$\left(-\infty ,4\right]$

## Technology

For the following exercises, input the left-hand side of the inequality as a Y1 graph in your graphing utility. Enter y2 = the right-hand side. Entering the absolute value of an expression is found in the MATH menu, Num, 1:abs(. Find the points of intersection, recall (2 nd CALC 5:intersection, 1 st curve, enter, 2 nd curve, enter, guess, enter). Copy a sketch of the graph and shade the x -axis for your solution set to the inequality. Write final answers in interval notation.

## Real-world applications

In chemistry the volume for a certain gas is given by $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}V=20T,$ where V is measured in cc and T is temperature in ºC. If the temperature varies between 80ºC and 120ºC, find the set of volume values.

$\begin{array}{l}80\le T\le 120\\ 1,600\le 20T\le 2,400\end{array}$

A basic cellular package costs $20/mo. for 60 min of calling, with an additional charge of$.30/min beyond that time.. The cost formula would be $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}C=\text{}20+.30\left(x-60\right).\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ If you have to keep your bill lower than \$50, what is the maximum calling minutes you can use?

## The Rectangular Coordinate Systems and Graphs

## Models and Applications

For the following exercises, write and solve an equation to answer each question.

The number of males in the classroom is five more than three times the number of females. If the total number of students is 73, how many of each gender are in the class?

females 17, males 56

A laser rangefinder is locked on a comet approaching Earth. The distance g(x), in kilometers, of the comet after x days, for x in the interval 0 to 30 days, is given by g(x)=250,000csc(π30x). Graph g(x) on the interval [0, 35]. Evaluate g(5)  and interpret the information. What is the minimum distance between the comet and Earth? When does this occur? To which constant in the equation does this correspond? Find and discuss the meaning of any vertical asymptotes.
