Step 1
Given:
Rate of discount on dozen cupcakes, r = 20%
Amount of discount = 4.25$
Step 2
Let the regular price of a dozen cupcakes = $x
so,
\(\displaystyle\Rightarrow{x}\times\frac{{20}}{{100}}={4.25}\)
\(\displaystyle\Rightarrow{x}\frac{{{4.25}\times{100}}}{{20}}\)
\(\displaystyle\Rightarrow{x}=\${21.25}\)

The rate of change of the volume of a snowball that is melting is proportional to the surface area of the snowball. Suppose the snowball is perfectly spherical. Then the volume (in centimeters cubed) of a ball of radius r centimeters is \(\displaystyle\frac{{4}}{{3}}\pi{r}^{{3}}\). The surface area is \(\displaystyle{4}\pi{r}^{{2}}\).Set up the differential equation for how r is changing. Then, suppose that at time t = 0 minutes, the radius is 10 centimeters. After 5 minutes, the radius is 8 centimeters. At what time t will the snowball be completely melted.

A bipolar alkaline water electrolyzer stack module comprises 160 electrolytic cells that have an effective cell area of \(\displaystyle{2}{m}^{{2}}\). At nominal operation, the current density for a single cell of the electrolyzer stack is 0.40 \(\displaystyle\frac{{A}}{{c}}{m}^{{2}}\). The nominal operating temperature of the water electrolyzer stack is \(\displaystyle{70}^{\circ}\) C and pressure 1 bar. The voltage over a single electrolytic cell is 1.96 V at nominal load and 1.78 V at 50% of nominal load. The Faraday efficiency of the water electrolyzer stack is 95% at nominal current density, but at 50% of nominal load, the Faraday efficiency decreases to 80%.
