Question

A new toy hits the local store. Sales (in tens) increase a steady rate for several months, then decrease at about the same rate. This can be modeled by the function S(m)=−0.625|m−8|+5 In what month(s) were 25 toys sold?

    Absolute value cannot be less than 0. No solution

    Solution:

    Given that,

    A new toy hits the local store

    Sales (in tens) increase a steady rate for several months, then decrease at about the same rate

    This can be modeled by the function:

    S(m) = -0.625 |m - 8| + 5

    In what month(s) were 25 toys sold?

    Therefore,

    S = 25

    Substitute S = 25 in above function

    25 = -0.625 | m - 8| + 5\\\\25 - 5 = -0.625 | m - 8|\\\\20 = -0.625 | m - 8|\\\\| m - 8| = -32

    \mathrm{Absolute\:value\:cannot\:be\:less\:than\:0}

    Thus no solution occurs
