(a) Find an equation giving the relationship between the air temperature *x* and the number of chirps per min *y* of the crickets.

(b) Use this function to determine the rate at which the crickets chirp when the temperature is 101°F.

chirps/min

(b) Use this function to determine the rate at which the crickets chirp when the temperature is 101°F.

chirps/min

Step 1

Part A

When the temperature is 60°F, the crickets chirp at the rate of 145 chirps/min, and when the temperature is 90°F, they chirp at the rate of 295 chirps/min.

Let x represents the air temperature and y represents chirps rate.

Step 2

Finding the equation using the slope-point form i.e.

Step 3

Part b
