All mathematical steps must be formatted using the equation editor.

Your donut shop has perfected a method for the perfect glazed icing by slowly mixing whole milk to confectioner’s sugar while exposed to low heat. Your mixing tank starts with 10 fluid ounces of milk and 10 ounces of sugar. You continue adding sugar at a rate of 10 ounces per minute and milk at 1 ounce per minute, as depicted by the two equations below:
S equals 10 plus 10 t
M equals 10 plus 1 t
Where S represents the number of ounces of sugar, M represents the ounces of milk, and t represents the time in minutes. The ideal icing will have a ratio of 8 ounces of sugar per ounce of milk.
Assessment Instructions

Analyze the statement made by the scarecrow.

In the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, upon being presented with a Th.D. (Doctor of Thinkology), the Scarecrow proudly exclaims, “The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side.” Analyze the statement made by the Scarecrow. Present your analysis and give a complete description of the triangles that satisfy the statement.
Find another example of math being used in:
Movies, television, popular culture, art, music and harmonics, scientific research papers, newspapers or magazine articles, nature and natural phenomena, voting, national security, manufacturing, logistics, transportation, healthcare, business, economics, or some noteworthy or pivotal historical moment.
Research and explain whether or not the math was used correctly.

List the city where the athlete lives.

You must show all of your work, not just the answers, for every unit conversion and mathematical problem.
Choose a professional athlete and list his/her name and sport.
How tall is the athlete in feet? (example – 6 ft. 2 in) Explain the unit conversion and mathematical procedures used to determine the athlete’s height in only inches, only meters, and only centimeters.
How much does the athlete weigh in pounds? Explain the unit conversion and mathematical procedures used to determine the athlete’s weight in kilograms.
List his or her annual salary from last year.
Explain the unit conversion and mathematical procedures used to determine how much the athlete earned per week.
After finding out how many games he or she played last year, explain the unit conversion and mathematical procedures used to determine how much he or she earned per game played last year.
Assume that he or she practiced or trained 20 hours for every game and played every game. Including the game time and training time, explain the unit conversion and mathematical procedures used to determine his or her hourly salary.
Consider if the athlete transferred their annual salary to another country. Explain the unit conversion and mathematical procedures used to determine the athlete’s annual salary in another currency. You must identify the currency conversion used.
List the city where the athlete lives.
What is the average summer temperature in Fahrenheit in the city where the professional athlete lives? Explain the unit conversion and mathematical procedures used to determine the temperature in Celsius.
What is the average winter temperature in Fahrenheit in the city where the professional athlete lives? Explain the unit conversion and mathematical procedures used to determine the temperature in Celsius.
Look for information about the price to attend one of his or her professional games.
What is the cost of the most expensive ticket to attend one of his or her games?
What is the cost of the least expensive ticket to attend one of his or her games?
Explain the mathematical procedures used to determine the average cost of the most expensive ticket and least expensive ticket.
How many people attended the first game of the most recent season?
If each person paid the average price for a ticket, explain the mathematical procedures used to determine how much money the game brought in that night.

Compute the mean, median, and mode for the ages of men arrested.

Download the file, Arrests by Age and Gender(Excel spreadsheet), which recorded the age and gender of people who were arrested in one city for small quantities of marijuana in 2000.
Compute the mean, median, and mode for the ages of men arrested. Compute the mean, median, and mode for the ages of women arrested. Do the statistics suggest a difference in the average age of arrest for men versus women?
Determine the percentage of men and the percentage of women in the sample. Does there appear to be a significant difference?
Organize the data by age group (under 15, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, etc.) and construct a frequency distribution. Use the frequency distribution to construct a histogram for each gender.

A car dealer offers a 6% discount off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price

A car dealer offers a 6% discount off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of dollars for any new car on their lot. At the same time, the manufacturer offers a $4500 rebate for each purchase of a new car. Write a function r(x) that represents the price of the car after the rebate only. Write a function d(x) that represenst the price the of the car after the discount only. Find the functions r(d(x)) and d(r(x)) and interpret the meaning of each. What would be the better deal? Rebate first then discount or discount first and then rebate. Would this always be the case? Explain your reasoning.

This week you will learn about quadratic equations. This is one of the most common equations in mathematics, with a number of applications in real-world situations.
Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:
Write about a problem you have encountered or could encounter where a quadratic equation is useful.
What is the solution to the problem you discussed?
Respond to these post 75 word each
I would hate to fit into a stereotype but thankfully in the state of Texas we are fortunate enough to have open carry. Prior to the new law kicking in, I did seek proper instruction before it became so accessible. This being said, I went regularly to a shooting range that not only explained the laws, but also provided us with proper technique. From proximity to types of ammo and even targets, we were given certain instruction that could be translated into a quadratic formula. Having small children, I wanted to make sure they were protected in case of a break-in at our home. We were also told that there is a difference from shooting at a range than what a real-life scenario would look like, and that is where our family ranch comes into play. I know with the weather cooling down, I am invited to a yearly hunt to gather our families holiday meal. Although I cannot bring myself to hunting, I do get to see the equations change a bit with a live target being a factor against the norm.
In the past discussion posts, I have been relating the math equations to job duties I do on a daily basis at my workplace, relating the content to an exercise I do on a daily basis is what helped me fully understand the course work, Unfortunately, I could not relate the quadratic equations we practiced on class this week to a work-related exercise to help me understand the content, Admittedly this is making it a little hard to understand and I had to work extra hard to learn the content of this week’s lessons. even though I can’t find an example from my own experiences that does not mean that they are not useed so i did some ertra research to come up with the best example to help me understand quadratic equation and what iI came up with was calculating the speed of a kayak going up and down a river. An example is that the river is moving at a speed of 2km/hour if the kayak goes against the current at 15 km and it takes him 3 hours there and back. The equation would be 3 hours = 15 / (x – 2) + 15 / (x + 2). when you turn this into a quadratic equation it becomes 3x^2 – 30x -12 = 0. with x = the speed of 10.39km/hr
