## The data set shown below represents the number of times some families went out for dinner the previous week. 4, 2, 2, 0, 1, 6, 3, 2, 5, 1, 2, 4, 0, 1 Create a dot plot to represent the data. What can you conclude about the dot plot of the data set? Check all that apply. The range of the number line should be 0 to 7 to represent the frequency. Four families said they ate out twice the previous week. One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week. The data set is symmetrical. The median best represents the data set.

The correct options are:

• Four families said they ate out twice the previous week.
• One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week.
• The median best represents the data set.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given a data set as:

4, 2, 2, 0, 1, 6, 3, 2, 5, 1, 2, 4, 0, 1

On arranging this data set in the frequency table we get:

Number of times they went for dinner    Number of families

0                                                          2

1                                                           3

2                                                          4

3                                                           1

4                                                           2

5                                                           1

6                                                            1

• Hence, the range of the number line is between 0 to 6.
• Also there are 4 dots above 2.

Hence,  Four families said they ate out twice the previous week.

• Also there is one dot above 5.

Hence,  One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week.

• The data set is not symmetrical since the median is 2 and the data points to the left and to the right do not have symmetry.

Hence, the data set is not symmetrical.

• Also we know that the median of the data is the central tendency of the data and always best represents the data.

Hence, The median best represents the data set.

## There are 150 marigold plants in a back yard. Each month, the number of marigold plants decreases by 15%. There are 125 sunflower plants in the back yard. Each month, 8 sunflower plants are removed. Part A: Write functions to represent the number of marigold plants and the number of sunflower plants in the back yard throughout the months. (4 points) Part B: How many marigold plants are in the back yard after 3 months? How many sunflower plants are in the back yard after the same number of months? (2 points) Part C: After approximately how many months is the number of marigold plants and the number of sunflower plants the same? Justify your answer mathematically. (4 points)

If a quantity A is decreased by 15%, it means that what is left is 85% of it.

85%A=

Part A.

Consider the 150 marigolds.

After the first month, 0.85*150 are left
After the second month, 0.85*0.85*150=
After the third month, 0.85*0.85*0.85*150 =
.
.
so After n months,  marigolds are left.

in functional notation:  is the function which gives the number of marigolds after n months

consider the 125 sunflowers.

After 1 month, 125-8 are left
After 2 months, 125-8*2 are left
After 3 months, 125-8*3 are left
.
.
After n months, 125-8*n sunflowers are left.

In functional notation: S(n)=125-8*n is the function which gives the number of sunflowers left after n months

Part B.

marigolds are left after 3 months.

S(3)=125-8*3=125-24=121 sunflowers are left after 3 months.

Part C.

Answer : equalizing M(n) to S(n) produces an equation which is very complicated to solve algebraically.

A much better approach is to graph both functions and see where they intersect.

Another approach is by trial, which gives 14 months

which are close numbers to each other.

## To fit in an existing frame, the length, x, of a piece of glass must be longer than 12 cm but not longer than 12.2 cm. Which inequality can be used to represent the lengths of the glass that will fit in the frame? 12 x ≤ 12.2 x > 12 or x ≤ 12.2 x

The inequality that will represent the length of the glass that will fit in the frame is:

12 < x ≤ 12.2

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given that:

To fit in an existing frame, the length, x, of a piece of glass must be longer than 12 cm but not longer than 12.2 cm.

It means that the length has to be strictly greater than 12 cm but less than or equal to 12.2 cm.

Hence, the inequality that can be used to represent the lengths of the glass that will fit in the frame is:

12 < x ≤ 12.2

## Mai is putting money into a savings account. She starts with \$350 in the savings account, and each week she adds \$60 . Let S represent the total amount of money in the savings account (in dollars), and let W represent the number of weeks Mai has been adding money. Write an equation relating S to W . Then use this equation to find the total amount of money in the savings account after 12 weeks. Equation: Total amount of money after 12 weeks: \$

S=60w+ 350. Because you get \$60 times the amount of weeks,plus the first \$350 she started with. She ends up with \$1070 dollars because \$60 x 12= 720, then you add the first \$350 and get \$1070. Hope this helped.

