  • A diver stands at the very end of a diving board (#431)
    A diver stands at the very end of a diving board before beginning a dive. The deflecton (d) of the board at a position (s) feet from the stationary end is given by d=cs2(3L-s) for 0 is greater than or equal to s is greater than or equal to L, where L is the length of the board and c is a positive constant that depends on the weight of the diver and on the physica properties of the board. Suppose the board is 10 ft long.

    a) If the deflection at the end of the board is 1 ft, find c
    b) Show that the deflection is .5 foot somewhere between s=6.5 and s=6.6

  • Three students in an outdoor pursuits program (#3196)
    Three students in an outdoor pursuits program collaborated to write an adventure travel guidebook for Alberta and BC. Two local publishers are interested in marketing and publishing it and both anticipate retailing the book for $20. Publisher "A" offers a straight royalty of 10% (on the retail price) on all book sales. Publisher "B" offers an 8% royalty for any books sold up to 5000 copies and will then increase the royalty to 15% for any copies sold in excess of 5000.

    a) Describe the type of function
    b) Find the functions A(x) and B(x) - notice that function A(x) is apiecewise defined function.
    c) Let x be the number of books sold and let A(x) give the income under plan "A" and B(x) give the income under plan "B". Graph functions on the interval 0,10000
