Notkcots college bookstore has been selling one particular sweatshirt for a year. During the fall semester, 260 were sold at a price of $24 each. During the following spring semester, the price was changed to $29. Consequently 210 were sold.
Suppose that the number of sweatshirts sold (N) depends linearly on the price charged (X). Write and equation showing this dependence.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are a few key words here, "linearly" and "depends." So we know the equation will be a line and that the dependent variable, X, will be the price charged. You only need 2 points to draw a line, and we have those. When X=24, N=260. When X=29, N=210. The form for a line is ya=m(xb). All we need now is the slope m, which is rise/run. or change in y over change in x. That's (210260)/(2924) or 10. Now we have all our variables! Plug one of our points and the slope into the equation for a line: y210=10(x29)
