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
