ALGEBRA
To use a rock climbing wall at a college, a person who does not attend the college has to pay a $5 certification fee plus$3 per visit. The total cost C (in dollars) for a person who does not attend the college is given by C = 3v + 5 where v is the number of visits to the rock climbing wall. A student at the college pays only an $8 certification fee, so the total cost for a student is given by C = 8. a. Graph both equations in the same coordinate plane. At what point do the lines intersect? What does the point of intersection represent? b. When will a nonstudent pay more than a student? When will a student pay more than a nonstudent? Explain.

CHEMISTRY
In an attempt to conserve water and to be awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, a 20,000-liter cistern has been installed during construction of a new building. The cistern collects water from an HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning) system designed to provide 2830 cubic meters of air per minute at $22^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ and 50% relative humidity after converting it from ambient conditions ($31^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$, 70% relative humidity). The collected condensate serves as the source of water for lawn maintenance. Estimate (a) the rate of intake of air at ambient conditions in cubic feet per minute and (b) the hours of operation required to fill the cistern.
STATISTICS
To get a voter initiative on a state ballot, petitions that contain at least 250,000 valid voter signatures must be filed with the Elections Commission. The board then has 60 days to certify the petitions. A group wanting to create a statewide system of universal health insurance has just filed petitions with a total of 304,266 signatures. As a first step in the process, the Board selects an SRS of 2000 signatures and checks them against local voter lists. Only 1772 of them tum out to be valid. a) What percent of the sample signatures were valid? b) What percent of the petition signatures submitted must be valid in order to have the initiative certified by the Elections Commission? c) What will happen if the Elections Commission commits a Type I error? d) What will happen if the Elections Commission commits a Type II error? e) Does the sample provide evidence in support of certification? Explain. f) What could the Elections Commission do to increase the power of the test?
