    Section 2
    Question 58
    1/3x + 1/4 =1/6-x
    Answer
    Give equation is

    That is,
    That is,
    That is,
    That is, 16x - 24 = 18x - 3x2
    That is, 3x2 - 2x - 24 = 0
    =
    Question number 72
    5x = 15-2 (x + 7)
    Answer
    Given equation is, 5x = 15-2 (x + 7)
    That is, 5x = 15 - 2x - 14
    That is, 3x = 1
    Therefore, x = 1/3
    Section 2.3
    Question Number 32 (Word problem)
    There were 77 birds on the endanger species list in 2005. This is 7 more than 5 times the number of reptiles list. How many reptiles were on the endangered species list in 2005?
    Answer
    Let x be the number of reptiles list in 2005. Then the number of birds on the endanger species list is 5x + 7.
    Given that, 5x + 7 = 77
    That is, 5x = 70
    Therefore, x = 70/5 = 14
    Hence the number reptiles were on the endangered species list in 2005 = 14
    Question number 56 (Word problem)
    In 2000, about 457,000 people received a master's degree, and by 2005 this number had increased to 506,000. Find the percent change in the number of master's degrees received over this time period.
    Answer
    Number of people received a master's degree in 2000 = 457,000
    Number of people received a master's degree in 2005 = 506,000
    Increase in the number of people = 506,000 - 457,000 = 49,000
    Therefore, percent change in the number of master's degrees = (49,000/457,000) * 100
    = 10.72%
    Question Number 72 (Word problem)
    A pilot flies a plane at a constant speed for 5 hours and 30 minutes, traveling 715 miles. Find the speed of the plane in miles per hour.
    Answer
    Total miles travelled = 715 miles
    Total time of travel = 5 hours and 30 minutes = 5.5 hours
    Therefore, speed of the plane = 715/5.5 = 130 miles per hour
    Section 2.4
    Write the solution set to the inequality in interval notation.
    Question 30
    y >_ 1 (the top symbol is over the bottom).
    Answer
    The solution is, 1 ≤ y < ∞
    Question number 60
    3x >9
    Answer
    3x > 9
    That is, x > 9/3
    That is, x > 3
    That is, 3 < x < ∞ .
