Best Answer: The formatting is poor for this, but you should be able to get something out of this.
R_T1 = (1 + T1) R_0
R_T2 = (1 + T2) R_0
R_T2 / R_T1 = ((1 + T2) R_0) / ((1 + T1) R_0)
R_0 cancels out.
R_T2 / R_T1 = (1 + T2) / (1 + T1)
Cross multiply and solve for .
R_T2 (1 + T1) = R_T1 (1 + T2)
R_T2 + T1 R_T2 = R_T1 + T2 R_T1
T1 R_T2 - T2 R_T1 = R_T1 - R_T2
(T1 R_T2 - T2 R_T1) = R_T1 - R_T2
= (R_T1 - R_T2) / (T1 R_T2 - T2 R_T1)
= (100 - 126.48) / (30C * 126.48 - 100C * 100) = 0.0042671
