You are about to enter an elevator with a weight capacity of 600 pounds. there are four people
already in the elevator.
the weights of the passengers are 103 pounds, 149 pounds, 117 pounds, and 86 pounds. assuming that you weigh 168 pounds, is it safe for you to enter the elevator?
b. no, the weight capacity would be exceeded by 30 pounds
c. no, the weight capacity would be exceeded by 23 pounds
d. no, the weight capacity would be exceeded by 13 pounds
Step-by-step explanation: 103+149+117+86+168=623
Exceeds over by 23 pounds
Add the overall weight of the passengers (including yourself) and subtract that from the weight capacity of the elevator:
f(x) has value 150 at x= 0
and 0 at x= 3
so d(f(x))/dt = slope = -150/3 = -50
a is the correct
