The Effect of Financial Calculations in the Nigerian Economy

It is true that tiny drops of water can make an ocean but time interval at which it drops and its consistency are the keys. No child becomes an adult within the space of one year. It takes several years of growth and development for that dream to become an obvious reality. One is not left in the dark on the effect of financial calculations in the economy except they’ve chosen to be intentionally blind to its truth.

The economy of a nation or a person can be affected in no small way by certain financial calculations like taxes,charges etc both positively and negatively depending on who receives and who gives. A nation involved in international trade have the responsibility of paying certain levies saddled on her shoulder, some of which might be too high and could possibly devalue her currency.

Business owners also owe it to certain government bodies to pay taxes at a fixed rate which might possibly increase with the fleeting of years and takes no consideration of the woes and fortunes of the business owner per time. Though it is a decent source of fund that can be cruel to those it is being sourced from,revenues are being generated when these funds are invested in certain sectors that have been known for wholesale delivery of bountiful returns,which in turn can serve as a means of giving back to the society and people who labour to make policies, enforce and carry it out in different strata of the working sector.

How To Get Answers and Steps For a Function of a Function Differentiation (Calculus) Problem Using The Calculator Encyclopedia

According to Wikipedia,

In mathematicsdifferential calculus is a sub-field of calculus concerned with the study of the rates at which quantities change. It is one of the two traditional divisions of calculus, the other being integral calculus, the study of the area beneath a curve.

Nickzom Calculator calculates function of a function for the following formats:

    • (expression)n
    • k(expression)n
    • sin(expression)
    • ksin(expression)
    • cos(expression)
    • kcos(expression)
    • tan(expression)
    • ktan(expression)
    • sinh(expression)
    • ksinh(expression)
    • cosh(expression)
    • kcosh(expression)
    • cot(expression)
    • kcot(expression)
    • cosec(expression)
    • kcosec(expression)
    • In(expression)
    • kIn(expression)
    • loga(expression)
    • kloga(expression)
    • e(expression)
    • ke(expression)
    • a(expression)
    • ka(expression)

k, a and in the formats above represents constants.

The expression represents a polynomial, quadratic or linear mathematical statement, such as:

  • 3x + 5
  • 4x2 + 2x + 1
  • 2x3 + 7x + 12
  • 5x4 + 3x3 + 4x2 + 12x + 15

So implementing the expressions and applying constant numbers here is a list of what the function of a function formats look like that can be solved by Nickzom Calculator and also display the steps (workings).

      • (2x2 + 3x + 5)7
      • 4(2x + 1)6
      • sin(2x2 + 3x + 5)
      • 2sin(3x + 5)
      • cos(3x + 5)
      • 2cos(3x + 5)
      • tan(2x3 + 3x2 + 4x + 5)
      • 3tan(7x + 6)
      • sinh(2x4 + 12)
      • 2sinh(3x + 10)

      • 3cot(3x + 5)
      • cosec(x + 12)
      • 7cosec(2x + 7)
      • In(x3 + 2x + 7)
      • 2In(2x2 + 3x + 12)
      • log3(3x + 7)
      • 2log2(x2 + 4x + 8)
      • e(3x + 5)
      • 2e(2x + 3)
      • 2(7x + 2)
      • 7 . 2(6x + 7)

The Calculator Encyclopedia Converts Units of Illumination in Light Conversions

According to Wikipedia,

Lighting or illumination is the deliberate use of light to achieve a practical or aesthetic effect. Lighting includes the use of both artificial light sources like lamps and light fixtures, as well as natural illumination by capturing daylightDaylighting (using windows, skylights, or light shelves) is sometimes used as the main source of light during daytime in buildings. This can save energy in place of using artificial lighting, which represents a major component of energy consumption in buildings. Proper lighting can enhance task performance, improve the appearance of an area, or have positive psychological effects on occupants.

The calculator encyclopedia converts 12 units of illumination. These units are:

  • Lux
  • Meter-Candle
  • Centimeter-Candle
  • Foot-Candle
  • Flame
  • Phot
  • Nox
  • Candela Steradian/sq. m
  • Lumen/sq. m
  • Lumen/sq. cm
  • Lumen/sq. ft
  • Watt/sq. cm (at 555nm)

To commence this conversion, proceed to the Calculator Map, click on Light Switches under Switches (Unit Conversion).

Nickzom Calculator Calculates Permutation and Combination With Steps – The Calculator Encyclopedia

According to Wikipedia,

In mathematics, the notion of permutation relates to the act of arranging all the members of a set into some sequence or order, or if the set is already ordered, rearranging (reordering) its elements, a process called permuting.

In mathematics, a combination is a selection of items from a collection, such that (unlike permutations) the order of selection does not matter.

Getting answers and workings (steps) for permutation and combination problems in Nickzom Calculator – The Calculator Encyclopedia is very simple and I would very much love to show you how you can do this easily.

The Importance of STEM (Science, Technological, Engineering and Mathematics) in Nigeria

Every new development, be it positive or negative has its importance and disadvantages as well. Its importance gives it a penetration advantage to be valued and appreciated in spite of its disadvantages. Just like the reality of sickness created opportunities for doctors to be valued and appreciated in their sphere of influence for saving lives, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics have not done any less. Not only does it create opportunities, it also suggests ways those opportunities can be harnessed.

 

In our present age of growing advancement, the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) cannot be overemphasized as its relevance finds expression in our day to day activities as humans ranging from the alarm clocks that greet us in the morning, the alarm bells that alerts us of a visitor, the automobiles that convey us to our places of work and the stair lifts that finally lands us on the floor of our offices. Its importance is not only appreciated in the industries, roads and all other obvious infrastructure where it is easily spotted but has also been domesticated such that some equipment used in the preparation of sumptuous meals owe its allegiance to them.

Nickzom Calculator Calculates Maximum Height of a Projectile

According to SoftSchools.com,

A projectile is an object that is given an initial velocity, and is acted on by gravity. The maximum height of the object is the highest vertical position along its trajectory. The maximum height of the projectile depends on the initial velocity v0, the launch angle θ, and the acceleration due to gravity. The unit of maximum height is meters (m).

Nickzom Calculator calculates the maximum height of a projectile given the accurate values for the required parameters. The required parameters to get the answer to maximum height are:

  • Acceleration due to Gravity
  • Initial Velocity
  • Angle of Projection

Let’s get started, first and foremost, proceed to the home page of the app, select Physics and click on Open Section.
