The following quadratic function in general form, displaystyle{S}{left({t}right)}={5.8}{t}^{2}—{81.2}{t}+{1200} models the number of luxury home sales

The following quadratic function in general form, S(t)=5.8t281.2t+1200 models the number of luxury home sales, S(t), in a major Canadian urban area, according to statistical data gathered over a 12 year period. Luxury home sales are defined in this market as sales of properties worth over $3 Million (inflation adjusted). In this case, {t}={0} represents 2000and{t}={11}represents 2011. Use a calculator to find the year when the smallest number of luxury home sales occurred. Without sketching the function, interpret the meaning of this function, on the given practical domain, in one well-expressed sentence.

Given:
The number of luxury home sales S(t) in a major Canadian urban area over a period of 12 year is given by:
S(t)=5.8t281.2t+1200
For minimum number of sales:
dS(t)dt=0
d(5.8t281.2t+1200)dt=0
11.6t81.2=0
11.6t=81.2
t=81.211.6
t=7
So, minimum number of sales is given by
S(7)=5.8(7)281.2(7)+1200
S(7)=284.2568.2+1200
S(7)915.8
S(7)=916

Aurora is planning to participate in an event at her school's field day that requires her to complete tasks at various stations in the fastest time possible. To prepare for the event, she is practicing and keeping track of her time to complete each station. The x-coordinate is the station number, and the y-coordinate is the time in minutes since the start of the race that she completed the task. (1,3),(2,6),(3,12),(4,24)
Part A: Is this data modeling an algebraic sequence or a geometric sequence? Explain your answer.
Part B: Use a recursive formula to determine the time she will complete station 5.
Part C: Use an explicit formula to find the time she will complete the 9th station.

M. F. Driscoll and N. A. Weiss discussed the modeling and solution of problems concerning motel reservation networks in “An Application of Queuing Theory to Reservation Networks” (TIMS, Vol. 22, No. 5, pp. 540–546). They defined a Type 1 call to be a call from a motel’s computer terminal to the national reservation center. For a certain motel, the number, X, of Type 1 calls per hour has a Poisson distribution with parameter λ=1.7.
Determine the probability that the number of Type 1 calls made from this motel during a period of 1 hour will be:
a) exactly one.
b) at most two.
c) at least two.
(Hint: Use the complementation rule.)
d. Find and interpret the mean of the random variable X.
e. Determine the standard deviation of X.

How do frequency tables, relative frequencies, and histograms showing relative frequencies help us understand sampling distributions? They show each data point in the sampling distribution and how it relates to the overall distribution.They provide insight into the overall behavior of the population, therefore helping us understand the sampling distribution. They help us visualize the sampling distribution by using tables and graphs that approximately represent the sampling distribution.They help us visualize the sampling distribution by using tables and graphs that approximately represent the population distribution.
