Suppose that a certain strain of pea plant requires 14 days to reach a height of 6 inches and 30 days to reach a height of 16 inches. How many days would it take a plant of this strain to reach a height of 12 inches? * i got 15 days, am i right? *

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's okay, you must find the slope to find the equation of the line :) m = y2y2/x2x1 after that, choose any of the given points to plug in the following equation : y  yo= m(xxo) :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh wait a min, wasn't the question find the linear equation?..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay, then you have to use the equation you got in the previous question then plug in x to find y :) since we said that y = height x = number of days when you plug in x, you'll get y, that's it ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you have an equation in the form of : y = mx + B < from the previous question plug in y = 12, to get x = number of days ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh dont worry, I guess that the question forgot to put "assume a linear eqn "

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because otherwise you would assume expxonential growth , but im assuming the asker hasnt done that yet :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:) not convincing me here lol Alright, did you find the equation from the previous question? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from this question i got y=x+12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright, now we said that x = represents the number of days right? and y =height, right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright then, the question wants to know how many days would it take a plant to reach 12 inches right? so in this case y = 12, all you'vegot to do is plug it in the equation and find x^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so to find x, what would i have to do, combine like trems? or no.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope you have : y = x + 12 where x = days and y = height = 12 12 = x + 12 x = 0....hmm there's something wrong, are you sure of your equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(14,6) ( 30,16) m = (166) / (3014) = (5/8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0m = y2y1/x2x1 m = (166)/(30  14) m = 0.625

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it's y=5/8x+12??????????

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now plug this in the following : y  yo= m(xxo) < choose any point: y  12 = 0.625(x30) y = 0.625x  6.75

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we are both wrong I think

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is your equation, now plug in the 12 inches to find the number of days : 12 = 0.625x  6.75 0.625x = 18.75 x = 30 So it takes 30 days? .. LOL there's something wrong >_<?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you sure x = represents the number of days?, oh so my answer is true? LOL

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0same thing, but mine is in decimal lol, but wait 11/4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.012 = (5/8)x 11/4 (5/8)x = 14.75 x= (8/5) * 14.75 = 23.6 days

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which makes sense, its half way between 14 and 30
