  1. I'd say that the minimum value of f is slightly less than... I'll play around with it a bit to see how much I can lower it. Another interesting addition might be, once the minimum f is found, to find the minimum travel distance (e.g., amount of gas) needed for some f a little higher than the minimum.
  2. addendum: I didn't come up with this myself. Monty Hall was asked about the Monty Hall problem, and his response was such.
  3. n factorial (represented as n!) is the product of all positive integers up to n. So the number you are looking for is 1,000,000! ("one million factorial")
  4. I'm sure I know what BMAD was saying. Yes, ignore the units / squared units difference. The problem doesn't involve a circle though. You need to find a function f(x) such that the area under the curve between two points is the same as the arc length between those two points along the function. Here the arc length is like the length of a string representing the function cut at the two points. How to find the arc length of a function: Restatement of problem using previous spoiler: One answer is simple, the other is less so.
  5. I looked at that for a while. Though it's not much, here's what I got...
