A rectangular playground is to be fenced off and divided in two by another fence parallel to one side of the playground. Six hundredSix hundred and sixtyand sixty feet of fencing is used. Find the dimensions of the playground that maximize the total enclosed area. What is the maximum area?
one that is bigger than 3 1/2
- "runner b is moving at a slower rate."
- "the graphs shown are graphs of distance(km) against time(min).
the slopes of this graphs are are given by:
slope = (change in y)/(change in x)
= (change in distance)/(change in time)
this is the formula for finding the speed. so, the slope of these graphs represent the speed of the runner.
taking each division in the graph to represent 1 on both axis:
runner a ⇒ speed = (2-0)/(1-0)
= 2 km/min
runner b ⇒ speed = (3-0)/(3-0)
= 1 km/min
this shows that runner b is moving at a slower rate."
u = -(6/7)w
place all values with 'u' on one side of the equation.
4u + 8w = - 3u + 2w
4u + 3u = 2w - 8w
further simplify the equation by solving the addition and subtraction.
7u = - 6w
make 'u' the independent variable by placing its co-efficient on the right-hand side.
u = - (6/7)w
