A crystal ball with a diameter of 6 inches is being packaged for shipment. If the crystal ball is placed inside a circular cylinder with radius 3 inches and height 6 inches, how much volume will need to be filled with padding? (The volume of a sphere with radius r is 4/3πr3, and the volume of a right circular cylinder with radius r and height is πr2h.) Use "pi" for π.

If you invest \$8000 into an account with an annual interest rate of r compounded annually, the amount of money you have in the account after one year is:

A=8000+8000r

Write this formula again with the right side in factored form.

Find the amount of money in this account at the end of one year if the interest rate is 19%.

There will be \$ in his count at the end of year one.

A gun fires a bullet almost straight up from the edge of a 140-foot cliff. If the bullet leaves the gun with a speed of 556 feet per second, its height at time t is given by h(t)=−16t2+556t+140, measured from the ground below the cliff.

When will the bullet land on the ground below the cliff? (Hint: What is its height when it lands? Remember that we are measuring from the ground below, not from the cliff.)

The corporate profits for various U.S. industries vary from year to year. An approximate model for profits of U.S. "communications companies" during a given year between 1990 and 1997 is given by

P=−3400|x−5.5|+36000

where P is the annual profits (in millions of dollars) and x is the number of years after 1990. Use the model to determine the years in which profits of "communication companies" were \$31.5 billion (\$31,500 million).

In the years and the communication companies had profits of \$31.5 billion.
