MATH 115 MIDTERM EXAM

NAME: _______________________________ November, 2016 Instructor: S. Sands I have completed this assignment myself, working independently and not consulting anyone except the instructor.

INSTRUCTIONS The exam is worth 100 points. There are 13 problems. This exam is open book and open notes. This means that you may

refer to your textbook, notes, and online classroom materials, but you must work independently and may not consult

anyone (and confirm this with your submission). You may take as much time as you wish, provided you turn in your exam

no later than Sunday, November 20. Show work/explanation where indicated. Answers without any work may earn little, if any, credit. You may type or

write your work in your copy of the exam, or if you prefer, create a document containing your work. Scanned work is

acceptable also. In your document, be sure to include your name and the assertion of independence of work. If you have any questions, please contact me by e-mail. 1. (6 pts)

Option A: Salary of \$1040 per month, plus 7.2% of monthly sales (in dollars)

or Option B: Salary of \$1425 per month, plus 5.6% of monthly sales (in dollars)

(a) State a linear function f (x) that represents the Option A total income, given monthly sales of x dollars. (b) State a linear function g(x) that represents the Option B total income, given monthly sales of x dollars. (c) Emily wants to determine the following:

For what amount of monthly sales is Option A the better choice rather than Option B?

To answer the question, should you solve the inequality f (x) &gt; g(x) or the inequality f (x) &lt; g(x) ?

conclusion. ? 4 x +33=x +7 12. (9 pts) Let f (x) = 2e ? x 1.

(a) Which describes how the graph of f can be obtained from the graph of y = ex ? Choice: ________

A. Reflect the graph of

B. Reflect the graph of

C. Stretch the graph of

D. Stretch the graph of y = ex across the x-axis, stretch vertically by a factor of 2, and shift downward by 1 unit.

y = ex across the y-axis, stretch vertically by a factor of 2, and shift downward by 1 unit.

y = ex vertically by a factor of 2, shift to the left by 1 unit, and shift downward by 1 unit.

y = ex vertically by a factor of 2, shift to the right by 1 unit, and shift downward by 1 unit. (b) What is the y-intercept?

(c) Which is the graph of f ?

GRAPH A (below) GRAPH C (below) GRAPH B (below) GRAPH D (below) 13. (17 pts) On a particular fall day, the outdoor temperature was recorded periodically and a quadratic function

was used to model the data. y = f (t) = 0.28t2 + 7.56t + 23.97 for 0 t 24 where t = time of day (in hours)

and y = temperature (in degrees)

REMARK: Time is measured in hours elapsed since midnight. For instance, t = 4 means 4 am. t = 22 means 10 pm. (a) Using algebraic techniques we have learned, find the maximum temperature predicted by the quadratic

model and find the time when it occurred. Report the time to the nearest quarter hour (i.e., __:00 or __:15 or __:30 or

__:45). (For instance, a time of 18.25 hours is reported as 6:15 pm in the usual time notation.) Report the maximum

temperature to the nearest tenth of a degree. Show algebraic work. (b) Find and interpret the average rate of change of f over the interval [16, 20]. Show work. (c) Use the quadratic polynomial y = 0.28t2 + 7.56t + 23.97 together with algebra to approximate the

time(s) of day when the outdoor temperature y was 68 degrees.

That is, solve the quadratic equation 68 = 0.28t2 + 7.56t + 23.97 .

Show work in solving. (Show how the quadratic formula is used, with the appropriate values substituted.)

Round the results to the nearest tenth. Write a concluding sentence to report the time(s) to the nearest

quarter-hour, in the usual time notation. (Use more paper as needed.)
