Maurice and Lester are twins who have just graduated from college. They have both been offered jobs where their take-home pay would be $2500 per month. Their parents have given Maurice and Lester two options for a graduation gift. Option 1: If they choose to pursue a graduate degree, their parents will give each of them a gift of $35,000. However, they must pay for their tuition and living expenses out of the gift. Option 2: If they choose to go directly into the workforce, their parents will give each of them a gift of $5000. Maurice decides to go to graduate school for 2 years. He locks in a tuition rate by paying $11,500 for the 2 years in advance, and he figures that his monthly expenses will be $1000. Lester decides to go straight into the workforce. Lester finds that after paying his rent, utilities, and other living expenses, he will be able to save $200 per month. Their parents deposit the appropriate amount of money in a money market account for each twin. The money market accounts are currently paying a nominal interest rate of 3 percent, compounded monthly. Lester works during the time that Maurice attends graduate school. Each month, Lester saves $200 and deposits this amount into the $5000 money market account that his parents set up for him when he graduated. If Lester's initial balance is u0=5000,un is the current month's balance, and un−1 is last month's balance, write an expression for un in terms of un−1.

We know from item 10 that: (Account balance any month=un)=(account balance the month before=un1)×1.0025+200
So, the equation becomes: un=un11.0025+200

The yield strength of CP titanium welds was measured for welds cooled at rates of \(10^{\circ}C/s,15^{\circ}C/s\ \text{and}\ 28^{\circ}C/s\). The results are presented in the following table. (Based on the article “Advances in Oxygen Equivalence Equations for Predicting the Properties of Titanium Welds,” D. Harwig, W. Ittiwattana, and H. Castner, The Welding Journal, 2001:126s-136s.)

\(\begin{array}{} \hline \text{Cooling Rate}&\text{Yield Strenghts}\\ \hline 10&71.00&75.00&79.67&81.00&75.50&72.50&73.50&78.50\\ 15&63.00&68.00&73.00&76.00&79.67&81.00\\ 28&68.65&73.70&78.40&84.40&91.20&87.15&77.20&80.70&84.85&88\\ \hline \end{array}\)
a. Construct an ANOVA table. You may give a range for the P-value. b. Can you conclude that the yield strength of CP titanium welds varies with the cooling rate?

Classify each of the studies as either descriptive or inferential. Explain your answers. In an article titled “Teaching and Assessing Information Literacy in a Geography Program” (Journal of Geography, Vol. 104, No. 1, pp. 17-23), Dr. M. Kimsey and S. Lynn Cameron reported results from an on-line assessment instrument given to senior geography students at one institution of higher learning.

At t=0 the current to a dc electric motor is reversed, resulting in an angular displacement of the motor shaft given by 𝜃(𝑡) = (250 𝑟𝑎𝑑/𝑠 )𝑡 − (20.0 𝑟𝑎𝑑/𝑠 2 )𝑡 2 − (1.50 𝑟𝑎𝑑/𝑠 3 ) 𝑡 3 . (a) At what time is the angular velocity of the motor shaft zero? (b) Calculate the angular acceleration at the instant that the motor shaft has zero angular velocity. (c) How many revolutions does the motor shaft turn through between the time when the current is reversed and the instant when the angular velocity is zero? (d) How fast was the motor shaft rotating at t=0 when the current was reversed? (e) Calculate the average angular velocity for the time period from t=0 to the time calculated in part (a). A
