Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Some scientists believe that the average surface temperature of the world has been rising steadily. The average surface temperature can be modeled by T = 0.02t + 15.0 where T is the temperature in °C and t is years since 1950. What do the slope and Tintercept represent? (a) The slope represents the increase in the average surface temperature in °C per year, and the Tintercept is the average surface temperature in 1950, or 15°C. (b) The slope represents the decrease in the average surface temperature in °C per year, and the Tintercept is the average surface temperature in 1950, or 15°C. (c) The slope represents the average surface temperature in °C per year, and the Tintercept is the increase in surface temperature in 1950, or 15°C. (d) The slope represents the average surface temperature in °C per year, and the Tintercept is the decrease in surface temperature in 1950, or 15°C. (e) The slope represents the change in the average surface temperature in °C per year, and the Tintercept is the predicted surface temperature in year 2015.
