14. The number of instrctions N performed per second by a computer varies directly as the speed S of the computer's internal processor. A processor with a speed of 20 megahertz an perform 1,800,000 instructions per second.

a. Find an equation of variation
N =

b. The same processor perform _____ instructions if it is running at a speed of 180 megahertz.

18. To travel a fixed distance, the numver of gallons needed is inversely proportional to the miles-per-gallons rating P of the car gets 42 miles-per-gallon (mpg) needs 33 gal to travel the distance.

    #9.
    If you mean
    9/(5w) + 8/w then that is
    9/(5w) + 40/(5w) = 49/(5w)

    If you mean
    (9/5) w + 8/w then that is
    9w^2/(5w) + 40/(5w) = (9w^2+40)/(5w)

    #14.
    N = kS
    1.8 = k*20 (in M)
    k = .09, so
    N(S) = .09S
    N(180) = .09*180 = 16.2

    #18.
    N = k/P
    33 = k/42
    k = 1386, so
    N(P) = 1386/P
    N(77) = 1386/77 = ?
