Question

# On a particular day, the linear function$f(x)=-3.52 x+58.6$approximates the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit above the surface of Earth, where $x$ is in thousands of feet and $f(x)$ gives the temperature.(a) When the height is $5000$ feet, what is the temperature? Solve analytically.(b) When the temperature is $-15^{\circ} \mathrm{F}$, what is the height? Solve analytically.(c ) Explain how the answers in parts (a) and (b) can be supported graphically.
