Ok my turn.
This one's easy.

What's the derivative of 3x^3 - 3(4^5)^3

(5i*3i-(-6)^3)/3

*note*i denotes "imaginary numbers" It is not a variable

well, the second half is a constant so that goes to:

0[3(4^5)^3]^-1
=0

I didn't see any point adding + 0.

Solve for x:
log(x) + 1= x^2

Whoops that was impossible. Fixed!

and that right!!! I was really just looking for you to write down the simplified derivative, but that is acceptable.

You forgot to square the "i" and you must've missed the other minus sign.

No, then you didn't put the parenthesis in the right spot.

You cube the -6 which gives you -216, and 5i*3i is an integer

There used to be a thread in the Games/Puzzles/Trivia/Jokes thread called Calculate this.
Those questions were a bit tougher though..

no. ok If you multiply imaginary numbers, you get a negative number, since 1i = sqrt(-1) so 5i *3i = -15. so -15-(-216)=?
