[00:47:42] A quick freeze refrigerator can lower the internal temperature of a seven pound roast by 6.4 every 10 minuets. How much can the freezer lower the temperature of the roast in 2 and 1/2 hours

[00:00:18] Hi There
[00:00:26] what part of this problem seems to be confusing you

glenn (Customer)
[00:48:48] well.. all of it

Rick R (Tutor)
[00:01:13] ok
[00:02:07] we know that the fridge lowers the temperature by 6.4 degrees every 10 minutes
[00:02:14] and that the time period were talking about is 2.5 hours
[00:02:43] there are 15 10 minute periods in 2.5 hours
[00:04:02] does that make sense?

glenn (Customer)
[00:52:12] a little bit
[00:52:36] well yes it does make sense

Rick R (Tutor)
[00:05:18] do you know how you would solve the problem from this point?
