I (very) often unintentionally let the battery of my mobile phone drain to 0%. The other week, it won't charge up at all and following advice, I took the battery out and placed it back in. It worked. Today the same thing happened but even when I took the battery out, the phone shows the charging sign for a few seconds and goes completely black after. No response even after pressing the on-off button for 20 secs. Any suggestions besides getting a new battery?1 AnswerCell Phones & Plans6 years ago
I've been calculating this many times over but the number I got just doesn't tally with the given.
I scored 36/60 in total for part 1 of my test and 32/75 for part 2.
Part 1 is worth 40% of the total and part 2 is worth 60%.
Can someone help me calculate the overall percentage points?4 AnswersMathematics6 years ago
What do you understand by the phrase "to ooze juicily at the last round the bearded lips of God"? This is from Part 1 Chapter 2, an excerpt from F. Alexander's book (with the same title as the actual novel).

In chapter 12, Holden says "It was pretty quiet, though, because Ernie was playing the piano. It was supposed to be something holy, for God's sake, when he sat down at the piano. Nobody's that good."
I'm confused as to how this should be interpreted. Does Holden mean to say that the music piece is holy, but in actuality, nobody's that pure/ religious? Or does he mean that Ernie sitting down at the piano is holy because he's such an exceptional and inspirational performer?

Descartes theorised, 'I think, therefore I am'. Sartre said that as human beings, we can choose to be whatever we want.
Aren't they similar then? Say, if a human being is an animal because he/she thinks that he/she is an animal, doesn't this fall under both Descartes (he/she thinks, therefore he/she is an animal) and Sartre?

Teenagers these days seem to have an aversion for healthy drinking habits, preferring soft drinks etc to plain water.
I'll really appreciate any of you who can provide suggestions (be it in terms of a campaign / changes to water bottles) as to how they can be encouraged to drink more plain water.
Thanks!1 AnswerOther - Health7 years ago
I know that dy/dx is 0 when the tangent of a line is parallel to the x axis. But how about for the normal?2 AnswersMathematics7 years ago
The perimeter of a circular sector is 30cm.
(I) Write down an equation relating the radius and angle of the sector.
(II) The radius increases at a rate of 5cm/s^-1. Find the rate at which the angle of the sector is changing when the radius is 10cm.

I am trying to understand the idea of complementary goods: coffee and sugar. Technically, if the supply of coffee were to fall, its equilibruim price and quantity will rise. What then happens to sugar? I looked at it from two perspectives:
1) Eqm price of coffee rises, qty dd falls, and dd for sugar drops
2) Eqm qty of coffee rises and dd for sugar rises.
Can anyone help to reconcile the two ideas? :( ultimately, what is the effect on sugar?1 AnswerEconomics8 years ago
The curve C has parametric equations x=t^2+4t and y=t^3+t^2.
The tangent to the curve at the point A where t=2 is denoted by k.
(I) find the cartesian equation of k
(II) the tangent k meets the curve C again at point B. Use a non calculator method to find the coordinates of B.
I just need help with part II of the question.

A circular cylinder is expanding in such a way that at a time t seconds, the length of the cylinder is 20x cm and the area of the cross section is x cm^2. Given that when x=5, the area of the cross section is increasing at a rate of 0.025 cm^2 s^-1, find the length of the cylinder.1 AnswerMathematics8 years ago
