let d be the number of DVD's rented 2d + 6 = 48 2d = 42 d = 21 If the customer borrows less than 21 DVD's the first plan is better If the customer borrows 21 DVD's s, the cost is the same If the customer borrows more than 21, the flat rate of $48 is best.

**Math 8th gr.**

27 - (-9) (-2) ÷ 3 * (-4) - 0 - 33 - (-39) just follow the rule of operations ... 27 + 24 - 0 - 33 + 39 = 57

**math test**

Pacific = x Caribbean = x+32 Medi = 4x - 38 x+x+32+4x-38 = 828 you solve it, it is easy

**Calculus**

so one side is not needed. let the two width be x m let the one length be y m 2x + y = 1000 y = 1000 - 2x area = xy = x(1000-2x) =1000x - 2x^2 d(area)/dx = 1000 - 4x = 0 for a max of area 4x = 1000 x = 250 y = 1000-500 = 500 max area = xy = 250(500) = 125000 m^2

**Calculus**

dd/dt = 1200 - 72000t = 0 for a max 72000t = 1200 t = 1/60 d = 1200(1/60) - 36000(1/3600) = 10 m

**Algebra**

total = 2x+1 + 3x + x+2 = 6x + 3 prob red = (2x+1)/(6x+3) = (2x+1)/(3(2x+1) ) = 1/3
