## Read the passage from Hamlet, Act I, Scene iii. Polonius: Beware Of entrance to a quarrel, but, being in, Bear ’t that th’ opposed may beware of thee. Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice; Take each man’s censure, but reserve thy judgment. Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy, But not express’d in fancy; rich, not gaudy … Shakespeare’s word choice in the passage creates a tone that is argumentative. cautious. conceited. nervous.

Shakespeare’s word choice in the passage creates a tone that is cautious.

In Act 1 Scene III of the play “Hamlet,” Polonius gives certain advises to his son Laertes who is preparing to leave for France. He advises him to keep control of his words and to behave in the most practical manner in the ship. He asks him to restrain himself from the bad company, and rash decisions. Advising on the matter of dress and attire he asks him to dress richly but not gaudily. He also asks him not to borrow or lend money.

## Sam wants to buy 8 pencils and 6 pens, which cost a total of \$8.50. He realizes he doesn’t have enough cash and instead takes only 4 of each, which costs only \$5. What is the price of each pen and pencil? pen, \$0.75; pencil, \$0.50

X = pencils, y = pens

8x + 6y = 8.50
4x + 4y = 5…..multiply by -2
—————-
8x + 6y = 8.50
-8x – 8y = -10 (result of multiplying by -2)
-2y = – 1.50
y = -1.50 / -2
y = 0.75 <=== pens cost 0.75

4x + 4y = 5
4x + 4(0.75) = 5
4x + 3 = 5
4x = 5 – 3
4x = 2
x = 2/4
x = 0.50 <== pencils cost 0.50

## Jack paid \$13.75 to buy slices 3 of pizza and 4 hot dogs at a concession stand. Sarah paid \$9.75 to buy 2 slices of pizza and 3 hot dogs from the same stand. What was the price of a slice of pizza?

\$13.75 = 3p + 4d
\$9.75 = 2p + 3d

Using 2nd equation, divide all factors by 3 to isolate hot dog price and solve in terms of pizza price:

3.25 = 2/3p + d
3.25 – 2/3p = d

Now substitute for d in the other equation:

\$13.75 = 3p + 4(3.25 – 2/3p)

Distribute the 4:

\$13.75 = 3p + 13 – 8/3p

Combine factors of p:

\$13.75 = 9/3p – 8/3p + 13
\$13.75 = 1/3p + 13

Isolate and solve for p:

\$13.75 -13 = 1/3p

0.75= 1/3p

0.75 * 3 = p
2.25 = p

The price of pizza was \$2.25 per slice.

## Larry wants to buy some carpeting for his living room. The length of the room is 3 times the width and the total area of the room is 27 square meters.

Answer:  The correct option is (C). 10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared

Step-by-step explanation:  Given that the segment AB has point A located at (8, 9). The distance from A to B is 10 units.

We are to select the correct option that could be used to calculate the coordinates for point B.

Let, (x, y) be the co-ordinates of point B.

According to distance formula, the distance between two points (a, b) and (c, d) is given by

Therefore, the distance between the points A(8, 9) and B(x, y) is given by

Since, distance between A and B is 10 units, so

d = 10.

Therefore,

Thus, the correct statement is

10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared.

Option (C) is correct.

## Shawn wants to buy a cd player that costs \$48.00. If he has already saved \$30.00, what percent of the price of the cd player has he saved?

Number of copy machines must be made to minimize the unit cost=160.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given that the unit cost function C ( the cost in dollars to make each copy machine)

Then the unit cost function is given by

We have to find the number of copy machines for  minimize the unit  cost

Differentiate with respect to x

Then we get

……(equation I)

To find the value of x then we susbtitute is equal to zero

By using division property of equality

Again differentiate the equation I with respect to x then we get

Hence, the unit cost is minimize for x=160

Therefore, the number of copy machines must be made to minimize the unit cost =160

## Alice wants to buy some paper towels. She has two options. She can either buy a package of four rolls or she can buy one roll now and buy another when she runs out. Which of these options is better? Give reasons for your answer.

