(13)  The weight of the muscles of a man is a function of his body weight x and can be expressed as W(x) = 0.35x. Determine the domain of this function.       Solution

(14)  The distance of an object falling is a function of time t and can be expressed as s(t) = −16t2Graph the function and determine if it is one-to-one.       Solution

(15)  The total cost of airfare on a given route is comprised of the base cost C and the fuel surcharge S in rupee. Both C and S are functions of the mileage m; C(m) = 0.4m + 50 and S(m) = 0.03m. Determine a function for the total cost of a ticket in terms of the mileage and find the airfare for flying 1600 miles.                     Solution

(16)  A salesperson whose annual earnings can be represented by the function A(x) = 30, 000 + 0.04x, where x is the rupee value of the merchandise he sells. His son is also in sales and his earnings are represented by the function S(x) = 25, 000 + 0.05x. Find (A + S)(x) and determine the total family income if they each sell Rupees 1, 50, 00, 000 worth of merchandise.        Solution

(17)  The function for exchanging American dollars for Singapore Dollar on a given day is f(x) = 1.23x, where x represents the number of American dollars. On the same day the function for exchanging Singapore Dollar to Indian Rupee is g(y) = 50.50y, where y represents the number of Singapore dollars. Write a function which will give the exchange rate of American dollars in terms of Indian rupee.               Solution

(18)  The owner of a small restaurant can prepare a particular meal at a cost of Rupees 100. He estimates that if the menu price of the meal is x rupees, then the number of customers who will order that meal at that price in an evening is given by the function D(x) = 200−x. Express his day revenue, total cost and profit on this meal as functions of x.               Solution

(19)  The formula for converting from Fahrenheit to Celsius temperatures is y = (5x/9) − (160/9). Find the inverse of this function and determine whether the inverse is also a function               Solution
