 Question 26421: A student takes out 2 loans totalling \$30000 to pay for college. One loan is at 4% interest, while the other is at 6%. Interest for both loans is compounded annually. Find the amount of the loan at 4% interest if the first year interest on the total loan is \$1688. This is what I have so far: The sum of the loan is \$30000 x + y = 30000 The interst is \$1688 4% of x + 6% of y = 1688 (4/100)x + (6/100)y = 1688 y = 30000 - x Click here to see answer by stanbon(57250)

 Question 26755: Please help. I have been trying to make sense if this for days now. Question : A 50ft long bungee will stretch a certain amount, depending on how much the person doing the jump weight. The following table tells how much a bungee cord will stretch for certain weights. The stretch is in addition to the original 50ft length of the bungee cord. Weight(lbs) ............................Stretch (ft) 100..........................................80.9 110..........................................86.7 120......................................... 92.4 130..........................................98.1 140..........................................103.7 a) Draw a graph with weight as the independent variable and the stretch as the dependent variable. b) Write an equation that will predict the stretch distance , d, for a given weight, w c) If the concrete is 200 ft below the point where the bungee cord is attached , what is the heaviest "safe"weight for a 6ft tall jumper. Assume bungee cord is attached to jumper's ankles. Click here to see answer by bmauger(101)
