Page 230 - To free the equation of fractional exponents, substitute for the unknown quantity a new unknown quantity with an exponent equal to the least common multiple of the denominators of the exponents in the equation. Thus, in (1) put y = z", whence y * — z"", y ' = e", and y

Page 113 - As the body falls, the distance d and the time s are variables, and 16 is a constant. Again, time measured from a past date is a variable, while time measured between two fixed dates is a constant. 2. The constants in a mathematical investigation are, as a rule, general numbers, and are represented by the first letters of the alphabet, a, b, c, etc. ; variables are usually represented by the last letters, x, y, z, etc. 3. A variable which has a definite value, or set of values, corresponding to a...

Page 205 - O = slope of the indifference curve on A or B = —— It is thus clear from above that if we have to find out the MRS^ at a point on the indifference curve we can do so by drawing tangent at the point on the indifference curve and then measuring the slope by estimating the value of the tangent of the angle which the tangent line makes with the X-axis. Principle of Diminishing Marginal Rate of Substitution An important principle of economic theory is that marginal rate of substitution of X for Y...
