comment What is the formula for this curve?
Yes those are the ones I'm looking for, but the problem is, given an x value from 0 to 1, how do I map respective y values in the range of 0 to 1 as well?

@Amzoti ya I've gotten up to there, but I'm not sure how to restrict y values to 0-1

Why is this different from 6 possible options?

Ahhh I see..it was that basic all along, I was overthinking it..

comment Curl and Divergence
Oh sorry f is a scalar function, F is a vector function, and Grad and grad are the same (must have been a typo) and they are the gradient.

comment Question on partial derivatives
When you say that $f$ is a function of 1 variable, are you referring to $u$ as that variable?

So how that that change for $(2n-1)^2$, how many 1's would that be?

comment Proving a statement by contradiction
Actually I got up to that part, but I couldnt figure out how many bits could represent that number.

comment Proving a statement by contradiction
So how would I use this general fact? I mean I could keep providing examples, but how could I generalize this in terms of n?

Excellent answer. I will definitely take your advice!

comment Understanding the intuition behind math
Well I'm currently studying derivatives of vector valued functions. If you ask me to solve a problem, I'll do it for you. But if you ask me to tell you what it means and how can it be used, then I'll have absolutely no idea. I passed Calc II with an A last semester, but I have no idea what I learned. Its like a blackout to me, as if I were drunk and studying math.

@Arturo any idea about the parametrization of the plane?

and what about for finding the parametrization of the plane?

comment Determining if a line is orthogonal to a plane
So it'd be $<2,3,5>X<-4,-12,18>$?

comment Determining if a line is orthogonal to a plane
Oh well I already knew the normal vector of the plane, $<2,3,5>$, and now the normal vector of the line (if I can call it that) is just $<1,0,2>$?

comment Why is Euler's Identity stated the way it is?
Sorry I wasnt sure what to tag this at all, so I chose calculus. Please fix as needed.
