here, the requested function h, is given by the subsequent formula: $\Large \frac{{t - 3}}{{5 - 3}} = \frac{{h - 17}}{{15 - 17}}$ please solve for h

3. Michele_Laino

more explanation: the equation above is the equation of a line which passes at points (3,17) and (5,15)

4. Michele_Laino

what is h?

5. <3pandas18

1? so in 8 hours it will be 12 inches 3-17 5-15 7-13 8-12 every two hours the candle reduces two inches so in one hour it reduces 1 inch?

6. Michele_Laino

after a simplification, we get: $h = - t + 20$ please check that formula. So, if I replace t with 8, I can write: $h = - t + 20 = - 8 + 20 = 12$
