Calculation:
If MNOP is a dilation of ABCD, then
The scale factor =MNAB
The similarity ratio =ABMN
Hence the scale factor and the similarity ratio are reciprocals.

Is there any relationship similar to the following. Let X be the maximum of functions f 1 ( x ) + f 2 ( x ). Let X 1 be a maximum of f 1 ( x ) and let X 2 be a maximum of f 2 ( x ). Is there any relationship between X and X 1 and X 2 ?

For example can we say under what condition will X be in-between X 1 and X 2 , X 1 X X 2 .

Any reference would be greatly appreciated.

Finding the volume using double integrals
Find the volume of the wedge sliced from the cylinder x 2 + y 2 = 1 by the planes z = a ( 2 x ) and z = a ( x 2 ).
I am confused because x 2 + y 2 = 1 is a unit circle not a cylinder. and the other two are lines in the zx plane where y = 0. I don't see how they are planes, are they planes or are they just lines in the zx plane (when y = 0).
