A hot air balloon was at a height of 60 feet above the ground when it began to ascend. The balloon climbed at a rate of 15 feet per minute.
a) make a table that shows the height of the air balloon after climbing for 1,2,3,&4 minutes.
minutes:1 2 3 4

height:15 30 45 60
(ft)climbed
b)let T represent the time in minutes since the balloon began climbing. wRITE AN ALGEBRAIC EQUATION FOR THE sequence that can be used to find height,h,of the balloon after T minutes.
h=15T
c) use your equation from part b to find the height, in feet, of the hot air balloon after climbing for 8 minutes.
h=15T
h=15(8)
h=120 ft
Are these correct. Thanks for taking the time to check my work
