In the education field there is a large demand for classroom supplies. Most teachers receive a little financial help, but it rarely covers the cost for the whole year. With this in mind, many teachers need to purchase school supplies with their own money. Living on a teacher’s salary many times means watching every dollar. If a teacher needs to spend his or her own money on supplies for their room, their going to shop around for the best deal out there.

A week before the start of school there are two school and office supply stores offering sales. Apple (“A”) Office Supplies is offering a 20% off sale on complete purchases. Banana (“B”) School Supply is offering a sale in which there is a 25% discount for every dollar amount spent above $20.00. Using two different algebraic equations I will evaluate and compare the two cost options. After solving the systems of equations I will depict the situation graphically using separate amounts of total funds spent in range from $20-$300.00.

X= Dollar amount before discount
Y= Dollar amount after discount

Store “A” 20% off total sales 0.8X = Y
The dollar amount before the discount is multiplied by 80% (.80). This is algebraically the use of the substitution method. The dollar amount before the discount is substituted for X, and then multiplied by .80 which in turn will give you the answer to Y. Y is the final sale price.

Store “B” 25% off every dollar (X-20).75 + 20 = YX >20
Amount spent above $20.00.75X – 15 + 20 = Y
.75X + 5 = Y
. The dollar amount before the discount is substituted for X. This is algebraically the use of the substitution method, then X is multiplied by .75 and .75 is multiplied by negative 20 using distribution. The like terms of .75 multiplied by the substituted value for X, negative 15, and 20 are added which in turn will give you the answer to Y. Because the discount does not take effect until the purchase is over...

In this task you will prepare a report for the chief financial officer (CFO) to present to a bank vice president who may consider extending a long-term loan to Custom Snowboards, Inc. The CFO has requested that you analyze the financial statements to arrive at a selection of key financial statement line items, a risk assessment and ratios that the banker may use to assess and, if the loan is granted, track the progress of the company’s ability to repay the...

...Development “provided evidence for enhancing learning and achievement as well as positive social outcomes when the arts were integral to students’ learning experiences” lawmakers started looking at the Arts in education more seriously (Burns, 2003, p. 5). Writer Victoria Jacobs explains, “Arts in elementary schools have often been separated from the core curriculum and instead, offered as enrichment activities that are considered beneficial but not essential” (Jacobs, 1999, p....

...Task 2
Use the situation above to complete parts A1 through A5.
1. Find the x-intercept and y-intercept of the given equation algebraically, showing all work.
Y = -2/3x + 30
x-intercept
0=-2/3x+30
-30=-2/3X
(3/2)(-30)=(-2/3x)(3/2)
-45=-x
45=x
x-intercept: (45,0)
y-intercept
y=-2/3(0)+30
y=30
y-intercept: (0,30)
2. Graph the given equation.
• Label each axis of the coordinate plane with descriptive labels.
• Label each intercept as...

Part A:
Describe how to introduce the concept of surface area of a cube to students in grades 5 and 6.
I would introduce the concept of surface area of a cube to 5th and 6th grade students by starting off the lesson with a visual representation. I would place a picture of a cube at the front of the class and explain to students that all sides are equal. I would take out a ruler and measure the sides so that students understand that...

...Biochemistry Task5
Shannon Alford
Lipid Storage Molecule Conversion to ATP
Lipids (also known as fats) are nonpolar, insoluble molecules gained within the body trough digestion of food. Triglycerides, a type of lipid that serve as storage units for energy have 3 fatty acid chain tails made up of carboxylic acid and a fatty carbon chain attached to a glycerol backbone. These molecules can be saturated or unsaturated contingent on the bond types and hydrogen...

...Center based option y = 185 (for x /< 40 hours)
Since they are both equal to y, we can use the substitution method to set both equations equal to each other.
5x = 185
5/5 = 185/5
x = 37
Plug x = 37 back into one of the equations above to find y.
y = 5 * 37
y= 185
The solution point is 37 hours for $185, (37,$185)
Daycare option y = 5x
Center based option y = 185 + 8(x-40)...
