Bridge sections expand as the temperature goes up, so a small expansion gap is left between sections when a bridge is built. As the sections expand, the width of the gap gets smaller. An expansion gap is 16.8 millimeters wide at 10 degrees Celsius and decreases by 0.37 millimeters for every one degree Celsius rise in temperature. At what temperature does the gap decrease to 9.4 millimeters?
