Scenario:

Explanation:

Answer:

Scenario: b

Explanation: The bathtub is being drained at a constant rate of 2.5 gallons per minute. So, the amount of water is decreasing, which means that the slope of the line is negative. The graph of the function also shows that there are initially 20 gallons of water in the tub.

Scenario:

Explanation:

Answer:

Scenario: d

Explanation: The tub is being filled at a constant rate of 2.5 gallons per minute, which implies that the amount of water in the tub is increasing, so the line has a positive slope. Based on the graph, the amount of water is also increasing at a faster rate than in choice (a).

Scenario:

Explanation:

Answer:

Scenario: d

Explanation: The tub is being filled at a constant rate of 2.5 gallons per minute, which implies that the amount of water in the tub is increasing, so the line has a positive slope. Based on the graph, the amount of water is also increasing at a faster rate than in choice (a).

Exercise 2.

Read through each of the scenarios, and sketch a graph of a function that models the situation.

a. A messenger service charges a flat rate of $4.95 to deliver a package regardless of the distance to the destination.

Answer:

Answer:

The delivery charge remains constant regardless of the distance to the destination.

b. At sea level, the air that surrounds us presses down on our bodies at 14.7 pounds per square inch (psi). For every 10 meters that you dive under water, the pressure increases by 14.7 psi.

Answer:

The initial value is 14.7 psi. The function increases at a rate of 14.7 psi for every 10 meters, or 1.47 psi per meter.

c. The range (driving distance per charge) of an electric car varies based on the average speed the car is driven. The initial range of the electric car after a full charge is 400 miles. However, the range is reduced by 20 miles for every 10 mph increase in average speed the car is driven.

Answer:

The initial value of the function is 400. The function is decreasing by 20 miles for every 10 mph increase in speed. In other words, the function decreases by 2 miles for every 1 mph increase in speed.

Exercise 3.

The graph below represents the total number of smartphones that are shipped to a retail store over the course of 50 days.

Match each part of the graph (A, B, and C) to its verbal description. Explain the reasoning behind your choice.

i. Half of the factory workers went on strike, and not enough smartphones were produced for normal shipments.

Answer:

C; if half of the workers went on strike, then the number of smartphones produced would be less than normal. The rate of change for C is less than the rate of change for A.

ii. The production schedule was normal, and smartphones were shipped to the retail store at a constant rate.

Answer:

A; if the production schedule is normal, the rate of change of interval A is greater than the rate of change of interval C.

iii. A defective electronic chip was found, and the factory had to shut down, so no smartphones were shipped.

Answer:

B; if no smartphones are shipped to the store, the total number remains constant during that time.

Exercise 4.

The relationship between Jameson’s account balance and time is modeled by the graph below.

a. Write a story that models the situation represented by the graph.

Answer:

Answers will vary.

Jameson was sick and did not work for almost a whole week. Then, he mowed several lawns over the next few days and deposited the money into his account after each job. It rained several days, so instead of working, Jameson withdrew money from his account each day to go to the movies and out to lunch with friends.

b. When is the function represented by the graph increasing? How does this relate to your story?

Answer:

It is increasing between 6 and 9 days. Jameson earned money mowing lawns and made a deposit to his account each day. The money earned for each day was constant for these days. This is represented by a straight line.

c. When is the function represented by the graph decreasing? How does this relate to your story?

Answer:

It is decreasing between 9 and 14 days. Since Days 9–14 are represented by a straight line, this means that Jameson spent the money constantly over these days. Jameson cannot work because it is raining. Perhaps he withdraws money from his account to spend on different activities each day because he cannot work.
