Homework Help: Math (Please Help)

Posted by Kirsten on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 at 10:15am.

3. A hot air balloon is at a height of 2,250 feet. It descends 150 feet each minute. Find it's height after six, eight, and ten minutes. Make a table to show the pattern of heights. Write an expression for the balloon's height at "m" minutes.

This one just has me completely lost. Do I divide or subtract or...? I have not the slightest idea what the answers are, how to set up the expression, how to make the table, etc. This is why I need help urgently, PLEASE. I'll try, though...

2,250 - 150 m

2,250 - 150 6 =
2400 6 = 400

2,250 - 150 8
2400 8 = 300

2,250 - 150 10
2400 10 = 240

Is this correct, or is it 2,250 150 - m? I'm so lost. :/ Also, what's the pattern? I've been asking since last night with absolutely no response whatsoever. I apologize, as I know you are busy with many other questions.