The basis to respond this question are:

1) Perpedicular lines form a 90° angle between them.

2) The product of the slopes of two any perpendicular lines is – 1.

So, from that basic knowledge you can analyze each option:

a.Lines s and t have slopes that are opposite reciprocals.

TRUE. Tha comes the number 2 basic condition for the perpendicular lines.

slope_1 * slope_2 = – 1 => slope_1 = – 1 / slope_2, which is what opposite reciprocals means.

b.Lines s and t have the same slope.

FALSE. We have already stated the the slopes are opposite reciprocals.

c.The product of the slopes of s and t is equal to -1

TRUE: that is one of the basic statements that you need to know and handle.

d.The lines have the same steepness.

FALSE: the slope is a measure of steepness, so they have different steepness.

e.The lines have different y intercepts.

FALSE: the y intercepts may be equal or different. For example y = x + 2 and y = -x + 2 are perpendicular and both have the same y intercept, 2.

f.The lines never intersect.

FALSE: perpendicular lines always intersept (in a 90° angle).

g.The intersection of s and t forms right angle.

TRUE: right angle = 90°.

h.If the slope of s is 6, the slope of t is -6

FALSE. – 6 is not the opposite reciprocal of 6. The opposite reciprocal of 6 is – 1/6.

So, the right choices are a, c and g.

Solution:

The Given Rectangle having dimensions

Length = 80 cm

Let the Six squares which has been cut from this rectangle have side of length a cm.

Area of each square = (Side)²= a²

Area of 6 Identical Squares = 6 × a²= 6 a²

If four squares are cut from four corners and two along Length,

then , Length of Box = (80 – 3 a)cm, Breadth of Box = (50 – 2 a)cm, Height = a cm

Volume of Box =V = Length × Breadth × Height

V = (80 – 3 a)× (50 – 2 a)× a

V   = 4000 a – 310 a² + 6 a³

For Maximum Volume

V’= 0 , where V’ = Derivative of V with respect to a.

V’= 4000 – 620 a + 18 a²

V’ =0

18 a² – 620 a + 4000= 0

9 a² – 310 a + 2000=0

using determinant method

cm

V”=1 8 a – 310 = -ve

which shows , when a = 8.6 cm , volume is maximum.

So, V = 4000×8.6 – 310×(8.6)²+6×(8.6)³=15288.736 cm³

OR

If four squares are cut from four corners and two along Breadth,

then , Length of Box = (80 – 2 a)cm, Breadth of Box = (50 –  3 a)cm, Height = a cm

Volume of Box =V = Length × Breadth × Height

V = (80 – 2 a)× (50 – 3 a)× a

V   = 4000 a – 340 a² + 6 a³

For Maximum Volume

V’= 0 , where V’ = Derivative of V with respect to a.

V’= 4000 – 680 a + 18 a²

V’ =0

18 a² – 680 a + 4000= 0

9 a² – 340 a + 2000=0

Using Determinant method

cm

V”=18 a -340= -ve value when a = 7.6 cm, shows volume is maximum when a = 7.6 cm

V= 4000×7.6 -340 × (7.6)² +6× (7.6)³=13395.456 cubic cm

## As the product life cycle curve approaches the decline state, a company can attempt to jumpstart the curve again by doing which of the following? find new users and new uses increase the size of their sales force increase the advertising budget increase free samples as incentives to buy none of the above

The Contribution Margin per unit (CM) can be calculated
from the difference of Selling Price per unit (SP) and Total Expenses per unit
(TE).

First, let’s calculate the value of SP:

SP = Sales / Units sold

SP = \$1,043,400 / 22,200 units sold

SP = \$47

Second, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = \$234,948 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$8.4

Direct labor per unit = \$131,459 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = \$240,542 / 27,970
units manufactured = \$8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = \$113,220 / 22,200
units sold = \$5.1

TE = \$26.8

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = \$47 – \$26.8

CM = \$20.2 per unit
