A bank charges a service fee of $7.50 per month for a checking account. A bank account has $85.00. I

A bank charges a service fee of $7.50 per month for a checking account. A bank account has $85.00. If no money is deposited or withdrawn except the service charge, how many months until the account balance is negative?
Let m be the number of months. Our balance is denoted by B(m):
B(m) = 85 - 7.5m
The question asks when B(m) is less than 0. So we set up an inequality:
85 - 7.5m < 0
To solve this inequality for m, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=85-7.5m%3C0&pl=Solve']we type it in our search engine[/URL] and we get:
m > 11.3333
We round up to the next whole integer and get [B]m = 12[/B]

A car is purchased for $24,000 . Each year it loses 30% of its value. After how many years will the car be worth $7300 or less? (Use the calculator provided if necessary.) Write the smallest possible whole number answer.
Set up the depreciation equation D(t) where t is the number of years in the life of the car:
D(t) = 24,000 * (1 - 0.3)^t
D(t) = 24000 * (0.7)^t
The problem asks for D(t)<=7300
24000 * (0.7)^t = 7300
Divide each side by 24000
(0.7)^t = 7300/24000
(0.7)^t= 0.30416666666
Take the natural log of both sides:
LN(0.7^t) = -1.190179482215518
Using the natural log identities, we have:
t * LN(0.7) = -1.190179482215518
t * -0.35667494393873245= -1.190179482215518
Divide each side by -0.35667494393873245
t = 3.33687437943
[B]Rounding this up, we have t = 4[/B]

A certain species of fish costs $3.19 each. You can spend at most $35. How many of this type of fish can you buy for your aquarium?
Let the number of fish be f. We have the following inequality where "at most" means less than or equal to:
3.19f <= 35
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/interval-notation-calculator.php?num=3.19f%3C%3D35&pl=Show+Interval+Notation']Typing this inequality into our search engine[/URL], we get:
f <= 10.917
Since we need a whole number of fish, we can buy a maximum of [B]10 fish[/B].

A company has 3,100 employees and is expected to grow at a rate of 0.04 for the next six years. How many employees will they have in 6 years? Round to the nearest whole number.
We build the following exponential equation:
Final Balance = Initial Balance * (1 + growth rate)^time
Final Balance = 3100(1.04)^6
Final Balance = 3100 * 1.2653190185
Final Balance = 3922.48895734
The problem asks us to round to the nearest whole number. Since 0.488 is less than 0.5, we round [U]down.[/U]
Final Balance = [B]3,922[/B]

A corn refining company produces corn gluten cattle feed at a variable cost of $84 per ton. If fixed costs are $110,000 per month and the feed sells for $132 per ton, how many tons should be sold each month to have a monthly profit of $560,000?
[U]Set up the cost function C(t) where t is the number of tons of cattle feed:[/U]
C(t) = Variable Cost * t + Fixed Costs
C(t) = 84t + 110000
[U]Set up the revenue function R(t) where t is the number of tons of cattle feed:[/U]

R(t) = 132t
[U]Set up the profit function P(t) where t is the number of tons of cattle feed:[/U]
P(t) = R(t) - C(t)
P(t) = 132t - (84t + 110000)
P(t) = 132t - 84t - 110000
P(t) = 48t - 110000
[U]The question asks for how many tons (t) need to be sold each month to have a monthly profit of 560,000. So we set P(t) = 560000:[/U]

A large storage container is filled with 44.9 quarts of water. One quart of water is equivalent to 32 fluid ounces. How many fluid ounces of water are stored in the container? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
44.9 quarts * 32 fluid ounce / quart = 1,436.8
if we found to the nearest whole number, we round up since 0.8 is greater than 0.5, so we get:
[B]1,437 fluid ounces[/B]

A plant is 15 cm high and grows 4.5 cm every month. How many months will it take until the plant is 27.5 cm
We set up the height function H(m) where m is the number of months since now. We have:
H(m) = 4.5m + 15
We want to know when H(m) = 27.5, so we set our H(m) function equal to 27.5:
4.5m + 15 = 27.5
To solve for m, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=4.5m%2B15%3D27.5&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:

