### Question 44046

Verified

During the summer months, British Columbia experiences numerous forest fires. You are working as a fire ranger in the interior of British Columbia and you spot a fire that is 15 km away from your tower. Your friend is working at another tower that is located 20 km from you at an angle of 21°. She can also see the fire.

b) Your friend decides to dispatch a water plane to the fire. Your station is not equipped with waterplanes. At what angle should the plane fly to target the fire accurately? (AP3)

### Question 44045

Verified

As a computer engineer, you are always looking at ways to improve the computing experience. As part of your final paper to submit for your Master's Degree, you do some research about how far computing has come over the years.

You make some interesting discoveries. Dating back to 1940, you find out that one of the original large computers was able to perform about 100 operations per second. After examining the data,you see that the speed of computers has multiplied 5-fold about every 7 years.

a) Some of the data is missing. You know that some super computers can now process4 882 812 500 operations per second. How many years have gone by to reach this number of operations? What year would this have occurred in? Show your solution algebraically! (AP5)

b) Do you think this is a realistic model? What limitation(s) may arise with this model? (CM3)

### Question 43374

### Question 43373

Verified

Find an equation for the plane through the point (3, 2,-5) and parallel to the plane defined by5x- 4y + 4z = 12.

1=5(x-3)-4(y+5)+10(z-2)

### Question 43369

Verified

\text { Find an equation of the line passing through the points } P(3,4,-2) \text { and } Q(5,-4,3) \text {. }

\frac{x+3}{2}=\frac{y+4}{-8}=\frac{z-2}{5}
