comment Find distance between two poles.
How is tan(ACB) = AB/BC. The angle ACB is not even part of a right angle triangle given the way you have described the situation.

comment Is it valid to get a correlation between moving averages?
I think it is fine to use the moving average, as while each day data point will be used 10 times, each moving average data point only counts 1/10th of this, and effectively with a large data set the moving average should yield the same correlation as a day by day analysis. I say a large data set because the first 9 data points won't be counted a full 10 times, nor the last 9 data points, so provided you have much more than 18 moving average data points you should be ok.

comment How sample size affects confidence interval.
In this example, sigma is the population standard deviation, and thus is independent of sample size. So your answer is correct. Technically however your working should be 1.96sigma/sqrt(n) is the margin error, but the 1.96 cancels out anyway.

comment Simple interest problem
@Al.Ka, my belief is that the best way to teach is by direct instruction. If a student sees enough well worked examples, they will learn to emulate that over time.

comment When will one maximum turn into three maximums?
@ClaudeLeibovici, by distinct, I mean when there exists three maximum solutions to the equation y'(x) = 0, as opposed to x = 0 being the only such solution.

@Winther, can you help me with this similar quesiton: math.stackexchange.com/questions/1219657/…

@ClaudeLeibovici, I was more interested in whether there was a way to manipulate to find x, rather than the solutions themselves. Claude are you able to help on this queston: math.stackexchange.com/questions/1219657/…

@Winther, yes I was able to figure that one out.
