question
The temperature measured in Kelvin (K) is the temperature measured in Celsius (C) increased by 273.15. This can be modeled by the equation K = C + 273.15. When solved for C, the equation is
C = K - 273.15
question
The equation f = v + at represents the final velocity of an object, f, with an initial velocity, v, and an acceleration rate, a, over time, t. Which is an equivalent equation solved for t?
t = f-v/a
question
The goals against average (A) for a professional hockey goalie is determined using the formula A = 60 . In the formula, g represents the number of goals scored against the goalie and t represents the time played, in minutes. Which is an equivalent equation solved for g?
At/60 = g
question
The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is y = mx + b, where x and y are coordinates of an ordered pair, m is the slope of the line, and b is where the line crosses the y-axis. Which is an equivalent equation solved for the slope, m?
m = V-b/x
question
Solve for a. 7a - 2b = 5a + b
a = 3/2b
question
The area, a, of an ellipse can be determined using the formula a = πxy, where x and y are half the lengths of the largest and smallest diameters of the ellipse. Which is an equivalent equation solved for y?

question
In physics class, Carrie learns that a force, F, is equal to the mass of an object, m, times its acceleration, a. She writes the equation as F = ma, then realizes that each of her homework problems asks her to solve for acceleration. She rewrites the formula as f/m = a. Using this formula, what is the acceleration of an object with F = 7.92 newtons and m = 3.6 kilograms? Express your answer to the nearest tenth.
2.2 m/s2
