# Mrs. baker paid 2.50 for 5 pounds of bananas. write an equation relating the cost c to the number of pounds p of bananas. how much would mrs. baker pay for 8 pounds of bananas

first, we define the variables:

x: number of years after 1950

f (x): amount of vinyl sold.

then, with the variables defined, we have:

68594 vinyl records were sold in 1958 > f (8) = 68594

91299 vinyl records were sold in 1961 > f (11) = 91299

38720 vinyl records were sold in 1952 > f (2) = 38720

161743 vinyl records were sold in 1967 > f (17) = 161743

step-by-step explanation:

the graph in the attached figure

step-by-step explanation:

we have

using a graphing tool

the graph in the attached figure

the roots are ( x-intercepts) x=-0.5,x=1,x=3

the y-intercept is the point (0,3)

a.   we have two

lines:   y = 4-x   and

y = 8-x^-1

given two simultaneous equations that are both to be

true, then the solution is the points where the lines cross. the intersection is

where the two equations are equal. therefore the solution that works for both

equations is when

4-x = 8-x^-1

this is where the two lines will cross and that is the

common point that satisfies both equations.

b.   4-x = 8-x^-1

x           4-x       8-x^-1

-3           7

8.33

-2           6         8.5

-1           5         9

0           4

-

1           3

7

2           2

7.5

3           1         7.67

the table shows that none of the x values from -3 to 3 is

the solution because in no case does

4-x = 8-x^-1

to find the solution we need to rearrange the equation to

find for x:

4-x = 8-x^-1

multiply both sides with x:

4x-x^2 = 8x-1

x^2+4x-1=0

x= -4.236, 0.236

therefore there are two points that satisfies the

equation.

find y:

x=-4.236

y = 4-x   = 4 – (-4.236)

= 8.236

y = 8-x^-1 =   .236)^-1

= 8.236

x=0.236

y = 4-x   = 4 – (0.236) = 3.764

y = 8-x^-1 =   8-(0.236)^-1

= 3.764

thus the two lines cross at 2 points:

(-4.236, 8.236) & (0.236, 3.764)

c.   to solve

graphically the equation 4-x = 8-x^-1

we would graph both lines: y = 4-x   and   y

= 8-x^-1

the point on the graph where the lines cross is the

solution to the system of equations.

just graph the points on part b on a cartesian coordinate

system and extend the two lines.   the

solution is, as stated, the point where the two lines cross on the graph.
