Q:
# A scuba diver is at an elevation of −38feet. The diver starts moving at a rate of −12 feet per minute. Identify an inequality that represents the number of minutes x it will take the diver to reach an elevation deeper than −200 feet.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:x = 13 1/2 or 13.5Step-by-step explanation:Flip Equation-38 - 12x = -200-12x -38 = -200Add 38 to both sides-12x -38 + 38 = -200 + 38-12x = -162Divide-12x/-12 = -162/-12x = 27/2Simplify27/2 = 13 1/2x = 13 1/2
