Examine Figure 1(b) and complete the sentences below by filling in the blanks: * What is the serving size? (in grams) 132 g * How many calories are there per serving? 532 * How much calcium do you ingest in one serving? (in percentage) 95 % * How much saturated fat do you ingest in one serving? (in percentage) 139 g * How much saturated fat do you ingest in one serving? (in grams) 28 g 1. In the below, solve Equation (2) by using the difference of squares method. Choose the value of y that makes sense with the problem. 32y32y2-50=0 4y+5=0-5 4y-5=0-5 1by2-25=0 -5 -5 42. y2-52=0 4y4=54 y=54 4y4=-54 y=-54 4y2-52=0 -5454 4y-54y+5=0 2. In the below, solve Equation (2) by using the square root property. Choose the value of y that makes sense with the problem. 32y2-50=0 y2 = 2516 +50 +50 y=±54 -54 ,54 32y232=5032 54in y2=5032 =22 3. Of course, Equation (2) is also solvable by using the general formula. 32y2-50=0 y=±805=±54 a=32, b=0, c=-50 -54,54 y=-b±b2-4ac2a 54in y= -0±02-4∙32∙(-50)2∙32
