• Water tank A has 220 gallons of water and is being drained at a constant rate of 5 gallons per minute.• Water tank B has 180 gallons of water and is being drained at a constant rate of 3 gallons per minute.
Part
How much time, in minutes, do water tank A and water tank B have to be drained in order for them to have the same amount of water?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:  In 20 minutes, tanks A and B will each have 120 gallons remaining in them.

Step-by-step explanation:

The equation, the amount at which they will be equal, represents the given starting amounts minus the gal/min times the unknown time in minutes, m.

220 - 5m = 180 - 3m Subtract 180 from both sides; add 5m to both sides.

220-180 -5m +5m = 180-180 +5m - 3m  Combine like terms

40 = 2m  Divide both sides by 2

20 = m

Check: Substitute 20 for m in the equation

220 - 5(20) = 180 - 3(20)

220 - 100 = 180 -60

120 = 120   True!

Consider the following analogy: You are a hiring manager for a large company. For every job applicant, you must decide whether to hire the applicant based on your assessment of whether he or she will be an asset to the company. Suppose your null hypothesis is that the applicant will not be an asset to the company. As in hypothesis testing, there are four possible outcomes of your decision: (1) You do not hire the applicant when the applicant will not be an asset to the company, (2) you hire the applicant when the applicant will not be an asset to the company, (3) you do not hire the applicant when the applicant will be an asset to the company, and (4) you hire the applicant when the applicant will be an asset to the company. 1. Which of the following outcomes corresponds to a Type I error? A. You hire the applicant when the applicant will not be an asset to the company. B. You do not hire the applicant when the applicant will be an asset to the company. C. You do not hire the applicant when the applicant will not be an asset to the company. D. You hire the applicant when the applicant will be an asset to the company. 2. Which of the following outcomes corresponds to a Type II error? A. You hire the applicant when the applicant will not be an asset to the company. B. You hire the applicant when the applicant will be an asset to the company. C. You do not hire the applicant when the applicant will be an asset to the company. D. You do not hire the applicant when the applicant will not be an asset to the company. As a hiring manager, the worst error you can make is to hire the applicant when the applicant will not be an asset to the company. The probability that you make this error, in our hypothesis testing analogy, is described by:________.
