The steak and Chop Butcher Shop purchase steak from a local meatpacking house. The meat is purchased on Monday at $2.00 per pound, and the shop sells the steak for $3.00 per pound. Any steak left over at the end of the week is sold to a local zoo for $.50 per pound. The possible demands for steak and the probability of each are shown in the following table:

The shop must decide how much steak to order in a week. Construct a payoff table for this decision situation and determine the amount of steak that should be ordered, using expected value.

Purchase price= $2.00 per pound
Selling price for steak sold = $3.00 per pound
Price at which unsold steak is sold to the zoo= $0.50 per pound

Case I: Quantity ordered= 20 pounds

Purchase Amount= $40.00 =20 x $2.

Solution Summary

The solution arrives at a decision on how much steak to order by calculating a payoff table for each decision and arriving at the optimal decision.

For the second order reaction below, the initial concentration of A is 1.34M. If k=7.61x10(exponent negative 4) seconds(exponent negative 1), what is the concentration of A after 18.3 minutes?
2A-->B rate=k[A](exponent2)

If the overall reaction is the sum of the order of the reagents, and:
Zero order = changing concentration of the reactant does not affect the reaction rate.
First order = doubling the concentration of any reactant doubles the reaction rate
Second order = doubling the concentration of any reactant quadruples the reaction

The Complement A of an r-subset A of {1,2...,n} is the (n-r)-subset of {1,2,...,n} consisting of all those elements that do not belong to A. Let M= C(n,r), the number of r subsets and at the same time the number of (n-r)-subsets of {1,2...,n}. Prove that if A1,A2,A3...AM are the r subsets in lexigraphic order then complements Am

The Super Discount store (open 24 hours a day, every day) sells 8-packs of paper towels, at the rate of approximately 420 packs per week. Because the towels are so bulky, the annual cost to carry them in inventory is estimated at $.50 per pack. The cost to place an order for more is $20 and it takes four days for an order to arr

1. If x is an element of a group and x is of order n then the elements 1, x, x^2,...x^n-1 are distinct (don't know how to show this!)
2. Let Y= Y here is a group show
a) v^2=v^-1
b) v commutes with u^3
c) v commutes with u
d)uv=1
e)u=1, deduce that v=1 and conclude that Y=1

I do not understand how to conduct these equations I Excel so that I can show a graph of each. Choose a second-order/third-order (e.g., x2/x3) and a third-order/second-order (e.g., x3/x2) rational function. Provide a graph for the second-order rational function (e.g., x2), choosing x values in the range from -10 through +10.

I did the proof, but it's weak, since I can't find a way to argue why every odd order subgroup has to be a subgroup of the cyclic odd order subgroup K of index 2, and by the divisibility argument it still could be a subgroup of G and not to be contained entirely in K.
