(There is no real number that when squared 1 100,000 (c)  5 70. (a) 6 1 1 100,000 (c)  6 1 gives a value of 49 , since 7 and  7  give a value 2 2 of 49, not 49 . The answer is a complex number, which will not be addressed in this course.) In a similar fashion, we can compute the following: Cube Roots 3 125  5 , since 53  125 . 3 125  5 , since  5   125 . 3 Fourth Roots 4 10, 000  10 , since 104  10, 000 . 4 10, 000 is not a real number.

SECTION 1.5 Order of Operations Section 1.5: Order of Operations  Evaluating Expressions Using the Order of Operations Evaluating Expressions Using the Order of Operations Rules for the Order of Operations: 1) Operations that are within parentheses and other grouping symbols are performed first. These operations are performed in the order established in the following steps. If grouping symbols are nested, evaluate the expression within the innermost grouping symbol first and work outward. 2) Exponential expressions and roots are evaluated first. 3) Multiplication and division are performed next, moving left to right and performing these operations in the order that they occur. 4) Addition and subtraction are performed last, moving left to right and performing these operations in the order that they occur. Upon removing all of the grouping symbols, repeat the steps 2 through 4 until the final result is obtained. MATH 1300 Fundamentals of Mathematics 75

Your employer will pay a maximum of \$100 per week for the rental. (Assume that the car rental company rounds to the nearest mile when computing the mileage cost.) (a) Write an inequality that models this situation. (b) What is the maximum number of miles that you can drive and still be reimbursed in full? 47. 5  8 x  4 x  1 48. x  10  8 x  9 49. 3(4  5 x)  2(7  x) 50. 4(3  2 x)  ( x  20) 51. 5 6  1 x  1 ( x  5) 3 2 52. 2 5 x  1    1 10  x 2 3 53. 10  3x  2  8 54. 9  2 x  3  13 55. 4  3  7 x  17 62. Joseph rents a catering hall to put on a dinner theatre. He pays \$225 to rent the space, and pays an additional \$7 per plate for each dinner served. He then sells tickets for \$15 each. (a) Joseph wants to make a profit. Write an inequality that models this situation. (b) How many tickets must he sell to make a profit? 63. A phone company has two long distance plans as follows: Plan 1: \$4.95/month plus 5 cents/minute Plan 2: \$2.75/month plus 7 cents/minute How many minutes would you need to talk each month in order for Plan 1 to be more costeffective than Plan 2? 56. 19  5  4 x  3 57. 2 3  4  3 x1510  5 58. 3 4  562 x   5 3 Which of the following inequalities can never be true? 59.

So far, he has obtained scores of 84, 89, and 90. What range of scores could he receive on the fourth exam and still obtain a “B” for the semester? (Note: The minimum cutoff for a “B” is 80 percent, and an average of 90 or above will be considered an “A”.) (c) 3  x  7 (d) 5  x  3 MATH 1300 Fundamentals of Mathematics 95
