 Circles/597896: In the circle whose equation is x^2 + y^2 = 49, a chord is perpendicular to a diameter at the point (0,4). a. What is the length of the chord? b What are the coordinates of the chords end points?1 solutions Answer 378382 by solver91311(17077)   on 2012-04-11 20:52:29 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The circle is centered at the origin, so a diameter through the point (0,4) must be a vertical line, moreover it must lie in the -axis. The perpendicular chord must then lie in a horizontal line with the equation . Construct the chord and then construct the radii that intersect the circle at the two points of intersection of the chord and the circle. You will have created two right triangles with vertices at the origin, the point (0,4) and the points of intersection of the chord and the circle. The radius of the circle is 7, hence the measure of the hypotenuse of each of your two right triangles is also 7. Also, the measure of the short side of the triangles is 4 since the short side is on the -axis from the origin to the point (0,4). Use Pythagoras to calculate the measure of each half of the desired chord. The measure of the cord is 2 times this value. The -coordinates of the two endpoints of the chord are the positive and negative of this value and the -coordinate of the endpoints is, perforce, 4.

 Surface-area/597839: You want to form a rectangular pen of area, a=70 ft^2. One side of the pen is to be formed by an existing building and the other three sides by a fence. If w is the width of the sides of the rectangle perpendicular to the building, then the length of the side parallel to the building is L=70/w. The total amount of fence required is the function F=2w + 70/w, in feet. Determine the dimensions of the rectangle that requires a minimum amount of fence. Round to decimal places. width = feet length = feet I have been having difficulty with area problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I hope you are taking Calculus, because that is the only way I know how to solve this one. Minimize Take the first derivative: Set the first derivative equal to zero and solve for the value of the independent variable at a local extremum. Discard the negative root; measurements of distance less than zero are absurd in this context. Take the second derivative: Which is positive for all positive values of the independent variable. Therefore the local extreme is a minimum. Hence the minimum amount of fence is required when the width measures . You should be able to determine the length yourself using . Using the calculator and rounding is also up to you. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
 Rectangles/597613: 1.find the length and width of a rectangle that has perimeter 40 meters and a maximum area. 1 solutions Answer 378282 by solver91311(17077)   on 2012-04-11 14:52:28 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The perimeter of a rectangle is given by: Which can be rearranged to: The area, given by length times width, can then be represented as a function of the width for a given perimeter thus: This function is a quadratic that can be put into standard form thus: The graph of such a quadratic is a parabola that is concave down (the lead coefficient is less than zero), meaning that the vertex represents a maximum. The coordinate of the vertex of this parabola is given by: Therefore the width that gives the greatest area rectangle for any given perimeter is the perimeter divided by 4. The two widths are therefore half of the perimeter, hence the two lengths must also be half of the perimeter, and therefore the shape is a square. Divide your given perimeter by 4 and then square the result. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it

 Money_Word_Problems/597332: If you own a pizza business and your cost is 5 dollars for a 6 inches pizza, what would you charge for an 18 inch pizza?1 solutions Answer 378126 by solver91311(17077)   on 2012-04-10 19:15:22 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Impossible to answer. You haven't established a proportional relationship between the cost of a pizza and its diameter. And you haven't provided any profit margin information. You could establish that a pizza with three times the diameter (and therefore 3 times the radius) has an area that is 9 times the smaller pizza so as to make a claim that the 18 inch pizza costs 9 times the cost of the 6 inch. The problem with that idea is that some of the $5 cost of making the 6 inch pie is fixed overhead cost, that is to say cost that remains the same whether you make a 6 inch pizza or one that is 5 feet across and fills the entire oven, and the rest of the$5.00 is the cost of ingredients which cost is related to the actual size of the pie. But even if you had provided information to allow allocation of the fixed and variable costs, your question asks for the PRICE of the larger pizza. You can't get from cost to price without some idea of the margin. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it

If the guy who starts at 10am is going 50 mph, he will have gone 50 miles when the other guy starts. Which is to say that when the second guy starts they will be 170 minus 50 = 120 miles apart. Distance equals rate times time, so time equals distance divided by rate. The distance the 50mph guy will cover of the remaining 120 miles can be represented by , so The other guy must be traveling what remains of the 120 after you subtract the miles the first guy will cover, so his trip is described by: Since we are concerned with the time they meet, the time each of them is on the road (starting at the 11:00 am time) is equal, hence: Solve for John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
