I apologise in advance if I am in the wrong place and hope you will excuse me and set me right - this is my first time here.
I want to know if there is a specific name for a U shape which, instead of having rounded corners it has square ones, ie. |_| - In other words, I suppose, it is an open ended rectangle. Can anyone help, please?
Wow! The things we learn !
And Dear Sir, Madam,"calculus-geometry," I would venture to ask you another question.
I am almost 74 years of age. Back when in high school, I was basically a dunce at mathematics, primarily because I was afraid to ask questions about difficult matters and simply shut up in front of other classmates. So, it was always my assumption that mathematics was way too "intelligent" for me.
Now I am beginning to wonder, "is that the right conclusion?" I have never done calculus, but hear so much about it. Where would you suggest I start a new journey into learning something about it? Just imagine me to be 10 years old again. In 5 years time, maybe even in 2 years time, calculus will be as easy as pie. Where do I start?
You're never too old to learn something new. In the UK, we have many free courses.
No doubt there'll be local libraries with a host of advice and information! Ask them.
There are lots of free courses on the Internet. Here's one:

How to use calculus expression in Hubpages?I am working on a series of articles that deal with physical chemistry and, thus, a lot of equations(calculus based). Unfortunately, I have yet to find a way to express the math terms in a hub. I need symbols like integration, simultaneous upper and lower...

Okay, there is a trick to this one; you must think outside the box. (Remember, I'm not a mathematician, and I suck at math...so this is more of a creative thinking than a math quiz.)What is the sum of the 1st G, squared?