## Read this excerpt from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death” and answer the question that follows. Here the case was very different, as might have been expected from the duke’s love of the bizarre. The apartments were so irregularly disposed that the vision embraced but little more than one at a time. There was a sharp turn at every twenty or thirty yards, and at each turn a novel effect. To the right and left, in the middle of each wall, a tall and narrow Gothic window looked out upon a closed corridor which pursued the windings of the suite. These windows were of stained glass whose colour varied in accordance with the prevailing hue of the decorations of the chamber into which it opened. That at the eastern extremity was hung, for example in blue—and vividly blue were its windows. The second chamber was purple in its ornaments and tapestries, and here the panes were purple. The third was green throughout, and so were the casements. The fourth was furnished and lighted with orange—the fifth with white—the sixth with violet. The seventh apartment was closely shrouded in black velvet tapestries that hung all over the ceiling and down the walls, falling in heavy folds upon a carpet of the same material and hue. . . .And thus were produced a multitude of gaudy and fantastic appearances. What kind of writing does the excerpt represent?

The answer should be D. Argumentative! It makes an argument that also persuades you in a different way but only of the sense that this time it is knocking what argument you made down. Have a good rest of your day!

## The image below represents the Sun on January 1 seen from North America. The letters represent the directions (east, south, and west). What time of day could it be?

From the image, we are able to see that the sun is not directly overhead, which means that the time is not noon.

Using the directions provided, we can see that the sun has moved past the position in noon, remembering that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Therefore, we know that the time is past noon. Finally, the sunlight is still falling on the land, which means that it is not yet night time. Out of the given options, 3:35 PM is most likely to be correct.

## A function is shown below: f(x) = (0.07)x What does the function represent? Exponential growth of 7% Exponential decay of 7% Exponential growth of 93% Exponential decay of 93%

Exponential decay of 93%

Step-by-step explanation:

A function is shown below:

f(x) = (0.07)^x

Exponential formula is

r is the rate of growth or decay

From the given f(x) , we have 1+r = 0.07

Subtract 1 from both sides

To get % we multiply by 100

r= -93%

the value of ‘r’ is negative , so its exponential decay

Exponential decay of 93%

A is incorrect. It says that the kite slowly went up and quickly came down, but in the graph, it slopes up quickly and falls down slowly

B is incorrect. It says Michelle ran up a steep hill which would take a longer time because it is harder to go up a steep hill.

C is correct. It says Michelle ran to the end of her street, which means she went pretty quick. In the graph, it goes up pretty fast. Then, Michelle jogged back slower, and in the graph, it slows down

D is incorrect. It does not really tell how long the bird ate the seeds. There is just not enough information

## A math teacher wants to find out the average number of hours his students spend working on their math homework for his class each week. Which group would best represent a sample of the population? the first 30 students who enter the school building one morning 30 students selected from the lunchroom 30 students selected from his class rosters 30 students who stay after school for football practice

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

= 47,129,212,243,960 different ways the qualifiying round of 30 competitors can be selected from the 50 competitors.

## According to Deborah Tannen in “You Just Don’t Understand: Men and Women in Conversation,” which statement is true about gender and listening behavior? A. Men and women listen in the same way. B. Women listen less to men than men listen to women. C. Men ask more argumentaive questions or seek to puncture holes in the other person’s position than do women. D. The differences represent negative motives on the part of both men and women.

Explanation:  Animals, however well preserved and bred in conditions that are not in nature, that is, not in their natural habitat, animals still retain the animal instinct. Thus, young animals in the wild can be met daily, except for members of their species, and members of all other species, including predators, as well as humans. This means that in the natural environment, young animals can find themselves in a variety of dangers on a daily basis, but not only that. In this way young animals develop their ability to survive, escape from predators, manage, and develop their hunting skills, etc. All this is essential for socialization because according to all these developed skills and abilities their socialization depends. To deny any of the conditions prevailing in the wild means to deny the development of any skill or instinct, to deny proper socialization.
