### Finding Derivative of a Point?

Favourite answer:g(x) = 4x² - 2x + 15 ← this is a function

g(5) = 100 - 10 + 15 = 105 → the representative curve of the function passes through (5 ; 105)

g'(x) = 8x - 2 ← this is its derivative

g'(5) = 40 - 2 = 38 ← this is in fact the slope of the tangent line to the curve at point (5 ; 105)

g(x) = 4x² - 2x + 15 ← this is the function → to calculate the derivative:

Lim [g(x₀ + h) - g(x₀)] / h

h → 0

Lim [ { 4.(x₀ + h)² - 2.(x₀ + h) + 15 } - { 4x₀² - 2x₀ + 15 } ] / h

h → 0

Lim [ { 4.(x₀² + 2x₀.h + h²) - 2x₀ - 2h + 15 } - 4x₀² + 2x₀ - 15 ] / h

h → 0

Lim [4x₀² + 8x₀.h + 4h² - 2x₀ - 2h + 15 - 4x₀² + 2x₀ - 15] / h

h → 0

Lim [8x₀.h + 4h² - 2h] / h

h → 0

Lim h.[8x₀ + 4h - 2] / h

h → 0

Lim (8x₀ + 4h - 2) = 8x₀ - 2

h → 0

g'(x₀) = 8x - 2

g'(5) = 40 - 2 = 38 ← this is the same result (above)

### Which planets (or other bodies) in our solar system are the least difficult to colonize?

Favourite answer:Mainly Mars, because it is the easiest to get to, besides the Moon

Venus can actually come Closer but it is a different story

Mars can be walked on with a Protective Suit to help breathing and stave off Solar radiation

But a lot of Smart work over time could actualoly make things more comfortable for us Humans

What Mars mostly lacks is Mass

Mass = Gravity

If Martian Mass was increased so would its Gravity and the Densness of its Atmosphere

If the Mass of Mars was increased to 80% of Earth's, the Gravity would be quite similar to Earth's

Over time, the Mantle would become more liquid till it creates a proper protective Magnetosphere

All that with Breathing apparatus could do away with suits

On the Long term the CO2 in the Atmosphere plus what gets added from the surface as it sublimes would help Vegetation to grow with a bit of effort

Ever Watch the Film, The Martian with Matt Damon

There is no reason it wouldn't work

Plants use CO2 and produce Oxygen, which is handy

So the sooner we start Terraforming the Better

### If a star 600 hundred light years away went super nova how big would the explosion have to be for people to see it is less than 600 years?

Favourite answer:You could see it sooner than 600 years if you have a powerful telescope pointed at the Nova. The scope would be able to see the light from the explosion before the light reaches Earth.

### Will Alyssa Carson have the first Mars’ new born?

So she’s being trained to go in a 1 way ticket to Mars and stay there until she died. Does that means she’s getting trained to have babies in Mars to populated the planet with humans?

### If there is life on other planets, does that mean they are also not technologically advanced enough to visit Earth?

Since we can't seem to reach them, and they can't seem to reach us, is it fair to say that there's not many planets that have yet to surpass us in technology?
