A certain kind of ant can also be used as a thermometer. USE the formula to complete this table off values. T= 11s+ 39
S= speed in inches per minute
T= temperature in degrees Fahrenheit

S= 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 now I got these answers for the temps
T= 40, 61, 72, 83, 94 am I right????

  1. I think you are referring to one of your other posts.
    Whatever that was, plug 108 in for the chirps, then use that answer in the function you have in this question.

  3. Not sure how to do
    Either 113
    Or 306
    Both sound impossible

  4. From your previous post, for a number of chirps of 108, you got the temperature of 64, which I agreed was correct

    so now your new relation is Temp = 11(speed) + 39, so ....
    64 = 11speed + 39
    25 = 11 speed
    speed = 25/11 or appr 2.27 inches/minute
