# Hot Air Balloons

### By: Nick, Rudransh, and Tejas

## Introduction

At the West Texas Balloon Festival, a hot-air balloon is sighted at an altitude of 800 feet and appears to be descending at a steady rate of 20 feet per minute. Spectators are wondering how the altitude of the balloon is changing as time passes.

## Tables

These tables start 5 minutes before the balloon was sighted and show the balloon's altitude every 5 minutes until it reaches the ground.

g-solve feature on the calculator we can tell the calculator what the # of feet it is (y) and it will tell us the #of minutes (x).
