On this question. a hypothermia occurs when a person's body temperature drops below 95 degrees fahrenheit. write and solve an inequality that describes how much lower the body temperature of a person with hypothermia will be than the body temperature of a person with a normal temperature of 98.6 degrees fahrenheit
98.6 – x < 95; x > 3.6
Let x = the degrees below normal temperature
The person will have hypothermia if
98.6 – x < 95 Subtract 98.6 from each side
-x < -3.6 Multiply each side by -1
x > 3.6
A person will have hypothermia if the body temperature is more than 3.6 °F below normal.
The diagram below shows that any value of x greater than 3.6 will satisfy the inequality.
answer set (b) 0.5, 3/4 80% is in order from least to greatest.
in order to compare rational numbers to each other, it is much easier if they are in the same form. typically, the best form in which to evaluate rational numbers is in decimals. in order to convert a percent to a decimal, you would divide the given percentage by 100. you can also accomplish the conversion by moving the decimal point over two places to the left. for example, the decimal value of 80% is 80/100, or 0.8. in order to convert a fraction to a decimal, you need to divide the numerator by the denominator. for example, 3/4 is 0.75. so, for choice (b) 0.5 3/4 (0.75), 80% (0.8) is the only choice in which the numbers are in order from least to greatest.
