A soup kitchen makes 16 gallons of soup. Each day, a quarter of the soup is served and the rest is saved for the next day. Write the first five terms of the sequence of the number of fluid ounces of soup left each day. Write an equation that represents the nth term of the sequence. When is all the soup gone?

Since the soup kitchen starts with 16 gallons and there are 128 ounces in 1 gallong, then the first term of the sequence is

If a quarter of the soup is served and the rest is saved for the next day, then three-fourths of the soup is left after each day. The next terms in the sequence can then be found by multiplying each term by

The first five terms of the sequence are then 2048,1536,1152,864,648.

Since the terms have a common ratio of

For the soup to be all gone, you would need an=0 for some value of nn. Multiplying a number by

I've been given a vector space of linear polynomials in x, $p(x)=ax+b$, $q(x)=cx+d$, and the inner product is defined to be $\u27e8p,q\u27e9=ac+bd$. I've been able to verify all the axioms for the inner product except for the complex conjugate one, $\u27e8p,q{\u27e9}^{\ast}=\u27e8q,p\u27e9$, where $p$ and $q$ are vectors.

The issue I'm having is that I don't understand how the complex conjugate can apply if there isn't an $i$ in the equation. All I know is that the complex conjugate takes the form $(ax+iy{)}^{\ast}=ax-iy$, but I'm really confused as to what this means without $i$.

What is the complex conjugate of a vector that doesn't have an imaginary component?

Numerically find the half-iterate of a quadratic

Let's say we have a function$f\left(x\right)=n+mx+l{x}^{2}$ , and want to find another function $h\left(x\right)=a+bx+c{x}^{2}$ such that $h\left(h\left(x\right)\right)=f\left(x\right)$ . Here's what you get when composing h on itself:

$h\left(h\left(x\right)\right)=a+ab+{b}^{2}x+bc{x}^{2}+{a}^{2}c+2abcx+2a{c}^{2}{x}^{2}+{b}^{2}c{x}^{2}+2b{c}^{2}{x}^{3}+{c}^{3}{x}^{4}$

Let's say we have a function
