Shiloh wants to buy a long lasting candle. Type 1 candle melts by 19.5 cm each hour. Type 2 candle melts by 0.15 inch each minute. Both the candles have the same original height. [1 inch = 2.54 cm Part B: If the original height of the candles was 40 cm, and you checked on its height every 30 minutes after lighting it, describe appropriate scales on the x-axis and y-axis to graph the rate at which the slower candle melts.

    so, first you need to convert all your measurements to the same scale (metric)

    and you'll also want to divide 19.5 by 60 to discover the rate per minute

    then you'll graph according to the points you find when your data is all on the same format

    But how do I put it in the form of x and y ? Like for x should I put 15 minutes I'm highly confused . Any help ? @only_hanaaa

    since you already converted your meausments you should prob use x for the time and y for the height

    So can It go by 15 min for x and 6cm for height ? @only_hanaaa

    Could you help with one more Jane poured 12 cups of water into a rectangular container measuring 12 inches by 8 inches by 9 centimeters. [1 cup = 14.44 cubic inches; 1 inch = 2.54 cm] Part A: What is the maximum volume of water that the rectangular container can hold? Show your work. (3 points) Part B: How many cubic inches of water was poured into the container? (3 points) Part C: What was the height of the water in the container? Show your work. (4 points) @only_hanaaa

    sure, for part c you need to find the height of the water in the container...you need to convert the "12 inches by 8 inches by 9 centimeters" into the cups measurement

    using [1 cup = 14.44 cubic inches; 1 inch = 2.54 cm] conversion

    So 9 cm= 22.86 in

    yes, and now you convert the 22.86 in into cups using 1 cup = 14.44 cubic inches

    now you need to convert the other measurements into cups and then you add them up, and you get your height of water in cups
