Biologists have noticed that the chirping rate of crickets of certain species is related to temperature, and the relationship appears to be very nearly linear. A cricket produces 113 chirps per minute at 70 degrees Fahrenheit and 173 chirps per minute at 80 degrees Fahrenheit. What is the slope of the graph of a linear equation that models the temperature T as a function of the number of chirps per minute N?

Do this the same way as the last one.
Two points
(N,T)
(113, 70)
(173, 80)
T = m N + b
m = (8070)/(173113)
