The regular admission price for an amusement park is $72. For a group of 15, or more, the admission price is reduce by $25 per person. How many people need to be in a group to save $500?


Answer 1
Answer:  20 people



x = number of people

Without the discount, each person pays $72, so the total cost is 72x dollars if x people go through the gate individually.

Now applying the group discount, those x people pay 72-25 = 47 dollars each. Meaning the total cost is now 47x. Keep in mind that [tex]x \ge 15[/tex] in order for the discount to kick in.

Subtracting the two amounts leads to 72x-47x = 25x. It is not a coincidence that we get a coefficient of 25 here.

Set this equal to 500 and solve for x

25x = 500

x = 500/25

x = 20


If x = 20 people attend individually, then they pay 72*x = 72*20 = 1440 dollars.

If 20 people go as one group, they pay 47x = 47*20 = 940 dollars

We have a savings of 1440-940 = 500 dollars. This confirms the answer.

All 20 people must go as one group if they want to save $500.

Think of a problem that you may be interested in that deals with a comparison of two population means. Propose either a confidence interval or a hypothesis test question that compares these two means. Gather appropriate data and post your problem (without a solution) in the discussion topic. Later, respond to your own post with the solution for others to check their work. For example, you may want to know if the average weight of a rippled potato chip is the same as the average weight of a non-rippled potato chip. You may weigh rippled regular potato chips fro m a large bag and find weights of 1.7,1.9,2.4,1.3, 1.7, and 2.0 grams. You may weigh non-rippled potato chips from another larg bag and find weights of 1.8, 1.6,1.9, 1.9, and 1.4 grams. Assume a random sample was drawn. Think of a problem that you may be interested in that deals with a comparison of two population proportions. Propose either a confidence interval or a hypothesis test question that compares these two proportions. Gather appropriate data and post your problem (without a solution) in the discussion topic. Later, respond to your own post with your own solution. For example, you may believe that the proportion of adults in California who are vegetarians is more than the proportion of adults in New Hampshire who are vegetarians. In two independent polls, you may find that 109 out of 380 California residents are vegetarians and 39 out of 205 New Hampshire residents are vegetarians. For your response to a classmate (two responses required, one in each option), solve your classmate's confidence interval or hypothesis test problem, using a significance level not previously used Make sure that you use appropriate terminology and specify whether you are using the classical method or the p-value method.

Decision rule

 Fail to reject the null hypothesis


There is no sufficient evidence to conclude that the proportion of residents in California who are vegetarians is higher than the proportion in New Hampshire who are vegetarian  

Step-by-step explanation:

Here we are going to consider this question

For example, you may believe that the proportion of adults in California who are vegetarians is more than the proportion of adults in New Hampshire who are vegetarians. In two independent polls, you may find that 109 out of 380 California residents are vegetarians and 39 out of 205 New Hampshire residents are vegetarians.

Here we are going to be solving the hypothesis test problem and we will be making use of the p-value method

From the question the we are told that

     The first sample size is  [tex]n_1 = 380[/tex]

       The second sample size is [tex]n_2 = 205[/tex]

       The number of California residents that are vegetarian is [tex]k = 109[/tex]

       The number of New Hampshire resident that are veterinarian is [tex]u = 39[/tex]

Generally the sample proportion for California residents is

      [tex]\^ p_1 = \frac{k}{n_1}[/tex]

=> [tex]\^ p_1 =\frac{109}{380}[/tex]

=> [tex]\^ p_1 =  0.2868 [/tex]

Generally the sample proportion for New Hampshire residents is

     [tex]\^ p_2 = \frac{39}{205}[/tex]

=>  [tex]\^ p_2 = 0.1902 [/tex]  

The null hypothesis is  [tex]H_o  :  p_1 -p_2 = 0[/tex]

The alternative hypothesis is  [tex]H_a :  p_1 -p_2 > 0[/tex]

 Generally the test statistics is mathematically represented  as

[tex]t  =  \frac{(\^ p_1 - \^ p_2 ) -0}{\sqrt{ \frac{\^ p_1 (1-\^p_1 )}{n_1}  + \frac{\^ p_2 (1- \^p_2)}{n_2} } }[/tex]

=> [tex]t  =  \frac{( 0.2868 - 0.1902) -0}{\sqrt{ \frac{0.2868 (1-0.2868 )}{380}  + \frac{0.1902(1- 0.1902)}{205} } }[/tex]  

=>  [tex]t  =  0.036[/tex]

Generally the degree of freedom is mathematically represented as

      [tex]df  =  n_1 + n_2 -2[/tex]

=>    [tex]df  =  380 + 205 -2[/tex]

=>    [tex]df  =  583/tex]

Generally the probability of  [tex]t  =  0.036[/tex] at a degree of freedom of   [tex]df  =  583/tex]  from the t- distribution table is  

      [tex]p-value  =  P(t >  0.036) =  0.48564732[/tex]

Let take the level of significance to be [tex]\alpha = 0.05[/tex]

So from the values obtained we see that  [tex]p-value  >  \alpha[/tex] hence the decision rule is  

   Fail to reject the null hypothesis

The conclusion is

  There is no sufficient evidence to conclude that the proportion of residents in California who are vegetarians is higher than the proportion in New Hampshire who are vegetarian

a stone which is dropped into a dry well hits the bottom in 2.2s how deep is the well. take g=10m/s​




Step-by-step explanation:

Given parameters:

       Time taken = 2.2s

     Acceleration due to gravity = 10m/s


Depth of the well  = ?


