# In drilling world’s deepest hole it was found that the temperature T in degree Celsius, x km below the earth’s surface was given by T = 30 + 25 (x – 3), 3 ≤ x ≤ 15. At what depth will the temperature be between 155°C and 205°C?

Answer :

Given,

T = 30 + 25(x – 3), 3 ≤ x ≤ 15

Where, T = temperature and

x = depth inside the earth

Now, Temperature should be between 155°C and 205°C

⇒ 155 < T < 205

⇒ 155 < 30 + 25(x – 3) < 205

⇒ 155 < 30 + 25x – 75 < 205

⇒ 155 < 25x – 45 < 205

Adding 45, we get

⇒ 200 < 25x < 250

Dividing by 25, we get

⇒ 8 < x < 10

Hence, between 8 to 10 cm depth, temperature varies from 155° C to 205° C.
