Lunar Dilemma

  1. 1. Lunar Dilemma By: Kaylee Schrengost, Ashley Keister, Marissa Innerst, & Katie Marvel
  2. 2. Equations of Best Fit Lines <ul><li>X= # of days the missile traveled </li></ul><ul><li>Y= miles the missile has traveled </li></ul><ul><li>Distance to the moon- 238,897 miles </li></ul><ul><li>Y=24,388.1X - 21,474.4 </li></ul><ul><li>Y=2,176.4X - 40,085.1 </li></ul>
  3. 3. Solving For X <ul><li>Y=24,388.1X – 21,474.4 </li></ul><ul><li>Y=2,176.4X – 40,085.1 </li></ul><ul><li>24,388X – 21,474.4 = 26,176.4X – 40,085.1 </li></ul><ul><li>18,610.7 = 1,788.3X </li></ul><ul><li>10.40692278 = X </li></ul>
  4. 4. Solving For Y <ul><li>X = 10.40692278 </li></ul><ul><li>Y = 24,388.1(10.40692278) – 21,474.4 </li></ul><ul><li>Y = 253,805.0735 – 21,474.4 </li></ul><ul><li>Y = 232,330.67 </li></ul>
  5. 5. Solutions <ul><li>X = 10.41 days </li></ul><ul><li>Y = 232,330.67 miles </li></ul><ul><li>If the American missile follows the planned trajectory, it will blow up the North Korean missile before it has a chance to destroy the moon. </li></ul>
