A cash register contains $5 bills and $20 bills with a total value of $180 . If there are 15 bills total, then how many of each does the register contain?
Let f be the number of $5 dollar bills and t be the number of $20 bills. We're given the following equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]f + t = 15
[*]5f + 20t = 180

A cashier has 44 bills, all of which are $10 or $20 bills. The total value of the money is $730. How many of each type of bill does the cashier have?
Let a be the amount of $10 bills and b be the amount of $20 bills. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + b = 44
[*]10a + 20b = 730
[/LIST]
We rearrange equation 1 in terms of a. We subtract b from each side and we get:
[LIST=1]
[*]a = 44 - b
[*]10a + 20b = 730
[/LIST]
Now we substitute equation (1) for a into equation (2):
10(44 - b) + 20b = 730
Multiply through to remove the parentheses:
440 - 10b + 20b = 730
Group like terms:
440 + 10b = 730
Now, to solve for b, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=440%2B10b%3D730&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
b = [B]29
[/B]
To get a, we take b = 29 and substitute it into equation (1) above:
a = 44 - 29
a = [B]15
[/B]
So we have [B]15 ten-dollar bills[/B] and [B]29 twenty-dollar bills[/B]

a company has revenue given by R(x)=500x dollars and total cost given by C(x)=48,000 + 100x dollars, where x is the number of units produced and sold. How many units will give a profit
Profit P(x) is given by:
R(x) - C(x)
So we have:
P(x) = 500x - (100x + 48,000)
P(x) = 500x - 100x - 48,000
P(x) = 400x - 48,000
A profit is found when P(x) > 0, so we have:
400x - 48000 > 0
To solve this inequality, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=400x-48000%3E0&pl=Solve']we type it into our search engine [/URL]and we get:

A garden has a length that is three times its width. If the width is n feet and fencing cost $8 per

A garden has a length that is three times its width. If the width is n feet and fencing cost $8 per foot, what is the cost of the fencing for the garden?
Garden is a rectangle which has Perimeter P of:
P = 2l + 2w
l = 3w
P = 2(3w) + 2w
P = 6w + 2w
P = 8w
Width w = n, so we have:
P = 8n
Cost = 8n * 8 = [B]64n dollars[/B]

A gasoline tank is leaking at a rate of n gallons in t hours. If the gasoline cost $2 per gallon, what is the value of the gasoline that will be lost in m minutes?
n gallons / t hours = n/t gallons per hour are leaking
The value of the gas that leaks each hour is $2, so we have:
2n/t dollar per hour is leaking
Value per minute means we divide by 60:
2n/60t
Dividing top and bottom by 2 to simplify, we have:
n/30t
Given m minutes, we multiply to get:
[B]nm/30t[/B]

A vehicle purchased for $25,000 depreciates at a constant rate of 5%. Determine the approximate valu

A vehicle purchased for $25,000 depreciates at a constant rate of 5%. Determine the approximate value of the vehicle 11 years after purchase. Round to the nearest whole dollar.
Depreciation at 5% means it retains 95% of the value. Set up the depreciation equation to get Book Value B(t) at time t.
B(t) = $25,000 * (1 - 0.05)^t
Simplifying, this is:
B(t) = $25,000 * (0.95)^t
The problem asks for B(11)
B(11) = $25,000 * (0.95)^11
B(11) = $25,000 * 0.5688
B(11) = [B]$14,220[/B]

A vendor sells h hot dogs and s sodas. If a hot dog costs twice as much as a soda, and if the vendor takes in a total of d dollars, how many cents does a soda cost?
Let the cost of the soda be p. So the cost of a hot dog is 2p.
The total cost of hot dogs:
2hp
The total cost of sodas:
ps
The total cost of both equals d. So we set the total cost of hots dogs plus sodas equal to d:
2hp + ps = d
We want to know the cost of a soda (p). So we have a literal equation. We factor out p from the left side:
p(2h + s) = d
Divide each side of the equation by (2h + s)
p(2h + s)/(2h + s) = d/(2h + s)
Cancel the (2h + s) on the left side, we get:
p = [B]d/(2h + s[/B])

