Problem

What are the solutions of 17 ≤ 2x + 7 ≤ 29? Graph the solutions.

17 ≤ 2x + 7 ≤ 29 is the same as 17 ≤ 2x + 7 and 2x + 7 ≤ 29. You can solve it as two inequalities.

...Inequalities
In this assignment I will demonstrate every step of the process of determining my body
mass index or BMI. After finding the body mass index I will then complete the following
intervals based on my height. The formula used to determine the body mass
index is BMI= 703W , where W represents a person weight in pounds and H represents a person
H2
height in inches.
My height is 70 inches. The first interval shows acompoundinequality for:
17<BMI<22
17<703W<22
H2 To make it an equivalent inequality I replaced the BMI with the formula
17<703W<22
702 My height in inches replaced H2
17<703W<22
4900 then multiply by the height that was squared
17(4900)<703W<22(4900)
4900 cancelling is performed
83300 <703W<107800 multiplication carried out
83300<703W<107800
703 703 703 to get W by itself all terms were divided by 703
118.49<W<153.34
After completing the problem I determined that people who are 70 inches may have a longer that average life if they weigh between 118.49 and 153.34
To solve this interval I’m going to solve for W prior to solving the inequality.

On page 151 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, the Body Mass Index (BMI) is given as:
BMI= 703W/H2
W = one’s weight in pounds
H = one’s height in inches.
By calculating four intervals based on your height can be possible by using the Body Mass Index formula. However, in this situation I am going to use inequalities to calculate Body Mass Index(BMI) which is meant to use my height to calculate if I’m overweight , having a longer life span than average, or to calculate if I’m obese. In the real world it is significant to have knowledge about being overweight because this could come into the use of attention of medical assistance. By using inequalities and solving them could serve a far more severe importance than just a mathematical problem.
The first interval for this problem is the solvation for a longer life span than average.
17< BMI <22 The compoundinequality.
17< 703W/H2 <22 Use the BMI formula in replace of the original compoundinequality so
we now have an equivalent inequality.
17< 703W/62.002 <22 I replaced H2 for my height in inches.
17< 703W/3844 <22 Then, I multiplied the three numbers by the denominator to rid the
exponent that was on the bottom associated with my height.
17(3844)<...

Gilman and Marx
The authors I chose to compare and analyze are Karl Marx and Charlotte Perkins Gilman, I found that I can relate to both of them and found the reading quite interesting. For this final assignment I will be using Karl Marx’s concept of Alienation and Gilman’s concept of Gender Inequality. I will talk about Gilman’s oppression of women in patriarchy society while Marx’s theory as to why workers are oppressed under Capitalism.
First, What does Marx mean by alienation? Karl Marx states that the alienated person feels a lack of meaning in his life, or a lack of self-realization. Alienation has to do with being ‘lifeless’ while working. Workers have no control or say in what they do. They are not able to use their creativity to produce a product or be able to input ideas of any sort. They become machines like the machines they use. “They sell not only their labor power, but also their souls” (applerouth, 2010:pg. 20). The ideology of a self made man that the harder you work the more successful you are going to be. This is what drives us go to work every single day even we hate our jobs. we think that if we stay there, there is a chance of upward mobility. After a while we become alienated, losing ourselves to our work and materialistic things. Alienation of workers means “no control over the product they are producing, while their work is devoid of any redeeming human qualities”. (Applerouth: 2010 pg. 20) I started...

...POV of 2 interlinked articles:
Makwana (2005) argues that the sustenance of WTO, World Bank and IMF is not beneficial for developing countries, since they are sustained by the economically dominating governments of the developed countries.
Since these countries see neoliberalism as the way to achieve development in developing countries, yet fail to liberalize their own markets to the free international, competitive trade by implementing protectionists measures, like import tariffs and subsidizing domestic production, which leads to developing countries experiencing worsening terms of trade.
The World Bank is criticized for contracting foreign, mostly Western corporations, for a developing project that it launches in developing countries. These corporations then profit from the project, the developing country encounters a loss of income since a major part of it is transferred abroad.
The IMF is criticized for its lending regulation and the SAPs , making the developing countries set repayment set as its main priority above national welfare.
The WTO is criticized for failing to lift the domestic barriers of developed countries but succeeding in that for developing countries, which leads to the above-mentioned worsening terms of trade.
The World Bank and IMF are seen as incredibly undemocratic, since the votes are distributed unequally according to financial input of countries. The US, with 18% of the votes, has veto right for policies that do not serve US...

