 logarithm/108166: can anyone help me?:determine the horizontal asymptote of the graph of B(t)=1200/1+34e^-0.125t. i have no idea how to solve this. 1 solutions Answer 78824 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2007-11-05 14:51:27 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You can do it two ways. Graphically or by analysis. Let's do analysis. As t gets large, since there is a -.125 coefficient to multiply t in the exponential, the exponential function drops quickly to zero. Then function then looks like for large positive t. Example: At t=100, B(t)=1199.848 I'm not sure of the context of this function, that is if t is always positive, like time. If not, we can look at what happens when t becomes large in the negative direction. In that case (-.125t) becomes very large, and the exponential function becomes very large. for large negative t. Example: At t=-100, B(t)=.000132 There is a horizontal asymptote at y=1200. And if it makes sense in your problem, there is also one at y=0. Graphically it's easier to find the asymptotes,

 Linear-equations/108162: HI please help me with this.THankyou The equation 9C-5F+160=0 describes the relationship between tempreature,C, in degrees Celsiu, and the tempreature , F, in degrees fahrenheit. a) express the equation in the form C=mF+b b) Graph this relation c) Identify the slope and the C intercept and explain what they mean1 solutions Answer 78817 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2007-11-05 14:03:35 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Add (5F-160) to both sides. Simplify. Divide both sides by 9. a) Simplify. b) c.) The slope is the number is the coefficient of F in equation a or 5/9. It relates the rate of change in each temperature system. For a change of 9 degrees Fahrenheit, you get a 5 degrees change in Celsius. The C intercept is where the graph crosses the y axis. The value of C when F=0. C(0) is the equivalent temperature in Celsius to 0 F. In this case,

 Age_Word_Problems/108129: I am trying to help my daughter but we cannot set up this problem can you please help us thank you. For six consecutive years a man's age was a multiple of his granddaugters age. How old was each during the sixth year?1 solutions Answer 78798 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2007-11-05 10:49:52 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let's call the Grandfather's age, X, and the Grandaughter's age Y. The first year X=mY where m is an integer (1,2,3,4,..) and for the next 5 years, X+1=n(Y+1) X+2=o(Y+2) X+3=p(Y+3) X+4=q(Y+4) X+5=r(Y+5) where n,o,p,q,and r are also integers. Using this method you have 6 equations, but you have 8 unknowns, so it doesn't help. Another method is to look at the list of prime numbers, that is numbers that are divisible only by themselves and 1. You need to find 6 consecutive non-prime or composite numbers. The list of primes under 100 is 2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 29 31 37 41 43 47 53 59 61 67 71 73 79 83 89 97 The first time you have six consecutive divisible numbers starts at 90. 90=3x3x10 91=7x13 92=2x2x23 93=3x31 94=2x47 95=5x19 96=2x2x24 The issue is that 93,94,95 have only prime factors and the factors are not consecutive, so they can't be the daughter's age. The next 6 consecutive composite numbers start at 114 to 126. The same issue exists as before 115,118,119,122,123,124 have large prime factors in them and cannot be the daughter's age. I don't believe there's a solution to this problem, as stated.

 Equations/107634: Determine whether the equation is an identity, a conditional equation, or an inconsistant equation. 1/(x+5) + 2/(x+3) = -2/(x^2 + 8x +15)1 solutions Answer 78398 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2007-11-02 11:11:51 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Since (x+5) is in the denominator on the right hand side of the equation, we made the assumption that x=-5 and x=-3 were not solutions to avoid division by zero. Since we derived that x=-5, there is no solution(inconsistent).

 Linear_Algebra/107512: I am trying to help my daughter with her homework, but since I have no idea what I am doing I hope that having the answer will help me out: Cricket Problem: Based on information in Deep River Jim's Wilderness Trailbook, the rate at which crickets chirp is a lenear function of temperature. At 55 degrees F they make 70 chirps per minute and at 69 degrees F they make 126 chirps per minute. a) Write the equation expressing chirping rate as a function of temperature. b) Predict the chirping rate at 90 degrees F. c) How warm is it if they are chirping 120 chirps per minute? d) Calculate the temperature-intercept. What does this tell you about this numbeer in the real-world? e) Calculate the chirping-intercept. What does the chirping-intercept tell you about the real-worl? f) Shetch and label the graph. Thank you for any help. Brian1 solutions Answer 78289 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2007-11-01 17:05:09 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Linear equation means you need two points to calculate the equation. You have two points. Let C=chirp rate and T=temperature. The equation of a line is given by, where m is the slope of the line and b is the intercept. The slope is given by Using the two data points, you gave, and the units are chirps per minute/degree F. You can solve for b by using m you just calculated and one data point. The equation of your line is then You can verify with your two points. 70 chirps at 55 degrees F. That checks out. 126 chirps at 69 degrees F. That checks out. Your equation matches the data. a.)C(T)=4T-150 where C is chirps per minute, T is degrees F. Chirping rate at 90F. C(90)=4(90)-150 C(90)=360-150 C(90)=210 b.)210 chirps per minute at 90 degrees F. C(T)=4T-150=120 4T-150=120 4T-150+150=120+150 4T=270 T=270/4 c.)T=67.5 degrees F for 120 chirps per minute. d.) The temperature intercept is where the chirping rate is equal to zero. 4T-120=0 4T-120+120=120 4T=120 T=30 degrees F. In the real world, that says chirping doesn't start until 30 degrees. The birds are probably conserving their energy because its so cold. e.) The chirping intercept is where the temperature is equal to zero. C(0)=4(0)-120=-120. This doesn't really have a real world interpretation since there is no such thing as a negative chirp. Chirps need to be positive, that is not defined below T=30 degrees F.

Add 3x to both sides. Divide both sides by 3. or Check your answer. Pick a number greater than 5. Let's pick 10. The inequality should hold true since 10>5. True statement. Good answer. a. (5, ∞)
 Rational-functions/107480: If a piece of real estate purchased for \$50,000 in 1998 appreciates at the rate of 5% per year, then its value t years after the purchase will be f (t) = 50,000(1.05t ) . According to this model, by how much will the value of this piece of property increase between the years 2007 and 2008? a. \$2500 b. \$3140 c. \$3880 d. \$31,4001 solutions Answer 78283 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2007-11-01 16:30:11 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First, a correction. If the property appreciates 5% every year, then after the first year,1999. F(1)=50000(1.05) After the second year, 2000. F(2)=F(1)*(1.05)=50000(1.05)(1.05)= The equation should be then 2007 would be the 9th year and 2008 would be the 10th year. and or and The difference between the 10th year and the 9th year would then be C.3880, close enough. If you used the original equation, the house value increases only \$2500, after the first year but then increases value by \$52,500 every year after. At the end of the 10th year, the house would be worth \$525,000. That would be a great profit.
