Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03. Two ocean beaches are being affected by erosion. The table shows the width, in feet, of each beach at high tide measured where 1995 is represented by year 0. Year number Western Beach width (in feet) Dunes Beach width (in feet) 0 100 20 5 90 45 10 80 70 11 78 75 12 76 80 15 70 95 A. Describe the patterns shown by the erosion data measurements shown for each of the beaches in the table. B. Between which years will the beaches have approximately the same width? C. Assuming these rates remain constant, what can you do to get a better approximation of when the two beaches will have the same width?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well my best guess for A is to plot the data points.... that will allow you to decide how to describe the pattern... so on a 1st quadrant number plane plot years on the horizontal axis and width on the vertical axis... you will need to do this twice... 1 for Western and 1 for Dunes... only then will you be able to answer B and C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The graph will help you see the patterns THEN you may be able to describe in words Plotting the chart is your best first step. It require you to do a little work before oyu can answer...
