At which of the following times is the lasagna cooling SLOWEST?

A. 3 hours after being taken out of the oven

B. 5 hours after being taken out of the oven

C. 6 hours after being taken out of the oven

D. 7 hours after being taken out of the oven

E. 9 hours after being taken out of the oven

I want to say that it is E. 9 hours after being taken out of the oven, but I am a little unsure. Any help is appreciated!

**Reiny**, Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 2:45pmsubbing in the time will give you the temperature.

e.g. I will do B

T(5) = e^(4.86753-5) + 70

= 70.88°

and for E:

T(9) = e^(4.85753-9) + 70 = 70.016°

Your last question deals with the "rate of change"

You can use common sense or intuition to tell that the slowest change would happen at 9 hrs

To find exact answers, take the derivative of your equation, and sub in the different values.
