 Question 58455: Here is a function that I have been dealing with at work: Y(x) = –3.3x2 + 0.5x + 300. I need to use this function to tell researchers what value of x produces the maximum output signal for an MRI machine, Y. Also, since everyone’s MRI machine is not exactly the same as mine, I want to give them a range of x values that will produce nearly the maximum output Y. So, here are the questions: 1. What is the x value when Y is at its maximum value? 2. What is the maximum value of Y? 3. Since negative Y values are impossible for operating the MRI machine, what is the range of x values for Y to be greater than or equal to zero? 4. What is the range of x values where Y is at 90% of its maximum value? 5. Plot Graph showing all of the above information. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57337)

 Question 59000: Talia plans to make tallitot(prayer shawls) and matching kipot(prayer hats) from a bolt of material. The fabric she plans to use is 250 yards long. She will need 2 yards of material for each tallitot(prayer shawl) and 1/6 of a yard for each kipah(prayer hat). She also plans to put tzitzit(fringes) on the tallit and will need 1 yard of cord for each tallit. The kipot will not have any fringes. She has 100 yards of cord to use for the tzitzit. 1. Please help me find the two equations to use to solve for how many kipot and tallitot she can make from the supplies on hand.t=tallipot and k=kipot. I know that you have to have yards+yards=yards but i am confused to were the 100yards of fringe cord comes into play. Thank you very much i needed it! Click here to see answer by stanbon(57337)

 Question 59001: Karif plans to make red and green kerchiefs in two sizes, medium and large. He has 60 yards of each color of material. He will need 1/4 of a yard of the appropriate colored fabric for each medium kerchief and 1/2 of a yard for each large kerchief. He also palns to trim each kerchief with the alternate color of ribbon. He has 240 yards of each color of ribbon. He will need 1 yard of ribbon for each medium kerchief and 2 yards for each large kerchief. Let m=number of medium kerchiefs and L=number of large kerchiefs. I need help finding the starting two equations to solve for the number of each color of kerchiefs Karif can make from the supplies given. Thank You so much!!

 Question 59579: Find the dimensions of a box whose area is 196 cu. in., whose surface area is 280 sq. in., and whose width is twice its height. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57337)

 Question 59623: I submitted this problem earlier today but made a mistake. The correct problem is: Find the dimensions of a box whose volume is 196 cu. in., whose surface area is 280 sq. in., and whose LENGTH is twice its width. I got 2 equations: 196=2W^2H (W is width and H is height) 280=4W^2+6WH I solved the first equation for H and substituted it in the 2nd equation, ending up with: 4W^3-280W+588=0 I can't figure out where to go from here.
