The graph of this function is a hyperbola. There is no point solution but a graph of points that satisfy the equation .

comment Limit of $\sin(3x)/x$ as $x$ goes to zero
Right, but as I noted in the other answer, this wasn't a given. Although I appreciate this method to get here once the first problem is solved.

@bungo - Same issue. I didn't solve that one either.

@bungo - it was in the same set of problems. I imagine that once this section is behind us, it's considered a given. But not yet.

comment I am getting a number below zero when caluclating out two standard deviations from the mean. Is this ok?
The 'less than zero' simply means the distribution isn't a perfect bell curve. Just like a live adult can't have negative height or weight, even if the curve shows that some portion should, the homicide rate can't go negative.

comment How to plot decimals on a line graph?
Can you add context to the question? The answer will depend on why you are graphing these numbers. 4 digit precision is tough to show on a graph, even if the scale only went from 0 to 1.

comment Why is it that if I count years from 2011 to 2014 as intervals I get 3 years, but if I count each year separately I get 4 years?
+1 right. I don't see why this answer or mine got a DV.

comment Which base of numerical system have $\frac 15 = 0.33333\ldots$?
mathsisfun.com/binary-decimal-hexadecimal-converter.html is worth a look. It offers decimal, binary and hex conversions. It might help you see the relationships, ex, enter binary .010101010101 and see what this is in decimal.

comment I have issue in calculating log values
"3 powers to 10" - is that a common way to present this? I would say "10 to the 3rd power" or simply "10 to the 3rd."

I suppose that if a joke is funny, it needs no explanation. The answer looks good. Not sure how it's hilarious, not even a bit.
