F increases by 9 when 0 increases by 5 and F decreases by 9 when 0 decreases by 5.) The F-intercept of 32 is the Fahrenheit temperature corresponding to a Celsius temperature of 0. 10. (a) Let d 2 distance traveled (in miles) and t = time elapsed (in hours). At t = 0, d : O and at t : 50minutes : 50- 6—10 2 g h, d: 40.

(b) The slope of % means that the temperature in Fahrenheit degrees increases one—sixth as rapidly as the number of cricket chirps per minute. Said differently, each increase of 6 cricket chirps per minute corresponds to an increase of 1 °F.

Using the points (100, 2200) and (300, 4800) we get the slope 333% : 3%) = 13. So y — 2200 = 13(m — 100) 4:» y 2 1333 -l- 900.

Using P for pressure and d for depth with the point 10 feet change in depth 10 (d, P) = (0. 15), we have the slope-intercept form of the line, P = 0.434d + 15. 13.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
