A scuba diver was exploring a reef 32.12m below sea level. The diver ascending to the surface at a rate of 8.8m/min.

 

Write an equation to model the situation. Use the formula d=rt.

Or an alternative would be     d = depth in meters  (NEGATIVE since it is BELOW sea level)

 

d = -32.12 + 8.8 t    meters

So using what you said in the problem, d = rt ( distance = rate x time), we can apply things from the problem into it. The distance is 32.12m and the rate is 8.8m/min.

So d = 32.12 and r = 8.8

32.12 = 8.8t

Then you can divide both sides by 8.8 to get \(t = 3.65\) \(minutes\)
