2 A gas company has the following rate schedule for natural gas usage in single-family residences:

 

Monthly service charge                  $8.80

 

Per therm service charge

1st 25 therms                      $0.6686/therm

Over 25 therms                  $0.85870/therm

 

What is the charge for using 25 therms in one month? Show your work.

3 The wind chill factor represents the equivalent air temperature at a standard wind speed that would produce the same heat loss as the given temperature and wind speed. One formula for computing the equivalent temperature is

 

W(t) =

 

where v represents the wind speed (in meters per second) and t represents the air temperature . Compute the wind chill for an air temperature of 15°C and a wind speed of 12 meters per second. (Round the answer to one decimal place.) Show your work.
