Inequality to find the age of siblings is x²+ 11x + 24 ≤ 150.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let the age of Holly is x years. Now from the statements of the question we will form the equations.

Sue was born three years before Holly.

Sue = Holly + 3 = x + 3------(1)

Jeremy = Sue + 5

From equation (1)

Jeremy = (x + 3) + 5 = x + 8------(2)

Now statement says the product of Sue's age and Jeremy's age is at most 150.

Sue × Jeremy ≤ 150

(x + 3)(x + 8) ≤ 150

x² + 11x + 24 ≤ 150

Therefore inequality x² + 11x + 24 ≤ 150 can be used to find the age of each sibling.

Question An 8-oz bottle of ketchup costs$1.39. If the unit rate stays the same, how much should a 14-oz bottle cost?
Solution 1
First, you need to find how much an ounce costs. To do that, you have to divide 1.39 by 8. Then you get about 0.17. Now, you multiply 0.17 by 14, and get the answer of 2.38. Therefore, a 14-oz bottle of ketchup costs $2.38. Solution 2 Cost for 8-oz bottle =$ 1.39
Cost for 1-oz bottle = 8/1.39
= 1.75 ( approx )

Cost for 14-oz bottle of ketchup = 14* cost of 1-oz bottle
= 14* 1.75
= $24.5 Cost for 14-oz of ketchup bottle is$ 24.5

Solution 1
C. 3/4

To simplify, you find the greatest common multiple of 18 and 24, which is 6. As a result, you divide 18 and 24 by 6. 18 divided by 6 is 3, and 24 divided by 6 is 4. Then you get 3/4 as an answer.

Regression equation: y = 3.915(1.106)x the pond can hold 400 water lilies. by what day will the pond be full? write and solve an equation. the pond will be full by the end of day
Solution 1

46 days

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : Regression equation:

Where,

y = amount of water lilies the pond hold

3.915 = represents the initial population.

1.106 = represents the increase in population at time x.

x = is a variable of time.

The pond can hold 400 water lilies ⇒ y=400

Putting values in equation we get,

Taking log both side

By logarithm property -

Approx. x=46

Therefore, 46th day the pond be full.

Solution 2
46 Days

The path of the rocket can be modeled by the equation y = –0.04x2 + 8.3x + 4.3, where x is the horizontal distance, in meters, from the starting point on the roof and y is the height, in meters, of the rocket above the ground.

Solution 1
Problem One
The rocket will hit ground level when y = 0. The plan is is to set y =0 and solve the quadratic. Be careful how you go about to this. It is an odd way to represent this kind of problem. The question does say that y defines how far off the ground the rocket is at the beginning. Therefore the height of the building does not matter (or shouldn't). All that matters is that y is ground level when y = 0.

a = - 0.04
b = 8.3
c = 4.3

From here you should be able to calculate the answer. One of them is -0.52 which is not the one you use. Minus heights do not matter in these problems yet. The other root is your answer.

Problem Two

Problem two is the usual way to express what happens to a projectile in the air. It again is going to be solved by the quadratic equation.

There are two ways to do this problem. If you know physics, you can solve it using the projectile formulas. If you don't , then you can use the trick in the previous problem. You can calculate how long it takes to hit the ground (h will then be zero).

This problem is rather nasty for someone who has not taken physics. There is another trick. You have to divide the time you get from the previous step by 2. When you solve the quadratic for h = 0, you get 11.6 seconds. But that is the time it takes to hit the ground. Half time is when the boulder will be at it's highest point. t = 11.6 / 2 = 5.8 (which your answers record as 5.75).

h = 0

a= -16

b = 184

c = 20

The answer from this equation is t = 11.6

The time you want is t = 5.75. You can calculate the maximum height by putting 5.75 in for t.

Problem 3

Problem 3 is done exactly the same way as problem two. You just have different numbers. When h = 0 the time taken to reach zero = 2.17 seconds. Therefore the time you want to put into the original equation for the maximum height is 1/2 of 2.17 seconds. From there you can find the maximum height.

Note: there is a lot of math in here. I have gotten you past the physics. I have also alluded to the answers. I think you should be able to carry out the rest.
