The quadratic function, s(t) = ‐ 16t2 + 64t +200, models the ball’s height above the ground, s(t), in feet, t seconds after it was thrown. a) After how many seconds does the ball reach its maximum height? What is the maximum height? b) How many seconds does it take until the ball finally hits the ground? Round to the nearest tenth of a second. c) Find s(0) and describe what this means. d) Use your results from parts (a) through (c) to graph the quadratic function. Begin the graph with t = 0 and end with the value of t for which the ball hits the ground. Virtual Fido is a company that makes electronic virtual pets. The fixed weekly cost is $3000, and the cost for each pet is $20. a) Let x represent the number of virtual pets made and sold each week. Write the weekly cost function, C, for Virtual Fido. b) The function R(x) = – x2 + 1000x describes the money that Virtual Fido takes in each week from the sale of x virtual pets. Use this revenue function and the cost function from part a) to write the weekly profit function, P. (Note: Profit = Revenue – Cost) c) Use the profit function to determine the number of virtual pets that should be made and sold each week to maximize profit. What is the maximum weekly profit?

You found a suitcase full of money. There was $14,000 in the suitcase. After all the excitement of finding the money you decide to invest it for 10 years? You can either invest it at 6.85% compounded continuously or at 7% compounded monthly. Which investment gives you a greater return? 22. The function P(x) = 14.7e – 0.21x models the average atmospheric pressure, P(x), in pounds per square inch, at an altitude of x miles above sea level. The atmospheric pressure at the peak of Mt Everest, the world’s highest mountain, is 4.6 pounds per square inch. How many miles above sea level, to the nearest tenth of a mile, is the peak of Mt. Everest? 23. According to the U.S. Bureau of the Census, in 1990 there were 22.4 million residents of Hispanic origin living in the United States. By 2005 the number had increased to 41.9 million. The exponential growth function A = 22.4 ekt describes the U/S. Hispanic population, A, in millions, t years after 1990. a) Find k, correct to three decimal places. b) Use the resulting model to project the Hispanic resident population in 2010. c) In which year will the Hispanic resident population reach 60 million? ...
