 Question 196286: bottled water: from 1990 to 1999, the per person consumption B of bottled water (in gallons) and the population P of the united states (in thousands) can be modeled by B = 0.0977t2 + 0.186t + 7.86 and P = 3226t+ 250,359 where t is the number of years since 1990. write a model for the total consumption C of bottled water (in thousands of gallons). what is the total consumption of bottled water in 1998?Answer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!bottled water: from 1990 to 1999, the per person consumption B of bottled water (in gallons) and the population P of the united states (in thousands) can be modeled by B = 0.0977t^2 + 0.186t + 7.86 and P = 3226t+ 250,359 where t is the number of years since 1990. write a model for the total consumption C of bottled water (in thousands of gallons). what is the total consumption of bottled water in 1998? ----------------- Total consumption = B*P --- I wouldn't try to simplify that product as it is too messy. ---- Total(t) = (0.0977t^2 + 0.186t + 7.86)*(3226t+ 250,359) ---- In 1998 t = 8. So Find Total(8) and use your calculator to get: T(8) = 15.6008*276167 = 4308426.134 ========================================= Cheers, Stan H. )
