a) Find and interpret the maximum value of

Maximum value:

We can interpret this as:

** A. ** the most water in the tank at any time in the given time interval is the initial amount.** B. ** the amount of time it takes for all of the water to drain from the tank is 7 hours.** C. ** the height of the tank in feet is 7 feet.** D. ** the fastest the water is draining at any time in the given time interval is 7 feet per second.

b) Interpret both the vertical and horizontal intercepts of

The vertical intercept:

** A. ** is the amount of water left in the tank after 7 hours.** B. ** is the amount of time it takes for all of the water to drain from the tank.** C. ** is the initial volume of water in the tank.** D. ** is the fastest speed at which the water is draining from the tank.

The horizontal intercept:

** A. ** is the initial volume of water in the tank.** B. ** is the amount of water left in the tank after 7 hours.** C. ** is the fastest speed at which the water is draining from the tank.** D. ** is the duration of time in hours it takes for all of the water to drain from the tank.
