Recent studies indicates that the average surface temperature of the earth has been rising rapidly. Some scientists have modeled the temperature by the linear function T = 0.03t + 8.50, where T is temperature in degree centigrade and t represents years since 1900.

  1. What do the slope and T-intercept represent?
  2. Use the equation to predict the average global surface temperature in 2100
