    Let y=mx+b the slope m can be found by the fact that an extra 120 miles (220-100) costs and extra $6 ($46-$40). After that, substitute y and x to find b.

    A car is traveling at a constant velocity. After two hours the car has traveled 90 miles. After five hours the car has traveled 225 miles. Assuming a linear equation fits this situation, what are the ordered pairs that you would use to find the linear equation?

    Hint: (2,90) means after 2 hours, the car travelled 90 miles.
