Q:
# A tree that is 3 feet tall is growing at a rate of 1 foot per year. A 5-foot tree is growing at a rate of 0.75 foot per year. The ordered pair (t, h) represents the time in years, t, at which the trees are at height, h. Which ordered pair represents the number of years elapsed when the trees are at the same height? (6, 9) (12, 14) (7, 10.25) (8, 11)

Accepted Solution

A:

h1=3+t

h2=5+3t/4

3+t=5+3t/4

-2=3t/4-4t/4

-2=-t/4

8=t

[(8,11)]

h2=5+3t/4

3+t=5+3t/4

-2=3t/4-4t/4

-2=-t/4

8=t

[(8,11)]
