math (altitude)

posted by .

An airplane flying at an altitude of 31,000 feet descends at a rate of 1,200 feet per minute. If the plane descends for 15 minutes, what would its altitude be in feet?: *
13,000
23,000
18,000
21,000

  • math (altitude) -

    Calculate how far it falls in 15 minutes and subtract that from the original altitude

    i mean of altitude a definition and picture

  • math (altitude) -

    1200*15 = 18,000
    31,000 - 18,000 = 13,000 ft.
