Why don't you show everybody here your best effort to solve this question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
There is none . That's why I posted it here . So someone could help me through it .
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
You want to put NO effort in?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Such cruelty :( What if x represents the number of weeks that passed, does that help? ^.^
anonymous
  • anonymous
@skullpatrol I didn't say that nor did I imply that ?? I said I don't know how to do this . Therefore I need HELP .....
anonymous
  • anonymous
@PeterPan I know right ? Like excuse me if I don't know how to do it .....
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh, I was actually referring to Peter's parents... poor Peter :( But we should focus on the problem ^.^
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
It's not "cruel" to expect someone to show you what they have tried so far.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hey skullpatrol, look above your post ^.^
anonymous
  • anonymous
How can I try it if I don't even know what I'm doing ?? That's my point .....
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
How can you learn that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
By someone HELPING me ?!

And a cruel twisted world. This is grown-up tyranny! But anyway Layna, let's get to work ^.^ f(x) = ...

I seriously can't believe this guy right now . Anyway , for the people trying to HELP me , let's focus :)

let her walk on her own
anonymous
  • anonymous
He will? He's too busy not playing :( :D We want a function that tells you exactly how many hours Peter (that's weird >.>) has played given the number of weeks that has passed, since his parents made sure he only plays five hours for every week, ok? ^.^
anonymous
  • anonymous
Alright :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
So we need yo set up an equation or function or something , right ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep, he's already played ten hours, nothing we, or the number of weeks can do about that, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh and @skullpatrol , please leave since you are going to be of no assistance . Thanks
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right
anonymous
  • anonymous
So how do you represent that in your function?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ummm would that be that is equals 10 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Close, but no dice ^.^ f(x) = 10 If you notice, there's no x in this equation. That means the number of hours he's played would be 10, regardless of how many weeks has passed, and if Peter's the kind of boy I think he is, I don't think that's true, he's gonna make the most of the five hours he's allowed to play, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I suppose :o
anonymous
  • anonymous
Think about it, at the beginning of what I like to call the 'eight weeks of punishment' he's going to play five hours, so at the end of the FIRST week, how many hours would he have played?
anonymous
  • anonymous
10 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
But he's already played for ten hours from last week! `
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hold on . @skullpatrol I believe I asked you to leave
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Try using "t" to represent time.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Would, but the word problem says 'f(x)' It's just a crummy letter anyway ^.^ Now, Layna, 10 hours from last week, and 5 hours for the first week of the 8 of punishment. That adds up to...what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Good God I'm so confused ...
anonymous
  • anonymous
:3 10 and 5 make?
anonymous
  • anonymous
15 ._.
anonymous
  • anonymous
-girls...- haha just kidding! >:) Anyway, that means at the end of the first week, Peter would have played for 15 hours total, right? ^.^
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes yes yes ! I was confused about that statement but then I thought about it :p
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Have you thought about organizing the facts in a chart?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sorry it's too early for algebra . And @skullpatrol I don't need a chart I need complete sentences like the questions asks for .
anonymous
  • anonymous
What about by the end of week 2? How many hours would Pete have finished by then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Including the 15 , right ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well of course... Peter can't un-play the hours he's already played, LOL
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay well then he would have played 20 hours ? :o
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's right :) So what about after x weeks?
anonymous
  • anonymous
80 ? because that would be the end of the 8 weeks ? :o
anonymous
  • anonymous
I didn't say 8 weeks. I said x weeks. We don't know what x is exactly, but we do know how many hours Pete would have played at the end of x weeks.... in terms of x, that is ;)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sorry but I thought x weeks would be for the whole 8 weeks . -.- and okay

Week 0 being 'last week' \[\Large \left.\begin{matrix} week&0&1&2&3&4&5&6&7&8\\hours \ played &10&5&5&5&5&5&5&5&5\end{matrix}\right.\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Does this give you an idea?
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
@LaynaMae read the question carefully and compare it to @PeterPan 's chart :-)
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Remember the question is asking for "TOTAL" video time played which would be the SUM of the times in the chart up to that point, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You know what, let's forget about last week, we'll bring it in later. \[\Large \left.\begin{matrix} week&\cancel0&1&2&3&4&5&6&7&8\\hours \ played &\cancel{10}&5&5&5&5&5&5&5&5\end{matrix}\right.\]
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
@LaynaMae Are you still there?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Forgetting that Pete's played ten hours last week, how many hours will he have played, say, at the end of week 4? \[\Large \left.\begin{matrix} week&\cancel0&1&2&3&\boxed 4&5&6&7&8\\hours \ played &\cancel{10}&\color{blue}5&\color{blue}5&\color{blue}5&\color{blue}5&5&5&5&5\end{matrix}\right.\]
