The depth of the ocean crust can be approximated by the equation: d=2500+350*t^1/2, where d=depth in meters, and t=age in millions of years. How old would the crust be if it were 5000 m deep? How deep would the crust be if it were new (zero years?

1. substract 2500 from both sides of the equation 2. devide 350 on both sides of the equation 3. square both sides of the equation
