I've never seen the terminology 'slope-intercept' form before, but it seems fairly self-explanatory that it means 'of the form y = m + c'. Hence it is a simply rearrangement of the equation to start with, in order to make the subject:

This is the graph in 'slope-intercept' form. From here it is easy to see that gradient = and that y-intercept = 490. The easiest way to draw a straight-line graph, such as this one, is to plot the y-intercept, in this case (0, 490), then plot another point either side of it at a fair distance (for example substitute = -5 and = 5 to procure two more sets of co-ordinates). These can be joined up with a straight line to form a section of the graph, which would otherwise extend infinitely either side - use the specified range in the question for x-values, and do not exceed it (clearly here the limit of -values is 0 ≤ x ≤ 735, since neither x nor y can be negative within the context of the question - the upper limit was found by substituting = 0). In function notation, the graph is:

The graph of this function represents how the value of the function varies as the value of x varies. Looking back at the question context, this graph specifically represents how many wraps could have been sold at each number of sandwich sales, in order to maintain the same profit of $1470. When the profit is higher, the gradient is not changed (this is defined by the relationship between the $2 and $3 prices, not the overall profit) - instead the -intercept is higher:

Therefore we have gleaned that the new y-intercept is 531. Clearly I cannot see the third straight line. However the method for finding the equation of a straight line graph is fairly simple: 1. Select two points on the line and write down their coordinates2. The gradient of the line = 3. Find the change in (Δ4. Find the change in (Δ5. Divide the result of stage 3 by the result of stage 46. This is your gradient7. Take one of your sets of coordinates, and arrange them in the form , where your is the gradient you just calculated8.

jettpaquinYes i'm sure you're correct

dwilburn01Yes, I think this is correct

Misspaige5150My answer isNo

lorenavh81No .
