A line intersecting a parabola at the points negative one, zero and two, three. The region under the line but above the parabola is shaded.

Solutions to Odd-Numbered Exercises

1. A nonlinear system could be representative of two circles that overlap and intersect in two locations, hence two solutions. A nonlinear system could be representative of a parabola and a circle, where the vertex of the parabola meets the circle and the branches also intersect the circle, hence three solutions. 3. No. There does not need to be a feasible region. Consider a system that is bounded by two parallel lines. One inequality represents the region above the upper line; the other represents the region below the lower line. In this case, no points in the plane are located in both regions; hence there is no feasible region. 5. Choose any number between each solution and plug into [latex]C\left(x\right)[/latex] and [latex]R\left(x\right)[/latex]. If [latex]C\left(x\right)<R\left(x\right),\text{}[/latex] then there is profit. 7. [latex]\left(0,-3\right),\left(3,0\right)[/latex] 9. [latex]\left(-\frac{3\sqrt{2}}{2},\frac{3\sqrt{2}}{2}\right),\left(\frac{3\sqrt{2}}{2},-\frac{3\sqrt{2}}{2}\right)[/latex] 11. [latex]\left(-3,0\right),\left(3,0\right)[/latex] 13. [latex]\left(\frac{1}{4},-\frac{\sqrt{62}}{8}\right),\left(\frac{1}{4},\frac{\sqrt{62}}{8}\right)[/latex] 15. [latex]\left(-\frac{\sqrt{398}}{4},\frac{199}{4}\right),\left(\frac{\sqrt{398}}{4},\frac{199}{4}\right)[/latex] 17. [latex]\left(0,2\right),\left(1,3\right)[/latex] 19. [latex]\left(-\sqrt{\frac{1}{2}\left(\sqrt{5}-1\right)},\frac{1}{2}\left(1-\sqrt{5}\right)\right),\left(\sqrt{\frac{1}{2}\left(\sqrt{5}-1\right)},\frac{1}{2}\left(1-\sqrt{5}\right)\right)[/latex] 21. [latex]\left(5,0\right)[/latex] 23. [latex]\left(0,0\right)[/latex] 25. [latex]\left(3,0\right)[/latex] 27. No Solutions Exist 29. No Solutions Exist 31. [latex]\left(-\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2},-\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\right),\left(-\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2},\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\right),\left(\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2},-\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\right),\left(\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2},\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\right)[/latex] 33. [latex]\left(2,0\right)[/latex] 35. [latex]\left(-\sqrt{7},-3\right),\left(-\sqrt{7},3\right),\left(\sqrt{7},-3\right),\left(\sqrt{7},3\right)[/latex] 37. [latex]\left(-\sqrt{\frac{1}{2}\left(\sqrt{73}-5\right)},\frac{1}{2}\left(7-\sqrt{73}\right)\right),\left(\sqrt{\frac{1}{2}\left(\sqrt{73}-5\right)},\frac{1}{2}\left(7-\sqrt{73}\right)\right)[/latex] 39.
