A farmer has a vegetable garden which is 35 feet wide by 80 feet long. The farmer wishes to divide the garden equally between tomatoes, peppers, and cabbage. However, the farmer would like to keep a one-foot border around the garden free for a fence. How many square feet can be used for the tomato planting?

Answers (1)

Lenght of garden = 80 feet
width of garden = 35 feet
farmer would leki to keep a one foot boarder around the garden.
Lenght for planting vegetable=80-2=78 feet
width for planting vegetable=35-2=33 feet
Area for planting veletable=78*33=2574 square feet
Farmer divide the garden equally between tomatoes, peppers and cabbage. Therefore area for planting the tomatoes = \(\displaystyle\frac{{1}}{{3}}\cdot{2574}={858}\) square feet.
Hence 858 square feet can be used for the tomato planting

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use \(\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\) for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.

Here’s an interesting challenge you can give to a friend. Hold a $1 (or larger!) bill by an upper corner. Have a friend prepare to pinch a lower corner, putting her fingers near but not touching the bill. Tell her to try to catch the bill when you drop it by simply closing her fingers. This seems like it should be easy, but it’s not. After she sees that you have released the bill, it will take her about 0.25 s to react and close her fingers-which is not fast enough to catch the bill. How much time does it take for the bill to fall beyond her grasp? The length of a bill is 16 cm.

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.
