 Question 633577: I am trying to show linear examples in real life. I am still a bit confused, therefore I am having issues with making up an example. Please help this is for my homework. I know how linear equations are used : Travel Temperature Conversion Exchange Rates Cell Phones I just don't understand how to put it into an example. Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(16523)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Travel: You start for home which is 1000 miles away, your av speed is 60 mph Let t = driving time Let d = distance from home d = -60t + 1000 Example: after 10 hrs (t=10) driving you would be 400 mi (d) from home : Temperature Conversion: convert Fahrenheit to Celsius C = (F-32) When it's 86 degrees f, what is it Celsius C = (86-32) C = *54 C = 30 degrees C : Exchange Rates Convert dollars (d) to baht, the Thai currency. \$1 = 20 baht (b) b = 20d : Cell Phones Cost vs minutes, Monthly fee = \$10 First 100 min are free, .25 for each minute thereafter C = .25(m-100) + 10
