+1 for making it simple!

comment Prove this inequality $25ab+25a+10b\le38$
Hint: Put $b=\sqrt{1-a^2}$. And substitute $b$ in given expression. Afterwards obtain an equation $f(a)$, and find maxima and minima by using derivative tests.

comment Approximation of an expression (no calculator please!)
Seriously, one needs great persistence to attempt this one with the first method, I even tried it but dropped it in the mid-way thinking that this would take took long. Anyway thanks!

comment Approximation of an expression (no calculator please!)
@RossMillikan I guess from the phrase "just equal to" they meant that we will be needing a minor approximation. Although answer approximation isn't that much minor. You can freely blame the question.

@Paul Thanks! I didn't know that.

comment Figuring domain of constant $a$ in a equation with some condition
It can't happen. This question is from India's biggest Level 1 Joint Entrance Exam for Engineering colleges and this is it's 2015 sample paper. They would do anything, but never bring wrong questions/options in their paper. You can see it's $\mathrm{Q. 63}$ in this pdf document jeemain.nic.in/webinfo/PDF/06.04.2014E.pdf

@rlartiga Silly me. I had rectified that. Thanks!

That's given in the question?

Don't you think that saying downward and right will depend upon the relative orientation of co-ordinate axes

comment Unique intersection of $b^x$ and $\log_b(x)$
@SimonS user had specified that the point $b>1$ and there is exactly one point of intersection. Thus for $b>1$ there is only and only one value where there is one point of interesection.

comment Probability of a point lying in a space
@Eupraxis1981 Yes. "The points have integral co-ordinate". And please don't consider any relativity errors.

Thank you. This was the identity which I was missing. Silly me.

comment Let $f_n(x)=nx(1-x^2)^n$ on $[0,1]$ for $n\ge1$. Find $f(x)= \lim f_n(x)$. Is this a convergence uniform?
Please add mathjax for clarification. Refer this page for edit: meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/5020

comment conversion of $\cos \theta$ = 0.248 without a calculator
@Integrator You are just seeing. Realizing is more important. This was my favorited question, hence I rectified it. And other way moderator himself had approved this edit. He would have judged whether it's correct or not. And by the way does it harm anyone if the question appears on the main page (any kind of server fault or other inconvenience), definitely not. This was a reasonable edit.

You might be forgetting that external users also browse this site and search for the questions. It really doesn't matter how old the question is, people will still find it.

Question needs some serious mathjax edit. This is really ambiguous to even edit.
