Assume a 150 pound person burns 120 calories after 2 hours of sleep and 240 calories after 4 hours of sleep.
Part 1 (2 points): Use calories as the ycoordinate and hours as the xcoordinate. After writing two ordered pairs, find the slope. What does the slope represent in terms of the information provided?
Part 2 (2 points): Write an equation, in slope intercept form, to represent this data.
Part 3 (2 points): How many calories will this person burn after 8 hours of sleep? Using complete sentences, explain how the equation, slope, or graph can help to predict calories burned.#

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay here are some coordinates and we'll go from there. (2, 120) (4, 240) Okay so we have two points, which shows that the calories seem to increase as hours increase, so we have a positive m. According to the slope function. m = y2y1/x2x1 We know that the slope or m = 60

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So every increase in an hour of sleep burns 60 calories. So the yintercept is 0, since at 0 hours you burn 0 calories. y=mx + b Would give us y=60x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then simply, plug the appropriate amount of hours into the equation and you can figure out C.
