Please solve this problem for me thanks?
a) Inversely Proportional
b) k = 52.5
c) 15 trucks
Firstly, we know that the number of trucks necessary is inversely proportional to the payload that each can carry (i.e. if one truck can carry more, you need fewer trucks).
So the relationship is:
with some constant
Hence the full equation is:
Finally, if each truck can carry 3.5 tons,
