Read the following instructions in order to complete this assignment and review the example of how to complete the math required for this assignment:
Read problem 46 on page 240 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra. (SEE BELOW)
Assign a variable to each type of rocker Ozark Furniture makes.
Write a linear inequality which incorporates
the given information of total board feet and the board feet required
for each type of rocker.
On scratch paper, draw a graph of the
inequality so that you have this visual to go by as you discuss the
graph in your writing. A scanned copy of this graph may be attached
with your essay, but is not required.
Write a two- to three-page paper that is formatted in APA style and according to the Math Writing Guide.
Format your math work as shown in the Instructor Guidance and be
concise in your reasoning. In the body of your essay, do the following:
Demonstrate your solution to the above problem, making sure to include all mathematical work.
Describe what this graph looks like. Include
information about the intercepts, the type of line needed, direction of
the line, and region(s) shaded to fulfill the inequality. Any details
which are pertinent to know about the graph should be mentioned.
Evaluate the findings in this graph. Pick a
point in the shaded area and give its coordinates, and then discuss what
those numbers mean in terms of rockers and board feet of lumber. Pick a
point outside of the shaded area and do the same thing. Pick a point
right on the line and discuss the same details. Be specific.
Apply the linear inequality to solve the
following problem: a chain furniture store faxes an order for 175 modern
rocking chairs and 125 classic rocking chairs. Will Ozark Furniture be
able to fill this order with the current lumber on hand? If yes, how
much lumber will they have left? If no, how much more lumber would they
need to fill the order? Explain your answers.
46 on page 240 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra.
Maple rockers. Ozark Furniture Company can obtain at most
3000 board feet of maple lumber for making its classic and modern maple
rocking chairs. A classic maple rocker requires 15 board feet of maple,
and a modern rocker requires 12 board feet of maple. Write an inequality
that limits the possible number of maple rockers of each type that can
be made, and graph the inequality in the first quadrant.
