i) Last month the mail carrier delivered mail on the morning route 16 times and on the afternoon route 12 times, for a total distance traveled of 141 miles.

ii) This month the mail carrier delivered mail on the morning route 10 times and on the afternoon route 15 times, for a total distance traveled of 123.75 miles.

What is the distance of the morning route in miles ?

A) 5.25 ml         B) 6.00 ml      C) 4.75 ml         D) 5.00 ml

Solution

Problem 7 :

Quadratic functions p and q are graphed on the grid. The  graph of p was transformed to create the graph of q. Which function best represents the graph of q ?

 F) q(x) = -(x - 2)2  H) q(x) = -x2 - 2 G) q(x) = -(x + 2)2  J) q(x) = -x2 + 2

Solution

Problem 8 :

A) 7.5        B) 15         C) 5         D) Not here

Solution

Problem 9 :

The initial value of a home is \$200,000. The value of the home will increase at a rate of 6% each year.

Which graph best models this situation ? Solution

Problem 10 :

A coach has 96 golf balls for the school's golf team. The coach will give each player on the team 8 golf balls. The graph shows the linear relationship between y, the number of golf balls remaining for the team, and x, the number of players on the team. The coach will use no more than 6 players on the school's golf team. Which set best represents the range of the function for this situation ?

A) {96, 84, 72, 60, 48, 36, 24}        B) {8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14}

C) {96, 88, 80, 72, 64, 56, 48}        D) {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

Solution
