## Conversions with Graphs

For the following, create a graph and then determine the equation of the line.
- Inches to Centimeters with a graph, given:
- 0 inches = 0 cm
- 1 inch = 2.45 cm

- Farenheit to Centigrade with a graph, given:
- 0 Centigrade = 32 Farenheit
- 37 Centigrade = 98.6 Farenheit
- 100 Centigrade = 212 Farenheit

Now use the graph and the equation to do several conversions, compare your answers.

- Convert the speed of light from 2.99x10
^{8} m s^{-1} to miles per hour.
