A retired couple invested $8000 in bonds. At the end of one year, they received an interest payment

A retired couple invested $8000 in bonds. At the end of one year, they received an interest payment of $584. What was the simple interest rate of the bonds?
For simple interest, we have:
Balance * interest rate = Interest payment
8000i = 584
Divide each side of the equation by 8000 to isolate i:
8000i/8000 = 584/8000
Cancelling the 8000's on the left side, we get:
i = 0.073
Most times, interest rates are expressed as a percentage.

A woman walked for 5 hours, first along a level road, then up a hill, and then she turned around and walked back to the starting point along the same path. She walks 4mph on level ground, 3 mph uphill, and 6 mph downhill. Find the distance she walked.
Hint: Think about d = rt, which means that t = d/r. Think about each section of her walk, what is the distance and the rate. You know that the total time is 5 hours, so you know the sum of the times from each section must be 5.
Let Level distance = L and hill distance = H. Add the times it took for each section of the walk:

A young dad, who was a star football player in college, set up a miniature football field for his five-year-old young daughter, who was already displaying an unusual talent for place-kicking. At each end of the mini-field, he set up goal posts so she could practice kicking extra points and field goals. He was very careful to ensure the goalposts were each straight up and down and that the crossbars were level. On each set, the crossbar was six feet long, and a string from the top of each goalpost to the midpoint between them on the ground measured five feet. How tall were the goalposts? How do you know this to be true?
The center of each crossbar is 3 feet from each goalpost. We get this by taking half of 6, since midpoint means halfway.
Imagine a third post midway between the two goal posts. It has the same height as the two goalposts.
From the center post, the string from the top of a goalpost to the base of the center post, and half the crossbar form and right triangle with hypotenuse 5 feet and one leg 3 feet.
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/pythag.php?side1input=&side2input=3&hypinput=5&pl=Solve+Missing+Side']Using the Pythagorean Theorem[/URL], the other leg -- the height of each post -- is 4 feet.

After a long journey, you finally arrive at the edge o a deep gorge where there are two identical bridges from which to choose your path to the other side.
One bridge is safe, while the other is very dangerous and has caused the deaths of hundreds of travelers. The owner of the first bridge is a talking rat, while the owner of the second bridge is a talking frog. Friends told you before you left that one of the bridge owners always tells the truth, while the other always lies.
You are allowed one question to ask of either the frog or the rat to find out which bridge is the safe bridge. What is the question that you would ask?
[B]Ask the frog the following question: "If I were to ask the rat which bridge is the same bridge, which one would he point to?"

If the frog is the truth teller, he would tell you that the rat would point to the dangerous bridge.
If the frog is the liar, the truth telling rat would point out the safe bridge, but the lying frog would tell you he said the dangerous bridge.
In both situations, the dangerous bridge would be pointed to. Take the other bridge.

Choose the equation of a line in standard form that satisfies the given conditions. perpendicular to 4x + y = 8 through (4, 3).
Step 1: Find the slope of the line 4x + y = 8.
In y = mx + b form, we have y = -4x + 8.
The slope is -4.
To be perpendicular to a line, the slope must be a negative reciprocal of the line it intersects with.
Reciprocal of -4 = -1/4
Negative of this = -1(-1/4) = 1/4

The distance between X and 8 is less than 14

Distance implies the positive difference between 2 points. Therefore, we use absolute value:
|x - 8| < 14
Note, we use less than since 14 is not included.

The function f(x) = e^x(x - 3) has a critical point at x =

The function f(x) = e^x(x - 3) has a critical point at x =
The critical point is where the derivative equals 0.
We multiply through for f(x) to get:
f(x) = xe^x - 3e^x
Using the product rule on the first term f'g + fg', we get:
f'(x) = xe^x + e^x - 3e^x
f'(x) = xe^x -2e^x
f'(x) = e^x(x - 2)
We want f'(x) = 0
e^x(x - 2) = 0
When [B]x = 2[/B], then f'(x) = 0

The school yearbook costs $15 per book to produce with an overhead of $5500. The yearbook sells for $40. Write a cost and revenue function and determine the break-even point.
[U]Calculate cost function C(b) with b as the number of books:[/U]
C(b) = Cost per book * b + Overhead
[B]C(b) = 15b + 5500[/B]
[U]Calculate Revenue Function R(b) with b as the number of books:[/U]
R(b) = Sales Price per book * b
[B]R(b) = 40b[/B]
[U]Calculate break even function E(b):[/U]
Break-even Point = Revenue - Cost
Break-even Point = R(b) - C(b)
Break-even Point = 40b - 15b - 5500
Break-even Point = 25b - 5500
[U]Calculate break even point:[/U]
Break-even point is where E(b) = 0. So we set 25b - 5500 equal to 0
25b - 5500 = 0
