A sports memorabilia store makes \$6 profit on each football it sells and \$5.50 profit on each baseball it sells. In a typical month, it sells between 35 and 45 footballs and between 40 and 55 baseballs. The store has no more than 80 footballs and baseballs in stock during the month. What is the maximum profit the store can make from selling footballs and baseballs in a month?

We are given with \$6 profit per football sold and \$5.50 profit per baseball sold. There are 35-45 footballs and 40-55 baseballs sold but there are only 80 balls stock in the store. The maximum profit is incurred from selling more of football and less of baseball. The equal number could also be possible. Having 40 footballs and 40 baseballs can be a possibility. However, having 39 footballs and 41 baseballs has smaller profit than the equal number. Likewise, 41 footballs lead to 39 baseballs which are not within the range. The answer is 40 footballs and 40 baseballs with a total profit of \$460.

Sophia is saving money for a new bicycle. The bicycle will cost at least \$623. Sophia makes \$8.22 per hour. Which inequality could be used find the number of hours Sophia needs to work to make enough money to buy a new bicycle? \$8.22h > \$623 \$8.22h ≤ \$623 \$8.22h ≥ \$623 \$8.22h < \$623

C.\$ 623

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given that Sophia is saving money for a new bicycle.

The bicycle will  cost atleast \$623.

Sophia makes \$8.22 per hour.

We have to find the inequality that could be used to find the number of hours Sophia needs to work to make enough money to buy a new bicycle.

Let Sophia works h hours to make enough money to buy a new bicycle.

Sophia makes money per hour =\$8.22

Total money made by Sophia in h hours =

According to question

\$623

Hence, option C is true.

Will Upvote you! Evaluate the function rule for the given value. y = 8 ∙ 3^x for x = 4 A: 96 B: 1944 C: 647 D: 648

For x = 4, then it means 3 to the fourth power or 3 times 3 times 3 times 3 times 3.  3^4 = 81 and 8 times that is 648.

y(x) = 8 * 3^x where x = 4:

y(x) = 8 * 3^4 = 8 * 81
y(x) = 648

The Function Rule then being that for every value of x there is one and only one value of y. y is the dependent variable and x is the independent variable.

Clark Kent walks 3 miles west and then 4 miles north. How far is it for Superman to fly in a straight line back to his starting point? (It makes a right triangle.)

You can use the Pythagorean theorem to solve this problem. 3 miles west would be 3 units to the left on a graph, and 4 miles north would be four units up on a graph. The last line would be the hypotenuse. Now, if you know about special right triangles, then it can be recognized that the triangle is a 3-4-5 triangle, and the hypotenuse is 5 units. Otherwise, the Pythagorean theorem can be used.

a^2+b^2=c^2
3^2+4^2=c^2
9+16=c^2
25=c^2

X = 6

28 = -2 - 5x
28 + 2 = 5x
30 = 5x
30/5 = 5x/5 (we divide by five on both side because we want x to be by itself)
6 = x

June Elloy makes a 22 percent down payment on a home in Rockford, Illinois. What is the purchase price of the home assuming her down payment is \$35,200?

Total purchase price of of the home is \$160000

Step-by-step explanation:

We know that

Percent of down payment June Elloy makes = 22 %

Down payment is = \$35200

Let x be the total purchase price.

Therefore,

22 % of x = 35200

( 22 / 100 ) times x = 35200

0.22 times x =35200

x = 35200 / 0.22

= 160000

Thus, total purchase price of of the home is \$160000

The total cost for Saturday's shipment, \$1800, is represented by the equation 15x+20y=1800. Help me intercepts X- and y- intercepts

You could find the x and y-intercepts by isolating these variables on one side. We'll start by finding y.

15x+20y=1800
20y=1800-15x
y=(1800-15x)/20

Now, we insert this y into the original equation (substitution).

15x+20[(1800-15x)/2]=1800

Now we combine like terms and solve for x.

15x+(36000-300x/2)=1800
36000-300x/2=-15x+1800
36000-300x=-30x+3600
36000=270x+3600
32400=270x
x=120

So the x-intercept is 120. Now, we can either go through that long process again to find the y-intercept (which is really inefficient, and you probably won't have time to do so on a test), or we can just input the x value we got into the original equation.

15x+20y=1800
15(120)+20y=1800
1800+20y=1800
20y=0
y=0

I'm not 100% sure about the y being 0, but I'm pretty sure. Hope this helped.

Explain why 3(5x) is not equivalent to (3*5)(3*x).

Wow. Ok, really simple, honestly. Because 3(5x) = 15x. (3*5)(3*x) = 3*5 = 15*3 = 45x. Therefore, 15x and 45x do not correspond to each other at all, meaning that 3(5x) is not equivalent to (3*5)(3*x)!!!
