TEMPERATURE Conversion The relationship between the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (°F) and the temperature in degrees Celsius (°C) is F = 9 5 C + 32 72. a. Sketch the line with the given equation. b. What is the slope of the line? What does it represent? c. What is the F-intercept of the line? What does it represent?

(a)

To determine

To sketch: The graph of the equation F=95C+32 .

Explanation

The given equation is,

F=95C+32 (1)

Substitute 0 for C in equation (1).

F=32

Substitute 0 for F in equation (1).

0=95C+3295C=32C=32×59C=17

(b)

To determine
The slope of the line and it represents.

(c)

To determine
The F intercept of the line and it represents.
