As always in this class, please use complete sentences when answering questions.
1. The temperature adjusted for wind-chill is a temperature that tells you how cold it feels, as a
result of wind and temperature. The table below shows the temperature adjusted for windchill as a function of wind speed and temperature.

a.
If the temperature is 00 F and the wind speed is 15 mph, how cold does it feel?
b.
If the temperature is 350 F, what wind speed makes it feel like 220 F?

c.
If the temperature is 250 F, what wind speed makes it feel like 200 F? (You will need to
assume that the wind chill changes in a linear way between data points in order to answer this
question; don’t estimate!)
d.
If the wind is blowing at 15 mph, what temperature feels like 00 F?
e.
Using the table, make two tables of the temperature adjusted for wind-chill as a function
of wind speed for fixed temperatures of 200 F and 00 F. (This is NOT difficult!) Is wind-chill a
linear function of wind speed?
2. You like pizza and you like cola. Which of the graphs in figures below represents your
happiness as a function of how many pizzas and how much cola you have if:
a. There is no such thing as too many pizzas and too much cola?
b. There is such a thing as too many pizzas or too much cola?
c. There is such a thing as too much cola but no such thing as too many pizzas?
d. Describe a possible scenario for the remaining graph.
