Question 1.

The table shows the volume of water released by Hoover Dam over a certain period of time. Graph the data, and find the slope and y-intercept from the graph. Then write the equation for the graph in slope-intercept form.

Answer:

Graph the ordered pairs from the table and draw a line through the points.

Slope = \(\frac{150000-75000}{10-5}\) = \(\frac{75000}{5}\) = 15000

Find the slope using two points on the graph by

Slope(m) = \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\)

where

(x_{2}, y_{2}) = (10, 150000) and (x_{1}, y_{1}) = (5, 75000)

b = 0 Read the y-intercept from the graph

y = 15000x Substituting the value of slope (m) and y intercept in y = mx + b

Example 2.

Elizabeth’s cell phone plan lets her choose how many minutes are included each month. The table shows the plan’s monthly cost y for a given number of included minutes x. Write an equation in slope-intercept form to represent the situation.

Step 1

Notice that the change in cost is the same for each increase of 100 minutes. So, the relationship is linear. Choose any two ordered pairs from the table to find the slope.

Step 2

Find the y-intercept. Use the slope and any point from the table.

Step 3’

Substitute the slope and y-intercept.

y = mx + b Slope-intercept form

y = 0.06x + 8 Substitute 0.06 for m and 8 for b.

**Reflect**

Question 2.

What is the base price for the cell phone plan, regardless of how many minutes are included? What is the cost per minute? Explain.

Answer:

y = 0.06x + 8 From the example 2

The base price = $8 It is the y-intercept, the cost of plan when 0 minutes are included

Cost per minute = $0.06 It is the slope, the cost of call per minute

Question 3.

**What If?** Elizabeth’s cell phone company changes the cost of her plan as shown below. Write an equation in slope-intercept form to represent the situation. How did the plan change?

Answer:

Slope = \(\frac{35-30}{200-100}\) = \(\frac{5}{100}\) = 0.05

Find the slope using two points on from the table by

Slope(m) = \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\)

where

(x_{2}, y_{2}) = (200, 35)) and

(x_{1}, y_{1}) = (100, 30)

30 = 0.05(100) + b Substituting the value of slope (m) and (x, y) in the slope intercept form to find y intercept (b):

30 = 5 + b y = mx + b

b = 30 – 5 = 25

y = 0.05x+25 . Substituting the value of slope (m) and y intercept in slope-intercept form.

y = mx + b

The base price increase to $\$25$and

the cost per minutes decreases

to$\$0.05$ per minute.

Question 4.

A salesperson receives a weekly salary plus a commission for each computer sold. The table shows the total pay, p, and the number of computers sold, n. Write an equation in slope-intercept form to represent this situation.

Answer:

Slope = \(\frac{700-550}{6-4}\) = \(\frac{150}{2}\) = 75

Find the slope using two points on from the table by

where

(x_{2}, y_{2}) = (6, 700) and (x_{1}, y_{1}) = (4, 550)

700 = 75(6) + b Substituting the value of slope (m) and (x, y) in the slope intercept form to find y intercept (b):

700 = 450 + b y = mx + b

b = 700 – 450 = 250

p = 75n + 250 Substituting the value of slope (m) and y intercept in slope-intercept form. y = mx + b

Note that p is represented by y axis and n is represented by x axis

Question 5.

To rent a van, a moving company charges a daily fee plus a fee per mile. The table shows the total cost, c, and the number of miles driven, d. Write an equation in slope-intercept form to represent this situation.

Answer:

Slope = \(\frac{50-45}{20-10}\) = \(\frac{5}{10}\) = 0.5

Find the slope using two points on from the table by

Slope(m) = \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\)

where

(x_{2}, y_{2}) (20, 50) and (x_{1}, y_{1}) = (10, 45)

50 = 0.5(20) + b Substituting the value of slope (m) and (x, y) in the slope intercept form to find y intercept (b): y = mx + b

b = 50 – 10 = 40

c = 0.5d + 40 Substituting the value of slope (m) and y intercept in slope-intercept form. y = mx + b

Note that c is represented by y axis and d is represented by x axis

y = mx + b

Question 5.

Use your equation to determine the temperature at an altitude of 5000 feet.

Answer:

Equation for the given table is y = -0.004x + 59.

