Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have a question, here it goes, A butcher's scale is accurate to within 0.05 pound. A sirloin steak weights 1.14 pounds on this scale. Solve the inequality: lx1.14l<_0.05. What does the solution interval represent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x1.14 <_ 0.05 => (x1.14) <_ 0.05 or (x1.14) <_ 0.05 solve it up!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see what you now have is x + 1.14 <_ 0.05 => 1.14  0.05 <_ x => 1.09 <_ x or x<_ 0.051.14 => x<_ 1.09 because of the negative sign the inequality gets reversed, => x _> 1.09 get that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Review this problem very carefully as I think there may be an error. I come up with the answer: 1.09<x<1.19\[1.09\le x \le 1.19\] Rework it and see what you get.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look rthe other problem i need help in, it goes like this i have a question i don't quite understand, i am preparing for a exam. A 100gallon mixture of citrus extract and water is 3% citrus extract, and it needs to be diluted. The function f(x)=3/100+x represents the percentrage (in decimal form) of the miture that is citrus extract when x gallons of water are added. Find the domain of f(x). Then, find the percentage of citrus extract in the mixture after 50 gallons of water are added to it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't quite understand the function, but there is 100 gallons of mixture of which is 3% citrus or 3 gallons of citrus 97 gallons of water. It looks like they add 50 gallons of water (no more citrus) giving 150 gallolns of mixture of which only 3 gallons is citrus (since no more was added) So now the percerntage is 3/150 or only 2% citrus. Do you have the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It appears the domain of x could be the set of real numbers. What bothers me is the function seems to have a constant of .03 rather than attaining a 3 % mixture. It has been over 30 years since I had Calculus and I need to brush up on it. I am afraid I am not too much help to you at this time WorldBoy
