A tank initially contains 7 gallons of water. A faucet is opened and water begins pouring into the tank at a rate of 1.5 gallons per minute untill the tank is full. Which of the following represents the volume v of water , in gallons, in the tank as a function of time t , in minutes, that has elapsed since the faucet was opened?
A) V(t) = 1.5+ t
B) V(t) = 8.5+ t
C) V(t) = 1.5t
D) V(t) = 1.5t -7
E) V(t) = 1.5t +7

See a previously posted solution for that one here.
