1 2.7 More about Problem Solving1 Use percent in problems involving rates. Percents are ratios where the second number is always 100. For example, 50% represents the ratio 50 to 100 and 27% represents the ratio 27 to 100. The percent proportion is

2 2.7 More about Problem Solving2 1. The parking lot at a grocery has 50 cars in it. 40% of the cars are four- door. How many cars are four-door? Answer: 20 cars 2. Students at East Central High School earned $384 selling subscriptions. They want to make $4350 for a club trip. What percent of their goal has been reached? Round to the nearest tenth of a percent, if necessary. Answer: 8.8% 3. Tech Support spent $53,500 this year on health insurance alone.

An investment broker invests $76,200 in municipal bonds and earns 15% per year on the investment. How much money is earned per year? Answer: $11,430

3 2.7 More about Problem Solving3 Solve problems involving mixtures. Use tables to organize the information in the problems. A table enables us to more easily set up an equation, which is usually the most difficult step.

4 2.7 More about Problem Solving4 5. A merchant has coffee worth $40 a pound that she wishes to mix with 60 pounds of coffee worth $90 a pound to get a mixture that can be sold for $70 a pound. How many pounds of the $40 coffee should be used? Answer: 40 pounds 6. How many liters of a 10% alcohol solution must be mixed with 90 liters of a 40% solution to get a 20% solution? Answer: 180 L 7. In a chemistry class, 4 liters of a 4% silver iodide solution must be mixed with a 10% solution to get a 6% solution. How many liters of the 10% solution are needed? Answer: 2 L 8. It is necessary to have a 40% antifreeze solution in the radiator of a certain car. The radiator now has 40 liters of 20% solution. How many liters of this should be drained and replaced with 100% antifreeze to get the desired strength? Answer: 10 L

5 2.7 More about Problem Solving5 Solve problems involving simple interest. The formula used is I = p r t where I = interest p = principal r = rate t = time

6 2.7 More about Problem Solving6 9. Helen Weller invested $10,000 in an account that pays 10% simple interest. How much additional money must be invested in an account that pays 13% simple interest so that the average return on the two investments amounts to 11%? Answer: $5, Mardi received an inheritance of $70,000. She invested part at 12% and deposited the remainder in tax-free bonds at 10%. Her total annual income from the investments was $7600.
