I have a problem where I need to figure out how many pounds of fruit an 18 ft & a 20 tree will bear. Here is the formula: p24=31/11(h5). For the life of me I am stuck and can't figure it out. Please help and show me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you not just plug in 18 for the height and solve for p?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is the formula p24 = 31/(11(h5))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I used the formula I just put and got 24.94 pounds for the 18 ft tree and 24.56 pounds for the 20 ft tree.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no Here is the ordered pair (5,24) & (16,55) then I did 5524/165 = 31/11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the equation came to p24=31/11(h5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am suppose to take that equation and predict the # of lbs of fruit a 18 & a 20 ft tree will produce

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dang. I left the page and when I went back the problem was gone so now I will have to do a different one. Sorry I will have to post a different problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh you are trying to find the equation of the line? y = mx +b m = (5524)/(165) = 31/11 y = 31/11(x  5) + 24 for x=18 y = (31/11)*3+24 = 32.45 for x = 20 y = (31/11)*5+24 = 38.09

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you line equation was incorrect. Use pointslope form. \[y = m(x x _{1})+ y_{1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is not the formula they are using. They are using m= p2p1/h2h1=

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah that is the slope equation. Mine is the slope equation too...just rearranged.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i was just following the examples they give

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can rearrange yours to do the same thing: p2  p1 = m(h2h1) p2 = m(h2h1) + p1

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where h2 and p2 would be your variables

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and h1 and p1 would be a known point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok the new formula, since I had to change problems, is p18=20/3(h6)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0p1 & p2 = 18 & 58 and h1 & h2 = 6 & 12 respectively

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do I simplify that equation?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so I am substituting 18 for h

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so p = (20/3)*(186) + 18 p = (20/3)*12 + 18 = 98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That looks like an easier formula to use

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so that is the first answer. What is the other height value?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah it is the same as the one they are giving you. It is just rearranged algebraically.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you. To mee it looks easier to use as long as I remember to do the ( ) first.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so use the same formula. Tell me what you get.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it said the 132 was wrong

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0132 was wrong. Remember we said the answer was 98. 132 was the answer you got when you didn't do the () first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0334/3 is the right answer for the height of 20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok forgot to write that down. i will try again

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok 98 was right sorry did I get ur heart going?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Haha. No I was pretty sure that 98 was right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but it says to round it to the nearest whole nmuber

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok then the answer would be 111

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0334/3 = 111.33 which is approximated to 111 when rounding to the nearest whole number

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep right i just though about that too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok last thing. i need to predict the height of a tree that produces 88 lbs. can you tell me how to flip the formula around to solve for that?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the formula we were using was: p = (20/3)*(h6) + 18 subtract 18 from each side p18 = (20/3)*(h6) divide each side by (20/3) this is the same as multiplying by 3/20 (3/20)*(p18) = h6 now add 6 to each side our new equation is h = (3/20)*(p18) + 6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so plug in 88 and tell me what you get

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya that is what I got

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0rounded to the nearest whole number is 17

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is telling me to round to the nearest tenth

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then the answer is 16.5

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right. THANK YOU very much. I got another one similiar which i will do and see how it turn out.
