Step 1 - Solve parts a and b of problem 103 and problem 104 below.

Problem 103

Sailboat stability. To be considered safe for ocean sailing, the capsize screening value C should be less than 2
(www.sailing.com). For a boat with a beam (or width) b in feet and displacement d in pounds, C is determined
by the function

a) Find the capsize screening value for the Tartan 4100, which has a displacement of 23,245 pounds
and a beam of 13.5 feet.
b)Solve this formula for d.

Problem 104

Sailboat speed. The sail area-displacement ratio S provides a measure of the sail power available to drive
a boat. For a boat with a displacement of d pounds and a sail area of A square feet S is determined by the
function

a) Find S to the nearest tenth for the Tartan 4100, which has a sail area of 810 square feet
and a displacement of 23,245 pounds.
b)Write d in terms of A and S.
Step 2 - Write a two to three page paper that is formatted in the style according to the attached PDF example
and be concise in your reasoning. In the body of your essay, please make sure to include:

o   An explanation of what the parts of the formula mean before using it to get your answers.
Study the Instructor Guidance examples to learn how to solve the formula for another
variable.

o   Your solution to the above problems, making sure to include all mathematical work.

o   A discussion of how and why these concepts are important in the “real world.” Describe
another situation that could be evaluated using these concepts.

The paper must be at least two pages in length and formatted according to APA style. Cite your resources in
text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford
Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
