 Question 66175: I'm not sure if this is Linear Algebra, but i have a good feeling. So: Suppose Y varies directly with the square of W and the cube of X. When W=4 and X=2, Y=72. Find Y when W=1 and X=5. I'm having problems setting the problem up and I don't know what it means when it says it varies directly with the (square, cube, etc..) of X (or whatever).

 Question 66699: What is wrong with this arguement? Suppose x and y represent two real numbers, where x > y 2 > 1 2(y-x)> 1(y-x) 2y-2x>y-x y-2x>-x y>x The final inequality, y>x, is impossible because we were initally given x>y. Extra info in problem possibly the "arguement"...This is a true statement . Multiply both sides by y-x. Use the distribtive property . Subtract from both sides. Add 2x to both sides.

 Question 67901: My math problem is broken up into check points in my book. Check point 1) A company manufactures bookselves and desks for computers. Let x represent the numbers of bookselves manufactured daily and y the number of desks manufactured daily. The company's profits are \$25 per a bookshelf and \$55 per desk. Write the objective function that describes the company's total profit, z, from x bookselves and y desks. Check point 2) To maintain high quality, the company in check point 1 should not manufacture more than a combined total of 80 bookselves and desks per day. Write an inequality that describes this constraint. Check point 3) To meet consumer demand, the company in check point 1 must manufacture between 30 and 80 bookselves per day, inclusive. Furthermore, the company must manufacture between 10 and no more than 30 desks per day. Write an inequality that describes each of these sentences. Then summarize what you have described about this company by write the objective function for it's profits, and the three constraints. Check point 4) For the company in check points 1-3, how many bookselves and how many desks should be manufactured per day to obtain a maximum profit? What is the maximum daily profit?

 Question 67939: Most three-way light bulbs have only two filaments. The first filament may be 50 watts, for example. The second filament may be 100 watts. The three levels of brightness are obtained by using the first filament(50 watts), the second filament (100 watts), or both filaments together(150 watts). Unfortunately, your eye won't see these three steps as changes that lead to equal ratios of brightness. Switching from the first to second level yielddsd a brightness ratio of 100:50, or 2:1. However, going from the second to third level yields a ratio of 150:100, or 3:2. The two ratios are not equal. Suppose you are asked to design a tree-way lightbulb that has a 50-watt element as its first filament , and yields equal ratios for 2nd level/1stlevel and 3rd level/2nd level. let x be the wattage of the second filament. then the brightness of the third level will be x+50, and you want the following relationship: 2ne level / 1st level = 3rd level/2nd level or x /50 = x+50/x a. Determine twhat wattage (x) should be used for the 2nd filament to meet the desired conditions. b. Check the results of part A. What is the ratio of 2nd to 1st filament wattage? What is the ratio of 3rd to 2nd? Do they match? c. Suppose the 1st filament is only 40 watts. what would that wattage of the 2nd filament need to be? Click here to see answer by stanbon(57984)
