State sales tax is based on retail price. An item
that sells for $197.99 has a sales tax of $11.4. Find a mathematical model that gives the amount of
sales tax y in terms of the retail price x. Use the model to find the sales tax on a
$639.99 purchase. (Round your answer to four decimal places.)


17.

particle that can be moved by a stream varies approximately directly as the square of the velocity of
the stream.
A stream with a velocity of mile per hour can
move coarse sand particles about 0.03 inch in diameter. Approximate the velocity required to carry
particles 0.25 inch in diameter. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

resistance of 64.17 ohms per thousand feet, what length of #28 copper wire will produce a resistance
of 33.5 ohms?
a.  About 522 mi/h  b.  About 517 mi/h  c.  About 507
mi/h  d.  About 527 mi/h  e.  About 537 mi/h 


19.
