MATH 536 XMAS EXAM |
Do as many questions as you can.
You may not have covered all the material on this exam since
different schools teach the course in a different order.
1) | 2x - 11 | = 13 becomes | 2x - 11 = -13 2x = -2 , so x = -1 |
2x - 11 = 13 2x = 24 , so x = 12 answer is B x = 12 and x = -1 |
.
2) A) vertex (4, 3) range = ] - º, 3 ]
.
3 ) The value of 2 ß-10.1à is D) -22
.
4) For no profit, no loss, P(x) must = 0.
We set 25x - 75 = 0 .
answer is C) x = 3 hrs.
.
5 ) g [ f (x) ] = g ( 2x + 1) = ( 2x + 1)² - ( 2x + 1) - 2
answer is A) 4x² + 2x - 2
.
6 ) D) has a range of [ 3, º [ ?
.
7) Using 4 as a common base:
(4 ² ) ^{2x - 1} = (4 ³ ) ^{x} t (4 ) ^{4x - 2} = (4) ^{3x} so 4x - 2 = 3x, answer is D) x = 2
.
8 ) Using standard form for the rule of an absolute value function:
f (x) = a | x - h | + k t f (x) = a | x + 5 | + 7
Substitute (2, 0) for x and f (x) to get
0 = a | 2 + 5 | + 7 so a = -1
f (x) = -| x + 5 | + 7
.
9) Vertical separation = a = 5 horizontal length = 1/ b = 10.
.
10)
.
11) For the zero, set the numerator = 0 to get x = - 5/2
For the y-intercept, set x = 0 to get f (0) = 5.
.
12) If g(x) = 2x - 7 and h(x) = 2x^{ 2} - x - 21, find
.
13) We can see from the location of the vertex and point that b = +1
since the curve moves right from the vertex to reach (0, -3).
Using standard form for the rule of a square root function:
Substitute (0, -3) for x and f (x) to get
.
14) We substitute (0, 4.5) to get 4.5 = ac^{ 0} + 4 which means a = 0.5
Now we substitute (1, 5.2) to find c.
5.2 = 0.5c^{ 1} + 4 which gives us c = 2.4
the function is f(x) = 0.5(2.4)^{ x} + 4.
.
15) P(x) = 1.25 | x - 5 | + 45
x is the number of months since he bought the stock, x ` [0, 13]
P(x) is the price of the stock in dollars.
.
16) .
a) vertex = (-2, -12) | b) zero = (-11, 0) | c) domain ] - º, -2] | d) positive when x > -11 |
.
17) Find the equations of the asymptotes and sketch the graph of
.
.
18) He starts at 250 questions and reduces that number by 25/week
a) a = - 25; b = 1 ; h = 0 and k = 250
So, f(t) = - 25 [ t ] + 250 ; t ` Z; t in weeks
b)
.
19) a) set x = 1 to get T(1) = 5000 (1.1)^{ 1} = 5500.
b) T(5) = 5000 (1.1)^{ 5} = 8052.55 and T(3) = 5000 (1.1)^{ 3} = 6655
so the difference is $1397.55
c) We're finding the amount of money accumulated after 13 years.
d) domain: [0, 20] and range: [$5000, $33,637.50] (the maximum value is T(20).)
.
20) 2x - y m 4 u y m 2x -4 and 2y + 3x [ - 6 u y [ -3/2 x - 3.
We draw the graphs of y m 2x -4 and y [ -3/2 x - 3
the solution is the set of all points in the
plane with the blue line as ceiling and the red line as floor.
The x-values that generate the solution are x [ 2/7 which is the x-value
for the point of intersection.
.
21) If we join AB, it is a diameter since the angle = 90°.
This means that AB, the hypotenuse = 2x since diameter = 2 (radius).
By the Pythagorean theorem, AB = 13.89, so x = ½(13.89) = 6.95 or C
.
22) using the exterior angle property that É P = ½ (arc AC - arc BD) we get
22º= ½ (50º- x) u 44° = 50º- x u x = 6º
.
23) Use the proportion C : 10 = 360° : 22° to get C = 163.64 cm.
.
24) First we find AC = 50 m -- it's the 3, 4, 5 triangle
now we use the product of the sides theorem which states h(AC) = AT (CT).
Using this statement we know that h(50) = 30 (40) u h = 24 m.
.
25) We need to find the distance between the zeros.
Set -1/2 x^{2 }+ 2x + 160 = 0 then multiply through by -2.
We get x^{2 }- 4x - 320 = 0 which factors as (x - 20)(x + 16) = 0
So the zeros are at x = - 16 and x = 20.
The distance between them is 36 cm.
.
26)
Vertex (-10, 5) minimizes M = 2x + y .
.
27)
5) let x = # of bottles | y = # of cans | |
The inequalities are: x > 0, y > 0 x + y [ 60 x m 2y y m 10, x [ 45 |
we want max profit: P = 0.10x + 0.05y | |
graph the lines and test the coordinates of the vertices. | profit max = $5.25 with 45 bottles, 15 cans |
.
28) Arc AC = 30° (arc double angle at circumference.)
Now we use the interior angle property to find arc BD.
We solve 80° = ½(30° + BD) which makes the degree measure of BD = 130°.
Since C = od, C = 10o.
So the length of arc BD is
