At T = 0 minutes, the rocket weighed 5100. So w(0) = 5100. At T = 1 minutes, the rocket weighed 5097. So w(1) = 5097. At T = 2 minutes, the rocket weighed 5094.So w(2) = 5094. What would it weigh at T = 10 minutes? What would it weight at T = 100 minutes? What about a random time T? The function w(T) gives you the weight at T minutes, for any time T. If you can answer the two questions above, you'll see how to express w(T) as a function of T.
