Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Bill on Tuesday, November 10, 2009 at 4:59am.

The temperature of a cup of Starbucks coffee at time t (in minutes) is T(t)= 70 + c e^(-kt) . Initially, the temperature of the coffee was 200 degrees F. Three minutes later, it was 180 degrees. When will the temperature of the coffee be 150 degrees F?

The back of the book says it is 8.7 minutes, but I can't figure out how to get that answer.

Thank you for your help.
