Problem 56: Maximum profit. A chain store manager has been told by the main office that daily profit, P, is related to the number of clerks working that day, x, according to the function P = ?25x^2 + 300x. What number of clerks will maximize the profit, and what is the maximum possible profit?

PROBLEM 3: Solving Quadratic Equations: 1 PAGE

• For the factoring problem, be sure you show all steps to the factoring and solving. Show a check of your solutions back into the original equation.
• For the Quadratic Formula problem, be sure that you use readable notation while you are working the computational steps. Refer to Inserting Math Symbols for guidance with formatting.
• Present your final solutions as decimal approximations carried out to the third decimal place. Due to the nature of these solutions, no check is required.
• Incorporate the following four math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing your math work.):
o Factoring
o Completing the square
o Discriminant

PROBLEM 4: 2 PAGES: Real World Radical Formulas

Read the following instructions in order to complete this assignment:
Solve parts a and b of problem 103 on page 605 and problem 104 on page 606 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra.

Write a two to three page paper that is formatted in APA style and according to the Math Writing Guide. Format your math work as shown in the example and be concise in your reasoning. In the body of your essay, please make sure to include:

An explanation of what the parts of the formula mean before using it to get your answers. Study the Instructor Guidance examples to learn how to solve the formula for another variable.

Your solution to the above problems, making sure to include all mathematical work.

A discussion of how and why these concepts are important in the “real world.” Describe another situation that could be evaluated using these concepts.

Find the rational exponent problems assigned to you in the table below.
If the last letter of your first name is M or Z
On pages 576 – 577, do the following problem 38 and 72
• Simplify each expression using the rules of exponents and examine the steps you are taking.
• Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing the thought behind your math work.):
o Principal root
o Product rule
o Quotient rule
o Reciprocal
o nth root
Refer to Inserting Math Symbols for guidance with formatting. Be aware that with regards to the square root symbol, you will notice that it only shows the front part of a radical and not the top bar. Thus, it is impossible to tell how much of an expression is included in the radical itself unless you use parenthesis. For example, if we have ?12 + 9 it is not enough for us to know if the 9 is under the radical with the 12 or not. Thus we must specify whether we mean it to say ?(12) + 9 or ?(12 + 9). As there is a big difference between the two, this distinction is important in your notation.
Another solution is to type the letters “sqrt” in place of the radical and use parenthesis to indicate how much is included in the radical as described in the second method above. The example above would appear as either “sqrt(12) + 9” or “sqrt(12 + 9)” depending on what we needed it to say.

PROBLEM 6: Two-Variable Inequalities: 2 PAGES

Read the following instructions in order to complete this assignment:
1. Solve problem 68 on page 539 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, and make sure to study the given graph. For the purposes of the assignment, it would be helpful to copy the graph onto your own scratch paper.
2. Write a two to three page paper that is formatted in APA style and according to the Math Writing Guide. Format your math work as shown in the example and be concise in your reasoning. In the body of your essay, please make sure to include:
o An application of the given situation to the following two scenarios:
? The Burbank Buy More store is going to make an order which will include at most 60 refrigerators. What is the maximum number of TVs which could also be delivered on the same 18-wheeler? Describe the restrictions this would add to the existing graph.
? The next day, the Burbank Buy More decides they will have a television sale so they change their order to include at least 200 TVs. What is the maximum number of refrigerators which could also be delivered in the same truck? Describe the restrictions this would add to the original graph.
3. An incorporation of the following math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing your math work.):
