Your first pass around the yard with the mower cuts the entire blade range leaving a VAR6[INT, 0, 5]VAR6 inch “dead area”. How many hours will it take you to mow the lawn in a circular fashion assuming that each subsequent pass around the yard cuts VAR7[INT, 60, 80]VAR7% of the blade length, and that your speed decreases by VAR8[FLOAT, 1,4]VAR8 % with each pass?
16c: FORMULA: VAR1*VAR2*2/VAR3 VARIABLES: 8 PROB: You cook on the average VAR1[FLOAT, 0, 3]VAR1 times a day, for an average of VAR2[INT, 30, 100]VAR2 minutes/time when you use your big cooking oven.
