The sum of the smaller and twice the larger number is 27. Name the numbers. Lesson Goal: Solve interest problems using a system of linear equations. Using the Language of Investments Review: Formula Interest: Interest Principal Rate Time Investment problems use a variety of words to describe interest, principal, and rate. Here are some of the words you should associate with each: Principal always refers to the starting amount of money that is invested, deposited, or borrowed. Rate is sometimes referred to as interest, but it is easily identified as the rate because it is always expressed as a percentage. Interest is the amount of money that is earned by the investment. It can be referred to as the yield, dividend, growth, increase, return, earnings, or income. 28. Mr. Kirchner invested $8000, part earning 8% interest and the rest earning 10% interest per year. How much did he invest at each rate if his annual yield was $760? 9 Algebra I – Turner Classwork – 7 29. Mrs. Mooney wants to earn at least $288 in annual dividends. She plans to invest a certain sum of money at 12% and 3 times as much at 8%. What is the least amount she can invest at 12% to accomplish this goal? 30. Mrs. Miller deposited $1400, part at 9% and the rest at 12% annual interest. If both deposits earn the same annual income, how much has been deposited at each rate? 31. Miss Dilmer took out two loans to pay for a car. One loan required her to pay 10% annual interest while the other required her to pay 15% annual interest. Miss Dilmer borrowed $1400 more at the lower rate than she did at the higher rate. If the annual interest on the loan at 10% was $25 less than the interest on the loan at 15%, how much did she borrow at each rate? 10 Algebra I – Turner Classwork – 7 Lesson Goal: Solve word problems involving wind and water currents using a system of linear equations. Wind and Water Currents Application: Water Currents: When traveling upstream, the actual rate a boat is traveling equals the rate of the boat in still water minus the rate of the current. When traveling downstream, the actual rate a boat is traveling equals the rate of the boat in still water plus the rate of the current. Example: If Bob can row his boat at 8 km/hr in still water and he is rowing upstream against a current traveling at 3 km/h, then his boat is actually traveling up the river at 8 3 5 km/h. Example: If Bob can row his boat at 8 km/hr in still water and he is rowing downstream with a current traveling at 3 km/h, then his boat is actually traveling up the river at 8 3 11 km/h. Application: Wind: When traveling against the wind (called flying with a headwind), the actual rate an airplane is traveling (called the groundspeed) equals the rate of the airplane in still air (called the airspeed) minus the rate of the wind. When traveling with the wind (called flying with a tailwind), the actual rate an airplane is traveling equals the rate of the airplane in still air plus the rate of the wind. Example: If a plane travels at a still air rate (or airspeed) of 300 km/h against a 5 km/h head wind, then the actual rate the plane is traveling (or groundspeed) is 300 5 295 km/h. Example: If a plane travels at a still air rate (or airspeed) of 300 km/h with a 5 km/h tail wind, then the actual rate the plane is traveling (or groundspeed) is 300 5 305 km/h. 32. An airplane travels 1800 miles in 3 hours flying with the wind. On the return trip, flying against the wind, it takes 4 hours. Find the rate of the wind and the rate of the plane in still air? 11 Algebra I – Turner Classwork – 7 33. A barge travels 24 miles up the Ohio River in 3 hours. The return trip takes 2/3 that amount of time. Find the rate of the barge in still water and the rate of the current. 34. Len is planning a five-hour flight up to the mountains and back. He knows that he can fly in still air at 100 mi/h and finds that he has a 10 mph tail wind as he heads towards the mountains. How much time can he spend flying towards the mountains before he must turn back? 35. A rowing team rows downstream for half an hour, turns around, and rows back to their starting point in an hour and a quarter. If the current flows at 3 miles per hour, how fast does the team row, and how far did they travel downstream? 12 Algebra I – Turner Classwork – 7 Lesson Goal: Solve distance-rate-time word problems using a system of linear equations. 36. Two ships are sailing toward each other from an initial distance of 120 nautical miles apart. The rate of one ship is 4 knots greater than the rate of the other ship. If they meet in 3 hours, find the rate of each ship. 37. A motorist traveling 55 miles per hour is being pursued by a highway patrol car traveling 65 miles per hour. If the patrol car is 4 miles behind the motorist, how long will it take the patrol car to overtake the motorist? 38. Sally started home from school riding her bike at 20 mph. Part way home she hit a pothole and got a flat tire. So she walked her bike the rest of the way home at 2 mph. It took her an hour and 30 minutes to get home. If she lives 9 miles from school, for how many minutes did she ride her bike? 13 Algebra I – Turner Classwork – 7 14 Algebra I – Turner Classwork – 7 39. The steamship Empress Anne sailing due West at 32 knots passed the freighter Oregon which was sailing due East at 24 knots. In how many hours after the meeting will the ships be 448 nautical miles apart? Lesson Goal: Solve word problems involving mixtures using a single equation or a system of linear equations. 40.
