The wind chill factor represents the equivalent air temperature at a standard wind speed that would produce the same heat loss as the given temperature and wind speed. One formula for computing the equivalent temperature is where v represents the wind speed (in meters per second) and t represents the air temperature . Compute the wind chill for an air temperature of 15°C and a wind speed of 12 meters per second. (Round the answer to one decimal place.)

    hint: v = 12 look at the right side of each equation to determine which of the three equations to use

    right. plug in v = 12 and t = 15, then you'll have your answer

    your equation is 33 - (10.45+10sqrt(v)-v)(33-t)/22.04 after you substitute 12 for v and 15 for t it becomes 33-(10.45+sqrt(12)-12)(33-15)/22.04

    (Round the answer to one decimal place.

    not quite 31.4367591164936669 rounds to 31.4 (remember, you keep the digit in the tenths place (4), then look at the next digit to decide where to round. since 3 (the next digit) is below 5, you round down)

    one decimal means one digit to the right of the decimal point

    not quite, v isn't part of the answer anymore, it's just 31.4