To solve this problem, we simply apply one of the motion equations;

        S = ut + [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex] gt²

    where S = depth of the well

                u = initial velocity

                t = time taken

               g = acceleration due to gravity

 Input the parameters and solve for S;

   Note initial velocity = 0;

     S = [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex] x 9.8 x 2.2²

    S = 23.7m

Why are rotations a rigid motion?



RC,\α is a rigid motion.

Here C, is the rotacenter which is the fixed point and around C all other points move in a fixed distance by the definition of rotation.

the motion follows in a circularmanner with C as the center.

consider a point Q which changes to Q1 after rotation by an angle\alpha

Step-by-step explanation:

When considering rotational motion and subsequently rotational mechanics every point on the body must have same angular velocity and angular acceleration. If the body is not rigid different points on the body will have different angular velocity and angular acceleration.

lines A and B are parallel lines find the measures of angle 1​




Step-by-step explanation:

alternate angles are equal

see attached

The measure of ∠1 is 33° .

What is alternate interior angles?

When two parallel lines are crossed by a transversal, the pair of angles formed on the inner side of the parallel lines, but on the opposite sides of the transversal are called alternate interior angles. These angles are always equal.

According to the question

As given , lines A and B are parallel lines

therefore ,

∠1 = 33°  

∠3 = 57°

they are between parallel line and opposite of transversal line

So, they are alternate interior angles and are equal .

Hence, The measure of ∠1 is 33°  .

Answer: Total cost for 1 ride = $11. Total cost for 2 rides = $14. Total cost for 3 rides = $17. Total cost for 4 rides = $20. Total cost for 5 rides = $23

Step-by-step explanation:

The weekly demand function for x units of a product sold by only one firm is
p = 800 − 0.5x dollars, and the average cost of production and sale is C(with a line on top) = 300 + 2x dollars.

(a) Find the quantity that will maximize profit.

(b) Find the selling price at this optimal quantity.

(c) What is the maximum profit?



a) x = 798   is the quantity that maximizes the profit

b)po(x) = 401 $/unit

c)P(max ) = 636105 $

Step-by-step explanation:

The weekly demand function is equal to the price by unit and the Revenue function is weekly demand times quantity of units then:

R(x) = p(x) * x

R(x) = ( 800 - 0,5*x ) * x

R(x) = 800*x - 0,5*x²

The equation for the profit is:

P(x) = R(x) - C(x)

P(x) = 800*x - 0,5*x² - ( 300 + 2*x)

P(x) = 798*x - 0,5*x² - 300

a) P(x) = 798*x - 0,5*x² - 300

Taking derivatives on both sides of the equation:

P´(x) = 798 - x

If P´(x) = 0     then    798 - x = 0

x = 798   is the quantity that maximizes the profit

b) Selling price for the optimal quantity is:

p(x) = 800 - 0,5*x

p(x) = 800 - 0,5* 798

po (x) = 800 - 399

po(x) = 401 $/unit

c) Pmax = ?

P(x) = 798*x - 0,5*x² - 300    by subtitution of  x = 798

P(max) = 636804 - 399 - 300

P(max ) = 636105 $

a) The quantity that will maximize profit is [tex]100 \ units[/tex].

b) The selling of at this optimal quantity is [tex]\[/tex][tex]750[/tex] per unit.

c) So, the maximum profit is [tex]\[/tex][tex]25000[/tex].

Demand Function:

A demand function is a mathematical equation that expresses the demand for a product or service as a function of its price and other factors such as the prices of the substitutes and complementary goods, income, etc.

The given demand function,


So, the revenue function is,


[tex]\Rightarrow[/tex]Average cost is


So, the total cost function is,

[tex]C\left ( x \right )=\bar{C}.x \\ C\left ( x \right )=300x+2x^{2}[/tex]

a) Profit function:

[tex]P\left ( x \right )=R\left ( x \right )-C\left ( x \right ) \\ =800x-\frac{1}{2}x^{2}-300x-2x^{2} \\ P\left ( x \right )=500x-\frac{5}{2}x^{2}[/tex]

For maximum,

[tex]{P}'\left ( x \right )=0 \\ 500\left ( 1 \right )-\frac{5}{2}\left ( 2x \right )=0 \\ 500-5x=0 \\ x=100[/tex]

b) Selling Price:

[tex]P=800-\frac{1}{2}x \\ at \ x=100 \\ P=800-\frac{1}{2}\left ( 100 \right ) \\ =\$ 750[/tex]

c) Maximum Profit:

[tex]P\left ( x \right )=500x-\frac{5}{2}x^{2} \\ P\left ( 100 \right )=500\left ( 100 \right )-\frac{5}{2}\left ( 100 \right )^{2} \\ P\left ( 100 \right )=\$ 25000[/tex]

Antoine bikes for 16B miles before starting his walk.

Step-by-step explanation:

16 is that speed which is covered in B hours by bike by Antoine

What is speed?

Speed is defined as The rate of change of position of an object in any direction. Speed is measured as the ratio of distance to the time in which the distance was covered. Speed is a scalar quantity as it has only direction and no magnitude.

Speed = [tex]\frac{distance}{time}[/tex]


16B+3.5W = 22 an equation in which B is time covered by bike and W is time covered by walk

Antoine travels partially by bike and partially by walk, and total covered 22

That means 16B is the distance covered by bike, and 16 is its speed.

Hence, 16 is that speed which is covered in B hours by bike.
