 Oct 3 comment What do limits of functions of the form $te^t$ have to do with l'Hopital's rule? So you can just divide them like that to use l'Hopitals rule? The function that I'm interested in specifically is -5xe^(-1/5x). So this should be -5$$\lim\limits_{x \to \infty} 5e^( -1/5x ).$$ After l'Hopital's rule is applied right?

Sep 25 comment How can I find the expected value of a random variable with terms that increase until infinity? What is the name of the technique that is used to sum the sequence? I still don't understand why you're doing what you're doing. Sep 25 asked How can I find the expected value of a random variable with terms that increase until infinity? Sep 16 comment Is there a shorter way for me to answer this joint probability question? @AndréNicolas After thinking about my answer and your answer, I figured out how our answers differ and I figured out what I did wrong. I just forgot to include the number of red balls draws. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 10!/(10!)(10!) that I wrote originally is the same as 10!/(X!)(Y!). I just didn't include the (10-X-Y)! term that is used to account for the red balls. the (1/3)x (1/3)y term that I was multiplying by is the same as the (1/3)10 term that you are multiplying by. The X and the Y term (or X,Y and Z to be correct) are supposed to add up to 10.

Mar 20 comment What algorithms are used to determine the difference of two squares? @arbautjc The stuff that is another matter. That's what I'm interested in knowing. I know the formula that you mentioned already. Mar 20 comment What algorithms are used to determine the difference of two squares? @DaanMichiels You don't encounter it in the Euclidean Algorithm. You encounter it when doing RSA Encryption. The difference of two squares thing is what sets you up to be able to use the Euclidean Algorithm. I want to know what that first part is.
