Two researchers are studying the decline of orangutan populations. In one study, a population of 784 orangutans is expected to decrease at a rate of 25 orangutans per year. In a second study, the population of a group of 817 orangutans is expected to decrease at a rate of 36 per year. After how many years will the two populations be the same? The two populations will be the same after ______ years

Population 1 :784 - 25 t  ( where t stays for the years )Population 2 :817 - 36 t784 - 25 t = 817 - 36 t- 25 t + 36 t = 817 - 78411 t = 33t = 33 : 11t = 3 yearsWe can prove it:784 - 25 * 3 = 784 - 75 = 709817 - 36 * 3 = 817 - 108 = 709709 = 709Answer:The two populations will be the same after 3 years.

A painting is purchased for $500. If the value of the painting doubles every 5 years, then its value is given by the function V(t) = 500 ⋅ 2t/5, where t is the number of years since it was purchased and V(t) is its value (in dollars) at that time. What is the value of the painting ten years after its purchase

V(t) = 500 * (2t)/5
after 10 years....t = 10

A botanist measures a plant, in feet, at the beginning of each month and notices that the measurements form a geometric sequence, as shown below. 2, 2.2, 2.42, 2.662, ... If the first measurement was taken on September 1, about how tall was the plant three months before, on June 1, assuming the same growth pattern? A) 0.9 ft B) 1.5 ft C) 1.7 ft D) 2.0 ft

Answer: Choice B) 1.5 ft

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Work Shown:

r = common ratio
r = (second term)/(first term)
r = 2.2/2
r = 1.1
Each term is multiplied by 1.1 to get the next term
Eg: 
term 2 = 1.1*(term 1)
term 2 = 1.1*2
term 2 = 2.2

Let x be the value three slots before the value 2
So we have x, x*r, x*r^2, x*r^3 where
x = value in June
x*r = value in July
x*r^2 = value in August
x*r^3 = value in September

We just found that r = 1.1. We also know that the value in September is 2. So this means

x*r^3 = 2
x*(1.1^3) = 2
x*1.331 = 2
x*1.331/1.331 = 2/1.331
x = 1.5026 approximately

This rounds to 1.5

QUESTION POSTED AT 02/06/2020 - 01:35 AM

Which value represents the horizontal translation from the graph of the parent function f(x) = x^2 to the graph of the function g(x) = (x-4)^2+2?

Translation by h (right) and k (up)
g(x)=f(x-h)+k
=f(x-4)^2+2
so h=4, k=2
horizontal translation (to the right) is h=+4, but is shown as -4 for the translation value.

QUESTION POSTED AT 02/06/2020 - 01:35 AM

What transformation has changed the parent function f(x) = log5x to its new appearance shown in the graph below logarithmic graph passing through point 5, negative 2.

f(x)=log(5x)

We want the curve to pass through (5,-2)

We can move the curve along the plot adding something in the formula. Let’s call that z.

You can put z in different parts of the formula and still find a z value that makes it pass through the point (5,-2). I will choose to put it inside the log:

f(x)=log(5x+z)

f(5)=-2

log(5*5+z)=-2

log(25+z)=-2

10^-2 = 25+z

10^-2 – 25 = z

z=1/100-25 = 1/100-2500/100=-2499/100 = -24.99

Let’s verify:

f(5)= log(5*5-24.99)=-2

So the formula: f(x)=log(5x-24.99) passes through the point (5,-2)

QUESTION POSTED AT 02/06/2020 - 01:33 AM

Use a graphing calculator to solve the equation -3 cost= 1 in the interval from . Round to the nearest hundredth.

In place of t, or theta, I'm going to utilize x instead. So the equation is -3*cos(x) = 1. Get everything to one side and we have -3*cos(x)-1 = 0

Let f(x) = -3*cos(x)-1. The goal is to find the root of f(x) in the interval [0, 2pi]

I'm using the program GeoGebra to get the task done of finding the roots. In this case, there are 2 roots and they are marked by the points A and B in the attachment shown

A = (1.91, 0)
B = (4.37, 0)

So the two solutions for theta are
theta = 1.91 radians
theta = 4.37 radians

QUESTION POSTED AT 02/06/2020 - 01:33 AM

A sequence is defined by the recursive function f(n + 1) = f(n). If f(3) = 9 , what is f(1) ?

Assuming that f(n+1) = f(n) is the full recursive definition, and that there are no typos, then this means that the nth term is equal to the (n+1)th term for any n where n is a positive whole number.

So
f(1) = f(2)
f(2) = f(3)
f(3) = 9

By the transitive property, f(1) = f(3) = 9. Therefore the answer is 9.

QUESTION POSTED AT 02/06/2020 - 01:33 AM

C2/d at c = 6, d =3 Really confused on this one Can you evaluate the algebraic expressions for the given values of each variable? please

If the C2 is referring to C^2 (c squared), then 

C^2 = 6^2 = 6*6 = 36
Note how I replaced the "C" with 6, because C = 6
Squaring a number is the same as multiplying it by itself. 

Once you know the value of C^2, you divide it over the value for d, which is 3

So,
(C^2)/d = (36)/3 = 12

The final answer is 12

QUESTION POSTED AT 02/06/2020 - 01:31 AM

Write the slope-intercept inequality for the graph below. Also please explain this one if you can!

Answer:  y <= -3x + 3

-----------------------------------------

Explanation: The slope of the boundary line is -3 because we go down 3 over 1 each time we go from point to point. We can use the slope formula to get

m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)
m = (-3-3)/(2-0)
m = -6/2
m = -3

The y intercept is 3 because this is the location on the y axis where the graph crosses, so b = 3

Therefore the boundary line equation is y = -3x+3. Note how it's in the form y = mx+b where m = -3 and b = 3

The boundary line is solid. The shading is below the boundary line. So we change the equal sign to a "less than or equal to" sign to get the final answer of y <= -3x+3
