The table represents the change in the boiling point of water at different altitudes.
Altitude
(in thousands of feet) Boiling Point of Water
(Fahrenheit)
(sea level) 0 212
0.5 211.1
1.0 210
2.0 208.4
2.5 207.5
3.0 206.6
4.0 204.8
4.5 203.9
Determine the dependent and independent variables if this data were plotted. What would the slope of the graph represent?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well pick out 2 consecutive readings  say 4 , 204.8 and 4.5, 203.9 slope will be (203.9  204.8) / (4.5  2.0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would it be For every increase of 1,000 feet in altitude, the boiling point of water decreases by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes  but second thoughts that might not be a very good estimate better to do the calculation over a bigger range best would be (203.9  211.1) / (4.5  0.5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1 that still gives 1.8 lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well the answer choices are A.For every increase of 1,000 feet in altitude, the boiling point of water increases by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. B.For every increase of 1,000 feet in altitude, the boiling point of water decreases by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. C.For every decrease of 1,000 feet in altitude, the boiling point of water decreases by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. D.For every increase of 1,800 feet in altitude, the boiling point of water decreases by 1 degree Fahrenheit. E.For every decrease of 1,800 feet in altitude, the boiling point of water decreases by 1 degree Fahrenheit. and I thought that that was the best answer
