Algebraic simplification problem after a u-substitution derivation

The attached file contains a function that needs to have the first order derivative taken. I took the derivative, but I am making a mistake in the algebra simplification of the result. Would you please take a look. I am working on a dynamic programming problem, and one part of it requires that I take the derivative of the

Intervals Real Numbers

Please see the attached file for full problem description Find ten real numbers in the closed interval [0,1] such that for each value m from 2 to 10, the numbers lie so that there is one of them in each of the open intervals [Note that these conditions for m = 1,2......,10 all have to hold simultaneously for your

Proving that an equality is false.

I have two sets of 64 numbers (1.1 to 7.4). Both number sets are created using the same equation for values of i from 0 to 63. m = 1.1 + ( i * 0.1 ) n = 1.1 + ( i * 0.1 ) I am trying to understand if the following equality is false in all cases except when the terms in each expression are equal (e.g. m^-12 = n^-12 and
