# Application of linear equations

Find a record-breaking temperature (in degrees Celsius) for a town or city in a country other than the United States. Include the name of the town and country along with the temperature, and what record was broken. Give the formula for converting degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit. Using the formula, show how to convert the measurement to degrees Fahrenheit.

The equation C=mx+b can be used to model the monthly cost, C, of a cell phone plan where b is the flat monthly cost, m represents the cost in dollars per minute and x is the number of minutes used in the month. Choose a flat monthly rate and cost per minute and insert the values you have chosen for m and b into the equation. Then use this equation to find the total monthly cost, C, if 68 minutes are used.
