Week II Assignment
22 November 2012
This week assignment required to solve problem 68 on page 539 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra. There are three part to this assignment and the first part is as follows; The accompanying graph shows all of the possibilities for the number of refrigerators and the number of TVs that will fit into an 18-wheeler. | |

a)| Write an inequality to describe this region.|

p = y1-y2 / X1-x2 = 330 – 0 / 0-110 = -3/1 the slope is -3/1 or -3 Y – y1 = p(x – x1)
Y – 330 = - 3 / 1(x-0)
Y = - 3x/1 + 330
-3x/1 +330 = y expression switch by place the y on the right hand side -3x/-3 = y/-3 – 330/ -3 divide each equation by -3 and cancel out like terms -3y = 1x + 110
-3y + 1x < 110

b)| Will the truck hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs?|

-3 (71) + 1 (118) < 110
-213 + 118 < 110
-95 < 110 no the truck will not hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs. c)| Will the truck hold 51 refrigerators and 176 TVs?|

-3 (51) + 1 (176) < 110
-153 +176 < 110
23 < 110 yes the truck will hold at least 51 refrigerators and 176 TVs

The Burbank Buy More store is going to make an order which will include at most 60 refrigerators. What is the maximum number of TVs which could also be delivered on the same 18-wheeler? Describe the restrictions this would add to the existing graph. Solving for y

1(60) + -3y < 110
-3y < -60 + 110 add 110 to -60 to get 50
-3y < 50 divide both terms by -3
-3y/-3 > 50/-3 signs flip
Y > -50/3 or y = 16 there will be no added restriction because the maximum numbers of TVs The next day, the Burbank Buy More decides they will have a television sale so they change their order to include at least 200 TVs. What is the maximum number of refrigerators which could also be delivered in the same truck? Describe the restrictions this would add to the original graph. 1x + -3 (200) < 110

X < 600 + 100
X = < 710
If 200 TVs are ship then...

...sense that there are many aspects of Algebra that the majority of people do not use on a daily basis. I think that this fact is what leads people to the false conclusion that Algebra is useless.
To better understand our topic, let’s define what we mean when we say “Algebra”. Webster’s dictionary defines Algebra as “a form of mathematics dealing with symbols and equations.” A guest in the mathematics forum on xpmath.com states that...

Algebra is a branch of mathematics concerning the study of structure, relation, and quantity. Together with geometry, analysis, combinatorics, and number theory, algebra is one of the main branches of mathematics. This only means...

...Al-Khwarizmi: The Father of Algebra
Muhammed Ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi, was a mathematical pioneer, and is considered by many to be the greatest mathematician of the Islamic world, as well as the founder algebra. His book entitled Kitâb al-Mukhtasar fî Hisâb al-Jabr wa'l-Muqâbala, which means “The Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing,” established algebra as an independent discipline. While his arithmetic work, possibly...

...Algebra has long been taught in the same way. This usually means teachers rely heavily on the textbook. Though some textbooks have changed in recent years, the central focus is till on paper and pencil, memorization of rules, and use of algorithms. The Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM 1989) asks mathematics teachers to seek activities that “model real-world phenomena with a variety of function” and “represent and analyze relationships using...

Al-Khwarizmi and his colleagues, the Banu Musa, were scholars at The House of Wisdom in Baghdad. Their task there included the translation of Greek scientific manuscripts. In addition, they worked on algebra, geometry, and astronomy. Under the patronage of Al-Mamum, he dedicated two of his texts to the Caliph- his treatise on...

...The Difficulties Math Places on Students: A Summary of “Is Algebra Necessary?”
In “Is Algebra Necessary?” by Andrew Hacker, an emeritus professor of political science at Queens College, City University of New York , Hacker critiques algebra, claiming that students are not passing, and that this is limiting the level of education available to them . Hacker suggests that if we make math more practical, by adding things such as “citizen statistics,”...
