Hello Rob,

I wanted to point out that you put the wrong answer to Math 110 (2016) Q8b - you repeated your answer for Q8a by mistake instead of answering 8b. Can you fix that and then change the flag back to RS.

Thanks, Nina

Hi Nina,

Thank you for pointing this out. I tend to write my solutions on my laptop, save them in plaintext files, and then copy them to the wiki. I copied the wrong one this time.

Lol thanks for fixing the inequality in my solution

Hi Robert,

Thanks so much for your recent contributions. In addition to David Kohler's previous suggestions to you, please also note the following:

- Simply leave a blank line to insert a line break (instead of using a <br> tag)
- Use \bmatrix in math environments for matrices, rather than arrays surrounded by parentheses
- For augmented matrices, insert a bar in between the last two columns by using the array format specification {cc|c}, for example

Not only will these make things look nicer and more consistent, but they will also reduce the amount of typing you need to do!

In this regard, please review the (stylistic) changes I have made to your MATH 152 solutions, which were otherwise excellent!

Thank you for the suggestions! I don't know if you are aware of this, but David's suggestions are like 5 years old, so I kind of forgot about them.

Hi Rob,

Thank you for writing solutions of circuit problems! (Last year, no TA knows the solution for this and thanks to you finally we get the solution!) But for Math Exam Resources/Courses/MATH152/April 2017/Question B 03 (a), it would be great if you move the hint to the solution and write some hint.

Hi Hyunju,

I accidentally copied the solution into the hint! Thanks for pointing this out. I will fix this tomorrow. Until then I'll tag this QBH, QBS.

Hi Robert,

I am not getting the solution of 5(d), to me it doesn't seem to be right, could you check it again? Thank you

Han

I checked the solution. I forgot that it was + sin k and not - sin k (and this has been fixed). Was this your only problem with the solution? Or was there some other error?

I think I made a typo and accidentally had the inequality going the wrong way. I've changed the solution again. Do you think this is better?

Thank you for pointing this out! I must have just been half-asleep when I wrote this solution

Hi Robert,

For MATH102/December 2015/Question 04, could you please check the final answer for which I think should be (d) instead of (a).

Thanks, Ziming

Hi Ziming,

Thank you for catching that! I've made the change. Please check the solution again and let me know if you have any further comments.

Hi Robert,

Please have a look at: Science:Math_Exam_Resources/Courses/MATH101/April_2005/Question_3_(c)/Solution_1 where I made several changes in the display of the mathematics. A few points that I suggest:

- Indent math formulas that are on separate lines by typing :<math>formula</math>
- Use the
*align*environment for multiple equalities (see the code in the page I linked) - in the few cases where the display style is not activated, enforce it manually by typing \displaystyle inside your formula (this is a tex command). See for example the line with
*3dy=dx*in the linked page.

Thanks for all the good work!
