Meteorology In June, the temperature at various elevations of the Grand Canyon can be approximated by the equation T = − 0.005 x + 113.25 , where T is the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit and x is the elevation (distance above sea level) in feet. Use this equation to find the elevation at Inner Gorge, the bottom of the canyon, where the temperature is 101 ° F . The Grand Canyon

To determine

The elevation at Inner Gorge when the temperature is 101 F.

Explanation

Given information:

The temperature at various elevations of the Grand Canyon is approximated by the equation T=0.005x+113.25. The temperature at Inner Gorge is 101 F.

Calculation:

T=0.005x+113.25(Given)

The temperature T is 101 F.

Therefore, the given equation becomes 101=0.005x+113.25

By subtraction property, subtract both sides by 113.25
