 Question 143987This question is from textbook Elementary and intermediat algebra cenept and application : A lawyer bills her clients \$250 per hour of service. If a client's case requires 47 hours to complete, use proportion to calculate how much the client will owe the lawyer (excluding tax). 2. A new virus is released on the internet; the administrator of a department's Local Area Network ( LAN) is given five minutes by a manager to estimate the impact. The administrator samples 12 of the PCs connected to the LAN, and finds that 7 are infected; use proportion to estimate the number of infected PCs if there are a total of 117 PCs connected to the LAN. 3. An administrator of a popular web site is told that a new server can handle 11,000 "hits" (users accessing the site) per second. The web site currently experiences a peak demand of about 85,000 hits per second; but every month, the peak demand increases by 3500 hits per second. Use a proportion equation to determine how many new servers the administrator should buy to address expected traffic for the next 18 months.
