You are working on a new temperature scale that will unify the earth. Let F denote the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit, let X denote your new temperature scale. You want it to be such that if F=0 then X=19 and if F=100 then X=107 . You also want X to be such that if you plot X against F you obtain a straight line. The formula X= mF + b
Where M = ?????
Where B = ?????

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0M = 22/25 0 = (22/25)(19) + B 0 = 418/25 + B B = 418/25 simplify as needed :)
