The maximum no-compression dive times for open-water scuba diving with air-filled tanks can be modeled as

t(x) = 286.93(0.9738x) minutes of dive time where x feet is the depth of the dive, 50 ≤ x ≤ 120.

 

(b) What is the maximum depth possible in a dive of 25 minutes?

(Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

Step 1

Given time is 25 minutes. So t(x)=25. 

Step 2

In the given expression we plug t(x...

t(x)-286.93(0.9738*)
Or, 25=286.93(0.9738*)
25
Or, 0.9738.
286.93
Or, 0.9738* 0.087129264
