3.

The sales of various types of lawn and garden tools
vary according to the season. At a certain home improvement store, the monthly sales H of
garden hoes (hoes sold per month) declines from July to October whereas the monthly sales of lawn
rakes R (rakes sold per month) increase during this same interval. The sales of these two
items during the calendar months JulyOctober are modeled by the equations:
where
t is the month (t = 7 corresponds to July). In which month does the number of
rakes sold equal the number of hoes sold?
a.  July  b.  November  c.  August  d.  September  e.  October 


4.

elimination.


5.

constant.
a.  plane speed = 94 mph; wind speed =
14 mph  b.  plane speed =
71 mph; wind speed = 14 mph  c.  plane speed =
71 mph; wind speed = 83 mph  d.  plane speed =
109 mph; wind speed = 14 mph  e.  plane speed =
109 mph; wind speed = 101 mph 


7.

An investor has $150,000 to invest in two types of
investments. Type A pays 5% annually and type B pays 6% annually. To have a wellbalanced portfolio,

allocated to type A investments and at least onethird of the portfolio is to be allocated to type B
investments. What is the optimal amount that should be invested in each investment?
a.  $150,000 in type A (5%), $0 in type B
(6%)  b.  $50,000 in type A (5%), $100,000 in type B
