Three fire observation towers are located at points A (-6,-12), B (11,15), and C (-3,15), on a map where all the units are in kilometers. A fire is located at distances of 17 km, 15km, and 13km, respectively, from the observation towers. Graph three center circles whose centers are located at the observation towers and whose radii are the given distances to the fire. Then estimate the location of the fire.

Equation for these three towers are:
\(\displaystyle{\left({x}+{6}\right)}^{{{2}}}+{\left({y}+{12}\right)}^{{{2}}}={17}^{{{2}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\left({x}-{11}\right)}^{{{2}}}+{\left({y}-{15}\right)}^{{{2}}}={15}^{{{2}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\left({x}+{3}\right)}^{{{2}}}+{\left({y}-{15}\right)}^{{{2}}}={13}^{{{2}}}\)

Consider the accompanying data on flexural strength (MPa) for concrete beams of a certain type.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline 11.8 & 7.7 & 6.5 & 6 .8& 9.7 & 6.8 & 7.3 \\ \hline 7.9 & 9.7 & 8.7 & 8.1 & 8.5 & 6.3 & 7.0 \\ \hline 7.3 & 7.4 & 5.3 & 9.0 & 8.1 & 11.3 & 6.3 \\ \hline 7.2 & 7.7 & 7.8 & 11.6 & 10.7 & 7.0 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
a) Calculate a point estimate of the mean value of strength for the conceptual population of all beams manufactured in this fashion. \([Hint.\ ?x_{j}=219.5.]\) (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
MPa
State which estimator you used.
\(x\)
\(p?\)
\(\frac{s}{x}\)

b) Calculate a point estimate of the strength value that separates the weakest \(50\%\) of all such beams from the strongest \(50\%\).
MPa
State which estimator you used.
\(s\)

c) Calculate a point estimate of the population standard deviation ?. \([Hint:\ ?x_{i}2 = 1859.53.]\) (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
MPa
Interpret this point estimate.
This estimate describes the linearity of the data.
This estimate describes the bias of the data.
This estimate describes the spread of the data.
This estimate describes the center of the data.
Which estimator did you use?

d) Calculate a point estimate of the proportion of all such beams whose flexural strength exceeds 10 MPa. [Hint: Think of an observation as a "success" if it exceeds 10.] (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
e) Calculate a point estimate of the population coefficient of variation \(\frac{?}{?}\). (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
State which estimator you used.

Find the value of the following expression:

asked 2021-12-04

Nathaniel is using the quadratic formula to solve \(0 = x^2 + 5x - 6\). His steps are shown below.
Step 1: Gather necessary information. \(X = \frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac}}{2a}= а-1, b-5, с-6\)
Step 2: Substitute. \(X = \frac{-5 \pm \sqrt{(5)^2 - 4(1)(-6)}}{2(1)}\)
Step 3: Simplify. \(X = \frac{-5 \pm \sqrt{49}}{2}\)
What are the solutions to the equation?
