Temperature 5

Temperature outside starts at 0 Fahrenheit. Over time the temperature changes at a rate of -0.6 Fahrenheit per hour. How long will it take for the temperature to reach -4.5 Fahrenheit?

Result

t =  7.5 h

Solution:

t1=4.5 t0=0 r=0.6 F/h  t=(t1t0)/r=((4.5)0)/(0.6)=152=7.5 ht_{1}=-4.5 \ ^\circ \text{F} \ \\ t_{0}=0 \ ^\circ \text{F} \ \\ r=-0.6 \ ^\circ \text{F/h} \ \\ \ \\ t=(t_{1}-t_{0}) / r=((-4.5)-0) / (-0.6)=\dfrac{ 15 }{ 2 }=7.5 \ \text{h}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
