(Graph Attached)
The graph below shows the revenue earned by a company in its first four quarters of operation. A line of best fit has been drawn on the graph.
Based on the linear model, how much revenue, in thousands of dollars, should the company earn in its 7th quarter of operation? Type your answer in the box below.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Step 1: Find the equation of that line, by finding the slope using the two points giving, Step2:substitute x=7 and find the value of y. Can you find the equation of that line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'm sorry but how would I find the equation from this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can see the two points on the line (1,10) and (3,30) So the slope is 10, now using the slopepoint form the equation of that line is (y10)/(x1)=10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Slope=m= (y2y1)/(x2x1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah so then that would go to...30  10 / 3  1 or 20 / 2. That simplifies to 10 / 1 or just 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Exactly, Now to find the equation, take any 1 point, use yy1/xx1=m=10 Then solve this to get the equation of that line and then just substitute x=7 to get the value of y :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i used (1,10) above^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0m = 10. x = 7 But what does b equal, cause if i'm gonna put it in an equation how would I get the "b" in y=mx+b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope, not in that manner,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1see to find the equation take any point (x,y) and a point you know (lets take (1,10) ) so now we know the slope is 10.. but the slope is also\[{(y2y1)\over(x2x1)}={(y10)\over(x1)}=m=10\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1taking x2,y2 as x,y and x1,y1 as 1,10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My brain is not working but thank you for the patience, it's 2 am lol. I'm just trying to finish this last question. But Ok yes that all equals m=10 and now that we know the slope, and we know the Y intercept is 10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because the point we chose is (1,10)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope, see the equation above^ just solve that, so what do we get\[y10=10(x1) \therefore y10=10x10 \therefore y=10x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so thats the equation of your line!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the intercept is zero, u need to slove the equation above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would the final answer be 70,000 it looks as if it would be right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0After estimating the graph it looks almost exactly that once it reaches 7, it would be at 70,000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh how could I not realize...the 1 is on 10,000, the 3 is on 30,000, the 4 is on 40,000 jeez I made this alot harder than it it LOL

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea thats your answer, see you dont always need the intercept to write the equation, if u got the slope and a point we get the equation as shown above^ And yes it was so simple, i could have told you the shortcut , but i went through the steps :P
