Business Math : Revenue and Total Cost

The Revenue and Total Cost eqations for a glove company are R(x)=35x and C(x)=0.25x^2 + 30.5x + 10, where x is in hundreds of gloves and R(x) and C(x) are in thousands of dollars. What is the Revenue and production Cost for 700 gloves, the profit for this problem, the number of gloves that will produce the maximum profit, the

Solving Inequality Functions

Solve: -4 (x+6) < -4 -4x Is the answer, x< -10; x> -10; all real numbers or no solution? Please show step by step how to solve the inequality. Also, I came up with "x<0" but I do not know if this means "no solution" or "all real numbers" Can you please explain step by step h

Algorithms : Finding integer values of x and y

A store offers 2 models of scooter, a $29 model and a $33 one. An order was placed with a warehouse which totalled $2490 but the details had been lost. Can you tell the order clerk howl many of each model to send to the store? I have been applying algorithm to equations and am trying to solve integer values for this problem.

Congruence Functions Solved

Solve the congruence 42x 12 (mod 90). Problem: Solve the congruence 42x 12 (mod 90). Solution: We have gcd (42, 90) = 6, so by Theorem Given below, there is a solution since 6 is a factor of 12. The congruence ax b (mod n) has a solution if and only if b is divisible by d, where d = (a, n). If d | b, then there a

Proof of the Irrationality using Euler's phi-function

2. Apply the proof of the irrationality of sqrt(2) to a) sqrt(3) and b) sqrt(4). If the proof breaks down, indicate precisely why. 3. Euler's phi-function is defined such that for n > 0, phi(n) = |{m < n: gcd(m,n)=1}|. So, e.g., phi(4) = |{1,3}| = 2; phi(5) = |{1,2,3,4}| = 4. a. Show that for prime p, phi(p) = p-1.
