A car has 16 gallons gas tank. On a long highway trip gas is used at the rate of about 2 gallons/hr. The quantity of gas (in gallons) can be modeledby the equation, G = 16-2t, G stands for gas, andt is for time in hours. At the end of the trip, there are 2 gallons of gas left. How long was the trip (in hours)?Use algebraic method to solve this problem.

A movie stuntman (mass 80.0kg) stands on a window ledge 5.0 mabove the floor. Grabbing a rope attached to a chandelier, heswings down to grapple with the movie's villian (mass 70.0 kg), whois standing directly under the chandelier.(assume that thestuntman's center of mass moves downward 5.0 m. He releasesthe rope just as he reaches the villian).
a) with what speed do the entwined foes start to slide acrossthe floor?
b) if the coefficient of kinetic friction of their bodies withthe floor is 0.250, how far do they slide?

Consider the following function
f ( x ) = k = 0 a k x k .
Let us say I know a k belongs to a strict subset F R .
I want to characterize the set of sequences { a k } k = 0 for which f ( x ) is a rational function in x.
Can someone point me to relevant results in literature?
