see attatchment and help with excersice 4 part two please

OpenStudy (anonymous):

=median(choose all the numbers)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

70, 65+75 / 2 = 70

OpenStudy (anonymous):

srry it was exersice 4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

it says "Using the Essay from the first assignment, calculate the following:"

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes but in the purple box it says they want a formula for the population

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i need help with that because i dont know what to do

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

Create a formula that will tell you how many people are in the US if 1/4th of the people equals 57.7 million

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

this the one you need help with ?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no the second par i have the first formula

OpenStudy (anonymous):

*part

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Create a formula that will calculate the total number of people in the US next year HINT: The increase in the total population is listed as a percentage under the "Workplace Statistics" heading

OpenStudy (anonymous):

and in the "working statistics" it says "There are approximately a .9% population growth within the United States each year (“Population growth,” 2011

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

ok... you didnt put "Workplace Statistics" in the xls...

OpenStudy (anonymous):

well you got it now help and ill love you forever in a non stalker kid of way

OpenStudy (anonymous):

im clueless on how to do the formula

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

lol ok sure.. is that 0.9 % population growth ? this doesnt look correct... it must be 9% ?

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

check it once..

OpenStudy (anonymous):

heres the excerpt

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Workplace Statistics One in four adults suffers from mental health disorders every year (“Statistics,” 2010). If we consider the number of people who made up the American population in 2004, this constitutes approximately 57.7 million people. There are approximately a .9% population growth within the United States each year (“Population growth,” 2011), and fewer people are choosing to seek mental health support than ever before (“Survey says,” 2010). The survey referenced above states that people would rather, “eat (28%), smoke (14%), shop (15%) or watch TV (36%) than see a therapist as a stress management technique.”

OpenStudy (anonymous):

if its talking about the growth i figured its got to be the .9%

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

u r correct.. its 0.9 %

OpenStudy (anonymous):

do i get i cookie

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so wat next thats where im stumped superman

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

lol we need to use answer from First part

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

Create a formula that will tell you how many people are in the US if 1/4th of the people equals 57.7 million

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

for this, you got the formula as this : \[\huge{\frac{x}{4} = 57.7\ million}\]

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yep een there done that

OpenStudy (anonymous):

*been

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

yep.. we need to use that forumula for Second part as well

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

there, x is the population of US current year. current year population, x = 57.7 * 4 = 229.6 million

OpenStudy (anonymous):

k

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

lets put the data we have so far : \(\textbf{ 1) currrent year population : 229.6 million} \\\textbf{ 2) population is growing at a rate of : 0.9 % }\) now, can we work out Second part ? Create a formula that will calculate the total number of people in the US next year

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

total number of people in the next year = \[229.6\ million + 0.9\%\ growth\]

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

= \[229.6\ million + \frac{0.9}{100}*229.6\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

hey where the hell the fraction pop out of!!! the bushes?????

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you lost me at fractions i can feel my brain running for the hills

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

haha.. when ever we are dealing with a % we need to divide it by 100 to convert it to decimals.

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

il show a example

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

what is 5 % of 100 ?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

nono it ok i remember that now

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

ok.. cool... :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

just freaked when i show a fraction

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

yh.. lol... happens.. good luck with rest of the problem... :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

broke out in a cold sweat

OpenStudy (anonymous):

but thats it right its just fiiguring out the equation from there or is it more?

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

question is asking about formula. so it should be like this : if "x" is the current population of US. next year population \[\huge = x + \frac{0.9}{100}*x\]

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

we are hiding the number 229.6 million, and calling it as \(x\)

OpenStudy (ganeshie8):

we can use this formula for knowing growth in surfers, skydivers... etc in later part of the problem.. hope its clear...

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yep and thanks for holding my hand so to speak threw this problem iv'e been on this site for an hr asking for help with this question
