3. Finally, we need to look for the largest number (which represents the highest calibration cost relative to total costs). Houston A: 0.34/(35.3-19.16) = 0.021 Houston AA: 0.75/(39.2-19.55) = 0.038 Houston AA+: 0.012/(42.7-23.388) = 0.0006 Ramon 1: 0.92/(63.4-33.88) = 0.031 Ramon 2: 1.1/(82.4-38.8) = 0.025 Therefore, Houston AA has the highest calibration cost relative to its total cost.
Copyright 10 Question #8 Marsha is responsible for buying writing supplies for the office. Paper is £20 per box, pencils are £10 per package and pens are £35 per package. When Marsha goes to buy the supplies, she discovers that there is a 10% off sale on pens. If Marsha has £300 to spend on supplies, and she must buy one box of paper for every package of pencils or pens, and more packages of pencils than packages of pens, what is the greatest number of packages of pens that Marsha can buy? A. 0 B. 1 C. 2 D. 3 E. 4 The correct answer is (D). In order for Marsha to buy the greatest number of pens, she needs to buy the smallest number of pencils and paper: 1. We know that Marsha has to buy one box of paper for every package of pens/pencils she buys. Therefore, for her to buy the smallest number of paper, she needs to buy one package of paper for each package of pencils/pens (and no more than that) . 2. We also know that Marsha has to buy more pencils than pens. Thus, in order to buy the minimum number of pencils, she has to buy one more package of pencils than pens. According to (1), we can say that Marsha has to buy combos of pencils + paper and pens + paper at a maximum price of £300 . A pencils + paper combo will cost £30, and a pens + paper combo will cost £51.50 (Pens are 10% off, so they cost £31.50 instead of £35.).
