# Michelle purchased 25 audio files in january . in February she purchased 40 audio files. what is the percent increase ?

QUESTION POSTED AT 14/12/2019 - 05:03 PM

So, first: what is the absolute increase?

The absolute increase is: 40-25=15. So the absolute increase is 15.

Now, 15 is what percentage of 25?

we count this as follows:

0.8*100%=80%.

So percent increase is 80%.

She begins by plotting the point (1, 15). Which could be the next point she plots on the graph? (2, 9) (2, –10) (2, 14 2/5) (2, 5) The answer is (2,9). This is because we can increment X by 1, giving us X=2. We can then do: f(2)=25•(3/5)^2 Which equals: f(2)=25•(3^2/5^2) because (a/b)^c = a^c/b^c.

Since they value of the book is decaying, we are going to adapt the standard exponential decay function to solve this.

Exponential decay function:

where

is the final amount remaining after years of decay

is the initial amount

is the decay rate in decimal form

is the time in years

Now, let's adapt the equation to suit our needs

Since the value of the book is decaying with the number of owners and not with time, we are going to let be the number of previous owners instead of time. So now will represent the final cost of the book after owners, and will be the initial cost of the book.

Exponential decay function:

where

is the final cost of the book after owners

is the initial cost of the book

is the decay rate in decimal form

is the number of previous owners

Now, we know from our problem that the initial cost of the book is $85, so . We also know that the resale value of a textbook decreases by 25% with each previous owner; to convert the decay rate (25%) to decimal form, we are going to divide it by 100%: We have everything we need so let's replace the values in our exponential decay equation: We can conclude that the correct answer is A) f(x) = 85(1 – 0.25)^x ANSWERED AT 18/01/2020 - 07:07 AM QUESTION POSTED AT 18/01/2020 - 07:07 AM ### Which quotient will be negative? 36 ÷ (-4) 40 ÷ 8 -42 ÷ (-7) 12 ÷ 4 I think the answer will be like this: 36÷(-4)= -9 40÷8=5 -42÷(-7)=6 12÷4=3 so the answer is 36÷(-4) ANSWERED AT 18/01/2020 - 07:05 AM QUESTION POSTED AT 18/01/2020 - 07:05 AM ### Mira picked two numbers from a bowl.

She is saving up to buy a new pair of jeans that cost$48. If she mows the lawn x times and babysits for y hours, which graph shows the amount of work she needs to complete to earn at least enough to purchase the new jeans?

To graph this we find the x- and y-intercepts. The x-intercept would be at 8 and the y-intercept would be at 6.

Explanation:
The equation is 6x+8y=48. An x-intercept is the point where the data crosses the x-axis. All points on this line will have a y-coordinate of 0, so we replace y with 0 and solve:
6x+8(0)=48
6x=48.

Divide both sides by 6:
6x/6=48/6
x=8.
We go to 8 on the x-axis and plot the point.

A y-intercept is the point where the data crosses the y-axis. All points on this line will have an x-coordinate of 9, so we replace x with 0 and solve: 6(0)+8y=48
0+8y=48
8y=48.

Divide both sides by 8:
8y/8 = 48/8
y=6.

We go up to 6 on the y-axis and plot the point. We then draw a line through these two points.

### A large pharmaceutical company is trying to determine whether a drug aptly named Recall-Pro can increase your short-term memory capacity. The company prepares a double-blind study as follows: Step 1: A randomly selected pool of individuals is brought to a clinic and is evaluated for any existing health conditions that may impair the results of this experiment. Step 2: The remaining individuals are split into two groups: a treatment group and a control group. Step 3: The control group receives a placebo, but neither the researcher nor the individuals know this. Step 4: The treatment group receives Recall-Pro, but neither the researcher nor the individuals know this. Which step is flawed in the double-blind study? Why? A.Step 1; health screening should not eliminate participants from the study B.Step 2; it does not specify whether the two groups are chosen randomly C.Step 3; the control group does not receive the placebo D.Step 4; members of the treatment group should know that they have received the medication

The best answer to the question that is being stated above would be letter B. Step 2 is the one that is flawed in the double-blind study because it does not specify that the two groups were randomly chosen. It is important to assign the participants randomly so that the results give a non-confounded result.

### Which of the following is not a disadvantage of using cash instead of credit? a. Using cash will not help you improve your credit rating. b. Using cash can be awkward when making large purchases. c. Using cash generally requires trips to the bank or ATM to keep cash on hand. d. Using cash can make it easier to over-spend since you know exactly how much you have.

D) Using cash can make it easier to over-spend since you know exactly how much you have.

Explanation:

Knowing exactly how much you have on hand will actually help you avoid over-spending.

When using cash, you are aware of exactly how much money you have. With a credit card, this may not be the case; this makes it easier with a credit card to spend more money than you should for your budget. With cash it's easier to avoid this problem.

### Melinda and Paul shovel driveways and sidewalks in the winter as a way to earn extra money. Together they shoveled 450 square feet of sidewalk in 30 minutes. Then Melinda shoveled for 20 minutes while Paul shoveled for 25 minutes to complete 345 square feet of driveway. 30x + 30y = 450 20x + 25y = 345 How much more can Paul shovel in 1 minute than Melinda? 3 square feet per minute 6 square feet per minute 9 square feet per minute 15 square feet per minute

we have the system of equations

30x + 30y = 450

20x + 25y = 345

where x is the number of square feet of snow that Melinda shovels in one minute, and y is the number of square feet of snow that Paul shovels in one minute.

Let's solve the system of equations, first, isolate one of the therms in the first equation, for example, x.

30x+30y = 450

x + y = 450/30 = 15

x = 15 - y

now we can replace it in the second equation and solve it for y.

20x + 25y = 345

20(15 - y) + 25y = 345

300 - 20y + 25y = 345

5y = 45

y = 45/5 = 9

Paul can shovel 9 square feets of snow in one minute, now replace it in the first equation and solve it for x.

x + y = 450/30 = 15

x + 9 = 15

x = 15 - 9 = 6

so melinda sholves 6 square feet of snow in one minute.

The question is:

How much more can Paul shovel in 1 minute than Melinda?

We need to see the difference y - x = 9 - 6 = 3

this means that paul shovels 3 more square feet per minute than Melinda.
