can we use the ceiling function? because if 61 students go, then two busses are need right?
i can't remember the notation...
Im not 100% sure if thats what its called, but i read it somewhere
yeah. that's what i meant to say also...
greatest integer function... that's what it's called.
C = [[n/60]] * 350
that would be your cost function...
no, like those steps... because cost to pay for bus and driver is only going to be multiples of 350 dollars right? and nothing in between.
if 61 students plan to go, they'll have to pay for 2 busses or are they going to say to that extra person, "sorry kid, you can't go"
|dw:1333142182427:dw| if 50 students go, 1 bus ($350) if 51 students go, 1 bus (350) ... if 60 students go, 1 bus (350) if 61 students go, 2 busses (700) if 62 students go, 2 busses (700) ...
|dw:1333142447006:dw| notice the filled in dots as opposed to the open circle dots....
do you have a graphing calculator?
go to "y=" and press "math" --- "num" ---"5: int("
type "x" --- " ) " --- [enter] this is the integer function that will be graphed.
yep. but that's the graph of y = [[x]]. for this problem, you'll have to enter it as y = [[x/60]] * 350 then you'll have to change the window settings for the x and y.
Yeah. Thats what i input. THanks!!
good job... :)
@shadowfiend what to do with those who edit the question in order to erase it?
That's completely unacceptable. For now, a conversation followed by warnings and suspensions. Soon we'll also have the ability to see the contents of the original question during an edit, and restore it. @kk1022 Do NOT clear out your questions and leave the replies completely without context. You may edit your questions ONLY for clarification purposes. Further actions like this will result in an official warning, followed by moderator action.
