### Mathematics rates 2nd in ‘Best Jobs of 2018’

April24

Careers in STEM — like Mathematician, Statistician, Data Scientist and Actuary — shape the Best Jobs of 2018, which is no deviation from recent trends. However, a job tracked by the Jobs Rated Report for the first time, Genetic Counselor, is No. 1. And with 29% growth outlook, this healthcare field speaks to the advancements rapidly taking over our job landscape. Jobs in Math came out as #2.
In the same vein, the worst job of 2018, Taxi Driver, has seen a sharp decline in hiring outlook with stagnating pay as a result of ride-sharing apps — apps that were scarcely used just five years ago. There’s no telling how much the job landscape will change in another five years ago. Industries, technology and society might change, but the Jobs Rated report has remained consistent in the criteria it uses to rank 220 professions. The following is the complete Jobs Rated report for 2018.

10 x 9 x 8 + (7 + 6) x 5 x 4 x (3 + 2) x 1 = 2020

NCEA Level 2 Algebra Problem. Using the information given, the shaded area = 9, that is:
y(y-8) = 9 –> y.y – 8y – 9 =0
–> (y-9)(y+1) = 0, therefore y = 9 (can’t have a distance of – 1 for the other solution for y)
Using the top and bottom of the rectangle,
x = (y-8)(y+2) = (9-8)(9+2) = 11
but, the left side = (x-4) = 11-4 = 7, but rhs = y+? = 9+?, which is greater than the value of the opp. side??
[I think that the left had side was a mistake and should have read (x+4)?]
