Re: 日本語 (Japanese Practice)

はじめまして。Willです。 I am midway through my first quarter of Japanese and am enjoying it so far. I am hoping to get some practice in here in both reading and writing Japanese. Currently I only know Hiragana, and my vocabulary is limited to the most basic greetings. For the most part I am looking to get se...

Re: Trigonometry Help

OK math problem ... round 2. 5(sin 2x - cos 2x) = 5sin 2x -5cos 2x Using the same set up as prevously. A=5 B= (-5) k= 5root(2) hm .. so then Sin(theta)= (-B/root(A 2 +B 2 ) .... -5/5root(2)= -1/root(2) = -(pi/4). So, now I am at 5root(2)sin(x-pi/4). Seems I am still off. Though, I suppose that sin(7...

Questions about Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis

Good Morning! For my Human Communications class this quarter I am giving a five minute speech on the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis. My initial research attempt was less than stellar as far as results go, so I was hoping that I could petition some good advice from the ever-reliable xkcd forums. Can you reco...

Re: Recovering Information

The only valuable data on the computer, as far as my wife is concerned, is her Sims2 game. Now, this is going to take a jab into software country, but here goes. My wife backs up her saved files to an external hardrive every week or so. So, if we can reinstall the Sims2 +expansions and have her game...

Re: Recovering Information

Furthermore, when I turn on the power to the external enclosure, although nothing visuall happens on my screen or on my enclosure, the old hard drive emits a faint ticking noise much like the second hand of a winding watch. I have no idea what this means, if anything.

Well, mixed results. I have bought the suggested enclosure and hooked everything up. However, when I plug it into my ASUS via USB, nothing happens. Well, I shouldn't say nothing, because I did observe one interesting occurrence. When I have the power adapter plugged into the wall there is a power in...

Re: Recovering Information

The easiest way would be to pull the drive and put it in an external USB enclosure. The only thing you'll have to know is if it's an IDE drive or a SATA drive, which is very easy to tell by looking at the back (IDE connections are two long rows of pins, while SATA is a little L-shape connection.)

Re: Precal Homework Help

Yeah - apparently I missed the little red calculator icon next to the problem, sort of in the fold of the book. It turns out the we were supposed to solve it to the equation, then run that in the calculator and find the positive value of x. Still though, solving it without the calculator was fun too...

Re: Area of a triangle.

Is there a circumstance under which Heron's Forumla will not give me the area of a triangle? Basically, is it the end all of triangle area finding?

Ok, so I need to find the area of a triangle with the points A=(-2,1) , B=(4,1) , C=(7,4). Having no clear idea how to do this (I feel like I may have learned this somewhere, then forgotten it.) here is what I did. 1- Line segments.
