Textbook Problem

**Rising Sea Level** Marjory Duffin recently purchased a beachfront condominium in New York and is now in a panic, having just seen some disturbing figures about rising sea levels (sea levels as measured in New York relative to the 1900 level).

Year Since 1900 |
0 | 25 | 50 | 75 | 100 | 125 |

Sea Level (mm) |
0 | 60 | 140 | 240 | 310 | 390 |

**a.** What was the average rate of increase of the sea level over this entire period?

**b.** During which 25-year interval(s) did the rate of increase of the sea level exceed the average rate?

**c.** Marjory Duffin’s condominium is about 2 meters above sea level. Using the average rate of change from part (a), estimate how long she has before the sea rises to her condominium.

Expert Solution

**(a)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The average rate of increase of sea level in New York over the whole period with the help of the table provided if Marjory Duffin bought a condominium in New York but the sea level is rising so she is worried.

The table provided is:

Year since |
||||||

Sea Level (mm) |

**Given information:**

Marjory Duffin bought a condominium in New York but the sea level is rising so she is worried.

The table provided is given below:

Year since |
||||||

Sea Level (mm) |

**Formula used:**

The average rate of change of function

is:

**Calculation:**

Consider that Marjory Duffin bought a condominium in New York but the sea level is rising

Expert Solution

**(b)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The

year interval when the rate of increase of the sea level was more than the average rate of increase of sea level in New York in the whole period with the help the table provided if it is given that Marjory Duffin bought a condominium in New York but the sea level is rising so she is worried.

The table provided is:

Sea Level (mm) |

Expert Solution

**(c)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The number of years it will take for the sea level to reach Marjory Duffin’s condominium if it is

meters above the sea level using part (a).
