Start by plotting the data. Then find the
regression lines for the data.
Women:
W (t ) = 0.14t + 4.52
Men:
The solution is roughly (3.33,1.33) .
23. a.
In 2002, t = 32 .
W (32 ) = в€’0.19 (32 ) + 43.73
M (t ) = 0.083t + 4.60
= 37.65
M (32 ) = в€’0.16 (32 ) + 39.90
b.
= 34.78
The womenвЂ™s time is 37.65 seconds and the
menвЂ™s time is 34.78 seconds. The error for
the womenвЂ™s time estimate is 0.275 seconds
and the error for the menвЂ™s time estimate is
0.165 seconds.
b.
c.
The enrollment for men and women were
equal in 1971 with roughly 4.72 million
each.
The absolute value of the slope of W is more
than the absolute value of the slope of M.
This shows that the winning times of women
decrease at a greater rate than the winning
times of men.
c.
In 2009, t = 39.
W (39 ) = 0.14 (39 ) + 4.52
= 9.98
M (39 ) = 0.083 (39 ) + 4.60
Since the winning time for women is
decreasing at a faster rate than for men, the
winning time for men may equal the
winning time for women in an upcoming
year since these times are only a few
seconds apart in the year 2002 and they are
getting closer as each year passes.
= 7.837
The total enrollment will be roughly
9.98 + 7.837 = 17.817 million students.

(0,30 ) . Therefore, f ( x ) = в€’3x + 30 . The slope
of g ( x ) is 5 and the g-intercept is (0, 2 ) .

49. The student is not correct. A system is
inconsistent (i.e. the solution set is the empty set)
when the lines are parallel. Parallel lines must
have the same slope. The slopes are different yet
they are close enough to where the lines look
parallel around the origin. To find the correct
solution, substitute 2 x + 3 for y in y = 2.01x + 1
and solve for x.
2 x + 3 = 2.01x + 1

order to predict when the family will be able to
pay a 10% down payment on an average-priced

y = 0.1( P (t )) = 0.1(8000t + 214000 )
of a home in a community and S (t ) represent
the amount of money (in dollars) a family has
saved at t years since 2000. Since the average
price of a home increases at a constant \$8000 per
year, the function P is linear and its slope is
8000. the P-intercept is (0, 214000 ) since the
y = S (t ) = 3600t + 10000
Substitute 0.1(8000t + 214000 ) for y in the
second equation and solve for t.
0.1(8000t + 214000 ) = 3600t + 10000
price of a home is \$214,000 in year t = 0 . So, an
equation for P is : P (t ) = 8000t + 214000 .
800t + 21400 = 3600t + 10000
Similar work in finding the equation for the
function S gives: S (t ) = 3600t + 10000 . (The
slope of S is 3600 since the family plans to save
\$300 each month which is \$3600 each year.) In

Men will have a longer average life

b.
The y-intercept represents the average
life expectancy for 1980. Since this
value is larger for women than men, she
should marry a younger man.
From part a., any number less than
12
is
7
not a solution.
41. We have mx < c and x > 2 . This implies that m
must be negative so that dividing both sides by m
produces:
mx < c
The average life expectancy for a
woman born in 1980 is 77.58 years. She
wants to marry a younger man, but each
year later decreases her average life
expectancy. So, t years after 1980, the
average life expectancy of a born in
1980 is 77.58 в€’ t . This value needs to
be less than or equal to the life
expectancy of the man she will marry.
Thus, we have

f ( x ) = g ( x ) when x = в€’2 .
35. The graph of f ( x ) is above the graph of g ( x )
Since the average price of a home increases at a
constant \$9000 per year, the function P is linear
and its slope is 9000. the P-intercept is
(0, 250000) since the price of a home is

f ( x ) > g ( x ) when x > в€’2 .

