time, (from the same school, in the same class)? lol Thank you, Sivaram

(cold chills) ... yes, your right, let me try re-evaluating

comment Divide inside a Radical
Actually, I understand your comment. :) But if you would like to learn how to make square roots, fractions, powers, etc... you can do that by typing to dollar signs in a row, then between the dollar signs, type in LaTeX code. If you are not familiar with LaTeX, Wikibooks has an article on it: en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX For a quick start, just click the "edit" link underneath my original post, and you can see how I did it. ;)
