Mike is saving to buy a car. He already has $500 in the bank, and he plans to save $250 each month. This relationship is represented by the equation y=250x+500, where x is the number of months and y is the total money saved. 1. Identify the slope. 2. Explain what the slope means in this problem. 3. Identify the y-intercept. 4. Explain what the y-intercept means in this problem.

    First remeber that the standard from of a line is Y = Mx + C
