    dy/dx = bet

    y * x^10 = 50x^100^1/2
    y = (50x^100^1/2)/(x^10)
    y' = (500x^9)/(10x^9)
    y' = 50

    Next question:

    In 1990 the developer of a popular internet mail program named his new product in honor of this Pulitzer Prize willing author. He said that he was inspired by one of her stories. Name this US author!

    You have until 12:00 pm board time on Friday to PM your answer since I posted later than I planned. [face_peace]

    Just think about because this one is really easy, unless you make it too hard.

    Good luck!! [face_good_luck]

    According to the board clock, I was walking up to my high school from the bus stop when you posted, so of course I couldn't respond until later.

    50 points.

    That's why yahoo and google exist. :p
    I hadn't heard of Eudora either but now I can say "Hey, I've heard of her before!" :p

    Plus, I'm interested in reading her stories because Connie seems to really like her. ;)

    I have heard of Eudora. I just didn't think it was all that popular.

    y = bet

    y/10 = 25^1/2
    y/10 = 5
    y = 5 * 10
    y = 50

    All you had to do was look up mail programs.:D I checked before I posted the question.
    It's all in how you word your searches.[face_peace]

    Bets are in!

    Next question:

    Forbes Magazine estimated this young British actor's earnings for the year 2007 to be at $15 million. He is well known for his pranks, once showing up on the set with bloodied pieces of plaster sticking to his face. He told them he had been fighting the previous day (just for laughs). Who is this actor?


    Since I'm such a sweetheart I'll give you until Monday at 10:00am board time.

    Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    Good luck![face_good_luck]
