Answers will vary. For example: You can rent a paddleboard for $25 per hour with a water shoe purchase of $75. If you spent $200, how many hours did you rent the paddle board for?

You rented the paddle board for 5 hours.

$a$ = 1 U.S. dollar, and $b$ = 1.21 Canadian dollars, the ratio is 1 to 1.21; or 1:1.21; or $\frac{1}{1.21}$ .

With $a$ = 170 pounds on Earth, and $b$ = 64 pounds on Mars, the ratio is 170 to 64; or 170:64; or $\frac{170}{64}$.

(0, 20) is the $y\text{-intercept}$ and represents that there were 20 teachers at Jones High School in 1990. There is no $x\text{-intercept}$.

2.

In the first 5 years the slope is 2; this means that on average, the school gained 2 teachers every year between 1990 and 1995. Between 1995 and 2000, the slope is 4; on average the school gained 4 teachers every year. Then the slope is 0 between 2000 and 2005 meaning the number of teachers remained the same. There was a decrease in teachers between 2005 and 2010, represented by a slope of –2. Finally, the slope is 4 between 2010 and 2020, which indicates that on average the school gained 4 teachers every year.

Answers will vary. Jones High School was founded in 1990 and hired 2 teachers per year until 1995, when they had an increase in students and they hired 4 teachers per year for the next 5 years. Then there was a hiring freeze, and no teachers were hired between 2000 and 2005. After the hiring freeze, the student population decreased, and they lost 2 teachers per year until 2010. Another surge in student population meant Jones High School hired 4 new teachers per year until 2020 when they had 80 teachers at the school.

The slope, 4, means that the weekly cost, $C$, increases by $4 when the number of pizzas sold, $p$, increases by 1. The $C$-intercept means that when the number of pizzas sold is 0, the weekly cost is $25.

With $a=$ the number of bags of apples sold, and $b=$ the number of bunches of bananas sold, the objective function is $P=4a+6b$.

The constraints are $a+b\le 20$
and $3a+5b\le 70$.
The summary is: $P=4a+6b$, $a+b\le 20$, and $3a+5b\le 70$.

The constraints are:

$15\le x\le 22$

$13\le y\le 19$

So the system is:

$T=20x+28y$

$15\le x\le 22$

$13\le y\le 19$

$15\le x\le 22$

$13\le y\le 19$

So the system is:

$T=20x+28y$

$15\le x\le 22$

$13\le y\le 19$

The maximum value for the profit $P$ occurs when $x=15$ and $y=5$. This means that to maximize their profit, the Robotics Club should sell 15 bags of apples and 5 bunches of bananas every day.

This is not a correct solution strategy. The negative sign is not distributed correctly in the second line of the solution strategy. The second line should read $8x+7-2x+9=22-4x+4$.

Yes he can, but barely. At 37 miles per gallon, Albert can drive $499.5$ miles. While in theory he can make it, he probably should fill up with gasoline somewhere along the way!
