Problem Set **2** **DUE**: Tues. Jan 31 Spring '12

**All answers should be exact whenever possible. Approximated answers should be rounded to four significant digits unless otherwise stated in the problem.**

1. A group of 4 friends went to a restaurant for dinner. They told the waiter that they wanted to split the bill evenly. When the waiter collected from them he discovered that they each would get back $2.50 because he had mistakenly divided the bill by 3 instead of 4. How much was the original bill?

9. The local Family Restaurant has a daily breakfast special in which the customer may

choose one item from each of the following groups:

Breakfast Sandwich Accompaniments Juice

egg and ham egg and bacon egg and cheese

breakfast potatoes apple slices fresh fruit cup pastry

orange cranberry tomato apple grape

a.) How many different breakfast specials are possible?

b.) How many different breakfast specials without meat are possible?

where

*A t*

is amount after time

*t*

,

*A*

is initial amount,

*h*

is the half life, and

*t*

is time. So if a substance has a half life of 3.6 hr, we get
