A cylindrical container has a height of 24 inches. Currently, the container is filled with water to a height of 18 inches. A leakyfaucet drips into the container, causing the height of the water in the container to increase by 2 inches per hour. The equationbelow can be used to find t, the number of hours it would take to fill the container.18 + ?t = 24What number should be the coefficient of t?

Accepted Solution

Answer:2Step-by-step explanation:The rate at which the height increases is 2 inches per hour. That is the slope of the equation.18 + 2t = 24The coefficient of t is 2.
