Mason owns a trucking company. For every truck that goes out, Mason must pay the driver $13 per hour of driving and also has an expense of $1 per mile driven for gas and maintenance. On one particular day, the driver drove an average of 30 miles per hour and Mason's total expenses for the driver, gas and truck maintenance were $258. Write a system of equations that could be used to determine the number of hours the driver worked and the number of miles the truck drove. Define the variables that you use to write the system.
The required system of equations are
y = 30x
13x + y = 258
Let x represent the number of hours
that the driver worked.
Let y represent the number of miles that the truck drove.
For every truck that goes out, Mason must pay the driver $13 per hour of driving and also has an expense of $1 per mile driven for gas and maintenance. If on a particular day, his total expenses for the driver, gas and truck maintenance were $258, it means that
13x + y = 258
On that particular day, the driver drove an average of 30 miles per hour.
Speed = distance/time
It means that
y/x = 30
y = 30x

"it's not the heat, it's the humidity". that's a partly valid phrase you may have heard in the summer, but it's actually both. the heat index, also known as the apparent temperature, is what the temperature feels like to the human body when relative humidity is combined with the air temperature. this has important considerations for the human body's comfort. when the body gets too hot, it begins to perspire or sweat to cool itself off. if the perspiration is not able to evaporate, the body cannot regulate its temperature. evaporation is a cooling process. when perspiration is evaporated off the body, it effectively reduces the body's temperature. when the atmospheric moisture content (i.e. relative humidity) is high, the rate of perspiration from the body decreases. in other words, the human body feels warmer in humid conditions. the opposite is true when the relative humidity decreases because the rate of perspiration increases. the body actually feels cooler in arid conditions. there is direct relationship between the air temperature and relative humidity and the heat index, meaning as the air temperature and relative humidity increase (decrease), the heat index increases (decreases).
