Curves of 40 degrees or more are highly likely to worsen, even in an adult, because the spine is so badly imbalanced that the force of gravity will increase the curvature.

Will any 4 points on a graph produce a Cubic equation?

Any 4 points in the Cartesian plane determine a unique equation that is of degree at most three (i.e., a "cubic" equation). It is, of course, possible that the 4 points actually lie on a degree two ("quadratic"), a degree one ("linear"), or a degree zero ("constant") equation. However, if the 4 points do not lie on a constant, linear, or quadratic curve, then they will like on a unique cubic curve. In general, N points will determine a unique curve of degree at most (N-1).

How do you identify a normal curve?

You cannot. It has a characteristic bell-shaped curve but so does a Student's t with enough degrees of freedom. There are other distributions which, with suitable choice of parameters can be made to look very similar to the Normal curve.

Is there a relationship between the degree of a polynomial and the number of times its graphed curve changes direction?

I think that there is not .

Is an inscribed angle that intercepts an arc whose measure is greater than 180 degrees always acute?

Not if the curve is not a circle.

What is an embedding degree?

In the context of Algebraic Geometry and Cryptography, the embedding degree is a value associated with an algebraic curve, more precisely with a cyclic subgroup of the abelian group associated with the curve.Given an elliptic curve (or an hyperelliptic curve), we can consider its associated abelian group - in the case of an elliptic curve corresponds to the set of points - and a cyclic subgroup G, typically its largest.Using pairings (more notably, the Tate pairing or Weil pairing), we can map G to a subgroup of a finite field.More precisely, if the curve was defined over a finite field of size q, G is mapped to a subgroup of a finite field of size qk for some integer k. The smallest such integer k is called the embedding degree.Moreover, if G has size n it satisfies n | qk - 1 (n divides qk - 1).In Cryptography, the embedding degree most notably appears in security constraints for Elliptic Curve Cryptography and in the more recent area of Pairing Based Cryptography. Pairings allow us to "map" problems over elliptic curves to problems over finite fields and vice-versa with the security and efficiency issues of each side.For example, given the known attacks for the Discrete Logarithm Problem over elliptic curves and over finite fields, in Elliptic Curve Cryptography curves with a very small embedding degree (lower than 6, say) are usually avoided. On the other hand, because in Pairing Based Cryptography operations are often done on both groups, curves with too high embedding degrees are avoided.

You have Scoliosis and your curve is 70 degrees with severe back pain should you consider having surgery?

Hell, yes! Most doctors and orthopedists reccommend surgery beyond a 45-degree curve!

How serious is scoliosis?

It all depends on the degree of your curve, I had around an 85 degree curve, and had to have surgery. but it could be smaller, and you wouldn't have to do anything about it.

Does scoliosis ever go away or not?

I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 11 and went to the doctor every 6 months. When I was 13 I was told that the curve was only 8. If the curve is 10 degrees and under then you are OK and your scoliosis has basically gone away. So to answer your question scoliosis does go away.

Can you get epidural with scoliosis?

it depends on the place and degree of the curve. i could not, but my curve is in the lower spine. a friend of mine could b/c her curve was higher. you need to discuss it with your doctor.

Is scoliosis serious?

Yes it is serious, but not generally life threatening. it depends on the type of curve and degree of curvature. scoliosis can put pressure and the heart and lungs which, if not treated can cause serious problems.

Is scoliosis a backwards curve of the spine?

No. Scoliosis is a sideways curve of the spine. Mine looks like the letter S from behind.

Does scoliosis have a curve in it?

Scoliosis is curvature of the spine, either cervical, thoracic and lumbar

Should you do a physically demanding job with scoliosis?

yes, you can do anything with scoliosis, however you will be EXHAUSTED afterwards depending on how bad you have it i did karate with a 73 degree curve, found it hard to breathe afterwards. just be careful

Should you Get a scoliosis brace or sergury?

It really depends on how bad the scoliosis is and what your doctor recommends. If you have between 15 and 20 degrees it won't be much of a problem but if its from 20 to 35 degrees of an angle, you might meed a brace, and if there is anymore of a curve you would need to consider surgery.

Is it possible to decrease your scoliosis curve by ten degrees in three months?

Although the time it takes to decrease a back curve varies from person to person, it's extremely unlikely that a curve could be decreased that rapidly, unless surgery is performed.
