In 1996 Ato Boldon of UCLA ran the 100-meter dash in 9.92 seconds. In 1969 John Carlos of San Jose State ran the 100-yard dash in 9.1 seconds. Which runner had the faster average speed?
We [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/linearcon.php?quant=100&type=yard&pl=Calculate']convert yards to meters using our conversion calculator[/URL] and we get:
100 yards = 91.44 meters
Now we set up a proportion of time per meter:
[LIST]
[*]Ato Boldon: 9.92/100 = 0.992 per meter
[*]John Carlos: 9.1/91.44 = 0.995 per meter
[/LIST]
[B]Since Ato Boldon's time was [I]less per meter[/I], he had the faster average speed[/B]

You are purchasing carpeting for an office building. The space to be carpeted is 30 feet by 50 feet.

You are purchasing carpeting for an office building. The space to be carpeted is 30 feet by 50 feet. Company A charges $2.99 per square foot plus a $200 installation charge. Company B charges $19.99 per square yard plus a $500 installation charge. What is the best deal?
Did you notice the word snuck in on this problem? Company B is given in square [I][B]yards[/B][/I], not feet. Let's convert their price to square feet to match company A.
[U]Company B conversion:[/U]
Since we have 1 square yard = 3 feet * 3 feet = 9 square feet, we need to solve the following proportion:
$19.99/square yard * 1 square yard/9 feet = $19.99 square yard / 9 feet = $2.22 / square foot.
Now, let's set up the cost equations C(s) for each Company in square feet (s)
[LIST]
[*]Company A: C(s) = 200 + 2.99s
[*]Company B: C(s) = 500 + 2.22s
[/LIST]
The problem asks for s = 30 feet * 50 feet = 1500 square feet. So we want to calculate C(1500)
[U]Company A:[/U]
C(1500) = 200 + 2.99(1500)
C(1500) = 200 + 4485
C(1500) = 4685
[U]Company B:[/U]
C(1500) = 500 + 2.22(1500)
C(1500) = 500 + 3330
C(1500) = 3830
Since [B]Company B[/B] has the lower cost per square foot, they are the better buy.