...Inequality: Causes and Consequences
Marcus Robinson
Florida A& M University
Inequality is the lack of equality, opportunity, treatment, or status. Inequality has been going on since World War II and began to rise in the mid 1970s. Many people in the world from the United States to the Caribbean have dealt with this problem. In this article it discusses the causes and consequences of inequality researches and examinations of sociologists and economists that go in depth of the social and political life of people mainly in the United States, as well as global. It provides an update of research on their consequences.
Also it focuses on the international comparison to sharpen the readers understanding of domestic trends of the readers. The consequences on inequality deals with economic inequality of health , crime, change educational attainment, politics, social capital, and other outcomes that is discussed throughout the article. Sociologists’ research goal is to make readers knowledgeable of the processes driving inequality dynamics and their different implications in different social domains. Economic inequality in the Unites States is a social problem today is because of the importance of wealth. People are obsessed with money that how to get it they will do anything even it means undermining someone. It is true that some measure of...

Social Theory
Inequality:
for Economic growth utilizing
(Class, Gender, Education, Race)
The similarities found within the theorists articles are primarily based on inequality. Various authors explain how it is reproduced and used for incentives. How that ties into the economic growth that can increase productivity through competition.
Some of those sub-levels used to create those inequalities are: class, gender, race and education. The differences in inequality when race is applied are the articles of Bonacich and Hartmann. Bonacich talks of the ethnic antagonism found within our country that applies to two types: ‘the exclusion movement and the so-called caste systems’. “In the one, an effort is made to prevent an ethnically different group from being a part of the society. In the other, an ethnically different group is essential to the society; it is an exploited class supporting the entire edifice” (Bonacich, 120). If we were to apply this in a class oriented position, this is how it would appear in modern times. For example, the private school (exclusion) and public school (caste) system; demonstrating the theory in itself. In the private school it is built up of the elite leaders spawns and their intention is to provide their heirs with the best, but making sure that they have the best of the best thus ‘excluding’ or eliminating others of the opportunity. While the public system is caste giving...

... Using the inequalities when working out your math problems you have to make sure that you are using the proper format of the problem. I will also be using equations that are equivalent to one another, along with compoundinequality and showing the intervals of the problem and infinity of the problem. I will be using the terms inequality, equivalent, compoundinequality, interval and infinity.
I will be using the formula for Body Mass Index for the problems that I am working to solve and to calculate. According to Dugopolski, “The formula for Body Mass Index is: BMI=703W” (2012).
BMI=703W
H2
Where W = one’s weight in pounds, and H = one’s height in inches.
17<BMI<22
17<703W<22 this is an equivalent inequality replacing BMI with the formula
H2
17<703W<22 H2 is replaced by the height in inches
65.52
17<703W < then you multiply all three of the terms by the denominator
65.52
17(4290.25) < 703W (4290.25) < 22(4290.25) the canceling has been done
4290.25
72934.25 < 703W < 94385.5 the multiplication has been done also
72934.25 < 703W < 94385.5 the terms has been divided and the W has been isolated
703 703 703
104 < 134
It is assumed that the persons that are 65.5 inches might have a longer life span if...

...The Kite Runner
In many societies, differences in religion and history can cause a social rift and create a structure of classes. This separation between people can affect the circumstances they are subject to and essentially how they live their life. However an individual’s outlook on life and the positive and negative thoughts he or she acquires are dependant solely on his or her decisions and outside forces. In the novel, The Kite Runner, the author Khaled Hosseini tells the story of an Afgan boy who struggles with the emotional consequences of a childhood decision that set him on a search for redemption. The author shows that classism determines the quality of one’s lifestyle but not the emotional state of mind one possesses. This is established through the social setting in the novel which enforces classist ideals that rigidly cast individuals into certain roles and determine the way they are treated. Next, the character of Amir’s childhood friend and servant, Hassan, undergoes a grim change as a result of a traumatic incident rather then a consequence of his social standing and material worth. Finally, Amir consistently battles with an internal conflict and guilt after betraying Hassan despite living a privileged and financially-comfortable life.
The religious segregation of the Afghan people creates a classist social setting which shapes the lifestyle and expectations of those within it. One of the most evident cases of division based on social class in the...
