The estimated budget for a new zoo honoring Dr. Seuss is $50 million. The planning budget contains three categories: acquisition of animals, a, facilities construction, c, and surplus, s. The amount allocated to the construction of facilities was equal to the total of the acquisition of the animals and the surplus combined. The budget committee estimated that 15% of the total budget would be surplus. The following linear system represents this information. a + c + s = 50 (in millions) a+s=c 0.15(a+ c + s) = s a. Solve the linear system to find the amount budgeted for each category.

b. A corporate sponsor donated $10 million to the Seuss Fund for advertising and for the ceremonies to celebrate the opening of the zoo. The gift was deposited into a three-year certificate of deposit at a rate of 6% compounded quarterly. What is the total amount of money available at the end of three years?

When x = 25, so in 1995 the population will be 14,125.

b.

I used my calculator to graph P = 6.4t 2 + 135t + 6750. Then, I used 2nd GRAPH to use the Table function. I searched until I found where y = 14,125 and located the x-coordinate.

8.

a.

y = $97.63(1.054) x

b.

Yes, Chris has enough money to purchase the stereo system. I substituted 16 in for x (this represents Chris' age). When I solved the equation, I was able to see that y = $226.48, which is more than $209.99. Thus (or ), Chris has more than enough money to purchase the stereo system.
