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?

Is this just asking for the Fahrenheit formula in terms of C?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm sorry, I really don't know

I'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?

I believe he wants us to use variables like independent, dependent etc. I just don't understand that
anonymous
  • anonymous
and no to your answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you not understand dependent an independent all together or just for this specific example
anonymous
  • anonymous
altogether

You are right, the question asks for you to assign letters to the variables :-)

Let F = the Fahrenheit measure of temperature Let C = the Celsius measure of temperature

If 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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Another way of putting it; time is not dependent on distance, rather distance is dependent on time.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes that makes sense

Can you translate the the words in the sentence into an equation?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no skullpatrol

So 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...

Do 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
skullpatrol I do get that or it could be1.8 instead of 9/5 right?
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
To use function notation: F = g(C) = (9/5)*C + 32
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Yes, 9/5 = 1.8
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Answer: g(C) = 1.8*C + 32

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! i GET IT!!
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Note: 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
LEIBY i BELIEVE IT IS 0 C and 32F for freezing and 212F and 100C for boiling
anonymous
  • anonymous
Correct. If you want do understand why F = 32 + (9/5)*C. Let me know and I'll show you.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Please show me

Since 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.)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Make 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

wow!! 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.

I'm not brilliant, I also keep trying, till I get it.

you have a nice rest of the night! Well, it is after 1 am now! Gotta get up at 6:30. What state do you live in?
anonymous
  • anonymous
One more thing, so which would be the independent and the dependent variable?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x is independent y is dependent So in F = 32 + (9/5)*C F is dependent on C
anonymous
  • anonymous
got it!! Thank you again!
