Question details

Problem 5: Applications 1. The time interval between a persons initial infection with HIV and that persons eventual development of AIDS symptoms is an important issue. The method of infection with HIV affects the time interval before AIDS develops. One study of HIV patients who were infected by intravenous drug use found that 17% of the patients had AIDS after 4 vears., and 33% had developed the disease after 7 vears Page 1 of 2 Homework 1 Page 2 of 2 The relationship between the time interval and the percentage of patients with AIDS can be modeled accurately with a linear equation. Source: Epidemiolog- ical Review. a Write a linear function that models these data. b. Is the function in part (a) invertible? If yes, find its inverse and explain what does the inverse function measure (in terms of what the inputs and outputs are). If the inverse does not exist, then explain why. c. Use your findings from part (a) or (b) (or both) to predict the number of years before half of these patients will have AIDS
