C. (c) For what *x* values is the graph decreasing? Write your answer as an inequality.

âˆ’4

D. (d) Estimate the x-intercepts. (If an answer does not exist, enter DNE.)

(x, y) = (smaller x-value)

(x, y) = (larger x-value)

E. (e) Estimate the y-intercept. (x, y) =

F. (f) Estimate = f(4).

2.)

Use the table to find the horizontal and vertical intercepts

Horizontal intercept (x,y) = () (smaller x-value)

Horizontal intercept (x,y) = () (larger x-value)

Vertical intercept (x,y) = ()

4.)

The total number of people, in thousands, who were below the poverty level can be modeled by

N(t) = 155(t âˆ’ 9)2 + 33417 where N(t) represents the total number of people in the United States who were below the poverty level, in thousands, t years since 1990.â€

(a) How many people were below the poverty level in 1999?

In 1999 there were about thousand people below the poverty level in the United States.

(b) Find N(15) and explain its meaning.

In there were about thousand people below the poverty level in the United States.

(c) Sketch a graph of this model.

(d) Estimate the vertex of this model and explain its meaning.

According to this model, in there were about thousand people below the poverty level in the United States which is a —Select— maximum minimum .

(e) Use your graph to estimate when the number of people in the United States below the poverty level was 43 million.

According to the graph, in about and again in the number of people in the United States below the poverty level was 43 million.

(f) If the domain for this model is [3, 18], find the range.

[33,417, 45,972]

[0, 33,417]

[3, 18]

[0, âˆž]

[31,500, 46,500]

[0, 320]

(âˆ’âˆž, 20]

(âˆ’âˆž, âˆž)

Range:

(âˆ’âˆž, 0]

[1, 11]

[0, âˆž)

[0, 320]

7.)

The total number of people, in thousands, age 65 years old and over who were below the poverty level can be modeled by N(t) = âˆ’59(t âˆ’ 12)2 + 3890

where N(t) represents the total number of people 65 years old and over in the United States who were below the poverty level, in thousands, t years since 1980.â€

(a) How many people 65 years old and over were below the poverty level in 2000?

In 2000 there were people 65 years old and over below the poverty level.

(b) When were there 1 million people 65 years old and over below the poverty level? (Hint: 1 million = 1000 thousand)

According to this model, there were 1 million people 65 years old and over below the poverty level in the years ___ (smaller value) and ____ (larger value).

(c) What is the vertex of this model, and what does it represent?

In about there were people 65 years old and over below the poverty level. This was the maximum number of people around this time.
