Math 348 (2006): Assignment #4 due Monday, July 31, 2006 1. Show that any orientation reversing isometry of E 3 can be written as the composition of a reflection and a half-turn. 2. Consider a dilative rotation in E 3 . This is the composition of a dilation O λ about a point O with a rotation R about a line passing through O . This similarity always has an invariant plane. Which plane is it? If θ = 180, there are more invariant planes. Which planes are they? 3. Recall that a regular p -sided polygon has interior angles θ = 180 - 360 p . In a regular polyhedron, we have q such polygons meeting at each vertex. The sum of the angles at each vertex is thus q (180 - 360 p ). The amount by which this sum falls short of 360 is thus 360 - q (180 - 360 p ). Show that this shortfall is exactly equal to 720 V , where V is the number of vertices of the regular polyhedron. That is, prove that 360 - q 180 - 360 p = 720 V 4. Recall that ellipses and hyperbolas are called central conics . Express the eccentricity of a central conic in terms of its semiaxes a and b . What is the eccentricity of a rectangular hyperbola?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
