Question description

Create a table to represent the information given below.
Your brother has the flu. At 6 p.m. you checked his temperature and it was 100.1°F. You then check it at 7 PM and it has increased to 101°F. You know a dangerous temperature is anything above 103°. 

a. If his temperature continues to increase at this rate, what time should you take him to the hospital? Create a table of values to justify your conclusion (it doesn't have to be pretty, just make sure it's clear what's going on).
b. Use your table to calculate the slope, and write an equation in slope intercept form.
c. What does the slope mean in this problem? 
d. What does the $\footnotesize{y}$-intercept represent? Does it have meaning in this problem?
e. Use your equation to graph a line. Mark the place on your graph time when your brother’s temperature is critical. What are the coordinates of this point?
f. Should you go to the emergency room now or can you wait until tomorrow morning?
g. Using this equation, determine what time his temperature was normal at 98.6°F?
