Sue sold 26 more newspapers than bill, and bill sold three times as many as Harry. If Harry sold p newspapers, how many did Sue sell?

Let p =Harry's papers

Then 3p =Bill's papers (3 times the number Harry has)

Then 3p + 26 = Sue's papers (26 more than Bill)

The local ice cream shop is deciding whether or not to hire a new worker. The shop must pay the worker hourly and cover a daily cost for insurance. The cost to pay an hourly worker for one day is represented by the function y=10x+30 where x=hours. What is the slope and what does it represent?

Options:

1. 30; it represents the hourly wage for the worker
2. 30; it represents the cost for insurance
3. 10; it represents the hourly wage for the worker
4. 10; it represents the cost for insurance

The answer is the third option "10; it represents the hourly wage for the worker." 10 would be the slope and if x represents hours then 10 would represent the amount of money the worker would get every hour.

Hope this helps!

10

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that the local ice cream shop is deciding whether or not to hire a new worker. The shop must pay the worker hourly and cover a daily cost for insurance. The cost to pay an hourly worker for one day is represented by the function y=10x+30 where x=hours.

We find that this is of the form y = mx+B where

m=10 and B =30

Hence slope =m =10

and it represents the rate of change of y for a unit change in x.

What is the equation of a line that is parallel to −3x+4y=4 and passes through the point (4, 0) ?

-3x+4y=14
4y=3x+14
y=3/4x+7/2

Slope is 3/4: parallel lines have same slope

0=3/4(4)+b
0=3+b
-3=b

y = 3/4x - 3

A group of friends go to the movies. The function h(x) represents the amount of money spent where x is the number of friends at the movies. Does a possible solution of (6.5,\$95.25) make sense for this function?

No, the solution (6.5,\$ 95.25) do not make a sense.

Since, the number of people going for a movie can't be in decimals.

Step-by-step explanation:

The function h(x) represents the amount of money spent where x is the number of friends at the movies.

The domain of such a function has to be whole numbers.

Because the number of people that go for a movie must exist as a whole they can't exist in decimals.

( i.e. either no one will go.

1 will go.

2 friends will go and so  on)

i.e. the domain is the set of all non-negative integers.
