Anyone have some experience with some Java programming?

I'm terrible and could use a little push.

someone give me some opinion on this..

should we be worried about the interest rate and why/why not?


it's for a 4 min speech. it's not even graded, we're just working on preparing a project for the chicago fed and we're practicing. i'd just like some people's inputs who might know a little more than me. i have pretty good info, but wouldn't mind a little more input.

So I'm just starting business calculus and I'm having trouble on one random homework problem. I understand and have worked out every other one but I'm stuck on this one. Keep in mind this is on mymathlab so the numbers change every time I retry it, but I'm having trouble even getting close to the right answer.

It will say something like this:

"Find all values of x where the tangent line is horizontal."

f(x)= x^3-3x^2-8x+7

I have to find the derivative first, which in this case is 3x^2-6x-8

Then I have to set that equal to 0. 3x^2-6x-8=0.

This is where I'm now stuck. It says to use the quadratic formula, but every time I do it gives me a decimal with a ton of numbers and it won't take it because it wants the exact number. Is there an easier way of doing this?

This is probably super easy for most of yall but stay with me here I'm just getting started. Very Happy

There is no right or wrong answer in this case, there are both positives and negatives to most interest rates unless we are talking insanely high.

What is the interest rate about now?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A higher interest rate usually encourages more saving a less spending, but this runs the risk of slowing the economy down if people are not spending enough. A lower interest rate generally encourages more spending an less saving. This can situmlate a stagnating or recessing economy, but also take away a lot of the barriers to accumulating debt. Lower interest rates can also stiumlate a housing boom.

You can go deeper into the effects of each on the exchange rate, and the international effects of that on imports and exports.

Macro Policy is basically the root of any political debate on economics. I loved econnomics in HS, but the further you go the more calculus based it becomes. I am sure MBTL could vouch for that.

i'm an econ major, senior actually, and i don't mind the math side, but i definitely prefer micro so much more. macro is a lot more opinion based and just like such a mess and so much to keep track of it gets hard to keep up.

this is just like a debate class about it and i'm sick of it, especially since i don't need it to graduate.

If it wants exact answers, can you put in sq roots into you answer?

This chart is the numbers based on the responses women gave to a survey asking them about how "Sweet and Nice" they were, or how "Modest" they were, etc.


How do I read these numbers?

Econ 1 Question:

How can we reduce traffic congestion with no deadweight loss?

I admit, I'm stumped with this.

Do the numbers 1-9 represent that there were only nine women surveyed?
