Just a little stuck, can you help me out?
1.)Sales (in millions) of a company are modeled by the expression for x items produced and sold (in millions). If 4 (million)items are produced and sold, what would the sales be?
2.)The sum of four consecutive odd
integers is 336. Set up an equation AND solve for all of the integers.
Two ways to approach this.
336/4 = 84 making the 4 consecutive odd numbers 81, 83, 85 and 87.
Alternatively:
x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) + (x + 6) = 336
I'll let you solve for the answer.
Truth be told I have worked at this and I don't understand. I came up with x =42 but it wants me to set up an equation with all the integers. And what do you mean by and how did you get to the alternative way? I really would like to understand this please help.
