 Question 181260: Hello, I finished school what seems like years ago. I have signed up to try and woth for the airforce as an officer. My maths is really rusty. There is a problem in one of their test papers which i dont understand. Its probably very simple. 3to the power of x = 81 I cant put the x above the 3 not sure how to enter that into a computer. Do you have any recommendations about reviving previous knowledge i have with maths? thanks Jesse Click here to see answer by ptaylor(2048)

 Question 181787: Hi tutors! I'm really stuck on this!! an orchandist has 10 hectares of land available for growing Fuji apples and Nashi pears. She estimates that each hectare of apples will cost \$5000 to establish, and each heactare of pears will cost \$20 000 to establish. She is not able to spend more than \$100 000 on establishing the orchard. It is also estimated that the profit per hectare from apples will be \$4000 and the profit per hectare from pears will be \$8000. What is the maximum profit the orchard can expect? How many hectares of Fuji apples and Nashi pears should she plant to achieve this? Show your working clearly. You should explain the reason behind the answer you give. This is a huge problem.
