Subsections
The purpose of this lab is to introduce you to Maple commands for
differentiation that we will need in subsequent labs and to introduce
you to Maple techniques for solving systems of equations.
For this lab, we are trying something a little different. The
background material, examples, and exercises are all in a Maple
worksheet. To complete this lab, you
copy that worksheet to your home directory with the following command,
which must be run in a terminal window, not in Maple.
cp ~bfarr/Solving2.mws ~
Once you have copied the worksheet over, you can load it into Maple
and get started on the lab.
 First, enter the following functions in Maple. Then compute the
derivatives using the
diff command for the first function and the D
operator for the second function.


 Find the equation of the circle that passes through the three
points , , and . Use the
implicitplot command to plot the circle. (Hint  the general
equation for a circle is given below.)
 Solving implicitly, find where the circle from the previous
exercise intersects the parabola .
