    For this case we have the following data:

    • 3.8 is the distance below the surface of the water
    • 0.5 is the rate of descent, given in meters per minute

    In this way, the depth of the diver for a certain number of minutes is given by:

    3.8 + 0.5x, where x represents the number of minutes

    Answer:

    Question 1: 3.8 + 0.5x\\

    Question 2: x represents the number of minutes

    Solution

    1. The algebraic expression =  -0.5n – 3.8, where n is the number of minutes.

    2. Here the variable “n” represents the number of minutes.

    Thank you.