An eccentric millionaire decided to give away $1,000,000 if Janelle took one die and rolled a "4". He wanted Janelle to have a better than 1 in 6 chance of winning, so before she rolled the die he told her that she could roll the die 3 times. If any roll was a "4", she would win the million dollars. What are Janelle's chances of winning the million dollars?
Chance of winning each roll is 1/6. Which means the chances of losing each roll are 1 - 1/6 = 5/6
Calculate the probability of 3 straight losing rolls:
P(Lose) = P(Loser) * P(Loser) * P(Loser) = 5/6 * 5/6 * 5/6 = 125/216
P(Win) = 1 - P(Lose)
P(Win) = 1 - 125/216
P(Win) = 216/216 -125/216
P(Win) = [B]91/216[/B]

Find the amount of money spent on each type of purchase.

Caleb earns points on his credit card that he can use towards future purchases.

Let f = dollars spent on flights, h dollars spent on hotels, and p dollars spent on all other purchases.
[U]Set up our equations:[/U]
(1) 4f + 2h + p = 14660
(2) f + h + p = 9480
(3) f = 2h + 140
[U]First, substitute (3) into (2)[/U]
(2h + 140) + h + p = 9480
3h + p + 140 = 9480
3h + p = 9340
[U]Subtract 3h to isolate p to form equation (4)[/U]
(4) p = 9340 - 3h
[U]Take (3) and (4), and substitute into (1)[/U]

Take the [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/dfii.php?term1=-30x%5E2+%2B+360x+%2B+785&fpt=0&ptarget1=0&ptarget2=0&itarget=0%2C1&starget=0%2C1&nsimp=8&pl=1st+Derivative']derivative of the profit function[/URL]:
P'(x) = -60x + 360
We find the maximum when we set the profit derivative equal to 0
-60x + 360 = 0
Subtract 360 from both sides:
-60x = -360
Divide each side by -60
[B]x = 6 <-- This is the ticket price to maximize profit[/B]
Substitute x = 6 into the profit equation:
P(6) = -30(6)^2 + 360(6) + 785
P(6) = -1080 + 2160 + 785
[B]P(6) = 1865[/B]

There is a sales tax of $15 on an item that costs $153 before tax. A second item costs $81.60 before

There is a sales tax of $15 on an item that costs $153 before tax. A second item costs $81.60 before tax. What is the sales tax on the second item?
We assume the goods are bought in the same store, so tax rates are the same:
Tax Rate = Tax Amount / Cost before tax
Tax Rate = 15/153
Tax Rate = 0.098 or 9.8%
Calculate sales tax on the second item
Sales Tax = Cost before Tax * Tax Rate
Sales Tax = 81.60 * 0.098
Sales Tax = 7.9968
We round to 2 decimals for dollars and cents and we get:
Sales Tax = [B]$8.00[/B]

Three people went to lunch and bought a large meal which they all split. The total cost, including tip, was $30. Each person paid $10 to the waitress and started to leave the restaurant. As they left, the waitress came running up to them with five dollars saying that she made a mistake and that the meal and tip should have cost only $25.
The waitress then gave each person one dollar, but didn't know how to split the remaining two dollars. They told her to keep the extra two dollars as an additional tip.
When the people started talking about what had just happened, they started getting confused. They had each paid $10 for the meal and received one dollar back, so they each really paid $9 for the meal for a total of $27. Add the two dollars of extra tip and the total is $29. Where did the extra one dollar go?
[B]The missing dollar is not really missing. The cost of the meal is really $27. The $25 plus the extra two dollar tip was given to the waitress -- $27
What we have is the cost ($27) plus the refund ($3) = $30.
The $30 that was originally paid is accounted for as follows:
Restaurant + regular waitress tip: $25
Three people: $3 (refund)
Waitress: $2 (extra tip)
$25 + $3 + $2 = $30[/B]
