comment Max distance between a line and a parabola
I had no idea I was asking the wrong question, I was too stupid to realize that and that is the reason I have to come here for help because I am too dumb to get answers to questions myself. I have low confidence which makes me second guess myself and then I have to go over everythng dozens of times. Here all these maths geniuses just get things right the first time without flaw and never once second guess thesmevles so it saves me literally hours to just ask here.

comment Max distance between a line and a parabola
I have no clue what you are going on about. I can't even follow what you say at all without a dictionary. I have no idea what maximizing the square of the distance is or where it came from. I don't know what subject to means, I don't know what the E means I don't know what that arrow implies I don't know what a convex quadratic is, this makes all the math impossible to follow.

I have never heard of a parametric equation before.

Clearly? I don't understand what you mean by P(t, t^2)

comment Simple chain rule application $y = (1-x^{-1})^{-1}$
I am not smart and I am incredibly bad at math and I lost my sheet with all the derivatives I need to memorize on it so I forgot them all.

I thought that was an equation you were setting up. What happens in the second step? I don't understand where the logx and log x -1 come from.

I am not familiar with that at all don't you have to raise everything to e or something like that to get rid of log?
