Problem 1

A student is asked to solve

2x – 5 < 5x – 11
for x and does the following:
2x – 5x – 5 < 5x – 5x – 11
-3x – 5 < -11
-3x – 5 + 5 < -11 + 5
-3x < 6
x < -2
At what steps did the student make a mistake? Explain in your own words what went wrong
and why it is wrong. Make sure that you analyze the entire problem as there may be multiple
mistakes.
What is the correct answer?
Problem 2
The cost C of producing x number of scientific calculators is given by : C = 4.50x + 3000
and the revenue R from selling them is given by: R = 16.50x.
a) Find how many calculators must be sold to break even by setting C=R and solving
for x.
b) Find how much money is needed to produce the break-even number of calculators.

A student is asked to solve the equation
3(x – 3v) = 5 + 7v
for v and does the following:
3x – 9v = 5 + 7v
-9v = 5 + 7v – 3x
v=
5 + 7v -3x
-9
