Second practice exam and its Solutions.
Solutions to Homework 7.
The word problem worksheet is here, and its solutions are here. Note that the answer for part d in exercise 1 should be 2010 instead of 2011 (since the overtake happens during 2010 around November). Also note that I didn't include the solution to the fifth exercise because it's example 3 of section 3.5 (page 178).
On the following Link you can find the actual graphs of the examples we did in class. you can see they have the same shape. (Note: I omitted the (x^2+4) terms from examples 2,3,4).
