Part A There is a function f, where f(n) = 1200n + 3500 represents the number of people in a town who owned a smartphone n years after 2007. How many people owned a smartphone in this town in the year 2010 ? Enter your answer in the box ____________ Part B There is a function p, where p(x) represents the percent of adults in the United States who owned a smartphone x years after 2011. What does p(5) = 68 represent? Select from the drop-down menus to correctly complete the sentence.

@mikewwe13 n represents years after 2007 so 1 year after 2007, it's 2008 2 years after 2006, it's 2009 3 years after 2006, it's 2010 therefore, when it's 2010, n = 3

Vocaloid:

so let n = 3 and calculate f(n) = 1200n + 3500 = ?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

100(12n + 35)

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

n = 3 means you can replace "n" with 3 when 3 shows up write this f(n) = 1200*n + 3500 replace "n" with 3 then solve.

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

f(3) = 1200n + 3500 = f = 400n + 3500/3

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

just ignore the f(n) part for now

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

1200*n + 3500 = ?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

what about the x with n ?

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

there is no x here

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

write this down 1200*n + 3500 = ? replace "n" with 3 then figure out what the expression is equal to

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

* means multiply

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

p(5) = 68 means that x = 5 and p(5) = 68, which means that the percentage of people who owned a smartphone 5 years after 2011 is 68%

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

what year is it, if it is 5 years after 2011?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

2006

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

add, don't subtract

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

2011 + 5 = ?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

2016

mikewwe13:

i meant that at first

good so your first blank is 2016 and your second blank is 68%

Each day, Ben wants to consume at least 350 grams of protein and carbohydrates combined. He also wants the amount of carbohydrates he consumes to be no more than 3 times the amount of protein. Part B Which combinations allows Ben to consume at least 350 grams of protein and carbohydrates combined while limiting the carbohydrates to no more than 3 times the amount of protein ? Select all that apply. A. 70 grams of protein and 270 grams of carbohydrates B. 75 grams of protein and 275 grams of carbohydrates C. 80 grams of protein and 260 grams of carbohydrates D. 90 grams of protein and 270 grams of carbohydrates E. 100 grams of protein and 290 grams of carbohydrates

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

for each letter choice, add the grams of protein and carbohydrates for example, for A, add 70 and 270 repeat this process for each letter and let me know what you get use a template like this: A = 70 + 270 = 340

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

340

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

good, keep going for B, C, D, E, etc.

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

B. 350 C. 340 D. 360 E. 390

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

good, so if we want the sum of the grams to be ~at least~ 350, we can eliminate one letter. Which letter has a sum less than 350?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

60

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

which letter, please?

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

A. 340 B. 350 C. 340 D. 360 E. 390 which two letters have a number less than 350?

C.

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

there's one more, which one?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

B.

350 is not less than 350, so not B

which letters have a number LESS than 350?

now, we want the grams of carbohydrates to be less than 3 times the grams of protein for B, D, and E, calculate: 3 * grams of protein

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

B. 825 D. 810 E. 870

3 * grams of ~protein~ not carbohydrates please

oh wait i did it wrong

B. 225 D. 240 E. 300

8 months ago

check your numbers again

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

B has 75 g protein D has 90 g protein E has 100 g protein

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

multiply these by 3

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

3 x 75 right ?

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

just check D again, C and E were right

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

3 X 100 ?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

90

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

good, and 90*3 = ?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

270

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

good so B = 225g D = 270g E = 300g so we want these numbers to be less than the carbohydrate numbers

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

*sorry, greater than

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

now, for B, there are 275g carbs D = 270g carbs E = 290 g carbs let's compare them side by side

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

B: 225g protein vs 275g carbs is protein or carbs bigger?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

carbs is bigger

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

good, so B cannot be one of the choices

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

let's check D 270g protein vs 270g carbs they're equal, so D works as an answer lets check E

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

300g protein vs 270 carbs is protein or carbs bigger?

8 months ago
mikewwe13:

protein

8 months ago
Vocaloid:

good so D and E are the answers

8 months ago

can we open a new question please