We need to determine the temperature (y), measured in degrees Fahrenheit, at an aLtitude of 5000 feet (x). Put the given value of x into the equation.

y = -0.004 . 5000 + 59

y = -20 + 59

y = 39

So the temperature at an altitude or 5000 feet is 39 degrees Fahrenheit.

Question 7.

The table shows the costs of a large cheese pizza with toppings at a local pizzeria. Graph the data, and find the slope and y-intercept from the graph. Then write the equation for the graph in slope-intercept form.

Answer:

Plot the given values of x and y on the graph

From the table we can see that the rate of change is constant, so we can use the ratio \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\) to find the slope.

The relationship is linear. Choose two points from the table and put it in the calculation,

m = \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\)

m = \(\frac{12-10}{2-1}\)

m = \(\frac{2}{1}\)

m = 2

The starting point on the graph is (0, 8), i.e. (0, b). So value of the y-intercept is 8. → b = 8

The standard form of the linear equation is y = mx + b, so include the obtained values for the slope and y-intercept:

y = 2x + 8

Question 8.

The table shows how much an air-conditioning repair company charges for different numbers of hours of work. Graph the data, and find the slope and y-intercept from the graph. Then write the equation for the graph in slope-intercept form.

Answer:

plot the given values of x and y on the graph.

From the table we can see that the rate of change is constant, so we can use the ratio \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\) to find the slope.

The relationship is linear. Choose two points from the table and put it in the calculation.

m = \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\)

m = \(\frac{150-100}{2-1}\)

m = \(\frac{50}{1}\)

m = 50

The starting point on the graph is (0, 50), i.e. (0, b). So value of the y-intercept is 50. → b = 50

The standard form of the linear equation is y = mx + b, so include the obtained values for the slope and y-intercept:

y = 50x + 50

Question 9.

A friend gave Ms. Morris a gift card for a Number of car local car wash. The table shows the linear relationship of how the value left on the Amount left on the card relates to the number of car washes.

a. Write an equation that shows the number of dollars left on the card.

Answer:

Slope = \(\frac{18-30}{8-0}\) = \(\frac{-12}{8}\) = -1.5 Find the slope using two points from the table by Slope(m) = \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\) where (x_{2}, y_{2}) = (8, 18) and (x_{1}, y_{1}) = (0, 30)

b = 30 Read the y-intercept from the table (when x = 0)

y = -1.50x + 30 Substituting the value of slope (m) and y intercept in slope-intercept form. y = mx + b

b. Explain the meaning of the negative slope in this situation.

Answer:

The negative sloe means that the amount on the card is decreased by $1.5 per car wash. Meaning of negative slope

c. What is the maximum value of x that makes sense in this context? Explain.

Answer:

0 = -1.50x + 30 The maximum value of s that makes sense in this context is when $0 is left on the card i.e. y = 0

1.5x = 30

x = \(\frac{30}{1.5}\) = 20

The maximum value of $x = 20$

The tables show linear relationships between x and y. Write an equation in slope-intercept form for each relationship.

Question 10.

Answer:

The slope is calculated by:

m = \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\)

Put the given values of x and y from the table into the calculation. Choose two points.

m = \(\frac{0-(-1)}{-1-(-2)}\)

m = \(\frac{0+1}{-1+2}\)

m = \(\frac{1}{1}\)

m = 1

The standard form of the linear equation is y = mx + b, so include the obtained values of x, y, and the slope to get y-intercept.

For x and y, choose one point from the table.

y = mx + b

-1 = 1 • (-2) + b

-1 = -2 + b

-1 + 2 = b

b = 1

Equation in slope-intercept form is: y = 1x + 1 → y = x + 1

Question 11.

Answer:

The slope is calculated by:

m = \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\)

Put the given values of x and y from the table into the calculation. Choose two points.

m = \(\frac{4-14}{1-(-4)}\)

m = \(\frac{-10}{1+4}\)

m = \(\frac{-10}{5}\)

m = \(-\frac{10}{5}\)

m = -2

The standard form of the linear equation is y = mx + b, so include the obtained values of x, y, and the slope to get y-intercept.

For x and y, choose one point from the table.

y = mx + b

4 = -2 • 1 + b

4 = -2 + b

4 + 2 = b

b = 6

Equation in slope-intercept form is: y = 2x + 6
