SOCIOLOGY: Income Status – A study estimated how a person’s social status (rated on a scale where 100 indicates the status of a college graduate) depends upon income. Based on this study, with a an income of x thousand dollars, a person’s status is given by S (x) = 17.5 (x – 1) 0.53. Find S ’ (25) and interpret your answer. S(x) = 17.5(x −1)0.53 S ′ (x) = 9.275(x −1) −0.47 S ′ (25) = 9.275(25 − 1) −0.47 ≈ 2.08 At an income of $25,000 social status increases by about 2.08 units per additional $1000 of income. Since you are trying to calculate a derivative at a point you may use your calculator. Graph the original cost function and go to the derivative menu. This is a graph of the original equation S(x). 12.

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE: Pollution – The carbon monoxide level in a city is predicted to be 0.02 x 2/3 + 1 ppm (parts per million), where x is the population in thousands. In t years the population of the city is predicted to be x (t) 12 + 2t thousand people. Therefore, in t years the carbon monoxide level will be P 9t) = 0.02 (12 + 2t) 3/2 + 1 ppm Find P ‘ (2), the rate at which carbon monoxide pollution will be increasing in 2 years. P(t ) = 0.02(12 + 2t)3/2 + 1 P′ (t ) = 0.03(12 + 2t ) 1/2 (2) = 0.06(12 + 2t) 1/2 P′ (2) = 0.06[12 + 2(2)]1/2 = 0.24 Since you are trying to calculate a derivative at a point you may use your calculator.
