If the Fahrenheit measure of temperature is a function of the Celsius measure, and the Fahrenheit measure is 32 more than 9/5 times the Celsius measure how do I use g to represent the function?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not 100% sure, but that what it seems to me. Wait for someone to confirm. Do you know How to solve for F in term of C?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe he wants us to use variables like independent, dependent etc. I just don't understand that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you not understand dependent an independent all together or just for this specific example

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You are right, the question asks for you to assign letters to the variables :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If we graph distance as function of time, this means that on the x axis we would put time and on the y axis we would put distance. So let's say after 1 hour we drove 60 miles, at point x = 1, y = 60 at point x = 2 y = 120. X which is time is independent. The distance traveled is dependent on time. Does this make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Another way of putting it; time is not dependent on distance, rather distance is dependent on time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the x axis is independent and y axis is dependent. Another way of thinking about it is x = is input y = output. If you can graph out the following on paper it would be helpful...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know the freezing and boiling points of water in F and C? I'm trying to help you understand why the formula that was just posted is true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0skullpatrol I do get that or it could be1.8 instead of 9/5 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To use function notation: F = g(C) = (9/5)*C + 32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Answer: g(C) = 1.8*C + 32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Note: F = g(C) is a symbolic way of saying the temperature as measured in Fahrenheit is a function, g of the temperature measured in Celsius.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0LEIBY i BELIEVE IT IS 0 C and 32F for freezing and 212F and 100C for boiling

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. If you want do understand why F = 32 + (9/5)*C. Let me know and I'll show you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since water freezes at 0 degrees C and boils at 100 degrees C. Draw on the x axis a line from 0 to 100. (It doesn't need to be exact, you can make markings at increments of 10 if you'd like.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Make the Y axis go up till 220. Mark on the Y axis where the freezing point and boiling points are (32 and 212). Make a line between the 2 points. Since y = slope x + intercept, calculate the slope which is (y2  y1) / (x2  x1) which is (212  32)/ 100  0) which is 180 / 100 simplified = 9/5 so the slpe is 9/5. The intercept is 32. So, Y = (9/5)x + 32. Or F = (9/5)C + 32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wow!! you are brilliant! Math is not my subject but I keep trying, now that I found open study I may get pretty good at it with people like you and skull. Thank you sooooo much for your patience and understanding. Now I am going to write down what you said and go to bed!!! I am sooo tired.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One more thing, so which would be the independent and the dependent variable?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x is independent y is dependent So in F = 32 + (9/5)*C F is dependent on C
