Appendix DLandscape Design
Landscape designers often use coordinate geometry and algebra as they help their clients. In manyregions, landscape design is a growing field. With the increasing popularity of do-it-yourself televisionshows, many homeowners are becoming amateur landscape artists.Imagine you are a homeowner getting ready to sell your home. You realize there are some landscapingproblems you want to address so your home will sell quickly and you can get the best price. After makingthis decision, you realize there are many things to consider when landscaping the backyard, such asbudget, time, and space.

menu. Click the white space beloweach question to maintain proper formatting.
1.
You are planning to spend no less than \$6,000 and no more than \$10,000 on your landscapingproject.
a.
Write an inequality that demonstrates how much money you will are willing to spend on theproject.
\$6,000 x

\$10,000
b.
For the first phase of the project, imagine you want to cover the backyard with decorativerock and plant some trees. You need 30 tons of rock to cover the area. If each ton costs \$60 andeach tree is \$84, what is the maximum number of trees you can buy with a budget of \$2,500? Writean inequality that illustrates the problem and solve. Express your answer as an inequality andexplain how you arrived at your answer.
8To solve this problem, multiply 60 by 30. This answerindicates how much the rock will cost, which is\$1,800. Subtract \$1,800 from \$2,500 to arrive at \$700.This means you have \$700 to spend on trees. Divide\$700 by the cost of each tree, which is \$84. Theanswer, 8.3333, indicates how many trees you canbuy. Since you cannot buy a portion of a tree and donot have enough money to buy 9 trees, you canpurchase a maximum of 8 trees.
c.
Would five trees be a solution to theinequality in Part b? Justify your answer.
MAT/116

Yes. The number 5 is less than or equal to 8. The cost of 5 trees is also less than the cost of 8, so you arestill under budget.
2.
The coordinate graph of the backyard shows the location of the trees, plants, patio, and utilitylines. If necessary, you may copy and paste the image to another document and enlarge it.
a.
What are the coordinates of Tree A, Plant B, Plant C, Patio D, Plant E, and Plant F?
Tree A (-20,20); Plant B (-20,-4); Plant C (-10, -14); Patio D (12,12), Plant E (8,-8); Plant F (18, -12)
b.The water line is given by the equation

1232
=
x y

1232
= -
x
-
Imagine you want to put a pink flamingo lawn ornament in your backyard. You want to avoid placingit directly over the water line in case you need to excavate the line for repairs in the future. Couldyou place it at the point (-4,-10)?
Yes, it would not lie directly on the line, but it would be close to the water line. Some may argue that this maynot be the best choice for the ornament, but they should determine that (-4, -10) is not a solution.

c.
What is the slope and
-intercept of the line in Part b? How do you know?
123 2= -= -
Bm
The slope is the rate of change; it indicates how much the
y
will increase as
x
increases. Theintercept
b
indicates the value of the line when
x
= 0.
