Find the height of the aircraft if the atmospheric pressure is 197 millimeters of mercury

  • pressure vs altitude -

    Unless you have been given an equation for atmospheric pressure vs. altitude, I don't see why this is considered an algebra question.

    You can find the answer using the table in this web site:

    The answer (interpolating in the table provided) is about 33,000 feet.
