The temperature of a pizza after it has been delivered depends on how long it has been sitting on the family-room table.

  1. Sketch a reasonable graph of this situation. Be sure to label the axes.

    First quadrant graph, x axis labeled, time, y axis labeled, temperature, horizontal dashed line, about 1 fourth of way up, y axis, decreasing curve, opens up, starts almost at top of, y axis, approaches horizontal line.

  2. Should your graph have an asymptote? Why or why not?

    Would the pizza's temperature continuously decrease to below room temperature?
