Describe in words what shape these contours are (ie, circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, lines, or some other shape). Solution: The contours at c = 1 and c = 1 are the hyperbolas y = 1 x and y = 1 x , respectively. The contour at c = 0 is the union of the x -axis and the y -axis (ie, all the points ( x, y ) satisfying either x = 0 or

Solution: v = 2 i + 5 j , so b v b = √ 29, and the unit vector u = 1 b v b v is given by 2 √ 29 i + 5 √ 29 j . b. Find a vector of length 4 pointing in the same direction as v . Solution: This vector is just 4 u = 4 √ 29 i + 20 √ 29 j ....
