LUCKY SOD!

YEP.

IS NOW JEALOUS OF ^

YOU'LL GET OVER IT.

AM WONDERING WHERE ASH IS, THE GAMES FORUMS ARE ODDLY QUIET TODAY.

I TOO WONDER WHERE ASH IS, TIS UNLIKE HER TO BE AWAY THIS LONG.

PAPERBIRO, I WAS WITH YOU RIGHT UP UNTIL METHOD. THE REST OF IT WAS A BUNCH OF CRAZY MUMBO JUMBO.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT MY MATHS TEACHER MEANS BY "METHOD OF SMALL INCREASES" WITH REGARDS TO FINDING A TANGENT OF A CURVE? I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT THIS TERM.

THERES NO SUCH TERM AS "METHOD OF SMALL INCREASES".

THE ONLY THING I THINK IT MAY REFER TO IS THE LIMIT DEFINITION OF THE DERIVATIVE WHICH IS

Code:

```
lim [U]f(a+h) - f(a)[/U]
h->0 h
```

OR THE VARIANT WHERE x = a + h

Code:

```
lim [U]f(x) - f(a)[/U]
x->a x - a
```

IF YOU'RE CALCULATING THE TANGENT OF A CURVE AT POINT A, THEN MAYBE "METHOD OF SMALL

BUT I COULD JUST BE TALKING RUBBISH, YOU'RE PROBABLY WELL BEYOND THIS STAGE AND INTO INTEGRALS FOR ALL I KNOW.

THAT WENT OVER MY HEAD, I HAVE GOOD MATHS SKILLS, BUT SUCK ALMIGHTILY AT ALGEBRA.

SHE'S BACK!

I AIN'T GONNA RUN LIKE A COWARD, GET BACK HERE AND STAND YOUR GROUND.

OK, I'LL JUST USE YOU AS A HUMAN SHIELD IN CASE ANYTHING HAPPENS THOUGH.

DO YOUR WORST!
