Okay, so what I would do is begin by setting: m = 13 or: 13 = -(1/2)|s - 55| + 20 Subtract 20 from both sides: -7 = -(1/2)|s - 55| Multiply both sides by -2: 14 = |s - 55| This will be true if: s - 55 = ±14 Add 55 to both sides: s = 55 ± 14 So, we have: s = 41, 69 Let's let R be the retail price and W be the wholesale price. From the given information, we are tole the relationship between the two is: R = 1.75W + 6 = (7/4)W + 6 We need to solve this for W, to get W as a function of R. So subtract 6 from both sides: R - 6 = (7/4)W Multiply both sides by 4/7: W = (4/7)(R - 6) Now, we have a formula we can use to answer the given question. We are told: R = 146 Hence: W = (4/7)(146 - 6) = (4/7)(140) = (4/7)(20*7) = 4*20 = 80 Thus, we find that the wholesale price of a coat that retails for $146 is $80.

Not that derailing thread is my specialty but I could have swear I saw 25.jpg a picture of a dead deer. How do you search for an image actually?

You'd probably have to be able to query the database to search for something like that...I don't get anything when I use the forum search, nor when I use google with the site: modifier.

Oh, PM me the link please. I saw it randomly while logged out. I wasn't sure since it was only a thumbnail. Edit: Missread, I thought you found it using Google.

@MarkFL 1) T 2) T 3) T 4) F 5) T 6) F 7) T 8) ? (-infinity,infinity)? 9) [0,Infinity) 10) A) [4,-4] , B) ??? , C) [1,-2] 11) ^2Root B x ^2RootAC 12) Yes Root X^2 = x , x*x = X^2 13) ?? 14) x(ax+b) 15) (3a^2+2b^3)(9a+4b^3) 16) ? I get to x(x^2-8x+19) and that's about as far as I can get unless I use the quadratic equation. 17) ??? 18)x^4y^6(X+Y)(X-Y) (I feel this is wrong haha) 19) ^2root 2, -2 20) F (imaginary is (-) right?) 21) T 22) F 23) ? (not sure) 24) T (I think?) A) x = -b/a B) ???? C) X = 9 or -5 25) ? No idea how to get that.

I just realize something important! I can actually ask you how to write down the language properly in mathematical symbolism for any logical intuition I have.

@MarkFL Well I didn't do as bad as I thought I did at least haha got some work still do to, going to need help on more of the word problems soon T.T
