When the wind speed is 9 miles per hour, the wind-chill factor w is given by w = -17.366 + 1.19t, where t is the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit. If at noon yesterday the wind speed was 9 miles per hour, was the wind-chill factor greater than 0 ?

(1) The temperature at noon yesterday was greater than 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

(2) The temperature at noon yesterday was less than 20 degrees Fahrenheit

E.

stat 1: if t = 11 then w<0>0; insuff

stat 2: if t = 19 then w>0 if t = 11 then w<0; insuff.

together: same as stat 2. Insuff.

1: Could be 10.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 degrees (just easier to say 10 degrees) or 1million degrees. Insuff.

2: Could be 20 degrees or 0 degrees insuff.

1 and 2: still insuff. Could be 10 degrees or 20 degrees.

E
