 Question 194070: Miranda throws a set of keys to her brother who is standing on a third-story balcony with his hands 38 feet above the ground. If Miranda throws the key with an initial velocity of 40 feet per second, the equation h = -16t+40t+5 gives the heigh h of the keys after t seconds. 1. How long does it take the keys to reach their highest point? 2. How high do the keys reach? 3. Will her brother be able to catch the keys? Explain. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57246)

 Question 194097: a retailer spent \$48.00 to purchase a number of special mugs. 2 broken in store, but by selling each of remaining mugs for \$3.00 above original cost per mug, made \$22.00 profit. a. if the price for n mugs is \$48, how can i express the cost per mug? b. using answer in step a, how do i express selling price per mug? c. since two broken how do i express # of mugs available for sale? d. using b and c construct expression for amount of 4 made on sale of remaining e. how do i express relationship between money made, the cost and the profit what i come up so far.......still confused as exactly how to express each listed above...thanks Let n = the number of mugs purchased by the retailer Let n-2 = the number of mugs available for sale (the retailer broke two) Let (48/n) - the cost of each mug purchased by the retailer (\$48 spent divided by the number of mugs) If she sold each mug for a 3 profit (3+(48/n)) is the sale price of each mug (n-2)(3+(48/n)) = the total sales (the number of mugs sold*the price) the total sales = cost + \$22 profit (n-2)(3+(48/n))=48+\$22 If (n-2)(48/n+3) - 48 = 22 then expanding brackets:- 48 - 96/n + 3n - 6 - 48 = 22 and rearranging 3n - 96/n - 28 = 0 and multiplying through by n gives 3n^2 - 28n - 96 = 0 which is the standard form of a Q.E. Factorising to (3n + 8)(n - 12) = 0 therefore:- n = - 8/3 or 12 Click here to see answer by stanbon(57246)
