    Post Radical Equations #4



    1. Determine the value of the constant, c. Round all answers to the nearest tenth when necessary

    2. Use this value of c to see what you would weigh in Banff, Alberta which is located 3965 miles from the Earth’s core. Has your weight has truly gone up 15 pounds?

    My attempt:

    imgur: the simple image sharer

    I believe I did #1 correctly and got c = 274849545

    I plugged that in for #2 and then w = 17 I believe

    I'm not even sure how to tell what a reasonable answer for these questions might be, so I'm not sure if I done anything correctly...

    You must have missed a digit from the value of c: 2748439545.
