if a bass has a length of x inches, where x is between 20 and 25 inches, its weight can be estimated by the formula W(x)=0.96x-14.4. a)what length of bass weighs 6.8 pounds? b)what lengths of bass weigh less than 6.8 pounds? i dont even know where to start...
ur answers must be between 20 and 25 W(x)=mass="pounds"
i still dont know where to start ive tried putting those values in the equation for x but the answers i get are unrealistic
ur given the mass 6.8 ur equation W(x)=0.96x-14.4 since W(x) = mass when x value is used so 6.8=0.96x-14.4 solve for x
ok i got 22.1. i think what i was doing wrong was putting the x value in for both x's in the equation
its too late at night i need some sleep :)
so the second part of the question would be any fish with a length "less than " 22.1 weigh less than 6.8 pounds, right?
yes =D goodnight
thanks soooo much
