Cost Formula Word Problem
The cost formula for a manufacturer’s product is C = 5000 + 2 x , where C is the cost (in dollars) and x is the number of units manufactured. (a) If no units are produced, what is the cost?
(b) If the manufacturer produces 3000 units, what is the cost? (c) If the manufacturer has spent $16,000 on production, how many units were manufactured? Answer these questions by substituting the numbers into the formula. (a) If no units are produced, then x = 0, and C = 5000 + 2 x becomes C = 5000 + 2(0) = 5000. The cost is $5,000. (b) If the manufacturer produces 3000 units, then x = 3000, and C = 5000 + 2 x becomes C = 5000 + 2(3000) = 5000 + 6000 = 11,000. The manufacturer’s cost would be $11,000. (c) The manufacturer’s cost is $16,000, so C = 16,000. Substitute C = 16,000 into C = 5000 + 2 xto get 16,000 = 5000 + 2 x .

There were 5500 units produced.
Profit Formula Word Problem
The profit formula for a manufacturer’s product is P = 2 x – 4000 where x is the number of units sold and P is the profit (in dollars). (a) What is the profit when 12,000 units were sold?
(b) What is the loss when 1500 units were sold?
(c) How many units must be sold for the manufacturer to have a profit of $3000? (d) How many units must be sold for the manufacturer to break even? (This question could have been phrased, “How many units must be sold in order for the manufacturer to cover its costs?”) (a) If 12,000 units are sold, then x = 12,000. The profit equation then becomes P = 2(12,000) – 4000 = 24,000 – 4000 = 20,000. The profit is $20,000. (b) Think of a loss as a negative profit. When 1500 units are sold, P = 2 x – 4000 becomes P = 2(1500) – 4000 = 3000 – 4000 = – 1000. The manufacturer loses $1000 when 1500 units are sold. (c) If the profit is $3000, then P = 3000; P = 2 x – 4000 becomes 3000 = 2 x – 4000.

A total of 3500 units were sold.
(d) The break-even point occurs when the profit is zero, that is when P = 0. Then P = 2 x – 4000 becomes 0 =...

...The problems of definition of a word
Nobody doubts that word is a basic unit of lexicology, alongside with morphemes and phraseological units. Each word is a small unit within a vast, efficient and well-balanced system. It is immediately understood by every native speaker. A word is a dialectical unity of form and content.
The definition of the word is one of the most difficult in linguistics because the simplest word is a multi-aspect unit possessing a sound form (a certain arrangement of phonemes). Besides, it has morphological structure (a certain arrangement of morphemes).
When it is used in actual speech, it may occur in different word forms and signal different meanings. The word is a sort of focus for the problems of phonology, lexicology, syntax, morphology and also for some other sciences dealing with the language and speech. Each of these sciences suggests its own definition of the word but in fact none of these definitions can be considered totally satisfactory in all aspects. If we try to divorce two facets of the word (form and content), the word will lose its identity. The word is further complicated by the existence of variants and word forms. ‘Write - writing - has been writing - wrote - written’ - these are word forms. They are...

..."Age" WordProblems (page 1 of 2)
In January of the year 2000, I was one more than eleven times as old as my son William. In January of 2009, I was seven more than three times as old as him. How old was my son in January of 2000?
Obviously, in "real life" you'd have walked up to my kid and and asked him how old he was, and he'd have proudly held up three grubby fingers, but that won't help you on your homework. Here's how you'd figure out his age for class:
First, name things and translate the English into math: Let "E " stand for my age in 2000, and let "W " stand for William's age. Then E = 11W + 1 in the year 2000 (from "eleven times as much, plus another one"). In the year 2009 (nine years after the year 2000), William and I will each be nine years older, so our ages will be E + 9 and W + 9. Also, I was seven more than three times as old as William was, so E + 9 = 3(W + 9) + 7 = 3W + 27 + 7 = 3W + 34. This gives you two equations, each having two variables:
E = 11W + 1
E + 9 = 3W + 34
If you know how to solve systems of equations, you can proceed with those techniques. Otherwise, you can use the first equation to simplify the second: since E = 11W + 1, plug "11W + 1 " in for "E " in the second equation:
E + 9 = 3W + 34
(11W + 1) + 9 = 3W + 34
11W – 3W = 34 – 9 – 1
8W = 24
W = 3
Remember that the problem did not ask for the value of the variable W; it asked for the age of a person. So the answer is: William...

...Concussion conundrum
Read and write a review of the following article.
http://www.afl.com.au/tabid/208/default.aspx?newsid=140857
ADELAIDE admits it doesn't know what it would do in a Grand Final if it was down to 17 fit players and a player with suspected concussion wanted to go back onto the ground.
Crows football operations manager Phil Harper told SEN radio on Monday morning Adelaide's coaching staff had briefly considered that very dilemma during Saturday night's Showdown when forward Kurt Tippett wanted to return to the field against the club doctor's advice.
Tippett suffered a heavy head knock in a collision with Port defender Tom Logan early in Saturday night's game and was taken from the ground. Shaun McKernan had already been substituted with a broken jaw.
Harper said Crows coach Brenton Sanderson had been adamant the club had to follow its doctor's advice that Tippett was not fit to return despite the key forward's subsequent desire to resume.
"By half-time Kurt was feeling a bit better and wanted to go back out and play and the doctors were saying no," Harper said.
"We were saying, 'He wants to come back on, what do we do?' And the coach was quite adamant 'No, no, the doctor says he doesn't come on'."
But Harper admitted a similar call might not be so clear-cut in a Grand Final.
"We had a good philosophical discussion in the box as to well, what if it was a Grand Final and we're down to 17 guys and he wants to go on, what do we do?"...
