A special window has the shape of a rectangle surrmounted by an equilateral triangle. If the perimeter is 16 feet, what dimensions will admit the most light? (hint: Area of equilateral triangle = the square root of 3/4 times x squared.)

I am stuck on how to solve the sum of the series that I have attached in a word document.

I used the product to sum identities rule since the integral involved cosines of different angles. I have attached a word document with the integral to solve and my work. I want to know if my answer is correct. If my answer is not correct, I want to know the correct answer and the steps to get it. Thanks.

Explain why the graph of f(x) is rising over an interval a < or equal to x < or equal to b if f '(x) > 0 throughout the interval. What can you say about the graph of f if f '(x) is less than zero on a < or equal to x < or equal to b?

1. The manager of a large apartment complex knows from experience that 80 units will be occupied if the rent is 320 dollars per month. A market survey suggests that, on the average, one additional unit will remain vacant for each 8 dollar increase in rent. Similarly, one additional unit will be occupied for each 8 dollar decreas
