DESCRIBING PROFITS Management originally predicted that the profits from the sales of a new product would be approximated by the graph of the function shown. The actual profits are shown by the function along with a verbal description. Use the concepts of transformations of graphs to write in terms of (a) The profits were only three-fourths as large as expected. (b) The profits were consistently $10,000 greater than predicted. (c) There was a two-year delay in the introduction of the product. After sales began, profits grew as expected.

College Algebra, Week 1 (Thursday only) In class on Thursday, we only went over linear equations. Simple enough, you move all variables to one side (x) and what you do to one side, you do to the other. −8x+6=22 Ex 16. −6=−6 −8x=16 X=16/−8 X=−2 Example 16 from the book shows us that to find x, we must move 6 to the right side of the equals sign by subtracting 6...
