A car rental company offers two plans for renting a car.

Plan A: $25 per day and$0.10 per mile

Plan B: $40 per day with free unlimited mileage How many miles would you need to drive for plan B to save you money? Find the area of a triangle bounded by the y axis, the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}f\left(x\right)=12-4x,$ and the line perpendicular to $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}f\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ that passes through the origin. 16.94 square units A town’s population increases at a constant rate. In 2010 the population was 65,000. By 2012 the population had increased to 90,000. Assuming this trend continues, predict the population in 2018. The number of people afflicted with the common cold in the winter months dropped steadily by 25 each year since 2002 until 2012. In 2002, 8,040 people were inflicted. Find the linear function that models the number of people afflicted with the common cold $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}C\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ as a function of the year, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ When will less than 6,000 people be afflicted? 2083 For the following exercises, use the graph in [link] , showing the profit, $y,$ in thousands of dollars, of a company in a given year, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x,$ where $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ represents years since 1980.

In 2004, a school population was 1250. By 2012 the population had dropped to 875. Assume the population is changing linearly.

1. How much did the population drop between the year 2004 and 2012?
2. What is the average population decline per year?
3. Find an equation for the population, P , of the school t years after 2004.

Draw a scatter plot for the data provided in [link] . Then determine whether the data appears to be linearly related.

Draw a best-fit line for the plotted data.

For the following exercises, use [link] , which shows the percent of unemployed persons 25 years or older who are college graduates in a particular city, by year.

 Year 2000 2002 2005 2007 2010 Percent Graduates 8.5 8 7.2 6.7 6.4

Determine whether the trend appears linear. If so, and assuming the trend continues, find a linear regression model to predict the percent of unemployed in a given year to three decimal places.

$y=-0.219x+445.990$

In what year will the percentage drop below 4%?

Based on the set of data given in [link] , calculate the regression line using a calculator or other technology tool, and determine the correlation coefficient. Round to three decimal places of accuracy.

For the following exercises, consider this scenario: The population of a city increased steadily over a ten-year span. The following ordered pairs shows the population (in hundreds) and the year over the ten-year span, (population, year) for specific recorded years:

$\left(4,500,2000\right);\left(4,700,2001\right);\left(5,200,2003\right);\left(5,800,2006\right)$

Use linear regression to determine a function y , where the year depends on the population. Round to three decimal places of accuracy.

hi
Grace
what sup friend
John
not much For functions, there are two conditions for a function to be the inverse function:   1--- g(f(x)) = x for all x in the domain of f     2---f(g(x)) = x for all x in the domain of g Notice in both cases you will get back to the  element that you started with, namely, x.
