Greg made pudding every weekend. The more times he made pudding, the more practice he gained. The time he took to make the same amount of pudding every week decreased with practice. The function below shows the number of hours f(x) Greg took to make pudding after he had made it x times: f(x) = 2(0.8)x Which graph best represents the function? graph of function f of x equals 0.8 multiplied by 2 to the power of x graph of function f of x equals 0.8 to the power of x graph of function f of x equals 2 to the power of x function of f of x equal 2 multiplied by 0.8 to the power of x

After Greg makes the pudding 1 time, it takes him  hours to make it. After Greg makes the pudding 2 times, it takes him  hours to make it After Greg makes the pudding 2 times, it takes him  hours to make it so The function is  Answer: f of x …

The half-life of helium-5 is 7.6 x 10^-22 seconds, and the half-life of helium-9 is 7 x 10^-21 seconds. Approximately how many times greater is the half-life of helium-9 than that of helium-5?

(7X10^-21)/(7.6X10^-22)  is equal to: (7/7.6)(10^-21/10^-22) Rule for division of similar bases with exponents… (a^b)/(a^c)=a^(b-c) In this case we have (10^-21)/(10^-22)=10^(-21–22)=10^1 And 7/7.6≈0.921, and we only had two significant figures so 0.92 works 0.92X10^1 9.2 So the half life of helium-9 is about 9.2 times greater than the half life of …

Pedro has twice as many carrots as Martha, who has the same number of carrots as Oliver. If Pedro gives 5 carrots to Oliver, then Martha has 3 times as many carrots as Pedro. How many carrots does Martha have? a) 10 b) 6 c) 3 d) 2 K) 1

“Pedro has twice as many carrots as Martha:”p = 2m“If Pedro gives 5 carrots to Oliver,” p – 5  (Oliver is irrelevant.) “then Martha has 3 times as many carrots as Pedro” m = 3(p – 5) We know p in terms of m, so substitute it in:m = 3(2m – 5) Distribute the …

Optimization problem:A manufacturer determines that x employees on a certain production line will produce y units per month where . To obtain the maximum monthly production, how many employees should be assigned to the production line?**It is NOT sufficient to find an answer that you think is a max or a min without testing for relative extrema. You MUST test relative extrema at all times by using either the first or second derivative test even if you only have one critical value/point.

Cal problem! given production P(x)=75x^2-0.2x^4 To find relative extrema, we need to find P'(x) and solve for P'(x)=0. P'(x)=150x-0.8x^3    [by the power rule] Setting P'(x)=0 and solve for extrema.150x-0.8x^3=0  =>x(150-0.8x^2)=0 =>0.8x(187.5-x^2)=00.8x(5sqrt(15/2)-x)(5sqrt(15/2)+x)=0=>x={0,+5sqrt(15/2), -5sqrt(15/2)}   by the zero product rule.[note: eqation P'(x)=0 can also be solved by the quadratic formula] Reject negative …

Since a tiny tender child of four,There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,Than to jump aboard a great big ship,A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,To feel the sea breeze in my hair,To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,To be bold and brave and happy as can be,To …

A box has 6 beads of the same size, but all are different colors. Tania draws a bead randomly from the box, notes its color, and then puts the bead back in the box. She repeats this 3 times. What is the probability that Tania would pick a yellow bead on the first draw, then a blue bead, and finally a yellow bead again?

Ahemmm having x-intercepts of -3 and -5.. ..well, that simply means, -3 and -5 are roots or solutions or zeros of the equation it namely means x = -3 and x = -5, an x-intercept is when the graph touches the x-axis, at that point, the y-intercept is 0, so …