Since U-HaulвЂ™s charg e increases at a
constant rate of \$0.69 per mile, the equation
is linear with slope 0.69 . The U-intercept is

\$29.95. An equation for U-HaulвЂ™s charge is:
U ( x ) = 0.69 x + 29.95 .
After similar work for Rent A Wreck, an

In order to predict when the family will be able

when
y = 0.1( P (t )) = 0.1(9000t + 250000 )
y = S (t ) = 4800t + 12000
Substitute 0.1(9000t + 250000 ) for y in the
U (x) = R (x)
second equation and solve for t.
0.1(9000t + 250000 ) = 4800t + 12000
0.69 x + 29.95 = 0.22 x + 75
0.69 x + 29.95 в€’ 29.95 = 0.22 x + 75 в€’ 29.95

Solve the system

Solve using substitution.
Substitute 21.14t + 100.00 for y in the

y = в€’15.63t + 220.68
North America:
21.14t + 100.00 = в€’15.63t + 220.68
n (t ) = 0.52t + 35.04

Answers may vary. From part a., any
number greater than or equal to 2 does not
satisfy the inequality.
In the year 2000, t = 100 . Compare A (100 )
and B (100 ) .
A (100 ) = в€’0.12 (100 ) + 31.75
= 19.75
B (100 ) = 0.08 (100 ) + 9.43
= 17.43
Since 19.75 в€’ 17.43 = 2.32 , College A had
an enrollment of 2320 more than College B.
b.
The slopes of A and B are в€’0.12 and 0.08 ,
respectively. The enrollment at college A is
decreasing by 120 students per year while
the enrollment at college B is increasing by
80 students per year.
c.
Solve for t when A (t ) = B (t ) .
в€’0.12t + 31.75 = 0.08t + 9.43

f (5 ) = 3
14. g ( x ) = 3 when x = в€’4 .
15.
Solve the inequality for x.
3 x в€’ 11 < 7 в€’ 6 x
в€’0.12t + 31.75 в€’ 31.75 = 0.08t + 9.43 в€’ 31.75
в€’0.12t = 0.08t в€’ 22.32
f ( x ) = g ( x ) when x = 2 .
в€’0.12t в€’ 0.08t = 0.08t в€’ 22.32 в€’ 0.08t
в€’0.2t = в€’22.32
t = 111.6
16. The graph of f is below the graph of g for x < 2
and the two graphs are the same for x = 2 .
Therefore, f ( x ) в‰¤ g ( x ) when x в‰¤ 2 .
According to the models, the colleges will
have the same enrollment in the year 2012
( t = 112 ).
17. The graph of f is lower than the graph of g for all
values of x that are greater than 13. Thus,
f ( x ) < g ( x ) for x > 13 .

The slope for the two-year colleges is larger
than for the four-year colleges. This means
that the number of two-year colleges is
growing at a faster rate. However, the slopes
are not very different so it will take many
years for the number of two-year colleges to
overcome the difference in numbers.

The slope is в€’12 since the number hit
decreases by 12 each year. The n-intercept is

Since Company AвЂ™s sales increase by a
constant 1.3 million dollars each year, the
slope for A (t ) is 1.3. The A-intercept is
(0,9.5)
since the total sales are 9.5 million
dollars in year t = 0 . Therefore, the
equation for A (t ) is A (t ) = 1.3t + 9.5 .
Similar work for B (t ) gives the equation
B (t ) = 1.8t + 5.2 .

According to the sketch, sales at the

record time in 2007 will be 20.15 seconds

t = 8.6
Substitute 8.6 for t in A (t ) = 1.3t + 9.5 .
A (8.6 ) = 1.3 (8.6 ) + 9.5 = 20.68
In 2009 ( t = 9 ), the sales at both companies
will equal \$20.68 million dollars. This is the
same result as in part b.
d.
Start by plotting each set of data and then
find the regression lines.
Solve the inequality A (t ) < B (t ) .
c.
The absolute value of the slope for the
women is larger than for the men. This
means that the record time for women is
decreasing at a faster rate than for men.
d.
Since the slopes are not equal, the graphs of
the two equations will cross eventually. The
record times are getting closer which
indicates that the times will eventually be
equal sometime in the future.
