the chiring rate of crickets of some species is related to temperature, and the relationship appears to be very near linear. A cricket produces 113 chirps per minute at 70 degrees farenheit and 173 chirps per minute at 80 degrees farenheit.
wht's the slope of the graph of a linear equation hat models the temperature T as a function of the number of chirps per minute N?
slope = (increase in temp)/(increase in chirp rate)
Which answer is that?
