I don't know how you got $y=1$, but your problem is those two equations are actually the same. This means that you will have infinite solutions.

Try using polar form ($z = re^{i\theta}$).

comment Telling where a function is differentiable
$C^1$ implies differentiability as far as I remember. That is, continuity of both partial derivatives suffices to prove that a function is differentiable (existence isn't enough). However, with some functions (like your second one) it can be easier to just check the definition of differentiability than to actually differentiate and check continuity.

comment Solve $2a + 5b = 20$
Anyway, I don't understand the thinking process. How do you get from $2a+5b =20$ to $0a+5b=20$? That's certainly not a valid step.

comment Solve $2a + 5b = 20$
Are $a$ and $b$ supposed to be integers or real numbers? I don't really know a lot about number theory, but I know that if they're real numbers then there are infinite solutions.

comment Multivariable Limits
@Arjang: It can be defined with the same $\epsilon$-$\delta$ definition used for single variable limits.

comment Multivariable Limits
@Arjang: are you sure about that? Take $\frac{xy}{x^2+y^2}$; if you compute the limit with $x$ first and then $y$ or with $y$ first and then $x$ it gives $0$ both times, but the limit doesn't exist (take the line $y=x$).

comment Proving the existence of a point $a \in \mathbb{R}_+$ s.t. $\cos(a) < 0$
Nitpick: your second property should be $\cos x = \Re(\exp(ix))$.

@Matthew: assuming we're interpreting the quedtion correctly, wouldn't it be $\sin 4\theta$?

I'm guessing it should be $R (\hat z \cdot R)$.

But for $n=1$ you need to integrate $\sin^2 x$.

comment Solve $3\log_{10}(x-15) = \left(\frac{1}{4}\right)^x$
@abc: "closed form" solution means a formula using only elementary operations (addition, substraction, multiplication, division) plus a handful of functions (exponentiation, roots and logarithms, trigonometric).
