To calculate: To write the given statements (a) and (b) as functions f(x) and g(x)respectively.

Professor Harsh gave a test to his college algebra class and nobody got more than 80 points (out of 100) on the test.

One problem worth 8 points had insufficient data, so nobody could solve that problem.

The professor adjusted the grades for the class by

a. Increasing everyones

Calculation:

x represents the original score of a student.

10% of x is given by,

$\frac{10}{100}\times x=0.1x$

So when the score is increased by 10%, the new score is given by,

x+0.1x = 1.1x

Therefore,

The function that represents the score increased by 10% is given by f(x) = 1.lx

When the original score is increased by 8 points,

The new score is given by,

x+8

Therefore,

The function that represents the score increased by 8 points is given by g(x) =x + 8.

x represents the original score of a student.

10% of x is given by,

So when the score is increased by 10%, the new score is given by,

x+0.1x = 1.1x

Therefore,

The function that represents the score increased by 10% is given by f(x) = 1.lx

When the original score is increased by 8 points,

The new score is given by,

x+8

Therefore,

The function that represents the score increased by 8 points is given by g(x) =x + 8.
