y-10>2y-4 is 7 a solution?

2. write the set (xlx_>1) in interval notation
3. write interval notation for the set (xl-1>x>-3)
4. write interval notation for the given graph ( straight line graph shaded from -7 to 9
5. solve then graph. T+16_>5
6. solve: -7/2x_>-5/4
7. 6x+1<43
8. 0.6x+2<_1.0x-1
9. solve. 2/3(3x-6)>12

10. The body mass index, I, can be used to determine an individual's risk for heart disease. An index less than 25 indicates a low risk. The body mass index is gven by the formula, or model, I=700W/H^2, where W=weight, in pounds, and H=height, in inchese. Francis weighs 166 plbs and stand 75 inches tall. What is his approximate body mass index? Find an inequality describing all weights W that Francis can have and be in the low risk category.

11 .Bayside insurance offers two health plans. Under plan A, Giselle would have to pay the first \$60 fo her medical bills, plus 25% of the rest. Under plan B, Gisells would pay the first \$90 but only 20% of the rest. For what amount of the medical bills will plan B save Giselle Money? Assume she has over \$90 in bills

20.in order to achieve maximum results from aerobic exercise, one should maintain one's heart rate at a certain level. A 45 yr old woman with a resting heart rate of 70 beats per minute should keep her heart rate between 133 and 154 beats per minute while exercising. She checks her pulse for 10 sec while exercising. What shoul the number of beats be?
The number of beats in 10 sec should be between _ and _ beats
