Unformatted text preview: 1-2 .) (a) (12 pts.) What is the matrix A ? (b) (8 pts.) What is the matrix A 2 ? 4) Use the approximation formula to estimate the hypotenuse of a right triangle with sides of length 2 . 9 and 4 . 1. Give your answer to two places after the decimal point. 5) A hamster is running clockwise around a circle of radius 2 centered at (0 , 0). It runs with constant speed 3, and stays in the xy-plane (hamsters do not y). At time t = 0, it is at (0 , 2). Find a formula for its position vector r ( t ) as a function of t . This is the end!
