Axia College Material Appendix C In business, accounting, and many other fields, formulas are frequently used to make predictions about costs or profit. Solve each problem: 1.) The manager of a restaurant figures the cost of making coffee is m = 0.049x, where m is the cost of making x cups. Find the cost of making 600 cups of coffee. M= .049(600) M= $29.40 2.) Mr. Albertson owns and operates Appealing Apple Pies. A consultant gave him the following formula to analyze his profits P = 2x – 0.01x 2 Where p is the profit and x is the number of pies baked. Find the profit on 60 pies. P = 2(60)-.01(60^2) P = $84.00 3.) The following formula is used by some taxi companies to figure how much to charge for a ride: C =f + rd, Where C is the charge for the ride, f is a fixed charge, r is the rate per tenth of a mile, and d is the distance of the ride in tenths of a mile. Find the charge if f is

Unformatted text preview: $2.10, the rate is $0.30, and the ride is 25 tenths of a mile. C = 2.10 + .30(250) C = $77.10 If the driver usually fills his tank of gas twice, at $50 a time, how many rides does the driver have to give to make his goal of $300 profit a day? 77.10x = 400 X = 5.2. Im using $400 here because if he spends 50 dollars twice a day thats $100. In order to get a profit of $300 he needs to earn $400. 4.) The Jacksons plan a 3-Week trip with a budget of $600 for renting a car. Car rental rates are $135/week plus $0.17/km. Write a formula to show the number of kilometers the Jacksons can travel. 600 3(135) = 195/.17 = 1.15 600 405 = 195 How many kilometers can the Jacksons travel based on your formula? The Jacksons can travel 1.15km with $195 left....
