Biologists have noticed that the chirping rate of crickets of a certain species is related to temperature and the relationship appears to be very nearly linear A cricket produces 113 chirps per minute at 70 F and 163 chirps per minute at 80 F a Find a linear equation that models the temperature 7 as a function of the number of chirps per minute N T X b What is the slope of the graph What does it represent The slope means that the temperature in Fahrenheit degrees increases X as rapidly as the number of cricket chirps per minute c If the crickets are chirping at 160 chirps per minute estimate the temperature Round your answer to the nearest whole number OF
