2.In Andrew’s Furniture Shop, he assembles both bookcases and TV stands. Each type of furniture takes him about the same ...

s him about the same time to assemble. He figures he has time to make at most 18 pieces of furniture by this Saturday. The materials for each bookcase cost him $20.00 and the materials for each TV stand cost him $40.00. He has $600.00 to spend on materials. Andrew makes a profit of $60.00 on each bookcase and a profit of $100.00 for each TV stand. Find how many of each piece of furniture Andrew should make so that he maximizes his profit. Using the information in the problem, write the constraints. Let x represent number of bookcases, and y represent number of TV stands.

4.I am trying to figure out the optimal radius that will give the lowest surface area of a cylinder. I ...

have done the calculus which reveals that the surface area is at a minimum when height is double the radius. I am now trying to find an equation for the relationship between the amount of wasted surface area as a percentage of the minimum surface area and the ratio between height and radius. If I were to plot it on a graph, the y axis would be the percentage of excess materials needed as a percentage of the minimum possible surface area, and the x axis would be height divided by radius. Since the surface area is minimized when height=2(radius), I know that when x=2, y=0. The website explains what I am trying to do quite well and shows the graph below. I am trying to find the equation for this graph, but am unsure how to go about it.

6.Hello guys, I confess that I absolutely suck at math. Unfortunately my boss handed me what is basically a math ...

lly a math problem I gotta solve, and I have no idea how to do it cause of lack of my math skills. I am hoping someone can help me with this or I'm screwed. Co basically I've got this table in excel, where X (row) is a width and Y is a height (column) of a wooden sauna cabin, the X;Y is the price for a sauna with said dimensions. I need to find a relationship between the size of the sauna and the price And formulate ani equation. I can't seem to find it, the price seems to grow non linearly, I can't seem to find any coeficient. Again, I suck at math, maybe solution is simple, but I just don't see it. Can anyone help me please? Table Is at this link . Thanks for any help!

mand is 18,200 rolls. When the demand increases to 26,200 rolls, the supply is 20,000 and the price is $1.24 per roll. Let x be the quantity in thousands of rolls. The table below gives the price-supply and price-demand equations. Price Equations for Toilet Paper Type Equation Price-Supply P = -0.04x + 2.04 Price-Demand P = 0.025x + 1.495 QUESTION 1 Find the supply at a price of $2 per roll. 1000 rolls 10,000 rolls 1 roll 5000 rolls QUESTION 2 Find the demand at a price of $2 per roll. 20.2 rolls 202 rolls 20,200 rolls 500 rolls QUESTION 3 Use the substitution method to find the equilibrium quantity. Round x to the nearest tenth first and then convert to thousands. Include the units in your answer. QUESTION 4 What is the equilibrium price? Write the answer in dollars and cents, rounding to the nearest cent.
