IMSA MI-4 Prob. Set #4 DUE: Friday, September 18 Fall 2015 1) Robin has a hobby of building dollhouse furniture. A model piano consumes 1.5 ml of paint and uses 25 cc of balsa wood. His good friend Madeline would like Robin to make one for her dollhouse which is scaled twice as large as Robin's. How much paint and how much wood will it take for him to produce a model piano that has twice the dimensions of his model? 2) Simplify: 3+ 2 2 3+ 3+ 2 3+ 2 where … indicates that the pattern continues indefinitely. Give exact answer. n The notation , read "n choose r", is the number of combinations of n objects r taken r at a time. That is, it is the number of ways to select a group of r objects from a set of n distinct objects. It is equal to n! n(n -1) (n - r +1) = r !(n r )! r(r -1) 2×1 where n and r are non-negative integers and n r. We often write C(n,r) or nCr to denote combinations as well. It is also called a binomial coefficient. 3) 16 16 NC a) Solve for n, if . n n 2 n 2 n 3 n 4 NC b) 109 . 2 2 2 4) Find all values of n, 0 n 30 such that k a) sin 0 6 k 0 n n b) k 0 4 cos k 0 PS 4.1 Rev.
