### Eureka Math Precalculus Module 3 Lesson 17 Example Answer Key

Example 1.
Find the domain and range for the following functions:
a. f: R → R given by f(x) = x2
Domain: All real numbers
Range: All real numbers greater than or equal to 0

b. g: R → R given by g(x) = $$\sqrt{x – 2}$$
Domain: Since x – 2 ≥ 0, x ≥ 2
Range: $$\sqrt{x – 2}$$ ≥ 0, so g(x) ≥ 0

c. f(g(x))
f(g(x)) = f($$\sqrt{x – 2}$$) = ($$\sqrt{x – 2}$$)2 = |x – 2|
Domain: x – 2 ≥ 0, so x ≥ 2
Range: |x – 2| ≥ 0, so f(g(x)) ≥ 0

d. g(f(x)) = g(x2) = $$\sqrt{x^{2} – 2}$$
Domain: x2 – 2 ≥ 0, so x ≤ – $$\sqrt{2}$$ or x ≥ $$\sqrt{2}$$
Range: $$\sqrt{x^{2} – 2}$$ ≥ 0, so g(f(x)) ≥ 0

Example 2.
According to the Global Wind Energy Council, a wind turbine can generate about 16,400 kWh of power each day. According to the Alternative Fuels Data Center, an average electric car can travel approximately 100 miles on 34 kWh of energy. An environmental nonprofit organization is interested in analyzing how wind power could offset the energy use of electric vehicles.
a. Write a function that represents the relationship between the number of wind turbines operating in a wind farm and the amount of energy they generate per day (in kilowatt – hours). Define the input and output.
E(t) = 16400t
t: number of turbines operating daily
E(t): energy (in kilowatt – hours) produced daily by the turbines

b. Write a function that represents the relationship between the energy expended by an electric car (in kilowatt – hours) and the number of miles driven.
The relationship between miles driven and energy used is directly proportional, so m = kE.
Since the car drives 100 miles using 34 kWh, 100 = k(34) and k ≈ 2.9.
m(E) = 2.9E
E: amount of energy expended by an average electric car (in kilowatt – hours)
m(E): miles driven by the electric car

c. Write a function that could be used to determine the number of miles that an electric car could drive based on the number of wind turbines operating daily at a wind farm. Interpret this function in context.
m(E(t)) = m(16400t) = 2.9(16400t) = 47560t
For every turbine operating in a wind farm daily, an average electric car can drive 47,560 miles.

d. Determine an appropriate domain and range for part (c). Explain why your domain and range are reasonable in this context.
Domain: Whole numbers—The domain represents the number of turbines, which can only be represented with whole numbers.
Range: Whole numbers—Given the function m(E(t)) = 47560t, the outputs are found by multiplying a whole number by an input that is a whole number, which always produces a whole number. The range represents miles driven, and these values cannot be negative.

e. How many miles of driving could be generated daily by 20 wind turbines in a day?
m(E(20)) = 20 × 47560 = 951 200. 951,200 miles of driving can be generated.

Exercises 2–3
Exercise 2.
A product safety commission is studying the effect of rapid temperature changes on the equipment of skydivers as they descend. The commission has collected data on a typical skydiver during the part of the dive when she has reached terminal velocity (maximum speed) to the time the parachute is released. They know that the terminal velocity of a diver is approximately 56 m/s and that, given the altitude of skydivers at terminal velocity, the temperature decreases at an average rate of 6.4 $$\frac{{ }^{\circ} \mathrm{C}}{\mathbf{k m}}$$.
a. Write a function that represents the altitude of a skydiver experiencing terminal velocity if she reaches this speed at a height of 3,000 m.
h(s) = 3000 – 56t
s: number of seconds spent descending at terminal velocity
h(s): altitude of the skydiver (in meters)

c. Write a function that represents the relationship between the altitude of the skydiver and the temperature if the temperature at 3,000 m is 5.8°C.
t(h) – t(h1) = m(h – h1)
(h1,t(h1)) = (3000,5.8)
m = – 6.4 $$\frac{{ }^{\circ} \mathrm{C}}{\mathbf{k m}}$$ = – 0.0064 $$\frac{{ }^{\circ} \mathrm{C}}{\mathbf{k m}}$$
t(h) – 5.8 = – 0.0064(h – 3000)
t(h) – 5.8 = – 0.0064h + 19.2
t(h) = – 0.0064h + 25
h: altitude of the skydiver (in meters)
t(h): temperature corresponding to the altitude of the skydiver

c. Write a function that could be used to determine the temperature, in degrees Celsius, of the air surrounding a skydiver based on the time she has spent descending at terminal velocity. Interpret the equation in context.
t(h(s)) = t(3000 – 56t) = – 0.0064(3000 – 56t) + 25 ≈ 5.8 + 0.36t
A skydiver begins the portion of her dive at terminal velocity experiencing an air temperature of approximately 5.8°C, and the temperature increases by approximately 0.36°C for each second of descent until she deploys the parachute.

d. Determine an appropriate domain and range for part (c).
Domain: Nonnegative real numbers
Range: Real numbers greater than or equal to 5.8

e. How long would it take a skydiver to reach an altitude where the temperature is 8°C?
For a temperature of 8°C, 8 = 5.8 + 0.36t
0.36t = 2.2, so t ≈ 6.1 sec.

She is trying to determine the relationship between the mass of the spheres and their diameter in meters. She knows that the density of the cement is approximately 2,500 kg/m3.
a. Write a function that represents the relationship between the volume of a sphere and its diameter. Explain how you determined the equation.
V(d) = $$\frac{1}{6}$$ πd3
The volume of a sphere is equal to
$$\frac{4}{3}$$ πr3 = $$\frac{4}{3}$$ π($$\frac{d}{2}$$)3 = $$\frac{1}{6}$$ πd3

b. Write a function that represents the relationship between the mass and the volume of the sphere. Explain how you determined the function.
m(V) = 2500V
Mass = density × volume = 2500 × V

c. Write a function that could be used to determine the mass of one of the cement spheres based on its diameter. Interpret the equation in context.
m(V(d)) = m($$\frac{1}{6}$$ πd3 ) = 2500($$\frac{1}{6}$$ πd3 ) = $$\frac{2500}{6}$$ πd3
The numerical value of the mass of one of the cement spheres is equal to approximately 1,300 times the value of the cubed diameter (measured in meters).

d. Determine an appropriate domain and range for part (c).
Domain: Nonnegative real numbers
Range: Nonnegative real numbers

e. What is the approximate mass of a sphere with a diameter of 0.9 m?
m(V(0.9)) = $$\frac{2500}{6}$$ π(0.9)3 ≈ 950. The mass of the sphere is approximately 950 kg.
