11. Lucinda owns two ice cream parlors. The first ice cream shop sells 5 gallons of vanilla ice cream and 8 gallons of chocolate ice cream each day. The daily sales at the second store are 6 gallons of vanilla ice cream and 10 gallons of chocolate ice cream. The daily sales at stores one and two can be represented by the vectors s1 = (5,8) and s2 = (6,10) respectively. In this context, what interpretation can be given to the vector 15s1?
(a) 15s1 shows the number of people that can be served with 15 gallons of vanilla ice cream.
(b) 15s1 shows the gallons of vanilla and chocolate ice cream sold by store 1 in 15 days.
(c) 15s1 gives the total revenue from selling 15 gallons of ice cream at store 1.
(d) 15s1 represents the number of days it will take to sell 15 gallons of ice cream at store 1.

12. The stores are run by different managers, and they are not always able to be open the same number of days in a month. If store 1 is open for c1 days in March, and store 2 is open for c2 days in March, which of the following represents the total sales of each flavor of ice cream between the two stores?
a) c1s1+c2s2
b) Matrix([[5,6],[8,10]]).Vector([c1,c2])
c) Vector([5c1,8c1]) + Vector([6c2,10c2])
d) All of the above
e) None of the above

13. Lucinda is getting ready to close her ice cream parlors for the winter. She has a total of 39 gallons of vanilla ice cream in her warehouse, and 64 gallons of chocolate ice cream. She would like to distribute the ice cream to the two stores so that it is used up before the stores close for the winter. How much ice cream should she take to each store? The stores may stay open for different number of days, but no store may run out of ice cream before the end of the day on which it closes.
a) 3 gallons of each kind to store 1 and 4 gallons of each kind to store 2
b) 3 gallons of vanilla to each store and 4 gallons of chocolate to each store
c) 15 gallons of vanilla and 24 gallons of chocolate to store 1 and 24 gallons of vanilla and 40 gallons of chocolate to store 2
d) This cannot be done unless ice cream is thrown out or a store runs out of ice cream before the end of the day

14. For full credit, which of the following are true regarding graded problem sets
a) I must print out all work, including Maple ReducedRowEchelonForm commands and output
b) I must annotate/explain my methods and reasoning with handwritten comments and/or typed comments.
c) both a) and b)
d) neither a) nor b)
