Missle Problem

  1. 1. Save the Moon! By, Amanda, Gabby, Alex and Cheyenne
  2. 2. Job Responsibilities <ul><li>Amanda - slide show </li></ul><ul><li>Gabby - slide show </li></ul><ul><li>Cheyenne - calculator worker </li></ul><ul><li>Alex - problem solver and music </li></ul>
  3. 3. Information <ul><li>Over the course of 8 days the Korean missile traveled 176,655 miles </li></ul><ul><li>Over the course of 7 days the American missile traveled 173,057 miles </li></ul>
  4. 4. Speed <ul><li>176655 miles/ 8 days = 23763.43 </li></ul><ul><li>173057 miles/ 7 days = 28321.50 </li></ul>
  5. 5. Best Fit Line
  6. 6. Equations <ul><li>176655+23763.43X Korean Missile </li></ul><ul><li>173057+28321.50X American Missile </li></ul><ul><li>237,614 miles from the earth to the moon </li></ul>
  7. 7. Work <ul><li>Divide the distance the missiles have traveled so far by the number of days traveled and you get the average speed (slope), and then find the equation of the line. </li></ul><ul><li>Solve for the variables in the equations. </li></ul><ul><li>If the distance cross at any point before 237,614 miles then the missiles will collide, saving the moon from total destruction. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Conclusion <ul><li>The only way to save the moon is to hit the Korean Missile at or before 237, 614 miles. If it doesn’t hit before this point the moon will be destroyed. </li></ul><ul><li>The missiles collided before the Korean missile got to the moon, therefore saving the moon. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Error <ul><li>A possible error with our answer could be that the moon is never at the same point. There could be various distances for how far the moon is away from the earth at a certain time. </li></ul>
