 Probability-and-statistics/309447: a card is drawn from a deck of cards numbered one through twenty. The card is NOT replaced and another card is drawn. Find the probability that a prime number is drawn and then a composite number.1 solutions Answer 221328 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-05-28 16:14:41 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Prime numbers from 1 to 20 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19 The number 1 is neither prime nor composite (if your teacher doesn't feel that way then modify as necessary). That makes 8 numbers prime. 11 numbers composite. 1 special number (the number 1). 20 total. P(prime)=8/20=2/5 Without replacement the total number of cards drops to 19. P(composite)=11/19 P(prime, composite)=(2/5)(11/19)=22/95
 Surface-area/309449: The volume of a cylindrical can is 500 cubed cm. the material used to make the top and bottom costs .o12 cent/squared cm, the material used for the sides costs .01 cent/ squared cm, and the seam joining the top and bottom to the sides costs .015 cent/cm. what size can would cost the least to produce? 1 solutions Answer 221325 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-05-28 16:07:15 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The can is a cylinder of radius R and length L. The total cost is the cost of the top and bottom plus the cost of the sidewall. The costs are based on total area. The top and bottom are both circles of radius R. The contribution to the total cost is, and width . Its contribution to the total cost is, The final contributor to cost is the seam which is length L. Its contribution is The total cost equation is then Using the volume equation you can get L as a function of R. Now substitute into the cost equation, Now you have total cost as the function of one variable. To find the minimum cost, take the derivative and set it equal to zero. I solved this numerically in EXCEL and got From that, then use the volume equation to find R.

Jerome burns 4 cal/min walking and 10 cal/min running. He walks between 10 and 20 min each day and runs between 30 and 45 min each days. He never spends more than an hour running and walking together. How much time should he spend on each activity to maximize the number of calories he burns?1 solutions Answer 221278 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-05-28 11:10:14 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1)P(X,Y)=2X+3Y P(0,0)=0+0=0 P(0,7)=0+3(7)=21 P(3,0)=2(3)+0=6 P(3,7)=2(3)+3(7)=27 The max occurs at (3,7). . . . 2)C(X,Y)=X+4Y C(0,0)=0+0=0 C(0,20)=0+4(20)=80 C(15,0)=15+0=15 C(10,10)=10+4(10)=50 The min occurs at (0,0). . . . Let C(X,Y) be the calories burned walking X minutes and running Y minutes. C(X,Y)=4X+10Y Constraints: 10<=X<=20, 30<=Y<=45. 1)C(X,Y)=4X+10Y C(10,30)=4(10)+10(30)= 340 C(10,45)=4(10)+10(45)=490 C(20,30)=4(10)+10(30)=380 C(20,45)=4(10)+10(45)=530 The max occurs at (10,45). 10 minutes walking, 45 minutes running.
