Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets start with 1315

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so lets saw for a member for 1 year he just pays 35 a NONmember will pay lets say 5 dollars every time he uses the gym let n the number of uses lets see at what number of uses the member = non member 35=5*n when n=7, 5*7=35 so a non member if he uses the gym 7 times he will pay the same as a guy who payed for a whole year, if he uses the gym more than 7 times he will have to pay more than the guy with a membership, if he uses the gym less than 7 times he will have to pay less Now for your question instead of 5 dollars every time he uses, they have a different number or some random number k

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I'm stumped. It seems like there's information missing in #13. How much does it cost per visit? It doesn't say.

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5is the problem cut off or something?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5@dan815 where did you get those values from?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it says that the cost of being a member of the frequent visitor program = the cost of not being a member

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just made it up for an example, instead of 5 i think ninja has to use a variable there

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is the number of visits per year

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5well I still think there's missing info, but anyway, let's say the cost per day is k dollars. The k is some unknown number if you visit n times for that year, then it costs k*n dollars

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5set that equal to the 5 dollar yearly fee to get k*n = 5

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I think they want you to solve for n

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5get n all by itself in the equation `k*n = 5`

anonymous

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do u divide 5 by k

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nvr mind how do u get n by itself

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5you just leave it like that, so you'd have \[\Large n = \frac{5}{k}\]

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5that's what you'd have after dividing both sides by k

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5if you knew the value of k (the number it represents), then you could replace k with that number and divide

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5but we don't know what k is so we leave it like 5/k

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5what does n represent

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5yes, so 5/k represents the number of visits (because it's equal to n)

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5if k = 1, then 5/k = 5/1 = 5 basically saying if the price per visit is $1, then you'd have to make 5 visits for the two costs to be equal

jim_thompson5910

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5to move that 3x over, you have to subtract 3x from both sides

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5you need the 3x on the right side to turn into 0x or 0 3x3x = 0x = 0

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am not sure if I know this sorry....

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh now i get it the 2nd step is distributive property, right?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5yeah because `2(x1)` turns into `2*x+2*(1)` which becomes `2x2`

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5same with the `3(x+2)`

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5what's the change from line 3 to line 4?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they are trying to get the variable alone

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5yeah that's the ultimate goal

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5focus just on line 3 and line 4 what changes?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they are adding 4x to both sides

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5they are using the additive property of equality

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5additive property of equality if a=b, then a+c = b+c

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5so you combined like terms

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5same for 4x+4x = 0x = 0

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let me guess: the next line is additive property of equality, right?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5why would it be that rule?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because they are adding 8 to both sides. Am I right?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I'll be right back.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the next line is combine like terms

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5`the next line is combine like terms` correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the next line is division property of equality, right?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5give a guess what w represents

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5w = walking w is the time spent walking

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5so w1 is the time spent biking (1 hour less)

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5if you walk for w hours, and you walk at a speed of 4 mph, then how far do you walk?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5yep, how far do you go when you bike?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5not just w though

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5the 12(w1) like you wrote

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.512 times (w1)

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i was right the second time

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5so the two distances add to get `4w+12(w1)`

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5that's how he got that left side

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we find the value of w, right?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5yeah for part b

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5w = 3 is correct

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5so he walked for 3 hrs and biked for 2 hrs (since w1 = 31 = 2)

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how did he walk 3 hrs though?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5you just solved to get w = 3

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5w represented the number of hours walked
