1. (4 pts) Translate this sentence about area into a mathematical equation.

The area A of a regular pentagon is directly proportional to the square of the length s of its sides.

Direct proportionality is represented as y=kx where k is a constant. Therefore the sentence is translated as A=Ks2

But for a polygon, A=s2n/4tan(1800/n) where n=number of sides. Hence, A=s2*5/4tan(1800/5)

A=5s2/4tan(360)=[5/(4tan360)]s2

Therefore, for a regular pentagon, k=5/(4tan360)

(a)  State the y-intercept.

(0,4/9)

(b) State the x-intercept(s).

(-1,0), (1,0), and (4,0)

(c) State the vertical asymptote(s).

x=-3 and x=3

(d) State the horizontal asymptote.

y= 4

1. (8 pts) Solve the equation. Check all proposed solutions. Show work in solving and in checking, and state your final conclusion.

Simplifying the equation gives:[x(x+1)-6]/x(x-2) =0

x2+x-6=0

Using factorial method, x=3 and x=-2 gives the requisite factors.

Substituting in the equation gives: (x+3)(x-2)=0

Therefore: X=2 or x=-3

When x=2: (2)2+2-6=0

When x=-3: (-3)2-3-6=0

Conclusion: The function cuts through the x-axis at points -3 and 2 respectively. The x intercepts are (-3,0) and (2.0).

1. (8 pts) Which of the following functions is represented by the graph shown below? Explain your answer choice. Be sure to take the asymptotes into account in your explanation.

1. _D____

The graph represents function D.

from the equation, f(x)=3/(x2+4x). Simplifying gives: f(x)=3/[x(x+4)]

Thus, x=0 and x=-4

For vertical asymptotes of a function, the value of x in the denominator=0 but the numerator≠0. Thus asymptotes for the graph lie at x=0 and x=-4.

Since the solution for the function corresponds to the graphical representation, the graph manifests function D.

1. (8 pts) For z = 4  3i and w = 7  i, find z/w. That is, determine and simplify as much as possible, writing the result in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers. Show work.

=[(4-3i)(7+7)] / [(7-i)(7+i)]

=(28+4i-21i+3)/(49+7i-7i+1)

=(31-17i)/50

=31/50 + 17/50i

=0.62+0.34i

1. (8 pts) Consider the equation 5x2 + 20 = 16x. Find the complex solutions (real and non-real) of the equation, and simplify as much as possible. Show work.

Rearranging the equation gives: 5x2-16x+20=0

For quadratic equations, x= [-b ± √(b2-4ac)] /2a

x= [16 ± √((-16)2-4*5*20)] /2*5

x=[16 ± √(256-400)] /10

=[16 ± √-144] /10

=[16 ± √-1√144] /10

=[16±12i] /10

Therefore, the complex solutions are x=1.6+1.2i or x= 1.6-1.2i

1. (18 pts)

The cost, in dollars, for a company to produce x items is given by C(x) = 26 + 2x for x  0, and the price-demand function, in dollars per item, is p(x) = 30  2x for 0  x  15.

(a) Determine the profit function P(x);

P(x)=R(x)-C(x) where R(x) is the revenue function given by price-demand function times the number of units so;d

R(x)= p(x)*x = x(30-2x) = 30x-2x2

Profit function P(x)= 30x-2x2-( 26 + 2x) = -2x2+28x-26

Since it is a quadratic function, its graph is a parabola. Does the parabola open up or down?

The parabola opens down since the coefficient of x2 is negative

(b) Find the vertex of the profit function P(x) using algebra. Show algebraic work.

P(x)=y=-2x2+28x-26

but h=-b/2a= -28/(2*(-2))=7

P(-7)=k=-2*(7)2+(28*(7)-26=-98+196-26=72

The vertex (h,k)=(7, 72)

(c) State the maximum profit and the number of items which yield that maximum profit:

The maximum profit is _________\$ 72______  when ____7____  items are produced and sold.

(d) Determine the price to charge per item in order to maximize profit.

Price p(x)= 30 2x=30-(2*7)=\$16

(e) Find and interpret the break-even points. Show algebraic work.

At break-even point total cost=total Revenue

therefore, 26+2x=30x-2x2

2x2-30x+2x+26=0

2x2-28x+26=0

x2-14x+13=0

factors: x=-13 and x=-1

(x-13)(x-1)=0

The company breaks even when it produces either x=13 units or x=1 unit for which their production cost and the revenue collected are equal.
