Chapter 1.11, Problem 44E

To determine

**To find:** The value of the building lot for the given conditions.

Expert Solution

The value of the given building lot is

**Given:**

The value of a building lot on Galiano island is jointly proportional to its area and the quantity of water produced by a well on the property.

Dimension of the building lot is

Quantity of water produced by the well is

Value of the building lot is $

**Calculation:**

The equation of the given variation is,

Here,

To find the value of a building lot whose area is

Substitute

Simplify above equation,

Thus, the value of constant of proportionality is 0.08

Now, use the value of constant of proportionality to calculate the value of a building lot whose area is

Substitute

Thus, the cost of building lot is
