 Question 288969: A rain gutter is made from sheets of aluminum that are 30 inches wide. The edges are truned up to fom right angles. Determine the depth of the gutter that will allow a cross-sectional area of 40 square inches. Show that there are two different solutions to the problem. tound to the nearest tenth of an inch. The width of the gutter, after turning up the edges, is given as 30-2x. Its depth is given as x The area is x(30-2x) Set this expression equal to the given area, 40 The final answer is x approximately = 1.5, 13.5 inches. How did they get the final answer?

 Question 289526: Hello I created this quadratic equation and want to make sure it is correct please if you could tell me if it is right or not. if it is not can you redo the problem with the correct parts that I might have done wrong. Suppose the demand and price for a multiday vitamin are related by p= .0020q + 1, where p is the price (in dollars) of a 30 day supply. If the demand is related to the price by p = -.0030q + 24.99. What are the equilibrium quantity and price? Answer: .0020q + 1 = -.0030q + 24.99 10q = 24.98 q = 2.498 p= .0020 (2.498) + 1 = 5.996 or \$6.00 equilibrium quantity is 2.498 vitamins at an equilibrium price of \$6.00 Thank you John Click here to see answer by MRSLADY16(1)
