Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have to convert the sentences to a formula:\[V=c \frac{ T }{ p }\] Put in the numbers of the first situation to calculate the constant c. Then put in the numbers of the second situation. You can calculate V now.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First situation:\[100=c \frac{ 1508 }{ 15 }\]You can get c by multiplying both sides with 15 and divide by 1508.
