what or how would i solve the following i don't need the answer i want to do it but how would i solve this.
Water pressure (p) in the ocean is 2.3 tons per square inch at a depth (d) of 2miles and 3.45 tons per square inch at depth of 3 miles.
How do i find the linear equation using (d,p) for htese data points?
How do i find the pressure at a depth of 4miles?
Make an equation:
Pressure= m*depth + k
Put in the two values, you will have two equations. Solve for m, and k.
