# Cricket Problem

#### Storyboard Text

• when turning it up to 59 o F there were 76 chirps then it was still to cold so I turned it up to 65 and there was 100 chirps.
• When are you gonna turn the heat up?
• It's pretty easy to find out just use a linear equation!!﻿
• What is that noise? Why is it increasing the higher you turn the temperature up? ﻿
• ﻿﻿So you find the y- intercept which is the chirping rate and temperature. So you do 100-76 = 24 then 65-59=6 so that converts to 4/1m so now we have y=4/1 or 4x. Then to get B you 76-4(59) then B=76-236= -160 or 0 degrees. So the equation is y= 4x-160
• ﻿That makes sense so then to find different chirping rates you use your original equation right? Like Y=4x90-160 that gives you 200 chirps at 90 degrees. & for 120 chirps you would do 4x70-160 would give you 70 degrees.
• I'm pretty sure your right ! let's turn the heat up and see
• I'm going to the store you can stay here by yourself and all that chirping I know its going to get louder and be more annoying so you go right ahead. ﻿ ﻿
• HA Ha Ha I told you so !!!!﻿ ﻿
• ﻿You where right I had to get out of there those crickets where burning my ear drums
