#### How do you ask a question in Chinese?

I just learned that Chinese is a tonal language, but that made me wonder, how do you ask a question if you can't raise your voice at the end? What are the different ways to let someone know you are trying to ask a question?

Asked by Ben from Washington, DC

depends on the type of question. if it's a yes/no question (in other words it requires only a yes or no for an answer), then you use the word -ma (this is toneless) at the end.

there are other type of questions, (like when, who, what, how)....these questions have their chinese counterparts

what - shenme

how - zenme

when - shenme shihou (what time)

who - shui (second tone)

these words are easily recognizable as question words, and there are tones on the first part of each word (everything but the -me part)

#### If the ratio of grapes to walnuts to oranges is 9:3:11, how many grapes are there if the total number of fruits is 161?

Asked by Ann from Monticello, AR

add the numbers together: 9+3+11 = 23

you want the ratio of total number of grapes to total number of fruits

this should be consistent no matter how many fruits you have, so:

9/23 = x/161

cross-multiply and solve for x (number of grapes in a total of 161 fruits)

23x = 9*161 ---> x = 63

#### find profit

john owns a hot dog stand.  his profit in dollars is given by the equation P(x)=P=-x^2+14x+54, where x is the number of hot dogs sold. what is the most he can earn?

okay, that's an upside-down U and the maximum value is at the top

if you put the function in vertex form you can easily find the vertex:

group the first two terms and factor out the negative (essentially factoring out -1):

p = - (x²-14x) + 54

complete the square by taking the middle coefficient (14), dividing it by 2, squaring it and adding the result to the terms in parentheses

p = -(x²-14x+49) + 54 + 49  (we've really subtracted 49, so we have to undo this by adding 49)

p = -(x-7)² + 103

the vertex is at (7,103), so your maximum profit is \$103

#### f(x) =2x-1 a) Determine the range value when the domain value is 0. b) Determine the domain value when the range value is 5.

I don't remember how to solve this!

Asked by Mathalina from Louisville, KY

range value is the y value

domain value is the x value

(a) find y when x = 0

y = 2x-1 = 2(0)-1 = -1

y = -1

(b) find x when y = 5

5 = 2x-1

6 = 2x

x = 3

#### Dave purchased a \$24000 life insurance policy at the price of \$31 per \$1000 of coverage. If he pays the premium quarterly, how much is each installment?

I need help figuring this out.

Asked by John from Dallas, TX

Cost = \$31/\$1000  *  \$24000 = \$744

Quarterly payment = \$744 / 4 = \$186
