how was calc II at dawn?

myininaya (myininaya):

lol it was okay

OpenStudy (phi):

Does this make sense: let y= # in dept Y. assume # in dept X is exactly 2y then total salary = 2y*25 + y*35 and avg salary would be 85y/3y = 28.33 so moving people from dept Y to dept X would lower this to 28. In the limit, if all people moved from Y to X, the avg would be 25, so 26 is also possible

Hi Apple Pi

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i was thinking that you have average is $\frac{25x+35y}{x+y}$ with the obvious meaning of x and y. also you know $x>2y$ so smallest denominator could be is $3y$ if x =2 y, and biggest numerator could be is also if x = 2y at $95y$ so biggest whole fraction can be is $\frac{95y}{3y}=31\tfrac{2}{3}$ so anything less

OpenStudy (anonymous):

smallest is if they all work in X right? in that case you get $25$

OpenStudy (anonymous):

but i have been making mistakes all day. so could be wrong

myininaya (myininaya):

phi good job thats what i did A and B are the answers since we have that or situation

OpenStudy (phi):

@sat if you sub in 2y for x, you get 50y+35y. It looks like you did it the other way round. BTW, how do you get your post to be formatted??
