Subject:Graphing question

Hi all!

I am attempting to graph the equation y^x=x^y

I have it in the form of y=p^(p/(p-1))

It seems the graph of y^x=x^y should have the graph of y=x as one part to it, as well as an increasing concave up curve with a y-intercept at 2, (but not defined at (0,2) nor at (1, e). The last part should be a reflection of the previously described curve about the origin.

However, I know this is incorrect because it should have an asymptote at y=1.

The data I get from plotting points with y=p^(p/(p-1)) agrees with my graph.

Could anyone shed any light on any errors I may be making? Thanks

This community hasn't seen any action for quite some time.. hmMmMm.

Well, to set the ball rolling.. (hopefully).

Anyone takes Literature here? I'm taking Gothic Tradition (Jane Eyre, Dracula, The Bloody Chamber and Other Stores), Shakespare and Other Authors (Antony and Cleopatra, HardTimes, The Poetry of John Donne), and Comment and Appreciation (poetry, prose, drama).

Subject:logarithms are killing me!!

I need help with logarithms. Apparently I missed the one class where they went over the properties of logs and I just don't understand the book. Anyone out there who can help me understand what in the world the properties are would be loved forever. :D
BTW, I'll be happy to return the favor in some way if you like, and I'll definitely try to help anyone with their problems...if I can.

Hi. I seriously doubt that I'll get any help with this, but it's worth a try.

I'm currently in Drafting & Design 1, and need help. I was absent for a day and now I have an assignment due tomorrow afternoon, and I have no idea what to do. I don't know what it's exactly called...something like wall sections? This is an idea of what I'm talking about:

If you know ANYTHING at all about this, please contact me. Comment in my journal, IM me or email me. Thank you.

Like they say, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. I'll be sure to not try and help you if I don't have a clue. ;)

Subject:JAVA help needed!
Music:Stroke by Billy Squire

I'm in comp sci. I'm also having a lot of trouble with it. Basic class, basic language. We're doing arrays. However, I'm pretty much iffy on iteration. When do you use a for loop instead of a do while? Does it make a difference? You've got choices here, and I think which you use is supposed to make a difference in what you choose to do with it. Or something to that effect. I finally got the concept of passing params *hallelujah* but we were getting lectured on iteration while I was trying to figure out passing. My books aren't helpful and my GTA is, quite frankly, more confusing than not. I'm going to request an English speaking model next semester. Any insight would be wonderful!

Subject:Mathematics and Computer Science

I'm in the third and final year of my BA, willing to help (and I'm sure I'll have problems too). Maths-wise I'm mainly doing algebra and differential equations, computer science-wise more theoretical than practical. Please ask questions - I need prompting with my revision. The harder the better!

I need help. I hope that someone can help me and I can help someone else. Sorta pay it forward. If you need help with homework, post here! If you don't, check and see if you can help someone. Even if it is all academic at this point.
