A building code requires one square foot (sq ft) of net-free vent area (NFVA) for every 300 sq ft of attic space. How many square feet of NFVA are required for a \(\displaystyle{1620}-{s}{q}-{f}{t}\) attic?

Multiply by the area of the attic by the conversion factor: \(\displaystyle{1}{s}{q}{f}{t}{o}{f}{N}{F}{V}\frac{{A}}{{300}}{s}{q}{f}{t}\) of attic space: PSK \(\displaystyle{1620}{s}{q}{f}{t}\cdot\frac{{{1}{s}{q}{f}{t}{o}{f}{N}{F}{V}{A}}}{{{300}{s}{q}{f}{t}{o}{f}{a}{\mathtt{{i}}}{c}{s}{p}{a}{c}{e}}}={5.4}{s}{q}{f}{t}\) of NFVA

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.

The equation F=−vex(dm/dt) for the thrust on a rocket, can also be applied to an airplane propeller. In fact, there are two contributions to the thrust: one positive and one negative. The positive contribution comes from air pushed backward, away from the propeller (so dm/dt<0), at a speed vex relative to the propeller. The negative contribution comes from this same quantity of air flowing into the front of the propeller (so dm/dt>0) at speed v, equal to the speed of the airplane through the air.
For a Cessna 182 (a single-engine airplane) flying at 130 km/h, 150 kg of air flows through the propeller each second and the propeller develops a net thrust of 1300 N. Determine the speed increase (in km/h) that the propeller imparts to the air.

A factory uses machines to sort cards into piles. On one occasion a machine operator obtained the following curious result.
When a box of cards was sorted into 7 equal groups, there were 6 cards left over, when the box of cards was sorted into 5 equal groups, there were 4 left over, and when it was sorted into 3 equal groups, there were 2 left.
If the machine cannot sort more than 200 cards at a time, how many cards were in the box?
