75. Determine the temperature where both of these temperature scales have the same numerical reading.
Hint: Change the equation F = C + 32 by replacing the F with C since both F and C will have the same
numerical value for this particular temperature. Then solve the resulting equation to find C.

Future Value of an Investment. When money is invested and will receive simple interest, the future value
of the investment is given by S = P + Prt, where S is the future value of the investment, P is the principal
amount invested, r is the interest rate per time interval, and t is the time interval. (Usually the time interval
is in years so the interest rate will be the annual interest rate.)
