Question

Biologists have noticed that the chirping of crickets of a certain species is related to temperature, and the relationship appears to be very nearly linear. A cricket produces 114 chirps per minute at 75 degrees Fahrenheit and 176 chirps per minute at 82 degrees Fahrenheit.

Find a linear equation that models the temperature TT as a function of the number of chirps per minute NN.
T(N)=T(N)=

If the crickets are chirping at 159 chirps per minute, estimate the temperature:
Temperature =
