Summary: MAT-117 Week #3 Discussion Question
Content Description: MAT-117 Week #3 Discussion Question Discussion Question 1 Post a response to the following: Take any number (except for 1). Square that number and then subtract one. Divide by one less than your original number. Now subtract your original number. Did you reached 1 for an answer? You should have. How does this number game work? (Hint: Redo the number game using a variable instead of an actual number and rewrite the problem as one rational expression). How did the number game use the skill of simplifying rational expressions? Create your own number game using the rules of algebra and post it for your classmates to solve. Be sure to think about values that may not work. State whether your number game uses the skill of simplifying rational expressions. Discussion Question 2 Post a response to the following: How is doing operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing) with rational expressions similar to or different from doing operations with fractions? Can understanding how to work with one kind of problem help understand how to work another type? When might you use this skill in real life?

Summary: MAT-117 Appendix E
Content Description: MAT-117 Appendix E Radicals 1. Many people know that the weight of an object varies on different planets, but did you know that the weight of an object on earth also varies according to the elevation of the object? In particular, the weight of an object follows this equation: , where C is a constant, and r is the distance that the object is from the center of the earth. a. Solve the equation w equals Cr exp (-2) for r. b. Suppose that an object is 100 pounds when it is at sea level. Find the value of C that makes the equation true. (Sea level is 3,963 miles from the center of the earth.) c. Use the value of C you found in the previous question to determine how much the object would weigh in -Death Valley (282 feet below sea level) -The top of Mt McKinley (20,320 feet above sea level) 2. The equation D equals 1.2 sqroot (h) gives the distance, D, in miles that a person can see to the horizon from a height, h, in feet. a. Solve this equation for h. b. Long’s Peak in the Rocky Mountain National Park, is 14,255 feet in elevation. How far can you see to the horizon from the top of Long’s Peak? Can you see Cheyenne, Wyoming (about 89 miles away)?

Summary: MAT-117 Appendix F
Content Description: MAT-117 Appendix F Ticket Sales Suppose you are an event coordinator for a large performance theater. One of the hottest new Broadway musicals has started to tour, and your city is the first stop on the tour. You need to supply information about projected ticket sales to the box office manager. The box office manager uses this information to anticipate staffing needs until the tickets sell out. You provide the manager with a quadratic equation that models the expected number of ticket sales for each day x. ( is the day tickets go on sale). Tickets equals (-.2x exp 2 plus 12x plus 11) a. Does the graph of this equation open up or down? How did you determine this b. Describe what happens to the tickets sales as time passes? c. Use the quadratic equation to determine the last day that tickets will be sold. (Note: Write your answer in terms of the number of days after ticket sales begin.) d. Will tickets peak or be at a low during the middle of the sale? How do you know? e. After how many days will the peak or low occur? f. How many tickets will be sold on the day when the peak or low occurs? g. What is the point of the vertex? How does this number relate to your answers in parts e and f? h. How many solutions are there in the above equation? How do you know? i. (b exp 2 greater than 4ac) and (144 greater than -88) What do the solutions represent? Is there a solution that does not make sense? If so, in what ways does the solution not make sense?
