An equation is written to represent the relationship between the temperature in alaska during a snow storm, y, as it relate to the time in hours, x, since the storm started. a graph of the equation is created. which quadrants of a coordinate grid should be used to display this data?
either of ...
• quadrant 1 only
• quadrant 1 and 4 only
Time since the storm started is always positive. The values of x are positive in quadrants 1 and 4.
Temperatures in a blizzard are not always terribly cold. Some of the coldest snowstorms on record have temperatures in the range of +5 °F to +18 °F. These values are negative temperatures on the Celsius scale, so the quadrant used for plotting them will depend on the temperature scale you choose.
While temperatures in Alaska can be well below zero (on either the F or C temperature scales), the air usually has to warm up to the range indicated above before it can snow. US temperatures are generally reported using the Fahrenheit scale, but weather records are often kept using the Celsius scale.
I would be inclined to choose "Quadrant 1 and 4 only", but arguments can be made for "1 only" and "4 only" as suggested above.
1 and 4
The first and fourth quadrants
We are given that the time in hours is given on the x-axis and that the temperature is represented on the y-axis
Since we know that the time cannot be negative, therefore, the x-coordinate cannot be negative.
This means that for the x-axis, we can use the first and fourth quadrants
Since the temperature can be negative, therefore, the y-coordinate can either be positive or negative.
This means that for the y-axis, we can use the four quadrants
Combining the above two conditions, we can deduce that we can use only the first and fourth quadrants to represent the required data
Hope this helps :)
the first and fourth quadrants
We have that the time found hours is given on the x-axis and that the temperature is represented on the y-axis.
Let's first analyze time:
Time cannot be negative, therefore, the x coordinate cannot be negative therefore, for the x axis, we can use the first and fourth quadrants
Second let's analyze the temperature:
The temperature can be negative, therefore, the coordinate and can be positive or negative therefore, that for the y axis, we can use all four quadrants.
If we combine the two previous conditions, we can deduce that we can only use the first and fourth quadrants to represent the required data.
Time in hours=x-axis
That means that the quadrant 2 and quadrant 3 are not used.
Given that the temperature (y-axis) can be positive or negative the values are in the quadrants 1 and 4.
Therefore, the answer is Quadrant 1 and 4 only.
describing distributions is one of the key skills you’ll need to earn a high score on the ap statistics exam. if you need proof of this, just flip through some past exam questions, which can be found at the collegeboard website. you’ll notice that the first free response question is almost always a question requiring you to look at a graph and describe it.
