2 A gas company has the following rate schedule for natural gas usage in single-family residences:



Monthly service charge                  $8.80


Per therm service charge

1st 25 therms                      $0.6686/therm

Over 25 therms                  $0.85870/therm


What is the charge for using 25 therms in one month?

What is the charge for using 45 therms in one month?

Construct a function that gives the monthly charge C for x therms of gas.













3 The wind chill factor represents the equivalent air temperature at a standard wind speed that would produce the same heat loss as the given temperature and wind speed. One formula for computing the equivalent temperature is



W(t) =  


where v represents the wind speed (in meters per second) and t represents the air temperature . Compute the wind chill for an air temperature of 15°C and a wind speed of 12 meters per second. (Round the answer to one decimal place.)






4 Complete the following:


(a)           Use the Leading Coefficient Test to determine the graph’s end behavior.

(b)           Find the x-intercepts. State whether the graph crosses the x-axis or touches the x-axis and turns around at each intercept.

(c)           Find the y-intercept.

f(x) = x2(x + 2)




















5 For the data set shown by the table,


 a. Create a scatter plot for the data. (You do not need to submit the scatter plot)

 b. Use the scatter plot to determine whether an exponential function or a logarithmic function is the best choice for modeling the data.
