Concept used:
Consider the following steps to solve one variable linear inequality:
If an equation contains fractions or decimals, multiply both sides by the LCD to clear the equation of fractions or decimals.
Use the distributive property to remove parentheses if they are present.
Simplify each side of the inequality by combining like terms.
Get all variable terms on one side and all numbers on the other side by using the addition property of inequality.
Get the variable alone by using the multiplication property of equality.
Check the solution by plugging it into the original equation.
Translate the problem into an equation as,
\(\displaystyle{400}{x}={31680}\)
\(\displaystyle\frac{{{400}{x}}}{{400}}=\frac{31680}{{400}}\)
\(\displaystyle{x}={79.2}\)
Thus, the time taken by the Glacier is 79.2 years.

Dayton Power and Light, Inc., has a power plant on the Miami Riverwhere the river is 800 ft wide. To lay a new cable from the plantto a location in the city 2 mi downstream on the opposite sidecosts $180 per foot across the river and $100 per foot along theland.
(a) Suppose that the cable goes from the plant to a point Q on theopposite side that is x ft from the point P directly opposite theplant. Write a function C(x) that gives the cost of laying thecable in terms of the distance x.
(b) Generate a table of values to determin if the least expensivelocation for point Q is less than 2000 ft or greater than 2000 ftfrom point P.

a student is speeding down route 11 in his fancy red Porschewhen his radar system warns him of an obstacle 400 ft ahead. heimmediately applies the brakes, starts to slow down and spots askunk in the road directly ahead of him. the "black box" in thePorsche records the car's speed every 2 seconds , producing thefollowing table. the speed decreases throughout the 10 seconds ittakes to stop, although not necessarily at a uniform rate.
time since brakes applied (sec) 0 2 4 6 8 10
speed(ft/sec) 100 80 50 25 10 0
a) what is your best estimate of the total distance thestudent's car travelled before coming to rest?
b) which one of the following statements can you justify fromthe information given?
1) the car stopped before getting to the skunk.
2) the " black box" data is inconclusive. the skunk may or maynot have been hit.
3) the skunk was hit by the car.
