Length of wood = 8 $\frac{1}{2}$ = $\frac{17}{2}$ feet

Used wood = $\frac{2}{3}$ of the wood = $\frac{2}{3}$ of $\frac{17}{2}$

$=\frac{2}{3}\times \frac{17}{2}=\frac{17}{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\text{Left wood}=\frac{17}{2}-\frac{17}{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{(17\times 3)-(17\times 2)}{2\times 3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{17}{6}feet$

Consider the following statement: Mary wants to (spend, at least spend, at most spend) 20 minutes a day exercising. Depending on which word you chose in parenthesis you end up with a different expression.

Write the expression you would get for each of the word choices and label them.

You are designing a $1000c{m}^{3}$ right circular cylindrical can whose manufacture will take waste into account. There is no waste in cutting the aluminum for the side, but the top and bottom of radius r will be cut from squares that measure 2r units on a side. The total amount of aluminum used up by the can will therefore be

$A=8{r}^{2}+2\pi rh$
