(a) Ten inches of snow is equivalent to about one inch of rain.1 Write an equation for the amount of precipitation, measured in inches of
So you're looking for the amount of rain given the amount of snow. First let's label y as the amount of rain and x as the amount of snow. To get the equation use a ratio. (1 in rain)/(10 in snow) = y/x Cross multiply to get the final equation. \[y = (1/10) x\] x= amount of snow in inches y= amount of rain in inches
