Given Linear function is
T = 0.02t + 8.50
a) Comparing it with y = mx + c, we get
m = 0.02 and c = 8.50
So, the slope is 0.02 and T-intercept is 8.50
b) Since t = 0 represent years since 1900, then t = 2100 – 1900 = 200 represents 2100.
So, T = 0.02 (200) + 8.5
T = 12.5oc
Therefore, The average global surface temperature in 2100 is 12.5oc
