Re: New John Mayer album?

If you really like his approach to song writing, you'll love the album. It's one of my favorites so far.

He does some sweet solos in it too, though they're much more sparse than in Try!.

Re: Homework Help for Sam

Okay, so then:
[math]d/{dx} 2^e = eln2 * 2^e[/math]

right? But in the equation above, I'm differentiating [imath]2^{ex}[/imath], so don't I apply the chain rule?
Like, using the chain rule and all that's listed above, I get this:

[math]2^{ex} = 2^{e^x}[/math][math]d/dx 2^{e^x} = x * {2^e} ^ {x - 1} * eln2 * 2^{ex}[/math]

Right?

Re: Need help developing an algorithm!

If you let x = level, and s = skill,

Level 1 is 50
Level 2 is 75
Level 3 is 83.33
Level 4 is 87.5
Level 5 is 90
Level 6 is 91.67
Level 7 is 92.85

It approaches 100, but I don't think it can actually equal it.
