*High Functioning**The vertical position of an object can be approximated at any given time by the function: p(t) = rt – 5t2 + b where p(t) is the vertical position in meters, t is the time in seconds, and r and b are constants. After 2 seconds, the position of an object is 41 meters, and after 5 seconds the position is 26 meters. What is the position of the object, in meters, after 4 seconds?**(A) 24**(B) 26**(C) 39**(D) 41**(E) 45**Answer - D , for OE click on link below.*

*Question*

A paint crew gets a rush order to paint 80 houses in a new development. They paint the first y houses at a rate of x houses per week. Realizing that they'll be late at this rate, they bring in some more painters and paint the rest of the houses at the rate of 1.25x houses per week. The total time it takes them to paint all the houses under this scenario is what fraction of the time it would have taken if they had painted all the houses at their original rate of x houses per week?

(A) 0.8(80 – y)

(B) 0.8 + 0.0025y

(C) 80/y – 1.25

(D) 80/1.25y

(E) 80 – 0.25y
