Q:
# an airplane 30000 feet above the ground begins descending at a rate of 2000 feet per minute. write an equation to model the situation. find the altitude of the plane after 5 minutes.

Accepted Solution

A:

A = 30,000 - 2000m where A=altitude and m = number of minutes

After 5 minutes A ( altitude) = 30,000 - 2000(5) = 20,000 feet

After 5 minutes A ( altitude) = 30,000 - 2000(5) = 20,000 feet
