A bakery has a fixed cost of $119.75 per a day plus $2.25 for each pastry. The bakery would like to keep its daily costs at or below $500 per day. Which inequality shows the maximum number of pastries, p, that can be baked each day.
Set up the cost function C(p), where p is the number of pastries:
C(p) = Variable Cost + Fixed Cost
C(p) = 2.25p + 119.75
The problem asks for C(p) at or below $500 per day. The phrase [I]at or below[/I] means less than or equal to (<=).
[B]2.25p + 119.75 <= 500[/B]

An elevator can hold less than 2700 pounds of extra weight. If an average person weighs 150 pounds, what is the maximum number of people (p) that can be on the elevator at one time?
Total weight = average weight per person * Number of people

DeAndre is a spelunker (someone who explores caves). One day DeAndre is exploring a cave that has a series of ladders going down into the depths. Every ladder is exactly 10 feet tall, and there is no other way to descend or ascend (the other paths in the cave are flat). DeAndre starts at 186 feet in altitude, and reaches a maximum depth of 86 feet in altitude.Write an equation for DeAndre's altitude, using x to represent the number of ladders DeAndre used (hint: a ladder takes DeAndre down in altitude, so the coefficient should be negative).
Set up a function A(x) for altitude, where x is the number of ladders used. Each ladder takes DeAndre down 10 feet, so this would be -10x. And DeAndre starts at 186 feet, so we'd have:

Next, they will go bowling ($20), go to the movies ($30) or go to a museum ($10). Edna also is deciding between a new wallet ($12) and a cell phone case ($20) as possible gift options for Curt. What is the maximum cost of this date?
Edna has 3 phases of the date:

[*]Dinner - Max price is Italian food at $30
[*]Event after dinner - Max price is movies at $30
[*]Gift Option - Max price option is the cell phone cast at $20

Hope it's okay to ask this here?

a) 1800 is the cost to run the business for a day. To clarify, when you plug in x = 0 for 0 candy bars sold, you are left with -1,800, which is the cost of doing business for one day.
b) Maximum profit is found by taking the derivative of the profit equation and setting it equal to 0.
P'(x) = -0.002x + 3
With P'(x) = 0, we get:
-0.002x + 3 = 0
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=-0.002x%2B3%3D0&pl=Solve']equation solver[/URL], we get:
x = 1,500
To get maximum profit, we plug in x = 1,500 to our [I]original profit equation[/I]
P(1,500) = ? 0.001(1,500)^2 + 3(1,500) ? 1800
P(1,500) = -2,250 + 4,500 - 1,800
P(1,500) = $[B]450[/B]

[SIZE=4]There are 5 pencil-cases on the desk. Each pencil-case contains at least 10 pencils, but not more than 14 pencils. Which of the following could be the total number of pencils in all 5 cases?
A) 35
B) 45
C) 65
D) 75
[U]Determine the minimum amount of pencils (At least means greater than or equal to):[/U]
Minimum Amount of pencils = Cases * Min Quantity
Minimum Amount of pencils = 5 * 10
Minimum Amount of pencils = 50
[SIZE=4][U]Determine the maximum amount of pencils (Not more than means less than or equal to):[/U]
Maximum Amount of pencils = Cases * Min Quantity
Maximum Amount of pencils = 5 * 14
Maximum Amount of pencils = 70[/SIZE]
So our range of pencils (p) is:
50 <= p <= 70
Now take a look at our answer choices. The only answer which fits in this inequality range is [B]C, 65[/B].

There are 72 boys and 90 girls on the Math team For the next math competition Mr Johnson would like

There are 72 boys and 90 girls on the Math team For the next math competition Mr Johnson would like to arrange all of the students in equal rows with only girls or boys in each row with only girls or boys in each row. What is the greatest number of students that can be put in each row?
To find the maximum number (n) of boys or girls in each row, we want the GCF (Greatest Common Factor) of 72 and 90.
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/gcflcm.php?num1=72&num2=90&num3=&pl=GCF+and+LCM']Using our GCF calculator for GCF(72,90)[/URL], we get 18.
[LIST]
[*]72 boys divided by 18 = [B]4 rows of boys[/B]
[*]90 girls divided by 18 = [B]5 rows of girls[/B]

X is the speed limit is a maximum 65 mph

X is the speed limit is a maximum 65 mph
A maximum of means less than or equal to. Or, no more than. So we have the inequality:
[B]X <= 65[/B]

You roll two six-sided dice. What is the probability that the sum is less than 13?

You roll two six-sided dice. What is the probability that the sum is less than 13?
The probability is [B]1, or 100%[/B], since the maximum sum of two six-sided dice is 12.

“The shortest person in a class is 55 inches tall and tallest person in that class is 75 inches tall

The shortest person in a class is 55 inches tall and tallest person in that class is 75 inches tall. write an absolute value equation that requires the minimum and maximum height. Use X to represent heights.
We write our inequality as:
[B]55 <= X <= 75[/B]
