1)A lumber yard has fixed costs of \$1463.00 a day and variable costs of \$1.00 per boardfootproduced. The company gets \$2.40 per board-foot sold. How many board-feet mustbe produced daily to break even?

2)Use the echelon method to solve the system of three equations in three unknowns.
2x + 4y + z = 22
4x - 4y - z = 2
4x + y + 4z = 12

3)Solve the system of equations. Let z be the parameter.
7x + 3y + 5z = 0
3x + y + 2z = 0

4)Use the Gauss-Jordan method to solve the system of equations.
5x - y + z = 8
7x + y + z = 6
12x + 2z = 14

8) If n(A) = 25, n(A u B) = 73, and n(A &#8745; B) = 21; what is n(B)

9) Find the future value of the ordinary annuity. Interest is compounded annually, unless
