The Count Dracula awakes on night 0 and his evil afterlife begins. On night 1, Dracula starts biting people. Every bitten human becomes a vampire and bites people as well. Let $v(n)$ be the vampire population after $n^\text{th}$ night. Investigate the function $v(n)$ in the following cases: a) Every vampire bites one human every night starting the first night after the initiation. Write down a recurrent and an explicit formula for $v(n)$. b) Every vampire bites one human every night starting the second night after the initiation. Write down a recurrent formula for $v(n)$. Prove that \[v\left ( n \right )=\frac{\left ( \frac{1+\sqrt{5}}{2} \right )^{n+2}\left ( \frac{1\sqrt{5}}{2} \right )^{n+2}}{\sqrt{5}}\] c) Every vampire bites $m$ humans on the $n^\text{th}$ night after the initiation. Write down a recurrent and an explicit formula for $v(n)$. A curve is defined by the parametric equations:
Find the length of the arc of the curve from the origin to the nearest point where there is a vertical tangent line. You can submit your solution for a chance of it be posted! Go to the "Submit Your Solution" tab or by visiting http//s.calchumor.com/SubmitSolution
** THIS IS NOT OUR OWN WORK. THIS IS BY LOGAN MICHAEL ALBERS ** Calculus, a poem by Logan Michael Albers So there exists this mathematical class
Where many students struggle and fail to pass It’s a class where numbers nearly cease to be And mathematics become an alphabetical catastrophe As you begin to take integrals and fight off the derivatives You find your calculator fails to be the aid it once was This material has become tough stuff to the extreme And you must rely on brainpower to find an “A” few and far between The tests fly and the graphs become rather become intricate As you find your eraser in constantly sweeping up a bit A bit of your mistakes, a bit of your struggle As the brain is fried in the juggle Yet as the course rears its sinister grin A few fellow classmates join together as a calculus kin Together they fought off the insidious beast And made it through to semester in one piece With grins of victory and passing grades all around They knew that those rates of change would never win this showdown Calculus was defeated and these students had won With their share of trouble and some good clean fun