A taxi charges a flat rate of $1.75, plus an additional $0.65 per mile. If Erica has at most 10$ to spend on the cab ride, how far could she travel?
Set up the cost function C(m) where m is the number of miles:
C(m) = 0.65m + 1.75
If Erica has $10, then C(m) = 10, so we have:
0.65m + 1.75 = 10

It costs $4.25 per game at the bowling alley plus $1.90 to rent shoes. if Wayne has $20, how many games can he Bowl?
Let g be the number of games. The cost for Wayne is:
C(g) = Cost per game * number of games + shoe rental
4.25g + 1.90 = C(g)
We're given C(g) = 20, so we have:

Jeff Bezos, who owns Amazon, has a net worth of approximately $143.1 billion (as of mid-2018). An employee in the Amazon distribution center earns about $13 an hour. The estimated lifespan of the employee is 71 years. If the employee worked 24 hours a day, every day of the year from the moment of his birth, how many lifespans would it take for him to earn wages equivalent to Jeff Bezos' net worth? Round the answer to the nearest whole number.
Calculate earnings per lifespan:
Earnings per lifespan = lifespan in years * Annual Earnings
Earnings per lifespan = 71 * 13 * 24 * 365 <-- (24 hours per day * 365 days per year)
Earnings per lifespan = 8,085,480
Calculate the number of lifespans needed to match Jeff Bezos earnings:
Number of lifespans = Jeff Bezos Net Worth / Earnings Per Lifespan
Number of lifespans = 143,100,000,000 / 8,085,480
Number of lifespans = [B]17,698.39 ~ 17,699[/B]

Larry is buying new clothes for his return to school. He is buying shoes for $57 and shirts cost $15 each. He has $105 to spend. Which of the following can be solved to find the number of shirts he can afford?
Let s be the number of shirts. Since shoes are a one-time fixed cost, we have:

n <= 7.194
We want whole notebooks, we cannot buy fractions of notebooks, so we have:

Penny bought a new car for $25,000. The value of the car has decreased in value at rate of 3% each

Penny bought a new car for $25,000. The value of the car has decreased in value at rate of 3% each year since. Let x = the number of years since 2010 and y = the value of the car. What will the value of the car be in 2020? Write the equation, using the variables above, that represents this situation and solve the problem, showing the calculation you did to get your solution. Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
We have the equation y(x):
y(x) = 25,000(0.97)^x <-- Since a 3 % decrease is the same as multiplying the starting value by 0.97
The problem asks for y(2020). So x = 2020 - 2010 = 10.
y(10) = 25,000(0.97)^10
y(10) = 25,000(0.73742412689)
y(10) = [B]18,435.60[/B]

The population of a town is currently 22,000. This represents an increase of 40% from the population

The population of a town is currently 22,000. This represents an increase of 40% from the population 5 years ago. Find the population of the town 5 years ago. Round to the nearest whole number if necessary.
To get the population 5 years ago, we'd discount the current population of 22,000 by 40%. We can write a 40% discount as 1.4.
Population 5 years ago = 22,000/1.4
Population 5 years ago = 15,714.29

The fruit drinks are $1.50 and the chips are $1.00. Your friends want you to buy a total of 10 items. How many drinks and how many chips were you able to purchase?
Let c be the number of chips. Let f be the number of fruit drinks. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]c + f = 10
[*]c + 1.5f = 12.50
[/LIST]
Rearrange equation 1 by subtracting f from both sides:
[LIST=1]
[*]c = 10 - f
[*]c + 1.5f = 12.50
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into equation (2):
10 - f + 1.5f = 12.50
To solve for f, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=10-f%2B1.5f%3D12.50&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
[B]f = 5[/B]
Now, substitute this f = 5 value back into modified equation (1) above:
c = 10 - 5
[B]c = 5[/B]
