    s = -2.817H + 108.9 s=maximum sound levels in decibels. H = nuber of hours of exposure.
    s = -2.817(8) + 108.9... I know this is only -2.817 x 8 + 108.9 but for some reason I cant crunch the numbers please show me how you would crunch these numbers, please give as much detail as possible thanks

    Hi Leona,

    Your question troubles me. Is it that you are not allowed to use a calculator for this? Or are you struggling with doing long multiplication (manually)?

    There are web sites that can help you "crunch" the numbers. Try this explanation on How to Do Long Multiplication - wikiHow.
