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?

so how do I apply that to this problem
welshfella
  • welshfella
well 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)

ok

so would it be For every increase of 1,000 feet in altitude, the boiling point of water decreases by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

yes - 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)

- that still gives -1.8 lol

ok 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

do you know which are the dependent and indep[endent variables?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Altitude is the independent and Fahrenheit is the dependent
