**Graphs & Real life**

Starter

The formula for converting degrees centigrade to Farenheit is

F = 1.8C + 32

(a) Explain why the graph of F against C would be a straight line.

(b) What label would be against the vertical axis?

(c) What label would be against the horizontal axis?

Activity

Match the real life situations to the graphs, and then to the equations.

A mobile phone tariff charges 5p per minute. The line rental for the phone is £10.

Write a formula for the cost, in pence, of the phone in terms of the minutes used.

Draw the graph that shows the cost of the mobile phone.

The formula for converting degrees centigrade to Farenheit is

F = 1.8C + 32

(a) Explain why the graph of F against C would be a straight line.

It is of the form y = mx + c.

(b) What label would be against the vertical axis?

Farenheit or F

(c) What label would be against the horizontal axis?

Centigrade, Celsius or C
