More Mu Alpha Theta Practice… Do It! March 2nd, 2007

You can reach any test by going to the URL â€œhttp://wangsblog.com/jeffrey/2002MAO/TestName.pdfâ€ where TestName may be replaced by any of the following:

AlphaIndividual
AlphaNumTheory
CalculusAB
Ciphering
EuclidAlgGeom
Gemini
GeometryClass
MuIndividual
MuNumTheory
MuProbability
OpenSeqSeries
ThetaAlgGeom
ThetaIndividual
ThetaNumTheory
ThetaProbability
TrigClass

So, for example, if I wanted the Mu Number Theory test I would go to â€œhttp://wangsblog.com/jeffrey/2002MAO/MuNumTheory.pdfâ€. Not all of these tests are around, but this should give you some idea of what to expect.

Is the TrigClass for HIAT3 in general?

And OpenSeqSeries would be the one for Sequences & Series, right?

TrigClass is what Alpha people take for class test. You would take AdvAlgebra I think.

And yeah, you can do the open one for Seq & Series.

hmm.

what is the sum of the first 40 fourth powers? how do you find that?

is there a special formula to follow….?

4. t0rajir0u Says:

I don’t know why anyone would bother to memorize this, but the sum of the first n fourth powers is

n(n+1)(2n+1)(3n^2 + 3n – 1) / 30
