Option C is correct.

The kind of growth model is shown in the table is exponential

Step-by-step explanation:

Exponential growth function is in the form of :  y = ab^x  ......[1];   where a is the initial value and b> 0.

Consider any two point from the table:

(1 , 5) and ( 2 , 25)

Substitute these in the equation [1] we get;

5 = ab^1         ......[2]

25 = ab^2      ......[3]

Divide equation [3] by [2] we have;

\frac{25}{5} = \frac{ab^2}{ab}


5 = b

Now substitute this value in equation [2] we get;

5 = a \times 5

Divide both sides by 5 we get;

\frac{5}{5} = \frac{5a}{5}


1=a or a = 1

Therefore, the table shown the  exponential growth function is, y = 5^x

A random sample of 125 students is chosen from a population of 4,000 students. If the mean IQ in the sample is 100 with a standard deviation of 8, what is the 98% confidence interval for the students' mean IQ score?

Answer: 98.33 - 101.67

Step-by-step explanation:

The given Sample mean n= 100  

Standard deviation\sigma=8

Mean IQ in the sample \bar{x}=125

Standard error of mean = \frac{\sigma}{\sqrt{\bar{x}}}

Standard error of mean = \frac{8}{\sqrt{125}}

Thus, standard error =\frac{8}{11.180}

Standard error of mean (SE)= 0.7155  

We know that  z - score for 98% confidence interval is 2.33 .

Now, 98% confidence interval will be

n-z(SE) and n+z(SE)

=100-(0.7155)(2.33)\ and\ 100+(0.7155)(2.33)  

=100-1.66726\ and\ 100+1.66726

=98.33274\ and\ 101.667

Hence, the 98% confidence interval for the students' mean IQ score will be 98.33 - 101.67

Find the area of the shaded portion of the diagram (use 3.14 for p).A)220.16 square yardsB)6.88 square yardsC)55.04 square yardsD)13.76 square yards

Get the area of the circle. Use this formula: 
Area =  \pi * radius^2

We know the radius is 4 yards.

Area = 3.14 * 4^2
Area = 3.14 * 16
Area = 50.24

Now for the square. Double the radius to get the diameter to get the length of the side.

4 * 2 = 8

Formula for finding the area of a square is
Area = side^2

Area = 8^2
Area = 64

And because we only want to shaded portion, we will subtract the area of the circle from the square.

64 - 50.24 = 13.76

D) 13.76 square yards is the answer to this question.

Jonathan and Sarah purchased a beach house for $10,000,000. The home appreciates at a rate of 3% per year. The appreciation of the house is shown in the graph. The home is currently worth about $13,000,000. Jonathan and Sarah have owned the home for about ______ years. how many years

Current worth = 10,000,000 * (1.03)^years
We must determine the years when current worth = 13,000,000
13,000,000 / 10,000,000 = 1.03^years
1.3 = 1.03^years
Taking logs of both sides:
log (1.3) = years*log(1.03)
log(1.3) / log(1.03) = years
0.11394335231 / 0.012837224705 = years
years = 8.8760113598
Roughly about 8.9 years

Which type of data is BEST described by a continuous model? A) points scored B) pages in a book C) children in a family D) temperature of an engine

The meaning of term continuous is that there should be no breaking.

In terms of mathematics , a function is said to be continuous function if there are no gaps when you plot the curve on coordinate axis.

In option 1, points scored is an incomplete statement.

Option 2, pages in a book is an example of constant function if you count pages between two pages. But it is a continuous function if page numbers are counted.

Option 3, children in a family is not a continuous function because there are gap in birth of two children.

Option 4, Temperature of an engine varies if engine is moving, otherwise remains constant.

Option (B), pages in a book is a type of data which is BEST described by a continuous model.

Option A is correct.

Step-by-step explanation:


First term, a = x + 3

second term = -2x² - 6x

Third term = 4x³ + 12x²

Common ratio, r = \frac{-2x^2-6x}{x+3}=\frac{-2x(x+3)}{x+3}=-2x

nth term of GP is gievn by, a_n=ar^{n-1}

So, Eight term = a_8=(x+3)(-2x)^{8-1}=(x+3)(-2x)^{7}=-128x^8-384x^7

Therefore, Option A is correct.
