B(t) = (32 – 4t)% when 0 ≤ t ≤ 8

= 0 %  for t > 8

Step-by-step explanation:

According to the question, when Camden left his house in the morning,

the charge in his battery was,

%

= 32 %

So, the charge in Camden’s phone, t hours after he left the house is given by,

B(t) = (32 – 4t) % ————(1)

Now clearly in (1),

0 ≤ t ≤

⇒ 0 ≤ t ≤ 8  since charge in mobile phone can’t have a negative percentage and time after Camden left home can’t be negative.

So,

B(t) = (32 – 4t)% when 0 ≤ t ≤ 8

= 0 %  for t > 8
