Suppose the temperature at 12:00 noon is increasing at an (instantaneous)

rate of

3

degrees F. per hour. What is the rate of change of the temperature

in degrees C. per hour.

Hint: The relationship between degrees F. and degrees C. is linear,

zero (0) degrees C

equals 32 degrees F, and 100 degrees C equals 212 degrees F.

The rate of change in degrees C per hour is
