A cruise ship charges $125 per night for a room. There are 250 rooms on the ship. If every room on the ship is booked, how much money does the cruise ship make in a single night?

Let the cruise ship's profit by represented by P and the amount of rooms booked be represented by r. We can represent this by the equation
P=125r, as we're told that each room r costs $125.
So, if there are 250 rooms booked, the we simply plug in r=250 into the above equation for the profit:
P=125(250)=31250
The cruise ship makes $31,250.

asked 2022-06-20
So, I was trying to obtain the point form of the conservation of linear momentum equation in integral form, namely:
Ω V ρ V d S + Ω p d S = 0
According to the Gauss theorem for a closed surface S:
S A d S = V A d V
But if I apply that to the above equation I get
Ω V ρ V d S = Ω ( V ρ V ) d V = Ω ( V ) ρ V d V
Which can't be right, since for an incompressible flow V = 0.
Isn't the dot product supposed to be commutative? What am I missing?
I apologize for any misuse of mathematical notation, let me know of any mistakes.

I have just started auditing Linear Algebra, and the first thing we learned was how to solve a system of linear equations by reducing it to row echelon form (or reduced row echelon form). I know how to solve a system of linear equations using determinants, and so the using row echelon form seems to be very inefficient and an easy way to make mistakes.
The lecturer seemed to indicate that this will be useful in the future for something else, but a friend who has a PhD in mathematics said it is totally useless.
Is this true? Is this technique totally useless or is there some "higher mathematics" field/ technique where row echelon form will be useful?
