A clothing business finds there is a linear relationship between the number of shirts, n , it can sell and the price, p , it can charge per shirt. In particular, historical data shows that 1,000 shirts can be sold at a price of $ 30 , while 3,000 shirts can be sold at a price of $22. Find a linear equation in the form p ( n ) = m n + b that gives the price p they can charge for n shirts.

p ( n ) = 0.004 n + 34

Suppose that average annual income (in dollars) for the years 1990 through 1999 is given by the linear function: I ( x ) = 1054 x + 23 , 286 , where x is the number of years after 1990. Which of the following interprets the slope in the context of the problem?

  1. As of 1990, average annual income was $23,286.
  2. In the ten-year period from 1990–1999, average annual income increased by a total of $1,054.
  3. Each year in the decade of the 1990s, average annual income increased by $1,054.
  4. Average annual income rose to a level of $23,286 by the end of 1999.

When temperature is 0 degrees Celsius, the Fahrenheit temperature is 32. When the Celsius temperature is 100, the corresponding Fahrenheit temperature is 212. Express the Fahrenheit temperature as a linear function of C , the Celsius temperature, F ( C ) .

  1. Find the rate of change of Fahrenheit temperature for each unit change temperature of Celsius.
  2. Find and interpret F ( 28 ) .
  3. Find and interpret F ( –40 ) .
  1. Rate of change = Δ F Δ C = 212 32 100 0 = 1.8  degrees F for one degree change in C
  2. F ( 28 ) = 1.8 ( 28 ) + 32 = 82.4  degrees F is 28 degrees C
  3. F ( 40 ) = 1.8 ( 40 ) + 32 = 40  degrees F is -40 degrees C

what is the formula for calculating algebraic
Propessor Reply
I think the formula for calculating algebraic is the statement of the equality of two expression stimulate by a set of addition, multiplication, soustraction, division, raising to a power and extraction of Root. U believe by having those in the equation you will be in measure to calculate it
